The most surprising thing about Ezio Auditore in Soul Calibur V happens when you pull off his unblockable move.
I won't spoil it for you but, if you watch this video I shot of a Namco Bandai rep controlling the Assassin's Creed character, you'll see what Ezio's weapons and tactics look like. The Ezio in the game isn't the older bomb-thrower of Assassin's Creed Revelations. He's the younger, faster warrior circa Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. Young or not, he's going to have his hands full fighting the cast of Namco's medieval brawler.
