If I only had 60 seconds to describe all of the Assassins Creed games
Q: As someone who has only played the first 2 games can someone tell me how the series has faired? I know at some point there was huge controversy over the quality of some of the releases but I've heard the last two (origins & odyssey i believe?) are much better. Can anyone give me a quick rundown of the games?
AC 1: Cool, but kind of repetitive.
AC 2: Best of the franchise.
AC Brotherhood: Just giving you more of what you liked about AC 2, but with more stuff.
AC Revelations: Just giving you more of what you liked about AC Brotherhood, but with even more stuff to the point that you're left scratching your head.
AC 3: We honestly don't know where we're going with this, but we're just throwing a bunch of stuff out there and see if any of it sticks.
AC Black Flag: You know that ONE gaming mechanic that everyone liked from AC 3? Yeah? Well, let's build an entire game around that and call it a day.
AC Rogue: Just giving you more of what you liked about AC Black Flag, but with more boring.
AC Unity: The bastard, red-headed French cousin of the AC series.
AC Syndicate: The drunk, limey cousin of the AC series. Still, way better than the French one.
AC Chronicles China, India and Russia: What is this Super Mario crap?!
AC Origins: Let's make a huge game about ancient Egypt that has absolutely nothing to do with Assassins Creed, but we'll throw in an two minute cut scene at the end to justify calling it one.
AC Odyssey: Let's make a monstrously epic, RPG-lite game just like AC Origins, but instead, this one will be based around everything and anything that has to do with ancient Greece. A secret cult, mythological creatures, political intrigue, trireme battles, Spartan vs. Athenian wars, everything! What do we call it? Uh, I don't know- how about "Homer's Iliad?" No? Maybe: "Alexio's Odyssey?" No? Well, what about if we just write "Assassin's Creed" on the cover? Yeah? Okay, let's do that then.
