Product Description

Platform: PlayStation3 | Edition: Platinum | Format: Box

Assassin's Creed 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.

Assassin's Creed merges technology, game design, theme, and emotions into a world where you instigate chaos and become a vulnerable, yet powerful, agent of change.

  • 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: 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 gam

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, But Needs Variety 23 May 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Platinum
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Assassin's Creed is definitely a game that can't fail to impress when it's first installed. The scale and depth of the graphics, the smoothness of the animation and the atmospheric sounds combine to create a trully impressive gaming experience and it's easy to get drawn in as you explore the environment.

The combat is fairly easy and the range of stylish kill moves will sate your bloodthirst. It's just as satisfying to stalk city guards and silently kill them in broad daylight as it is to flambouyantly launch yourself at someone and impale them with Wolverine-style abandon.

Sadly, the more you explore, the more you find to dispell the rapture. Once you've completed the missions a few times, you soon realise how repetitive the the gameplay is and how fickle some of the controls can be. I found myself simply killing the begging women so I didn't have to listen to them bleating the same few lines to me over and over again. That said, I still never tire of climbing the turrets and towers just to dive off again into one of the handy piles of straw which break your fall.

The story is good, and I'm looking forward to the next installment which is due later this year. I'm hoping that the developers have done something to increase the range of gameplay to reward those of use who come back for more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Assassin's Creed - PlayStation 3 8 Aug. 2012
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Platinum
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Assassin's Creed
PlayStation 3
Rated 15

1 Player
HD 720p
Requires a minimum of 1330MB of free hard drive space.

Developed and published by:
Ubisoft Entertainment S.A.

Desmond Miles gets kidnapped by Abstergo and placed in a system known as the Animus, Desmond has to locate the Apple of Eden by syncing with a past ancestor and in the case of Assassin's Creed, that ancestor is Altair Ibn-La Ahad(a trained assassin) from the Medieval times.

Story review:
The back story actually provides good tid bits of history, that you might not of known about at school, but Medieval is quite a boring setting to lay host to the primary storyline of Assassin's beating his mentor to the Apple of Eden. Desmond's story at the beginning is a bit rushed, sometimes the creators need to lay foundations of a character first, before they go right in there guns blazing, which is what Ubisoft has done right here. However his story is somewhat explained through narration, but I think it's better to visually experience the kidnapping part than to have it explained to me through dodgy camera angles. I must say though, the story on a whole is dull and lacks any real depth or meaning; it's not the case of knowing what's what, but the case of please liven this up with some explosions. Anyway I've found the story to be dreary on a whole; so it's awarded 2/10

Like I mentioned in the other paragraph; the camera angles are dodgy, where you'll barely get a glimpse of the character's face, but it does say to press something when the screen glitches, but I don't want to be faffing when I'm trying to get the gist of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant game for the average game player 20 Jan. 2010
By Joolz
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Platinum
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a brilliant game!!!! As the name suggests, you play an assassin who has to undertake a number of assassinations in various different cities visiting some more than once. Along the way, you carry out other tasks and search for objects. Sounds simple and to be honest the whole thing is, but it is really fun. As you may guess, I am not a seasoned gamer! I like to play games that are easy to pick up and have good playablibilty which this game has. The story is pretty good, although it isn't as long as some others I've played and there is a degree of repetitiveness in searching for objects etc but that doesn't, in my opinion, detract from the enjoyment that you can get from playing this game. I love the setting and style and the graphics are awesome, felt like I was partaking in an interactive film!! I suppose if you are a swish game player and find games easy to master then this may not be challenging enough for you as the difficulty level doesn't get to stressful levels. However, if you're like me and enjoy playing games which keep you entertained and don't really like getting too tense & stressed at the extreme levels of accuracy that you need to master in some games, then this may be exactly what you are looking for. I want to see more of this style of game around, fun & playable but without raising my blood pressure sky high. Am looking forward to seeing what Assassins Creed 2 has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars must have for ps3 owners 21 Feb. 2013
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PlayStation3| Edition:Platinum|Verified Purchase
assassin's creed is such a big title now that anyone who owns a console and wants to get into the latest franchises and game series should play assassin's creed. it has a unique plot and unique gameplay style, as well as great design. historical fans may enjoy this tight concise game. if the series interests you the second game is also very good, although the sequels after that tend to become bloated and their gameplay and plot is not as tightly packed or plays as smoothly as assassin's creed 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars nothing is true, everything is permitted 5 Feb. 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Platinum
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was looking for a game that would engulf my mind like the Resident Evil series has. Something that wasn't just shooting anything that moves but had a story behind it when I saw the advertisements for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (PS3)) on TV. I admit that buying a game on the basis of an advertisement, no matter how flash, isn't the best way to choose a game, or a series of games, but in this case it proved to be the right choice of game for me.

This is the first "episode" of, what has become, a best selling series.

You start the story/game as an assassin called Altair who, with two others, has been sent on a mission. Altair is a high ranking assassin, but things go wrong and Altair is forced to flee. As you return to the Order's "Master" you start to discover that Altair is not very popular. Altair reports back but is surprised to discover that he is not the only survivor.

Stripped of weapons and rank, as a result of his failure, Altair must learn to use the basic weapons he had long given up for better and more advanced ones.

As he learns, you learn - and what you learn next is that you are not Altair. You are, in fact, a man (Desmond Miles) being held prisoner by an organisation called Abstergo. Abstergo are using a device called an "animus" to access the memories of Desmond's ancestor Altair. They are looking for something in the past, but Desmond doesn't know what and they aren't going to tell him. Following Altair's actions it becomes apparent that not everyone in the past was being truthful too, but who was lying to Altair and what does it have to do with Desmond.
