Assassin's Creed

Postby fantomreaper » Fri Jan 18, 2008 9:06 pm

Beautiful medieval game based on the same game engine as the upcoming Splinter Cell: ConViction. The freeform fighting system makes this game a refreshing change to all the FPS's(Haze, Crysis, etc...). A PC Edition is getting released in early 2008.

The game takes place primarily in a kingdom consisting of four main cities: Jerusalem, Acre, Damascus and Masyaf, the assassins' stronghold. Each city features a highly detailed environment populated by many people of different types, and as the player interacts with his/her environment, the people around Altaïr respond in logical and predictable ways. For example, Altaïr can climb buildings, causing people to gather around and comment on his unusual behavior. This in turn can attract the unwanted attention of nearby guards, who may then choose to attack him.

The player is made aware of how noticeable Altaïr is to enemy guards as well as the current state of alert in the local area. To perform many of the assassinations and other tasks, the player must consider the use of both "low profile" and "high profile" commands. "Low profile" commands allow Altaïr to blend into nearby crowds, gently pass by other citizens, or other non-threatening tasks that can be used to hide and reduce the alertness level. "High profile" commands are more noticeable, and including running, scaling the sides of buildings to climb to higher vantage points, and attacking foes; performing these actions at certain times may raise the local area's awareness level.

Saying too much more would be spoiling the game :)

Sounds good, but it's BS that they delayed the PC release.

Personally, I was rather disappointed in the gameplay. Storyline was great, and surprisingly accurate as far as the history of the third crusade goes. However, you just do the same thing over and over again in each city and each district...rinse and repeat. Would have been nice to see a far more diverse set of missions that perhaps changed with each city/district. Even the flag gathering, templar eliminating side quests are extremely repetitive.

Gameplay may not be so great, but it was at least worth playing through once for the storyline. Really no replay value, though.

I played about an hour of it, and the controls were just terrible on the PC version. Maybe if I owned an Xbox I'd give it another shot, but I just couldn't stand the controls for the PC version.
