In a vast open world environment, the game invites players to incarnate Ezio, a privileged young noble in Renaissance Italy who's been betrayed by the rival ruling families of Italy. Ezio's subsequent quest for vengeance plunges players into an epic story that offers more variety in missions, surprising and engaging new gameplay elements, diverse weapons and a profound character progression that appeal to fans of the original Assassin's Creed as well as entice players new to the brand.

    The sequel has arguably changed for the better in just about every conceivable way...Assassin's Creed II truly offers an experience like no other, one that mixes history and brutality to sheer perfection. And it's absolutely massive. [Holiday 2009, p.38]
  2. Assassin’s Creed II is a worthy successor of one the most intriguing new franchises we have seen in a long time.
  3. Not only an unreservedly brilliant and compelling follow-up, but one of the finest games we’ve ever played. Boasting a suitably grand soundtrack, majestic aesthetics and masterful level design, Assassin’s Creed II is everything we could have ever wished for and so much more. Forget Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed II is without a doubt this year’s biggest and best.
  4. Assassin's Creed was easily one of my favorite games of the last decade, and I love the sequel even more. It has managed to improve on almost every aspect of the game, despite missing a couple of obvious and unfortunate mistakes. This side trip to Italy is a truly fantastic vacation and worth every dollar, euro, or gold Florin.
  5. Perhaps the ultimate testimony is the fact that it left us longing for another sequel, something the original certainly never achieved.
  6. Assassin's Creed II is more than a great sequel because it does things the first game couldn't even hope to accomplish. There are tons of surprises in store, so if you enjoyed the original – or even if you only kind of liked it – this is one of those sequels that absolutely must be played.
  7. To say the least, Assassin’s Creed II is a disappointment – not because it’s bad, but because we were promised so much more. Everything Ubisoft claimed they were changing has stayed the same, and what little new touches they’ve included fail to impact in the long run.

    Sin duda uno de los mejores Assasins Creed en mi opinión, un gran inicio de la Trilogía de Ezio Auditore.

    - El Protagonista, de lo mejorcito, un protagonista que derrocha carisma, con el que compartes buenos y malos momentos, que ves crecer desde las calles de Florencia haciendo trastadas viajando por toda Italia en momentos épicos, tristes, alegres, románticos, sin lugar a dudas uno de los mejores protagonistas de los últimos tiempos.

    - La jugabilidad es buenísima, mejorando bastante la jugabilidad del Assasins Creed 1, mejora y aumenta los movimientos de Parkour y de escalada, también mejora la movilidad y movimientos a caballo y a nado, aumenta las posibilidades de esconderse, escapar y de asesinar.

    - El Combate es mas fluido aunque sigue siendo un sistema de combate facilillo.

    - La Banda sonora es brutal, ayuda mucho a tener una gran inmersión y te sabe cambiar acorde al momento para tenernos siempre metidos en la escena.

    - Gráficamente mejora mucho respecto al primero.

    - La historia no tiene desperdicio y resulta muy interesante.

    - Las ciudades son espectaculares, mucho mas que en el primer Assasins, se sienten llenas de vida, plagadas de monumentos y edificios históricos que te dan la impresión de estar dando un paseo por la Italia del renacimiento,

    Para mi uno de los mejores juegos de su generación y un juego que sin lugar a dudas esta en mi TOP personal de videojuegos, atrapante, divertido y emocionante, lo recomiendo a todo el mundo y personalmente para mi es un juego de 10.

    This game is probably the most improved sequel outside of Just cause 2 ever, almost everything the original game failed at this game succeedsThis game is probably the most improved sequel outside of Just cause 2 ever, almost everything the original game failed at this game succeeds massively with. The combat is far better and the missions are varied. The story is so much better as instead of playing as a faceless assassin like in the first game, you're a charming Italian guy who injects a much needed sense of humor into the game. The environments are more varied and much nicer than the original and the fantastic parkour remains fun. The soundtrack is also very well done and even memorable at times. The game is also very lengthy taking hours upon hours to do everything. Only problem is the best strategy in combat is still to keep countering and blocking constantly and two of the 14 sequences are DLC which is a bit unfair. Other than that though It's a fantastic sequel and great game. Expand
