Now that the Assassin’s Creed series is taking a break before returning with a new entry in 2017, it is certainly time to look back at the entire Assassin’s Creed series of games. Since the original Assassin’s Creed was released in 2007, nine other core games have been released since then.
But which of these games is the best and which the worst? This is a matter of passionate debate for sure, as the series has been played and loved by millions. And while each of these games has its merits, in the end, only one can be the best. So here follows a list of the Assassin’s Creed games, ranked from worst to best.
9. Assassin’s Creed
This is the game that started a revolution. It introduced us to a world of Templars and Assassins, the nifty time-travelling machine known as the Animus and to the characters of Altair the assassin and the bartender Desmond. You know, the guy whose DNA can lead the Templars (or Assassins) to a secret involving lost civilizations and a certain very powerful object known as the Apple.
But no matter how beautifully this game recreated history (the time of the Crusades, no less), it still suffered from repetitive gameplay. Remember having to sit on a bench to eavesdrop on conversations about your assassination targets?
Assassin’s Creed I also pales in comparison to its glorious sequel, which is a far superior game, making the original look like a tech demo at times. But still, this game deserves its place in video game history.
