Assassin’s Creed is the next-gen game developed by Ubisoft Montreal that will redefine the action genre. While other games claim to be next-gen with impressive graphics and physics, Assassin’s Creed merges technology, game design, theme, and emotions into a world where you instigate chaos and become a vulnerable, yet powerful, agent of change.
The setting is 1191 AD. The Third Crusade is tearing the Holy Land apart. You, Altair, intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict.
You are an Assassin, a warrior shrouded in secrecy and feared for your ruthlessness. Your actions can throw your immediate environment into chaos, and your existence will shape events during this pivotal moment in history.
- Be an Assassin: Master the skills, tactics, and weapons of history’s deadliest and most secretive clan of warriors. Plan your attacks, strike without mercy, and fight your way to escape.
Realistic and responsive environments: Experience a living, breathing world in which all your actions have consequences. Crowds react to your moves and will either help or hinder you on your quests.
Action with a new dimension – total freedom: Eliminate your targets wherever, whenever, and however. Stalk your prey through richly detailed, historically accurate, open-ended environments. Scale buildings, mount horses, blend in with crowds. Do whatever it takes to achieve your objectives.
Relive the epic times of the Crusades: Assassin’s Creed immerses you in the realistic and historical Holy Land of the 12th century, featuring life-like graphics, ambience, and the subtle, yet detailed nuances of a living world.
Intense action rooted in reality: Experience heavy action blended with fluid and precise animations. Use a wide range of medieval weapons, and face your enemies in realistic swordfight duels.
Next-gen gameplay: The proprietary engine developed from the ground up for the next-gen console allows organic game design featuring open gameplay, intuitive control scheme, realistic interaction with environment, and a fluid, yet sharp, combat mechanic.

As the first in the series obviously its not going to be the most rounded of the games. The biggest issues with this game like having to ride from town to town, and allowing counter attacks to be an automatic "I-WIN" button. It is a great game that is the first chapter of the Assassins Creed book. Obviously if you want the whole story of the series you would want to play this one. It is still a really enjoyable game. But one of those games that after you've played the newer ones in the series you can feel the drag of the aspects they quickly dropped
beautifull starter for the seriesruttenmurf | Nov. 18, 2013 | See all ruttenmurf's reviews »
Assassins creed is a wonderful game were you use skills and stealth to try and assassinate your target. This game still has beautiful graphics and fluent gameplay. I do not really think the graphics have improved much from 1 to 3 anyway. I loved this game because it is set in the crusader period which I find a very interesting historical time. The game makes the perfect combination between realism and fiction. The events have happened but in the game you as an assassin made them happened which feels pretty damn good. I like this game even if it doesn’t an rpg element to it as the 2nd game. If you played the last assassin creed game you are almost obligated to buy this game. Here you can find out where it all started.
The Decent Start to the seriesMPixels | Nov. 18, 2013 | See all MPixels's reviews »
If you haven't heard of this series, I'd be surprised. This game spawned a successful series of murder-them-ups but the first game is slightly different. Whereas in its sequels, you can happily (and easily) fight your way through hordes of enemies without faltering, the missions in AC1 fit the theme better, You stalk your target, finding out the perfect way to sneak into his inner sanctum and slay him before he knows you are there. This is the game's greatest strength and greatest weakness. From an immersion standpoint, it is fantastic to be placed in the shoes of a medieval assassin, stalking his target for the right time to strike. From a gameplay standpoint, it often turns into "Sit on a bench: the videogame". But that doesn't take away from the fact that there's nothing like Assassin's Creed on the market and even the first one, for all its niggling faults, is definitely worth playing
Stereotype, but funny as hellDeltaFixer | Oct. 17, 2013 | See all DeltaFixer's reviews »
Didn't expect much of primarily console game, but after few minutes of playing I was amazed by the scale and look of the game. Until AC I had no idea how amazing can open world game be. Some may say the plot is too simple or obvious, but I found it quite entertaining. The game doesn't force player to hurry up and finish, instead you are free to do whatever the game allows you to do and that is plenty. The only thing that players can really complain about is that after few hours the gameplay becames repetitive.

"Assassin's Creed is a beautiful, exciting experience that will stay with you long after you finish it." - GameSpot. I think it tells you how is that game. I played it long long time ago an dit was my favourite game. It made me feel like assassin. I spend a lot of hours of my life playing this game. Playing and playing. All the time. I think it was kinda sic... but never mind ;D . This game's graphic is pretty cool. I dont feel the soundtrack. I mean i dont hear it.. Maybe because its perfect, maybe because it doesnt have anything special. I wont rate soundtrack because im not sure... Game play is .. nice. I think ubisoft made it really well. I like everything in it. Instead of that you can press move+space+shift and pass whole map wihtout looking on screen. You just have to take care fo water. And thats the only minus. I love plot, it made me search on internet a lot of things that are shown in AC (btw its historical game right? :D ). I recommend it to everyone! :D
