Summary: great storyline, only reason i played the game in the first place. The gameplay is repetitive, the melee combat is the worst i've ever seen, you stand around and wait for an opportunity to counter, only when given a window determined by the game, you can't simply do the actions yourself at any given time. the climbing is horrible because it is done for you so you can't actually choose which and where you'll land or grab.
Summary: I have loved Prince of Persia-Sands of Time games on PS2 and since this game looked similar and some people were speaking highly of it, I decided to give it a shot. After finishing the game and unlocking >80% of the secret emails, here is what I thought of it. PROS. ACROBATIC ABILITIES: Like in Prince of Persia games, this is one of my favorite aspect of this game. Climbing buildings, jumping from roof to roof, taking leap of faith etc. can be real fun.
Beautiful game, certainly not fun after the first 15 minutes...

Summary: It's been a long time since I've been this annoyed with a game. I had originally played Assassin's Creed 2 and was loving it, so I stopped playing it in order to pick up Assassin's Creed and get back history going in to the second one. I regret having done this, now, as the first AC is nothing like the 2nd. Okay, here is a typical day in the life of AC. You take an impossibly long horse ride through the country where every single guard is chasing you.
Summary: I was pretty disappointed in this game. I was lucky enough to buy it after the 2nd game had already come out, so it only cost me a couple of bucks, but it really is a pretty mediocre game. The graphics are awesome, but all you really do is climb towers, get in a couple of fights, run, and assassinate your primary target for that particular mission. You will keep doing these things on every single level..
Summary: There was alot of hype surrounding this game when it came out and I bought into it. I watched the trailer and read reviews and was just blown away because the graphics, the gameplay, and the whole concept just looked so awesome. People were saying this was going to be a freeform game like Grand Theft Auto, a "medieval Grand Theft Auto". Well, nothing could be further from the truth.
Summary: This game is extremely entertaining if you enjoy stealth games. After some practice I was able to elude guards and disappear quickly into the crowd, or dispatch them using a well made combat system. If I'd played only until I reached the last assassination target, I would be rating this game a 4. Upon reaching the next to last stage, however, all sound originating from my character disappeared. I thought this odd and annoying, but not unplayable.
Summary: Well i love adventure games (heavy rain/uncharted etc.) so i thought i'd give this a try for only £10! So it arrived and i was chuffed until i started playing, for me it didnt hook me in and dragged on abit :( I only managed to play for an hour, i really didnt "feel" the game and ended up selling it to Game. But this is just my personal opinion, im sure many others loved this game!
Summary: Okay, so the graphics are fabby. And when your character climbs the viewpoints you might actually suffer from vertigo. But honestly, if I have one more begger in my face demanding "just a few coins" I'm going to go from city to city killing them all! The same goes for the cretans who just punch you becauser they are nuts. I mean, surely the game designers could have come up with something more imaginative to break the repetition. Repetition. Repetition. Different city.
Summary: Great at first but gets really repetitive quite quickly. Am currently playing assassin's creed 2 and it is light years better - one of the best games I've ever played, and I've played a lot. So my advice is to save up for AC2 rather than buying this.
