- Assassin's Creed: What to read next
PC Gamer Ranked (opens in new tab) are our ridiculously comprehensive lists of the best, worst, and everything in-between from every corner of PC gaming.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is almost here, so it's time to look back over the entire series. You don't have time to play them all, which is why we've sorted the best for you.
From humble beginnings as a follow-up to Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time—for part of its preproduction the first game was even called Prince of Persia: Assassin—the Assassin's Creed games have come a long way. They've gone from a series of earnest attempts to depict underutilized historical settings, to ridiculous romps through theme park versions of settings as well-trod as Victorian London and Ancient Greece. Along the way they've experimented with multiplayer modes, 2.5-dimensional spin-offs, and just straight-up turning into RPGs. They've defined a style of open world game, with maps full of icons representing repeated tasks, and experimented with different ways of traversing those open worlds, with evolving systems of parkour free running and additions like sailing ships.
We've ranked the series from worst to best as a team. If you disagree on the individual placements of certain games, take heart in the fact that so did we. A lot.
Number of entries: 15
What's included: All of the mainline games, as well as the Chronicles trilogy, Assassin's Creed 3 spin-off Liberation, and both of the Assassin's Creed 2 continuations—Brotherhood and Revelations. DLC is considered alongside the games it comes from, even in the case of DLC that was also released standalone like Freedom's Cry and the Discovery Tours.
What's not included: The various handheld and mobile exclusives that were not ported to PC. The movie, the comics, the books, and the rest of the transmedia behemoth that is any Ubisoft property.
And now: Every Assassin's Creed game, ranked from worst to best.
15. Assassin's Creed (2007)
Samuel Roberts: There are so many Assassin's Creed games that iterate upon the barebones original that I would never recommend anyone playing it under any circumstances. By the time you've finished one Assassin's Creed game, another one will be right around the corner. This entry hinted at the potential of an open world assassination game that's about one quarter as intricate as Hitman, but the second game was the one that nailed the formula.
Jarred Walton: I played the original back when it was the only option and found plenty to like, but also way too much repetition. The first tower you climb is an awesome experience. Thirty towers later, not so much. Over 10 years later, things have changed, and going back would only ruin any good memories I have of the game. Even at the outset, the open world was extremely repetitive. If you missed this one, at this point it's best left alone.
Tom Senior: Time has not been kind to the original Assassin’s Creed. At the time it was technically impressive, and the idea of a time-hopping historical action game was really novel. Now the series is well and truly established, the first game is more of a curio than something you would install expecting a good time.
14. Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India (2016)
Jody Macgregor: The 2D spin-offs each explored a different setting with a different art style. Here it was the Sikh Empire in 1841, with visuals inspired by lithographs of the era framed by henna patterns. As neat as it looked, like the other Chronicles it was just a pretty reskin of Mark of the Ninja, this time with a protagonist whose limited toolset emphasized the big problem all these spin-offs had—they were essentially puzzle games, each checkpointed section needing to be completed perfectly, with controls that weren't precise enough to make perfection possible. You die a bunch trying to figure out how it wants you to complete a section, and then you die a bunch more fumbling with the controller trying to convince the contextual controls to do what you want.
13. Assassin's Creed Liberation (2012)
Tom: This port of the 2012 Vita game explored stealth in more interesting ways than any of the other games on the list. As Aveline you can change clothes to present yourself as a slave or a wealthy lady, manipulating NPC's assumptions to access restricted areas and get closer to targets. A lack of changing stations means changing appearance is a bit of a faff, but the main problem is the game's origins on a handheld system. Spectacle is an important part of Assassin's Creed's appeal, and Liberation struggles to deliver on a modern PC monitor.
12. Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (2016)
Jody: The stark blocky shapes and red skies of propaganda posters informed the look of the 2D spin-off set in 1918 Russia. Like Syndicate a year earlier it features two protagonists: Assassin Nikolai, and Grand Duchess Anastasia, who appears to be possessed by Shao Jun from Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China. The variety it gained thanks to the two characters' different abilities—Nikolai has a rifle he can use in sniper sections, and Anastasia gains Helix powers that let her stealth through glitches—elevated it above India, but it was still let down by unresponsive controls and saves too far apart.
11. Assassin's Creed 3 (2012)
Samuel: The third game brought us a beautiful world, but one that felt so devoid of interactivity that you might as well have not been there at all. It's a criticism I'd level at the combat, too. I remember Assassin's Creed 3 as a game that plays itself against a beautiful backdrop. But hey, it did debut the boat combat systems that would be built upon in Black Flag (then turned into its own game with Skull and Bones), where the idea of fighting other ships actually made sense. 3 also loses points for having a deeply boring protagonist.
