Graphics and Gameplay.
“The graphics of the Assassin’s Creed games simply illustrates the evolution from the very first Assassin’s creed game, which was released in the year 2007.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX2nyTNtA94 (Words taken from the description of the video.)
As the years have passed with each Assassin’s Creed game being released every year or so, the graphics and gameplay have become increasingly better and improved significantly to what the creators of the game believe what you would enjoy and find entertaining. In some perspectives, it would have the same graphics as perhaps some platform or action games which may resolve around the same story base as Assassin’s creed. Although with the gameplay, there are a few things that you, as the player, would find quite irritating and would get you think “whaaaat”, or annoy you in general. Aside from the minor bugs, or out of the map glitches that can occur out of the absolute blue, the gameplay is simple, easy and fun, and the game is based in third person, so you’ll see what your character looks like and see how they flow with their movement in combat, running around the map, free climbing, doing assassinations, anything at all, you’ll be able to see and control to do.
The image on the left is the first Assassin’s Creed game, where as the one on the right is the most recent Assassin’s Creed game.
Since each Assassin’s creed game is based in the past – including the 18th or 17th centuries, and even before those times (earliest was the 11th-12th) – they give us music that relates to what would’ve been played back in those times and in what situations you, as the character are in. When you are free roaming, the music connects us with the game, and how it would’ve been back in old times. When you are involved in combat, music will tend to play. Adding to that, you can hear the noise of your sword when you sheath, or when you want to show off your daggers, crossbow, whatever weapon you wish to use, they all have a unique sound, so you know what it is.
