Assassin's Creed 2 Talk

Joystiq confirms plans for an Assassin's Creed sequel, relating comments about the project during Ubisoft's first-half fiscal 2008-09 conference call. A sequel to the successful stealth/action game was probably a given, but the confirmation indicates they are shooting for a release during Ubisoft's fiscal 2010, which would make for a holiday 2009 release using those old-fashioned non-fiscal calendars the rest of us are saddled with. GiantBomb has their own light to shed on this news (thanks Destructoid), as during the taping of an episode of Gametrailers' Bonus Round they picked up word from tapped-in industry analyst Michael Pachter that the middle ages setting of the first Assassin's Creed will shift several hundred years forward into the 18th century, perhaps to be set during the French Revolution. This news of a time shift is not confirmed, and other details like target platforms are not available at this time.

It's not that difficult a concept to grasp. Some people like playing games, not watching them. Interactivity is a key part of gameplay. In AC, platforming requires the absolute minimum of interactivity. When compared to the likes of Prince of Persia or Tomb Raider, AC's platforming is simply boring because it doesn't require any skill or thought. It isn't just about pressing more buttons, it's about having to time your jumps and rolls and chain together different moves to maintain momentum and traverse the environment in the most efficient way possible. It's about actually playing the game.

If you don't like platformers, you'll probably be more forgiving of AC. For people who do like platformers, AC was just weak.
