Hey, not everything made in Canada/by Canadians is bad!

Yeah, PoP:Sands of Time was developed by Ubisoft Montreal.

I'm glad it's better than the original, even though I haven't gotten into the series. Maybe I'll check out the first.

Just wondering something about what Yahtzee said about Canadian games: Prince of Persia was made by Ubisoft Montreal, which is CANADIAN YOU CHEAP BRITISH!

Here's a list of canadian games:
Baldurs Gate
Neverwinter Night
Prince Of persia series
Splinter's Cell series
Mass Effect
Dragon Age

well some of the BEST GAME EVER PRODUCED!

please give more respect to the Canadian Yahtzee

about that... Assassin's Creed did have fast travel. Maybe it was just the PC version though?

Well, I'm still waiting for the one set in the future so I guess I can pass this one by as well.

Especially since I can't imagine why your character wouldn't have learned anything about assassination from Assassin's Creed 1, which kind of breaks the main plot point for me.

The Great JT:
Nothing does quite top the hugging stab kill.

No, we now have the "You are attempting to hold me hostage in front of your boss while trying to hold both my arms, problem is you have just pointed my wrist-stabbing-knife-of-no-finger-loss in both of your faces. I will now give you the chance to let go...no...shink....thud, thud."

That is what we have better then the hug stab.

Anyways on to the review, yes their is the money aspect that was compltely unnecessary but hey thats the optional part of the game, the only thing you REALLY need to collect are the codex pages and litteraly you get those in between missions pretty much by killing a few guards and taking them. honestly have to wonder how Ezio's father never found them.

While I'll admit the combat in game is frustratingly boring in its pre-school easyness, it does have its moments of actual fun gameplay because most of the time I never actually fought anyone, all I really did unless I had no choice was lead them around and slowly pick them off one by one with assassinations. Doing that makes it fun. Well.... stealing the axe weilding soldiers weapon and then raming it back into his skull is highly satisfying, annoying fucks.

final boss battle, You get to beat the shit out of the pope in fisty cuffs, what more needs to be said after that beyond the fact that it was Ubisofts way of getting around their whole 3 minute death sequence monologue without making us sit around and watch as the guy bleeds to death.

ending is still fucked up though, no doubt about that.

The only thing I have to say is pretty much the same thing everyone else is asking. What the fuck is up with Yahtzee's voice? Is everyone catching all of a sudden now?

I have never taken the time to comment on these videos. I have seen them all, and generally enjoy the satire and good "clean" fun at the game creator's expense. This video's reference to Jurassic Park bit made me laugh me hard, just wanted to say thanks.

Boooo watermark... now I can't take screenshots without having some weird unreadable ghost thing in the background.

"A fish woman" = best line imo

Whats up with your voice, change it back!

AC 2 reminds me of Fable 2, ie what the first one should have been but still with some of the same problems.

i also enjoy gnochi

I think he's talking slower...
WE LIKE NOT UNDERSTANDING YOU!

This is the first ZP i've liked in a long time, it feels like a return to the earlier ZP when it sounded a little more professional

New mic i presume, Great job

great as always. I rather like the new mic no more screaming nose talking about bad games.

Pandurai:
about that... Assassin's Creed did have fast travel. Maybe it was just the PC version though?

nah it was in the console version too, but it still required a horse to get to the the end of the area in order to choose which city you fast traveled to.

Freedom153:
Boooo watermark... now I can't take screenshots without having some weird unreadable ghost thing in the background.

Exactly what I said.

I 'spose everyone else noticed his voice? Hrrrm. Anyway, I enjoyed this episode, being a pc user I'll have to wait to play it though...eh.

WTF! Did a bunch of new escapists just sign in to comment on his voice? I have to say I liked the original more too but it's not really a big deal.

Interesting review, I was planning to get this game on computer but I am not sure I want to now after you said it was too easy. I'll have to look at some other reviews now to make sure.

That was the funnyest video in a long time, I enjoyed it even if your voice is tonned down a bit......what happend did ya balls drop... nah JK but still I liked AC2 and I hope they will make AC3 better (fix the problems)

EDIT: Probly a new mic anyway......we have to get used to it I guess

jackwooly:
I don't like this new sounding voice

Yeah, what's with the new voice?

I didn't like it either. I stopped after 90 seconds because he just sounded boring and monotone.

looks like someone got himself a new mic. I want wowed by this one, but i cant wait intull borderlands.

Alias42:
Blimey, Yahtzee has jumped the shark. I used to watch all of his movie two or three times and laugh throughout, but this one wasn't even chuckle-worthy. I think Wolfenstein was the last proper "funny" review, it was downhill from there.

The Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story review was hilarious! I don't see how you didn't think that one was "proper funny".

did he get a new mic or something because his voice sounds different

Starke:

Heraklitus:
I think the sound quality is better on the voice which is probably why it sounds different.

Yeah, but not that different. I kept expecting some gag to reveal it was actually someone else.

Actually, I think it might be someone else. Not like it'd be the first time Yahtzee had someone else review a game for him. Figure he might be taking a week off? X3

wow when he said that in heaven the shooters are croatian and the game pictured was serious sam i was so astonished i didnt even pay any attention to the rest of the video XD... im so proud now for being croatian

Balkan_Fury:

Didn't you know that one was Croatian? The developers were called "Croteam" and were not Cro-Magons.

OK we get it the first assassin's creed should of been this game...and stop complaining about a game having too much stuff...yes it is easy we all fegured that but imagine something with me...AC 2 hard...don't you think that would be kinda of f***** up ? I mean there are a few missions harder than the others but the sequel is meant for people who are fans of the series...there maybe some minor flaws but when I played it I didn't notice a think and I am still going to say it's the best game for me

what the fuck happened to your voice!?

edit yeah dude has gone and bought himself a condenser mic. more proof that technology cannot save us all

jackwooly:
I don't like this new sounding voice

hes probably sick

Well its nice to see that some sequel games can compensate for their flaws from the first game ..
Having said that it seems that other flaws still seem to appear as a result of that compensation ... Possibly over compensating lol

Hmm, i like the old sound better but i don't care as long as i get the rewiew.

ALKATRAZACAZ:

Lol as do most of us

Megaman0:
What was up with his voice? Nice review though and I'm 3 for 3 in the predict which game will be on ZP next...

Achilles007:

jackwooly:
I don't like this new sounding voice

Yeah, what's with the new voice?

Yeah, there was no spontaneity or enthusiasm, makes me not want to bother even playing the game and it sounds like HE can't be bothered to do the review.

Did he do this review while fighting a cold?

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed a change in his voice. xD
