Assassin's Creed creator: First game is "the purest"

Nathan Brown of Edge writes: Patrice Désilets, creator of the Assassin's Creed franchise for Ubisoft, believes the first game in the series is "the purest" because it gave players a degree of freedom that subsequent games have shied away from. (Assassin's Creed, EA, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

In my opinion AC went downhill after AC2. AC1 was difficult, partly open, had a huge world to explore. It just felt better and more challenging. AC2 and the following games were too easy and too boring. I haven't even finished Revelations, it just doesn't capture me like AC1 did.

I remember first controlling Altair for the first time in 2007. It was an awesome moment for me. He had smooth animations, could literally climb any structure that was in the environment. Other games (like Tomb Raider) would put various places where you are allowed to climb. Not so with Altair. He could pretty much climb anything. I found this very fascinating!

That being said, I didn't quite enjoy the repetitive quests I had to do. The story and conspiracy seemed interesting, but doing the same/similar stuff became a bit monotonous.

Then enter in Assassin's Creed II - which is by far STILL my favorite Assassin's Creed game. New setting, new protagonist, larger environments, and a lot more things to do than before - currency, weapons, upgrading, rennovations etc. It changed the way I looked at Assassin's Creed before.

The rest of the sequels (Brotherhood and Revelations) are good games and I enjoyed continuing Ezio's adventures in Rome and Constantinople. They felt like huge expansions that brought new ideas to the table, but sticking with the AC II formula for consistency.

I dunno why people say that . Climbing wasnt harder , fighting was easy as hell and without AC2's variety , the world wasnt bigger and had less content .

The only truly challenging part were the tombs and collecting flags in AC1 .

The story was great , but in between story phases you were running in circles and bored after killing 3-4 of the main targets

I agree. I find myself replaying it frequently. I miss the simplicity, not of the game world, but of the assassin himself. The soundtrack by Jasper Kyd was the best in the series so far, and really helped to craft some memorable chase sequences. I hope they bring that music back in ACIII, even a remix would kick ass.

AC1 was the first game I played on the 360. haha. I still have it.

It's the same for me, except for the PS3

I'm playing it right now, it sucks...
Sure altair is much faster than that Ezio fatass but there's no money, armor (that I know of, I hope I'm a noob and just can't find it) the missions are stupid and more repetitive

I agree
I heard so much about AC1, so when i got it as a gift i flipped out but when i played it i thought it sucked. My friend kept on telling me to buy AC2 but i didnt because i thought it would be like AC1. After borrowing it from a friend I loved AC2, but AC1 sucks! WTF is up with people rambling so much when they die?

He's right it is the purest =] this is the first game I got on my ps3 and 360. I love it so much. Sure story ain't great but that's not what Assassin's creed is all about. It's about the atmosphere of this game
SeekDev  +   1286d ago
You can loosely see the the structure of a story being built throughout AC1 and AC2 (I haven't played the others). I say loosely because where the story is going, no one knows. But if they develop it enough in AC3 then I can see it being very interesting. I think they can do it too, look at the story differences from Portal 1 to Portal 2.

Oh I love the story Assassin's creed 2 carried out and onto brotherhood and onto revelations. It's just when I bought the first game at the time I didn't quite understand it. And by story I also mean campaign wise. The fact that the missions were repetitive. Still the atmosphere, realism, graphics, and physics of the civilians are just awesome. That's why I love Assassin's creed. I had dreams about a game like this like a year before this even got announced and what do you know? It came out.
SeekDev  +   1286d ago
Yeah, I loved AC2's story, especially the secret video you get when you collect all the feathers, damn that left me wanting more.

Only bought 1 & 2, rest was expansion pack of 2, got sick of the renaissance story. Will buy 3 for sure, the true AC2 sequel! 1 was Def the purest & middle-aged story was the best!
