Got bored with the general types of games, I got interested inthe Assassin’s Creed series because of the many good reviews around the different game sites. Skipping the first game, I jumped right in to Assassin’s Creed 2.

What an amazing game..! I had expected a large mis-connect due to skipping the first game – but a quick read on the web sites caught me up on the story, and shortly, I could not pull myself away from the game. The stories were engaging, the graphics was intensive, the cities were very real.

Minor complaints on the controls in that your toon may at times jump towards the wrong direction, took a wrong step, etc therefore wasting time if you happen to be chasing someone on the rooftops. But generally the game was forgiving enough and a mission replay is usually quick enough to remove the frustration and keep you going to the next phase.

The Xbox360 version did not allow re-play of completed DNA (memory) stages, which was annoying as the design looked like that was exactly what it would let you do. If you had missed an achievement available only in the DNA sequence, the only way to achieve it is to start a new game. Apparently they fixed this in the PS3 version but not the Xbox version.

Overall, this is an amazing game and a must play for anyone who enjoys a good action story. The good and enjoyable about the game greatly outweigh the minor inconveniences and do not take away from the story.
