This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Desmond, a man who must relive the life of his ancestor Ezio to assassinate various targets and save his fragmenting mind. Most missions require players to find, stalk, and kill enemies by using a variety of weapons (e.g., daggers, concealed blades, crossbows, gun-like artillery); players can also engage in brawls or sword fights with soldiers. Blood-splatter effects often occur when characters are injured; blood stains sometimes appear on the streets and/or characters' clothing. Some sequences depict close-ups of characters getting stabbed in the throat, and enemies are occasionally impaled amid slow-motion effects. During the course of the game, the dialogue contains some sexual references (e.g., “Now that was a sorry looking whore. Won't be selling her goods for a while,” “Your wife really enjoyed having a real man last night, shorty!” and “You going to try to feel me up again?”). The game also contains the word “sh*t” and a*s,” in addition to Greek/Italian equivalents (e.g., “m*rda” [sh*t], “m*laka” [a*shole], “c*zzo” [d*ck]).
