Yes, finished AC2 and this looks OK. Bloodlines... hm... Does it just consist of the mission with the same name from AC2? :P

Posted by Ventilaator

I absolutely despised everything AC1 stood for, and I borrowed this just to see how it works on the PSP.
 
And I finished it, and loved it.
Can anyone tell me why exactly did that happen?

Posted by Andrew

I really want AC2, but I think ill just wait for it to drop to under 40 bucks...

@Ventilaator: What exactly was it the first one stood for that you didnt like?
Posted by Griddler

Hell to the yes.

Wow this sucks PSP quick look and no AC2 quick look? blah

Posted by MysteriousBob

Ryan really fucking hates the English, doesn't he?

Posted by The_Philosopher

I wonder if this is any good.

Altair is such an awesome character

Edited by ToxicFruit

was there really need for this kind of game on the psp ?

Posted by Sinkwater
@Ventilaator: No idea.  This looks like a way shittier version of a game you hate.
Edited by Death_Burnout

I believe the outer jump thing was in the first one, but i digress, you probably knew that, you do a lot of it in AC2 no doubt.

Critic Dog says this looks "Rrrrruff!"

Posted by Th3_James

in AC1 you could do air assassinations

Edited by Vorbis

The story isn't bad, its more interesting than AC1 really. At the end it does link Altair to Ezio so it fills in some gaps.
 
As for the PS3 unlocks, theres 6 bosses all with weapons, as you kill them you can use those weapons in AC2.
 
Would recommend playing with a PS3 controller if you can, makes the controls alot easier.

lol he said you can use the left trigger to turn the camera

Posted by RobotHamster

Yea this does look decent but for the story I just looked it up.  I went on the Assassin's Creed wiki to better understand what the hell was going on and just read the plot for this one which kinda added more to the overall story which i think i finally get.  Plus i don't have a psp yet soo I couldn't get if even if i wanted to.

Posted by MeatSim

They couldn't even get the voice of Altair? This whole game feels kinda half-assed.

Posted by Origina1Penguin

Air assassinations are in the first game. You have to be in the air when you trigger the hidden blade assassination move. Anyways, I think this game should not have been made. There is zero fuck citizens, it looks crazy clunky, and it has many technical performance hitches.

Everything. I gave that game several chances, forced myself to play it for several hours, found it absolutely disgusting, didn't play it for a month and then tried again, still hated it. Then again, and still hated it. 
 
I hated it from the immersion-breaking set-up (You are actually Desmond, and we'll randomly make you play as him as you walk from your bedroom to a magic chair and back) to the repetitive 3-things-you-do-for-15-hours gameplay.
 
I consider it one of the worst games I've ever played.

What a miserable failure of a game.

Posted by carlthenimrod

That whole thing was awkward and silly.

Posted by Kohe321

Looks like something that I would not be interested in :<

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Doesn't look terrible, but doesn't look very great either, especially with AC2 out at the same time.

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

   
I had the same reaction as Vinny at 5:42

Posted by Ventilaator

If anyone was interested in this before, but was turned off by the quick look, I'd like to mention that this wasn't also the best representation of the game.
 
On the approach to the boss-guy, I didn't use my sword once, I knifed the guy on the left you can see at 12:50  , ran past him, climbed up the wall there and was able to grab and throw the guy you can see at 14:40 to his death.
 
Running like an idiot and killing everyone works, but it also does in HItman, and who plays Hitman like that?
 
And Ryan could have killed the guards he was targeting from the roof at 22:50, he would just need to use his throwing knives. 

Posted by Skillface

You could do Air assassinations in AC1.

Edited by cstrang

Some of the animations in this game look horrible, choppy as hell.  And Altiar's model looks strange.

Posted by CrashTanuki

Another crappy Ubisoft game on the PSP. They should stick to localizing Japanese games.

You need to play more games if you really think that...

"My fight money!"

 I like how half-assed the guards seem in this game with friendly fire and randomly jumping to their deaths instead of looking and deciding if they can make it or not.

Ryan and Vinny had the misfortune of recording a quick look when cypress was having bad sand storms

Posted by Brackynews
Wowww.. that draw distance is garbage. Might as well be Tatooine.
Ah well, came bundled with my new PSP-3000, so no reason not to bash through it during commutes.  Though I really believe Chinatown Wars reskinned with Creed would be a brilliant mashup.  Add a bit more architecture  perspective and zooming... and you could have 3-4 layers of altitude to traverse across. Fantastic.  Hell, they could probably do a global search and replace for the name of each gang, weapon, and drug, and not have to re-write any dialogue. ;-)
"Ahh, ALTAIR. 'Bout time you got here. Those fuckin' TEMPLARS have stolen my shipment of POTS. Get them back, and no need to play it safe. Take this LONGSWORD and ventilate those fools."

Does anyone on Giant Bomb believe that is what QL's are for?  There's a tab called Trailers right there.

This game looks so empty and lonely.

Posted by spiceninja

My biggest issue with this series has always been with Altairs appereal. He's supposed to be this amazing assassin and yet he wears those white robs and stands out like a sore thumb. Why not wear some peasant clothes to blend in a little more? That would make him a lot harder to find instead of the guards looking for a nut job running on rooftops in this white jumpsuit.

That's an easy thing to say, but I do play a lot of games and other than Splinter Cell Double Agent, Assassin's Creed 1 is the only game I've ever seriously despised.

game looks horrible, and im a huge assassins creed fan

Posted by trophyhunter

Not everything in the universe can be explained. Perhaps you are merely insane. o_O
AC1 was a gem, and this looks like trash... to me. >_>
Posted by CaptainMax

That fire looks really bad. And also sounds alot more like running water then fire...

Posted by fox01313

Hrm, now curious on exactly what will happen with getting this & connecting it to AC2 on the PS3. Course don't have either one so maybe it will be discovered later as looking forward to playing AC2 on the 360 & trying to figure out exactly what this little PSP game will do for the PS3 version of AC2.
Posted by Rowr

you guys gotta remember, this is on a psp.

Long-ass quick look videos are one of the very best things about Giant Bomb :)

Also, after loving the PSP game so much I'm actually going to go back and give AC1 another go
Posted by MachoFantastico

Looks interesting, but hate that they've changed the voice actor for Altair. He's a great character, but the voice change ruins it.

Posted by Death_Burnout
@Ventilaator: Yeah, the fact that you liked this and didn't like that, is so insane...you owe the first game another chance!

Well, the issue is that I've already given the game 5 chances or so...
