I played AC1 for about 45 minutes and gave up. Just too many little things annoyed me and I found the story uninspired. AC2 is different and I have enjoyed playing it. It isnt a fast paced game really and you end up running around alot just going from place to place. You can jump around and climb but its usually easier to just run down to roads.
But the story is pretty cool and all the little side missions (particularly puzzle ones) and especially the little historical profiles of buildings and people I thought were awesome and really brought the whole thing to life.
Fighting mechanics are pretty good but mostly button mashing. It almost impossible to be killed in a fight.
Good, solid game. Perfect rent, but probably dont need to buy.

it is so good youll want to simply walk down the alleys of venece or the markets just to take a closer look at the gorgeous atmosphere and sense of place given.
graphics-10, it just does not get better, some minor texture popping but not to get worried. you can even see the cracks on the wall and people expressions, markets and towns feel alive. people will stare at you if something unusual is done.
sound-9.7, from people taking in the market to great fights and leaps, youll get inmersed.
replay-tons of missions,sidemissions and things to find,tombs and plainly getting inmersed in towns, about 40 hours.
the same gameplay with tons of great innovations such as more fluid climbing, a gun, 2 kinves, poison, buying weapons and armor, different skins and even modyfing your own small city.
it is one package that is both worth your while so get it
