IGN Writes: Confession time: I haven't been very excited for Assassin's Creed II. I never got around to playing the first one and nothing I had seen or read about the sequel was enough to steal some of my attention away from other holiday releases like DJ Hero, Brutal Legend, and Modern Warfare 2. But that changed today after spending some quality time with Assassin's Creed II at TGS. It's a very pretty game and assassinating fools is a pleasure. From the moment I climbed to the top of a bell tower, gazed out over a beautiful ocean, then leaped off to bury my knives in two guards at once, I was hooked.
