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 »

Quotes

Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Buona sera, Vieri! We were just talking about you. I'm surprised to see you here. I thought the Pazzi hired others to do their dirty work.
Vieri de' Pazzi: It's your family that cries for guards when there's trouble, codardo
[Italian word for 'coward']
Vieri de' Pazzi: ! Afraid to handle things your self?
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Your sister seemed quite satisfied with the 'handling' I gave her earlier.

surpasses the first game in so many ways
10 December 2009 | by krasnayaSee 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.
