As mentioned, Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines is a solid and faithful recreation of the original Assassin's Creed that has been moulded quite well for portable play, while fans of the franchise will definitely get the most of this. The compromise of smaller environments has allowed for more focused objectives and very frequent and generous checkpoints. However, the game's inconsistency in the mechanics, lack of evolution and rather apparent lack of polish hurt a good and solid portable recreation, while players with no experience will probably be left out in the cold. Otherwise, there isn't too much more that could have been done.
Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines is a good title that rides nicely on its predecessor's coat tails, but is let down by a lack of polish and evolution.
