Assassin’s Creed II is the second game in a long series of Assassin’s Creed games that have come out from past to present and have captured the attention of gamers the world over, but one thing is for sure that a few Assassin’s Creed games have stood out from the rest and that game, in my opinion, is Assassin’s Creed II.

Incidentally, I know the game has been out a while but I picked it up recently because I was sort of interested in seeing how it plays and I have to say that I am impressed. In all honesty, conspiracies in the Assassin’s Creed games have always intrigued me and I thought finding the answer to these conspiracies were going to be difficult but it is everything but.

A Templar lair, I can’t wait to start hunting these!

I’ve played a little of Assassin’s Creed II and I’m impressed with what I have seen thus far; I did hit a few bumps in the road but I believe that its only a minor setback. I just bought me some new sword upgrades as well as dagger upgrades. I will discuss my game progress thus far, Uncle Mario, a strategy I’ve come up with and how addictive the game has become. So, having said that, let’s go to…..

My game progress so far

Right now, I just found some more Codex pages and really sticking to the guards that are standing in my way of getting treasure chests. I was getting a little frustrated because I can’t find Leo’s workshop to turn these pages over to him but so far I’m definitely into the game. Also, I just killed that Vieri De’ Pazzi prick; I mean the fact that he had bodyguards all around him watching his back proves what a coward he is.

Yeah justice, you got what you deserved!

I felt good driving my sword through him and watching him die, I mean he was a real douchebag. For a while, it was starting to suck always sneaking around the guards; I wanted to man up and fight them because Firenze is my home and I felt like a punk not be able to defend myself in it.

The local shops are on hit, I just bought a couple of swords, daggers and other things to really stick it to the guards; no guards are going to push me around because I’m taking their heads off. Again, I’m in the process of finding Leo’s workshop so I can turn in the Codex pages in my possession.

Uncle Mario

I just got done getting trained by Uncle Mario and I’ve become a pure blood assassin, I’ve done moves that have wiped the floor with guards immediately. I did think it was kind of dirty for Ezio to think only about himself instead of trying to stay close to his uncle who was trying to be there for him but I’m glad that Ezio came around and decided to stay.

Uncle Mario comes off to me as a man of means and one of the deadliest assassins to ever walk the earth, it is without a doubt that he chose the path he chose and it speaks to him as well as of him. I get that Mario is a talented man but I feel that he has secrets of his own but not to the extent of endangering his life or his family’s.

Ultimately, I hope Mario lives throughout Ezio’s adventure because he is a very prominent member on Ezio’s team and I hope that Ezio does more for his uncle; I also feel like Mario can teach Ezio so much more but it is great that Mario stuck his neck out for family. Mario made me appreciate what it means to look out for family.

What I’ve begun doing i.e. treasure map buy

I’ve begun buying treasure maps in the various locales because doing this will tell me about the treasure chests no matter where they hide. When I was first looking for treasure chests and read about that merchants sell maps, I decided to go ahead and get one. I found all the treasure within the town and was like millions of dollars richer.

My advice to you, buy a treasure map everywhere you go and in every town you visit because you never what you’ll find. Granted, you find money but that money can be used to buy all the weapons and equipment you need. Money also come in handy when you’re in need of healing or need to buy extra healing supplies.

The treasure maps are worth their weight in gold and then some so don’t get in the habit of trying to live or just ignore the possibility of needing a treasure map because you’re in a rush; don’t be. The game is “etched” out in a way that you can buy what you need to and still have money left over to bribe guards or hire someone for something.

Once you start, you can’t stop

Assassin’s Creed II is an excellent game that keeps you entertained for hours and there’s so much to learn about the nation of Rome and Italy as a whole. I’ve always been a fan of knowledge, but what I’ve learned playing this game really opened my eyes to the various aspects of history that’s involved with the nation and the possible civil war.

Once you start playing this game, you’re never going to want to stop; I have to admit that I feel a little impeded because I’m trying to find Leonardo’s workshop but its great to be able to find the Codex pages without being hounded by the guards even though they all meet a grisly death when they walk within arm’s length of me.

The game has captivated me in the way that all of my games do like I never want to stop playing the game until its done. I have to admit that I didn’t think I was going to like the game that much but I do and I can say that it has possibly motivated me to pick up other Assassin’s Creed games. Sorry if I’m a little late to this party gaming friends.


Assassin’s Creed II is a great game that, if you never got into the Assassin’s Creed franchise before now, would be a great place to start so as to understand the concept behind the Assassin’s and the Templars. The progress in the game thus far says that I’m well on my way to ending this conflict.

Uncle Mario is a great confidant and ally, it is without question that he is truly a man to model after; buying treasure maps is a great way to put money in your pocket, don’t not do it. The game is great and once you start, you won’t be able to put the controller down. If you have any questions about my post then please get at me and I’ll respond immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.
