The Assassin Creed Chronicles
 
“ A Look Into the Era of the Creed”
 By: Brandon Munroe
Q: What is Assassins Creed?
A: Assassin creed takes place in the years of 2012/2013, feauturing a main character bythe name of Desmond Miles, a bartender who is a descendant of several lines of  prominent assassins. Though raised as an assassin, he fled his nomadic family to seek outa more common lifestyle. He is initially kidnapped by a megacorporation, Abstergoindustries the modern day face of the Knights Templar (the protagonists), who are awareof Desmond's lineage. During these gameplays Desmond
is forced to use the “Animus”
, adevice that allows him to experience his ancestral memories, to seek out artifacts to helpsave humanity from destruction. Abstergo is seeking to discover the location of several of 
these artifacts, or “P
ieces of Eden
”,
 because they hold great power that can controlmankind and alter its fate. Abstergo understands that once these artifacts are found theycan bring humanity into a single unified group under their control. Desmond uses theAnimus 2.0 to continue experiencing the memories of his assassin ancestors to discover the locations of the Pieces of Eden so that, they can be recovered before Abstergo. Whileexperiencing these memories, some of Desmonds assassin ancestors abilities aregenetically leaked into Desmond, The Bleeding Effect, giving him some of the assassinskills at the cost of living with multiple sets of memories and personalities in his mind.
Assassins Creed: Brotherhood 
Q: What is Assassins Creed Brotherhood?A: This is the third installment in the AC series. Desmondand group of allies collected from previous games retreatto the ruins of the Monteriggioni villa in Tuscany, andDesmond reenters the animus to continue memories of anassassin by the name of Ezio Auditore. He experiences
the Ezio’s memories
to identify the location of the Appleof Eden, one of the most powerful artifacts. After facingagainst Rodrigo Borgia, the father of the main enemy,Ezio returns to Monteriggioni, but forces under the
command of Cesare Borgia, Rodrigo’s son, soon attack 
the villa. Cesare kills Mario, the leader of Monteriggioni, and the Apple of Eden is stolen.Ezio then vows revenge by helping to free the people of Rome from the Borgia Family.As Ezio works covertly to turn the city against the
Borgia’s
, he gains followers that wantto join his cause, and Ezio trains them to become assassins forming a Brotherhood.

Review: AC-Brotherhood shares many of the same features as the previous games in theseries. Even though it takes place primarily in Rome the player is able to spend money to buy and upgrade shops and other facilities throughout the city in order to increaserevenue. One great thing is that, Ezio collects the money in banks around the map, givinghim the ability to invest, buy, and sell items. However, the player will be required todestroy Borgia towers that control various sections of the city before buildings can be bought. Saving citizens from certain events creates the Brotherhood of assassins. The player then can invite these citizens to become assassins; they can then be dispatched toremote locations across Europe to gain experience and money or can be called in to helpthe player directly in a mission.
Good:
 
Huge, beautiful city stuffed with amazing detail
 
Lairs and other plat forming sequences are fantastic
 
Economy more meaningful than before
Bad:
 
Main story is disappointing
 
Assassin recruitment is meaningless
Assassins Creed: Revelation
Q What is Revelations?A: In AC-Revelations Desmond comes toconsciousness in a virtual area within the animus, TheAnimus Island. Here he meets a digital personality bythe name of 
“S
ubject 16
. Subject 16 explains that fromthe trauma of stabbing Lucy, Desmonds closest ally inAC-Brotherhood, Desmond must complete memories of  both Altair, the former leader of the assassins, and Ezioto be able to separate his mind from theirs and to allowhim to come out of his coma. The negative aspect of this choice will destabilize the island. As the animusrecovers the memory segments through out the gamethe island beginning to breakdown causing, at onemajor point in the game, Subject 16 to sacrifices himself to allow Desmond to continueexperiencing the memories. Desmond rejoins Ezio story many years after snippets fromAC-Brotherhood, where Ezio is curious to the
assassin’s
origins and has traveled toMasyaf, Syria to locate their original headquarters. There he finds
Altair’s
library, thoughit is locked by five keys from the Pieces of Eden, which the Templars are also seeking believing there to be great power within it. Ezio then travels to the OttomaneraIstanbulwhere the keys are said to have been hidden by explorer Niccolo Polo.There he finds the city embroiled by the feuding brothersSelimandAhmetvying for the

Sultanate, leader of Istanbul. What he does not know but soon finds out is that theTemplars are secretly behind the battle. While searching for the keys, Ezio meets andfalls in love withSofia Sartor,a librarian who creates and translates literary contexts for Ezio to follow towards the locations of the keys. Eventually, Ahmet is revealed as theagent for the Templars, and is killed by Selim, who thanks Ezio for his help but banisheshim from the city for his own good and safety. Ezio uses the keys to witness (along withDesmond)
Altair’s
memories following the death of Al Mualim, a former ally/crusader for the Assassins.Review:
Revelations
includes many new weapons. Bomb crafting is now available,allowing the player to create explosive, distraction and tactical bombs from materialsfound throughout the world and on Assassin's Guild missions. As the player progressesthrough, Ezio can train new recruits to defend "dens" (Assassin HQs) and upgradeAssassin's
mission’s
section called "Mediterranean Defense" in which the player works tostrip control of various cities from Templar hands. This is similar to the experience sidemissions in Ac-Brotherhood. The hook blade is also introduced, which can be used infree running (to travel along zip wires and climb more easily) and in combat (tomanipulate enemies). Eagle Vision has been upgraded to Eagle Sense, which allows Ezioto not only see where his enemies and targets are but where they have been and wherethey are going to be.
Good:
 
Desmond sections have improved
 
Emotionally fullfilng ending
 
Fantastic soundtrack 
 
New movements=more fun
Bad:
 
Tower defense isn’t fun
