As a historian AND gamer, I more than approve this article good sir.

Well, three historical and one scientific inaccuracy, but better than the usual opinion pieces we see.

if you hadn't noticed at the begining of the game when you start it up, the game states,"this is a work of fiction done by people of various faiths and backgrounds, based on actual historical events". That right there is cause to not quote anything from this game as if it is factual.
And BTW if you are going to try to reference video games for a term paper, unless its about graphic design or something you should prob just ask for your tuition money back because your wasting it trying to educate yourself.

People know that, but this is a way to point out how it is inaccurate. No one claimed it was accurate. The bit about referencing the game in a paper is written tongue in cheek and not actualy thinking anyone would do as such.

Hurray for journalism.

This article is valuable because if there is one thing people less talented than game developers do too little it is ripping into perceived issues in titles.

This agile criticism is needed despite it being a game and regardless of the developers openly acknowledging the fictionalization from the very onset...every time you boot up.

To be fair, the series does hide this well by pretending that history was made up by the templars.

If you actually use a video game to write a term paper, you deserve what you get, grade wise...
