As one of Ubisoft’s most popular series, The Assassin’s Creed has sold over 1 million copies per game. It’s a thrilling series that will make you want to play on… and on…and on.

In the first AC you are play as a regular guy, Desmond Miles, and find yourself kidnapped by a team of assassins who want you to fight in a war against their enemies, The Templars. While you play as Desmond you will be put into a machine, which allows you to explore your ancestor’s lives through your memory fragments. Through AC 1 you are exploring the life of your ancestor who was an assassin, Altair. Altair is known from your second ancestor’s life as being the great master.

The assassin from AC 2, AC Brotherhood and AC Revelations is the apprentice to Altair. He is Ezio Auditore Da Firenze. As you are still Desmond Miles, but fighting in this war you need to know every one of your ancestors to learn their skills and how to fight and kill.

In AC 1 Altair is an arrogant assassin, who thinks he is better than everyone else. He is punished but then sent on missions to redeem himself… but there is a bigger mystery that lies beyond. AC 2 focuses on the life of Ezio, how he became an assassin and how he began killing Templars at age 17. In AC Brotherhood you are still Desmond as Ezio, but you are building your brotherhood in Rome and making new team mates who fight for your cause.

In the most recent game, AC Revelations, you are Desmond but there’s a twist: he is in a coma and he is stuck in his own mind, continuing the final adventure of Ezio. This time as Ezio, he is discovering more about the assassins’ history and about Altair.

The game is also based upon actual religion, history and beliefs. You will encounter many historical figures such as Niccolo Machiavelli and Leonardo Da Vinci. At the same time you’ll discover mysterious artefacts containing the history of Altair and the first civilisation with Adam and Eve. Will you be able to crack the codes and maybe then you may become The Master Assassin?

    Love this series as you know. I think the Ezio serise runs on a bit much. It takes three games one story. Really?!

  9. Florian says:

    I think this is spot on, but I do agree with Kane that it is a bit much. Despite that I really love this game and I play it all the time.