Tom: Assassin's Creed 3 has some of the worst missions in the whole series, full restrictive invisible walls, unclear instructions and boring tasks. The game implies that you can hunt redcoats for supplies in wild, wintry forests, but the reality is far more bland, and the towns aren’t as exciting to explore as London, Paris, Venice, or Rome. It's a shame, because few games tell stories about colonialism, but AC3 manages to make it boring. It's quite buggy, too.
James Davenport: Love how it introduced those perfect, perchable V-shaped trees to the series though.
10. Assassin's Creed Rogue (2014)
Tom: An average retread of Black Flag in dull wintry tones. The ship combat is still fun, but it's impossible to escape the de ja vu if you've played and enjoyed Assassin's Creed 4 already.
Jody: It's surprising that the big twist—you play a templar rather than an assassin for much of Rogue—has so little effect on what you're actually doing. It's like one of those villain monologues, "We're not so different, you and I," only the conclusion you come to isn't "the assassins are no better than their enemies", it's "both sides are just doing variations on the same mission types". Rogue does steal from the greats though, and if you want more Black Flag, here it is.
9. Assassin's Creed Unity (2014)
Tom: Paris is my favourite Assassin's Creed city. It's absolutely gorgeous, even in the slum areas. Sadly it was an overambitious project and the game suffered from a ton of technical problems. The involved loot system hinted that the series might move into RPG territory long before Origins arrived, but it wasn't particularly interesting. Arno was a complete nobody and the story is chronically dull. A real missed opportunity given the beautiful setting.
Jody: The bugs have mostly been fixed and a modern rig can run it smoothly at last. Plus, the ridiculous mobile app tie-in that wouldn't let you open certain chests unless you'd progressed in its minigame is long dead and you'll have access to all that stuff immediately. Unity today is much closer to the game it should have been at launch, and just quietly it's pretty good. The time-hopping Animus glitches that let you experience France in WWII, the Middle Ages, and La Belle Époque are fun diversions (in one you climb the Eiffel Tower while being shot at by a fighter plane), and there's a mission where you have to chase a hot-air balloon across the rooftops. I don't even mind Arno.
8. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China (2015)
Robin Valentine: This game holds a special place in my heart—it was one of the first games I ever reviewed for a proper games publication. At the time I called it "the most exciting thing to happen to Assassin's Creed in years" which in retrospect is perhaps a little strong, but I did find its 2D side-scroller take on the formula really refreshing. While the main series was already firmly on the path of action-adventure and explosive setpieces, China was an actual stealth game, something like a cross between Mark of the Ninja and the original 2D Prince of Persia games. The story sucks—all self-serious brooding and boring MacGuffins—but the setting, 18th century China, is wonderfully evocative, and brought to life with a lovely painterly art style.
I never got around to the two sequels, but from what I heard the quality quickly nosedived after this first instalment. Which is a real shame—I think it was a totally worthy experiment, and if the series had continued it would've been a fun way of keeping some of AC's original stealthy roots going alongside the main series' open-world epics. But alas.
7. Assassin's Creed Revelations (2011)
Tom: I'd be tempted to argue this should be higher, though I think if you were going to play an AC game right now Revelations, the third part of the Ezio trilogy, would be a tough recommendation. This game is crowded with unnecessary features and tedious distractions. The tower defence minigames were rubbish, for example, and the crafting system was laboured.
The big gimmick in this one was a hookblade that let you scoot down ziplines that someone spread across the rooftops of Constantinople. Those are quite fun, and you get to hang around with Leonardo Da Vinci, and Revelations features some of the craziest action sequences in the series. Overall, however, it's a bit of a muddle.
6. Assassin's Creed Syndicate (2015)
Samuel: London is a dazzling setting, and the idea of two main characters works well, as does the rope launcher that lets you reach high locations easily. Origins has since refined the series' ancient combat, though, which was getting a bit creaky in this entry.
Tom: After the letdown of Assassin's Creed Unity, the series was getting wearying at this point. The sibling assassins at the heart of it were a fun pair, but I didn't find London to be as fun to clamber over compared to other cities. Syndicate did so little to advance the formula and distinguish itself from the rest of the games it ended up being oddly forgettable. Yet again there were problems with bugs in certain missions. It had more flair than Rogue, though, and was less wonky than AC3.
