It’s hard to argue that Assassin’s Creed is a document of anything real but let’s try! Each installment attempts to document an accurate representation of the cities it features: Damascus of the Crusades, Florence & Rome during the Renaissance, the revolutions in 18th century in Boston and Paris. The intent of the designers is to place each brick as close as possible to where it would have been. The ‘Creed series is as much a series of theme parks as they are games. With a minor gameplay tweak (remove all the enemies) one could play these games as if she was an historical tourist, visiting important structures and artwork of the day.

The Assassin’s Creed series consists of historical fiction action-adventure games. The plots are set in a fictional history of real world events. The framing story of all the games is set in the 21st century, in which the player controls Desmond Miles, the protagonist of the game, who, with the aid of a machine, relives the memories of his ancestors.

Assassin’s Creed III is set in the 18th century, from 1753 to 1783–before, during and after the American Revolution. The player fights against the Templars, who are trying to seize control of the country. In the game, the player can explore Boston and New York, the American colonial frontier, and the settlements of Lexington and Concord.

    Assassin’s Creed III is a big game that gives you a lot to do, some of which is fleshed out relatively well, and some of which isn’t. It is not, however, content to rest on the series’ laurels. It takes chances with its opening, with its story, and with its characters. It expands the series’ gameplay in enjoyable and sensible ways. As with many ambitious games, not every arrow fired hits the bull’s-eye, yet this big, narratively rich sequel is easy to get invested in. Other games that you can find at stimulate emotion with manipulative music and teary monologues; Assassin’s Creed III rouses your mind and your heart by giving you a glimpse into its characters’ souls and letting you judge them on their own merits.
