The Assassin’s Creed franchise didn’t start out as beloved as many others. The first game got mostly positive reviews, but you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who actually played it to completion. The game was very grindy and repetitive, which turned a lot of people off of the title before the end. But that was back in 2007.
Two years later, in 2009, Assassin’s Creed II changed everything. It added more variety, more various, just more of everything to become one of the most highly acclaimed games of the year. And in just nine years there have been 9 main entries and 11 spin-off titles of this massively popular franchise.
We won’t explain the plot, given that an Assassin’s Creed movie is due to come out later this year and you probably wouldn’t understand it very well with a short summary anyway. Suffice to say, there’s a reason so many people love this franchise so much that they get high quality tattoos of it like the ones featured in the gallery below.
