The official Xbox 360 magazine has revealed a few interesting tidbits of information on their website regarding the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed 2, including news that it will feature a property investment mini-game that they describe as being “rewarding and fun.”
Judging by their remarks, which are based on time spent playing the game in preparation for review, it appears that the main character Ezio will have a range of combat moves that Altair didn’t have in the first game, including the ability to “pick people up and throw them around” and “kick them while they’re on the ground.” The reviewer describes the combat as “FANTASTICALLY violent.”
Furthermore, they’ve revealed that we’ll be able to jump into a Gondola and punt around the canals of Venice. Though nothing was revealed about the game’s storyline, they have said that the ending of Assassin's Creed 1 will be explained and that the game is "infinitely better than the first game." Sounds very promising!
We’ll have a full review of Assassin’s Creed II ahead of its release date in North America on November 17, 2009 and in PAL regions on November 20, 2009.

iono, i made it to an event in early october to play the game, I spoke with one of the designer, the game looks almost done and very polished, looks great and all, but then the setup of the event had uncharted 2 right beside it, and made ACII look terrible. But anyways if anyone is intersting in my convo with the lead level designer for ACII, http://www.youtube.com/user/Taehyunnie#p/a/u/1/pNej3aZ2Ni4

Very well. I will be the first to buy this. because i have a jet that takes me to the place that makes them and i always get what i want, plus when im on the jet i can just fly around and smoke, and play ps3 on 80' lcd tv. waste gas. and pop bottles. when i use the washroom on my jet i can flush on all the starving children in Africa. then when i land i can buy a sh** load of fast food and watch football all day but i will play AC2 all night, cuz at night i really do it big, i call all the sortys to come and smoke, and play AC2! plus give/receive "back rubs." im just stunner like that. up there with little wayne and u know, the same 36 same songs on the radio. those people type rich, ceo, big boss. so take your little 9 to 5 and stuff it, because im Barak Obama.

The first game was a huge and repetitive disappointment. They can hype the sequel all they want, but it just doesn't mean anything. To me at least.

@9 agreed, dont care for the hype for AC2 (or MW2 on that matter) both the prequels bored me

i dont care what they say. they all gave AC1 9/10 and 10s so i will judge for myself

@7, Please don't bring politics into a video game discussion. On another note, Please message me, I can help you find a good vet to check you out, you seem to have problems.
Anyways, sounds interesting but I won't pick it up upon release, I've already exhausted most of my spending funds on other games such as Uncharted 2, Modern Warfare and Ratchet and Clank this fourth quarter, need to save for Christmas!.
