Assassin's Creed is one of the more successful action and adventure franchises in recent years. This first installment offers you a totally absorbing story with a huge map to explore.
Assassin's Creed sees you as Altaïr, a member of a secret society who murders Templars in cold blood to prevent them from ruling over the world. Your ability to run and jump, as well as to hide and go stealthily when necessary will prove crucial in the large variety of missions you’ll be assigned in Assassin’s Creed.
The map in Assassin's Creed is divided into three main cities: Damascus, Acre and Jerusalem. In each of them you’ll find a handful of missions that follow the main plot, and many other secondary missions such as gathering flags or climbing up viewing points.
In the long run, the main drawback in Assassin's Creed is repetition: the game’s missions are so similar that the gameplay becomes mechanical and sometimes even boring. In any case, Assassin's Creed is still an appealing game, with awesome graphics and a historical background we rarely see in other titles.
In spite of becoming repetitive towards the end of the game, Assassin's Creed is a great adventure with an interesting historical background.
