The best Assassin’s Creed games, ranked: from Black Flag to Odyssey

[ad_1] Ubisoft For 15 years, Assassin’s Creed has allowed gamers to sneak, stab and strangle unsuspecting victims in historical locations across the world: from Ancient Egypt to Victorian London by way of Renaissance Italy. Ubisoft’s flagship series has made its own gaming history, becoming one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time (as of September 2022 the franchise had sold more than 200 million copies) as well as one of the most lauded. Not all of them have been hits, of course: for every Assassin’s Creed 2 there’s an Assassin’s Creed Unity, about which the less said, the better. As the Assassin-y universe continues to expand, here are all the games from the main franchise ranked from worst to absolute killler. Assassin’s Creed (2007) Ubisoft It’s a mark of how good the franchise went on to become that the first AC game is the lowest-ranked on this list.

‘Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’ review: An immense RPG triumph

‘Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’ review: An immense RPG triumph

[ad_1] The best thing I can say about Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is that I frequently thought to myself “I can’t believe this game exists” during my 60 or so hours with it.

Unfathomably, Square did it. Rebirth is the kind of gigantic, expansive Japanese RPG that used to define summer vacations in the 90s, but with all of the modern luxuries of big-budget gaming in 2024. It’s lavishly produced from beginning to end, featuring capital-G Great side activities, a miraculous combat system, and a story that actually sticks the landing.  SEE ALSO: ‘Pacific Drive’ review: A frustrating treat of a …

And the human guide can also drop hits for the human players on what to do, said Lightforge Games CEO, Matt Schembari, in an interview with GamesBeat. “We always knew that the mission was always …
