The first game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history.

Jerusalem, 1191 AD. The Third Crusade is tearing the Holy Land apart. You are an elite Assassin sent to stop the hostilities by suppressing the powers on both the Crusader and Saracen sides. But as you carry out your missions, a conspiracy begins to unfold. You find yourself tangled up in a conflict that threatens not only the Holy Land, but the entire world. « Nothing is true, everything is permitted »

  • Be an assassin: Plan your attacks, strike without mercy, and fight your way to escape.
  • Realistic and responsive environments: Every action has consequences. Crowds react to your moves, and will either help or hinder you on your quests.
  • Action with total freedom: Eliminate your targets wherever, whenever, and however. Do whatever it takes to achieve your objectives.

I played this game until its completion and was extremely satisfied with the entire experience. The cities and entire world created was totally solid and the animation was just incredible. I still loved just running around cities climbing buildings, going on the horses, fighting enemies.. just everything. It's unfortunate that Ubisoft couldn't take the fantastic fundamentals of the game and turn them onto rote repetitive tasks that get boring after the 4th "steal a package" mission.

If they just took their freeform gameplay and made an actual free form GAME around it, then it'd be one of the greatest games of all time. As it is, it's a fantastically playing game that becomes a love it or hate it kind of thing depending on how annoyed you are with the missions.
