Our rating for Assassin’s Creed games

1 – Assassin’s Creed II (Ezio Auditore Trilogy, 2009-2011)

the first Doctrine killer It was a revolutionary concept with a patchy taste. Its sequel, Soberly baptized Assassin’s Creed II, It was able to exploit all its strengths around the three pillars that still exist today: a completely immersive environment, because it faithfully reproduces (Florence, Venice, the Vatican, etc.); A game that combines stealth and action; Lots of things to do. Ubisoft even allows itself to play with history, repeating events (Pazzi’s plot) and inviting certain characters of that time (Leonardo da Vinci, turned inventor in the service of assassins).

Also, when Assassin’s Creed II We’re out, and we still believe in the super universe imagined by Ubisoft and expressed around a hero: Desmond Miles, able to relive his ancestors thanks to cutting-edge technology (Abstergo). This episode also centers around a charismatic hero: Ezio Auditor was entitled to two more adventures (Fighting the creed of the Brotherhood And the Assassin’s Creed: Revelation), make up a complete trilogy. No other hero has received such extensive treatment.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey he is in Assassin’s Creed Origins what was Assassin’s Creed II for Doctrine killer. Namely: a comprehensive, relentless improvement of well-established norms. Epic Maximizes the capabilities of the new generation licensing formula, inspired by modern RPGs (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt). Some will say it’s not really Assassin’s Creed anymore, but that’s to say forget that the crux of the franchise lies first and foremost in its ability to take us on a journey into an ancient era, with a welcome authenticity (here, ancient Greece). It’s also a true melting pot of everything Ubisoft has been able to imagine in recent years.

Above all, you have to stick to the end Assassin’s Creed OdysseyBecause the content makes you dizzy.

Playable today : PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X.

3 – Assassin’s Creed Origins (2017)

Assassin’s Creed Origins It is the cycle of salvation. After years of tug-of-war, at an ambitious rate of one episode per year, Ubisoft hit the wall head-on. It was therefore necessary for the French company to work on restoring its strong brand image, otherwise it would annoy players more than ever. The developers have chosen a very simple approach: take their time to rethink the foundations. That’s why we had to wait 2 years before playing Assassin’s Creed Origins, which has, above all, its ideal location (Egypt and its magnificent pyramids). Then the real revival began, with mechanics looking more to the RPG side.

Playable today : PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X.

4 – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (2020)

In terms of technical achievement, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla He is the best. Makes sense, because it’s the latest and first to take advantage of the power of the latest consoles (PS5, Xbox Series). However, it does not convince as muchEpic And the assets Because of a certain form of stagnation (the fights remain perfect) and because they are very scattered in their content. Furthermore it, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla It feels like Assassin’s Creed isn’t real anymore, with very few elements reminiscent of the meta-universe and slow-motion writing.

Playable today : PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X.

5 – Assassin’s Creed Unity (2014)

We might be a little chauvinistic to put it Assassin’s Creed Unity Very high in the rankings, since it is a kind of oscillating swing – with which a feeling of fatigue begins to arise. In journalism, Metacritic’s score hasn’t exceeded 70 out of 100 (PC), while its predecessor is still over 80 (still on PC). it prevents, Assassin’s Creed Unity It remains an achievement in its ability to plunge into the heart of the French Revolution. And what is more exciting than walking on the roofs of Notre Dame de Paris? Yes, Ubisoft had eyes bigger than her stomach Assassin’s Creed Unity, and then the countless number of errors. But we really want to be chauvinistic.

Playable today : PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X.

6 – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (2013)

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag It could be an anomaly in the Assassin’s Creed saga, because it’s more of a pirate game. You have to take it that way to appreciate it at its fair value, as the gameplay is centered on naval combat in the Caribbean (the landscapes are absolutely gorgeous). In terms of atmosphere, the golden age of piracy brings an undeniable charm, especially for fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Finally, hero Edward Kenway easily rises to the stage of the most charismatic character Ubisoft has ever imagined.

Playable today : PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X.

7 – Assassin’s Creed III (2012)

Assassin’s Creed III Suffers from the franchise of the Ezio Auditore trilogy. If it remains a successful experiment overall in 2013, it’s not the one we remember most when preparing the balance sheet. As a bonus, it was the episode that eliminated the concept of Desmond Miles’ meta story – the hero of the day who dies at the end (a hell of a twist). Note that we play Conor Kenway, grandson of Edward Kenway, the main character ofAssassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and another ancestor of Desmond Miles. That’s when Ubisoft missed a bit: so the fourth installment goes way back in time than the third, while staying focused on the supposedly-dead hero of the present (Desmond Miles).

Playable today : PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X.

8 – Assassin’s Creed (2007)

It’s kind of cruel to put first Doctrine killer Too low in the rankings. Without him, Ubisoft would not be what it is today. However, it is ultimately just a draft of the glowing Assassin’s Creed IIWhich exceeds the recipe with much tastier ingredients. great concern ofDoctrine killer ? Very repetitive gameplay, which consists of killing targets by collecting some clues during the investigation. From one goal to another, we get the impression that we are always doing the same thing and there is no longer that feeling of freedom that allows us to breathe.

Playable today : PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.

9- Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (2015)

whether Assassin’s Creed Unity The fall of the old formula has begun, Guild Assassin’s Creedy Take charge of delivering the hit. However, he had an argument to make: We play twins (a woman, a man), in the city of London marked by the Industrial Revolution. We move from one to the other according to the tasks. On the other hand, this novelty does not succeed in hiding the lack of novelty in the overall structure of the game. It was also released in 2015, a year which saw major titles like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt where blood borne. In short, it’s time to evolve.

Playable today : PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.

10 – Assassin’s Creed The Movie (2016)

Without a doubt, one of the worst movies adapted from a video game story, where Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard exchange lovers’ baffled looks in a vile pose. There’s really nothing to salvage in this movie, and it’s too dangerous to turn into booze. Let’s hope the TV series, planned for Netflix, honors the gaming world.
