5.5 Gamespot? I am not sure we are playing the same game.
I decided to try Assassins Creed: Bloodlines out. I have had the game for some time, but for some reason, I had never played it. I expected it to be mildly entertaining, but hardly expected it to be a game to capture me so throughly.
I love it. One of the best PSP games I have ever played.
The fights play out wonderfully. The graphics are way better then i expected, and the controls are rather intuitive, I usually end up where I intended, probably about as often as on the console.
My thumb gets a little sore, but then I have never liked the PSP analogue stick. It's crap, and we all know it. Evey game should have the option to switch the function of the D-Pad and the analogue stick. I don't know why they don't.
I find 9/10 PSP games to be a pretty big disappointment, and I expected no less from AC:BL, but wow was I wrong. This game will be in my collection for a long time to come.
