Great Graphics, Great Gameplay, Great Game
Assassins Creed is about a skilled Assassin named Altair who lived during the third Crusade in the year 1191. His objective is to slay the nine historical figures who are propagating the Crusades
This game deserve a 5 out 5 because of its great game play, smooth graphics and game features. The best feature of the game is that you are able to climb any building throughout the three historically correct cities of Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus. In between the cities you can ride on horseback through different environments and meet new enemies.
Another great thing is the side missions such as saving citizens, pickpocketing people, spying, and finding different items are very fun.
Every thing in this game is interactive such as the crowd filled with beggars who just keep begging you for money. You can push people out of you way, or if your running to fast you might actually trip over one. You can also blend in with priests to get into heavily guarded areas. There are also many different places to hide just in case you need to make a quick escape. You can hide in hay stacks, small huts on top of roofs and blend in with the crowd.
There are infinite things do in this game and infinite ways to do them and that is another reason this game deserves a 5 out of 5.Read full review

"Assassin's Creed hits the mark"
"Assassin's Creed hits the mark"
Fantastic experience. The story is greatly engrossing, and telling us upfront from the very beginning what is really going on is intelligent storytelling. Instead of trying to pull a cheap, run of the mill, twist in the end- they tell us from the start and it allows for a very unique style to tell a story in a videogame. Much like Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, this game manages to break the fourth wall, and that makes it stand out as far as storytelling is concerned. If your not into it, that's one thing, but it's unique style and originality in approaching a story like this must be marveled at.
The sound is fantastic as well, with accents done well enough to never sound wrong. Altair's voice is nicely done, although not as organic as the rest, but it gets across the classic "dark, loner, badass" voice you'd expect. The music is top notch, and sound effects add to the atmosphere as well.
Control wise, Assassin's Creed couldn't be better. At first, it may seem strange. That's because of how intuitve they are. The tutorials and progression of the game allows you to get used to them, and master them if you try, by never trying to jam everything in your face at once. Altair moves around like Zorro, bouncing off of everything, climbing up anything. This is the most realistically agile, and acrobatic character to ever be animated in a game. He moves like a ninja, and it never looks "off" because he's doing so in realistic manner's, needing to grab hold of ledges and pull himself up. The best way to describe it is Prince Of Persia's puzzles, only all the time and with all your enviroment being interactive and a tool at your disposal.
Graphically, the game is better than average. There are some hick-ups at times, but not much really. Other than that though, its a very beautiful game.
The game got tons of hype, and in the end people will hold that hype against this game. Go in with an open mind, and don't be over critical expecting the game to be the END ALL BE ALL, because no game can be that. This game is fantastic, it sets the bar of videogaming to a whole 'nother level, and is very enjoyable. It's a stealth based, action adventure game. If your not expecting an FPS shooter or somthing, then you're on the right track. I couldn't be happier with the game, and it gets a 10 out of 10 from me.

The Good and the Bad - Assassin's Creed
After all the hype and record setting sales, I felt the need to give my honest opinion on Assassins Creed. Hopefully it will help you decide if you should buy it or rent it.
The Good -
The one thing that really stands out is the main characters movement through the game world. Never has a character climbed, scaled and jumped through his environment as well as Altair from AC. This game sets the standard for this and hopefully all games in the future will follow in AC's footsteps. The guards AI also use the same abilities as they track you down and as you run from rooftop to rooftop. This gets your pulse pounding as you try to escape from them.
Also using throwing knives to take out guards is a nice touch and jumping down from you perch is always fun and i never tired of these activities.
The graphics and art style are for the most part done very well too, the cities are detailed and interesting , the lighting is nice and the character model is well done too. The time spent polishing the game shows and overall everything works the way it should.
Thats about all the good stuff...well what about the story , combat and the assassinations ? Unfortunately they and all feel pretty average and repetitive.
To start nothing is really BAD or broken about this game but there are certain things that need to be pointed out.
I was pretty underwhelmed with the story in AC. The plot never really motivated me to push on to uncover the story. I wont spoil anything but basically just finishing the game was my driving force.
The developers touted how great the interaction with the enviroment would be but blending in with the crowd forces you to walk painfully slow and i got bored with it quickly. Simply running away and not caring if i was spotted was much more fun.
Another missed opportunity for the developers is that although the cities are full shops and markets all over the place, you cant interact with them. This could have added ALOT to the game but for some reason there is no "items",other than the few you get for completing missions in the game. It would have been great getting new armor, weapons and accessories. Everyone knows how addictive it can be to seek out the best items in a game like Oblivion. But you wont find anything like that here. The combat is decent and having the camera switch to a more cinematic view during fights is cool but again it is very limited with few moves to learn you will find yourself doing the same thing over and over. The missions are also very repetitive. You do the same things to gather information for every assassination. Again the lack of variety drags the game down. You may have heard there are tons of items to find through out AC....FLAGS. Hundreds of flags to find..and they are not fun to find like the orbs in crackdown because you dont gain anything relevant to your character. They dont make you stealthier or stronger or faster. I never felt i needed to find them all.
One of the worst things in the game is the crazy, drunk and poor beggar NPCs that constantly annoy you while you make your way closer to your target. Most people will just kill or punch them but i wish these were left out or given more depth. Also where are the night time levels ? Any good assassin would use the cover of darkness and sadly the horse riding segments seemed tacked on.
So should you get AC ? Yes and it is good but I would rent it first. Overall i just wish they had made Prince of Persia 4 instead.Read full review
