H2H: Ezio Auditore di Firenze vs. Altair Ibn-La'Ahad

Last H2H Winner (Nathan Drake vs. Indiana Jones): *INDIANA JONES*

This latest Head 2 Head competition has been inspired by the release and critical success of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed II. Players of the game get to watch Ezio Auditore di Firenze, the game’s protagonist, evolve from a young, fun-loving lady’s man to a much older and wiser Master Assassin. However the game likes to occasionally remind Ezio of Altair Ibn-La’Ahad, protagonist of Assassin’s Creed, who the Order of Assassins see as the greatest of them all. With that comparison thrown in by the game developers themselves, it almost goes without saying that we here at GamerNode would also choose to have these two face off in this latest edition of Head 2 Head.

Ezio Auditore di Firenze:

Protagonist of Assassin's Creed II

Altair is given a chance to redeem himself by being tasked to take down Robert de Sable and his Templar associates. After the events of Assassin’s Creed, Altair uses the Piece of Eden known as The Apple to create many upgrades and changes for the Assassin Order that eventually aid Ezio in his endeavours.
