Is This Game Better Than The First?

I hated the first game for MANY reasons... is AC2 a lot better? I've heard it's good, but some people enjoyed the first game, too...

Definatly. The second one is the best of the series. Its the most enjoyable game of all. The storyline is the best and the character Ezio is so easy to get attached to.

II is much, much better than I. I instantly liked it. More weapons, more to do, more memorable moments.

Yeah man, it's better in every way. Ezio is a far more interesting character than Altair, more variety in the missions, better story, graphics, it takes the potential of the first game and fully realizes it.
An absolute must have game, IMO.

I liked the first one, but the second war far better - the story was more interesting and the missions were far less repetitive. Definitely my favourite game in the series.

AC 2 exceeds the first due to much improved gameplay, bigger maps, brighter atmosphere and the whole estate minigame. Ezio also has much more personality and character development than Altair.

One thing all AC games have are collectibles. If you don't like doing it then stay away from it.

Ithink that AC 2 was better ballanced than the 1st one, the item you collect, the fact that you can swim, controls are better and Its me, Mario joke that make me laugh. I like the 1st one but the second was an upgrade over the 1st

7.5/10 for AC 1
9/10 for AC 2

Personally I loved AC1, but AC2 was definitely better. That only thing that sucked was the flags were hard to find. But this is the 1 game I have 100% on

Yes. First is one of the worst in the series. Well, it is the worst. But that's because it was the first, and it's age shows,

Second is pretty good, although doesn't stand up to the new ones impo.
