Game description

"Assassin's Creed is a beautiful, exciting experience that will stay with you long after you finish it." - GameSpot

"_ offers a unique mix of action and exploration that deserves to be experienced._" - IGN

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.

Great characters, a good story and confusing controls.

Assassin's Creed is a pretty fun game but it does get a little repetitive as a lot of the missions or quests end up being the same thing over and over again. The controls are confusing at first as there is two different profile modes. When you're in the low profile mode you'll gently push anyone in your walking path out of the way and attempt to blend in so the guards will notice you less. The high profile mode lets you do less acceptable things like climb buildings and allows you to run but you'll knock anyone in your way over so you'll be getting chased by guards often if they see you do these things. You may end up getting lost early on in the game even with a map. Graphically the game still looks good. The soundtrack and voice acting is well done. If you've ever played any of the later games in the series then you'll probably notice some of the game play improvements they've made with each new game like being able to swim, having less repetitive missions and more fun combat but don't let that stop you from playing this game for the story because the Altair story is one of the best in the entire series.

grandioso juego

el juego en si es bueno, es mas o menos lo que vendria siendo prince of persia, tiene buenas graficas para los a?os que tiene, ambientacion espetacular en el oriente medio, muy buena historia quede por si engancha, por algo ya tiene sus diferentes entregas aunque un poco da?adas por tanto uso.

Bad controls

Didn't get that far playing the game because the controls were ridiculously bad and confusing to me.The missions I played were also boring to play and didn't progress much story wise.

First Game of the series

Assassin's Creed is the first game of the series and the first big game I played.I really loved it, from the story line to the visuals.It is really good. The story follows Altair, an Assassin and his realizations about the Assassin's Creed and their principles.The visuals are good.The best part of the game though is the parkour. The gameplay is fast paced, complete 2-3 missions in each area before completing the main mission.The other missions are optional, but it is best to complete them for a better experience. Try it out if you like Action/Adventure games.

the beginning of a legendary series

one of the best games ive ever played on pc. the quests are quite redundant but still really good. this game is worth every penny.
