How is AC2 shit? It's probably the best one. It improved on AC1 in every way and was before the internet directive 2431412/b was created by ware anyone posting on a internet forum must express there hatred for the series every time the game is mentioned . Superb game.

AC4 was great as well.

The only ones I've enjoyed are Black Flag (which was pretty awesome), and I also liked Syndicate. But I haven't tried Rogue yet (I'm hoping it becomes BC on XB1).

The rest just didn't do anything for me.

@silversix_: Sounds like a crappy book then. There are way worse game series in the history of video games than the AC series. Unless is a book on games the cool kids love to hate, will CoD and FIFA feature heavily also?

I have played all main entry Assassin Creed games except for Syndicate (I'll get to it eventually, just got bogged down by huge RPGs). I understand the series has a lot of problems but personally I like them and don't even mind the yearly releases. If games with historical settings were more prevalent then perhaps I would be more critical but as it is they scratch an itch for me.

Here is my ranking:

Assassin's Creed 2 is the best in the series for me. It improved on the first in many ways and it featured a much more involved storyline and interesting main character. It is also free of many tiring and time consuming systems that were added on later instalments.

Black Flag is next. The current times story is barebones at best and did almost nothing to promote the overall plot. However the pirate story, although a bit simple, was enjoyable and a great emfasis was placed on fun.

Revelations was a bit of a surprise for me. After the dissapointment of Brotherhood and a third game with the same character when I wanted to see someone new I played it reluctantly. The new setting, Constantinopole (or Instanbul if you prefer) was different enough from italian cities to feel fresh. The tombs were a nice addition that reminded a bit of Prince of Persia and I even liked the first person puzzle minigame. I only played a little but I was also pleasantly surprised by the multiplayer.

Unity had potential. It didn't reach it but still it gets points for trying. Too much busiwork with side objectives, poor performance, constant crashes and a dissapointing main story dragged the game down. However Paris was simply amazing, one of the best depictions of a city in a videogame. The game also revamped the series mechanics giving it a fresh feel.

Assassin's Creed 3 took the series in a bold new direction and it gets points for that. However it tried to do too many things and was full of tedious activities. Moreover the American revolution setting was kind bland and unitersting for me.

Rogue wasn't a bad game per and I might have ranked it higher but it lives in the shadow of Black Flag. It has almost the same mechanics with a bit of Assassin's Creed 3 thrown in. However the frozen waters of north America aren's so immediately appealing as the Carribean and the main character pales a bit before the charismatic Edwart. If we had gotten this instead of Black Flag I think it would be remembered fondly but as it is, it feels like a slightly worse copycat.

To say Brotherhood was rubbish would be an overstatement and many would justifiably be upset with me. However this one suffers to in comparison to the one that preceded it. We go from the whole of Italy to just one city and from a story spanning years to one over in a couple of months. In many ways it just feels smaller than 2, the same characters badly written compared to the previous game. In other ways it feels too bloated. It introduces mechanics that are time sinks with no real value, like renovating Rome of assembling the Assassin brotherhood. Sadly many of these stuck around for many of the following games.

Liberation gets points for finally letting us play a female assassin. However the game is harmstrang by its mobile origins (first came out on PS Vita) and it feels like they didn't have the A team on this one. It's small and feels cheap at times. Perhaps I'd have appriciated it more if I'd played it on the vita instead of the PC.

Assassin's Creed, the game that started it all, is probably the worst in the series. You can't really fault it for that. The series needed to mature before it reached a good level and that makes it even more impressive how they managed to improve so much on the second game. The first assassin's creed had a simple and boring plot, only the begings of the contemporary storyline that would be much expanded and explored in the games up to Assassin's Creed 3. A lot of its mechanics were not that much fun. As a game it was mediocre, especially compared to the excelent Prince of Persia games that predated it, but given that it spawned such a long series, noone can deny its importance.

Sorry for the wall of text.

Only one I enjoyed was Black Flag because of the sea stuff. Not a fan of the series, I tried but just didn't enjoy the story and don't really like stealth games in general anyways. But it looks like a solid series though as I have friends who are really into them

Surely the Sonic franchise is the biggest shitstain on gaming. A franchise littered with more dogshits that my local park.

Syndicate is sitting on my shelf waiting to be played once I beat The Witcher 3. Liberation glitched out on me and I couldn't finish it and it was not good enough to go back through. And I never picked up Rogue, though I wanted to.

It added some nice mechanics to the series too.

Revelations was a dissapointment though. It added Tower Defense for no reason whatsoever.

I only like Revelations for its setting: Istanbul.

Hmm, well, I've not only played them all (mostly) but 100% them all because for some compelling reason I have to so no matter how bored i get:

Best to worst

- AC2 - Awesome character, awesome music, ok story, start of open world for AC, added stores and upgrades

- AC4 - Awesome boating, Shanties, ok story, large map, interesting places to visit

- AC2:Revelation - ok story with strange ending but it didn't slack around, game was short but packed

- AC3 - Added new modes of transportation like through trees, and through snow, ok story, first boat stuff

- AC:Syndicate - Finally changed up the combat, but more of the same

- AC:Unity - Basically the same stuff with some new ways to complete missions, graphical bump in crowds

- AC1 - Started off the story, repetitititititive missions, graphics were amazing when first released

- AC2:Brotherhood - Got bored with this one fast, small map, nothing new was added

- AC:Rogue - Skipped this one since I moved up to next gen consoles

The quality downgrade between AC2 and AC4 wasn't much but from AC4 down its a large drop in quality. The story got lost completely in later games once Desmond... you know. Unless the next one actually has major changes, I can't see myself going through that again. They need to focus a lot less on collecting random useless crap like artifacts and glitches and treasure chests which add nothing to the experience.

What about Unity revamping the parkour system. Not only making it prettier to look at, but also making it less clumsy. In the previous games you were always running up stuff or jumping off stuff you didn't want to.

It also added a much needed stealth system in a game series about assassinations.

I'd say those things to me were more noticable and appreciated than a graphical bump in crowds.

Playing Rogue at the moment after having finished Unity and Syndicate and I can still appreciate a lot of graphical stuff in the game, like the draw distance, the water also looks really nice, as well as the skybox and weather effects.

It's gameplay is more like AC4 than say AC: Unity or other Ac games.
