4 Star Review  GameZone - Dec 10, 2007

The assassin did not hesitate to sink his retractable blade into the neck of his dangerous target. It was a calm noon in the market district in Damascus but the killing didn’t go unseen as a passerby screams in horror. Nearby, soldiers hear the woman and suddenly the assassin finds himself being chased across the market as he pushes startled people aside. Around the corner, the assassin spots a haystack and dives in as his pursuers run past him. The assassin is Altair who is on a quest for redemption and to kill those who evil men who wish to enslave those around them. This is Assassin’s Creed for the PlayStation 3 and one of the most interesting games you’ll play this year.

3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 28, 2009

The first game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history. Jerusalem, 1191 AD. The Third Crusade is tearing the Holy Land apart. You are an elite Assassin sent to stop the hostilities by suppressing the powers on both the Crusader and Saracen sides. But as you carry out your missions, a conspiracy begins to unfold. You find yourself tangled up in a conflict that threatens not only the Holy Land, but the entire world. « Nothing is true, everything is permitted » Be an assassin: Plan ... PROS: (1) excellent graphics (2) Free roam enviorment (3) great game play (4) Unique and unlike any other game you will ever play (5) excellent story line ... CONS: (1) Long grinding/grueling process to collect all achievements (Flags, Templars etc) (2) missions all seem to be basicly the same (3) single player only (4) Extremely repetitive. (5) Short Game; 18 hours doing missions only, 40 or so with exploring

Altair Reigns!
5 Star Review   By member UJBL28 - Mar 2, 2008   

Strengths: Awesome Game!

Smooth and easy controls make it fun to run across city rooftops like a silient bad a$$-a$$in with the right amount of balance of stealth, action. In assassin's creed there's lots of stuff to explore, and just when think you've finished your original goals, you can search for the collectible flags and crosses strewn around the cities and countryside. You could probably finish and speed through the game in 20 hours if you're determined and good, but true gamers might spend close to 50 hours finishing every quest and gathering every collectible.

Assassin's Creed
4 Star Review   By member jessmason - Feb 26, 2008   

Strengths: Great graphics, interactive world, slightly educational

Weakness: Repetitive

The graphics in the game are stunning and the characters and structures are quite detailed. You're able to climb almost everything and have free reign in parts of the city to go about and do what wish. It's entertaining to run about climbing and jumping on everything, which is good since that's what you'll spend the majority of your time doing. Each 'chapter' of the game is more or less set up as 'this person is your target', 'go about the city and find information to prepare for your hit', 'kill said person'. With that said, overall the game is very good and will provide a bit of entertainment.

Great Game!
4 Star Review   By member tdesi420 - Feb 21, 2008   

Strengths: Excellent Graphics, Open world environment

Weakness: Repetitive

I bought this game cuz of all the good reviews it got. it was a hard to figure out the controls, but learned after playing the game for a while. Graphics are amazing, the combos and moves are very nice. the only thing they should have done to this game was give it a better storyline with more variety than just saving citizens, eavesdropping, interrogation and informer missions. View points in the game are cool but they get tiring after a little while. otherwise, its a great game!

Great Adventure Game
5 Star Review   By member hellmutt - Jan 27, 2008   

Strengths: Fantastic Graphics, unique gameplay, very interesting plot

Weakness: A bit slow moving at times

I notice the other reviews mention glitches. I haven't seen this myself; perhaps it's because I started playing recently and there's a new game update available online (currently 1.10 when I wrote this). In any event, I find this game fun, the character's motion smooth, the tasks interesting. Some of the extras are a little boring, but that's to be expected from us 100% completists. I solidly recommend this game.

Assassin's Creed (PS3)
4 Star Review   By member chilipito - Dec 29, 2007   

Strengths: Incredible graphics. Fun gameplay.

Weakness: A bit repetitive. Chase sequences a bit drawn out.

