IncGamers' Tamer Asfahani spends a few hours in the company of Assassin's Creed 2.
From the preview: "With each faction come mini 'objective-based' games, perhaps better referred to as side missions. These range from delivering a message or picking up a box, to roughing someone up. You'll be financially rewarded for completing these missions, but, when compared to looting bodies, booty boxes or people on the street, it isn't much, so it's a good thing that financial gain really isn't the point of these side missions. What is interesting, though, is that in my two hours of playing the game, I didn't come across a mission I'd played before. A far cry from the original."
