    Jakob, wouldn't bother. It's worse than the first one.

    I actually think it's much better than the first one.

    How can you compare? I wish the game was open-world, like COP and the console versions. That would make the game MUCH better, but it's pretty good already for a DS title.

    The kind of game best left on home consoles where it belongs. My fear is that if the next Nintendo handheld is as over-powered as the PSP then we'll pretty much exclusively see this kind of downscaling of the home console experience and handheld gaming will meet a sticky end.

    Quite honestly I enjoyed this game, it wasn't too long and story was weird, but it really made up for it's flaws with the fun game play.
    It did improve on the previous one as well.
    Now there is no way to compare it to the other versions like the PS3 version, since the PS3 version pretty much stumps this game to death and throws it into a lake.
    But as for a portable version, it's fun for what it is.

    Yes, it's better than the 1st one, but I like the PSP version better, the gameplay like the console version. The problem is we are controlling Altair, instead of Ezio.

    I didn't play the first one, but I thought this game was pretty bad.

    It seems good at first, but as you get further into the game almost all of the difficulty comes from only being able to see a few feet to either side of your character. You can move the screen to look around a bit, but you still can't see far enough to tell if you can jump somewhere or if there is an enemy where you will land. Add to that the fact that a third of the game is stealth missions where you lose by just being seen by enemies, and you have a crappy game.

    I prefer sidescrollers to most 3D games. The problem isn't that this is a sidescroller, it's that it's a bad one.

    Actually loved this quite a bit.
    It was a fun sidescroller.
    The plot was bad and was very short though!!
    The DS version is better than the itouch/iphone version since this has a radar on the bottom screen which makes stealth missions easy.
    You cant compare it to the console versions though!
    This was a fun little sidescroller and kept me entertained.

    Actually if most of the current DS games are so shitty is not because of hardware limitations. The two first Elder Scrolls could easily fit in a DS and run smoothly. It's just a matter of marketing and development time.

    Don't get the bashing of this game.

    I haven't finished it, but what I've played I liked. Smooth gameplay, a bit trial and error and some nice run-and-jumping. It's no classic sidescroller à la Mario bros., but it's engaging and fresh.
