One of the best games I have ever played. When my 13 year old asked for Assassins Creed II for Christmas last year I was reluctant for many reasons. I finally agreed. Shortly afterwards he said he wanted to study Italian at School.
Later when the cost of the game went down to £5 I bought a copy for myself. I have not had so much fun since the early days of Lara Croft. The game is fun, exciting and at times I am terrified as I leap from one house to another, or try to find my way out of a problem.
Overall I would say it is the best game I have ever played. My son loved it and it encouraged him to do Italian at school - what more could you ask of a computer game. Assassin's Creed II (PC)
