    Being an Assassin could of been more fun...

    I was so hyped up for this game before its release. I remember watching videos of it and... jade... yeah... The game looked so sweet! But then i get my hands on it and i'm not happy! Why am i not happy? Well... this game didn't live up to the hype.

    The first 30 minutes of the game are pretty sweet, but then everything starts to get really repetitive. Having to do the same old go kill this guy, go get a feather from this guy, and sitting on a bench to listen in on someone over and over again gets really old!

    Even the combat gets old! At first you might find it challenging and fun, but later on when you figure it out it's really lame. You can take out 20 guards at once no problem just by countering their attacks. Hell, i can take out 50 guards by countering over and over again.

    Assassins are known to use stealth tactics to reach their target. Some tactics you can use in the game are cool, some are just dumb. A dumb one would be to hold both your hands together and act as a priest by holding a button... if you do that guards will not suspect of you. It's amazing the guards don't see all the weapons on me. What's cool is that you can climb all the buildings in the game to get a birds eye view of your targets and also to stay out of sight.

    The cities in the game are huge and all look amazing. Go to the top of any building and just look around, the graphics are just insane. Not only do you have a huge city where you can go anywhere, but it's full of people as well. All this with very little slow downs if any. The textures, the character models all look top notch. AC is one of the best if not the best looking game of 2007.

    AC won't have you playing for a long time. An average gamer can probably finish the main story is just 10 hours. There are also side missions to do like finding flags and killing all the templars.

      A groundbreaking game with a few flaws holding it back 0

      Assassin's Creed is a game about a man named Desmond (That's right, not Altair) who is caught up in a crazed science experiment, for the pursuit of figuring out the past of Altair, an assassin who lived in the year 1191 A.D. How are they going to discover this through a present- day bartender? Well, the mad scientist has discovered that people's memories are stored in their DNA, and that Altair is an ancestor of our Desmond. Believable? Not a bit. Do you mind, or do you just wanna stab someone? ...

      Assassin's Creed Hits High On Target 0

      Originally printed Friday, November 30th 2007 in the Technique student newspaper and written by myself. I have posted this primarily because there were no reviews for this game, and because I still despite the repetitive tasks think this is pretty sweet game. Even if it now happens to be the weakest within the series. But hey, this is a reflection of what I thought back in 2007 when the game was initially released. This article also contains all of my old feel free to nit-pick.  A de...
