Have Xbox Live Gold? Assassin's Creed 2 is now available for free on your 360
Assassin's Creed II is the next game available as a free download for consumers with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. Simply boot up your Xbox 360 console and download the game from the Marketplace. As a title that's usually priced at $19.99, this is an absolute bargain, especially if you've played the first game and have not yet looked at continuing the experience.

I wish I could like it more than brotherhood but the weather in AC2 gets really ugly and cloudy sometimes and I really hate that weather. Just ruins the gameplay for me.
One of the few games that made me care about the story, and the charactors.
Skill level just right, tricky without being punishing. Loved it.
I have Brotherhood which I hear mechnically is great, just doesn't have such a great story.
Dammit, what was the first one they did that I have know presumably missed the window for?
