The game takes several hours to complete (think 6-10+) and is therefore one of the most lengthy (and challenging) iPhone games I've played. While Hero of Sparta was a simple hack-and-slash adventure game, Assassin's Creed walks a tightrope of stealth, combat, platforming, and puzzles. Unfortunately, right now the rope has been dipped in gasoline and lit on fire by the frustrating save system, hair-trigger controls, and atrocious pathfinding problems. Future updates will hopefully solve some of the many adaptation problems that have sprung up during the port process, but right now Altair's Chronicles isn't living up to the Assassin's Creed or Gameloft name".
