Assassin's Creed 2 was like the most EPIC third-person action-adventure game I have ever played to date. Not only was the story line fictional, but a lot of the things you learn about Italy, what's hidden in the glyphs and so forth are true. Some, not all. They put so much work into this game not only to make it epic, but to make it better than the previous game.
I liked how you could change the color of you robes, and how you actually see a significant change in your armor when you get a new set. The free-running is amazing, and I spent the majority of my time playing that game just running around on the roof tops and killing any guard that got in my way. I also like how jumping from rooftops or post for a Leap of Faith into a haybail is so realistic and unrealistic. It's realistic enough to make the same movements and sounds if one jumped in one, but let's be serious: Making a Leap of Faith off of Giotto’s Campanile was suicidal and would have killed anyone actually attempting to do it. lol videogames
