This review is from: Assassin's Creed II: Platinum Hits Edition (Video Game)
Xbox Live recently started their Games for Gold program where they give members a free game every month. This month was Assassin's Creed II, but having never played any games from the series, I decided to give it a try. So far I am about 20 hours into it, doing all of the side quests that I can find along with the main story.
The gameplay is fun and addictive. I love the open world feel to it. Combat is top-notch, has depth and is a lot of fun as well. I like the character customization which gives it an RPG feel in my opinion, the story is also interesting. Music is superb and the platforming levels really shine.
I was pleasantly surprised as this game is an easy 5 stars all around. I am glad Microsoft did this promotion or I wouldn't have even tried out this series. I plan on getting the sequels after I finish. Highly recommend it, outstanding game.

I whole heartedly agree! I didn't care for the original, but thanks to this being free, I tried and loved it. I urge anyone who didn't like the original to try this one. It's like night and day.

I played AC Revelations months back as my first try on the series, it didn't make sense to me as I played. But now I get to play this for free and now everything all of sudden makes sense now. I should've tried this one first. But overall experience is enjoyable and addicting. Excellent game.
