The Game series starts from Assassin’s Creed I. It is the first part of the series. The game is a story-based scientific, historical, adventure, and action game. It is a fictional story of a real-world event. It is inspired by the centuries-old struggle between the Assassins, who fight for peace with free will, and the Templars, who desire peace through control.
The player in the game is a modern-day man who relives the story of his ancestor through modern machines. In this part of Assassin Creed, He relives the memory during the Third Crusade in the Holy Land in 1191. It has the plot revolving around the Secret Order of Assassins. It is based upon the historical Islamic Hashshashin sect.
The story begins in 2012, Abstergo industry’s two scientists Warren Vidic and Lucy Stillman made Desmond Miles, who is a bartender in NY, US, be kidnapped. William Miles, the father of Desmond was an assassin. Then, the two scientists of the Abstergo Industry put Desmond Miles in a machine called Animus. This machine can retrieve information from the history of the ancestor of the person through his/her DNA.
Through Animus, Desmond relives the early years of Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad during 1191. Here, Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad is a fictional character in the game. He was a master assassin during the Third Crusade in 1191. He is one of the main members of the Assassin Brotherhood. He is also the ancestor of the maternal of Desmond Miles.
Altaïr was given a tack to redeem some artifacts and pieces of Eden, But, he didn’t follow the protocols of Assasin’s which resulted in death and severe injuries to his Assasin Brothers. This made the assassin mentor Al Mualim demote him to the junior level. Then he orders Altaïr to kill nine individuals to regain his honor.
Over time, he gets to know that those nine individuals were the secret templar agents. They were conspiring to find the apple of Eden, the mysterious treasure with godly powers. Among the nine individuals, the last was Robert de Sabre, who was the templar grandmaster.
To kill Robert d Sabre, Altair planned in one of the funerals. But, it was in vain. Then He went to King Richard I of England where He found Robert De Sabre. There he killed the templar master, but also found that his mentor Al Mualim was also with them as he was a secret templar. Templars were finding the Apple to get the godly powers of Apple of Eden.
Al Mualim ordered Altair to kill the nine templar agents so that he can use all those powers only by himself. Altair also gets to know that, Al Mualim was using young Assassins to execute and find the location for Apple of Eden.
After knowing this, He went to the Masyaf, the headquarters of assassins, where he found that Al Mualim was controlling everything thing with the Artifacts and the piece of Eden. However, He managed to kill Al Mualim and called himself the leader of All Assassins.
Then, Altair tries to destroy the piece of Eden so that its powers would not be misused. But instead of destruction, the apple showed the map where all the other pieces of Eden were located.
After being the assassin leader, Abbas one of the assassins does not accept him as the leader. So, Altair was sent 10 years away from the assassin family. Then, Under the leadership of Abbas, the assassin brotherhood got worse. So, in the end-time of his life, Altair killed Abbas and reclaimed the leader of the assassin post. In this course, Altair’s wife was killed, too.
With this, the purpose of Abstergo’s Scientist is fulfilled. They found the location of Eden. Now they introduce themselves as modern-day Templars. And now, they were going to kill Demond. But, he found that Lucy Stillman was an assassin so he got saved by Lucy. In this way, the game story ends.
The further story can be played in Assassin’s Creed II.
You have to play the game sequentially as the story is. The game is set in an open environment and played from a third-person perspective. The main purpose of this part of the series is to carry out all the assassination ordered by Al Mualim. This means while playing the game you have to kill those nine templars who were conspiring to find the apple of Eden.
This game is wonderful to play as you get a lot of adventurous tasks to do. You can play the game on PlayStation 2 as well as on your pc.
You may also have to do some reconnaissance missions before attempting the assassination. These missions include eavesdropping, interrogation, pickpocketing, and completing tasks for informers and fellow Assassins.
In the game, you also have different side objectives to complete. Also, these side objectives may give you a perfect insight for your next target. You can climb up to tall towers to map out the city and save citizens who are being threatened or harassed by the city guards. Additionally, you can collect templar flags and hunt templars to kill them.
The graphics of the game is epic. The clothes, faces of characters, maps are so well designed that it feels like you controlling a real-life person.
Moreover, the animations in the game are very entertaining. The game has parkour moves and the animation of those parkour move are very smooth and realistic. I wonder how much effort has been put into the game development to make such beautiful transitions and animations.
Well, the game is said to be designed and inspired by Prince of Persia. However, Assassins Creed carries a different level of gaming experience for gamers. Also, the storyline is very adventurous.
You must feel that while you are running through hills, riding horses, fighting, and so on.
At last, I would sum up and say that, you won’t get any game as adventurous as Assassins Creed Series in the history of adventure games.
