Best Assassin's Creed Games


The Top Ten

1 Assassin's Creed II 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 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.

I have never had so much fun climbing up buildings and pushing archers of buildings in my life! Sure the others were good but they were all inspired (except Assassin's Creed) by this one.

I can't remember having more fun with any game than AC2 when it came out! Everything about this game was perfect!

2 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag 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.

I think this one is the best as it has more to has a wider variety of islands to explore,more side missions,personally I think a better storyline and obviously, even more as your in the golden age of piracy.its good as Edward has loads of problems, wasn't trusted by the assasins for a while. And in the end,he met his daughter and you find out his son was haytham, which wanted to make you play ac3 #assassinscreed4isthebest

3 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood 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.

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!

This game is like the best game I have ever played, great fighting style, great graphic, not as great as Assassin's Creed II storyline, Multiplayer is a BEAST! And much more things you can do! I don't know why this game is not on top?

The best assassin's creed ever

4 Assassin's Creed III 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

Best story hands down. Conner was extremely passionate about his people and freedom. He wanted to have a relationship with his dad but understood that killing him was part of what had to be done. You felt what he was going through and the struggles. The ending was especially awesome how he was on the brink of death and still would not let that stop him from killing his target. This was the best game of the series and yes better than black flag. Good job on this one ubisoft.

I've played all the games in this series (AC1 to AC4-Blackflag) and I truly accept that this is the best game in the series.
No other game in the series have as many features as this one. Gameplay, combat and hunting is outstanding.
I see lots of opposer's of this game and I know the reason. Initially British didn't accept because this game is was somewhat against them (their history of ruling policy). so, they started giving negative opinions. People across globe thought that this was true and didn't even try the game. Many stopped playing not even completing their 25% of the game. I'm sure that if anyone who has completed more than 50% of the game (of which main game is just 35%) and the one who have played The DLC (Tyranny of king Washington) will always say that this was the best game of their life. Side missions are so cool which include hunting and exploring (Homestead and frontier missions).
Any body who disagree me dare to post a comment against this. Eligibility for ...more

The storyline is awesome and you can fight in the revolutionary war bloodiest battles like bunker hill

5 Assassin's Creed Revelations 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.

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... -_-


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.

Good multiplayer

6 Assassin's Creed 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

7 Assassin's Creed: Rogue Assassin's Creed: Rogue

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.

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

Amazing game, my second favorite after II. It changed my perception not only on the series, but also on the world (When do we need to restrain liberty for control and order? ) The locations are stunning, from the magnificent North Atlantic to the gorgeous White mountains in River Valley. My only con is the length of the story; it just feels so rushed! Plus the final battle with Liam is even more anti-climatic than ACIII

By GoOgLe PLUS+ a million times far the best game of damn 2014!

8 Assassin's Creed: Unity Assassin's Creed: Unity

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.

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.

It should be second!

9 Assassin's Creed Syndicate 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.

Awesome story

10 Assassins Creed III Liberation Assassins 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.

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
