From the moment it first touched down on Xbox 360, the Assassin’s Creed series has been at the forefront of cutting-edge action stealth gameplay. From Altair’s journeys through Crusade-era Syria, to the tale of Renaissance-man Ezio Auditore stretching across three epic titles, the series has also allowed us to experience history like never before. After the resounding success of Ezio’s plotline, Ubisoft are looking to bring main protagonist Desmond’s story to a close also with Assassin’s Creed III.
Have they managed to bring this most epic of series to a satisfying close? Has the departure of fan-favourite Ezio spelled doom for the franchise?
