Assassin's Creed is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history.
Assassin's Creed merges technology, game design, theme, and emotions into a world where you instigate chaos and become a vulnerable, yet powerful, agent of change.
Be an Assassin: Master the skills, tactics, and weapons of history's deadliest and most secretive clan of warriors. Plan your attacks, strike without mercy, and fight your way to escape.
Realistic and Responsive Environments: Crowds react to your moves and will either help or hinder you on your quests.
Action with a New Dimension - Total Freedom: Eliminate your targets wherever, whenever, and however. Stalk your prey through richly detailed, historically accurate, open-ended environments. Scale buildings, mount horses, blend in with crowds. Do whatever it takes to achieve your objectives.
Relive the Epic Times of the Crusades: Assassin's Creed immerses you in the realistic and historical Holy Land of the 12th century, featuring life-like graphics, ambience, and the subtle, yet detailed nuances of a living world.
Intense Action Rooted in Reality: Experience heavy action blended with fluid and precise animations. Use a wide range of medieval weapons, and face your enemies in realistic swordfight duels.
Next-Gen Gameplay: The proprietary engine developed from the ground up for the next-gen console allows organic game design featuring open gameplay, intuitive control scheme, realistic interaction with environment, and a fluid, yet sharp, combat mechanic.

Of coarse I obviously wont be the first to say that this game is has a long dreary story-line, but it's not that bad, people you ask may say is repetitive but there is a reason why Assassins Creed is an X-box 360 classic, as it follows the life of Desmond Miles reliving the memories Altair. The game has it's faults like all game, but the gameplay is amazing travelling through medieval based cities. The combat is lacking something and the population is lifeless like but for OZgamers low price it defiantly is worth buying.

Assassinâ€™s Creed, what can I say about this game that hasnâ€™t been said before? Maybe that I really donâ€™t see all the fuss, it was okay I didnâ€™t finish. The reason I only give it its rating is because itâ€™s repetitive, bland, and just frustrating, not challenging just frustrating. Not a whole lot happens in this game that you canâ€™t see in a 5 minute video on YouTube. Thereâ€™s not much to say about a boring game, whatâ€™s disappointing about it maybe? Well a lot of things, itâ€™s just extremely repetitive and not the good kind, like Animal Crossing. This is bland and boring.
I donâ€™t know how this game got the money to make a sequel let alone get so popular.

Upon this game release, the game offered an innovated game play and story experience. Told through a series of memory re-enactments, you play the part of a fallen from grace assassin trying to earn back his place. In an open world environment, you use your stealth and parkour skills to find and assassinate your targets. Despite the innovations, the game play can become a little bit stale in the long run.

Truly a great game, but it was kind of empty in content. There wasn't much to do outside of the missions. The only things I could find where to save citizens and roam around flags in the cities, but the story was what kind of made up for what the game in general lacked!

This was an innovative release that allowed you to be a time-travelling voyager to the past to relive the memories [through gameplay] of an elite and very deadly assassin. This game is like parkour [free-running] on steriods where your character in the past, Altair is adept at scaling even the most challenging walls, buildings, towers and castle walls, sprinting across rooftops, diving into haybales or employing other means of subterfuge to avoid detection and dispatching enemies with lightening speed only to disappear into the shadows leaving chaos in his wake. A truly innovative franchise - Assassins Creed 1 set the tone for the range to expand after it adding new and improved features. But the original is unmissable for understanding the story and immersing yourself in the shadowy world of the ancient past. The game not only combines action and fantastic fight scenes but death-defying and narrow escapes, a massive open-world with thousands of roofs, alleys, courts, squares, streets, pylons, across major cities and open countryside and mountains, the ability to recruit help from fellow-minded denizens intent on helping Altair complete his missions, unique puzzles that can be found on landmark buildings, a historical encyclopaedia with facts as you explore the sprawling city, a massive amount of collectables and some serious stealth. An amazing game that only got better with the sequel. It does get repetitive as only a dozen or so objectives are available for Altair to complete, especially with the size it is and this is probably the only let down with the game, which part 2 ammended. Sprinting from roof to street to strike some unsuspecting villager or guard like a cobra and stalk off takes a long time to get old however ;)
