GTA with horses and swords,
This review is from: Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Here we are at last, a game that truly screams next gen. Having owned my 360 for 6 months or so I was beginning to think all i would ever play would be games that were originally conceived for the last generation of consoles but here we are with an absolute beauty.
Essentially think GTA in 12th Century middle east and you are close to getting an idea of whats expected. Missions, cities and a little combat to get the juices flowing. This is much less Splinter Cell than you may be wanting, but as far as I am concerned that can only be a good thing.
Graphics are all you could have asked for. Presented so beautifully that if this game were a woman she would be Angelina Jolie, its that sexy.
The training system is soooo good that it is far less complicated to play that it might look and this helps with selling the package.
Gameplay has yet to wane, but I can see it getting a bit repetitive after a while. The staying power will undoubtedly be the desire to see more of this stunning world.
Its might not be great, but its the first sign for me that the next gen truly pushes what we can expect from games designers and is a great piece of bragging ware. Oh for a crossbow.
