Assassin's Creed ended up as one of the most hyped games of 2007 and to me, 2007 was when my brain matured alot in the gaming world. Hype wrecks games....its not about the player anymore, its about money...end of conversation. A number of games where wrecked in 2007 due to developer's and publishers creating hype (MICROSOFT) and 2 of the top of my head are Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed. Dont let this rant put you off asssassin's creed though, its an okay game.
The story is what makes the game, being as fantastic as always from a Ubisoft game. It takes place during The Crusade's a period of time that's always interested me. The players assume the role of Altair...who is the best character i've ever played as. Even beating the likes of Carl Johnson and Kaim! The player is demoted at the start of the game from the rank of 'Master Assassin' to 'Novice'...as the player progresses it is predictable what's going to happen, yet there is a definate plot twist I assure you. The gameplay, sound and graphics work amazing together. The player can scale almost any scale and attack with an assortment of weapons...the graphic system is absolutely beautfiful and great arabic sound make for a fantastic adventure title that has to be checked out!
