I really liked the first AC and the sequel was even better. This outing finds you in Florence, Italy as a new assassin name Ezio. The core stealth and parkour gameplay stays the same but the graphics and climbing mechanics have been tightened up to offer a more responsive experience. You also have more weapons and tools at your disposal this time around, with the ability to upgrade them. While dealing with very serious murdery business, the story is entertaining and funny while you play through some beautifully crafted set pieces. The game will last you over 20 hours with plenty of side quests and collectibles that offer to expand the fascinating lore, you know, before it got bloated and confusing.
