Assassin’s Creed is an action-adventure game that follows the confrontation of the Assassins and the Templars. It’s the first installment in the series, followed by several standalone titles and DLCs. Director’s Cut Edition is the extended version of Assassin’s Creed with more investigation options and several new missions.

The game’s world is split between the modernity and the time after the Third Crusade when the main action is set. You play as Desmond Miles, a descendant of an assassin named Altair Ibn-La'Ahad. You need to step into the war over the Apple of Eden. With the Animus machine Desmond’s mind is sent to the past and you take control of Altair. The game missions are in fact a series of assassinations you need to carry out.

Assassin’s Creed is set in an open world with three main cities: Jerusalem, Acre, or Damascus. In every city you get information about your target and can complete side quests. You upgrade Altair with new weapons after each successful assassination. The protagonist is also very skillful and has the Eagle Vision ability to highlight all visible characters either they are targets, enemies, allies or neutrals. This option is only available when the health bar is full.

Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition reviews and comments

This game in short is a flawed, but excellent experience. While those may seem contradictory, let me break it down for you. First, it is difficult to get running properly on a modern gaming rig, simply because it was designed for technology that wasn't available almost 15 years ago. There are glitches, not many, and nothing "game-breaking", but a few annoying ones. The game suffers greatly from monotonous plot progression elements, basically go to city, go to district, do some stuff, kill a guy, rinse and repeat many, many times. The collectables are not interesting and provide absolutely 0 benefit in doing them, and what's more, are very easy to lose place on (which is what I did). All that being said, the good in this game saves what could have been a mediocre game, into one that is memorable, definitely worth playing, and is the reason why a massively successful game series was launched from this title. First, the gameplay mechanics are incredibly detailed and well thought out. This is most evident for me in the combat system. I have played this game roughly 5 times beginning to end since the release, and I am STILL finding out different ways you can respond to enemies movements and to turn the battle in your favor. The combat in general is just very fluid and so much fun. I almost didn't mind the repetitive "Save the Citizen" mini-games, because I got to have a cool sword fight. The plot, in my opinion, is one of the best present in any media franchise, movie, tv, game, or otherwise. It is very gripping, very unique, and very well told (though I wish there were subtitles). The graphics have also held up beautifully, especially the environmental ones. All in all, an amazing game if you are willing to work through some kinks.

Too Many Children write reviews here, which strikes you again and again:D Children with bad PC who are bore by everything and have no Idea about the Matter. This Game is a Legend and is even Fun today. The Graphics are still very good to see and once you understand the Controls it makes it really fun. Of course, there are only Clever levels and no Open World here in the game, such as in the new "Assassins Creed: Origin," but it all started at some point. The Story is very memorable and therefore a "must have." The prize is really gifted and offers you a Good start in the AC Saga. Definitely buy.

Everything we do, everything we are, starts and ends with ourselves if you haven't had anything to do with the Open-World Genre, which is probably not going to be the Case now in 2019, the Game is recommended. With ongoing Time, however, you quickly realize that it consists of a lot of redundant Tasks, which are repeated again and again and the Playing Time is stretched nicely as a result. The best way to Play is with the Controller, cozy from a Distance. Recommended After a hard Day's work, if you just want to enjoy a Story comfortably without having to think a great deal. You can also call it interactive Time to kill. I enjoyed it a lot When I appeared, so I was also a good Review. From today's Perspective, or with the Experience now gained, however, I would skip it and start directly with Part 2. The History of the AC parts is generally manageable and quite shallow, but with a few Exceptions I do not want to spoil. Cheers, Fletcher

I play this Part for the first Time and have played almost all the Assassin's Creed Games before, which is why I have something to criticize about the Variety. The Missions are always about the Same thing:-you get an Assassination Contract-you then have to prepare it with Basically the same preparation Missions-then The assassination comes-only always with a different Goal and different History behind it. Of course, other Activities such as Climbing the many Lookout towers (which you always like to repeat), Collecting Flags or Killing numerous Templars ... One has to bear in mind, however, that it is of course the first Part of the extraordinary game series and that it all began with this Game. I guess I see it that way, as I've already played almost all the other parts, of course, much more extensive. But the Rather arrogant but nice Protagonist Altair also provides For the entertainment. :) All in all, I find this Part successful for the very first of this Series. I would recommend the Purchase to you, because as already mentioned, this is the Origin of an unforgettable Journey through the Life of The Assassins. Thank You for reading!
