Been cranking this for a few days, really really good. Vast improvement over the first, which I quite enjoyed... flawed and tedious as it got, the story was compelling, and it was still quite fun.

i got bored with the tedium of the first game.. i think i only made it to the second or third city before going zzzzzzzzz.
Have they improved the 'open world' aspects of the game?

Hey bro, yeh finally got around to playing this after Bioshock and Dead Space.
Its pretty repetitive huh, ha. I just enjoy jumping on and off stuff.

Will probably duke it out over the next few days to finish before my wedding on the weekend (will probably say goodbye to late evening/night videogaming after that)

Gotta say it's up there for GOTY for me too. Well it's a close 4 way between ACII, Infamous, Blazblue and SF4 haha.

I'm inclined to agree too. I'm almost finished it now I think (gotta find two codec pieces I've missed around the place before I can proceed), but yeah.. super compelling. And surprisingly educational

Any idea what the last weapon is? the Staff?

that end game/credits sequence was great. More games need to do that.... like the beach fistfight at the end of The Warriors game.

Just got it, it's the Condottiero War Hammer.

Was hoping it was gonna be the staff eh, gutted you couldn't grab it out of the ground.
