This game is like drugs. extremely addicting, fun to do, but has many severe downsides. It does freeze often, it gets semi-repetitive (climb, kill, collect, assassinate, repeat repeat repeat), this game is still a definite buy but it will get frustrating.
Assassins Creed is a very stunning game graphic wise. Excellent draw distances, fluid animations and fantastic lighting and shadow effects (some of the best out here) Looks wise AC is a 10. Game play is above average (regarding PS3 games so-far)The free climbing is one of the main reasons to check out this game besides the graphics. The story is above average and good, but the game does get a litte repetitive with no real varity to keep you playing beyond once you beat the game. To much of the same: Locate someone, stalk them/beat information out of them/pick pocketing. Very simple controls and flawed fighting system make the game too easy. Searching for the flags is a nice side quest while journeying to your destinations. I did observe game freezing like someone else mentioned but it was only 2 times. Despite that AC IS worth playing through once. Overall this game is worth checking out just to see the future of PS3 games, and if they get better than AC then the future is very Bright for PS3. CHECK THIS GAME OUT IN THE HIGHEST HD THAT YOU CAN GET TO APPREACIATE THE GRAPHICAL POWER OF THE PS3 AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED TO HAVE CHECKED THIS GAME OUT!
