Assassins Creed II isnt just an easy sequel. Instead theres a new hero, a young Italian noble called Ezio Auditore da Firenze, and a new setting, the Renaissance. Not as brutal and cold as the Hitmen series, Assassins Creed II is steeped in history and attention to detail.
The epic story entails family, vengeance, conspiracy and plenty of cloaks and daggers as the protagonist navigates the canals of Venice, treks through Florence and even meets Leonardo da Vinci in his quest to become a master assassin.
