Eurogamer: Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines review

Tom Bramwell from Eurogamer writes:

"If there is one area in which Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines exceeds expectations, it is in the volume of chickens stalking Cyprus in the Middle Ages. They are everywhere. In the streets, in the marketplaces, in the churchyards - they're even on the rooftops. You can't free-run more than a few meters without encountering a chicken.

If there are two areas in which Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines exceeds expectations, however, surely the second is that Gryptonite Games has built a series of openworld levels with very small loading times separating them, and that you can traverse each of them in much the same way you can in the PC and console versions. What's more, the frame-rate is good and there's a surprising amount of detail: your flowing assassin uniform, the vines, haybales, civilians, etc. Did I mention the chickens?"

Disappointing score but I am enjoying it. The camera is a bit of a pain but I can get used to it.

"Bloodlines isn't a terrible or frustrating game"

5/10 sounds like a terrible game. >_>

Not really...

Sounds about an average game...

1, 2 or 3 is terrible.

I don't know, I look at the rating system like you get rated on school papers. 70 is average, a 50 is terrible. And that seems to be how most reviewers do it.

Ummmm... this IS a Sony exclusive... on the PSP... and it has been getting mediocre reviews across the board from every site... and I have not seen one Playstation supporter talk about bias or getting "screwed by reviewers."
