I’m sure almost every hardcore gamer in the world has played at least one, a few, or all of the Assassin’s Creed games. And who can blame them for that because it is a very successful franchise. If you are unfamiliar with the the game, developed by Ubisoft, it's a historical fiction that focuses on real life events. It explores the struggle between two groups, the Assassins and the Templars, each of whom have a different way of achieving peace in the world. It's story is set in 2012, where you meet Desmond Miles, a bartender with strong ties to the Assassin lineage who has chosen the life as a commoner. Abstergo Industries, who are the Templars in modern time, knows about his ancestry and kidnaps him to make him experience the memories of his ancestors. It's all part of their plan to find the location of “Pieces of Eden” so that they can control mankind. Desmond meets the Assassins of the present and works with them. The game follows Desmond through multiple stages as he experiences his ancestral memories, meets other prominent Assassins, and learns more about the Pieces of Eden before his rivals do.
AC has a massive story-line that has expanded into multiple games, comics, films, and novels. Currently a live action film of the game, starring and co-produced by actor Michael Fassbender, is being made and is set to be released on December 16, 2016.
Though it was highly praised for its outstanding visuals, Assassin’s Creed Unity received mixed reviews due to poor story-lines and gameplay. When it was first released, fans were plagued with numerous bugs and other issues in the game. It was fair to say it was a hot mess to the point that Ubisoft had to issue an apology and suspend sales. Ubisoft sent out patches to each of the problematic gaming systems. Sadly, Microsoft Xbox users had the worse of the bunch and had to even re-download the game. The patch was 40GB! So far, it still holds the title for the biggest gaming patch in history, which is not a record to be proud of.
