E3 09: OPM UK goes hands-on with Assassin's Creed II

Our friends over at Official PlayStation Magazine UK are spending a fair amount of their time at E3 flying around in hand-gliders and stabbing men in the jugular with concealed blades. Thankfully, they won't be facing serious jail time, though, as they're merely playing murderer for hire, Ezio, in Assassin's Creed 2.

In the video below you can find out exactly why OPM's editor in chief, Tim Clark, feels this sequel set in Venice is the game Altair's original adventure should have been. Also note, when Tim says 'Can't wait to get our hands on it', he means they can't wait to play the finished version.

    OMG!!!!! GREATEST....GAME.....EVEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!! No matter what people said about the first it is still one of my all time favourite games, and this looks to improve on it in every way. Can't wait to see any new Da-Vinci gadgets, and which other historical figures show up. I also heard u get extra weopons by connecting Assassins Creed Blood Lines on the psp to the PS3 version. 6 extra weapons. WOOOOOOOOOO!!!
