Summary: I hated Assassins Creed 1. I mean absolutely despised it. The controls were terrible, the story was weak, the main character was a jerk that you couldn't connect with. It was so bad that I was tempted to not even play part 2. I am so glad that I did. First off, if you've never played part 1, don't.
Summary: Great game. Gets repetitive though.The gameplay was a giant step up form the first Assassins Creed though. More to do, and it's harder to do it. Like I said earlier though, it kind of got repetitive in my opinion. Seller was great though and the game is in almost brand new condition.

Summary: (Warning, spoilers below) Assassin's Creed 2 is beautiful and extremely well crafted, but it also falls short of its true potential by failing to examine some difficult moral questions sufficiently well.
Summary: I played through and beat Assassin's Creed, the first game in this franchise. I didn't care for it, so I was hesitant as to what to expect from a sequel, but I gave it a try. This sequel feels like a sequel.
Conclusion: It seems like Ubisoft listened to the fans this time. They got their shit straight and made an ass kicking game. Assassins Creed 2 seems like the grown up version of the prior prototype, the one that has learned from it's mistakes.
Pros: Wow it really seems like Ubisoft decided to chuck out the Jade Raymond marketing gimmick and focused on getting a lot out of this potentially awesome franchise. Assassins Creed 2 is a continuation of the original where you play another ancestor memory of Desmond Miles which features a character E...
Cons: For some the game may drag a little. Yes the length is a little too long and I know people who have been put off by this often giving up after the flying machine part. And if you're doing side missions side by side then it's going to be a very long play.
Summary: This game has a mix of historical events, Italian culture, conspiracies, action, blood, guts and gore. If you like games where your in control and there is always a mission to complete, then you will never get bored of this game. The special effects are great and the story line is well constructed.
