Although many frowned on the original for being repetitive, we still adored its polish, immersion, and fluidity. Therefore, the sequel is very high on our "must-see" list for 2009, and we can't wait to dive into Ezio's adventure in Assassin's Creed II. For a unique look at the inner workings of the gameplay and atmosphere, check out the latest Developer Diary, which only proves that Ubisoft has put a tremendous amount of effort into this follow-up title. We'll see a greatly enhanced foundation and much of it can be attributed to your surroundings, and the people who inhabit those surroundings. Really, this should be both beautiful and tremendously accomplished.
