@EvilTwin: I concur. I also did the "Assassin's Creed-a-thon" just so I could get caught up on the story for Ass Bro and AC1 was like pulling teeth. I'm sure when it came out, the game was amazing, but the leaps that were made between AC1 and AC2 are enough that AC1 can be labeled as fairly rough game. You hit the nail on the head. Had AC1 not received the hype that it did, AC2 never would have come out and turned the series into a great series.
