"Beautiful graphics, atmospheric world until the Animus kicks in"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I picked up this game as I'm a fan of stealth games, and I was really looking forward to complex, difficult and satisfying assassinations against an old Middle Eastern backdrop with gorgeous visuals. I got my backdrop and visuals, but I didn't get my assassinations. This game is good but not great. I understand the sequels improve on the various mistakes (there's no kinder word) the developers made with this one, such as the repetitive side missions and various pointless and boring bits. However the Animus idea stays, which while interesting as a story device, does nothing for the atmosphere. This game is a great idea, beautifully presented and impeccably programmed, but unfortunately the developers miss the point.

"Not the best assassin game but definitely the prettiest"
3 stars"

Much the same opinion as Luke: Awesome graphics, especially if you have dx10 and a computer powerful enough to run it at highest detail. The animations are great and just scaling high towers to look over the cities and kingdom is a sight to behold. The view distance is huge. Individual character detail is also good, and citizens are varied enough to not give you de jevu too often.

Bad things: repetitive missions → scale towers, save citizens, eventually kill the templar, rinse and repeat. I also found the comments made by citizens after each rescue quite repetative.

Compared to games like Hitman, this game is on a much larger scale, and more free form, but the downside of this is that there's actually less things you can do and less ways to accomplish your mission. The final downside is that it's too easy, I mean you can fight 10 plus guys at once and beat them without getting hit. A bit unrealistic. In the end I found it more fun to try and run and hide (cos it's more challenging)

Hopefully ACII will be more varied in terms of mission types.

Description

The PC version of Assassin's Creed will feature four brand new exclusive types of investigations.

The first game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history.

Features:
  • Be an Assassin Master the skills, tactics, and weapons of history’s deadliest and most secretive clan of warriors. Plan your attacks, strike without mercy, and fight your way to escape.
  • Realistic and responsive environments Experience a living, breathing world in which all your actions have consequences. Crowds react to your moves and will either help or hinder you on your quests.
  • Action with a new dimension – total freedom Eliminate your targets wherever, whenever, and however. Stalk your prey through richly detailed, historically accurate, open-ended environments. Scale buildings, mount horses, blend in with crowds. Do whatever it takes to achieve your objectives.
  • Relive the epic times of the Crusades Assassin’s Creed immerses you in the realistic and historical Holy Land of the 12th century, featuring life-like graphics, ambience, and the subtle, yet detailed nuances of a living world.
  • Intense action rooted in reality Experience heavy action blended with fluid and precise animations. Use a wide range of medieval weapons, and face your enemies in realistic swordfight duels.
  • Next-gen gameplay The proprietary engine developed from the ground up for the next-gen console allows organic game design featuring open gameplay, intuitive control scheme, realistic interaction with environment, and a fluid, yet sharp, combat mechanic.
