I have not played the first Assassin's Creed, so I will not make any comparisons to it. The game is filled with possibility of exploration and fun. The game has multiple areas, and they are all (to some extent) equally fun to explore. The storyline is more original than most games, and,quoting a friend, It starts well from where the first one leaves off. I wont go into the storyline much, since I encourage discovering it by yourself, but I will say that surprises lurk around every turn (often literally). In my own personal opinion, The ways that the NPC's reacted to almost every move that was made while playing was what impressed me most.Even after you finish the main storyline, there is some things left to do, collecting armor, feathers, upgrading an area, finding secrets, among other things. however, doing these things gets repetitive easily, so after finishing the game, you will still be thirsting for more.All in all, I had to round it up to a 10 out of 10.definitely worth playing.
A much more rich experience than the first Assassin's Creed. This brings a much more authentic feeling and has a story that is more gripping as well. You will enjoy running across roof tops and blending in amongst the crowds in search of your prey.
