The Man Cave Cinema writes; Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series has long been controversial. The first game attracted many fans with its intriguing plot, as well as its innovative free-running mechanics, while simultaneously discouraging others with its repetitive gameplay. Assassin's Creed II greatly improved on the concept, adding a lot of completionist-oriented goals and more weapon choices for flexible play. Brotherhood was a sharper refinement of AC2's best features, but then Revelations stretched our love for Ezio too thin with a rehash that only added some unnecessary and sometimes annoying features. Assassin's Creed III finally gave us a new Assassin protagonist and a whole new era for the setting, but not a lot of the actual game was truly new, and it failed to really win over fans who had grown bored with the yearly releases.
