While Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection has been around for a little while on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. The collection is also making its way to the Nintendo Switch so I thought that it would be a lot of fun to take a look at what this collection has and also what new features the upcoming Nintendo Switch version is going to be offering that were not available of PC or the other two consoles.
The Greatest Assassin Of Them All
I love the Assassin’s Creed series and I would say that I have liked the majority of the games that the series has had. However, Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection really appealed to me because Ezio is the most awesome protagonist the series has had so far.
This collection tells his story as it comes with Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, and two mini movies about him as well. In addition to the three base games, this collection also includes all of the DLC that was released.
The Master Of The Blade
These are all solid games in their own right, I think if I had to pick a favorite game in the Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection, I would probably go for Revelations, however playing all three in order is really key. What I like about these games is that they take Ezio all over the place. He is out for revenge after his family is betrayed and the story goes in some pretty crazy directions. I know that the Assassin’s Creed lore can get a bit crazy, but with these three games all being set around the same protagonist, it is easier to follow.
Is This A Remaster?
The term remaster gets thrown around a lot these days and I am not sure I would say that Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection is a full remaster. Yes, the graphics are made to be sharper than they were on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, however, it still looks like an older game. Thankfully these were already great looking games so they manage to hold up pretty well. Gameplay wise, not much has been done from what I can tell. They play fine and if you played these originally, you will have no issues. However, if you are coming to this having never played them before, but having played the newer games like Valhalla, Odyssey, and Origins, it may be hard to get into this.
The Nintendo Switch Difference
As the game is new to the Nintendo Switch, I wanted to look at what the Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection for the Nintendo Switch was offering that is different. To start with, it has Switch exclusive features, it can of course be played in handheld mode, it features HD rumble effects and it also has touch screen controls. Now, as great as that is, if you buy this physically, only Assassin’s Creed II is actually on the cartridge! The other two games have to be downloaded to your Nintendo Switch! I hate how this is a thing on the Nintendo Switch!
Even though I already have Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection for the PlayStation 4, I still am going to get it for the Nintendo Switch as well. Having this collection portably is awesome.
Of course, if you are someone who is lucky enough to have a Steam Deck on the way, you could play this portably on there too with the PC version. If you like the older Assassin’s Creed games, you have to have this in your collection.
- It has three great games in one collection
- The visuals have been given a bit of that HD paint
- The Nintendo Switch version does feature exclusive features
- All three games come with their DLC
- The Nintendo Switch version only has one game on the actual cartridge
- The gameplay may be a tad dated and clunky if you have not played these before