Assassin's Creed for the Playstation 3 is a gem. While it probably doesn't live up to its expectations that were set exceedingly high when content was first released, it is still an incredible game. The game is somewhat of a mix of Metal Gear Solid and Prince of Persia, which isn't that surprising as Prince of Persia was also developed by Ubisoft. The game does admittedly get a bit repetitive as you as performing the same tasks to setup each assassination, but they do be increasingly harder the more you do; there are more guards setup to watch you, and the simple ease of getting to your targets aren't quite the same. I personally enjoy the storyline as well, set in an ancient middle east, including even ann old Jerusalem. Assassin's Creed is still a very fine game, and one of the best of the year.

Solid but way overrated....unfortunately
3 Star Review   By member traumeri - Dec 24, 2007   

Strengths: Large and beautifically rendered environment, fun climbing and fighting systems

Weakness: Tedious and repetitive gameplay, fragmented storyline, limited AI, will try your patience

Like most I eagerly awaited this title release and read/watched all the previews. Unfortunately after hours of gameplay I am disappointed. In summary this game has some components of greatness (graphics, open feel of environment, climbing/fighting system, etc.) But these components are not cohesive and the result is gameplay that gets repetitive fast and tries even patient gamers of this genre. It is clear the most effort was spent on rendering the environment and your ability to interact with it. The wall-climbing and pillar-hopping aspect is cool but gets old when you realize that not much more effort was put into these parts of gameplay. If they could have spent more time on developing a more creative storyline and assembly of all the components, then this might have lived up to the hype. If you have been this genre of games, then there is nothing here that will wow you and beg for your return after you turn it off. Once you check out the kingdoms, climbing/jumping/fighting, and the various mission/tasks...this game get old. You repeat the same formula from 1 stage to the next. There are many aspects of this game that will give other game designers great ideas and engines to build on, but as a game product it will be quickly forgotten....

Great Game
5 Star Review   By member dtsai24 - Dec 23, 2007   

Strengths: Gameplay Graphics

Weakness: Repetitive

Great game, very original. Can be boring because you do repetitive missions throughout the game. Ending is stupid, they are going to have a sequel and want you to purchase that too. Worthwhile game.

This game is OK but the producer is...
3 Star Review   By member incredipinoy - Dec 15, 2007   

Strengths: I don't see any strengths.

Weakness: Seem to be laggy. There are so much bug I can easily find.

I just bought this game for $40 on sale. I wish I could get the Limited Edition, so thats the only one that advertised $40 at Frys. When I frst play this game. I really know how to follow the basic during the tutorial. During the mission, I didn't get to kill anyone because I don't know where to start. This game lags me because I have no idea of why I bought this game. I hope I'm waiting for the game to fix those bugs out.

Assassins Creed Review A++
5 Star Review   By member ayobi - Nov 30, 2007   

Strengths: Graphics are Superb, One of the best one I have seen so far in the PS3 Console. Textures and shadows are well develop. AI is pretty good, guards are well aware of their sorroundings. Voice is A+

Weakness: Story is a bit lacking depth, but overall it pulls you in.

This game has A++ Graphics and A+ sound!, If you liked Prince of Persia Series and HITMAN then you will fall for this game. It has several weapon modes like hidden dagger, knives, sword and fist fight. The downsides will be that the missions start to get repetitive, but since the game is open world you can do all the missions on your own pace and change the way you see the game. Is one of the best games outhere so far, so By all means go and Grab a Copy if you love PRINCE OF PERSIA TYPE GAMES!.

The worst, most boring and repetitive game ever made!
1 Star Review   By member chibi_conan - Nov 29, 2007   

Strengths: BIG NONE!

Weakness: The game crashes so you have to turn OFF your PS3 and then back on again.

I freaking waited and waited for this d@mn game and as long as I have waited, disappointment was HUGE! Story is so boring, graphic(from character to background) looks like last gen! The game's suppose to be for PS3, the next gen, High Definition console and graphic looks like outdated(as old as Prince of Persia graphic). I was so displeased, already sold it on eBay!

Possible The Most Waited For Game
4 Star Review   By member xXElementSk8terXx - Nov 13, 2007   

Strengths: It's an open world go where you like kill who you want when you want

Weakness: RPG does not fit this game,may seem like your doing the same thing over and over again like Oblivion

I haven't played this game yet but I know I will enjoy it as I'm a pro gamer and I like games like this where they don't force you into always doing missions when you want to do a mission you go but if you don't then you can run around
