This review is from: Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360) (Video Game)Not reviewed anything in a while, so thought i'd give the 'creed a review.
There is a lot of mixed opinions on this game.."overated', 'underated', 'annoying', 'frustrating' ect ect..
Personally i really enjoyed playing this, i got it on PS3 and played solidly through the whole thing. I have since re-bought it for my 360 and have started again.
The first thing that struck me was how good the game still looks, sure it's been bettered by the 2 sequels but considering all other early 360 games look so dated now,it's quite amazing.
There are a few problems with Assassin's Creed, namely the fact that it takes it's self a little too serious, the story however is very good and as long as you give yourself time to get into it you will find it easy to immerse yourself in the world.
Another big concern is the repetitiveness of the gameplay. Each mission is basically the same, having to peform a routine to progress to the end boss.
However my tip is to set all this aside..get yourself a walkthrough guide (as it's easy to get lost or not know where to go as you travel from city to city) be patient and take the time to get to grips with the controls.
I played through the game and forgot about the games slight annoyances because the story is so rich.
It'll also set you up nicely for Assassin's Creed II.
