If you play Assassin's Creed for an hour, you will probably think it's a fantastic game. But as Assassin's progresses, its dual storylines and repetitive quests begin to grow tiresome. There are so many great individual elements, but they are lost among the myriad of poor decisions from Ubisoft Montreal.

3.5 out of 5 - Gamespy

Instead of a true stealth engine, you have awkward "hide spots" to accommodate the free roaming. Combat is either too easy or too hard, lacking the brilliance of a dedicated action title. And the free-roaming, bound as it is to mission objectives that would be fine in a more linear game, is just unsatisfying. Each element of the game is individually interesting, but as a whole the package feels incomplete and patchwork more than innovative.
I love Assassin's creed, it a fun and detailed game with a storyline that ties into your progress in the game. It would be nice if there was a little less repitition, but no game is perfect.
The Assassin's Creed series has really developed into great games. This first game was just a bit too repetitive. There was no variation in moving from town to town or mission to mission. I think the developers realized this and addressed it wonderfully in the later games. I gave this a 3 out of 5 but I think the later titles are more 4 or 5 out of 5 games.
