CNN Review: Cinematic thriller "Assassin's Creed" hits the mark

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."

Story Highlights:
• 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."

Great review but as a motion-picture / movie-experience game, I have to go with Mass Effect. Still, both are solid AAA games and deserve the hype and praise.

movie-like experience? really? Where was that at? The cutscenes werent all that great, the story was ho-hum, and the missions as repetitive as you can get.

after my first 2-3 hours i was kinda bored with it. I went and got Uncharted and beat that game once already. So im about 2 hours into my secound run on Uncharted and i decide to put on AC

This game is really cool. Its more mellow and after uncharted and COD4 i realized i really liked it

8.5 from me
