Assassin’s Creed II Features Sexual Overtones, and Some Rather Salty Language

1 min read


I played through the first Assassin’s Creed, and was left wanting more. Like an actual game. I digress though, as the reason for me mentioning the first one has little to do with it being bereft of fun. I don’t recall there much in the way of carnal delights in the first game; whether through “gameplay” or just mention.

The sequel though, which hits shelves next week, appears to contain not only a seduction minigame (Hey, it worked for God of War, right?) but also some rather sexual dialogue. On uttered phrase in particular is igniting fires under the feet of the moral right.

Spread in amongst garden variety expletives in both English and Italian (you’ll find ‘f**k,’ ‘sh*t,’ ‘c*zzo,’ and ‘m*rda’) is the dialogue of a man frantically recounting an explicit vision; “I’m at the opera . . . the soprano is so beautiful . . . I’m in bed with her, she cries as I f**k her.”

The ESRB reveals more :

“’During one ‘seduction mini-game,’ players are able to press buttons to kiss a woman and remove her dress; with the woman’s back facing the camera, the two characters lower to bed and blow out a candle. Some scenes take place inside brothels, though no nudity or sexual acts are depicted. The dialogue contains the following sexual references: ‘So the whip or the paddle today?’ and ‘Does your wife know about your page-boy fantasies, Captain?’”

Seems like Assassin’s Creed II may provide mature gamers with a little more than they bargained for. It makes sense though; Italy is known for its coffee. I just don’t think we were expecting it to be so hot.

Assassin’s Creed II will be available for consoles on local retail shelves on 20 November 2009. A PC version is expected in the first quarter of next year.

    “Italy is known for it’s coffee. I just don’t think we were expecting it to be so hot.”

      I really was worried that nobody would get the reference.

    I#m a bit l8 for that. I know. But what the fuck, are you telling us? Dunno what you in ZA know Italy for, but here in Europe Italy is known for the women. And if you’d ever taken a look on european history you’d rather know that in that time every “city” but espacially Rome, Paris and Venice where just like big brothels. Plus… killing innocent ppl and stealing from em is OK, but sex and insults ain’t?
    Just go and cry. (Hope you get that!)
