I picked it up an started playing... Over all the game play is basically the same as the first. The cut scene graffics are pretty horriable! But the in game looks decent. The story line ties in pretty well... Other than that I'll have to play the game some more to judge.

It's about 100 times better than the first game. There are a TON of other aspects that play into the story this time... it's not just 'go here, investigate, kill this guy, come back'. It's a lot more in-depth this time and now that they let the main character speak and interact more you get more of a connection to the story.
Overall I think this game is completely awesome. Yes it shares a lot of things from the first game, but it improves on just about everything while still adding some awesome new things to the series. Definitely worth the money. I'm probably 6-7 hours into it and it does not even come close to getting boring.

I was slightly bitter about the first one. I really had to force myself to finish it. I'm going to wait a bit and see what happens with this one.

This one is way more diverse. So much to do it's almost mind boggling. You don't even have to play the main story really if you don't want to, there are so many side quests and things to do and explore. I'll easily put this out there as one of my favorite games so far this year.
The first one, while I really liked it, was really repetitive and got boring after the first 4 or 5 missions, but this game has you changing things up so often and does a really great job at tying everything you do into the story. You can tell they took their time with it.

Do you need to play the first, to like the second?
11-19-2009, 09:33 PM
Not at all. If you like hunting things down, stabbing people, jumping across rooftops and generally being a badass, then just get the second one... it's much better.

I would say no..... But if you want the full story it would be best to play the first.
That's funny cause all I did was side missions yesterday, and collecting the treasures, oh and robbing the crap out of ppl to get that next upgrade LOL.

I finished the story tonight... I still have a lot of side missions to do and things to find. Overall, no joking, I think this is probably one of the best games I have ever played in terms of gameplay, keeping it interesting and storyline. There will certainly be a third one, and I can't wait to see what they'll do with the series next.
I don't want to spoil anything, but if you've only played the first game, that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the story here. It's deep, and extremely well developed. If you like any kind of action games with an awesome storyline, you owe it to yourself to play this.

I cant wait for the 3rd to find out what happens. the only thing I have to do is find all the feathers I have like 50 when you get 50 you get a ba war hammer.

You need to find all of the glyphs on the special buildings. I only have a few of them so far... they're hard to find.
