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.
