Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Series

Today marks the release of Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection, which means thousands of people will be playing through some old games in the Assassin’s Creed series. The collection features three titles in the series: Assassin’s Creed IIAssassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations. All three were good to great titles on PlayStation 3, so hopefully they’ve aged well.

This collection has got us thinking about Ubisoft’s premier series, and more specifically which game in the beloved franchise is the best one. To celebrate this occasion, it made sense to take a look back at Ubisoft’s history and rank the Assassin’s Creed games from worst to best.

Before we get onto the list, here are a few things to consider. First off, only games that took place on a PlayStation console were considered. That means no Assassin’s Creed: Altaïr’s Chronicles or other small spin-offs, although they’d rank pretty low on the list, anyhow. Second, and most importantly, there wasn’t some mathematical formula to come up with this list. It’s all just a matter of opinion.

We hope you enjoyed our look at the Assassin’s Creed series. Ubisoft’s open-world stealth series has had a number of different settings over the years and delivered good games, so it wasn’t easy to decide on an order of this list. Most of the games are well worth playing, even if they don’t all blow the player away.
