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

While at the hideout, Desmond seems to insinuate that he's never had any experience as an assassin. However, in Assassin's Creed, Desmond retorts Dr. Vidic's statement that "he's an assassin", saying that he "doesn't do that, not anymore." Desmond also lived amongst assassins during his early years, it's only safe to assume that Desmond has some experience as an assassin, unless, as the story states, he ran away from the commune too soon to learn anything valuable.

Quotes

Rodrigo Borgia: This is a losing battle for you, hombrecito. You will die by my hand, just like your father. This war has been going on far longer than either of us have played a role.

All I can say about this game is: WOW
18 January 2010 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

I've been saying to everybody, if you didn't play Assassin's Creed (AC) 1 yet, play it before you play Assassin's Creed 2. Although, there is not much link between the two parts, AC2 is much more advanced than AC1. When I first played AC1, I loved it, but I had few comments (which everyone did), but now in AC2, all these comments were taken care of, making this game the best game in 2009.

They have taken care of many comments, which many players had including me. They have dealt with the repetition in AC1, there is limited repetition, where the story is much smoother and different. They have dealt with the fact that a great assassin jumping from building to building could not swim, now the assassin can swim wherever he desires. The graphics have been enhanced. There are more weapons to use and not limited to the sword, assassination blade and throwing knives.

I would say that Ubisoft should be very proud for being able to create such a great game. We will definitely be waiting for Assassin's Creed 3.
