Yeah, Assassin creed 2 was my favorite. I will always remember that fight scene between 2 large groups of enemies that your are in the middle of.Brotherhood is also great, and of course Revelations is also good that adds nothing new that is good. 3 and 4 were misfires for me and I could never play through 1 when I tried.
I love the timing combat of the assassin creed games. Countering and knowing when to strike is fun as hell.
Here's my list of favorite Assassin Creed games. I also recently play Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles and it was AWFUL.
How long does it take for the combat to get fun in the first Risen? I was a few hours in and the combat was just not good to keep my attention.
Ummmm, hm. I think the combat in Risen is not good in general really. It is kind of just simple block then mash on the X button. So if the combat is the thing you need to enjoy a game then RIsen is not for you. I enjoyed the character building/RPG stuff and doing all them quests.
@hailinel: That is the one thing that you call bullshit on? Sure, there are more games with nostalgic charm then I originally applied in my first few statements. Still does not take it away and I still think it is rather rare in games.
