graphics were never the problem with AC it was the repetitive mission design. It got boring way too fast.

Assuming they fix the repetitive mission issues from the first one, this will be day one for sure, and I don't do that often.

Strip the bullshottiness away and the graphical quality seems to be the same as AC1, which is fine for me as that probably means I'll be able to run it with no issues on my PC :D

Venezia and Firenze FTW, the reason why it looks so much better than the first one. :p

I agree, but I have my fingers crossed on this one.

Really? You kidding me?

The screens look good, but not THAT good.

I'll definately get this. First one was awesome.
Agreed... maybe I'm blind, but that looks about like what I'd expect AC2 to look like.

Can't wait!! I'm actually playing through the first one on my PC now and I love it! Who said AC1 sucks anyway? I avoided this game because of GAF and come to find out it's awesome! Some of you drama queens really suck! lol

I really hope they keep the free-roaming countryside aspect from the first game. Maybe update it a little.

I loved it, but it was underutilized. Give us more to do than just avoid soldiers, and hunt for flags. How about some side missions?

Yeah, I loved the game on the PC too.

Then again I loved Far Cry 2 also, so I guess I don't mind repetitive gameplay. :lol

Agree. The pictures are stunning but it will all be for nought if the missions are boring and repetitive.

No way some of those are real screenshots.

Like, the 2nd and the 3rd totally look like concept-somethings-whatever.

Still looks cool though.

You have a horrible memory. If you're missing jumps in Assassin's Creed, you should probably stop playing videogames.

Uncharted can pull off these graphics, so I'm sure the real Assassin's Creed 2 looks like this.

Very nice visuals.

Well, yeah. Just looking at the angles and shit its obvious that they aren't real screenshots.

Still representative of what the game will look like though, especially on my PC after I load it up with AA.

I don't mind repetative gameplay when it's so much fun to play. I can literally sneak around assassinate and climb on things forever in Assassins Creed. The game mechanics are just so perfect!

That said I do see a lot of room for improvement for the second game and I'm sure the developers know the grips of the first one, so I think we're in for a treat. :D
