I have only one word for this game...Amazing!! This is one of the best games I have played this year! And that's a lot of games. The graphics are beautiful and you feel like your right in that time frame. The story plot...is a little more....wired. I still haven't figured out what the heck is going on, but when I fully beat the game it will probably become clearer.
Anyway back to game, the controls are right on, you can pretty much do anything with your newly lowered ranked assassin. Jumping no problem take the leap of faith. Want a nice spot on that high tower no worry just start to climb and there you go. Even riding your horse if a fun task in itself. Though there were a couple of times were my horse gave away my position...But the guards were an easy bunch.
Is there anything bad about this game.....Ummmm not really, at lest I didn't find anything wrong with it. By far next to Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4, Assassin's Creed is one of the best games to come out this year for the Xbox 360. You must buy this game!
I have been excited about this game since I saw the first trailer. I had it in my Q for weeks before it was released, and then I realized that I didn't want to rent it...I wanted to OWN it (sorry Gamefly). It is quite possibly the best gaming related purchase I have ever made.
I cannot begin to describe the fun and immersion that this game will bring to your gaming experience. All I can say is that it's something that I have never experienced before in any other game. If I may quote another reviewer who put it better than I can:
Mrwasted said, "AC adds a whole new element to gaming, interactive spectating."
Any attempt of mine to further explain what this "interactive spectating" actually feels like would certainly not do the game justice. All I can tell you is that you should not hesitate to play this game. I assure you if you put Assassin's Creed in your 360 it will take you with it.
