I am a DIE HARD Assassin's creed fan, and I was waiting eargerly to get my copy of AC2.


Sure I've talked about it alot here on the forums, but and I've seen it mentioned here or there, but really. How any one else really laugh at the fact that Claudia sits at a desk for 30 years and never ages, or that Maria just sits at the side of her bed for 30 years?

I mean, I still love the game and all, but You'd think Ubisoft could have come up with something a little more creative than just letting them sit for the whole game?

We never saw his hair because he wore a hood, so we don't know if he got older or not...he did get fatter however.

Is it me or did "The fox" obviously appear to be an assassin when we first meet him. Hood, bird like costume, free-runner.

Haha, I'm sure the extra weight was also why Ezio had such a hard time kicking his ***

Volpe certainly seems like an assassin with his ability to COMPELETELY DISSAPPEAR! Seriously, the story completely forgets about him after that one mission. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

It's not like he was even a necesary character anyway. The developers could have had Ezio go to Paula to learn about the Templars meeting. That way she wouldn't have completely dissapeared either. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

One thing's slighty unlogical too. Though within several hours you play 30 years of someone's life, including aging process, playing free-roaming for 30 years won't even make the guy grom older a single minute!

I'm sure I read that armor would make Ezio slower. If so, it was a complete lie.

Have you noticed that even the ones at ground level are attached by arrows? Or how the price on them doesn't change from the bigging of the game to the end? Even after you assassinate TWO Doges?

No one ages except Ezio. Weird...

Another O_o moment in game for me was when you meet Leonardo on the way to Venice. How did Ezio manage to lift that carriage? That has to be like, what, the whole of Leo's workshop in there.

This always made me laugh! I don't see what difference tearing them down is going to make if nobody can see them in the first place. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Another thing that amused me was that Ezio can swim, but any guard that falls into the water is dead instantly. Funny how that happens...

The thing that stil weirds me out the most is that if you check the character database entries for Francesco and Vieri de' Pazzi, you'll see that apparently Francesco fathered Vieri at ten years old. O__o

Indeed, aparently Ezio was the only one to age in this game, everyone else (Paola, Mario, Teodora, Volpe) even Rodrigo Borgia remained the same, Borgia only got fatter. Very lame.

That's the point, the devs thought the same thing for sure. Very few people would recognize that, so they didn't waste their time to make this trivial part of the game more believable.

A perfectionist looks down on such small logical mistakes, the average casual gamer says: "Who cares, i just want to murder people and earn achievments YAY!"

yes i too laughed at this, i mean honestly, the whole story of this game would have fit perfectly in the 10 year range. 30 years and no one ages? not to mention if i was ezio i wouldnt even care that my father and brothers died, i would be mad and want vengeance for the first couple of years, but 30? come on, no one could hold a grudge for 30 years.

I just noticed something while watching the E3 cinematic trailer again.

It was set in 1486 and it shows Ezio using the hidden gun. But in game, he doesn't get it until 1487.

My friend would get frustrated when he would walk to the feather chest and Ezio's mom is still praying there. You know what else, what happened to the other Assassins. You find out they're all assassins, from Poula to "The Fox" and after those certain two levels, they're gone. Even Leonardo. I wish hidden blades could break so I have a reason to go to Leo.

It's how everybody is in the game excluding Ezio, Claudia, and Maria. Even Mario disappears for a while. Machiavelli doesn't even show up until near the end.

No, i remember that one! Soebody brought that up, one of the other users, but nobody ever confirmed it. Plus, you know allot of people wwoud have begun tocomplain about it.

What I was really mad about was the fact that the developers said that Niccolo Machiavelli would teach me tactics...when he didn't. Hell, he was only there to say "DON'T FORGET ABOUT ME!" I mean, the only characters that were there long enough for me to get use to had to be Antonio, Rosa Leonardo and Rogrigio since he was the bad guy.

Veronica Mars(Kristen Bell) voices Lucy.

Nathan Drake(Nolan North) is Desmond.

The Damascus Rafik is Leonardo.

Cam Clarke is Subject 16.

The list goes on.

If you go into the credits under the options menu, you can fast-forward them and then pause at the Cast.

I saw quite a few well-known names in there.

Uncle Mario... I KNOW I've heard his voice somewhere before, or at least know who his actor is.
