I played the first Assassin's Creed because I heard so many good things about it. Less than halfway through, however, I was irritated and just wanted it to be over. In this installment, the game has vastly improved. It is comparable to Fable and Red Dead Redemption in the aspects of game play and story. There are so many things to do in this game, I never got bored. In fact I couldn't pull myself away from this game. The story just gets better and better and the open world of is the most interactive I've seen. The AI in the NPC's around town are fun to listen to and interact with. It is very easy to get immersed, making you feel more like you are living in 15th century Italy. Amazing game all around. If the rest of the series is anything like this one, I will be happy.
Great story, Great Twist. Way better then AC1..Game play is quite fun...and if your a game score kinda person this game will net you at least 850 gamer points without even trying. 10/10 I loved it...from the armor/weapon system to owning your own village and upgrading it. Can't go wrong.
