The paradoxical life of a man dedicated to death comes to the PlayStation 3 in the form of Assassin's Creed. This is no Hitman clone however, as Assassin's Creed plants gamers in the midst of the Third Crusade as a member of the sect responsible for the creation of the word "assassin." Gamers take control of Altaïr, a young Assassin who begins his quest shortly after the Christian capture of the city Acre. With avian traits (Altaïr is Arabic for "eagle") and a ritualistically severed finger replaced by a talon-like dagger, he is out to expedite the Assassin's goal of bringing an end to the Crusades with as little bloodshed as possible. But it's up to gamers to decide just how much blood he spills.
Featuring the sort of open-ended storytelling, gameplay, and side-missions as the Grand Theft Auto games, Assassin's Creed is designed to immerse gamers in the medieval world of religious conquest. Set between July and September of 1191, the game features three full cities to explore in Acre, Damascus, and Jerusalem, as well as Masyaf, the smaller base of Assassin operations, and a sprawling wilderness area which connects the four cities. Each city has a distinct atmosphere, and nearly every part of the world is interactive. This lets gamers use Altaïr's acrobatics and strength to bound around rooftops, scale walls, and interact with anything that juts out more than two inches from its surroundings. The game also makes use of a unique control system where buttons correspond to appendages rather than particular actions.
Developed by a Ubisoft Montreal team that features many of the people responsible for creating the fluid character graphics of the Prince of Persia games, Assassin's Creed is designed to feature the most realistic and lifelike characters ever seen in a video game. Altaïr's movement is governed by over 4,000 character animations, and NPCs (non-playable characters) are all designed to have their own needs and concerns, which will lead some characters to aid him, while others may fight him or run away. Similarly, if Altaïr dispatches a few soldiers quickly, other soldiers are more likely to flee for their lives or run for help than eagerly attack and meet the same fate as their fallen brethren.
There are nine central targets who must be eliminated to end the Crusades. After each assassination the dying victim relays some bit of information to Altaïr, moving the narrative along and giving gamers a fuller understanding of the overall mission. There are also dozens of side missions spurred by communication with peasants and merchants, and a number of flags for Altaïr to track down. Assassin's Creed features one final twist that brings gamers back to the present and takes them into the future, opens the door for sequels to come, and gives some insight into the Assassin's creed: "Nothing is true. Everything is permitted."
The "Limited Edition" comes packaged in a tin box, and features a small Altaïr figurine, Penny Arcade comics, a strategy guide, trailers, short films, and a host of behind-the-scenes interviews and videos.

A well-made game.
You play Altair, an assassin assigned to eliminate nine historically prominent figures from 1191, The Crusades. The way you approach these assassinations is partially up to you, and I say partially because it may seem that you have total control of your actions when you first play but as the game progresses, you quickly learn that it gets to become pretty linear with a dash of freedom. To view the map, you essentially press the "back" button but not everything is revealed immediately. In order to truly see what your surroundings consist of, you must climb high structures (usually mosques, towers, etc.) and this is truly an exhilarating experience. You run up buildings by holding down the right trigger and holding down the A button. Climbing buildings is very easy and Ubisoft made it very fun. As soon as you reach the top of these structures, you synchronize with your surroundings and everything in that radius is revealed to you. Before you assassinate your target, you must complete 3/6 investigations and this can be done through eavesdropping, pick pocketing, or interrogation. None of these can be done at random, there are set targets for each action and they are all very well done. Once you are actually ready to assassinate your target, you must retreat the Assassin's Bureau (and every town has one,) from which you will rest before you assassinate your target. Once you reach your target, an elaborate cut-scene/interaction occurs (with optional different angles!) and you have the choice of approaching your target quietly or openly. There are numerous plot twists and a dissonant back story to the game which cannot be revealed and essentially, this game is the first in a trilogy so don't expect to have all your questions answered. All in all, Assassin's Creed is not a perfect game although it is very well done.
Great game, decent contents.
The game is good. The story great. It has the same in-depth story feel and quality much like Metal Gear Solid. It plays like Splinter Cell only in Biblical times. PROS: Good packaging, decent limited edition gifts, great story and plot, fantastic play, fantastic graphics. CONS: Figure is small, and i mean small like a Mc Donalds toy. They usualy are so flimsy that the arm breaks. Plastic around the tin case easily breaks. No add-on content, and my biggest con: NO TROPHIES FOR THE PS3 VERSION!!! XBOX 360 Has achievement's but some reason the PS3 version doesn't, which make you just want to play through and not do any little things (like collect the flags).
