Ezio is back, the legendary Assassin that played a big part in the success of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Now you can play through his life story in the Ezio Collection, remastered for the new generation.
Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection includes the following games:
- Assassin’s Creed 2 – This is where the journey started for Ezio and what better era than that of the Italian Renaissance.
- Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – Find out the secrets in Roma, the greatest city in Italy. Help Ezio grow to lead the entire Brotherhood of Assassins.
- Assassin’s Creed Revelations – The final chapter for Ezio, where he follows Altair’s footsteps. In Constantinople, will Ezio discover what he is looking for and get the Revelation?
As an added bonus, you will also get the two short films about Ezio, Assassin’s Creed Linage and Assassin’s Creed Embers. This helps to complete the experience of Ezio’s life and is a great addition to the collection.
The Assassin’s Creed games have been remastered for the current generation and although there is only so much you can do to remaster a game, there is some weird looks in AC2. AC2 was initially released in 2009 which wasn’t that long ago. If you look at comparison images or videos, you will see that the environment looks much better in the Ezio Collection on AC2 compared to the original. You might find some weird instances find though, an example and one that is currently trending online is that of the scene where Ezio is confronting a rival and the rival’s bystander’s face looks very weird. After investigating a bit and re-looking at my own game, I found out that the “weird” face is a random glitch that was also present in the original and appears randomly. So Polygon, who reported this first was probably just trying to generate a lot of hype.
The other games in the collection looks even better to me and considering they were released 2010 and 2011 respectively, it just shows you how technology grows and develops. Gameplay wise I could not fault anything that was drastically wrong or that you would not expect from a remastered version.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze’s tale is a tale that must be played through, and as the most iconic Assassin in the AC franchise any fan should own this collection. The two shorts add some extra flavour to the collection and makes it that little extra valuable to have.
