Assassin’s Creed: II

I will seek vengeance upon those who have betrayed my family. Only to uncover a conspiracy bigger than I could have imagined.

I am Ezio Auditore Da Firenze. I am an assassin

Summary-

Assassin’s Creed is redefined in this unique game. This game demarcates the start of the Ezio Trilogy.

It has a stunning storyline, intense gameplay and violent fighting. Assassin’s Creed II is one of my favorite in the series.

Assassin’s Creed II is a 2009 action adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Monteal and published by Ubisoft.

REVIEW-

Roaming through the streets( or rather the rooftops, I hardly touched the streets), I noticed how intricately Ubisoft had recreated the environment of beautiful cities from the Fifteenth Century. From fruit sellers to fishermen, the game gives a rebirth to the cities.

The storyline is also mind blowing (duh, its assassins creed!).Never will you find yourself skipping the cinematics.

Assassin’s creed II just surpassed the expectation, after the Assassin’s Creed. The cities that are included are Tuscany, Florence, Venice,  (Vatican) Rome, Monterriggini and also the untouched mountains.

Even after finishing the gameplay, there are numerous things to do, such as assassinations and Races,etc. You can also collect the Seals to unlock a special suit. Collect Codex sheets hidden by Altair and take them to Leonardo Da Vinci to get new inventions, such as weapons and tools. In fact, the storyline is just about 50% of the game.

By many critics, Assassin’s Creed II has been claimed as the best Assassin’s Creed ever. I am strongly of this opinion.

At a whole, Assassin’s creed II is an extremely exciting game, exclusively for those seeking an epic action-adventure.

 Storyline-

(spoiler alert)

Desmond Miles is rescued by Lucy Stillman and taken to a safehouse. From there, Desmond accesses a dub of the animus, the “Baby”. From the “baby”, Desmond is made to Investigate on Ezio, an ancestor of Desmond.

Ezio grows up as a young ruffian, when his father and brothers are framed and hanged by a magistrate. He, seeking vengeance, kills him. Ezio goes to his ancestral home of Monterrigini, where his uncle Mario informs him that he was a part of an order, the Assassin’s.

After being trained by Uncle Mario, Ezio, seeking vengeance, vows to kill all those responsible for framing his father’s and brothers’ death. This takes him to a great number of people, such as politicians, bankers, clergymen, and merchants.

While in Venice, he learns the identity of the Templar grandmaster known as the “Spaniard”: Rodrigo Borgia.

Ezio infiltrates Vatican City during Mass and beats Rodrigo in a fistfight. He then combines the Apple and the Staff to enter the vault. He then meets Minerva. Minerva is actually talking to Desmond, through Ezio. She explains the existence of the First Civilisation, which, after creating humanity, was destroyed.

Afterwards, Abstergo agents enter the hideout, forcing Desmond and his friends to leave.