Jody: Syndicate's an interesting turning point. It's similar to Unity in that it's focused on a single city, and it borrows Unity's hops to different time periods with a more significant jaunt to WWI. It also expands on the RPG mechanics that Origins would push further.
It's also one of the silliest games in the series. It's got carriage chases where horses somehow drift and sideslam, a mission where Charles Darwin sends you to an asylum to assassinate an evil doctor, a straight-up fight club, and sidequests where Charles Dickens sends you after evidence of ghosts. You save the life of Karl Marx one minute and Queen Victoria the next. You unlock an outfit called "Maximum Dracula". It's gloriously daft, an action movie wearing Assassin's Creed clothes. It also has the best song (opens in new tab).
The Top 5
5. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (2010)
Samuel: Brotherhood depicts Rome really well, but I prefer having multiple cities to explore in Assassin's Creed rather than just one, putting the second game ahead for me. Calling in assassins with a single button press to do your dirty work feels empowering as heck, though.
Tom: I became obsessed with building Rome, building up my assassin school and finding the little tombs hidden around the city. I wish more games would steal the command that summons an assassin from a nearby bin. It feels badass, and I like seeing how the game will figure out where the assassin leaps out from. Sorry, guard, it turns out an assassin has been waiting in that trough since daybreak waiting for me to turn up and whistle.
James: I don't remember much about Brotherhood except that I left my Xbox running to complete those passive delivery and assassination tasks, and my electric bill actually ending up killing me, the ultimate AC irony.
4. Assassin's Creed Origins (2017)
Chris Livingston: It's just great that we can still be completely blown away by a game world. Just floored by it. Considering how far games have come, and how many we've played, and all the different sights we see on a regular basis, to just be rocked back on our heels, stunned by the beauty and detail and scope of a location like we are in Origins.
Tom: I couldn't get on with the combat or the level-gating of enemies but visually Origins sets a new standard for Assassin’s Creed. None of the other games capture the bustling ambience of a marketplace quite as well, and I love the ability to hop from dusty ground level to an eagle-eye view of Egypt.
James: Origins showed that I could totally dismiss the meta-plot of AC and give a damn about the characters. Bayek and Aya were some of the series' best. Their pain felt real, and I appreciated the nuanced view of a relationship, not only after the death of a child but after the passage of time. It's not so easy as linear, perfect love, and Origins' writers did great here.
3. Assassin's Creed 2 (2009)
Samuel: A consistent and engaging action-adventure with a lively setting, a likeable protagonist and a decade-long revenge tale.
Tom: Venice is a beautiful setting for a game, and it's a pleasure to explore it as the jovial Ezio. Personally I prefer Brotherhood because I enjoyed collecting assassins like Pokemon, but 2 has the better story, and it’s the point where the series really gains some personality. The first game could feel like a tech demo waiting to become a game, 2 lives up to the promise.
2. Assassin's Creed Odyssey (2018)
Andy Kelly: In many ways, this is the peak of what Ubisoft has achieved with Assassin's Creed. It's clear RPGs such as The Witcher 3 and Mass Effect have been a great influence on the direction of the series, with richer, freer quests, a bigger, more interconnected world, accessible character customisation, and dialogue options.
Odyssey is probably slightly too long, but it's a big, beautiful, sweeping adventure set in a vivid, mythical vision of ancient Greece. It feels like the least historically accurate Creed yet, to the point where Greece and its scattered islands might as well be a fantasy setting in places. But that works in its favour, making for a gorgeous world to journey across.
Throw in that brilliant Exploration Mode, which gives you geographical clues to where an objective is rather than pointing a marker at it, and you have an incredibly fun, rewarding open world. But Black Flag just beats it for me, purely because the piratical theme and Caribbean setting are a touch more compelling and well-realised. It's a close call, though.
James: Odyssey is way too long with the DLC factored in. I've been 'playing' it for a few years, and I'm still not done. As of writing this Valhalla is right around the corner. But even so, it shows off Ubisoft's strengths when using every studio in its massive earth-sized pocket. The result is a compartmentalized checklisty thing, but nearly every compartmentalized checklisty thing in Odyssey is good. The characters and questing is good. The boat combat is good. The open world looks good—scratch that, amazing. I loved eliminating the massive cult and climbing the merc ladder. The pieces don't all align perfectly, but the pieces are great in the hands.
1. Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag (2013)
Jody: Each Assassin's Creed game can explore a vastly different time period, but the series' formula has a flattening effect on that. Sometimes they feel samey no matter how unusual the setting. Black Flag's an exception because the Golden Age of Piracy isn't just a backdrop to parkour over, performing air-assassinations off the top of Blackbeard's hat. Once you've done a bit of the assassins vs. templars stuff at the start it goes whole hog on just letting you be a pirate captain, like you've eaten your vegetables and now here's your rum-flavored dessert.
Chris: When we played Assassin's Creed 3, we all had the same thought: this ship stuff is awesome. Why don't they make a whole game out of it? Dreams come true.
Tom: Collectible sea shanties! Too many games overlook the value of a good shanty, but not Black Flag. You can also wear four pistols on your chest and use them in hand-to-hand combat! And you can hunt ghost ships on the high seas! I agree that the story is a slog, but at least Kenway has some vigour, and the game gives you so many ways to sail off into adventure. Black Flag makes me crave a dedicated pirate series with these production values, one that doesn’t have to worry about all that assassin vs. templar silliness. It's odd that the Assassin's Creed game we love the most is the one that cares least about assassins, but there you go.
Robin: The Freedom Cry expansion was an interesting experiment. I'm not sure Ubisoft was entirely equipped for the seriousness of the story it was telling—it centered around liberating captured Africans from the slave trade—but it made a damn good go of it, and I think its story beats landed more often than not. Gameplay-wise it was basically just more Black Flag—but considering what a revelation (ahem) that game was at the time, a self-contained, bite-size follow-up was very welcome.

#1 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Get your crew together, take to the high seas and immerse yourself in not only the best Assassin's Creed title to date, but also the one of the very best pirate games we've ever seen as well.
Assassin's Creed 2 is one of the best games in the series, and the title that arguably brought the series the fame it enjoys to this day. The story of Ezio Auditore is a fantastic one, and the fact that it spans three titles is even more of a treat.Which AC game has the best world? ›

I will say it is Assassin creed Unity .. that game graphics was way ahead of the time when it launched .. still in present time it's great one of the best graphics in games !!Is Valhalla as good as Black Flag? ›
What really makes Valhalla feel like a Black Flag sequel is the lack of reverence for being an assassin, and the extra freedom that affords the game. The string of early Ezio titles aside, Assassin's Creed doesn't really do traditional sequels, but Valhalla follows Black Flag in a more thematic sense.Which Assassin's Creed sold most? ›
According to Ubisoft, AC Valhalla has topped $1 billion in revenue, which makes it the highest-earning Assassin's Creed game in series history. Ubisoft's recent financial report reveals that Assassin's Creed Valhalla has crossed $1 billion in revenue, making it the highest-grossing Assasin's Creed title to date.Which AC game has the best stealth? ›
Assassin's Creed Unity has the best stealth out of all the Assassin's Creed titles because of its stealth-focused world design, social and environmental stealth, crouch feature, black box missions, and a vast arsenal of stealth-based equipment.
Here's the list, from the smallest to the largest: AC1: Damascus – 0.13km. AC2: Florence – 0.30km. AC2: Venice – 0.37km.Which Assassin's Creed has the best parkour? ›

I personally think either 1, 2, or Origins, for the sheer abundance of flags in 1, the feathers and hundreds of treasures in 2, or just the overall scale of things in Origins.Is Valhalla longer than Odyssey? ›
Ubisoft changes its story
Maps get larger, content gets broader, and hours players need to invest goes up. The bloat is reaching the point of self-parody. Like clockwork and with a little bit of misdirection, Valhalla will actually be bigger than Odyssey.
But what about the longest game ever? That honor goes to a small-town AAA game in 1981, when the Pawtucket Red Sox and Rochester Red Wings played a record-breaking 33 innings full of hope, despair and drama.Is Odyssey bigger than origins? ›
Origins, set in Ancient Egypt, clocks in at around 31 square miles, making it smaller than both Odyssey and Valhalla. So while Valhalla may boast itself as perhaps far longer an experience than Odyssey, its 2018 predecessor still has the high ground when it comes to map sizes.How long does it take to 100% AC Valhalla? ›
When focusing on the main objectives, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is about 59½ Hours in length. If you're a gamer that strives to see all aspects of the game, you are likely to spend around 137 Hours to obtain 100% completion.Is AC rogue map bigger than Black Flag? ›
Not really. Assassin's Creed Black Flag has a really big map comprising of seas, forests and some civilized islands. Through out the game, the topography kept changing.Is AC origins or Valhalla better? ›
After Origins, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Valhalla continued the trend. In many ways, these titles improved upon the formula. On the other hand, though, Origins remains the best "new" Assassin's Creed game in a few very important areas.
