This game, I admit took a while to grow on me. Between the seemingly repetitive missions and confusing storyline, I nearly returned it. I decided to give it one more try. I'm glad I did because as the plot thickened I found myself immersed in the story of the once great assassin, fallen from glory, trying to redeem himself and restore the faith once given to him by his brotherhood and trusted master. This, with the aid of a rather surprising plot twist of the games introduction, is where it gets interesting, and addictive, leaving you wanting to know what's going to happen next. There were a few minor glitches where i swung my sword at an enemy and when he blocked it he sunk in the ground ( I thought that was pretty cool though). One time the game froze, just once, no biggie. That aside, the game play was fluid with large maps and plenty of things to keep you occupied. Like scaling large buildings overlooking the city to get info on your assassination targets. To helping out civilians in distress who will in turn assist you in fleeing the scene of a messy assassination. The controls take some practice to get the character to perform the intended movements (i.e. you have the option of kill or stun during combat). Fortunately, the game has a training ground where you can hone your many skills. The graphics on my hdtv make me proud to own a ps3. This was one of the better games I've played in a while. took me 2.5 wks on and off to beat. The game was not short though, with an ending that will leave you waiting for he sequel.

the game is repeditive, that is the only reason it got a 9 and not a 10. But the worlds, tha AI and what you can grab/climb is out of this world, the game will remind you of prince of persia but only for a few seconds, because once your on your horse riding to the city you will find out how much more indepent you are as Altair. the controls are pretty spot on, little tricky to learn but work great. the frame rate rarely, and mean almost never jumps, which means you can have hundreds of people on screen at once and never have to worry about missing a jump off a roof or into a hay stack, the story is a little weird, nothing like you would think just from screens, but it seems to work. hopeing for a sequel with more and more powers or at least some kind of power.

This game is great. As soon as I got it from Gamefly i popped it into my ps3 and i couldn't stop playing it. I loved how the creators made the game so you feel like your apart of the historic cities. The character designs are perfect and the story line is awesome. I ended up buying the game after i rented it. I suggest this game to RPG gamers and to anyone who like a little history in their games.
