We go back in time this time to the 15th Century Italy where you play as Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a man who’s family become embroiled in a political plot. This leads to Ezio’s father and brothers being hanged, and Ezio swears vengeance upon those who committed this plot upon his family. This sets Ezio on a course to becoming an assassin, after he finds out basically all his ancestors are all assassin’s including the famous Altaïr of course, problem with the game again is the fact you’re stuck with Desmond sections…. again.
If we take away the Desmond sections however, this is another game in the series that hit every aspect that I wanted it to. It went ahead to add new gameplay elements, a new exciting story, and another badass assassin with Ezio, who is arguably the most popular of the Desmond ancestors.
In comparison to the previous title in the series, this Assassin’s Creed game lives up to the hype that was put on it from the fans hoping for another great game. Thankfully they weren’t let down with this sequel, and were extremely happy with the new assassin to play with, even if he wasn’t the sacred Altaïr. This game is also £9.99 on Steam, and is another bargain in the franchise where Ubisoft haven’t tried to get people to pay over the odds for a game that is years old.
