It’s time to take a look back at Ubisoft’s flagship franchise and see which entries did what the best.
AC2 brotherhood, next question.
The first one. It was all franchise fatigue after that. edit: Seahawks.. I hate Peyton. And I hate Richard Sherman, but I don't want Peyton to win another superbowl.
lol! yeah after ac2bh...the homie E-Z-0 was the best assassin .....BRONCOS BTW
So the sequel that was released a few years after the first one was already fatigue? I honestly think that's hyperbole especially since 2 pretty much improved on every single aspect of 1. On topic AC is my favorite franchise and I've loved every single one...Revelations had the worst city. I hope they go back to a pretty old time period. Closer to AC1. Superbowl I hope Broncos smash the Seahawks. I'm a hoosier, Peyton did everything for our Colts. Win another one.
AC1 is the worst game of this gen to me. what a scam with all that repetitivity! I bought AC2 because there was a price cut on it long after the release just to give it another chance. I noticed improvement from the garbage first episode but it was still very boring. I hate this series it's so overhyped for nothing. Animation is poor, different character at each episode and they all run climb fight the same way.. I liked the Italian history touch from the AC2 that was all!
AC4 > AC2 >>> all others.
I preferred the original game, first PS3 game I played, loved it, yeah it gotta little boring but it was all new, never played a game like it After that the AC games went downhill after each release, more and more of the same every year
I have to some what agree with abzdine. I was so hyped for the first game only to be given a game that it's so repetitive and the combat was so simplistic. I was so let down. I haven't bothered with any of the other games. Although I am planning on playing Black Flag when I get a ps4. Super Bowl @Mikeslemonade Seahawks don't stand a chance. There offense is terrible. Wilson has been playing average at best. Frankly don't want to see Richard Sherman win. Try winning with class.
assassins creed 3 liberation is the best out of them all
my second...woulda been first if they built it better. it had its problems but the story and main character were spot on.
2 was the best, downhill after that.
For me it was AC2, Ezio was my favourite
Maybe I'm silly.. black flag was #1 cause it wasn't an AC generic game? I was so bored with AC after an hour I gave up, successors followed. I picked up Black Flag cause hardly any RPGs hit launch next gen. Aside from weird Astergo moments, it was great
Gameplay-wise? AC IV. Overall? AC II.
AC2 was the best imo. Story was awesome, and for the time it released, the gameplay was so far beyond anything else.
Assassins Creed 2 was the best in my opinion. I did like Assassins Creed 3 better than Black Flag. I didnt finish 1, Brotherhood and Revelations.
I am one of those odd people that prefer ACIII over the rest. Close to finishing IV now but they did so much right, and just a few things wrong, in III. I like that Conner didn't just put on the robes and suddenly he was an Assassin. He had to train and he had to earn them. ACIII also had the most brutal combat. IV is just a lot of hacking and slashing. It is almost as if a different team developed that part of the game. And the ship combat in IV gets ridiculous when there are 15 boats out there circling everything. They just put too many ships in the game and ruins the thrill of the hunt. However Ubi is developing this mornic habit of making you fight to get to a point in the game and then minute you earn an accolade and get ready to enjoy it the first time they take you out of the game for some ridiculous outside the animus experience. They did this in III the second you earn your Assassins robes and they do this in IV with your first ship capture where you tow it back to your new cove.
I thought AC3 did have a better story than Black Flag. ANd all the boat stuff in Black flag was annoying. I only did 1 underwater segment and it was after I beat the game, there was no reason to go diving. I also thought the combat in AC3 was better as well.
AC2 easily. the protagonist, the gameplay, the setting, the AMAZING musical score. that game stands the test of time it improved across the board over the original. brotherhood is a close second though.
AC Black Flag hands down!!!
AC4>AC2>Broth>Rev> >>>>>>AC1> AC3
AC2 and nothing comes close.
AC2: Brotherhood perfected the AC2 formula and added some cool changes to combat. Wasn't as good as 2 from a narrative perspective, but it was probably superior in terms of gameplay. I'd say Brotherhood comes close to AC2, and wouldn't argue with those who said it was a better game.
Easy AC2 Ezio was a great character in the franchise.
AC2 - Brotherhood - AC4 If AC2 had the smoothness and great controls of AC4 then it'll be unbeatable.
For me the one that really appealed to me in this series is the naval system of 3 and 4 so I'd say for me 4 not 3 mc sucked in AC 3 :)
AC1 was first AC told the story you have to give praise for that without first we not had the franchise. Anyways heres my favoured. AC2 amazing then got bit board till i Bought AC4 there my 2.
Ac4 by far .The naval battles and island setting , deep see diving , makes it a lot better that the rest.( Why wasn't 4 included in the article by the way ... very old.)
Gonna get crucified for this but Revelations was my favourite. Still need to play Black Flag though
AC4 is just AC2's younger, less talented brother.
4 black flag
The first one because it was so new to us, now we know what to expect from the series
Assassins Creed 2, period.
AC2 best overall. AC3 best animations for me (always loved the way Connor moved). AC4 best fighting mechanics. AC4 prettiest. AC4 most freedom. AC4 more things to do. AC4 more rewarding. AC4 has pirates. Enough said.
in my opinion the best assassins creed games without doubt are AC II and AC IV ..
Ac4 and brotherhood are my favorites. The others failed to keep my attention long enough to finish them.
2 and 4 are best. I feel ubi missed a trick with 4 though. The multiplayer could and should have been ship based. The awful multiplayer it does have feels so detached from the actual game.
I just got the platinum for ACIV last night, and I must say I enjoyed this one the most. The team behind this game came up with some really interesting story moments, which continuously caught me off guard. I didn't expect anything surprising from an AC game, but they really came up with some cool stuff. Just like in inFamous 2, when I got the last trophy I was a little disappointed that it was all over. They really did an excellent job, relatively speaking. I had this serendipitous moment towards the end where it felt like I was playing the original Assassin's Creed. I went through this sequence without a single mistake. I took out guards that were in my way quickly and quietly. I walked past *guards that were within earshot, but not a direct threat. I peaked during that mission with the massive church. It made going back and getting 100% sync surprisingly a breeze. It felt good.
the first one, after that just clones.
Brotherhood is the best one I love the ending
AC 2 was my favourite. For the ending and for the music
The original and Black Flag one are both great in their own respects, though I wouldn't even put them in the same category.
AC2 by a huge margin hands down.
