AC is a great series. All of the games are unique and are the best and the worst in their own ways. AC(I) started it all, had a great twist, ACII had a great story, introduced new gameplay mechanics and had great missions, ACB was also the same case, ACR introduced new gameplay elements such as bomb crafting, and had as play as two LEGENDARY assassins, ACIII reinvented the gameplay and introduced a new hunting system, ACIV enhanced the naval combat. Bloodlines, Freedom Cry and Liberation are also great games in their own rights.

So, which one is your favourite AC game? Mine would have to be ACII or ACB, but I'd love to hear your opinions. Please vote and comment on why you made your choices. THANKS.

Ass Creed 2, it set the foundation for a non shitty AC. Going from ac1 to ac2 was like going from shit to gold. Also it introduced Ezio who is a amazing character.

I also think Brotherhood is fantastic.

I can't really decide between AC2 and ACB, but I picked ACB.

@brendan:

Yeah. I feel the accept. Accept I went with ACII.

I only played ACII and Brotherhood. I was indifferent about them both. I don't think ACII was good enough to warrant playing another full game. Then I got Brotherhood for Christmas so I played it anyway. It is definitely worse. They managed to make Rome feel like a small, poor slum town.

The first Assassin's Creed will always have a special place in my heart, and I will remember the middle ages setting and Altair with fond feelings, but Assassin's Creed 2 is the masterpiece of this franchise.

AC2 Italy was mindblowing, the atmosphere is too much, and Ezio's story of betrayal and revenge was perfect.

I've 100%ed all of the main games (except Liberation, which isn't really a main game... is it?), and can safely say that 3 is my favorite. I love the village, the setting, the trees climbing, the hunting, the era... everything. The only thing it didn't have for me was super tall buildings to climb but the trees made up for that.

Also I have yet to play 4 but only because I don't have access to a console this year. Will definitely pick it up as soon as I get back to NA.

I recently 100% Liberation HD, and its pretty worth playing I think. At least for the Citizen E, and the interesting setting and stuff.

I'd say that Brotherhood is my favorite, but III is a close 2nd. I'd say IV is a better game in every which way. I.e. its gorgeous on XONE, etc. The rain for sure. But I like III's Native American atmosphere, and a snow setting a bit more.

Interestingly enough, I found this video of dialogue that was supposedly cut from III, but was included in the audiobook I think. It would of totally tie up III a little more, but oh well. I thought it was worth listening to, anyway.

AC2 really got the gameplay down juuuuuust riiiiight, but AC1 is my favorite, I still kind of cared about the storyline in that one, there was a nice mystery behind everything, but then the rest of the games came along and tried to explain away the storyline with just... really dumb crap and I don't care anymore.

#9 Edited by mrfluke (5389 posts) -

i actually might say AC4, but AC2 and brotherhood are good choices

and revelations had some of the best story bits in the series fuck yall.

@zolroyce:

Yeah, ACI did have a great story, but didn't you find it repetitive?

#11 Posted by ZolRoyce (887 posts) -

@miko1222: Oh for sure it did get repetitive eventually, scope out an area, get info on target, kill target, rinse and repeat.
But I'm at a stage right now where I find story to be more important to me in my enjoyment of a game over gameplay. Not that I'll cast aside a game that has better gameplay then storyline but story is on top for me.

I'd say Brotherhood. I haven't played Black Flag, but even though it looks a lot better than III, I doubt I'd rate it over Brothehood.

#13 Edited by handlas (2795 posts) -

Brotherhood.

Feels like I've burnt out on AC after 2 and Brotherhood. I feel like I recognize Black Flag is the best game in the series yet I have no desire to keep playing it. I haven't touched it in a month or so and I'm not very far into it. So with them releasing the trailer of the next AC... it did nothing for me.

#14 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6086 posts) -

Probably AC 2, but very closely followed by Black Flag.

#15 Edited by xyzygy (10091 posts) -

@blu3v3nom07: Awesome, I'm gonna have a ton of Assassin's Creed waiting for me when I get back :)

Black Flag dethroned Brotherhood.

#17 Posted by fatalbanana (220 posts) -

AC II just blew my mind at the time. It was everything I wanted in a video game and it was done right. All the AC's that came after ,though still good, didn't really reinvent the wheel the way two did for me. Fantastic game. Also, the twist in the story was all the way up my alley and none of the other AC twists really reached the heights of two's ending moment. So yeah, its two all the way for me.

2 and Brotherhood were the best followed by Revalations.

Once the games left the large cities for the woods and shanty towns of 3 and 4 i lost interest in the series. One of my favorite things about the games was just walking around the cities and looking at all the historical buildings and stuff. 3 and 4 lost this.

#19 Posted by dudeglove (8500 posts) -

AC2 and Brotherhood were shitballs amazing. Avoid all the others.

#20 Posted by miko1222 (208 posts) -

@zolroyce:

Fair enough. I still think it's worth playing.

#21 Posted by miko1222 (208 posts) -

@oraknabo:

Brotherhood is one of my favourites too.

Surprised Revelations didn't get much votes.

#22 Posted by StarvingGamer (8602 posts) -

Oddly enough, now that I think about it I'd have to say 3. That's when the traversal was at its best and the world actually felt like a world, not a series of discrete rumpus rooms like in 4. Combat was actioned up but still had a bit of challenge, and Connor earned points for being a protagonist that wasn't a puckish rogue. Also Charles Lee and Haytham were much more present/compelling as antagonists than anyone else in the series.

Out of the ones I've played (1,2,4), IV was the only one that wasn't complete torture to play, so that one.
