Assassin's Creed features one of the most unique gameworlds ever created: beautiful, memorable, and alive. Every crack and crevasse is filled with gorgeous, subtle details, from astounding visual flourishes to overheard cries for help. But it's more than just a world--it's a fun and exciting action game with a ton of stuff to do and places to explore, rounded out with a complex story that will slowly grab you the more you play. The PC version has a few more issues than its console counterparts, and the keyboard-and-mouse controls strip away some of the smooth magic of exploration. Nevertheless, if you don't mind plugging in a gamepad and have a system that exceeds the system requirements, you'll find the same free-form travels and atmospheric game world that console owners enjoyed last year.

Huge, gorgeous world that feels wholly alive It's fun to run across city rooftops Joyous mix of stealth, action, and platforming Stunning sound design features fantastic voice acting and a beautiful musical score Tons of small details will constantly amaze you.
Confusing ending Remarkably high system requirements and some small glitches New mission types aren't as good as the others.
