What do these ratings mean?

Assassin is a word that we have come to know as sniper rifles and tons of cool spy gear but this game elevates that to remind us that even our most distant ancestors had assassins too. Its story line can be shaky at times but overall I think they were more imaginative than if they had just held the game in that time by using the Animus. The Animus feature also alows the gamer to have an ongoing suspicion and has a continuing question of who is good and who is evil. As the game goes on, you get more and more questions that peak your suspicion. Obviously, as every human being who has played this game will tell you, the graphics are arguably the best in any game ever made. The only other problem is that the game at times can get repeditive with certain activities including:

  • Climbing to viewpoints
  • Pickpocketing
  • Eavesdropping
  • Interrogations
  • Running from and killing guards
  • Getting in and out of the Animus

Overall the game is absolutely wonderful and I enjoyed playing it very much as a gamer and hope to see other games follow in its footsteps and be more imaginative in the storyline.
