Assassin’s Creed is about Altaïr, an assassin stripped of his rank, to get back his tools and rank, he sets out to take down the Templars. Here is our Assassin’s Creed Review.
Assassin’s Creed is developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game came out on November 13, 2007, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
The story is about Altaïr, looking to redeem his ranks in the Assassin Order after an assassination gone wrong. During this game, you don’t actually meet many memorable characters or enemies, other than a handful, and while the game only focuses on 3 main characters, it still does an amazing job telling the story. It has twists and turns but it does feel very dated with how the story is told and it lacks any interesting storytelling.
The 2nd part of the story focuses on Desmon Miles in the modern world captured by Abstergo, the modern-day Templars. They stick you in the animus to see Altaïr’s memories so they can find the current location of the artifact Altaïr found at the beginning of the game. This part of the story is a bit better, but just like the main game, the lack of proper cutscenes kinda hurt the game more than it helps.
Assassin’s Creed’s gameplay aged like fine wine and still plays just as well if you are used to the modern iterations of the game, but at the same time, it’s a bit more basic and clunky compared to even the 2nd game in the series. Sometimes jumps can feel off or you dont make jumps the right way just because the controls are a bit stiffer than you might be used to from the newer games. The same goes for the free running, they give you a few options to lose the enemies, but this is also a bit limited, and due to the small alleyways, it’s a lot harder to lose the enemies on your trail than you think.
Visually the game aged really well on the Series X, If I didn’t know any better I would have thought it was an early-era PS4 title instead of an early PS3 one, but that is of course also due to the upscaling Xbox has done. If you play on PC, the game also looks a lot better than the original versions. There are still of course things that feel off due to the age of it, but the scenery and main characters just look great in the main part of the game. On the modern side, it just looks terrible for some reason.
