Assassin’s Creed Chronicles (2015)

While some fans appreciate the unique shift in tone, the Chronicles series falls short in terms of gameplay, optimization, and graphics.

Assassin’s Creed (2007)

Despite its nostalgic appeal, the original Assassin’s Creed suffers from repetitive gameplay and a shallow storyline compared to its successors.

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation (2012)

Although introducing the series first female protagonist, Liberation offers little else to make it stand out, as the main game, Assassin’s Creed 3, surpasses it.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (2011)

While boasting a great storyline, Revelations fails to offer anything new in terms of gameplay, with a disappointing Tower Defense minigame.

Assassin’s Creed III (2012)

Despite its attempts to innovate with a unique narrative structure, Assassin’s Creed 3 disappoints with pacing issues and a buggy release, yet the exploration and ship combat are commendable.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue (2014)

Gameplay-wise, Rogue closely resembles Assassin’s Creed IV, but its story of a protagonist turned Templar adds a fresh twist to the series.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (2015)

With a stunning open world set in 19th century London, Syndicate introduces playable male and female protagonists and showcases the franchise’s potential for greatness.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)

Offering a vast and beautiful open world in ancient Greece, Odyssey refines the RPG formula introduced in Origins, although it divides fans due to its departure from the traditional Assassin’s Creed experience.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (2020)

The latest installment in the series, Valhalla attempts to strike a balance between stealth mechanics and RPG elements, delivering a captivating story and a richly detailed world. See our review.

Assassin’s Creed Unity (2014)

Despite its troubled launch, Unity impresses with its stunning visuals and improved gameplay mechanics, reminding players why parkouring through the world is so enjoyable.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (2010)

Offering improved elements from the previous game, Brotherhood stands as a shining example of the franchise’s success, combining engaging gameplay and an intriguing storyline.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (2013)

Surprising fans with its exceptional gameplay and Caribbean setting, Black Flag reignited the love for the original Assassin’s Creed formula, delivering a memorable experience.

Assassin’s Creed Origins (2017)

The game that revolutionized the series, Origins introduces RPG mechanics, a beautifully portrayed Egypt, and endless choices for players, setting new standards for Assassin’s Creed.

The Assassin’s Creed series has seen highs and lows, with captivating narratives and disappointing releases. Each game leaves its mark, contributing to the rich tapestry of the franchise. Whether you prefer stealth or RPG mechanics, there’s an Assassin’s Creed game for every fan.
