When i heard a sequel to assassins creed 2 was coming out so soon i was wicked excited, then i became skeptical. an rpg game like that should usually take more than a year to produce but none the less i was happy it was coming out.
now if you havent played the second one you probably will love it. theres just not enough new.... anything... it might as well have been dlc. in fairness i have not finished it so who knows it may turn on me. but it feels like the same game of last november.

It is a very good game. I love the story lines of all the Assassin's Creed games and this one does not let you down. I love that they put multiplayer into the game, gives you something else to do after you have beat the game and got all the collectibles. I rated it an 8 because they did not make it possible to do split screen at all. If they had made it splitscreen it would be the best game of all time.

The game wasn't as impressive as so many noted... When I see a continuing title, I expect to see better graphics... A more indepth story, but that same great fun... Well in this one the new aspect is multiplayer, which is OK... But it is still great fun if you like this traverse style of run and climbing game genres. Assassins' Creed is a 3rd person climb around game like Prince of Persia... But with a more free-roam feeling with the title[Basically a open world you run around in].
Placed in Rome and continuing right where you left off in Assassins' Creed II... You continue assuming the role as Ezio & Desmond.
Ezio Auditore spared a life and finds he might have made a mistake. In the mean time -- Desmond and his rouge team are seeking safe haven from the, present time, Templars... Both have odds against them as they find their selves seeking retribution against their adversary. Ezio realises he made a mistake and must seek out the Spaniard, whom he spared. Desmond is still seeking the Templar's main goal... To defeat the present time, menace...
The story is on the same line as the previous title and nothing to new about it. There is upgrades you find for Ezio later on but you start out fully equipped. You play as Desmond more often then usual, but mostly in areas Ezio has explored in, but in present time.
The noticeable change is the ability to ride into town/court on your horse. Ezio's mother now is very prominent of him attacking or being a War seeking leader... Lucy, of Desmond's crew, now performs acrobats... A lot of things have changed in the game some irregular or off--completely off--from previous title.
The game multiplayer is OK. You select a character along with 7 other players... You run around a CLOSED area to kill them. Basically a constant cat and mouse game. The AI all look alike in the multiplayer--appearing as other players in game--increasing difficulty or making more annoying.
