start from here?

I have never played any of the series. Is this a good game to start with because it's polished or will I be confused story-wise?

Play the first two first, or at least the second if you can't be bothered playing both^^

You'll be confused storywise... Play them all, they are all good. Each one is better than its predecessor  but the story is still good.

Read the Wiki page for 1 and 2.

Start with two atleast, one was janky and is really ahard to replay. 2 perfected everything and they do a decent job in recaping the story in ACII but read through a wiki of ACI

At least play ACII.

AC1 is fun but really flawed and hasn't aged well, it feels like a tech demo for AC2.  Like others have said read up on the story for AC1 then dive into 2, it's a great game. Plus it's probably going for a great price right now.

Play AC2, while playing AC1 would probably help you, it's not necessary.
