Episode 29 - Respectful. Wait, No, Badass - Assassin's Creed 2

You Broke Her Heart! Now I'll Cast Your Pod!

Welcome back to the show, today we're going to be talking about Ubisoft's follow up to 2007's Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed 2. Released two years after the first, AC2 is widely considered to have successfully iterated on the concepts the first game pioneered and has become warmly remembered by fans of the series. This, however, does not keep the game safe from retrospective criticism, and we take a look at what about this game worked at the time and still works now and a few areas that time has not been particularly kind to. We talk about parsing the game's combat system, climbing all over a meticulously rendered city, cruising with whores and dropping cheddar.

Thanks for listening this week and tune in next time when we take our first ever look at an entire series, talking about the Pokémon franchise.
