In what order should replay the Assassins Creed games?

45 posts in this topic

So i plan on replaying AC 1, 2 ,3, Brotherhood, Revelations, Black Flag, Rogue, Unity, Syndicate, Origins & Odyssey.

I'm skipping Freedom Cry and Liberation since i didn't enjoy them very much. Will also only focus in main story and avoid DLC to get through the games as fast as possible so this franchise playthrough doesn't take months. 

Should they be replayed in chronological order or in order of release?

 

Recently replayed God of War franchise in chronological order that worked out great. Not as sure AC games will work as good when played in Chronological order.

I would definitely just play them in release order; 1, 2, Brotherhood, Revelations, 3, 4, Rogue, Unity, Syndicate, Origins, and Odyssey. Playing them out of that order wouldn't make sense for the modern day storyline which is linear. 1 though to 3 particular as its Desmonds storyline leading up to the 2012 extinction event and each part of his story happens in quick succession. 

 

I totally didn't take the modern day story line into consideration. Forgot they even existed. But yeah that would screw me up if i started with Odyssey, Origins and then move on to the main Altair, Ezio games. Guess that seals the deal and i'll go with the release order.

Honestly I don’t blame you. The modern day hasn’t been any good since Desmond. Layla’s stuff in Origins was promising but Odyssey ruined it for me. Of course, that’s just my personal opinion :)

It'll also be easier to play in order so that you're not going from smoother gameplay experiences to rougher ones.

Start with Black Flag, jump to Origins/Odyssey and you are free to skip the rest.

Order of release. Unlike God of war series, in AC gameplay changes a lot on every game. GoW is the same until last one.

 

1, 2, Brotherhood, Revelations, 3, Black Flag, Rogue, Unity, Syndicate, Origins and Oddysey.

 

Damn, that's a lot of games. DLC's are pretty good, and adds more info to the main storyline.

Yeah i might do some DLC like Syndicate since i still need trophies from there. But doing all Odyssey DLC will take like another 40 hours so i'll skip that.

Release order,  any other order would just be confusing with real world/story progression, plus you'll be getting better smoother gameplay as you progress which is always good.

 

Also unpopular opinion, Origins>Odyssey.

I have a soft spot for Revelations and I was an AC online junkie, but this is about right.

There's a high chance Origins and Odyssey will burn you out because they're LiVe SeRvIcE. I've spent more than 250 hours in Odyssey and by the end of the last dlc I hated it and I don't want to see this kind of game ever again. But knowing Ubisoft they'll make even more gargantuan map for the next AC.

Your modern day would be all out of cock but it would be interesting to play them in that order

Im currently doing this (slowly) in release order. Main difference being its for the 1st time. 

 

Not touching multiplayer or going for plats. Just finishing. 

 

Every 2/3 months im finishing the next one. 

 

Just finished Black Flag. 

 

Best bit so far: Black Flag

Worst bit so far: AC3 dlc. Eurrrgggh.

Yeah Black Flag is probably the favourite among the vast majority of people. Both story and gameplay is outstanding. Syndicate is underrated imho, throw me you opinion after you finish it =>

 

BTW i'm looking into mods for AC1 so if anyone knows any mods worth downloading plz do tell. It's the only game i'll play on PC since the rest i own PS4

Thats the London one right. I probably have lived nearby from where its set.

 

Also ive heard Jack the Ripper gets involved somehow. Awesome.  And as sad as it seems im a bit of a Ripperologist. Ive only just found out he's in various games in various genres so i may try them too. But AC first. In order. Rogue is next! Then the glitchy french one. Then home to London town!

I always replay games in  chronological order, because gameplay mechanics TEND to get better, if for example you start with Odyssey (or Syndicate, if you don't like the arpg spin) you may find going back to AC1 more frustrating.

101% from old to the newest.

 

The newer games are much more fluent. Characters controle much easier and can climb almost everything without random jumping of buildings which is stupid annoying. I really had a bad time with that in the ezio collection.

If you play the new games and go back for example AC2 you'll get annoyed much quicker. That's my experience and got them all 100% (except AC3).

I don't think it really matters at this point. If you were to do the series properly, then play the older games first.

 

Going from Syndicate or Origins to II and Brotherhood will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

I'm sure you meant Assassins Creed II. The original Assassins Creed doesn't have a trophy list.

Just tought i'd give an update. 

 

Beat AC1 on PC and boy that game has not aged very well. Controls felt alot clunkier then when i played it back in the days. Also running into enemies/civilians trip your character over all the time, that was great design choice... Really looking forward to working my way up to the more modern games.

Unity starts where Rouge ends. But AC3 happened around same time as the Rouge to Unity overlap.

 

So basicly then should play Rogue, do child missions in Unity, then play AC3, then do rest of Unity 😂

Good times? 

 

I played it on 360 a while back too. Its...well its not a dirty game...perhaps muddy would be a better word. Dunno. I remember a lot of grey and brown.

 

At the time ac1 was damn good. But sadly my memories from it are flags (why did i bother!) And as you say....bumping into people constantly. Eurrrghhh. 

 

I enjoyed the story for what its worth. 

 

It gets better from here.

Yeah story is good, but playing AC1 before the more modern AC games sure made me look forward to playing the Ezio series remastered on PS4 =>
