Top 10 Best Assassin's Creed Games

The Top Ten
1 Assassin's Creed II

This game is the best of all time. In my opinion assassin's creed 1, 2, and brotherhood is better than assassin's creed revelations, 3, and black flag. The reason is because the first 3 assassin's creed game follows the purpose and the role of the assassin which is being stealthy, quiet, and blending with the crowd. The last three assassin's creed games never followed the purpose of the assassins. Ezio is the best assassin's creed character ever. Altair is pretty cool. Connor is biggest moody idiot I have ever seen. I can't believe people actually like him and he is not a true assassin.

Assassin's Creed 2 is the greatest AC game because it shows one of the greatest stories ever told and that of course is Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Ezio was probably the most humane character out of all of the others because unlike Conner or Altair he shows more compassion. This is because the main story takes place when he's 17 and not a full grown adult, he makes mistakes.

He is also a ladies man, a trouble maker, and a good person to those who deserve it. During this time he gets betrayed by one of his father's friends and his two brothers Federico and Petruccio plus his father Giovanni gets hanged. Instead of leaving and getting his sister and mother out of town right away he runs and yells " I'll kill you for what you've done! ". Due to the overwhelming amount of guards he had to flee and took his mother and sister somewhere safe.

I don't have the time to tell the whole story but I'll summarize it, so he got a hidden blade from Leonardo da Vinci, learned how to steal ...more

The story of Assassin's Creed 2 stood out to me the most, probably because it was basically Ezio's origin story. We seen him as he was born, watched him cause trouble as a kid, sneak into his girlfriend's window. And watched as his family was tragically murdered. We saw what drove him, and watched as he went from an angry kid, to master assassin. And of course it was the game that revealed "The Truth". It's actually one of my favorite video game stories.

Assassin's Creed 2 was the best Assassin's Creed Game in my opinion. All the locations you can go to in this game are awesome. The characters are great. The storyline is amazing, it was also one of only 3 games where I got all the achievements on. The only thing that I don't like are the Desmond missions, however, they're in all the games so it doesn't really matter. It would've been good if they put multiplayer games into this game as well.

2 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Black Flag had some of the most memorable characters in any video-game I have ever played. Edward was by far one of the most interesting mains in the entire series, and the emotional attachment I felt for the surrounding cast really immersed me in the game. The world was also one of the most impressive I have ever seen, and I really felt compelled to explore every k nook and cranny of it, and achieve that 100% rating. The pirating and ship mechanics were fun and easy to learn, but difficult to master, and the sense of resource management really improved the overall feel of the game. Definitely the best Assassins Creed title, and one of the best games I have played overall. So enjoyable that after getting almost all the achievements in the Xbox 360 version, I did the same when I bought it on the Xbox one less than a year later.

To best Assassin's Creed game, I do have to give it to AC2, but to my favorite game labeled Assassin's Creed, it would have to be Black Flag. Assassin's Creed II is a game that I loved dearly for it's gameplay and improvements over the first in the series, but Black Flag was more than an Assassin's Creed game, it is a pirate game, Assassin's Creed 4 is my favorite for it's stunning naval battles. Assassin's Creed 4 is a game where you were basically a pirate ninja(assassin), two things being debated as the better than one another for longer than the Assassin's Creed name has been a game series. This game deserves 2nd place only because Assassin's Creed II is better at being Assassin's Creed.

Assassin's creed 4 deserves the second place. I have played all of the assassin's creed games and this one is one of my favourites after Assassin's creed II. But I do think it has to be in a higher rank than Assassin's creed I, because the gameplay was better and the character was WAY better than in AC3. Moreover, this game is not repetitive at all. The missions all are different and have unique objectives proper to them; which means that it had a great story and a WONDERFUL ending. Plus, the pirate combination with assassin made my it be a bit different han the other games.

I've never had the opportunity to play this specific game but with all the positive praise and pro-endorsement that this game has received from the numerous users commenting, I'd have to say that this is probably the best one out of bunch of them! This is a great game with so many things to do that you'll be easily persuaded to think that this is the best game by far and completely forget that the other Assassin's Creed games exist! If there was one game on this earth that could be mistaken for a trans-dimensional conduit to Our Almighty God, this IS the game! 10/10

3 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

This is my absolute favourite game of all time. AC 2 got me into the franchise and Revelations was the 1st one I bought for myself. But, I've always loved Brotherhood. Great story, Ezio looks the best in my opinion, awesome selection of outfits, such as Altaïr's outfit which is my favorite in the series, kill streaks, crossbows and more assassins. Played through it about 16 times and know nearly all the lines off by heart. Still not bored with it. Thank you Ubisoft

Best AC game there is. I played both AC II and this is the more polished and sanded version of II. In AC2 it's way too easy to be OP, and there is still the damned stupid countryside travel. But this! This is polished. Just one city. Good storyline, as always for the first few AC games. And you actually have to try.

