Assassin's Creed II review at GameStooge.com

GameStooge posts its review of one of the Games of the Year: Assassin's Creed II.

Excerpt: "Experienced Assassin's Creed players will appreciate the old and new gameplay mechanics. The biggest change are the light RPG additions. For one, money is now a part of the game. Ezio, unlike Altair, a paid Assassin. He can earn florin by completing missions, pickpocketing citizens, finding treasure chests scattered around the cities, and taking money off incapacitated foes; it's fun to watch the horrified reaction of passerby when you loot dead bodies. Ezio in turn uses the money to buy weapons, ammunition such as throwing daggers, and other things that will improve his estate. It's particularly fun to upgrade the estate in that it slowly goes from a boarded up, dilapidated mansion to a shiny, marble home that rivals most museums. The better your home, the more money it generates, so buying Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci isn't just scenery – it's necessary. So go ahead and renovate the brothel in your town – it'll pay for itself." (Assassin's Creed 2, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.5/5

Can't wait for part 3.

Mine as well. I love everything from the level design to the attention to detail and massive scope of the game. And the missions are much better than in the first one. Especially fond of the assassin's tomb missions. Only minor complaint is the italo-english voice overs that feel a bit porno at times.
