Game Designer Reviews Assassin’s Creed 2

More than a decade after its initial release in 2009, open world action-adventure title Assassin’s Creed 2 remains one of the most beloved titles in the now long-running franchise. Following the mixed reception of the original Assassin’s Creed, the second game is seen by fans as establishing a number of gameplay and story elements now considered franchise staples, such as enhanced interaction options with NPCs, overhead Eagle Vision, and a nonlinear story with multiple cities to explore. Since 2009, Assassin’s Creed 2 has spawned several direct sequels and seen multiple re-releases, including as part of the 2016 Ezio Collection, which brought the title to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
