With Assassin's Creed 2 releasing very soon, here are the top 10 reasons why it will be much better than the original.
"7 - Hire Members of the Public to Do Your Dirty Work -
Now, this is very interesting. In Assassin's Creed 2, you'll be able to hire out Thieves, Prostitutes, or Mercenaries to help you progress through the game. Hiring a thief can beat up some enemies and also the player can ask them to do certain activities like distracting guards, stealing money, and setting up fires for the use with the glider. Mercenaries, however, will have the player get some help during a fight and also have them beat someone up without involving you. Finally, with hiring prostitutes, the player will get the same advantage similar to the monks in the original Assassin's Creed. They will help to cover the present of the player to the guards and they can also distract guards as well."