This was my favourite in terms of gameplay. The weapons in Assassin's Creed III felt like they all had a strong purpose but I still overall preferred Brotherhood. The crossbow was OP :)

Even though this game had lots of weapon variety and tons of things to do, the environment always felt the same and the music was usually too depressing. That was the only thing I didn't like.

Brotherhood is just a AMAZING game! It is a much improved version of the legendary Assassin's Creed II with awesome combat and the graphics are excellent! I love the puzzles that make you think but the only downside is the campaign was a little too short.

4 Assassin's Creed III

There are so many people that don't like ac3 because of the "fact" that Connor only kills the British and so he's killing his own people. First of all he's only half British. Secondly most Americans who fought during the war were British and no one is saying jack about that. Third he was raised by native Americans so he does not have a sense of his British self. Fourth Connor actually kills people on both sides of the conflict. Fifth most people who are posting these comments are trying to make themselves sound smart and are actually making themselves sound really stupid. And lastly it's a game! Enjoy it for what it is!

I like this game because all of the games made before this has not have features like this such as the rear of the horse, a lot of weapons that we can carry, although this game has the fastest parkour and free run is amazing, we control two protagonists such as Haytham and then Conner, and the story line of the game in very good. I think Conner is the best assassin after Ezio auditore, because all the assassins creed games have mature assassins but this game has a young assassin "Conner". I believe that Conner did not used his mind a lot because he killed charles lee, haytham kenway, his friend etc. But best game of the series.Enjoy!

I have been a huge fan of AC since the first one came out, YEARS ago. Like most people, I LOVED AC2, it had everything you wanted as far as upgrades from AC1. By the end of 2 I was so excited to see what new and exciting time period they would bring us to next...and then came Brotherhood, which while a great game was not what I was hoping for...then again with Revelations. So when AC3 finally took us to a brand new place, with a brand new character I became immediately engrossed. Too this day, AC3 was by far my favorite AC gaming experience.

I know people knock on Conner, but I cannot understand why. He had a great backstory and a lot of development for a video game storyline. I also don't get why people complain about killing the British. Wake up people, the British did some bad back in the day. Nobody complained when William Wallace murdered them in Braveheart. I actually found it refreshing since in the four previous AC games we mostly killed our run of the mill city ...more

Best game in my opinion, I feel that combat in this game is superior to it's predecessors and successors (unity's was bland and repetitive). The story line was amazing (plus I'm British and I wasn't upset about killing ted coats but I did prefer fighting colonials :D) also I like that it included the naval combat whilst not being the main focus of the game (black flag grew tiresome with it naval theme). One of my favorite elements was the homestead, I liked the idea of building your own "village" from the ground up unlike AC 2 where you inherit a pre existing one but upgrade it over time. Another thing was the bayoneted muskets, one of my all time favorite weapons (which to my horror was left out of ac unity). Another thing I enjoyed was the way to make money, I found trading things from tea and furniture to weapons a nice addition. Thus I would place this game as the greatest assassins creed of all time.

5 Assassin's Creed: Revelations

There was a time when I thought nothing could get better than AC II. But Revelations totally changed my mind. I am not really fond of too much of killing in games, but Revelations shows Ezio's true character.
There was a time I despised Altair. I thought his story was way too bad. I hated AC I. But when I saw his life story I came to love the character, and a new respect developed in me. The tragedy between him and Abbas moved me. Now I come to understand why he is called the greatest Assassin.
Desmond's story was quite sparse and, in my opinion, his "journeys" on the Animus Island was quite boring. But overall, the game was excellent.

There is not a single game that I didn't fall in love in the series but visually and story-wise, Revelations is the most amazing. This game has the most insane graphic details ever. Decorations on buildings, clothing, etc. It was set in ISTANBUL, maybe the most beautiful city in the world. Every screen, whether a demo, a mission, or a random point is like a masterpiece classic painting. I love the games in America and Carribean, too but (accurately) they lacked the incredible architecture of Europe, so they had to look a bit plain despite they were newer games. The Ezio-Altair connection, and the ending were magical.

The Assassin Creed Revelation is the best game of assassin creed I have ever done. It has good story good attacks and better story than assassin creed 2 and Brother Hood. I think the black flag should be on first and this one should be on second place.

Revelations was my fourth favorite game. It did everything right unity did wrong. The game was actually fun and possible even without multiplayer. And the assassins you got to train and fight with were great AI but not so personality wise. This game bridged over what was missing in altairs and ezios path. And it had my favorite game weapon ever: The Hookblade!

