I really hope you can all forgive my horrible title joke, bad taste? Yes. Worth it? Totally.

Let me just get right down to it. The game captured me very early on and never really loosened it's grip. Perhaps it was the hilarious and charismatic (well, to me at least.) "your sister" joke Ezio told Vieri in the beginning. Maybe it was the fact that this game was also based around beyond 21st century tech and didn't limit itself to the 14th century, thus having the dreaded, gut wrenching "invisible wall". Or maybe the awesome, engaging puzzles, fights, storyline and graphics. This game really does have it all. With another amazing being the fact that I actually care about Ezio, (the main protagonist, and also the character you play as, for those unfamilier with the game.) and a few other characters. I actually really liked how Leonardo Da Vinci made a cameo in the game and actually became a real in depth character (again, to me, maybe not to some.) Which brings me to a good point. You see, this game has what a lot other games really lack, real, in depth characters. Not just easy characters that you can sum up at face value, like the war lovin', big hearted "warriors" you'll find in a few games I won't mention, but characters that actually make you go, "oh gosh darn, an I was really startin' to warm up to that little feller" when they die. That actually give me a reason to pick up the controller and turn on my dusty xbox.
Well, here are some damn pics, as promised. Ezio Obiviously belongs to Ubisoft and not me. I own none of the artwork below.
I guess the tie really does make the man.
