Assassin's Creed 2 delivers a game that's bigger, better, and deeper than the first. And it's actually fun as a fully functional stealth-action game. It not only answers criticisms aimed at the first, it fixes almost every problem, and adds more variety, combat depth, exploration, and personality to the mix. Nearly everything has a purpose for being in the game, and everything ties back into the main theme. In amongst the great expanse of gameplay, a few minor issues stuck out: collecting 100 feathers is a ridiculous, arduous task; the required fetch quest near the game's end is forced and annoying, and because of the game's size, some gamers won't ever return to the game's early cities. Still, these are small complaints laid upon a game that fulfills the original's promise.
