Assassins Creed 2 has to be my all time favourite video game. The game takes place in Renaissance Italy where you play as a guy in prison in the modern day but travel back in time in a machine called an animus to uncover something called "The Truth". Along the way you learn the skills of an assassin and free run the walls of ancient Rome and interact with historic characters such as the great inventor Leonardo Da Vinci. The Gameplay was easy I was expecting to have a little difficulty with the free running but picked it up very fast. How ever at times you will run off the edge because the camera angle can make difficulty by not show what's on top of the next roof. The fighting is easy and players can have a stealth like approach to killing enemies in the game as well as being able to shoot your enemies with the worlds first gun. The graphics rival real life and adds a astonishing smooth texture and shadows to complement your surroundings and makes you fell as your in the game. Don't bother getting a second controller there is no 2 player. The sound is very realistic but the voices and comments can get repetitive as in all games. It is older in the series so it is cheap. I would strongly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys realistic RPG's.
