As­sasin’s Creed II

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - ASSASIN'S CREED ODYSSEY -

De­vel­oper Ubisoft Mon­treal / re­lease 2009

With the now iconic Jes­per Kyd sound­track, this Ital­ian mas­ter­piece is where it all went so right for the se­ries. 15th cen­tury hooded lothario Ezio is a charmer, but the sprawl­ing sun-kissed cities of Florence, Tus­cany and Venice are the true stars. The streets and rooftops are packed with po­ten­tial. Sid­e­quests! Chests! Codex pages! Leonardo da Vinci… A juicy re­venge quest cat­a­pults the nar­ra­tive for­ward, but it's the in­di­vid­ual mo­ments that mat­ter most. The juicy ad­di­tion of the se­cond hid­den blade, the at­mo­spheric hid­den tombs. Add in the small mat­ter of a town, Mon­terig­gioni, to up­grade, and AC 2 says req­ui­s­cat en pace to the slight rep­e­ti­tion of the orig­i­nal.
