IIRC there's a video that could summarize the previous games, although they're probably all dirt cheap by now, you could just get the Ezio trilogy which should include AC1 since it was on one of the other disks, then get ACIII for Christmas or something. --- "invade some poor sap and jihad bomb him" - LazyKenny
Assassin's Creed 2 is the best starting point (AC1 is crap and AC2 will tell you everything important) and arguably the best game. Brotherhood is my favourite though. --- http://ofnoobsandmen.com/ <----Good comic Game contact information in profile.
