Assassin’s Creed

Assassin's_Creed_cover

This game is one of the reasons I got a PS3 (the reason is Mass Effect…which ironically I don’t have yet). I’d seen a friend play parts of the later games, and liked what I heard about the series, so I gave it a whirl. I’m very glad I did.

I hear the later games have more variety to the gameplay, but I still liked this game. Yes, there is a definite pattern you follow: go to a town, climb the viewpoints, investigate, assassinate. I think if the game had been any longer, it would have gotten tedious, but as it was, the stakes increased enough each time that I was never really bored. And the plot “on the outside” was engaging enough to keep me going. I also liked the historical nods. This game made me feel smart and cultured.

Already I can tell that this game is just the tip of the iceberg, and I can’t wait to see what happens in later games. I’m especially hoping for more from the female knight we encountered briefly. That can’t be all we get!
