Assassin's Creed: Pro-G Review - 8/10

Pro-G's Tom Orry reviews Assassin's Creed and concludes:

"Assassin's Creed should certainly be played by anyone who's taken the jump to the next-generation consoles, but don't expect to be playing something that will go down in history as one of the greatest games of all time. It's ambitious and succeeds more than it fails, giving me hope that one day Ubisoft Montréal will deliver the game they originally set out to make."

Quick Points:
+ Roaming the cities is great
+ Stunning visuals
- Free-running can be awkward
- Very repetitive

Gameplay: 7
Graphic: 9
Sound: 8

Pro-G Score: 8 (out of 10) Great

The story is too old to be commented.

I am a bit dissapointed because i was looking forward to this game, but the stupid AI, the lack luster stealh mode and the repetitivenes of the game, really hurts me because i was really looking for a good Single player game. I hope uncahrted really delivers.

Assassin's Creed sucks, played it, it's boring. Controls are weak for 360.

Just read the new reviews, they basically say the same thing about what they don't like

The only Review I care about is
Game Informer
and they gave it a 9.25
So for me this is a must buy.

You're really limiting yourself if yuo look only at one review. You're going to end up missing some great games and buying some medicore games like that.

I don't see why you would discount this review, anyway. 8/10 isn't bad. It's not the kind of score that doesn't make you want to buy a game. It's getting good scores all over.

However, looking only at one reviewer, you're going to get the wrong idea about games sometimes.

MK_Red4933d ago

I'm with you ParaDise_LosT. I've always prefered Game Informer in case of reviews.
At least Pro-G gave an 8 (Great), rest of reviewers are really crazy to give it 7 and even one 6.7 (Stupid).

IDC....what these reviewers still getting this game....

I'm a little surprised by some of the reviews coming out as this was such a highly touted game. Perhaps reviewers are just getting their hopes up way too high. Every game has good and bad points (even Call of Duty 4). I'm still going to get this in a day or two. It looks fantastic and the story seems very original and engaging. I did read about concerns that one of the designers had regarding space on the 360 disc vs memory issues on the PS3 version. Does anyone have any ideas about which version might be the best? I was leaning toward PS3, but I have no good reason for that.
