Marc Saltzman of Gannett News Service reviews Assassin's Creed for CNN: "If you ever doubted a video game could deliver a movie-like experience, pick up Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed for an adventure so engrossing it should've come with a crowbar to pry yourself away."
• Assassin's Creed offers high-definition graphics, dialogue, music soundtrack
• Gamer plays 12th-century assassin named Altair
• Cities such as Jerusalem, Damascus and Acre authentically re-created
• Missions include: assassinating a target, pickpocketing and scaling buildings
Conclusion: "Assassin's Creed is an imaginatively conceived and wonderfully executed single-player adventure that should take a good 10 hours to complete, and more than double that for the optional side missions.
Mature gamers in search of a beautiful, exhilarating piece of interactive entertainment will be more than pleased with this hard-to-put-down adventure."
