I started playing the first one a couple years ago and felt like I was just climbing shit all the time and got bored, am I missing out on a great series?  Does the first one suck and the rest are good?  Am I just crazy and the first one was great?

I never played the 1st one but heard that it wasn't very good. I have played AC2 and AC3 and really enjoyed them both. I never played Brotherhood or Revelations. I also plan on getting Black Flag. AC3 I have heard people complain about it, but if you like that time period then you'll enjoy it.

2 is a pretty decent game. Never played any other.

I know what you mean TC, some games feel like that to me. I have only played the 3rd one though, but I loved it. I would say get that one and definitely Black Flag coming out later. Not sure about 1 or 2.

Yes you are missing out. The first one was average. AC2 is amazing (one of my favorite games), Brotherhood was great, Revelations was good, and AC3 was good (has it's ups and downs). You should definitely check them out especially since they have a Assasin's Creed collection available.

Thanks everyone, I think I will check AC2 out and go from there.

The first AC game is one of the most underrated games of the generation. It was an amazing game for what it was supposed to accomplish.

My favourite one has to be AC2. Brotherhood and revelations were ok. AC3 felt like a chore to get through.

Maybe play 2, forget the rest. Incredibly overrated series.

AC 1 had a lot of issues, but 2, Brotherhood and Revelations are all great

I played AC1 for a few hours and got bored. Picked up AC2 a few years later and never looked back, finishing up AC3 now and can say its a series I would definitely recommend.

Played the PSP spinoff of the 1st one, didnt like, story was terrible. The new Pirate game looks cool, plus its nice to see an open world Kingston Jamaica, Coolyfetts mother approves of that. Havana and Nassau are also in there. Should be dope. Dont care for the AC series but playing as a pirate looks really fun.

My top AC is Brotherhood but 2 is definitely worth giving a go.  I never got through 3 but watched the second half online and it wasn't that interesting.  The new one looks pretty cool from what they've shown.  It seems they're going all out with the pirate theme and they didn't rush it out to convienantly come out around a pirates of the caribbean movie so at least they've taken proper time to make the game rather than cash in on another franchise.  It seems like the game world's gonna be pretty big in the new one.

However, if you're going in it for the story then you'll likely not be very happy, as the story really isn't that good.

I find it funny how most people seems to not like the 1st one very much.... that one's always been my favorite. It has the best story in my opinion. If I were you I'd just try and play one of the other ones like everyone else said and just see if it grows on you. Maybe try out the mulitplayer on one of them or something. :)

Just play 1, 2 and 3, don't worry about the others. Then get 4.

Why does AC 3 get so much hate though?? It seems like a cool enviroment to play in.

 Number 2 is definetly worth it Brotherhood ain't bad either but after that the others are forgetable.

The second one is a nice step up from the first. They're pretty good from there on out, though more of the same.
