Release date: 2009
Version played: Xbox 360 in 2014
+ story, characters and locations all at their equal-best
+ introduction of the more modern setting of the Creed itself
+ you get to punch-on with the bloody Pope!
– climbing is not fantastic, even with the superior two-button system
– I ran into lots of strange audio glitches
– chapters 12 and 13 sold as DLC
> I know the climbing gets more responsive (though ‘better’ is debatable)
> I know the combat gets easier (though again, ‘better’ is debatable)
> I know the general controls get more useable (such as holding down for multiple looting)
Should you play this game: Absolutely.
