Assassin's Creed II for Xbox 360
An ancient city - quite unlikely to be the site for an action adventure game? Wrong! Join Ezio the Assassin in Rome and you will certainly have second thoughts on the subject. The tasks set for Ezio to complete collection of artefacts from tombs, or to figure out the best route from one point to your destination. You must also chase enemies in tombs but would counter hurdles that let you chart another way to solve the problem.
The game offers enough momentum to keep it going. Whether you are sneaking up from behind or taking a plunge in front, or attacking from above, the action is swift and spectacular. BY finishing missions, stealing, pickpocketing and by upgrading your villa you can obtain florins that can be used to color your dress, buy maps that indicate location of treasure, or even to add to your armory.
Disappear into crowds, use ruses like courtesans and thieves to escape from guards. You can go on assassination jobs, decipher glyphs or retrieve stolen money. So, when you can roam freely and yet embark on a thrill ride, will you miss it?