While yes, Valhalla may be physically smaller in terms of land mass than Odyssey, make no mistake, this is a massive game and will easily stretch 50, 60, 70 hours, depending on how often you get distracted.Should I play Kassandra or Alexios? ›
However, Kassandra suits the role of a heroic character far better than Alexios. Kassandra's behavior, expressions, and overall demeanor are better suited for someone who will save the Greek world from the machinations of the cult.Which is better AC unity or origins? ›
Unity aside from Origins on all points has by far the most beautiful graphics, the best immersion, the best constructed and detailed gameworld, the most animations, and (this is debateable) the best tactically hard combat than all other AC games. Both Origins and Unity are/were ahead of their time.Is AC syndicate better than unity? ›
Unity has a better story & better missions though. They tried to make Arno the next Ezio (doesn't quite land, but they tried) it starts off with a reference to AC: Rogue of all games! Shay from Rogue kills Arno's dad!Which is better Odyssey or syndicate? ›
Syndicate if you want classic AC with planned assassinations and a focus on stealth. Odyssey if you want a Witcher 3 clone with bland writing and more focus in combat.Will Kassandra be in Valhalla? ›
Players can assume the roles of Alexios or Kassandra for Odyssey's story, but they will only encounter Kassandra in AC Valhalla's story while playing as Eivor. Kassandra is the canonical protagonist of Assassin's Creed Odyssey.Why AC Valhalla is the best? ›
Valhalla brings the best version of sea-based gameplay in the series, placing it in a more adventurous light by focusing on the exploration part of things rather than relentless combat that nobody enjoys. Players can relax while on the sea and choose to go on raid missions, bring a fine balance never seen before.Which Assassin's Creed has ships? ›
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag heavily focuses on ship-based combat, but does ship combat reach the same caliber in the latest installment, Assassin's Creed Valhalla?Who is the strongest assassin? ›

Altair shaped the course of history for centuries to come and is one of the few to stand against both the Brotherhood and the Templars.Should I play odyssey or origins first? ›
Play Origins first. Odyssey has dialogue options and improved combat and it would take you forever to finish it if you decide to do everything. depends on how many hours of gaming you can put, both are huge games but Odyssey is bigger.
Ubisoft must be chuffed with Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The open world RPG has now generated over $1 billion in revenue, making it the most financially successful entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise.What is the most violent AC game? ›

Black Flag isn't designed solely to satisfy returning players, but instead to elicit maximum player enjoyment from its rich setting and colorful cast. Black Flag liberates itself from its past, and thus stands as arguably the best Assassin's Creed game yet.Does Assassin's Creed Syndicate have good graphics? ›
However, as you'll see in this guide, Assassin's Creed Syndicate features plenty of detail, high-fidelity graphics, and NVIDIA GameWorks technology, which enhances anti-aliasing, ambient occlusion, and shadows for the duration of the massive game.Does AC syndicate have good stealth? ›

It has excellent black box assassination missions, unique kill opportunities, numerous infiltration points, effective ranged stealth items, whistling, cover and crouching, and different types of bombs (all of which are useful).Is Assassin's Creed stealthy? ›
Assassin's Creed is often talked about as a stealth game that, over time, became an RPG – but that's an oversimplification. In the beginning, going wholly undetected was impossible.What's better Valhalla or Odyssey? ›
For the most part, Valhalla is a worthy successor, but it doesn't exactly outclass Odyssey in performance. The two are largely similar, with one topping the other in particular areas. It's up to the gamer to judge which aspect's lower or higher performance impacts them the most.Is Assassins Creed Black Flag best one? ›

Odyssey is a big, beautiful, never-less-than-entertaining game, overflowing with STUFF. A lot of that stuff is the best stuff from the previous AC games, and some of the best new stuff is influenced by some of the best RPG games out there. The mix doesn't always sit well, but it cannot be accused of not trying.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is worth purchasing in 2022 for its beautiful open-world environment/landscapes, fluent combat style, thrilling side activities, and 100+ hours' worth of content. Thrilling side activities: Orlog, Fishing, Mysteries, Assassinations, Viking raids, Collecting legendary weapons etc.Is AC origins or Valhalla better? ›
