I have to admit, I am very curoius what Turbine plans with this. Will it be moved F2P a la LOTRO and DDO, will it remain bundled with AC1, or will it get its own separate subscription?
I am debating tossing a month of subscription to Turbine and messing about with this a bit.
I almost don't remember my experience in AC2. I played very very briefly.
That being said I am super confused as to why it would not be opened to a F2p model right off the bat. I would 100% download and play this if it was free to download and play.
I am not sure I would call AC2 a sandbox. It is, from my memory, a very open world theme park.
All the same, we dont see open world design anymore, so I imagine it feels pretty sand boxy compared to modern titles.
Nothing personal, but this guy does very bad impressions videos. He kinda just rambles and never really says much. Instead of just rambling while you play I would suggest maybe recording some video then writing down some notes at least and recording over it.
Discuss some bullet points rather than just ramble on.
I don't think that word means what you think it does.
In fact, AC2 was partially a foundation for quest-based mmos rather than kill-camp mmos. I don't know if it's true now, but when it came out, you pretty much had to do these quests given by monoliths in order to get XP. In other words, it had a big influence on WoW itself.
Ripper is not a good reviewer. Did he actually play the game some and then give thought to what he would say to his viewers, like write it down and stuff? Jeez, sounds like he just winged it.
As far as AC history goes, most AC players vomitted on AC2 and never looked back - it was that bad. Turbine is mistaken to think that anyone would pay to play an aweful game from 10 years ago. If you want a superior MMO, give Rift a try. AC2 sandbox? Doubt it, give eve-online sandbox a try.
Thank you for warning us about the bad game AC2, we will pass on it...again.
Sub Model or Not AC2 is already doing better than nearly any MMO released within the last few years. The "free to play" models are often destroyed by imbalance or locking up necessities that make them "force to pay".
AC2 is a FULL scale MMO. There are very few competitors to it. Out of the 1,000's of titles released only WOW, Linage II, Perfect Wolrd and a few others fit into this category.
Rift, Vindictus, C9 and the newer "action based games" are beautiful games, but they lack the content to play for years.
Very few MMO's today have the "content" and "grouping" they should to be considered true MMORPG's.
AC2 is one of very few games large enough to give you the freedom to explore and fully customize your own character.
Explaining AC2 is like explaning "Pulp Fiction". It's a great movie, but you have to see it for yourself to get it.
good to see the old games get a breath of life in them.
though if you hadnt mentioned the name of the game every 5 seconds and it had not been in the title i'd have wondered what game this was
