Assassin's Creed 2 is one of the few examples of a truly superior sequel, improving on almost every aspect of its predecessor while introducing new gameplay elements, weapons and gear of its very own. We've noticed a couple of noteworthy deals for both the regular and the complete versions of the game, which includes all of the DLC packs that flesh out the last act of the story.
Let's start with the original package, which Play.com are selling for £14.99. This will save you £3 compared to Coolshop, and will provide many hours of rooftop scampering shenanigans.

Conversely, you might consider splashing out an extra three quid to net the Complete version, which contains the Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities DLC packs as well as extra Templar locations (each of which will cost you a few quid on XBLA or the Playstation Network) and will save you £7 compared to Blockbuster's nearest offering.

The DLC packs are a surprisingly solid and entertaining diversion that explain many mysteries of the story (such as how Ezio gets his stylish beard) and fill in several years of the canon. The flying machine also makes a welcome return, which was a criminally-underused part of the original campaign.
