5.0 out of 5 stars As a reply of a classic this is a bargain, 21 Mar 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Assassin's Creed - Classics Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Slightly oddly someone lent me Assassin's Creed, I returned it and played Assassin's Creed 2, only to love it so much I bought the now "Classics" Assassin's Creed. So in part, this was actually a 2nd play through.

Okay - after playing AC2 I'm both somewhat addicted and hunkering for more. AC when played after AC2 makes a LOT more sense. Some of the story line needs a lot of thought if you see it for the first time.

The game plays close to AC2 but with obvious restrictions in movements and less slick assassinations. A few keys have moved around too, but if you've played one the other is logical if not a little different.

Throughout the entire game I actually just kept thinking on how slick AC2 has been made, from AC. But that doesn't mean AC is a bad game, it's great to discover and find out about your world.

If there are negatives about the game its repetition, repetition, repetition. It happens when collecting flags, getting achievements you've missed, how you need to traverse the same stretch of land every time you load a game, or endure the prattling of your leader prior to getting control of your character.

All of these things are gone in AC2 and TBH for the better.

But as an addict, I don't mind too much. As a reviewer, I'm warning you.

Top tips for replaying this game:

- Check the achievements; make sure you talk to Lucy at the correct times and get all the glitches. If you don't you'll need to replay the game.
- Avoid all flags until you're ready, or mark them off on one of the great-online interactive maps as you find them.
- Never assume a flag is missing, line up your screen, shot for shot with any online guide, including (critically) the background and it's heights from the gamer

You can play this game by just running and mashing buttons, but you'll by far get the most enjoyment out of it by thinking like an Assassin and keeping everything Stealthy.

This is a great game, and at the absurd "Classics" price (sub £10), beyond worth it.
