This game is about what I expected.

Summary: Very simple. To the point. Not much story line. Despite this, however, I had a good little time playing it. I'm a fan of the normal AC games and as simple as they are, this game is SIMPLE. You have five upgrades that come from obtaining blue dots showing you the path to the end of the game.
Summary: Truly an amazing game from a production viewpoint. Not many games that were taken this seriously on the NDS. I'm sure it was meant for DS gamers wanting a more "mature" game. If curiosity of whether the DS version is superior to iPod version brought you here, it is a matter of taste. NDS version has rougher graphics, but a physical game pad. The iPod version has much smoother graphics and even voice acting(DS game doesn't), so it has higher production values.
Fun game for all ages....Story Line Concept, not a big fan

Summary: This is a fun game to play. My three year old son has really enjoyed beating up the bad guys with his sword. It has some reading, but it really isn't necessary to be able to read, since you just follow the arrow to where you need to go. He has really enjoyed it so far. The story line is that you are basically on the other side of the crusades and the Templers are the "bad guys". So you are an assassin killing off the Templar.
Summary: Very good, better than i expected from a handheld game, obviously does not measure up to original, but much better than expected, good gameplay, interesting plot, if a bit sketchy, some glitches, but nothing major, very good game over-all
Summary: The good: - Side scroller with Prince of Persia / Tomb Raider type of gameplay. Good level design and good graphics. The bad: - Controls are just horrible. Altair hardly ever does what you want him to do. Jumping from the wall-rope anywhere is an exercise in frustration. - Wasted opportunity. Yes, this is DS, it does not have the graphics power of a console, but still... Is this the best they could do with this license? - Game is very short.
Summary: Assassin's Creed makes its way to the DS, and provides some solid fun despite a hiccup or two. Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles is a prequel of sorts as you play as deadly assassin Altair and take on some Price of Persia-esque platforming gameplay. Despite the 3-D environments, Assassin's Creed is more in tune of being a side scroller, which makes the game feel all the more linear.
Summary: I bought this game hoping to find a challenging adventure, but what I found was a rather easy game overall, with very easy fights (it is almost impossible to die in a sword fight, only some "bosses" will challenge you a bit more). I am an adult, so maybe I should have looked for more reviews: I think this game will entertain kids and it might not be suitable for children (due to the amount of gruesome killings), but if you are from the Space Invaders generation, maybe...
