    People are split, but generally-

    - The investigation missions are easy but repetitive
    - The assassination missions are fun
    - Free Running is perfect
    - The environment design is amazing
    - Combat is split, a lot think it's great a lot don't

    I love Assassin's Creed, it's my favorite game (That I've played) so far this Gen. I enjoyed all the missions and exploring the cities. I love the combat and the assassinations. Free running across Damascus rooftops while being chased by 8 sword wielding guards is so much fun.

    There are plenty of people who didn't like it, though. So like I said, people are split.

    The only thing I didn't really like about the game was that once it's over.. it's over.

    Don't get me wrong, I liked the ending.. i'm talking about replay value.
    So unless you like collecting flags, yeah.

    But everything else was incredible.
    Graphics, story, controls.. it's all there.

    I agree with geo, free running is not only spot on.. but damn is it fun.

    All in all, play it and form your own opinion. But if you're asking.. I loved it.

    Great game...Very repetitive. Nothing changes from the first mission, except getting a few new weapons/upgrades as you play through the game.

    Worth playing though, as it does have a 'wow factor'. Free Running was done amazingly. Controls were done well, and the fighting was also done well, and was great once mastered.

    I got bored towards the end though, but still look forward to seeing how he story played out.

    *SPOILER ALERT*


    I hope Assassins Creed 2 is set in the future, in a futuristic city, and you play as the guy held under captive.

    Couldn't have said it better.

    I think its a game worth playing regardless. Its deff one of those next gen games you HAVE to play. As Geo said, i think its the best game that iv played this generation, thats not to say its without flaws, but the visuals are absolutely stunning and the game play just works. Theres also a really cool story told throughout the game. I think everyone should have it in their collection. Its a great start to what looks to be a stunning saga.

    I would not mind a slightly more modern day one (not 2 but maybe for 3 or 4) Mainly because the rooftop running scene in Bourne Ultimatum is fantastic and really feels like Assassin's Creed with guns. But I want some more olden times locations. Like you said Medieval times would be great I wouldn't know which cities though.


    A real modern day one seems really hard.. How could you have AC in like NYC? you couldn't jump from roof to roof. There are a lot of heigh differences.

    I'm pretty sure Assassin's Creed 2 will, at least partially, be set during Altair's times. I think it's fairly obvious you'll be visiting all of those locations that were revealed at the end of the game.

    Also I wouldn't be surprised if you had assassination missions set in the future with Altair's ancestor in some of AC 2 or 3. It just seems like a natural progression for the series.

    I liked it, definitely a quality title I could spend plenty of time just running around the city. Love going on the rooftops and either knifing guards in the back or using a throwing knife on them. Nothing quite like killing someone on the roof in just the right spot to have him fall off and hearing the screams of people below.

    You should have asked before you bought it. If you were to ask me, I'd say just rent it. By the time you beat it, you'll probably already be bored with it, and there's no replay value at all.

    The game is VERY repetitive and you dont have to waste time saving citizens bc u never really need them anyway all you have to do is leap rooftops. I didnt like the game but hey thas jus my opinion and I did play it right after I beat mass effect so that might have scued my opinion coming from an epic story to a bland one

    Saving the citizens give you more places to hide, easy access to guarded areas and people to grab any pursuers.

    It's an amazing game...However, i normally play it for about 30-45 minutes due to it's repetitive nature. The environmental graphics are absolutely stunning.
