Assassin's Creed II

Extra Ammo
5 July 2011
  • 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. The details in the architecture are stunning you could tell the environment artist put their heart and souls into bringing the streets and buildings of renaissance Italy to life.

Assassin's Creed II

Gaming Evolution
31 July 2010
  • 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. A story set on revenge as you play as Ezio and learn of his past in order to help Desmond's future and present.

  • Summary: To anyone with mixed feelings on the original, I’ll say this: They fixed Assassin’s Creed. With clinical precision, Ubisoft Montreal has addressed the list of issues that interfered with the first outing. The repetitive missions are gone, the heavy-handed exposition is cut short, and the formulaic structure has given way to a natural narrative flow.

Assassin's Creed 2

Strategy Informer
5 May 2010
  • 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. The development team at Ubisoft Montreal has gone far beyond what we’d normally anticipate from a sequel too, delivering not only an unreservedly brilliant and compelling follow-up, but one of the finest games we’ve ever played.

A Killer Game

GIN
2 January 2010
  • 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. Go in the Animus, climb tall buildings to locate key vantage points, obtain information by any means necessary, get the assassination contract, perform a scripted assassination, escape. Rinse, repeat, do it again.

  • Excerpt: The original Assassin’s Creed has been one of the most striking and divisive games of the generation so far. Some were won over by its unique setting, innovative controls and impeccable free running, whilst others chastised its lack of mission variety and the absence of an opportunity to meaningfully interact with the game world.

Assassin's Creed II

The 8th Circuit
4 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted. Assassin’s Creed II , the sequel to Assassin’s Creed and the newest installment in the series has finally dropped. The game picks up where the last game’s cliffhanger ending abruptly stopped the action. The first Assassin’s Creed disappointed many because it had so much potential, yet was held back by two things: repetitive missions and simplistic combat.
