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.

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.
