Assassin’s Creed 2: Released November 17, 2009 – Two years after AC1’s release! One of my favorite parts to this game wasn’t a game at all. A couple weeks before its release, Ubisoft put out a three episode series featuring characters from the game in a sort of prequel situation. You can watch it on YouTube in its entirety. The CG may be a little outdated, but I own it on DVD, so there’s that… (I’m in it for the story!)

As you level up your brotherhood, you unlock new rooms you can build, which all do different things (I haven’t gotten to them all) like earning money, gathering “intel” (which is basically the your action scale for how many missions you can run), training your characters to level them up (increasing health and damage), and smith rooms to make armor and weapons. You kill people, break into chests, and fetch resources and DNA. With the DNA you gather, you earn new playable characters which are rated on the “common – rare” scale. This aspect of the game is tugs at the “gotta catch ’em all” mindset which might have been the “hook” in the design of the game.
