Three Assassin's Creed Game Reviews

by - Friday, February 01, 2019

As I mentioned over the winter break, I got a lot of Steam games, and the majority of those games happened to be from the Assassin's Creed franchise. I already had the first two games (Assassin's Creed and 2), so I thought I'd finish off my collection by getting the rest of the games. So far I've played three of them, and here are my three quick game reviews.

Assassin's Creed 3 
Assassin's Creed 3 is the end of the Desmond Trilogy, which focuses on Desmond Miles, a bartender who finds out he is the descendant of multiple Assassins, including Altair Ibn La'ahad from the first game, Ezio Auditore da Firenze from 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations, and this game focuses on two very different aspects. The first half of the game (aka the intro) focuses on Haytham Kenway, a Templar who sails into colonial Boston, and his goal is to eliminate Edward Braddock with the help of a Native American woman named Ziio all while trying to figure out the secret of the strange amulet he was handed in London. The latter half of this game focuses on Haytham and Ziio's son, nicknamed Connor but his real name is Ratonhnhaké:ton. Connor is an Assassin, unlike his father, because he believed that his father's friend, Charles Lee, was responsible for the death of his mother, and the game eventually leads to Connor assassinating his own father. I'm still playing as Haytham, and the only gripe I have about this game is how long this intro is.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
Brotherhood continues where Assassin's Creed 2 left off, after Ezio defeats Rodrigo Borgia but does not kill him. This game, like the previous game, takes place in Italy, in Rome and Ezio's main goal in this game is to kill Rodrigo Borgia and his son, Cesare while trying to rescue Caterina Sforza, the countess of Forli. You get to team up with several characters you met in the previous game, including La Volpe and Bartomeleo.

Assasssin's Creed Syndicate
Syndicate takes place in industrial London and this game puts a new twist on the previous Assassin's Creed games because you get to choose whom to play. The new main characters are Jacob and Evie Frye, twin Assassins who wish to reclaim London from the Templars. What I like about this game is that you get to drive carriages, and recruit Rooks to fight for you, although I am stuck on freeing Nigel because you can't kill any of the policemen but they can hurt and kill you (which is totally unfair).

Have you played Assassin's Creed before?