Fun game, lots of gameplay, great graphics!
I only gave this a 4/5 because it is not a quite a 5.. maybe 4 1/2. There is a lot of stuff to do and it is a free-world enviornment. You can pretty much go anywhere and climb anything. Unfortunately, you cant go in any doors (like Oblivion). The main missions of the game have you assassinating 9 key members of society. You must pickpocket, beat, or evesdrop your information from people. Once you have enough information about your target, you can continue with your assassination attempt. Besides the main missions, there are over 400 flags to find and 60 mini-assassination missions troughout the huge map. There are people everywhere and they can help or hinder you. Some push you for no reason and can pick fights. Others are just there to get in your way. Everything you do must be "socially acceptable", or the guards will be on alert about you. This game does have some random freeze issues on the PS3. It has been aknowledged by Ubisoft and they plan on fixing this problem. This game is alot of fun and can take upto 40 hours of gameplay to complete all missions in the game. The graphics are very good and are fun to watch. This game also has no online mode, so you'll be flying solo this whole game. If you found this review helpful, please hit YES below! Thanks.
Great story, but this game is not for everyone
Graphics: Breathtaking 9.5/10 The player movements, backgrounds, cities, landscape and scenery are thorough and breathtaking. The dreary colors and drab buildings give a sense of this era. The graphics in this game immersed this game reviewer. Sound: Good – 7/10 The sounds, music, effects, and voices take you immediately into the game, then right back out. It is great to hear the dialogue between all the citizens and soldiers, but it grows tired and repetitive. The score is decent, but it does not carry, nor make up for the faults in the area of sounds. Gameplay: Spectacular – 8/10 Smooth animations, large levels, smart enemies and A.I., different possibilities for battles and puzzles – makes this game fun and interesting. The controls, camera angles, and finicky battle controls sticks out and hurts the gameplay. Replay Value – Above average 6.5/10 Without multiplayer, this game is going to have a hard time getting someone wanting to play again without wanting to go back to get all the flags. With over a million copies sold, something tells me there are going to be a lot of copies for sale soon. Overall – Great 8/10 This has some great story telling and is pretty edgy for what it is trying to say (message wise) for a game. Though once you go through and do everything you want to do in this game, it will sit on your bookcase like a forgotten trophy. This game will not appeal to everyone though. Let me begin by saying that this game is not for everyone. This is one of those games you are either going to love or hate. Assassin’s Creed is a mix of a sandbox adventure game with RPG elements. The reason the reviews on this game have been mixed because it depends on how you play through this game. I played through this game going through almost every quest/side mission, minus finding all the flags, and must say that this in an involved and fun game. More fighting than assassinating, this game shows that a lot of minor details were looked during development. The big assassinations come when you take down each “levels” end target, and doing this the right way makes the game that much more fun. My biggest gripe was the last 1/10 of the game. Gameplay wise, it was disappointing, story wise, it was awesome. I like story telling and this game hit it in a new direction, but I must say, either buy it used or rent it.
THE STORY: Assassin’s Creed is a two sided story that takes place in the present, but affected by the past. You play as a young character that finds himself waking up within some strange device, which at first made you think you were an assassin. You find that within you lies a great secret, which could possibly change the world. Will you be able to escape and find the secrets? Once finishing the game, your opinion of the overall rating of the game will change and ask for a sequel. GAMEPLAY The game is split into different sections, but is very repititious. You will carry the same moves from beginning to end. This game starts off with missions. You travel around with missions to kill certain characters. You will get in contact and communicate at an assassin base where they will provide info for your next target. Before making a hit on the target, they require you to go on missions to gather more information about target. Once enough information is gathered, you will be granted the assassination. You are required to gather about three pieces of information before anything. The method and style of killing your final hits will vary. Some victims will be an easy quick kill, but some will require patience and strategic moves. You will go through the game jumping around buildings, tackling people, and performing a variety of discrete moves. GRAPHICS Very sharp graphics with a great color scheme. The character models look clean. However, after playing the game for hours, the color scheme will make the game seem like everything is blending together and you will not see contrast because there are different shades of one color all throughout the game. Definitely use an HDMI Or component cable! They could have improved the AI for computer characters. IN CONCLUSION Assassin’s Creed does not live up to the hype, but it’s still a really great, unique game. The game includes some imperfections, but still deserves much attention due to the unique color scheme, graphics, and game play style. If Ubisoft plans to make a sequel, they better go back to the drawing bored and improve the game from being so repititious.
