AC2 is a wonderful game. The controls are great--vertical exploration and stealth were done well here--the environments incredibly detailed and fairly accurate to their real-world counterparts, the characters are lively and you care about them, and the story (Ezio) is fun and interesting.
That being said, I hate Desmond. I hate him with a fiery passion. For me, the Desmond sections ruin every AC game.

I didn't get into the Assassin's Creed games until very recently, and boy was I amazed by what I'd been missing out on for all these years. Part of why I stayed away at first was because I'm an avid PC gamer, and I was skeptical of how a free-running movement system could work on a keyboard and mouse. However, once I finally decided to just try it, I was pleasantly surprised to find the controls were very fluid and responsive. Everything from movement to stealth to combat is smooth as silk.
Additionally, considering the game's (relative) age, the graphics are still fantastic. Ezio's story in the past is very interesting, although now I fully understand why so few people care about Desmond and the present-day timeline. Ezio simply overshadows everything else, and luckily, there are two more games with him at the helm for your perusal.
Overall, a great open-world experience with great graphics, smooth controls, and solid gameplay. The only thing you'll be left wanting when you finish is more.
Best AC Ever!Cgtitan5 | April 15, 2014 | See all Cgtitan5's reviews »
Assassin's Creed 2 is the pinnacle of the AC series.
AC 2 highly expands on what the original offered. Assassin's Creed 2 brings things like upgradable shops, weapons, and armor. Another feature that was added was tombs, which are like mini parkour puzzles and are extremely fun and rewarding.The graphics are excellent and breathtaking just like all the other AC games. The story is the best in the series and the characters are really enjoyable.
I highly recommend picking this game up.
