Six years ago we entered the Animus and experienced a version of history you will never find in a textbook. Assassin's Creed spawned the action-adventure-stealth franchise as it took us to the Third Crusade to live the life of Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad, an Assassin who must defeat the Templars to bring peace to the Holy Lands, and himself.
In the present day (for the game) though, you are Desmond Miles, a descendent of Altaïr's who lives his ancestor's genetic memory by using the Animus. This tool has been built by Abstergo, the face of the modern-day Templars, to find the secrets they need to ultimately defeat the Assassins and control the world. Desmond has been kidnapped by the Templars, and if he does not help them find what they are looking for, they will kill him.
Assassin's Creed has been rated M by the ESRB for violence, blood, and strong language. It has definitely earned that rating, so if you should not be playing a game with such content, you probably should not be reading this review either.
Should you enter the Animus and return to the past, or look only forward, to the future? Let us see.
