I finally managed to complete Assassin's Creed only moments ago. I've had it in my collection for sometime, but I just did not get around to finishing it until I spent the last three days playing it to death. I was always close to the finish, but so many other titles came my way, that this was always pushed aside.
While it is a good game, I really did have a hard time with the controls. I noticed that a lot of other people also had this problem, so I didn't feel too bad. There is a lot of great potential for future titles, so I'll be eager to see what happens next. While I played it on the PS3, this is a game that needs to be played on the 360. Not because of the graphics, but because of those stupid flags throughout the game. They are useless in the PS3 version, but at least you get Acheivement Points for the 360. I doubt I'd play this again on the 360, but anyone who was thinking about trying this needs to play this on that console instead of the PS3.
I posted my review of the game both here and on my regular blog. While I too have a GB account (finalkross), I don't think I'll post review of older games there. Maybe my reviews of titles made in 2008, but I think posting them already on two blogs is enough. Take a look, if you like it, approve it. If you hate my review, give me the thumbs down...I can take it.