6 Assassin's Creed

This one's simply more of a work of art, while the others are a bit typical. The deliberately poor cinematography made the atmosphere awesome, the writing was the best, abstergo was actually scary in this one, the game play defiantly had it's lows but the high's were the highest in the series and this game more than any of the others actually expected you to have a brain. I still love the others and Ezio is still my favourite character but AC1 is still my favourite game. Although Black Flag came disturbingly close.

This game is plain and simple one of those that you know are going to have a certain effect on your gaming experience ever since you start playing it. An utterly positive one at that. I believe Altaïr is one of the best developed characters and the in-game world feels so organic and real you can almost feel your instant freedom. I will always be amazed by this game, it's a shame I can't say the same about the later ones, though.

The best! Why because of the story much better than ac2 and templars real motive to create a new world was only specified in great detail in this game. Truly amazing best atmosphere best story best assassin in my opinion is altair the only con is repetitive gameplay otherwise everything is top notch

The overall gameplay may have been improved as they added sequels to the franchise, but that is to be expected; and yet, the first game will always be the best for me. It's the one that started it all; it is a classic and no one can beat Altair.

7 Assassin's Creed Origins

This is the latest game of the series. Though it's too good. It's far better than the others. The graphics is awesome(can't differentiate between reality and this) and the fighting is the best, the camera always stays behind the person so, the fight is more strong and fun. The Eagle vision is much better than the others which shows the path better. And the slow motion while jumping off a tree while killing a person is damn good! I bet this is the best assassin's creed entry in the franchise's lifetime.

I was mindblown for the first 2 hours of gameplay in this game. It obviously has the best gameplay and graphics, though other AC games have had better storylines. It has such a low ranking because it's a new game. The only fault I found in the game was that it had way too many side quests and collectibles, which might get a bit tedious if u are a perfectionist like me, and also keeps you away from the main story missions. Combat and travel is amazing and graphics is top notch

The Best I've ever played. This is a new Creed, a perfect evolution of everything that has come before and even has a new modern day element that means you might just care what happens next. Can it be beaten? I don't think so

They took on some new stuff with this game and I like that about it. The movement doesn't feel as fixed. But I still like playing the older versions because it's such throwback.

8 Assassin's Creed Rogue

Unlike the others Assassin's Creed, Rogue is the one which is more in "grey". There is no white Assassin and black Templars. Seriously since the beginning, the Templars were presented to us like the "Bad Guys". They were evil and manipulative and they wanted to be the masters of Earth! (You could almost do a machiavelic laugh after all the sentences of the Templars). But with Rogue, things are presented differently. And you really are into the character and the story. Also even if it's an "old generation" game, the places are beautiful, I really enjoyed travel into this whole world.

Not too long ago, I always believed the Assassins were the good guys. You play as them and the Templars, especially the Borgia, were shown as evil and power hungry. After playing Rogue though my opinion completely changed. I would now rather be a Templar than Assassin and, with the exception of the Renaissance and Carribean rites, I look at the Templars in a completely different way in the old games now. Second favourite and most influential storyline because of this, as well as everything else about it

The fact that we get to see, for once, both sides of the Templar/Assassin war is one of the reasons I love this game so much.This is at the very top of my favorite Assassin's Creed games and I have no problems with replaying it once I've finished.

What really gets me about it is the character development to be found in Shay. He starts off as brash, bold, and young, yet by the end I can literally feel my heart being ripped out when he is forced to kill his childhood best friend. To me, it's one of the best games.

Assassin's Creed Rogue was the only assassin's creed game that I truly like. In real life, the templars were a force of monastics who gave up their lives in order to fight extremists who were trying to take out people travelling to Israel, extremists like modern day Isis. I think that this take on assassins creed does the Templars more justice.

9 Assassin's Creed Unity

I love the Assassin's Creed series and thus far I believe Unity is the pinnacle of the series. Yeah it had a buggy launch (though most of my personal playing time was completely devoid of bugs), but once the patches were released and the game was expanded with the free Dead Kings DLC, there's no way this game could come of as anything short of amazing. Even after the release of the stellar Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Unity's Arno still holds the title for the series most customizable protagonist. The experience points ranking system, skill acquisition, upgradeable gear and weapons, and co-op missions were unprecedented and revolutionary for the series. Even its challenging combat system was the series best in my opinion. Unity just doesn't get enough credit.

Though botched PC version launches are fairly common this generation, it's unfortunate that Unity's reputation and accomplishments often go unnoticed and unappreciated due to this version buggy launch.

