  Amazing game!

Well, what can I say, they've done it again with this one. Though not the true sequel to Assassin's Creed 2, it follows it very well from the ending of Assassin's Creed 2 to continue Ezio's story. They have done an amazing job at improving the graphics and gameplay beyond what Assassin's Creed 2 offered, which I was more than pleased with.

The game looks and sounds amazing but the biggest point is the gameplay. They've not only taken it from Assassin's Creed 2 (which was far superior to the first game in gameplay) but they've also improved upon it. There are some new elements to the gameplay such as your recruitment of assassins that you pay and send on missions to gain experience (that in turn allows you to upgrade their armour and weapons). These assassins can also be called upon to drop in during combat and assist you.

The game is based in Rome and fast-travel is done through underground tunnels throughout the city. You can renovate shops, banks, etc, and this not only provides outlets for you to buy from but it also increases the financial status of Rome. Every 20 minutes you get revenue from your renovations as well. Gameplay-wise, you can also now ride your horse anywhere and call upon it by whistling. Being able to ride your horse anywhere is great as you can jump straight off to assassinate targets.

Besides these new elements, some tried and true elements are back in that you can get side missions from factions (thief, mercenary and courtesans guilds) and solve puzzles for "The Truth" clips. Another thing they've stuck to is an increasing interesting and engaging storyline - can never fault this in the Assassin's Creed series.

If you want to see if you'll enjoy it, try Assassin's Creed 2. If you enjoy or enjoyed that, get this one now! :)
