Yes, some of the stuff was boring, and yes, I wasn't able to finish the game due to my stolen Xbox 360 and the save file, but damn if that game didn't offer exhilarating moments in an incredibly fascinating world. That's why I'm so disappointed with the change from Altair's Middle Eastern, Crusader's era to Ezio's Renaissance Italy in Assassin's Creed II. Sure, Italy is cool, but there was something really fascinating and unexplored with Altair. Italy just seems blasé to me.
So that's why I was really stoked about the PlayStation Portable game, Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines. This game takes place in between Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed II, and helps explain how we end up in the land of codpieces. Will we be playing as Altair? Yes. Will this be the Assassin's Creed we love? Maybe".
