“I will seek vengeance upon those who have betrayed my family. I did not choose this path, yet I know it is my destiny. I am Ezio Auditore Da Firenze. I am an Assassin.”
Ezio is 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 a captivating and epic story that offers more variety in missions, surprising and engaging new gameplay elements, diverse weapons, incredible depth and lasting appeal, and a profound character progression that will appeal to fans of the original Assassin’s Creed as well as entice players new to the brand.
Assassin’s Creed II is a truly beautiful masterpiece, where exploration and combat are graceful, fluid and wonderfully rewarding, set in the stunning world of Renaissance Italy – not the usual sort of setting for an action game, but then Assassin’s Creed isn’t one to play by the rules.
Players are given total freedom to explore multiple cities using greatly improved parkour skills and the new ability to swim. Combat has also been completely overhauled, with dozens of different weapons and a new health system. With no less than Leonardo da Vinci acting as your very own Q-style gadget master this immense sequel improves on every element of the ever-popular original.
Assassin’s Creed II is without doubt one of the greatest games of its time. This is a game that should be in everybody’s collection.
