"Amazing game in loads of ways."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was a fan of the first Assassin's Creed game, despite its unfortunate number of annoyances and flaws. This game made me begin to hate AC1, because it simply wasn't the incredible game AC2 was. It improves on AC1 in every way. I also found the change from gritty 12th century holy lands to renaissance Italy to be a great decision, as running across the rooftops of Florence and Venice never gets old, even after hours of playing. Unfortunately, Ubisoft's (the developer) DRM means that the game has to connect to their servers in order to play. I wasn't able to play this game for 24 hours after I bought it because they were performing server maintenance. Despite this, it is still probably my favourite game ever (until Brotherhood comes out for PC). Anyone who liked the Prince of Persia series or Assassin's Creed 1 will absolutely adore this game.

"Amazingly fun."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Despite the DRM which everyone bagged as annoying or useless, this game still shines just like the original. And the DRM doesn't eat your monthly internet usage either, in fact what it uses is unnoticeable.

The game play itself is a lot better than the original, and doesn't feel repetitive or annoying – plus you can actually buy weapons other than swords, and you even get a nifty gun later on. The graphics could be better but I guess it will run on most machines though.

All in all an amazing game that you won't regret buying.

"Amazing game, terrible DRM"
4 stars"

The game is incredible. The graphics are great, plot is very interesting, with many twists and turns and the gameplay is downright fun. The game is very unique and you'll find no other game like this. The only let down is ubisoft's new DRM which forces you to be connected to the internet at all times and chews up a lot of your bandwidth.

Must buy for everyone who have good internet.

Description

Assassin’s Creed® 2 is the follow-up to the title that became the fastest-selling new IP in video game history. The highly anticipated title features a new hero, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a young Italian noble, and a new era, the Renaissance.

Assassin’s Creed 2 retains the core gameplay experience that made the first opus a resounding success and features new experiences that will surprise and challenge players.

Assassin’s Creed 2 is an epic story of family, vengeance and conspiracy set in the pristine, yet brutal, backdrop of a Renaissance Italy. Ezio befriends Leonardo da Vinci, takes on Florence’s most powerful families and ventures throughout the canals of Venice where he learns to become a master assassin.

Features:
  • EZIO, A NEW ASSASSIN FOR A NEW ERA Ezio Auditore da Firenze is a young Italian noble who will learn the ways of the assassins after his family was betrayed and he looks to seek vengeance. He is a lady’s man, a free soul with panache yet has a very human side to his personality. Through him, you become a master assassin.
  • RENAISSANCE ITALY Italy in the 15th century was less a country and more a collection of city-states where families with political and economic strength began to take leadership roles in cities like Florence and Venice. This journey through some of the most beautiful cities in the world takes place in a time in history where culture and art were born alongside some of the most auspicious stories of corruption, greed and murder.
  • A NEW-FOUND FREEDOM You will be able to perform missions when you want and how you want in this open-ended world that brings back free-running and adds elements such as swimming and even flying to the adventure. The variety in gameplay adds another layer for you to truly play through the game any way you choose.
  • DYNAMIC CROWD  Discover a living, breathing world where every character is an opportunity for the player. Blending in with the crowd is easier, working with in-game characters provide ample rewards but can also lead to surprising consequences.
  • BECOME A MASTER ASSASSIN  Perfect your skills to become a master assassin where you brandish new weapons, learn to disarm enemies then use their weapons against them and assassinate enemies using both hidden blades.
