Storyline

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.

Goofs

In the first Assassin's Creed Lucy is supposedly missing her ring finger. In Assassin's Creed 2 Lucy has all ten fingers. However, it is unlikely Lucy actually has a missing finger as the practice was eventually phased out of the Assassin rituals. More likely, Lucy simply bent her finger to symbolize to Desmond that she is on his side. See more »

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.
