Proponents against playing video games believe that they negatively affect gamers minds, and make it hard to disassociate fact from fiction. Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed" series (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) has consistently promised to take interested parties into a new world—and it does more than you can believe.
Gamers find themselves in The New World, as cultures collide to tell the foundation of America's civilization. For those who are not history buffs, the 13 colonies were the birthplace of our nation and the streets were bristling with life and activity. The protagonist is still Desmond Miles, but the ancestor you inhabit is a half-British, half-Mohawk warrior who earns the name Connor.
Gamers navigate the brick walkways of Boston to the wild frontier, and cross scoundrels, freedom fighters and hardworking immigrants along the way.
