"Great, if a little repetitive"
5 stars"

Review by Dylan on 9th July, 2009

Unlike most of the reviewers here i thought the futuristic twist to the storyline was great adding depth and complexity to the plot, rather than just you assassinating people for no real reason. yes the tasks can get repetitive, and assassination missions pretty much play out the same each time but the free roaming and combat easily make up for this. If your looking for a game that makes you feel like the ultimate bad***, then this is it.

"one of a kind game.."
5 stars"

Review by Tom on 18th August, 2009

This game is so sick… the free running, jumping from building to building, the missions… its just a whole lot of fun.. can't wait till the 2nd Assassin's Creed comes out. I think it'll be hard to top this one.. and the price is pretty good as well.. great game!

"Want to be an assassin?"
5 stars"

Review by Talia on 19th February, 2010

This is truly turning into a classic 360 game. Its got all you want, a great story line, weapons, betrayal and even a little bit of a history lesson.

If you haven't got this game on your shelf yet, get it now before its too late.

"Shallow Hal Needs a Gal and her name is Assasins Creed"
3 stars"

Review by Tim on 28th December, 2008

Have you ever fell for a girl who is beautiful but when you talk to her and get to know her she really just isn't compatible? Well I meet a game that makes me feel exactly the same and Assassins Creed is that game! Don't get me wrong the game is absolutely beautiful, the cities are massively constructed and are not opened till later on in the game but still the cities are huge!

Free running away from guard is really fun and the A.I is quite good as well as guards will be climbing after you and calling for archers to take you down. The Combat could be better but have some depth only if you want to make the fights more dramatic but if your looking for blood then it is easy to take down guards quickly and counter there attacks.

The real problem comes from the story, a very confusing storyline with flashbacks galore and a real complex plot to get your head around with swapping from real life to dream life and also not having a complete story is at times frustrating and annoying.

If you have read the early reviews you will notice the word “Repetitive” come up alot. Well it really seems like the disc has been scratched like a old school vinyl LP because all objectives just seem like a broken record over and over and over again! It really just hurts such a beautiful game that needed variety but instead all that was given was a rushed attempt at story makeup.

So if your looking for a game that is pretty when it puts her makeup on but then when gets down to it is ugly then this is your game.

"Great game, a bit short"
4 stars"

Review by Jamin on 29th November, 2009

If you're into movies such as the ‘Bourne’ series, you will like this. Being the assassin you are able to play the game with your own tactics. The game does get a bit repetitive towards the end (which comes too soon).

Tip for Xbox users, during the last few levels, make sure you only have 1 controller in the Xbox or else it can get very buggy.

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.
