Did You Know?


As a joke, the game designers hid the image of Optimus Prime (Transformers) on certain buildings as an Easter Egg. The image appears as two boarded up windows above a triple shuttered window and can be spotted in more than one city on a number of buildings. See more »


Informant: Altair, can you lend a hand? Perhaps a blade?

User Reviews

Excellent idea for an excellent video game.
3 September 2013 | by (Deadwood) – See all my reviews

A rare beauty of this game just tickled the inner thigh of my brain when I first saw the trailer for this game. First I thought I can't play this, I don't have a proper machine for this. But, years later I bought a new, proper machine, and I got this game. And f**k me! No, scratch that fu*k me sideways that was a brutal experience. That was definitely one of the most beautiful games I have ever played. Perhaps, the best thing I like, is the FACT that the game is based upon real historical events and research. Finally, an educational video game, that makes you want to read a BOOK! To do a little research yourself. So, we are going to talk about this special stuff here. First of all graphics holy sh*t! They are awesome! Greatly done graphics. The sound effects are great, visually, the game is very, very beautiful. The landscapes the characters (characters visually and their personality, also), the way they created Damascus and Jerusalem, that was impressive! Music score was good, very atmospheric, fits perfectly in the game. The story is good, I don't know how precise is, when it comes to the historical events, but it's up to you to do a research. Now, you are an assassin (a word that comes from Arabic 'hashashin', the killer sect that used to assassinate specific people, war leaders, religious leaders, politicians, etc ) named Altair, who takes a little bit of hashish and then he goes hehehe, kidding While playing this game, I just couldn't stop giggle on certain occasions, I always remember Eddie Izzard's joke about hashashins and their usage of hashish (the assassins used hashish to enhance their assassination tactics), OK, enough of that. Altair makes a mistake in the first mission which is actually a tutorial, but after that his leader strips away his skills and weapons, so that you can go and start the game properly, and to upgrade yourself sh*t But, before that you realize that the gameplay is actually an virtual memory image from a guy named Desmond Miles, who is a descendant of Altair. And he is kidnapped and persuaded to take place in an scientific experiment to discover deepest memories of ancestors via machine called amnibus. Sounds pretty cool, right. Now Every time you lay down on amnibus, you become Altair. And then, you take various missions, assassinations primarily, pickpocket, spying on people, interrogation and other minor challenges. The gameplay is decent, not that hard, you just need to adapt to these kind of controls, and to a fact that this is an third person, adventure stealth game. I don't like stealth games, I prefer first person shooters, where I can enter the room and start shooting all over the place with my beloved minigun ahhh but, after this game, I learn to love stealth in video games more. You really need patience for this game, for every moment of it, because, here's the thing that makes me angry the cut scenes are pretty long, it takes a pretty long time to enter the game, it takes a hell of a lot more to exit the damn thing so just give patience and everything will be just fine. And get use to the controls, sometimes Altair can be clumsy in battle and sometimes it happens that he can't grab onto a building, but you need to get use to it. So, that's about it, take your console, and go ride assassinate, survive, adapt, hide, defile, and don't forget check upon a date with your girlfriend. Don't be late. 
