Aggrogamer writes: "Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed isn't new to the handheld world, Altair's Chronicles was released to the Nintendo DS and iPhone earlier, however this was the first time that they would try putting the full free-roam style gameplay on a handheld. The game is certainly ambitious and the developers can't be blamed for the PSP's limiting hardware. The story is solid though. Unlike Assassin's Creed II, Bloodlines is a direct sequel to the first game and involves Maria, the Templar of whom Altair thinks is hot. He "takes" her "hostage" in order to defeat the rest of the templars of whom he's chased to the island of Cyprus."
