Assassin's Creed II: Bonfire of the Vanities (Xbox 360) Xbox 360 Game reviews

 

This add-on is a flawed but refreshing way to revisit Renaissance Italy.

Nothing is true; everything is permitted." We learned this adage in the original Assassin's Creed, and Assassin's Creed II carries on the tradition beautifully, inspiring you to rethink the conspiracy at the heart of the series--and to reconsider what...

Now with more stabbing in the neck action.

All in all, Assassin's Creed II, in many ways, should have been what the first game was like. While the story was still interesting, it was kind of a bore having to do repetitive and tedious missions to move it along. This is not so with the sequel....

Assassin's Creed III

 

Leaving the Old World behind and moving the action to 18th-century America, Assassin’s Creed III’s setting is a clear indication of the forward progress the series has decided to take after two years of retreading old ground. The relative side stories...

When its glitches reveal themselves and poor design decisions and mechanics arise, it’s easy to be disappointed with Assassin’s Creed III. But the risks it takes with its storytelling, the focus on characterisation and the way it expands and refines...

Over the years, the Assassin's Creed franchise has grown into a comfortable groove, one players have come to appreciate, whether they're high-diving on someone to bury a hand blade in their neck or battling a group of soldiers with fancy sword play....

Not to mention the listening activities. There are times you're forced to get close to particular targets and listen in on what they're speaking about, while remaining in cover. Sometimes it's easy, but other times, whether you're hiding in the grass...

History is our playground”, Ubisoft has repeatedly claimed in the run up to Assassin's Creed III's launch, and if that is indeed the case then boy, is it one bloody big playground. Not only is there a lot of history to take in on this particular...

Assassin's Creed III is a fantastic game that's marred only by a glacial few opening hours, a surfeit of history and exposition, and the odd glitch. That aside, ACIII is a triumph and the perfect way to say hello to Connor. It doesn't quite measure up...

A resonant story, compelling exploration, and tense oceanic battles make Assassin's Creed III a rousing success.

Enthralling, thematically rich storytelling ; Tense and atmospheric sea battles ; It's a joy to watch your homestead develop ; Amazing attention to historical and visual details ; Lots of rewarding missions to undertake

Too many bugs and glitches ; Hunting mechanics go largely undeveloped ; Parkour and stealth inconsistencies

As you play that opening, it's hard not to wonder: when does the fun stuff come? In retrospect, however, the slow pace makes sense. This is the biggest game in the series by a notable margin, and once the beginning is put in context, you'll be glad for...

Assassin's Creed 3 puts you in the middle of a fascinating period of history and makes you feel like you could reach out and touch it - but is it a revolution for the series?

The latest entry by Ubisoft Montreal wastes an opportunity to fix major problems in the series.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: The Da Vinci Disappearance Review

 

Leonardo da Vinci's gone missing and Ezio must save him, but should you care?

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: The Da Vinci Disappearance is fun, but it's the same fun you've been having with the game you already own and Ubisoft is asking you to fork over an additional $10. If you're a multiplayer fiend and need new modes to try...
