Any thoughts on the Assassin's Creed games?
I've never played any of them and I only own the first one, but I couldn't really get into it yet (admittedly I didn't try very hard). I often hear that II and IV are the best or most popular, but their prices are still too high for taking a risk atm. So I thought about getting Freedom Cry, which is cheaper and also has the advantage of being smaller and shorter - would it serve as a good introduction or demo, an appetizer, so to speak? (I also got hooked on Far Cry 3 only by playing the cheaper and shorter Blood Dragon first.)
Or should I just give my copy of AC1 another try and forget about the series if it turns out I don't like it?
EDIT: Oh, and another question: I'm a bit worried because Freedom Cry has a German title in the Uplay shop and there is no information on available languages. Does anyone know if buying the game there will allow me to play the original Englisch language version, too?
I'm the first to admit the gameplay of AC will get repetitive, but what keeps sucking me in is the thrill of the parkour-style action, the jumps and pursuits, and the beautiful graphics. I've only played 1 and 2 so far, but the depictions of the Middle East and medieval Italy are gorgeous and very atmospheric.
I say give AC1 another try, you'll find good deals on the others sooner or later, don't rush it.
