It's widely known as the "other" awesome November title but in our eyes, Assassin's Creed II is worthy of just as much attention as Modern Warfare 2. If you need more incentive to give this awesome sequel a try, have a gander at the launch trailer...it's just dripping with atmosphere and polish. The game itself is better than the original (a great game in its own right) in just about every possible way, and if you like the idea of a GTA-style adventure set in 15th-century Venice where stealth and ingenuity win out, you gotta buy it. Another must-have for 2009!
