Assassins Creed Review
Posted 19 October 2011 - 08:04 PM
Anyone who saw the new Assassin's Creed Revelations trailer will definitely be excited. I am one of the many people who chose to prepare for the newest installment in the AC series by playing through the other 3 games in the series. Here are my thoughts on Assassins Creed 1.
Assassin's Creed starts out addicting and fun. The controls are easy to remember, the graphics are great, and the sounds make the game truly feel alive. Scaling view points, saving citizens, and investigating around the beautifully recreating cities were just so insanely addicting to me. I loved having vigilantes on my side. I needed to have my map complete. I needed to know the full story before I kill my target. These are the feelings that the first half of Assassin's Creed give you.
Then the second half hits you. The gameplay starts to get repetitive. Climbing view points and saving citizens become boring and a chore. Even the interesting story starts to sag. Every time I stepped out of the Animus I got angry. Why did the animus even have to exist? Why couldn't it have been just a game based during the Crusades? Eventually I overcame those feelings and completed the game. Now, don't even get me started on the ending. Anticlimactic game ending at its finest.
Basically, Assassin's Creed 1 was a fun game that turned somewhat annoying due to repetitiveness and a non-existent climax. Of course, that is only my opinion, and I would love to hear yours.
My rating: 7.75 out 10 stars.
Play this game if you want to keep with the storyline. Otherwise, nothing about this game truly makes it a must play.

Not to mention Altair can't swim.... Very frustrating when you're towards the end of the game at the Docks and the crazies push you off a pier.
Heh, i never understood that. Master assassin... Cant swim.
