Part 1: Assassin's Creed

So, after a few days that I'm sucked in Assassin's Creed: Brootherhood (I love sandboxing!!!) I decided to write something about it. Still cannot write a review of the game because I haven't finish it but I can start by writing something like a prelude in two parts by writing a few words about the previous games.




The first game starts as you, Desmond Miles, is being held by a corporation (Abstergo industries) and forced to relive memories of your ancestors stored and coded on your DNA. The ancestor you play as in the first game is Altair on the holy lands on the Crusades era. It starts as Altair, a member of the Assassin's, after failing to a mission gets demoted and re-trained all over. Soon it becomes clear that Abstergo Industries tries throught Desmond to recover the location where a very powerful artifact is kept.



The first installment was met mixed reactions. Most of the people liked it but felt it had more potential. The addictive parkour-meets-stealth gameplay and the very interesting story is what made this game shine. The ways you do the Assassination feels so outrageous and so rewarding at the same time there is no way you can hate it! Also graphic wise, the Crusader-era Jerusalem looks just stunning. More important the cities look alive! The people go on with their everyday lives, the talk, walk, yell, you feel like walking the streets of a real city.



Ofcourse the game had problems, they weren't as major though. The most of the people's complaints were about how short it was (about 10 hours, if I remember correctly) and, because they saw the potential and the possibilities, how better it would be. Overall I loved this game, I loved its gameplay, how smooth you'd perform all those unbelievable moves and kills without being that easy.

Well, we just had to wait and see if the second game would be that good...



To be continued...

  1. I played the 2nd part on xbox360 and quit it after an hour. It is so boring. You run through the town with infinite endurance, jump, jump, run walls up, jump, fall 30m deep still alive, run again, climb, run.
    That sux.

  3. They're both really good games. The first did get pretty repetitive though.

  6. The 2 followups are much much better but it's worth to play the first game to see how the story goes imo. It's not that big anyway.

  16. Assassins Creed is awesome. I didnt think Brotherhood was all that great, but it was still fun. I cant wait until you eventually play the whole game as Desmond and play as a modern day assassin.

    Now following.
