I have observed some differences between AC2 and Brotherhood gameplay wise. Some are obvious, like the addition of kill streaks, and some aren't.
1. Hired courtesans don't fight anymore. Once a fight is initiated, they would just run away. I remember the kept daggers strapped to their thighs back in AC2.
2. Hired thieves steal from citizens. I noticed when I hired some thieves, I see 10f 16f 14f popping up on the screen like i've been pickpocketing. I don't remember them doing that in AC2.
3. Vigilantes are back from AC1. It's funny how they look almost the same as the ones from the crusade.
That's all I can think for now. Feel free to share your observations.
Auto-Walking while Blended in a moving crowd. Oh man I love that addition.
Courtesans never really fought in AC2, but they the guards did go beserk on them for wielding knives and were a good distraction for a few seconds. I remember the first time it happened, thinking, where on earth did all the guards run off to? I turn around and see like 4 guards slaughtering those whores

Flags are back + there are now maps for all collectibles (treasures, feathers and flags).
The 100% sync requirements.
I haven't played AC2 in a while but does anyone remember if the courtesans auto left your group to distract guards that gets within their range? >.> That was sooooo annoying when I had to infiltrate the pagan festival thing.
Yeah courtesans always did that... They get pushed out gradually when you have guards nearby.

one of the things i noticed was that there is no longer quicktimeish events in the cutscenes like being able to give leonardo a hug put bandages on rosa, or dispatching a few guards so you have fewer to deal with in the fight.
love brotherhood, but who didnt get a little nostalgia for AC2 when hearing the venice and florence themes while walking around in the cristina missions
There's actually that time where you have to use your hidden blade to strip off Cesare's armor.
