This is one of the best games ever. Graphics are almost just like real life, and the gameplay is fun, engaging, and thousands of hours in length (you can do pretty much the same thing over and over, and it never gets old, and the story can take a while to complete). If you take the time to read descriptions, you can know quite a bit about Constantinople. However, it is quite violent. Quite a bit of blood spills in battles, temporarily staining surroundings. Some assassinations show up close views of blades going through bodies and blood spurting out. The violence is not gory, though. It may only seem that way. There is one mission in which, in small talk, some soldiers mention w**re. The language isn't that bad throughout most of it, but if you care to stick around on animus island towards the beginning, the f word is uttered. Back to how great the game is, the combat is satisfying, with new secondary weapon and improved combo kill systems in place. The hookblade adds a lot, and playing previous Assassin's Creed games will make you wonder why they didn't think of it sooner. Bombs are helpful in setting traps, luring guards, and turning the tables in a battle. The eagle sense is used in very creative ways during the campaign, many targets being located by using it. The background is jawdropping from extreme heights, and you can almost feel the wind jumping down from viewpoints. Taking over the city, protecting it with assassins-in-training, and recapturing assassin's dens are all enjoyable, and taking over the Mediterranean gives order to leveling up assassins. If you have the money, buy this game. You'll be glad you did.
