I never played the first one but none-the-less I gathered from your review this game is excellent. I did not see you mention this but did there happen to be any achievements in the game? I am guessing there must be because pretty much all games have them these days.

I am leaning toward getting this game based solely on your review, so good job on that.

Achievements have always been required for Xbox 360 games. Microsoft insists.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

You'll actually earn a good portion of AC2's achievements just by completing the mandatory story missions, though there are some optional ones you can go after once you're finished with everything else. I've had the game for a little over a week and I've only got a few more left.

I've not really been trying with the achievements and ended up with 845 upon finishing the game. You get a huge chunk of points by just going along the story (30 for completing a chapter, 100 for completing the game), and you'll pick up some of the optional stuff naturally as you play.
