3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but could of been better, 4 Dec 2008
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition (PC) (Video Game)
you play a character called Altair who was a master assassin, striped of his rank and stabbed for his betrayl for exposing the secretive guild to the english army shortly after its defeat, you awaken from inside a machine called the animus which activates certain genetic memories that has been repressed over the years and makes you live what your ancestors did and saw, you real character was an assassin but left and became a bar worker, you have been kidnapped for information on several devices that have been spread over the world that contains information critical to another guild. soon enough you kill 9 people that in our real world died of unknown causes in the holy land some thousand or so years ago. you also see betrayl from 2 characters both in real world and in the memories afterwards.

the storyline aside, the 2 stars for fun is the repetitive nature of the game, it's always collect information before killing the person in question who are some how affiliated with the other guild. killing guards, helping citizens for help later on after your assassination attempt. which is always the same motto throughout the game, until the last few you have to kill, but basically having to kill someone or something before the boss person. climbing up buildings to get a view of the area your in, in question and your not allowed to explore certain places until you completed your mission. their are a few bugs of note which you will encounter including one in acre near the docks where you need an overview, there is a hay bail below, but strangely that tower jump was not configured properly and you will land next to it on the floor next the hay bail and dead, for an example.

the overall game got 3 stars, the graphics aside it's not worth your time and patience and money. your better off playing the old thief games, 1 and 2 as they provide better for assassination attempts from around the same era with exception to the strange magically lights and lamps throughout the city.
