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!
Finally an action title not another lame action-RPG. a few bugs with graphics and floating on rooftops, but very fun. Another thing I didn't like was that when you do all parts of a task i.e. 9 of 9 vantage points found you get... NOTHING for it Yay! the game only saves when it says saving, check points are lost when you quit the game. but at least you can die many times and there are no penalties. I was hoping for a tracking system stats ala Elder Scrolls, but not too many extras here. Very solid game play and I love running around killing all guards even though there is no real reward, except for the few templar knights found -I think you got to kill 100-. the sheer pleasure is in playing the game and sneaking on foot on rooftops or with blurring speed on horse back. The horse-back controls are way more tighter than oblivion's were. another silly thing about the game is how you can stealth kill next, and even in front of guards and they don't even notice it was you! Anyways rent this game NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been playing Assassin's Creed since the moment I received it in the mail a few short days ago. VISUALLY STUNNING is the best way to describe it. The gameplay is nothing like anything that I have played before. Being able to take what is assumed to be historically correct and relive it through a video game is wonderful as well. I have only been forced to put down my controller due to 2 events: low battery and sleep. I plan on taking another few days to finish what has turned out to be the best game I have played on the PS3. I have friends that are playing on the XBOX and are liking their experience with it just as well.
