A different game with the same awesomeness

The problem with ACI was its repetitiveness... ACII takes away almost all of it by adding monetary stores, more weapons, clothing customization, and side missions.

The Bad:
The cut scenes are the exact same graphics as the game, only zoomed in, so it's not so hot.
It still gets a little repetitive, but nothing more than any other game.

The Good:
A story line that is both easy to follow, and dramatic/enthralling.
New weapons
New moves
New worlds
Your own "villa" (it's the size of a small city)
The graphics (other than cut scenes) are even better than the first game, a remarkable feat.
Quicker climbing
Can't say more without saying spoilers.

Also, the Desmond story line still exists in this game.

Assassins Creed 2 is a blast for its gameplay, good thought out story, and beautiful graphics. Its about a 9.6, but definantly better than a 9 game. The game is not a fast thrill ride, its a well thought out story.

Even though this is a sequal, those having never played Assassins creed wont be left too far behind. That said, so much happens in the second your not going to want to just wait for the third. Judging from the way 2 ended i can tell you Assassins creed 3 is going to be one of the most anticipated games of ALL TIME.

The missions and assasinations are creative and keep your attention. The game itself still has a fair deal of repetivness much like the first game, but it spreads it out in different forms so the game doesnt end up boring you to death. One great way to deal with the repetivness in this game is to perfect your art of assasinating people. Being able to shank someone and walk away with no one the wiser was gratifying for me. At the same time if you are the rampage killer crazy type, the game isnt to hard on you players either.

Graphics. The landscape is beautiful, buildings, vegitation, everything except for the peoples faces lol. The main character has his hood down the majority of the game so its not that annoying.

The Game is LONG! Just long enough though.
Many games, mostly the highly anticipated ones aLA Halo have extremely short stoy modes. Assassins Creed 2 has a long thought out story, and a great shocker of an ending.

There were also additions like armor, weapons, and a town you get to own and rebuild for a stable income.

For the new game player, dont spend money on armor/weapons until your villa is fully upgraded, money will roll in easy at that point and you can buy as many weapons and armor as you want.

PLAY it people.. like i said, with the improvments they made from 1 to 2, 3 is going to be a great great game. So catch up on 2s story so you dont miss out. Along with giving yourself a great experience.

Everybody knows that the first game in this trilogy had a lot of faults. Everything from repetitive missions to less than exciting combat scenes. Not so with this title. The designers obviously stepped back to the drawing board and fixed everything. This game delivers everything that the first promised. A deep storyline, decent combat, and jaw dropping scenematics. I can promise that if you get this game, you will lose sleep over it.
