I also think AC2 is better than AC3, just not for the same reason. AC3 just took way too long to get started and Connor just didn't feel as strong of a character as Ezio.
What are your thoughts on this? I played through the first Assassins Creed, and absolutely loved it. I bought number 2, played about 2 hours of it and never touched it again...until now. Unfortunately during that time, I got side tracked with other games and Assassins Creed 2 got put on the back burner. Nearly 4 years later, I am now currently playing through the rest of Assassins Creed 2 (this was influenced by me completing Assassins Creed 3) and I have got to say it feels a lot better than 3. Don't get me wrong. I love the plot, and the setting for number three, and honestly I was more excited about three than I was about two...but the combat and climbing just doesn't feel as tight as Assassins Creed 2. Am I alone in this, or does anyone else feel the same?
