The Top Ten

1 Assassin's Creed II

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 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

Assassin's creed 1 was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Assassin's creed Brotherhood was also good, but it hadn't changed much from its predecessor, Assassin's creed 2. This game completely evolved the series and was honestly the best game in my opinion.

Absolutely number one

2 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

The scenery was beautiful and the storyline was engaging and interesting. I loved Edward because he mixed pirates and assassins, two of the most completely different groups. I enjoyed the amount of people that Edward met that were once alive during the Golden Age of Piracy (Blackbeard, Charles Vane, Calico Jack, Anne Bonny, etc. ) The naval warfare and traveling makes this game absolutely different than others. the only thing that bothered me about this game was the amount of eavesdrop missions.

What's not to like assassins and pirates two of my favourite things collide assassins creed 3 really step up to its expectations and I think that black flag would be better plus you ride a ship like assasins creed 3. Black flag should one of the game of the years contenders because the multiplayer was awesome and plus the guy is somewhere related to Connors I can't wait for the fifth one

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.

For me this is the best AC game so far, because it is a big wide playing ground, a lot of secret hideouts, nog only running around and fighting npc's but also old pirate ship fightings

3 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Brotherhood is just a AMAZING game! It is a muchly improved version of the legendary Assassins 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.

Improved Assassins Creed 2. That's all you need to know

Out of the ones that I played hours on after 100%, even know I would of play more black flag, Brotherhood is the most memorable

Brotherhood is basically Assassins Creed 2 but with more things like assassins and buying taking away the villages from bougier (I think that is the name but can't remember). Vote for this because Assassins Creed 2 was great but Brotherhood is better!

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! - tackler90210

I have never heard people say that about Connor. All I have heard we're things like: Connor is a bad character, Connor is bland or other things like that. (I personally think he's a good character and a total badass). - RogerMcBaloney

The fact that it's in America's greatest time in history it's also a fact that it gives us a story that we as Americans or wherever I'm not trying to be racist or anything by the way, should honor this game for supporting the best victory for we patriots and plus CONNER IS A BAD ASS supporting native Americans, also 10 out of 10 graphics

Mos fun gameplay in my opinion!

My favorite game 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.

My favourite

Revelations is amazing! It shows Altair's life from when he was 26 to his death at age 92.

This game had everything in it, brilliant story mode, Multiplayer is way more fun than Brotherhoods ;) and ends the game with a great ending, but not as good as Brotherhoods... -_-

I AC!

In my point of view Assassin's creed Revelations must be at at least top 3 because of the amazing storyline and smooth gameplay but still has gliches but as we know it was released in 2011.

6 Assassin's Creed

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.

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.

Laugh out loud it was the first Assassins Creed and the best one ever! I would honestly choose Altaïr over Ezio any day! He is a way better climber and looks cooler. This game is just overall FUN

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

7 Assassin's Creed: Rogue

Really good game. Playing as an Assassin turned Templar is very interesting and allows the player to say both sides of the coin so to speak. This game completely changes your perception on the series. Everything about this game was on point. Great gameplay, beautiful map, engaging story and great characters. - RogerMcBaloney

It has really fun gameplay and seems to have the biggest world maps compared to the other AC's. It is fun to play as Shay, and I just love the silenced rifle, or whatever it's called. The gameplay is really nice. Overall, to my opinion, it should be best in the series.

Awesomes game, great twist with Shay Cormac turning from an Assassin into their most dreaded enemy... a Templar. After seeing the mass destruction the Assassins did to Lisbon, Portugal, I definitely understood and agreed with Shay's decision. Sailing the ship was fun enough. My top 4 assassins creed games would go:

1. ROGUE
2. AC2
3. ODESSY
4. ORIGINS

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

8 Assassin's Creed: Unity

I like the realistic graphics one of my favourite how about you

HOW IS THIS BETTER THAN ORIGINS

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.

Assassin's creed unity is awesome and you have cool missions and cool friends to play with and you have got a team to manage and they help each other and the city is like so alive, it's awesome.

9 Assassins Creed: Origins

It should be on 2

This should be way further on the list

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.

Its should in top 5

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

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

This game is one of the best that is developed by ubisoft and made the franchise to extend with many more beautiful features and such games are needed and suitable for 8th gen consoles.

Assassins creed syndicate should be at in at least the top 5 among the best. It introduces gangs that can follow you which is a new feature in the franchise. This game was also by far the funniest with the most humor.

The Contenders

11 Assassin's Creed Odyssey

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.

This game is boss

Should be higher this is a great game

Best assassins creed by a country mile!

12 Assassins Creed III Liberation

Better than 3 - lukemcnamara72

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.

The reason I voted for this is because it came out at the same time as AC3 but it was better in my mind and it was rerelease when AC4 black flag came out but that version change the lore and story a bit and finally the stealth mechanics were the best in this game

Liberation doesn't deserves this place

13 Assassin's Creed: Ezio Collection

This should be way higher up. Ezio is the coolest, and most badass Assassin's creed character.

Wait does this count? - lukemcnamara72

This should be number one. It has Assassin's Creed 2 in it but with one major improvement : BETTER GRAPHICS. It's very nostalgic. The entire Ezio trilogy but with a graphic improvement. Should definitely be number one. It has Ezio in it he his the greatest assassin ever. by the way check out another one of Ubisoft's great games Ghost Recon Wildlands.

I didn't played it but every assassin game is best if ezio is protagonist

14 Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines

This game is great! It fully shows altair story

Never heard of it - P-Bro-N-J

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

15 Assassin's Creed III - The Tyranny of King Washington The Redemption

Although it was glitchy and had a cheesy ending, this is what ACIII should have been. In TOKW, Connor isn't an emotional softy. He is more like a grim reaper, which is really cool. His animal spirit costume is amazing, and the spirit powers are a really fun addition to the game. The storyline was very well executed as well. - ShuhBanggg

The powers were super fun, and the outfit is one of my favorites. - ShuhBanggg

very good

16 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. - Kaustab

I really like all ac games I have not played altair's chronicles yet but I think this is going to be a good game

Side Scroller With Short Story (But Hey Altairs Not American Anymore! ) Bad Combat (But Hey Its On Mobile! ) Bad Graphics (I Have Assassins Creed Idenity On My Ipad And Assassins Creed Altair Chronicles AC Identiy GREATLY Surpasses ACAC.

17 Assassin's Creed II: Discovery

Reminds Me Of Spiderman Web Of Shadows On DS

Ac 2 discovery I think is a version of ac 2 but on ds

18 Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry

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

This dlc can take up to 20 hours to do everything. this proves this has moreLength than other games its that good. - Therandom

Freedom cry is the story of adywally when he is younger

This makes me feel the life of a slave...love adawale
