Assassin's Creed jumped on the scene and threw us all for a wild ride and a helluva mind fuck. SPOILER ALERT if you did not finish AC1 coming up. It turns out that you are not an assassin, but a direct relative of a family of assassins, and this company is using you to gain these relics, called Pieces of Eden, which have popped up throughout history during major events, often held by major historical figures. Got it? Now, the game was a smash hit, though critics said it had some flaws, which it did. Was it possible for Ubisoft to improve on an already top selling franchise? You bet your sweet renaissance ass."
