Assassin’s Creed: Ezio Collection Review
Ubisoft announced a new Assassin’s Creed game last week, to be shown at E3 this year. The game will be written by Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag writer, Alex Hutchinson. This is a good move by Ubisoft, as it gives them the opportunity to start working with an established game developer again, and it also gives them an established pedigree to work with.
But can Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection lives up to the expectations of the series? Is this the Assassin’s Creed game that the Assassin’s Creed fans deserve? Can this game live up to all the hype of the previous three games in the series?
The answer to both questions is yes. The Ezio Collection does a great job of taking all of the best elements from the previous game and is incorporating them into a much tighter, more focused game. If you were worried that the first three games in the series would be very similar, then this game may prove to be something of a let down. However, it still manages to be an entertaining, but not amazing game.
However, I was also very disappointed by the decision to use Desmond from the previous game. I love Desmond and his story and hoped that he would have been introduced in one of the later games in the series. But, he wasn’t, so I will not be playing this game with him. I do feel that this was a good move by Ubisoft as it gives them the opportunity to make the most of a new protagonist.
The new areas are of course much better than the old areas, as you can tell from the pictures. The cities in The Ezio Collection are full of detail, and they really do look stunning. The character models also do a great job at adding more life to the environment, and the environments look incredibly realistic.
Theoverall story of The Ezio Collection is as good as the other three Assassin’s Creed games, but there are a few things that might appeal to fans. In fact, the story is about the same, it is just a bit of a jump from the first to the second.
It is an engaging game, and many people enjoy playing Ezio. He doesn’t have an incredible ability, but he makes up for it with his skill and his wit. Most of the game is walking around cityscapes and exploring the new areas, and trying to find and kill Ezio.
Overall, if you were a fan of Assassins Creed before, then this game should be right up your alley. If you are a fan of the first three games, then this is definitely a step up from the previous games.
