View Full Version : Best Main Assassination Mission in the Main Series - Play-offs

Hey guys. It's been a long time since we had one of these games (I think the last one I remember was related to cities?), so with a new Assassin's Creed game getting released soon, thought it would be interesting to get back to this.

Assassination has always been a core element of the series, so I'm curious which one fans consider to be the best. Sadly, the poll limit doesn't really permit there to be a normal 'thread per game' kind of thing, so let's have two steps: play-offs, where will manually define the most beloved assassination mission in each game, and then a normally polled finals, where each game's best assassination mission will be pitted against each other.

For the sake of consistency, we consider an assassination mission only those levels that have a memory corridor (or, in case of Unity, memory-reading), to not get into a debate if some level that can be structured like an assassination or feature death of important antagonist can be considered assassination.

And, only missions from the main storyline apply. For the sake of fairness, no DLC missions, even Seq12 & Seq13 of AC2.

Below I'll post a list of each eligible assassination mission from each main game. All you have to do in your post is to copy and paste one that is your favorite from every game (i.e. favorite from AC1, favorite from AC2, favorite from ACB, etc.) And then later (next week probably) we'll have a finals against the most popular ones from each game.

Assassination has always been a core element of the series, so I'm curious which one fans consider to be the best...

Awesome: Here's mine.

ASSASSIN'S CREED 1
Abul Nuqoud Assassination

To me the Abul Nuqoud emphasizes all of AC1 -- The Social Element, the Weird sense of admiration, empathy, and respect the victim instills in you, the open-ness of the level but also the large space, and the visual beauty of the mansion. It's great.

ASSASSIN'S CREED 2
Town Crier - Antonio Maffei

The verticality of the levels and the fun you get in climbing up that tower is still great.

I didn't really like any of the Assassination levels in Brotherhood and Revelations, I think all the Assassination levels in AC1 are better than the rest of ACB and ACR combined.

ASSASSIN'S CREED 3
Hostile Negotiations - William Johnson

The best AC3 level in my view. And a better assassination mission than any since AC1.

ASSASSIN'S CREED 4: BLACK FLAG
A Single Madman - Julien du Casse

This one is my favourite for the diversity...you have jungle stealth, then you get the small beach settlement and you have urban stealth, than underwater where you climb the ship and then air-assassination from the ramparts...

ASSASSIN'S CREED ROGUE
Caress of Steel - Hope

The Hope Jensen Assassination mission is a cool gimmick assassination level, and a better take on the Charles Lee Chase...

ASSASSIN'S CREED UNITY
Confession - Sivert

Best of the lot...

ASSASSIN'S CREED SYNDICATE
A Thorne in the Side - Lucy Thorne

And here are mine:

ASSASSIN'S CREED 1

Robert de Sable Assassination (Real)

Learning the true that we call him 'Master' but he is a big liar.

ASSASSIN'S CREED 2

Infrequent Flier - Carlo Grimaldi

Fly like an eagle, kill soldiers kick them and surprise! Everything is permitted!

ASSASSIN'S CREED BROTHERHOOD

Pax Romana - Cesare Borgia

No man can kill him. Yes that is true.

ASSASSINS'S CREED REVELATIONS

The Mentor's Return - Abbas

Abbas-poor man- hunted by his visions end.

ASSASSIN'S CREED 3

Broken Trust - Kanien'keha:ka

A bitter taste...

ASSASSIN'S CREED 4: BLACK FLAG

Royal Misfortune - Bartholomew Roberts

We'll see you again.

ASSASSIN'S CREED ROGUE

Don't play this game.

ASSASSIN'S CREED UNITY

A Dinner Engagement - Le Peletier

Perfect combination: Stealth and assassinate a poisoned target

ASSASSIN'S CREED SYNDICATE

A Night to Remember - Crawford Starrick

The Twins win the game. London is liberated.
