    Three games, one price. And probably the best Assassin's Creed games in the whole franchise. No money to buy a vacation? This collection gives you the feeling that you're actually walking in Italy.

    Ezio Auditore, one of the most charismatic characters of recent times, is back with an essential compilation... for those who have not played it yet.

    The Ezio Collection is a great bundle with three great games, but that's really all it is. Newer fans of Assassin's Creed that have missed out should absolutely check this out but fans that experienced it years ago really don't have much of a reason to pick this up.

    Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection reminds us of how good, in terms of plot, environments beauty and overall charisma, were the Ezio Auditore episodes of the series. It does this without adding anything new or fixing the original games problems, though, so it's only suggested if you're willing to turn a blind eye on some pretty bad character models and animations and stiff gameplay mechanics, especially in the first two games of the collection.

    Overall, this collection is recommended more for those who missed these games the first time around. Keep in mind, though, that you'll be playing the games more for the story than the gameplay. It's hard to put up with some of the frustrations of the controls and the limitations of the game worlds when things have come so far in the series since these games were first released. If you've played them all before, there's not a compelling reason to return unless you're an Assassin's Creed completist or the series is among your absolute favorites.

    The Ezio Collection is a solid package of three incredibly well-designed games. Probably the best set to remaster for the new generation, but the port is not the best, and if you already beat them all, this is more a trip down memory lane than anything else.

    Just a bad use of Ubisoft’s talent pool, and a worse use of gamers’ hard-earned money.

    This is the best of AC series so far. I love this one so much. Best story and gameplay it is just perfect. I haven't played this good AC gameThis is the best of AC series so far. I love this one so much. Best story and gameplay it is just perfect. I haven't played this good AC game for years. I didn't even remembered that they are so great.

    AC2 has the best world 5 cities are better than 1. Combat was weakest in this one. It was too long.
    ACB has best combat and stealth controls I really like that sword and gun combo and crossbow is so great weapon. Parkour was terrible Ezio loved to killing himself by jumping of cliffs etc.
    ACR has most interesting story I like that 3 storylines. I don't like secret locations in this one. All of them are in dark caves.

    None of them is best or worst all of them have pros and cons and. I really enjoyed doing 100%, collecting every single chest, collectible, weapon, challenge, achievement. It were great times just shame it is already over.
    Playtimes: AC2-23h, ACB-29h, ACR-22h.

    I was an am an Assassins Creed fan. My fav game by far is revelations, although I like ACB and ACII as well very much.
    I truly do not understand the mixed reviews. I am on a curved HDR 4K Samsung TV and XONE S 2TB. Revelations graphics are stunning, they really worked on them. I did not try ACII or ACB yet but we simply cannot expect wonder from a remaster of 3(!) games for this price.
    I recommend this remaster for everybody.

    Avec un peu de retard Ubisoft cède à son tour aux sirènes diaboliques du remaster recompilé sur la génération nesk gêne... avec pas moins desAvec un peu de retard Ubisoft cède à son tour aux sirènes diaboliques du remaster recompilé sur la génération nesk gêne... avec pas moins des 3 meilleurs Assassin's Creed et leurs quelques DLC sur un seul disque !

    L'occasion de se replonger dans ce mélange détonnant d'action et d'infiltration... dans plusieurs villes merveilleuses, les plus belles villes de leur époque minutieusement reconstituées ! L'occasion de constater que la magie opère toujours malgré certains défauts qui apparaissent plus évidents aujourd'hui (l'intrigue totalement "délirante" et la collectionnite des coffres et des plumes qui sent le farmage -optionnel tout de même !- de vieux crevard coréen).

    Nonobstant également le système de combat toujours perfectible sur ces 3 épisodes, on apprécie toujours autant le meilleur personnage jamais créé chez Ubisoft, le bien nommé Ezio Auditore Da Firenze ! éminemment sympathique et doté d'une élégance certaine (son origine italienne à n'en point douter) il dégage un charisme étonnant et une vraie personnalité.

