Assassin’s Creed: first game is the ‘purest,’ says creator

Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets has explained why he feels the first game in the saga is the purest and why he feels it surpasses other entries in the series.

In an interview, Désilets – formally of Ubisoft – reveals why he feels so strongly about the first Assassin’s Creed: “I like the first Assassin’s Creed because it’s the purest one. There’s a bunch of stories that you can have, but it’s all in your head. You have to create your own adventures.”

“Whereas in Assassin’s Creed II,” Désilets continued, “we created the adventures for you and you’re following them. For me, the first one is an amazing toy. The second one is the real game with rules and missions and it’s really precise. But personally I like the poetry of the first one. It’s pure.”

Assassin’s Creed 3 is out October 30. What do you think? Does it look more pure than the original?
