What Gamespot Users have to say about Assassin's Creed II

    Once again - the best thing about Assassins Creed 2 is simply being there!

    Everybody has their own opinions about what a perfect game is. In my opinion, no game should ever receive a full 10/10 score - because that implies perfection, and as we all know perfection does not exist. Assassins ... Read Full Review

    A major improvement from the first a definite buy.

    Lets start of by saying that this game was an improvement from the first. Though there a few flaws in this game, I am sure they will be evened out in the third game. The story was good through out the game except for th... Read Full Review

    Much improved since AC1!

    I have been looking forward to this game for awhile. I indeed really liked the first game, but it just felt unfinished. The first game had a few big problems, mainly being repetitive, some frame rate issues, and the sto... Read Full Review
