8 September 2012
Excerpt: Ezio Auditore Da Firenze never had a perfect life, but by 15th-century Italy standards, he did quite well. His father was on good terms with bankers and politicians, his brothers and sister were happy within their roles in society, and Ezio had the admiration of a variety of beautiful women around...
Excerpt: ]Assassins Creed 2 took everything that made Assassins Creed fun and entertaining, and improved it ten fold, and all the repetition issues from the first game are non existent. Assassins Creed 2 is a visual masterpiece.
Conclusion: Assassins Creed II is a definite upgrade to its predecessor. Everything has been improved upon in this game. The visuals accompanied by the subtle sound design that doesn’t overpower the moments and the game are a nice added touch.
Conclusion: Assassin’s Creed II is something altogether unique in its uninhibited size and wealth of ambition, few games managing to measure up in terms of depth and detail.

Excerpt: Assassin’s Creed is boring! Assassin’s Creed is tedious! ASSASSIN’S CREED IS DISAPPOINTING! Think this is my opinion of the first game? Maybe not as strict as all that, but yes, it was a letdown. The game followed the same structure over and over again.

For those that have not played the original, Desmond comes from a long line of assassins that have battled Templar knights from the days of the crusades.
Excerpt: Assassin's Creed was one of the first games of this generation that really felt "next-gen." It presented an opportunity to interact with the world in ways that simply wasn't possible without additional power, which is, for the most part, the very essence of that somewhat overused phrase.
Conclusion: Let it never be said that Ubisoft Montreal doesn't listen to their critics. Assassin's Creed II isn't just a marked improvement over the previous game, it's an absolute success as its own game -- the stuff every sequel should be and more.
