Have you ever played the most adventurous game series Assassins Creed on your PC?
If not, I would suggest you try it once in your lifetime.

Well, Assassins Creed II is the second series of Assassins Creed I. It was released in
2009 by Ubisoft. The game is an action and adventure game that follows a similar
history of hostility between Assassins and templars. The game has enhanced features
and several downloadable packs.

The game follows the history of the 21st century during the renaissance period. The
renaissance settings of the game are praise-worthy. Also, it is worth enough to play to
entertain yourself.

The game is based on a story likely to its predecessor. The story plot follows the same
story but at a different time.
Story Plot
At the end of the Assassins Creed I, Desmond was rescued by Lucy Stillman, an
undercover assassin. They go to a remote safe house where they meet Lucy’s team,
historian and analyst Shaun Hastings, and technician Rebecca Crane.
There they make the Animus of their own. Lucy and her team try to bring all those skills
that Desmond’s Ancestors have through the Bleeding effect into Desmond’s Body.

In the Animus, this time, Desmond relives the memory of Ezio Auditore da Firenze
during the Italian renaissance period. Born in 1959, Ezio Auditore was from a noble
banker family. He was living a good life until his life changed after the public
assassination of his father and his brother.
His father and brother were treached by treacherous Templars. When they were in the
prison, Ezio secretly met them and knew that he was from an assassin family.
After execution, he wanted to kill Uberto Alberti, who betrayed them but could not do
because of guards and less equipment Then he ensured his mother’s and sister’s safety
and went to Leonardo da Vinci who repaired his hidden blade. After getting his blade,
he assassinated Uberto Alberti.

Then he took his mother and sister to Monteriggioni, his father’s hometown, where his
uncle was living. In the Monteriggioni Villa, Mario Auditore, Ezio’s uncle, trains him to be
an assassin. At the same time, Marios Auditore shows Ezio the Codex wall which was
coded by legendary Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad. They wanted to find the pieces of
Eden. For that, they needed to recover all the missing codex. So, he runs out in the
mission.

He goes to Florence to kill a pazzi (a community of templar, who were rivals of his
family) where he finds La Volpe, the thief chief of Florence. There he finds that templars
were conspiring to kill the ruler of Florence. He manages to save Lorenzo de Medici and
gets the name of all the templars. Then he assassinates all of them.

Then he thinks of making Venice free of templars. In the course, he makes many allies
like Nicolo Machiavelli. Eventually, he gets to know that Rodrigo Borgia is the templar
grandmaster.

At this time, he had known that his family was executed to find the vault of Eden and
clear the road to the vault.

He also gets to know that the apple of Eden was being transported from Cyprus to
Rome. He distinguished himself as one of the Soldiers. He did this because there was a
belief that only the prophet could open the vault. He killed all the soldiers present during
transportation with the help of his allies, and Rodrigo Borgia Flew away.

Then, the game comes in 1499, where all the codes have been collected, and Rodrigo
Borgia becomes the POPE. To get the pieces of Eden, Ezio required the staff that was
given to the POPE, i.e. Rodrigo Borgia.

So, in the end, Ezio beats Rodrigo in a fistfight.

After beating Rodrigo and leaving him alive, He combines the Apple and the papal staff
(which is also a Piece of Eden), Ezio opens the entrance to the vault. Inside, he meets a
strange woman named Minerva. Minerva is the creature of the first civilization, which
was very advanced. She was aware that Desmond is listening. So, Minerva explains

how her people, the First Civilization, created humanity to serve them but were
subsequently destroyed by a great catastrophe. The survivors made the strange vault to
protect their technology for the protection of earth against future disasters.

Then the Abstergo agents led by Dr. Warren Vidic, who was the abductor of Desmond,
enter the hideout and force the team to abandon everything except the Animus. After
this, the game ends.

Then the story continues in another series, i.e., Assassins Creed: Brotherhood.

Gameplay
The gameplay is not different from Assassins Creed I. The game is arranged in an open
environment and played from a third-person perspective. Besides, the game provides
room to go to several regions of late fifteenth-century Italy such as Venice, Florence,
Monteriggioni, Forlì, San Gimignano, Rome (The Vatican only), and the Tuscany
countryside.

Moreover, you can hire different groups of NPCs, such as mercenaries, courtesans, or
thieves. They can fight, distract, or lure guards.

The fighting style is more complex and even stronger. You get more weapons to fight
with. Also, the game provides you with swords, cutlasses, maces, axes, and daggers,
which can all be purchased from vendors in each city.

The main objective in the game is to find Rodrigo and beat him to get the pieces of
Eden. In this course, you will find a lot of other missions and adventures to entertain
you.

Graphics and animation

The graphics are more enhanced in the game. The assassin can now swim and can
identify specific people and landmarks.
Besides, animations are more smooth, and the health system is more dynamic, with
synchronization to the Animus and causing the character to recover only from minor
injuries. More painful injuries necessitate ministering a street-side doctor or use of
medicine.
The characters in this game are more beautiful. Real-life persons such as Leonardo da
Vinci are also present in the game, who provide Ezio with the required arms
