Assassin's Creed: Altair's Bogus Journey is more like it.

If you can't tell from that paragraph, Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles (AC:AC, I hope that was unintentional on Gameloft/Ubi's part) is a plan, flat out BAD game. It is mercifully short so those that feel in love with its big brother on the PS3/X360 can suffer through it so that any reference made to it in the future can be understood.
Ubisoft fast tracked this game once the success was determined of the next-gen AC and it shows. Uber-frustrating parts that should have been remedied through some thorough QA, terrible enemy AI and a combat system so broken, you can defeat any number of enemies by spamming the same move over and over.
Without spoiling anything except the sales of this game, Altair is featured but you hardly get to know him due to a lack of character development. You do meet one or two characters that could possibly play a part but will need a full reintroduction into the time line it really doesn't matter if you play this game.
Now that my little diversion into masochistic video game playing is finished, I can go back to playing games that actually are GOOD.
