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.

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Leonardo Da Vinci would have never been called "Mr. Da Vinci"; that would have been the equivalent of someone calling a person "Mr. From New York". He would have been properly addressed as "Leonardo." However, in the first Assassin's Creed Lucy explains to Desmond that the Animus translates the spoken language in the past to current day terms and grammar so that he would better understand the scenes. (In Italian, "da" means "from", as in "from" Vinci; e.g., Leonardo da Vinci. "De" means "of" as in Lorenzo de Medici (of the family of the Medici). "Di" means "of" as in tintura di iodio.)

Quotes

Rodrigo Borgia: You can't. You can't! This is my destiny. MINE! I am the prophet!
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: You never were.
Rodrigo Borgia: Get it over with then.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: No. Killing you won't bring my family back. I'm done. Nulla è reale, tutto è lecito. Requiescat in pace.
[Nothing is true, everything is permitted. Rest in peace]

surpasses the first game in so many ways
10 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

Let me start off by saying that the developers have truly outdone themselves with this one. All the expectations I had for this sequel to a game that was already well-polished; this title completely surpassed them.

The plot is so much more rich and intricately interwoven with brilliant and even hilarious dialogue, and multi-layered conspiracies. Excellent character development lets you emphasize with the main character (this holds true for Ezio as well as Desmond).

The visuals seem to be more detailed than before, and the sounds are as good as ever.

The inclusion of a monetary system was a great idea, adding much more tactics to the game.

The gameplay mechanic has improved vastly with smarter and tougher enemies, more moves and tactics for your character, and so on.

The game was always challenging, but never frustrating, which is very awesome.

If you were even remotely impressed by the preceding title, you should at least check the sequel out.
