Having entered the Animus and discovering the Templars' plot, gamers had to wait two years to return to the past in Assassin's Creed II. While Desmond Miles returns as the modern-day playable character, we do not experience the life or Altaïr, the Assassin of the first game, but instead Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a Renaissance Era Italian. Now Desmond is not only searching for information, but also trying to learn how to fight and survive.
As you would hope with many sequels, numerous changes have been implemented to the gameplay, including an economy, weapon selection, and subtitles! Upgrading to Animus 2.0 has its benefits. Of course among the changes are new ways to kill people, so it should not be surprising that Assassin's Creed II has an M rating from the ESRB for blood, intense violence, strong language, as well as sexual content.
Does Assassin's Creed II stand the test of time, or is it best left in the forgotten past? Read on to find out.
