Assassin's Creed II
I managed to get through Assassin's Creed II over the holidays on the PS3. It felt easier than the first version, specifically at the end, but it was a very worthy and rich adventure. The story plays out in 15th century Italy, and the scenery is breathtaking at times. You have to climb many towers and do a lot of jumping really high above the ground. I actually used Google maps from Venice from time to time to find locations :-) The story ends somewhat suddenly, with clear hints towards AC3.
