Assassin's Creed

Hey guys, Spooge here and today I want to talk about the Assassin's Creed series, mainly Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood because well, I haven't played the first Assassin's Creed yet.
Nothing is true, everything is permitted.
Assassin's Creed II is a massive improvement from the first game from what I hear.  It still features Desmond Miles using the animus to relive the memories of his ancestors, but this time he escapes Abstergo Industries with Lucy, who reveals herself to be an Assassin.  Instead of following  Alta├»r Ibn-La'Ahad during the crusades, it takes place during the Italian Renaissance and follows Ezio Auditore da Firenze.  He is born into a family of Assassins.  It isn't until his family is betrayed by his dad's best friend Uberto Alberti, that Ezio begins to follow in his fathers footsteps as an Assassin.  He goes on a long journey to get revenge on the people that killed most of his family.  This game is fantastic, but the game has one downfall.  It has no multiplayer.  The single player gameplay sets itself up for some awesome multiplayer, but unfortunately there was none in Assassin's Creed II.    

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood fixed that problem, and also added some awesome additions to the single player.  There are a ton of side missions in Brotherhood, and a ton of items to collect like Borgia Flags, and feathers.  You can also buy buildings all over Rome to earn money, much like the Villa in Assassin's Creed II.  However, in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood you only have Rome to explore, unlike the previous game where you could visit multiple cities including Florence, and Venice.  I believe Rome is big enough for its own game though.  It's really cool to see landmarks like The Coliseum and The Pantheon.  The ending to this game is even more suprising this time, and it will leave you saying, "What the fuck?".

The multiplayer in this game is intense.  Especially when you are following your target around and waiting for the perfect moment to kill them.  Here is some gameplay for the multiplayer:

Another thing I wanted to talk about is the upcoming Assassin's Creed Revelations.  The cool thing about it is that you get to play as Altair, Ezio, and Desmond.  Instead of Italy, the game takes place in Constantinople.  Ezio is a bit older in this game, but it doesn't look like his age has slowed him down.  Another cool thing they added is the hook blade, a new attachment to Ezio's hidden blade.  They also added a bomb crafting system where you can make tons of bombs to use against your enemies.  If you haven't seen the trailer yet, you should.
... and here is some single player gameplay:

Anyway guys, that was my article on the Assassin's Creed series, I hope you liked it!  Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think!  Have nice day! :)
