Review: Assassin’s Creed V2: Setting Sun
Charlotte De La Cruz is still way over her head, with the Templars in pursuit and unsure of her role within the greater good as explained by the Assassins… especially since the Assassins are fractionated as well within their own.
With this realization, her only hope is to unravel the mystery of what they áll want from her… and to do that she needs the Animus. Diving into the memories of her Inca ancestor, Quila, she is desperate for a clue, a link, anything that might point towards a little more… knowledge.
Quila is now in Peru and has been caught. Quila is about to witness the end of everything that she holds dear. The Emperor needs to be warned of those who are conspiring against him. Quila will have to learn how to exactly team work. She’s not the type to take orders, but if she doesn’t co-operate and insists on striking out on her own it could cost lives. (source here)
The parallel between this flashback and Quila’s ancestor Charlotte De La Cruz in the future does not go unnoticed as tension within the different factions still are imminent and Charlotte remains thrown between them till the very end.. which admittedly is a great end!
The writing team are top-notch, delivering a solid high-end story, with dynamic storytelling, a narrative that is dead-on and with a tension that makes you want to read on and on and on…
Without the support of a great artist, this would be wasted though, so please bow before Neil Edwards who make sure every twist and turn, in the past or present, is presented with the right amount of magick a real artist can only provide!
After reading ASSASSIN’S CREED V1: Trial By Fire (review here) and now Assassin’s Creed V2: Setting Sun, I cannot wait to catch Assassin’s Creed V3: Homecoming!
Bottom line? Whether you love the game, cannot wait for the movie or are just a noob who wants to read a really good and intense comic, you better run into the comic book store to get this series!
