This was a tightly written, excellent review of a compilation. I found a few spots to fix:

"will result in Desmond be desynchronized" < 'being'
"going through sparsely-decoration locations" < 'sparsely-deorated'
"kicking a guard to break his guard" < just struck me as funny repetition

When I was in the middle of my own Assassin's Creed binge, I played through the original releases of the games in this collection and then continued on to Assassin's Creed III, which I finished. I haven't played any of them since, despite purchasing them. I love the series, but I burned myself out a bit and III ends on a bit of a sour note, I thought.

I need to get back to the series. Judging by my own gaming activities, compared to yours, I suspect you'll beat me to that!

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Thanks for the catches and the kind words. Yeah, it probably won't be super long before I get back into AC with 3 and so on, but I do want a bit of time to recharge the batteries. I could tell with Revelations that, while I liked the game, I was getting a bit burnt out after going from 2 to Brotherhood to it back-to-back-to-back with no break between them. Figured that if I quickly went to 3, I'd be in a very nit-picking mood. But overall, I found these games to be really fun and, if the series in general is along their level of quality (I know a few of the ones between 4 and the more RPG-ish ones starting with Origins got comparatively mediocre review scores, but from what I gleaned, a lot of that had more to do with things like the hero was more boring than Ezio (at least Unity) and/or the game being really derivative of others in the series. Which means that I'd like them, but probably wouldn't want to play them in quick succession because that could get tiresome.
