I am a huge fan of the series, and even I'll tell you that unless you're only interested in the storyline, you're better off starting with AC2. Its amazing how much better that is from AC1. That said, if you are interested in the storyline (which is pretty cool IMO, I've played it a second time just for that and the last couple of missions that were really challenging) there are ways to get through it a little faster.
