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.
First off let me say that this is how i imagined next gen games titles to be like. The free running feature puts titles like GTA to shame, any thing that looks like you can climb you can, anything you think you can jump off you can, and anyone walking around you can kill. But as in all good things there is a catch, The game play becomes very repetitive very quickly you go to a assasians bearu pick up a mission climb a view point find you objective go do it it is essentily that exact same process the entire game. Now in all honestly i think this game is a rent with the option to buy, But you may find it a little difficult to make the decision. Your call
