My word, doesn’t time fly? It seems like only yesterday I was having the original Assassin’s Creed described to me in less-than-glowing terms, with the one-at-a-time combat and the stupidly complicated setup coming in for particular criticism. That conversation was back in 2007 and dissuaded me from trying the series for four years, by which point there were already three sequels. Three! And now they’ve just gone and released the fourth one. That’s five games released in six years. Only CoD is more regular as a series.
