So yeah, I was a pretty big fan of the first Assassin’s Creed game. Even though a lot of the missions were repetitive and didn’t quite hit the mark it was going for, the game was still solid and showed a lot of promise. So what about Assassin’s Creed 2? Assassin’s Creed 2 is the game we should have gotten the first time around so much more. The missions have improved, the fights have improved, and the story has improved. They’ve cut out the confusing elements and opted for a more simplistic approach that suits it. The only true complaint I have about this game is that the freerunning feels clumsy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still very good, but it feels like they haven’t changed it at all from what they had in the first game, especially after games such as Mirror’s Edge and InFamous have expanded outdid it with their freerunning elements. However, freerunning problems aside, this is a very solid game, and the environment designs are beautiful, almost perfectly capturing the feel of Rennaissance Italy. You should definitely pick this up if you loved the first game, and at least give it a rent if you weren’t completely sold on the first game.
