The Assassin’s Creed series revolves around the character Desmond Miles whose ancestors were members of the secret society of Assassins. Using a special machine called the Animus, Desmond can relive the lives of his ancestors through their memories.
From a historical perspective much of the history is a bit dodgy but the environments are incredibly detailed giving players the opportunity to explore many ancient cities and interact with famous people of the time. The games are rated M for mature so please be careful when considering this for your child as there is some sex and violence however, by the standards of many games, it is not especially explicit.
The older games are available for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Assassin’s Creed III and Black Flag are also available on the Wii U. The last two games (Unity and Syndicate) are only available on the PS4 and XBOX One.
