This review is from: Assassin's Creed (Video Game)
I realize I'm coming very late to the reviewing party on this game, and other people have already said pretty much everything I have to say about it. I just feel compelled to add my rating to theirs because I was looking forward to this game so much. It's a great concept, it's absolutely gorgeous (really the best part of the game is just moving through the cities), and it has spots of real greatness. There's just too much time between those spots.
Really, I think I would have liked this game a lot more if I could have just run for more than ten paces without being attacked by guards. I was looking forward to the stealth aspect, but it's a sandbox world where you're pretty much always in stealth mode. Turns out stealth without objectives (other than "Get to the next city so the actual game part can start") is just moving slowly.
I've heard the sequel is better, so I guess I'll check that one out.
