Assassins Creed: Freedom Cry

270010bThis is the second assassins creed game that I’ve played. The first was Assassin’s Creed for the PS3 and I have to say, they were very similar, a little too similar for my taste. This suggests that the Assassin’s Creed games are all relatively similar and this uniformity is a bit bothersome. Even though there are multiple Assassin’s Creed games, they’re all the same. This similarity makes each game mundane since there is nothing substantially different and new to do or think about. For example, in both of the games that I’ve played, all you ever did was run around and assassinate random guards and every once in a while, there would be someone that is a bit harder than the rest to kill. This was fun at first since the Assassin’s Creed games are one of the first games that had this theme of assassination, but after a few hundred assassinations, they all start to look and feel the same and eventually, they just become boring. And since I had played Assassin’s Creed for the PS3 for so long before, the majority of the missions in this game just seemed plain boring. The only difference was that this game had a different character that you controlled and you killed different people in different places. This is not enough of a difference to make the new game more interesting than the first. The only driving factor that anyone would have for continuously playing all of the Assassin’s Creed games is to follow the storyline. Each new game adds to the big story and eventually, everything is supposed to make sense. But this driving force isn’t enough to motivate me to continue playing Assassin’s Creed games. Therefore, I did not enjoy Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry as much as I had hoped.
