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.

I've always wanted to jump stab a renaissance guard.Argentum | Nov. 26, 2013 | See all Argentum's reviews »
... and now I can.
This is the best game in the series, I picked it up late after initially skipping straight to 3 but after playing through all (bar black flag) this one is the most polished and has the best story line out of all of them.
The swordplay is spot on, it feels like Rocksteadys batman picked up a sword and really started liking to kill people, the whole thing flows and it has a delicate balance of difficulty and awesomeness that keeps you interested in it. The extra addition of the gun built into your wrist makes you feel like a god of the old age and leaping out of the air to stab an man in the neck awakens a primeval sense of fun in you.
Story is top notch, and a massive improvement over Altairs tale, I actually cared about Ezios journey through it, its not a suprise it got 2 story sequels out of it.
Assassins Creed 1 created its own genre, this sequel owned said genre.

The one thing that the Assassins Creed series does, is improve. The biggest issues with the original game were certainly fixed in this one. A much smoother game, with an even better story than the first. The game steps up in every way. The biggest flaw in this game is that you cant go back and just do certain missions again. This doesnt sound like much, but when there is an achievement only gettable on one quest about 70% of the way through the game, and short of restarting there is no way to have another crack at it, its a bit rough.
One of the Best 3rd Person Action Games Ever.DarthEaglePrime | Nov. 21, 2013 | See all DarthEaglePrime's reviews »
I really enjoyed Playing ACII. For me, it has been the best in the franchise. I loved the original Assassins Creed and when this one came out it felt it was way better than the first. Better graphics, Better gameplay and a much deeper story. At first I didn´t like Ezio, but he kind of grows on you. I just wish they would have continued to grow all aspects of the game through Brotherhood and Revelations But it was more of the same. I consider the other 2 as very pricy DLCs. The only thing that was missing from this was the multiplayer.
The best AC game to date.gforcesa | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all gforcesa's reviews »
I was a big fan of the first assassin's creed game and was hoping to get a sequel and when AC 2 came out and i played it,it was amazing.My favorite history lesson in school was about the renaissance and believe it or not thanks to this game i got a good grade.In this game you will meat the famous Leonardo Da Vinci who will create the gadgets you are going to use in the game.In my opinion this is the best Assassin's Creed game in the series just because the developers nailed the story,drama and action.
Probably the best game in AC series.bauwan | Nov. 2, 2013 | See all bauwan's reviews »
I started playing Assassin's creed from the very first one. Next I had ACII and it was like... wow. Comparing it to the first game, this just took the series onto new level. First of all, story was much more interesting for me. It was also interesting, that we could see Ezio since his birth. New weapons, new features, non linear quest (as in first AC, in each city we had to do the same activities, scouting, following, helping citizens, etc.), better combat, so much more to do, secrets and all that stuff make it bigger, better and more fun. This is how improvement in games should look like. Brotherhood and Revelations continued Ezio's story, ACIII wasn't so fun, as previous games, so still in my opinion, Assassin's Creed II was the best game in the series. We'll see if ACIV will take its place.
