    I was a bit of a fan of the console versions of Assassin's Creed II, and when I saw this at the game store, I thought it would be a neat sequel with some gimmicks. I underestimated this game: It has great voice acting (Escpecially for a DS game), ingenious combat, great platforming, and the entire game is rather long and has perfect pacing... Not to mention some of the best looking visualsI was a bit of a fan of the console versions of Assassin's Creed II, and when I saw this at the game store, I thought it would be a neat sequel with some gimmicks.

Not to mention some of the best looking visuals I've seen on a DS. The only problem I can think of with this game is that the platforming sometimes seems repedetive, but for me that's easily overshadowed by the combat, which for me was the highlight of the game. It has a great stealth mechanic that plays like, if not better than, the console versions. It's probably the best a 2d stealth game gets. Collapse

  1. Even if characters and events are charming and thrilling, gameplay mechanics are dull and a bit flat.
  2. A missed opportunity to right the first game's wrongs. A by-the-numbers platforming experience.
  3. Assassin's Creed II: Discovery is a step forward compared to his predecessor, but it doesn't feel like it's been developed with the NDS in mind, because of the lack of any touch screen interactions. The gameplay is too linear and sometimes repetitive. All in all, you might consider it only if you're a big fan of the brand, but there's no other reason to get excited.
