Assassin's Creed® 2 is the follow-up to the title that became the fastest-selling new IP in video game history. The highly anticipated title features a new hero, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a young Italian noble, and a new era, the Renaissance.
Assassin's Creed 2 retains the core gameplay experience that made the first opus a resounding success and features new experiences that will surprise and challenge players.
Assassin's Creed 2 is an epic story of family, vengeance and conspiracy set in the pristine, yet brutal, backdrop of a Renaissance Italy. Ezio befriends Leonardo da Vinci, takes on Florence's most powerful families and ventures throughout the canals of Venice where he learns to become a master assassin.
EZIO, A NEW ASSASSIN FOR A NEW ERA: Ezio Auditore da Firenze is a young Italian noble who will learn the ways of the assassins after his family was betrayed and he looks to seek vengeance. He is a lady’s man, a free soul with panache yet has a very human side to his personality. Through him, you become a master assassin.
RENAISSANCE ITALY: Italy in the 15th century was less a country and more a collection of city-states where families with political and economic strength began to take leadership roles in cities like Florence and Venice. This journey through some of the most beautiful cities in the world takes place in a time in history where culture and art were born alongside some of the most chilling stories of corruption, greed and murder.
A NEW-FOUND FREEDOM: You will be able to perform missions when you want and how you want in this open-ended world that brings back free-running and adds elements such as swimming and even flying to the adventure. The variety in gameplay adds another layer for you to truly play through the game any way you choose.
DYNAMIC CROWD: Discover a living, breathing world where every character is an opportunity for the player. Blending in with the crowd is easier, working with in-game characters provide ample rewards but can also lead to surprising consequences.
BECOME A MASTER ASSASSIN: Perfect your skills to become a master assassin where you brandish new weapons, learn to disarm enemies then use their weapons against them, and assassinate enemies using both hidden blades.

This came out 7 years ago but still is one of my favorite AC games. It has one of the best environments and characterizations ever in any AC game. Ezio Auditore is my favorite protagonist in the series and will always be my favorite. If you haven't played this yet, what are you doing??? Play it now! Experience the music, the setting, the gameplay, the story most importantly. It will all blow you away!

Well, after playing many hours to AC I, I had many expectations about this second opus...and I am not deceived, at all. This game is like the first one, but best, in all ways. You are more free (you can swim this time), cities are larger, Venice is amazing, you can meet characters that you are more inclined to know (I am thinking right there of Leonardo Da Vinci) who have really made history. By being the first one of an Ezio trilogy which was going to be very interesting, it is a turning point in our way of playing videogames. I think that I may remember this game as a game which taught me a lot, about Renaissance and Italy. The metastory is going quite further, but not really fast enough.
what a wonderful game!!!!!cyborg1481 | Aug. 15, 2014 | See all cyborg1481's reviews »

This game will win you, no matter who you are or what you do. To have a chance of roaming Venice... To witness first hand the beauty of architecture. And to immerse yourself in this amazingly detailed world.
The plot and characters themselves are very good too. You get to meet young Leonardo da Vinci! This is what I like in Assassin's Creed games - you are entering a "real" world. Of course the story is purely fictional. But embedded in factual events. Creators of AC were brilliant in their use of the best asset there is in creating works of art - our history.
The graphics may not be state of the art, but I commend it for being very detailed. Architecture, those arches and domes will make you purr like a kitten. Music is also very good, it's style and tempo heats up your blood during battles, and provides a chilling atmosphere when you roam the world .
Get this game guys, it comes from the original Assassin's Creed, refines it, and is much much better than the first part.

Some years after the first Assassin's Creed brought an innovative Open World, Assassin's Creed II even further improves upon it and makes it seem even more responsive as ever! It continues the same fun gameplay which made the first game so popular among stealth fans and also makes some pretty nice additions too!
You return as Desmond Miles, as he continues to be used by Abstergo in order to fuel their own desires. However you play a different Assassin this time around, Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, an Italian assassin who seeks redemption after he & his family goes through a gritty and tragic part of their lives. Assassin's Creed II takes place during the Italian Renaissance and in which you play a very vital role in Holding back the Templars from succeeding in their plot to make Mankind their slaves.
Gameplay mechanics are a lot improved in this second outing of the series. You now have two hidden blades on each of your arms to help you in assassinating more than one enemy at a time. You also get multiple additions to your armory of weapons. The Eagle Vision mechanic is also improved as now you can use it while moving and finding your targets & objectives. Sword fights are now also much more authentic and accurate experiences.
This second entry returns to its beautifully crafted worlds that we have seen from the past game in the series. It is built upon an upgraded version of the Anvil Engine which helps even more in extending the graphical capabilities of the game. Character models now seem much sharper, textures seem a lot more crisper and smoother.
The Soundtrack is even better than the last iteration and is a pleasure to listen to.
Assassin's Creed II is pretty much the defining game in the series so far, which has seen huge upgrades and improvements in mostly all departments. It is highly recommended by me that you play it and is totally worth its price considering how cheap it is these days.
