Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted
Assassin's Creed is, if not a perfect game, a perfect experience. Have you ever seen a movie where something was wrong, like acting, script, etc, but you still felt completely immersed and sucked into it anyway? This is what Assassin's Creed is like. As a game, it's good, but as an experience overall, it's fantastic. You are Altair, 12th century Assassin during the Third Crusade. You are assigned to take out nine authority figures who are exploiting and manipulating the land. But the storyline is so much deeper than that. It slowly snowballs, getting bigger and bigger, more immersing, drawing you in more with each cut scene, until you can't put the controller down or tear your eyes from the screen until you see it to the end. That's how good it is. But, even if the game has such a great storyline that gives great reason to play, the controls, interface, and game itself must be good. Thank goodness they are. The control scheme is perfect, and it makes climbing walls and free running an amazing experience. Also, once you master the learning curve for counter kills and fighting, you'll OWN every guard that draws their sword against you. The only minor flaw in this game is the repetition of the same kind of missions over and over again for each assassination target. Thankfully, it doesn't start to get old until the final target. Also, once you beat the game, (12-15 hours), there is still so much more to do. If your more action oriented, you can fight all the guards who are harassing citizens (it gets you achievements if you save all needy citizens in a city). For the exploratory types, finding flags hidden in every nook and cranny of the cities is great, and will also yield achievements. Overall, this game is a must-have. Or, if you know you won't want to go back and play more, a very worth-while weekend rent.
LESS than expected
When I went to get the game I was really excited. But when I put it into my xbox I noticed that there were lots of problems like the fighting physics and the free running. overall its kinda a waste but its okay for gamers who want a challenge in fighting
This is a awesome game that made me motivated to beat it at the very start. I would say that this game is perfect for all!!
What can I say..everything in this game is just beautiful. Love the setting and historical accuracy of the graphics. Gameplay is excellent, though in some aspects it can get repetitive. Interesting storyline and the main kills are unique in that you can do them many different ways. Challenging at times, but not so much so that I don't want to continue. Oh, and be prepared to start the second one as soon as you finish, because the ending seriously hooks you!
Never got old
The game play was so good the graphics were surpassing its time and it never got boning nor old. So I would recommend this to anybody who wants to start a great series of games
Its a great with thrilling rides of adventure and mystery if you like adventure games buy it also don't skip any games in the serie please
its a awesome game it makes you think and actually makes you take your time to find out stuff in the game its a awesome game.
I think it is awsome
It is the best game I have ever played and I think it would be even better if it was for Xbox 360 Kinect
this game is really fun but confusing, i got that game a week ago and probably havnt even done 10%! but then i got stuck and i also got bored of trying so i'm going to get the 2nd one because i heard its the best in the series
playable, but worst in the series
i live the ac series but 1 was slow, and had lame missions. If your gonna get into ac start with 2; now that's a game
