After escaping from Abstergo, Desmond Miles is led to an assassin safe house by Lucy Stillman, and accesses the genetic memories of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, his ancestor from 15th Century Renaissance Italy. After witnessing his father and brothers murdered, Ezio becomes an assassin and vows revenge on those who committed the crime. With the help of family and real historical figures, including Leonardo da Vinci, Ezio uncovers a greater conspiracy which would lead him directly to the religious hub of the world and a Spaniard by the name of Rodrigo Borgia, the man who would become Pope Alexander VI.

Did You Know?


Ezio Auditore da Firenze loosely translates to "like an eagle, auditor of/from Firenze". Auditor derives from the family profession in banking; Firenze is the Italian version of Florence, Ezio's birthplace. See more »


In "Last Man Standing", as Ezio walks into the square, his family stands on the gallows with their hands free. When we cut to the cut scene, however, their hands are tied behind their backs. See more »


Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Doesn't seem like anybody showed up, Rodrigo! How many people have died for this? For what's in this box? And look- There's nobody here!
Rodrigo Borgia: You claim not to be a believer. And yet, here you are... Don't you see him? The Prophet is already here... I am the Prophet. Now give me the Apple.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Come and take it from me.

Absouletely Incredible...
26 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game blew my mind. The story line is so intricate, so realistic, and so vastly controversial that this game deserves to be in the video game hall of fame. The AI has been redone to make enemies smarter, now they will actually look for you after you escape. the graphics are once again breathtaking. My mouth is open in awe every time I synchronize on top of a viewpoint. this is one of those game that truly pulls you in to the story and doesn't let you go until the game is complete. throughout the entire game, I felt like I WAS Ezio di Auditore de Firenze. That's how realistic the storyline felt. filled with action, betrayal, humor, fantastic graphics, and even some romance, Assassin's Creed II is not a game to be missed.
