6. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (2013)

E3 Cinematic Trailer - Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag [UK]

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal

Genre: Action-adventure, stealth

Themes: Assassins, conspiracy and piracy

You take the role of a new employee at a gaming studio in Montreal. No, not Ubisoft Montreal, it’s called Abstergo Entertainment. It’s obviously different. Here you are paid to relive the life and experiences of some guy using some high tech software. Fortunately, that guy is a sword fighting, parkour master, rum-loving pirate named Edward Kenway, who uncovers an ancient and dangerous conspiracy, stumbling right in the middle of the Assassins versus Templars conflict. All while visiting the wonderful Cuban archipelago and diving once or twice in its crystal blue waters.

Best job ever.

This game mixes everything you loved from the original gameplay mechanics, like the hidden blade stealth assassinations and the aforementioned parkour, with high-seas ship to ship combat and plunder. Never had high-sea piracy and singing sea shanties been so fun before.

What do you do with a drunken sailor early in the mooorning! Ugh, can’t get it out of my head.

So get ready to a swashbuckling adventure with action, stealth, and salty water, for Black Flag is a revitalizing and amazing game to check out even if you’re not familiar with the series.

7. Assassin's Creed: Revelations (2011)

Assassin's Creed Revelations - E3 Trailer Extended Cut [North America]

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal

Genre: Action, adventure

Themes: Ancient assassins, conspiracy

So, you star Desmond Miles yet again, who is… in a coma. Oh, ok. But to exit such state, he must relive Ezio’s and Altaïr’s memories once more, as we explore Constantinople’s captivating architecture and streets.

I really don’t know how to stop, so I’ll just land on your skull. Deal?

Replacing the hidden blade (*gasp*, how dare they?) you’ve got the hookblade, which is more useful in traversing ropes through the city, making the pace faster and different from previous installments. You must also capture districts, like in Brotherhood, by eliminating the enemy presence and claiming that part of the city as your own (and thus accessing their stores and more). But now you have to defend them too with a sort of tower defense minigame. So a lot of games packed in one.

Chin up, son! *splargh* Oops.

The game features an addicting multiplayer that makes you feel paranoid in an exhilarating manner. Why you ask? Because you are both an assassin and a target, so you have to kill without alerting your mark, and also avoid being assassinated by another player. You also have all the usual goodies, such as collectibles, freaky clues about ancient conspiracies, upgrades, weapons, viewpoints, etc. Even if it might be a little more of the same ol’ Ezio, it is a game worth checking out if you’re a fan. And even if you aren’t, too.
