    Review :: Assassin's Creed - Xbox 360

    If ever you needed an example of why you shouldn’t get carried away with hype, it’s Assassin's Creed. I’m not questioning the fact that Ubisoft’s Montreal studio has created a marvellous graphical spectacle, but the movie-set façade can’t hide the fact that the game begins to deteriorate the more you play it and after a few hours even the stunning backdrop begins to get tiresome.

    Re: Review :: Assassin's Creed - Xbox 360

    I have to agree, I'm probably about 2/3rds of the way through the game and i'm struggling to keep the interest levels going. The only things that are kinda keeping me playing are the achievements, but that's hardly a good sign.

    I must say the first few hours had a few jaw-dropping moments, but since I got the hang of counter attacking and figured out a half decent technique for the free-running it's all stayed pretty much the same. Where I used to take my time and be nice and stealthy I now find myself running between objectives as it doesn't really matter if you get spotted, it takes no time at all to lose the guards.

    The first few hours were wicked though! :S

    Pretty much how I feel Jamie. Almost all the way through it now, but I feel like I'm trying to complete it for the sake of completing it, and to get the most out of my purchase. Was a good game at first, but Ubisoft really did screw up on the objectives and actions you can do further on in the game.

    i am only a couple of hours into it as i only got it 2 daysago but so far i am loving it.

    you can see that they based the climbing/free roaming on the controls used in prince of persia as the running up walls and jumping back to your death was very common in that game also.

    have only assassinated one or two people have been busy doing the viewpoints and save the citizen

    leap of faith is superb and my 3 yr old son loves watching it

    all in all i'd say a good game but i feel it will get repetitive as i go on

    I've played on it at a friends, and to be honest, I wasn't that impressed. I imagined something much better! The plot is a bit too loose if you ask me.
