Preview: Assassin’s Creed II

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Genre: Stealth / Action Adventure
Platform(s): PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360
Release Date: November 17, 2009
Official Website:

The sequel to the original Assassin’s Creed continues from where its predecessor left. Desmond Miles is back, this time taking control of another descendant from Italy named Ezio Auditore da Firenze (who is a descendant of Altaïr, the protagonist in the first game). Ezio becomes an assassin after his father was executed and he plans to get revenge on the rival families that murdered his father.

The game takes place in Italy during the Renaissance and some of the places that you will visit are Venice, Rome and Florence. Throughout the course of the game, Ezio is helped by a historical figure and close friend, Leonardo da Vinci. The latter develops a number of creations for Ezio to use.

Expectations are high for this game especially after a number of previews and videos that were released. Here’s one of these videos which shows Assassin’s Creed II as a big contender to ‘The Game of the Year’ award. All Assassin’s Creed fans are looking forward to own this sequel.

Expectations are High High


  1. I didn’t particularly enjoy the first game, but this one looks like a vast improvement.

  2. I am really looking forward for this game. In the first game I didn’t just do the minimum investigations and then left to assassinate the target. I enjoyed it so much that I did all investigations so I’m expecting something better (and it seems to be) from Assassin’s Creed II.
