Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Gaming's greatest historical epic opens an exclusive new chapter on PSP, in a direct sequel to 2007's smash hit Assassin's Creed. Set between the events of the original game and the new sequel you once again control 12th century assassin Altaïr - although you no longer have to worry about also playing as Desmond in the modern day.

Utilise all of Altaïr's weapons and skills to track your target
World class parkour skills help you scale any building
Explore the whole of Cyprus in this PSP exclusive tale
Intense combat sequences require expert timing

This is no dumbed-down spin-off though, with a huge game world to explore however and whenever you like. Just like the home console versions you've complete freedom to climb up and over every building and obstacle, as you treat the island of Cyprus as your own personal assault course.

Using a mixture of stealth, acrobatics and brutal combat you must track down and assassinate all remaining members of the Knights Templar. Using new tricks and old you can hide in crowds, dispatch enemies from the shadows and ultimately tip the balance of power in the ancient world - and perhaps beyond.

Key Features
  • Original assassin: The only direct sequel to the original Assassin's Creed puts you back in control of Altaïr, as he tracks down the last of the Knights Templar.
  • Island adventure: Visit a brand new open world environment as you explore the whole of the island of Cyprus and its many secrets.
  • Tools of the trade: All the same weapons and equipment as the original game are available to you right from the start, including Altaïr's signature hidden blade.
  • New tricks: Altaïr is still gaming's most acrobatic hero as you use his amazing parkour skills to scale any building and learn new moves such as the stealth ledge attack.
  • PlayStation connection: Connect your PSP to the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed II and unlock special extras, including six exclusive new weapons in both games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Altair on the go: flawed but faithful. 21 Nov 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Bloodlines continues the story of Altair as he finishes his business with the Templars, following on from the events of the original Assassin's Creed. You need to be up to speed with the original story to appreciate this game, but if you are then there's a lot to like.

Visually, this game is remarkable for a handheld and is a good representation of the world conjoured by the series' debut. Altair moves fluidly, and the free-running translates surprisingly well to the PSP, with solid climbing mechanics for good measure. Scaling high points in the city districts still rewards you with an impressive vista of the surrounding area. Textures are good, but the environments are sparsely populated - the PSP only has so much to offer in this department, and no-one has yet managed to convincingly create a bustling world. It draws you in regardless, and you will occasionally find yourself doing little double-takes that you are playing this game on such a tiny machine.

The sound effects and music are high quality but a little repetitive. Nice to hear that Altair's voice carries a regional accent this time round, rather than being mystifyingly American.

The combat mechanics are a bit disappointing, feeling clunkier than in previous adventures. The satisfying counter-kills return, but executing them feels less precise and rhythmic than before. There is the usual array of weaponry, but the business of combat itself is found wanting. The stealth elements remain solid, and there is palpable tension as you try to sneak past a street of armoured Knights Templar to reach your quarry, or deliver an important item.

Altair is now upgradeable with coins earned for completing side-missions.

By John Clayton III VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I wasn't expecting much from this game to be honest, but I found myself pleasantly surprised by how good it actually was. There are some major issues here, but overall, this is as solid a handheld Assassin's Creed title as I could ever imagine there being.

Story wise, you're once again Altair, playing as him after the end of the first game's events and cutting out all the 'present day' bits(With the exception of the menu designs for some reason), the game follows Altair's exploits in Cyprus as he continues to fight against the Templars while also trying to unravel the mysteries of the 'Apple of Eden' he acquired at the close of Assassin's Creed 1. The plot is pretty thin on the ground to be honest, but it serves it's purpose well enough. Sadly, Nolan North does not voice Altair in this game, but at least, as the other review has said, this game's voice actor gives him the correct regional accent at last.

The game plays much like the original, but with some of the enhancements from Assassin's Creed 2 added in(Such as money being used to buy upgrades, some minor moves and skills). It still has the irritatingly slow 'blend' stealth walking around nonsense in there, but it isn't as intrusive as in the original I found. Combat has been simplified for the PSP version as well, with the enemies being MUCH easier to kill(Most die after three hits, even if they block, so long, drawn out sword fights are a thing of the past), but the counter timing is a little harder to master this time out. The free running and climbing all work the same as the first game, HOWEVER... this game has one major flaw in the shape of it's camera.

4.0 out of 5 stars bloodlines of the assassins creed 4 Mar 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Assassins Creed Bloodlines is a nice addition to the series, and is nicely representative of what an assassins creed game would have been like if it had arrived a console generation earlier. The games visuals aren't quite as aesthetic as its PSP peers such as Prince of Persia Revelations or Rival Swords, but its good to see that the climbing mechanics and animations still work perfectly. At times gameplay feels smoother than the original, though the world is less open, this has the advantage of stream lining the experience, but has the disadvantage of making levels quick and easy for skilled assassins. An interesting feature of the game is that the main hit contracts are more like end of level boss fights, and require some tactical fighting using Altairs techniques, these can often prove to be be the most differcult and frustrating parts of the game, and will likely be a very affecting factor for fans to consider when purchasing. Assassins Creed Bloodlines mission structure leans more towards that of Assassins Creed 2, with less focus on investigation that the first game had, and its story ties very nicely into the series for those who want a little added depth. The main gripe about the gameplay is camera, which can be a little tricky to master, but shouldn't be that much of problem if you're an avid PSP gamer. I nice bonus of the game is it's connectivity with Assassins Creed 2 (PS3), giving you i nice set of perks for both games when used in connection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good not great 25 Feb 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered the game hoping it would be more like assassins creed 2 but on the PSP. It isn't. It is by no means a bad game however. The free running mechanic is flawed and the story is short but over all i had a good time with this game.
The story followes Altier after the events of the first game(having not played the first game i'm sure how it fits in). I found it to be dissapointingly short as i finnished the game in under six hours and never realt felt i cared for any of the characters. There are multiple side quests to do but there are only few and are very short so dont realy extend play time. There are also templar coins hidden in each area to find to add to replay value but i found most of them in a single play through.
The free running and more so the free romeing has been changed from the console. The world is split up into several small sections which you can cross between at will for the most part. The sections are small however and you will see everything the game has to see quickly as all the sections look the same with only afew exeptions. Thre free running is more like that in the console games however due to the psp's control nub it can be hard to control exactly where Altier is going. The freerunning animations are fluid and look nice much like those in the console games.
Combat I think is the games strongest point. It works in much the same way as in the console games with combos ans counter attaks. There are also boss fights which I found fun and engaing but possibly to easy. The combat animations like the freerunning ones are great.
Ultimately i had fun with this game. It isn't anything special and is unlikely to entertain you for a long time but it is well worth playing esspecialy if you like the console games. It isn't assassins creed 2 on psp but it still is by no means a bad game.
