5.0 out of 5 stars The game that started it all 18 Dec 2013
By GratuitousViolets TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For any serious gamer, the Assassin's Creed games are a must have, and it all started here with this game. If you are looking for a challenging, fun game that will completely engross you from beginning to end then this is the game for you. A game that ticks all the boxes with an immersive storyline that will leave you gasping for more, challenges that will have to trying again and again, and characters that you will love and remember.


A twenty-something bartender is kidnapped by Aberstergo, a mega corporation who have created a machine which is able to penetrate genetic memories within an individual that will allow them to relive the memories of their long dead ancestors. Imprisoned and with little choice but to cooperate, Desmond Miles is forced to participate in the Animus program to uncover the memories of his ancestor Altair, an Assassin who lived during the Third Crusade, an Assassin who will lead Abstergo to uncovering the whereabouts of an ancient artifact that holds great power.

As Desmond lives his ancestors memories, you will be in control of Altair, a young Assassin who recklessly breaks the tenets of his creed and is stripped of his rank, leading him to have to work his way up back from novice while trying to eliminate the evil Templars to prevent them from using a 'piece of Eden' to shape the world how they see fit.

Stealthily scaling buildings, assassinating enemies and changing the course of history, you will become the ultimate Assassin, the one who will become a Legend.

A fantastic game that will have you glued to your console. With references to real historical figures and events, a compelling storyline and fascinating characters, it is unputdownable. The only real drawback about this particular game is it offers no trophies to gain through challenges, but for the price, this is well worth the money and you will definitely want to play it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars nothing is true, everything is permitted 3 Jun 2013
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.
