Assassin’s Creed II is a ninja assassin game, but it does not take place in Japan. It takes place in Italy, and it is the second game in the series. This game takes place in the late 1400s. This game it about this man who hates the Templars. In the beginning of the game, you are going to fight the Templars. Later in the game Templars, kill his father and his two brothers. He becomes a assassin so he can get revenge at the Templars that killed the male members of his family. When I played Assassin’s Creed II I said, “This is cooler than Call of Duty.” In this game there are no guns. The weapons in this game are swords and daggers. The guns that were used back then were more like small cannons, and very clumsy and deadly to use. This game is off the chain and looks like Tenchu but, it does not have samurais, as there is no Japanese culture in the Assassin’s Creed games. So, If you want play ninja assassin-style game with a great variant on a theme, play Assassin’s Creed II. There are other Assassin’s Creed games out there, the first set in Byzantium during the Crusades, and another due to come out soon, set during the American Revolution, plus a few other titles. If you enjoy history with a twist, or are into Renaissance Italy, then you will really enjoy this game.
