This is something that will really please David Cage as a YouTube user has converted Assassin’s Creed 2 into a movie.
The game was originally released in 2009 and was a critically acclaimed game, and a normal playthrough will yield you at least 15-20 hours. This movie runs at 3 hours long and features each and every story details minus the gameplay parts, well there are some but the on screen button prompts have been removed.
I’d probably watch it if I had three hours to spare but based on what I’ve seen, the guy has done a spectacular job on it.
The video creator, Andy Gilleand, had previously also edited the Uncharted series into movies and had done a fantastic job with that. Here’s how he did it.
“As before, the goal of these projects is to present the story in a way that non gamers can understand. This is done by including any cutscenes and minimal gameplay necessary to understanding what’s going on. I will not cut anything that would lead to plot holes or confusion,” he wrote.
“I try to remove as many game indicators as possible, such as the HUD, and thankfully the AC series allows you to disable the HUD, but unfortunately that doesn’t quite remove everything. There are still text prompts, sync notices, occasional button prompts, and sometimes the game itself bugs out and displays the HUD anyway. Thankfully, the story explains these things as being part of the Animus.”
