    Assassin's Creed 2 surpasses the original

    This game is a great leap forward for the series and probably the first time I can truly say I've enjoyed a sequel much more than an original. The story truly continues from where the first game left off, answers the questions from the first game up front and leads you into a new storylne very appropriately, while still leaving you wanting to know more about the story of the character you are playing. The controls are much improved from the first game, the combat is much better and more adaptive than the original, and the side challenges and achievements are actually worth something to your character and the storyline (not just miscellaneous fluff like the flags in the first game).

    This is what a video game should be.

    This is my first time into this series, I did not play AC1. I decided to get AC2 since the story sounded interesting and everyone said 2 was way better than 1. The graphics are stunning. The cities are enormous. There are enough side missions to keep you occupied for a very long time. Or if you just want to explore the cities causing mayhem along the way, you can do that too. The storyline missions aren't just a run and gun type mission. They take planning. You can't just bust up into the place to assassinate your target and expect to survive long. This is definitely a must have game and I look forward to Revelations coming out soon.

    I have not purhcased this game yet but, Ih ave played it on my friend's PS3 and it was amazing. I mean the graphics were stunning as well as ezio doing moves such as jumping from building to building and killing guards. It is worth $30.00 and I think this game should be voted game of the year for 2009.

    I just bought this game recently and I can't get away from it! I'm a huge fan of "open world" or "sandbox" style video games and this one, for me, stands close to the top!!! I love the story taking place in the late 1400's, it's a time period not usually depicted in video games and the graphic design and gameplay really give you a great and realistic feel of Italy in that time period. The storyline is excellent, great characters, beautifully written with emotional intensity. Of course combat variety really gives the game a powerful edge. And the abilty to free run and explore makes the game more accessable because you don't have to follow the story everytime you play, you can do side mission or explore the land... up to you!!! Overall, excellent game! 5 stars all the way!!! Can't wait for the next one coming soon!!! Highly recommended!

    Assassin's Creed 2 is a great game, and its better than anything i thought ubisoft could do. There maybe be some problems with the game in the challenge and length. I say the length because i know alot of people just try to follow the main storyline and don't try to do any of the extra events. I say the challenge because once you get every move down you basically just walk up to someone and their dead in less then a second, which i've played and seen this happen when you get surround by a group of gaurds and then like one swift move and almost everyone is taken out? It makes no sense. But overall this game is great! I would recommend this game to everyone who has an 360 or PS3.

    This game is absolutely awesome. A terrific story, a MASSIVE free-roaming land, and great graphics. There's not much more you can ask for in a game. It's one of the few games I've picked up recently that I had to keep playing until I finished it. The puzzle aspects of the game are challenging but not frustrating. My only slight complaint is that the controls can sometimes be annoying (I found myself flying off a building a couple times by accident), but that doesn't deter me at all. Pick this game up!
