The Assassin’s Creed games ranked from worst to best
The Assassin’s creed juggernaut is unstoppable. What began as the spiritual successor of the Prince of Persia. It has since grown and mutated to produce sequels, spinoffs, and tie-ins that are only slightly related to the original title. Ubisoft has found that the Assassin aspect of Assassin’s Creed has become a problem. Each subsequent release fails to find a tangential explanation for the connection to the Crusades-era order of professional killers.
The vast AC catalog contains many games, so there are plenty of historical eras, locations, and places to choose from, including the shimmering waters of the 18th Century Caribbean or the mythical glory Ptolemaic Egypt. This diversity makes it difficult to determine which game is the best, but we are still trying.
Pirates are easily one of the most boring and basic titles to ever bear the AC label. It’s basically a mobile game minigame that is based solely on the sailing mechanics in Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.
Pirates isn’t a shame. Its convincing visuals combined with arcade-style ship fighting give an impression of one of the mainline series’ releases. Even though the story is a bit thin, it does have a decent plot. You will embark on a journey for treasure and glory using your smartphone.
However, it is still flimsy. It’s difficult to overlook the fact that Pirates is a mobile spin-off meant to be a distraction and not a full-length feast. Pirates look more like a dry-out rockpool rather than an endless, bottomless ocean on the Assassin’s Creed depth chart.
Ranking every Assassin’s Creed does not mean ranking all Assassin’s Creeds. This includes role-playing trading card games created exclusively for iOS. Yes, Assassin’s Creed: Memories existed, but only the most avid franchise fans and trading card game lovers would have noticed its brief existence.
Memories was released in 2014, but it was not updated until 2015. The servers were shut down in 2015 by its developers. This means that players will have to rely on the other installments of this list to continue their Assassin’s Creed adventures. AAA fans are happy, but those who enjoy trading card assassinations will be disappointed. This is a niche subset.
