Assassin’s Creed 2 manages to surpass its predecessor in almost every way.100Cynamite
Fantastic narrative aside, the most important thing to know about AC2 is that it won’t make you want to throw your controller through your TV like the first game did.100GameSpy

Exploring the world and performing assassinations is fun and feels like a lived-in experience. Shame the world is rather lacking in engaging activities.70CausticMisery
Great game and a great assassin, but the game aged poorly. It’s got some glitches and bugs that make it very frustrating.40penmumble
