This game is based a long time ago. It is set in 1191 during
crusade, where you are an assassin in the Holy Lands. It was hyped
up a lot before its release, but does it impress?
This game is
really enjoyable, and combines both stealth and action, while the story line
is good because it has lots of little twists which Iím not going to give
away here. The majority of the story is set in three cities in the Holy
land; Acre, Damascus and Jerusalem, and you play a character called Altair
who has to assassinate certain key public figures based upon his masterís
orders. You donít get told exactly where to find your targets, and so you
must follow various leads, listen in on secret conversations, follow people,
pickpocket them, and on occasions beat information out of them! The early
missions are fairly easy, but soon get harder once the city guards start to
four weapons are his fists, a hidden blade, a sword and throwing knives. My
favourite weapons are the throwing knives because you can kill a target from
a long distance away, and so donít have to get up too close where you put
yourself in more danger.
cities are really detailed and open. You can move about virtually anywhere,
through the streets and market places, climbing up buildings and running
across rooftops, and this helps to make the game more fun.
Unfortunately this game seriously lacks a good ending, as just as you think
you are getting to the bottom of the story, it ends. You discover most of
the games secrets, and then it ends, right when you are in the middle of
finding out everything. Despite the letdown at the end, the game is
enjoyable, and so I hope there is a sequel.
impressive graphics here, in fact probably the best graphics for a PS3 game
Iíve seen. A huge amount of detail has been put into the cities, and they
definitely donít disappoint. At street level there are hundreds or people
wandering around and the building detail is superb, while the views from the
rooftops across the cities are excellent.
there is not much to say about the sound, itís still great. All weapons
sound different while the voice acting and the city background sounds are
problem with this game is that itís not very long lasting. After you
complete the game you are so angry with the ending that you donít want to
turn it on again. Aside from the main storyline you can collect flags from
various locations across the game world, but I didnít really enjoy that part
of the game.
produced an excellent game, and there is little wrong with it. Unfortunately
the one key problem is a fairly big problem. The general gameplay and
storyline are good, and the graphics are superb, itís just that the game is
over a little too quickly and has a confusing ending.
