Assassin's Creed fans are in agreement that Assassin's Creed II is one of gaming's greatest stories, which is high praise indeed.
Here at GAMINGbible we all love a good video game story, obviously. I still remember the first time I got to the end of The Last Of Us' opening sequence and cried my eyes out for a good five minutes. And I'm not sure the ending of Red Dead Redemption 2, as Arthur rides towards camp and is hit with memories of his adventures, will ever leave me.
Assassin's Creed fans all agree that Ezio Auditore is the greatest of all the assassins, and a fair few would even suggest he's gaming's greatest protagonist. It should come as no surprise, then, that everyone adores the first game he starred in.

Assassin's Creed II is a perfect sequel. Bigger and better than the original game in every way, it gave us a much more compelling central character, and managed to up the stakes while making everything feel much more intimate and personal. It's an adventure that has stayed with fans, and continues to impress newcomers.
"I just finished playing Assassin's Creed I for the first time, and bloody hell it is genuinely one of the best games I've had the pleasure of playing," enthused Reddit user _T_Y_R_.
They added: "Assassin's Creed II absolutely has one of the best stories in gaming, and I'm so glad I played it. I already can't wait to play the next game. I have so many damn questions!"
Fans have urged the newcomer to head to Revelations or Brotherhood next to continue Ezio's story rather than jumping straight to Assassin's Creed III, which they fully intend to do. It's always heartening to see gamers come to classic titles years after they launched and discover just how special they still are. We hope you continue to enjoy your Assassin's Creed journey, _T_Y_R_.
