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.

- 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.

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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
