iPhone Gamer Blog writes, "Assassins Creed 2: Discovery on the iPhone and iPod Touch plays a lot like an action game that wants you to think it is something else. To give you a little background, Assassins Creed 2, like the first game, takes place in the past with you as an assassin. Its plot is actually weirder and more complicated but let's just goes with that. As an assassin you need to be stealthy in order to not get overwhelmed by your enemies, right? In theory yes, in practice no. In fact, the game forces you to be stealthy without giving you any reason to do so (other than losing missions)."
