Yes it's a brilliant idea, you will love every single minute of the games. Also the hidden history listen you learn is so cool, the ending is cool

But AC3 is a different matter, the ending sucked with that one,

[QUOTE="Kawaiius, post: 6042460]Is the first one necessary? i can't really seem to remember it.[/QUOTE]

No, but AC2 is and it is the best out of all the AC games and i see many agreeing with me on that...

AC3 is great, but suffers a lot with loop holes in the story and the fact it is heavy on DESMOND and not on the Assassin

AC3 was my last AC ever. I feel like ubisoft is winging this too much. AC4 looks unoriginal and boring. AC2 will always be the best.

AC2 is the best of the series flat out true... AC4 i am going to get and i want to see what they can do to make the series excellent again

But if the NAVAL QUESTS are as awesome as the AC3 one's, it will be awesome INDEED... But what next

The Ezio trilogy I can't recommend enough, If I had the time I would play through them myself again. Whereas AC3 I can't recommend at all, biggest disappointment last year for me. Most incoherent game I've played in a long time, I'd recommend the first AC over 3. Just my opinion though.

[QUOTE="ElieKatzQueer, post: 6046336]Well the king george DLC that comes out tomorrow could be promising. I think the writers are pretty dang smart, honestly.[/QUOTE]

Part 1 was awesome, I'm going to play part 2 (the one you are referring to) when I get home tonight :)

That's what I meant. What did you think? I kind of liked the transforming into the eagle onto the roof thing.

So are you getting the game or are you going to play the first and second one and the VITA game... If not

Go ahead and play AC3 until AC4 comes out... But if you want to follow the whole story from start to AC3, then play AC1/AC2 first

I'm fairly new to Assassin's Creed but I love the series, and from what I can tell I seem to be one of the only people who actually likes the original game, too.

Anyway, the Ezio Trilogy is superb, you definitely made a great choice picking that. Assassin's Creed II or Brotherhood is the best in the franchise IMO; it's hard to tell, since they are fantastic games. ACII has more story-driven aspects, while Brotherhood goes absolutely crazy with the amount of missions and other distractions you can get up to. It's massive too, in terms of the game world.

Anyway, dig in and take your time -- these games are meant to be soaked up slowly, so enjoy!

I loved it. It seemed a bit longer than the first and I really enjoyed running around the environment more than the first DLC too, though I DID enjoy it in the first DLC as well, just that its even better in the second part (I won't say anything of the details so that I won't spoil it for others). Story is awesome! Has me hooked and waiting for part 3.

Kawaiius: enjoy the trilogy! That's some good gaming right there.

[QUOTE="claud3, post: 6053116]Just play from the first one right up to the current one, which is AC3 and if you can play the one on the VITA

when you get too AC4, all will be understandable[/QUOTE]

I agree with zem.

[QUOTE="claud3, post: 6053395]well it is the only way to go friend... The worse thing to do is go in a different direction[/QUOTE]

You could just play them backwards!
