"Not game of the year but good..."
4 stars"

Assassin's Creed.. where to begin. Okay, well let's start with the most obvious stand-out point: the graphics. They're just simply spectacular. There have been a few games released this year that have pushed the boundries of what was thought possible on next-gen consoles.. and most of them have been with the PS3. I'm talking Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Ratchet & Clank Future, Heavenly Sword, etc. Now out of all of these games I really cant decide which one is better… but no matter, you get the point: the graphics are ground-breaking.

Gameplay wise Assassin's Creed really could have benifited from a little more work. Dont get me wrong – its cool running around entire recreated cities from the middle-ages and being able to use almost all buildings as latches. And it is fun jumping from rooftop to rooftop all the while having 20 guards chasing you. It's fun. But what was missing were the smaller details. The assassinations. The dev team really could have taken a page from the Hitman series when it came to this area. What I mean by that is there is simply no insentive to make the assassionation worth-while. There are no stats, nothing. As long as you kill the target and escape then you pass… and after playing the game once there is really no need to do it again.

In conclusion the game is good.. it's certainly not Game of the Year worthy – but pretty close. The main problem with this game is unfortunately the storyline. It just plain sucks, and so does the ending (if you can call it an ending). Anyway, check it out for yourself.

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.
