    I never knew the 1400's was this cool! I thought it was just art and the black plague.

    I have played the first Assassin's Creed & I have to say that the second is a great improvement. The fighting is better. Especially the fist fighting. Now instead of punching & tossing into a wall. I can punch, kick, knee, grapple, kick in the stomach & the croch. The missions have variety unlike the first one. Eavsdrop, follow then mugg, & pickpockiting. And the use of people to avoid the guards while under suspicion is great. unlike running through the rooftop & getting stopped by archers & roof guards. Oh & the pistol is nice too.

    It really deserves that rating, because if the game still hasn't fixed its old problems then you have to strait off take out 1 star, but the game has added new ability's like cool new ways to kill you opponent and finally you can use dual blades. Not to mention you have to be more aware or your enemy's weapons and armor, that makes this game feel a lot more real.

    I'm very surprised this didn't get a 5 but I guess when a game strives to do so much, problems are more likely to occur. Anyways, can't wait to get the game this xmas.

    I've been waiting ages for this game. It's good to see a game company that takes the fan response to heart when making a sequel. I mean most companies do it but this is a shining example of developers listening to our constructive criticism and tweaking the gameplay to make it more entertaining. I think the character development will also add replayability to the game as well. It's also great that they plan to do more with Desmond too, in the first game I kinda got frustrated with how little they did with him, it got to the point where you just got into Altair's story and all of sudden you get sucked out to watch Desmond go to bed for the night. The computer hacking and what not wasn't quite what I thought would be done with an assassin's decendent.
