"Where it all began..."
4 stars"

Assassin's Creed features one of the most unique gameworlds ever created: beautiful, memorable, and alive. Every crack and crevasse is filled with gorgeous, subtle details, from astounding visual flourishes to overheard cries for help. Not enough can be said about the living, breathing universe that you'll inhabit in Assassin's Creed. As assassin extraordinaire Altair, you'll explore three major cities of the Holy Land in the 12th century… It is truly a game to play, an the price you pay. It's worth it, the only let down with this game on PS3 is the lack of trophies…

"Don't believe the hype save your money!"
1 stars"

Seriously, I bought this game because I (like many others) like to check reviews. However it is so misleading.

  1. If you like repetition – buy this game. You cannot fast forward scenes! So if you fail a certain task you have to watch the whole NPC conversation over again!!!
  2. Screen tearing. Most people dont mind this; but console games in my opinion should not have screen tearing to this degree.
  3. This game is hardly about stealth. Other users may disagree but lets face it, the last 2 missions = no stealth; instead your assassin now becomes a duelist who can take on 50+ men tirelessly because all you do is COUNTER, COUNTER, COUNTER. omfg

Please ffs spend the money on ANOTHER game; because this is undoubtedly one of the worst games on the PS3.

"Amazing :)"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was looking for a new game to play and so happened to come across it on mighty ape. Best thing ive ever done :) is excellent to play if you enjoy RPG games or if your just a fan of Assassins creed. A must have game for the Ps3.

"History comes to life, only to be mercilessly slaughtered."
4 stars"

Though understandably simpler than later offerings from this franchise, AC is a very enjoyable play.

Set against the rich historical backdrop of the Third Crusade, the game weaves real historical events and figures into a fantastic narrative, telling the story of an age-long conflict between the secret orders of the Assassins and the Knights Templar.

The game-play revolves around stealth assassination, free-flowing exploration and collection quests. Once the controls are mastered the action flows beautifully, with enjoyably challenging platforming sequences and a smooth but satisfyingly bloody combat system.

The game-play suffers from repetitiveness, in that the structure of most of the missions is very similar though the finer details vary. Similarly, acquisition of collectibles becomes somewhat tiresome after a while.

Whether you blaze through the game in a weekend, or spend a couple of weeks hunting down collectibles, the game looks great and plays well. All in all it is a good introduction to the series, which builds on the core elements with each successive game.

Trophy hunters beware, the PS3 version offers no trophies even for the collection quests.

"Great Game"
3 stars"

It is a very good game but occasionally you don't know what to do but it is still fun in these situations cause you can just explore the world. It is also good because you can choose do what you should be doing, or randomly killing people and running away like nothing happened :) .They is quite a lot to do.

"Stunning game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I found myself playing the second installment of this series before trying the original and just had to see where Assassins Creed had started. It is a complex and graphically stuning game that will evolve around you as you become more compentent as a player. There is a lot to learn yet the controls are cleverly orchestrated to give the maximum options with minimum effort. Not a game for young children but probably a 14+ game in terms of moderate graphical violence. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the third person experience.

Description

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.
