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

This marks the sixth of seven games that Jesper Kyd has made music for in which the main protagonist is an assassin. The first four being the Hitman series and the last three being the Assassin's Creed series. See more »

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 »

Quotes

Rodrigo Borgia: So sorry to have claimed your prize, Assassin. Did you honestly think I wouldn't expect you to follow? That I didn't plan for it? We've been at this a lot longer than you.

An amazing sequel to another great title
21 February 2010 | by carnagebladeproductionsSee all my reviews

Assassin's Creed II delivers everything a gamer could possibly want; to kill ruthlessly, or to silently kill and walk away. Many new additions have been added to the game, although players hooked to the first game will have to get the hang of how weapons are selected and how to buy them and such. The new setup is quite different from the first Assassin's Creed, due to now there be actual missions rather than the basic storyline of having to kill some bad people. But Assassin's creed delivers great graphics, more gore, more counter-attacks, and now one of the greatest inventions in gaming history, to use your opponent's weapon against them, and delivering the same great feel. Plenty of unlockables means it's time to unsheathe your sword and get ready, you're in for a real show stopper.
