9. Assassin’s Creed III
This Assassin’s Creed game takes place during the American Revolution. The main character is a native American named Connor, who goes from crossing paths with revolutionary general Charles Lee to directing the battle of Bunker Hill (no matter how unlikely that is, though).
This is probably the Assassin’s Creed game that feels more like a history lesson, and the story never picks up. It doesn’t help that Connor is the sort of guy who would score zero points in the charisma department – he’s certainly no Ezio Auditore.
But still, its opening chapter, which features Connor’s father (an English Templar known as Haytham) is quite engaging, and the naval combat is exciting and became a core component of that Assassin’s Creed game with pirates (you know, part IV).
