Good game, good graphics, time well-spent.
I was introduced to this game while visiting my dad for a weekend. He showed me parts of the beautiful landscapes and a mission or two, and I was ready more than ready to play it. I sat down and made a new game, and I was immediately sucked in. I loved it. The graphics were amazing, the cities beautiful, the conversations and the personalities of the characters were good, and I loved how everything just fit together. What I loved most of all in the game was the personality change of Altaïr, the main character, then followed by the free-running and the viewpoints. Making a Leap of Faith always made me smile. The only 3 things I have to say about the game that I don't especially like, is that a lot of the cities and areas are very grey, like the sunlight doesn't reach it properly. Also, just running into a guard makes them angrily chase you, where you'll most likely bump into some more guards. I never was particularly good at escaping guards, so that part annoyed me. The last thing, which I don't dislike, I just don't really like it, was the fact that all the small missions were the same. Pickpocket, Eavesdrop or kill some templars for your fellow assassins. That's all I could think of to dislike. Anyone who enjoys good graphics, good conversations, amazingly well-made characters, beautiful landscapes and great missions will love this game. I know I did.
