    PSU -- Assassin's Creed's top 5 cities

    Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise turns five-years-old this month, though at the time of the original game’s release, no one perhaps could have predicted its mammoth success half a decade later. Its unique combination of stealth-based gameplay, meticulous in-game recreations of some of the world’s most glamorous cities and an intricate tale of conspiracy and bloodshed, Assassin’s Creed has made its mark as one of the most prolific IPs of this generation.

    However, despite birthing one of gaming’s most enigmatic heroes in Italian Stallion Ezio Auditore da Firenze (while I personally love Altair, he wasn’t the fan-favorite) plus a host of memorable supporting characters, one could argue that the real stars of the franchise are the cities and hold some of our greatest memories within the games.

    After all, who could forget the majestic view of Jerusalem from the hilltops outside the city, the first time you gazed upon Florence’s beautiful Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore and its towering bell tower or performing a Leap of Faith off of the mammoth Coliseum in Rome? Indeed, these are moments that defined the Assassin’s Creed experience, and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the other awe-inspiring moments of this current crop of consoles.

    With that in mind, PSU.com decided to pick our 5 favourite cities from the Assassin’s Creed series, from its inception through to Revelations.

    5. Florence (Assassin’s Creed II)



    The home of Ezio Auditore, Florence – known colloquially as Firenze – is the first city gamers get to explore in 2009’s Assassin’s Creed II, and is easily one of the most dazzling in the entire franchise. The stunning architecture juxtaposed with Jesper Kyd’s hauntingly beautiful score makes for quite the evocative backdrop for some of the game’s earliest stalk ‘n stab antics. While Venice is far greater in terms of scale, Florence still gives off an impressive aura, and carries a sense of importance about it thanks to the various landmarks dotted throughout. It’s also home to the Medici Family, one of the most prominent historical figures to come out of the Italian Renaissance, and their influence is firmly felt throughout this portion of the game. With stunning vistas and memorable set-pieces, Florence may be first in line but its awe-inspiring nature means it is never forgotten, making it all the more satisfying when Ezio returns to the city later in the game.

    I hated the cities in Revelations and the orignal Assassin's creed....ACII is still the best game in the series in every aspect
    Thank You Shaq...For Everything
