Assassin's Creed II review
Exceptional
by Luke Irvin

This game improves on literally every flaw of the original. Any complaints I had about the original (monotonous, collectible hunting had no real purpose, etc.) was remedied in the sequel. The plot is very engaging and well written and performed considering the age of this game. Speaking of which, this game's visuals have held up spectacularly considering it is 12 years old at the time of writing this review. The collectibles have value and either contribute to the plot, or provide benefit to you, as opposed to mindless flag-hunting. All in all, a must-play for anyone, and I mean anyone, because everyone should play this.

arguabley the best AC, I wouldn't say so, but its influence and last impression on gaming and the Ubisoft formula can't be overstated.
Really perfects what AC1 was going for.
Man this was good
A great way to learn architecture. I found it very interesting to read the history of building foundations from the pop-up notes on the screen. It was as if I had been on a tour of medieval Florence, Tuscany, Venice and other places in Renaissance Italy. And Jesper Kyd's soundtrack was a great addition to this atmosphere of exploration.
