5.0 out of 5 stars The way a sequel should be, November 18, 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Assassin's Creed II: Platinum Hits Edition (Video Game)
The first AC was a great game that suffered from overambition on the part of the developer. Even AC 1's most diehard fans will admit that there were some pretty deep flaws in the game. With AC 2, the developers have actually justified that ambition. AC 2 is exactly what a sequel should be: more things to do, an even deeper story, and more weapons and equipment. There are a lot of great additions to the game that give it a pseudo-rpg feel: you can buy weapons and armor, and also upgrade them, as well as visit doctors and buy medicine. The developers hit it spot on by choosing the Italian Renaissance. Theres no other game that will let you run pretty much freely through famous Italian cities at the height of their glory, much less meet Leonardo da Vinci. But hey, its just a game. Another thing is that the graphics are absolutely fantastic, and this is from someone who almost exclusively plays pc games. With all the great improvements in AC 2, I will have to put a word of warning: even with all the new additions, It plays pretty much exactly like the first game, and I have to say that if you didn't enjoy the first game, then there isnt much that can change your mind about this one. However, for fans of the series, this game really couldnt be any better.
