Assassin's creed 2 is nothing like it's original predesasor. You still have the same old Desmond miles storyline going but you have a diffrent ancestor. Your ancestor is Ezio Aditore da Firenze. Now the ancestreal gameplay is about 45 percent diffrent. Instead of investigations you have soryline missions. And also you have a money system. You can get money in a variety of diffrent ways. Earning it in special errands, stealing it, getting it in the villa's income, finding it in treasure boxes hidden everywhere. You can use the money to get weopons, medicine, poison, and armor. you can also use it to repair armor, hire teams, and bribe heralds to reduce noteriety. As you get more wanted in a city the notoriety increases. You can reduce notoriety by bribing heralds, tearing down wanted signs, and killing corrupt officials. You also have a new variety of assassination techniques. Air assassination, my favorite, double assassination, and hang assassination. There are also new cities. Florince, tuscany, Monteragon, Venice, and Rome. Just as an added bonus they also added the feature of swimming.In my opinion this is a very great game.
This game was an all around great game. Everyone was complaining that the animus was confusing but in this game it actually makes sense. I think it's a good twist to the story anyway. There are a lot of new kills and new weapons. The story line is great and the ending is even better. I'm calling it that assassin's creed 3 will definately be modern day. This game takes a good amount of time to beat so i would recommend buying it. Trust me you will like this game if you are into stealth and strategy games.
Oh my god this game was so good and the achievements was the best got them all in 5 days, Great game play and story was way better then the first one, Great new moves and clothes, Swords, upgrades can't wait for part 3
