"Overall, Altair's Chronicles is a fun platformer that ends up feeling more like Prince of Persia DS than Assassin's Creed. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as the DS could use more action games like this. Sadly, the adventure lasts about a weekend, and there are no real unlockables after beating the game aside from an extra difficulty mode. Still, Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles is a very fun game if you can get past the muddled combat."
