I’d never touched upon the Assassin’s Creed series, but luckily for me Steam came to the rescue with some stupidly cheap prices during an offer week, so I managed to pick up the first two games nice and cheap.

The environments and animations are top notch; the gameplay is essentially fun, but progression gets a little repetitive by the end; and the narrative would be much more interesting if the delivery wasn’t so disjoint from the gameplay. But overall, Assassin’s Creed is a good enough game, and one that I’ve enjoyed playing through – but it’s a good job it ended when it did; if it was much longer I suspect I’d have got bored before reaching the end.
