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.

An ambitious attempt by Ubisoft in making an Open World adventure in which you use stealth in every way possible in order to achieve your goals. Its centered around two groups, the Assassins and the Templars, both wish to achieve the advancement of Mankind but have radically different ways of approaching to it. The Assassins wish Mankind to have the freedom to choose its way to success while also encountering failure and learning from it while the Templars believe in Order, they want to control Mankind and lead them to a successful path according to their desires.
You're Desmond miles, a Taxi Driver in the present day, captured by the Templars who want to access his memory fragments in order to reverse the past of his Ancestors. You play the memory of Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, a Syrian Assassin who is one of the most skilful of the bunch.
As an Assassin, you approach each and every objective through Stealth, it is your biggest weapon, you hide in the shadows while trying to keep the Tempars from derailing keep Mankind from its path. You have an artillery of weapons including swords, knives, poison darts, hidden blades that you can use to silently assassinate enemies without them knowing. You have special abilities that help your six sense to know that which path is to be followed but first you must skilfully make your own path by climbing the tallest buildings and getting the highest view of the world before you make your next move. You have the ability to Climb up to almost any building you see fit. All of these gameplay features makes playing Assassin's Creed a ton of fun.
Graphically, the game is gorgeous and looks stunning while traversing through its wonderfully crafted world. You make your way through Towns and Cities of people doing their own stuff, a great technical achievement in the past Generation. The PC version supported all the greatest graphical features of that time and was the latest game in the market to utilize Directx 10.1.
Soundtrack is beautifully composed and is a great treat to listen to.
In the end, its a solid start to one of the best game series of all time, it helped setup the foundation of multiple games in the series and a whole new playground for game developers to play in. History is Assassin's Creed's Playground. I totally would recommend this game to any stealth fan as its extremely cheap to buy these days.
Be an assassin and enjoy it.CARLEST | June 28, 2014 | See all CARLEST's reviews »
First of all, this game is a masterpiece. It allows you to be an assassin, which is just super awesome! I really enjoyed it myself so I can recommend this game to anyone, even to my enemy. I enjoyed it even when it had bugs, which is weird but true. Some doctor/scientist catches you and commands you to go back to past. He wants you to get back some "piece" of your memory. Really good is that there is some special ability when you do some things right, so you can see who is your enemy, ally or just civilian. This game has most impressive weapon, the hidden blade. This weapon made me to buy this game. Still, I wouldn't recommend this game to low-end PC users because it would be really laggy for them.
