There are so many interesting games in the assassin story line that it would have been impossible to rank them from “worst” to “best”. However, it is quite possible to single out the 5 most spectacular titles.
Every Assassin’s Creed fan has their own favorite and least favorite parts. Someone pays attention to the plot, someone to the protagonists, and someone is only interested in the gameplay component. Depending on this, the player’s personal top is also built. We tried to take into account all these factors, and made our TOP-5 of the best games in the Assassin’s Creed series.
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey
Odyssey follows the new formula for the ultimate RPG created in Origins. She took the basics of role-playing and spun them up to hundreds of turns with the help of an advanced combat system and world exploration. This part of the series also brings back the naval system from Black Flag, which you will definitely need since the map is gigantic and will take dozens of hours to explore.
The opportunity to choose between male and female protagonists was warmly welcomed by society, even though there are some problems with historicity. The plot is also pretty organic – it shows us a beautiful family drama. Yes, it seemed to some too long, but in the end it was undoubtedly worth it. Yes, this part was very different from the original Assassin’s Creed concept. However, that doesn’t change the fact that Odyssey is a fantastic open-world adventure that deserves attention.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
“Valhalla” is called a natural continuation of “The Odyssey” for a reason. The developers took the already tested in the previous part the formula for combining role-playing and combat system and added more interesting interactivity to the game… In addition, the ability to choose the gender of the character has been preserved. However, for some reason, Valhalla still turned out a little better than her “progenitor.”
First of all, Valhalla fixed the gameplay bugs that annoyed many players in the Odyssey. The project schedule remains high. In addition to the usual bird control mechanics developers have added a new settlement development system and updated the combat component of the game. The project will definitely hit both fans of the series (if they endorsed Odyssey) and newbies who just want to play a cool Action-RPG.
We recommend reading the review on Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla to appreciate this game.
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
Brotherhood shouldn’t have fired in all respects, but it did. At first glance, this was supposed to be a “secondary sequel” to Assassin’s Creed 2. But as a result, these expectations were as far from the truth as possible. Brotherhood is a full-fledged open world game that takes the best from its predecessor and made her strongest elements even better.
The events take place immediately after the second part of the game, and players will have a new adventure with Ezio. Recreating the atmosphere and aesthetics of Rome during the Renaissance was something of an interest for the gaming community, especially in 2010. One overlooked feature that Brotherhood introduced was the PvP multiplayer mode. In fact, it turned out much better than many fans remember. It seems that society was simply not ready for this yet.
Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag
Before release, fans trashed the Black Flag concept. Critics did not welcome her either. Assassin’s Creed 3 disappointed many, and gamers weren’t happy that Ubisoft was still sticking to a one-game-a-year strategy. As a result, everyone was wrong. In terms of action and entertainment, Black Flag is the best in the series.
In this game, the developers took the excellent naval combat system from AC3 and turned their brainchild into a huge pirate world with spectacular naval battles. Traveling in the Caribbean looks incredibly attractive. This topic will never get old, as there is always something to discover both on land and at sea. Edward Kenway was also a charismatic protagonist and was well received by the community as he was more of an anti-hero compared to Altair, Ezio and Connor.
Assassin’s creed 2
Despite the fact that Assassin’s Creed 2 was released in 2009, this game is still the best in the series. Yes, it may not have all the innovative game mechanics that appeared in the later parts of the series, but it laid the foundation that made the franchise what it is today. And Ezio Auditore is still the best killer in the franchise.
All unusual gameplay mechanics from the first part have been refined in the same way as the combat aspects of the project. Italy in the 15th and 16th centuries was a refreshingly new location compared to the gray and dirty atmosphere of the first game. Gamers were provided with more unusual weapons and non-standard mechanics, such as a hidden pistol. Ezio’s account of revenge was at the heart of the narrative, but the storyline has been in the spotlight in modern times, leading to a mind-blowing ending that will forever remain in the hearts of fans.
