  • Summary: When I played Bonfire of the Vanities I was already angry for ''being forced'' to buy this probably bad DLC by the surely bad Battle of Forli and its cliffhanger ending. Well, the good news is that this DLC pack is considerably better than the last.

Hyped up game.

  • Summary: I was on the edge about getting this game for a long time. I finally caved and bought it for $20 on PSN. First off let me say that most of the reviews of this game are being made by casual gamers that don't know any better or by people that REALLY liked the first game and are therefore too focused...

Pretty, but average game

  • Summary: This is one of those games that I really wanted to like, based on all of the glowing reviews. It's not a bad game, and actually has some gameplay dynamics that are fun. However, in my opinion, Assassin's Creed 2 (AC2) is ultimately just a decent platformer with a pretty coat of paint.

Still a long way to go...

  • Summary: When the first Assassin's Creed was released, it received gushing reviews. The graphics, the storyline, the excellent game play, etc. People just couldn't rave enough. Then others started pointing out the faults of the game and the ugly truth finally emerged.

Not perfect, but much better than the first

Rachel Ford, Amazon

  • Summary: Better than the first. For starters, Ezio (the ancestor you're following now) is a lot more likeable than Altiar. Secondly, the "now" story advances a bit more than last time (the last game's ending was down right awful - after enduring the entire game, that was positively cruel! :P).

  • Summary: I just spent 20-something hours playing through Assassin's Creed 2 and it only just now struck me that I was bored most of the time. I've never experienced anything quite like it.

Fun + better than AC1, but no mission replay kills long term value - Rent it

  • Summary: First, let me say that this is a big improvement over the first Assassin's Creed. Visually great, the first game was so repetitive that it got old quick. They fixed a lot of that this time around, and it's: A) A better story B) A more engaging play-through (i.e.

Somewhat better, somewhat worse than the original

G. Kincade "Zip", Amazon
28 November 2009
  • Summary: While the tedious 'do this 30 times over' style missions are gone, and the regular missions flow a bit better, the game around the central plot is lacking. Instead of many 'sit here and listen' missions, you race, beat up cheating husbands, and complete assassination contracts.

This is shouldn't how games should be

Jordan Parker, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I'm sure everyone is to each their own but this is just my opinion. The game along with other genres similar to this basically plays like a feeble attempt of enmeshing a movie with a video game. The graphics are good but not good enough to hold this cinematic style off well.