This is the best AC game environment I have ever seen. Perhaps this is the best gaming environment on the planet! The buildings are in ratio 1:1 as compared to real life, which makes it really amazing. There isn't a more realistic graphics in games. Just go ahead and search in YouTube. And you shall know what I am talking.

I wouldn't be surprised if this game makes it to the top 10 even before it has been released.

My favorite AC game. I hate how people complain about this game being buggy. Most of the glitches have been fixed by now. The character customization is easily the best thing about this game. The setting was also one of the best. Paris is the most beautiful setting. I actually liked Arno a lot. The combat sucks until you get a weapon with max damage then it is the best. I love how this game forces u to use stealth. There is not enough stealth in the other games(black flag) to make you feel like an assassin the way you do in Unity.

Even though this games was plagued with glitches upon release, the subsequent patches resolved all the issues. The environments are astounding and the mechanics are a joy. To top it all, there is a huge arsenal of weapons and a large collection of equipment and outfits.

I highly recommend AC: Unity.

10 Assassin's Creed Syndicate

Added a lot of new features like trains, carriages and a rope launcher. Liked the idea of boroughs being taken over, but it was similar to some of the previous game (like the naval bases in Black Flag). Some of the challenges are pretty hard, and the carriage driving feels really out of place in some times. Liked the game overall, but still needed to improve some things

Jacob and Evie Frye might be ones of my favorite protagonists of all time. Victorian London is the perfect playground with plenty of content and fun. Assassin's Creed Syndicate includes the best missions of the series and does everything better than Unity. Who would have expected that?

Splendid graphics. New inclusion of female character. Free flow style of how to deal with situations. Kind of a bland story, as it is just a remake of Brotherhood with Starrick in place of the Borgia. Music is good in some places, but sometimes (I am a fellow violinist) the music just feels not

One of the best Assassin's Creed games! I think Jacob is better than Evie because he's more relatable. And to anyone complaining about how Evie only has 25% of missions especially for her needs to realize that Jacob also only has 25% of missions especially for HIM. The other 50% is for EITHER OF THEM, and there is some other missions for ANOTHER FEMALE CHARACTER, Lydia.

Stop complaining about Evie!

The Contenders
11 Assassin's Creed Odyssey

I've played every assassin's creed game and in my opinion, Origins is the best with the biggest map, the best graphics, and the most intricate missions. I've seen gameplay and the trailer for Odyssey and believe it will be amazing. I fit comes anywhere near Origins I will be outstanding.

Played the game from beginning to end. In a time in my life where I hardly ever finish games anymore. Great graphics and gameplay. The main story was good not the best, but the side missions were entertaining. Overall I've been addicted to this game with 0ver 100 hours, and still wanting more.

I think it is the best becuase you get thrown off the mountain by your father that turns out to be your step-father and in this one you get to fight a literal minotaur! also I really like how you get hunted by this cult and one of them turned out to be your sister that also got thrown off. a really nice game if you ask me (also I really like how you can do a lot of damage in the game)

Playing in the Greek world by travelling, exploring, killing cultists, and doing whatever feels really smooth and nice. It's a great Assassin's Creed game, in my opinion.

12 Assassin's Creed III: Liberation

This game is much better than Altair Chronicles and Bloodlines. It's not fair to compare to PS3 entries but this is actually a pretty good game if you remember it's a vita game. I was actually impressed with the gameplay.
Note -The multiplayer is terrible and there was a glitch that corrupted save files. Thankfully the glitch has been patched. Be sure to start a new game after patching.

I have played this game many times. It is the best game for a PC gamer. I got liberation on a side road stall but it turned out to be good game. Assassin's Creed III does not deserve this place.

The worst game in the world I've ever played.

Should be ranked higher, this game rocks!

13 Assassin's Creed Valhalla

This is by far the 2nd best game in the series I really really love it! 5 stars!

14 Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines

This game has good story and timeline but the gameplay isn't so good.

Ok story line, terrible graphics, terrible gameplay. If Altiar could do some combos, this game would be better.

This game is great! It fully shows altair story

Never heard of it

15 Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles

This seriously must the last one on this list.
I can't believe that some people even voted for this, leaving out all the other good ones.

16 Assassin's Creed II: Discovery

Actually not that bad

17 Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry

A story driven game which begs the player to focus on what is being told.

18 Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China
19 Assassin's Creed Rebellion
20 Assassin's Creed Identity
21 Assassin's Creed: Pirates

One thing I hate in Assassin's creed pirates is we can't walk on land.

Really crap just shoot and take down boats!

The game has a interesting story. The story of Alonzo shows various ups and downs. The game excites u and thriils u.the graphics of game are better than any other assassin's creed mobile game.

Lamest game ever