    Ces 3 Assassin's Creed réunis et rajeunis permettent de se délecter pleinement de ces superbes villes de la renaissance mais aussi de moult détails et costumes : l'éclairage a en effet été entièrement revu, de même que toutes les textures. Le gain est immédiat et flagrant, impressionnant même.

    On peut légimement regretter l'absence des 60 im/s mais en l'état, la trilogie tient sans faiblir ses 30 en 1080p. En outre les temps de chargement sont assez contenus.

    Voilà donc une "Collection" qui rend honneur à la saga d'Ezio et qui ravira les nostalgiques mais aussi peut-être les nouveaux venus. En ce qui concerne les réfractaires, qu'il s'en tiennent à la distance de sécurité : rien que la vue des cartes leur donnera plusieurs crises d'épilepsie. Requiescat in pace.

    Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection is certainly one of those remasters meant entirely for people new to series and why i would say that itAssassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection is certainly one of those remasters meant entirely for people new to series and why i would say that it is a nice pick-up for fan's of the series, the lack of any fundamental changes to the appearance of the game as well as general game-play make this release completely skip-able for those who are somewhat mildly interested in purchasing the game. In this review i will be addressing each of the ports in terms of how they preform as both an updated release and as a game itself

    Now Assassin's Creed 2, despite behind held high as the magnum opus of the series, serves ultimately as the biggest downgrade and disappointment within the collection and while the general run of both frames and graphics are consistent, the lighting overall in the game makes most characters look uglier then they did 7 years ago when the game first launched making most characters feel vacant and in some instantiates with their highlighted beady eyes unintentionally horrifying. General game-play runs just as well as it did 7 years ago as well and while future entries such as syndicate and black flag put the parkour elements to shame with poor detection leading to your ultimate demise from fall damage it was ultimately expected to be unchanged whether it be a lack of time on the developers part to resolve some of these issues or laziness i cannot say, but i can guarantee that the bugs are less consistent then those within Skyrim: Special edition. The story overall still holds up quite nicely and even after all this time and seems to miss very few beats with me, with characters still charismatic as ever leading to delightful conversations, and although Desmond plot sort of just dies after AC3 it was nice playing as him again and meeting back up with Rebecca, Shaun and Lucy.

    Assassins Creed Brotherhood while notorious for feeling more like an Assassins Creed 2.5 rather than a full game release also holds up quite well. While i haven't played much what i can say so far is that it runs much smoother than it's predecessor and although it isn't graphically stunning by any means it doesn't suffer from the lighting catastrophe in AC2 as much. Again the story in this game is still quite enjoyable picking straight up from the events of the last games final mission and resolving quite few plot threads left lose by the games predecessor.

    Assassin's Creed: Revelations holds a special place in hell for me as being one of those few games i was insanely hyped about back in 2011 and had to chain myself down to complete at the end of 2012 and where it by no means sucks at the same level in terms of storytelling as AC3 it is quite possibly one of the most undesirable of stories i've ever gone back and played. Now graphically and game play wise Constantinople or modern day Turkey looks great, except suffers from one key flaw, in which it the most bland setting yet with darker shades making each part of the city unnecessarily gloomy and dark when they don't need to be. Altair, Desmond and Ezio's stories lead to interesting end's by the end of the game but the path getting there is tiresome and where few have managed to appreciate the game for what it is, 5 years haven't changed my opinion. P.S. just watch the insanely good trailer reveled at E3 2011 and leave that as you only memory of revelations

    Overall the 3 game package is quite a nice deal for newcomers of the series and delivers atleast 2 interesting stories which will continue to stick with you long after completion

The only downside ofThis collection is great and some of the best in the series. AC2 and Revelations are still my favorites of the trilogy. The only downside of this collection on current gen is that the technical limitations of last gen are easily exposed here.
    Continuous pop ups and things appearing out of thin air. Also the the textures are rough in some places. This collection is for certain dated but the charm of Ezio's journey is what makes it worth to check out for people who love assassins creed and never played these games.
