Assassin`s Creed II
Game Over Online
27 January 2015
Excerpt: It’s Like… …Assassin’s Creed with more of what you liked and less of what you didn’t like. Desmond Miles is delving once again into his ancestral memories in order to save the future by learning the secrets buried in his family’s past.
Conclusion: A huge improvement over the first game, Assassin’s Creed II offers up an enormous, beautiful open world that’s easy to get lost in, an epic storyline and all the fun that comes from creatively killing villains and tearing across 15th-century rooftops at ridiculous speeds.

Excerpt: With 2009 quickly coming to a close, I was all set to crown either Batman: Arkham Asylum or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves my game-of-the-year. But then, like a cloaked killer in the cover of night, Assassin's Creed 2 slipped in and stabbed my two-title race in the jugular.
Excerpt: slipped in and stabbed my two-title race in the jugular. Yup, Ezio now joins the elite ranks of Drake and the Bat, starring in a game that'll no question top many year-end must-play lists. The accolades will be well-earned, though, as
