"Assassin's Creed II" takes players to Renaissance Italy

In 15th century Italy, a young nobleman finds himself betrayed by a rival family, and seeks vengeance against his enemies. The plot of an engaging new film or novel? No, it's the storyline for Assassin's Creed II, Ubisoft's top-selling video game set in the Renaissance.

Assassin's Creed II "plunges players into a captivating and epic story that offers more variety in missions, surprising and engaging new game play elements, diverse weapons, incredible depth and lasting appeal and a profound character progression that will appeal to fans of the original Assassin’s Creed as well as entice players new to the brand."

The game has also caught the notice of academics who hope that it, and other such games, may help spur interest in history among gamers.

Played it all the way through

Great game, neat architecture, neat clothes, neat environment.
