Ars Technica delves into the world of 15th Century Italy and reviews the sequel to Assassin’s Creed, bearing a very similar name to the original, as they’ve simply added a 2.  It takes place about 300 years after the first game and is perfectly playable for those who missed the first game.  It is the Renaissance, so expect some interesting gadgets to appear during your travels to supplement your trusty blade.  The Italian spoken in the game may be a little questionable but does help with the atmosphere. 

“Assassin’s Creed 2 is a shining example of a sequel, fixing its predecessor’s flaws while at the same time expanding upon its strengths in nearly every way.”
