Hey, guys!! Has anyone played this game? Because the only people I know who’ve played it are my siblings and a close friend. But it gets boring when you want to talk about it with your other friends who don’t know about it so I was wondering if you guys have played it. P.S. it is soo awesome & kool!!
For those of you who don’t know, Assassin’s Creed is an Xbox & PS4 game (though part 1 is played on the computer). It is about the generations long clash between two creeds, the Assassins and the Templars. The Templars search for means to conquer and gain power over the world whereas the Assassins try to take the power from them but not use them themselves; they work in the dark to serve the light. In the current day, the Templars and Assassins try to use the DNA of assassins to trace back to the lives of their ancestors to find the pieces of Eden such as the Apple of Eden. The Templars operate in the company known as Abstergo.
We are first introduced to Abstergo along with the patient, Desmond Miles, who is an Assassin. Desmond is taken to the Animus which allows them to trace his DNA back to his ancestors.
The first 2 parts were great, especially the second part which takes place in Italy with the story revolving around the Assassin, Ezio Auditore. His story is great and how they show it is even better. The next part I really liked is part 4 – Black Flag where the story revolves around Edward Kenway, a pirate. You can actually sail your ship across the sea. And Blackbeard is your BFF!! The next part I liked is the recent part, Assassin’s Creed 7 – Syndicate where the story revolves around the Frye twins，Jacob & Evie. I recently finished the game. The story is great & i’m glad we can use a female assassin but it had no climax, no shockers like the previous parts.
A couple of things I really like about the show is the graphics. The streets, the market, the people, the flowers, the trees, the buildings and monuments are made so perfectly. You can visit many main monuments such as the Colloseum, the Tower of London, Buckingham Place, The Vatican, The Eifel Tower and much more. It’s like being there yourself.
Another thing is that you can meet all the famous historic figures such as the Maharaja of Punjab in the 19th century, Blackbeard as I mentioned, Leonardo DaVinci, the Medici Family, Cesare, Machiavelli, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin and Karl Marx. The Assassins always have an association with these figures. They are usually their allies.
But, as the name of the game states, the Assassins strive for peace with a blade only. Their only objectives are targets to eliminate. This comes in their motto:
“NOTHING IS TRUE, EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED“
In the real world, of course, this is not justifiable. You can’t murder a corrupt politician and say you are doing justice. You can’t eliminate big lethal figures and say you are serving the people. Criminals are brought to court of law where their fate is decided. They cannot be killed before that. I play the game mainly for the story, the graphics and the famous people I see (though killing is sometimes fun though, especially with stealth 😝😝 )
As time has passed, more Assassin’s Creed games have been released. After Syndicate, the next game that came out was Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and by Origins, it means all the way back to the Egyptian Civilization. Unfortunately I’m unable to post a picture of this game but you can easily search it on Google.
Origins takes you back to the origins of civilization in the desert landscape of Egypt and of the Creed. Trade is conducted in stalls outside, people ride in camels and multitudes of palaces and temples are scattered across the map.
The lead Assassin in the game rides on a camel from one place to another in search of vengeance for his murdered son. The perks about Origins is that you have the option to choose Follow Road so without having to move the analog stick and hold onto a few buttons, the camel can take you where you want to do as long as it’s accessible by road. Also the best part: instead of Eagle Vision, you have an actual eagle you can fly around around, scanning for locations, marking people and even help you sneak into locations by distracting the guards via poking them.
However, the game stretched out too long that it got boring that even meeting Cleopatra and Julius Caesar didn’t improve my expectations.
Lastly, the game I adore is called Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey which takes you all the way to the Greek Civilization. The settings were similar to Origins like the Follow Road option and flying the eagle. However, the accessories and weaponry was much better in Odyssey than Origins (you can even ride a unicorn, which I did throughout the game!!) and the story was even more interesting and captivating, especially when unlike the previous games, you are allowed to choose the responses to certain situations which can be stressful sometimes yet is exciting!
Furthermore, you can ride a ship called the Adrestia and fight warships all day, chanting multiple hymns. Also the best part, you can meet phenomenal figures of the past such as Socrates, Plato, Herodotos, Phidias, Kleon, Perikles and Pythagoras which was awesome!!.
Now that I’ve done playing Odyssey, I can’t wait to travel to Scandinavia and play Valhalla!!
Until then, see you soon!
