Lets start by saying this is the most beautiful game I have ever played when it comes to graphics and landscape. The question is; how long will this feature keep you in awe? Well, to be honest, for a while.
However, Assassins Creed did not live up to even half of its potential! The game is unbelievably repetative! Not to mention how incredibly boring it is riding through the countryside for a good fifteen minutes on your way to each mission! The gameplay in a few words is half ass! There are so many different areas where this game could have been expanded but didn't.
If your a huge prince of persia fan, this is your game. Chalk full of acrobatics! But unfortunately that isn't enough for me, especially when it comes to a next gen game. My guess is that all of these "A" reviews were written within the first couple days that they had the game. I'd love to hear what they have to say now!
