Assassins Creed PC GamePublisher: Ubisoft, Overall Rating: 8.2/10
In 2007, the new and first version of historical action, adventure and fiction game is born to the new gaming world that is “Assassins Creed”. It is new concept developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. I think you heard in about Assassins in old stories and they are mainly used to kill the famous persons in the area or eliminate major threat to our world.
I think you played a Hitman PC game, is the same concept of assassin, but it is in very modern or new gen assassin. Here Ubisoft takes you to 1911 AD (Third Crusade in Holy Land). The Assassins creed runs on a powerful engine known as Scimitar with Havok. I like the story and gameplay which are set in open world environment with good graphics details. The game is mainly stealth type and has nice combat system, but most of the main assassinations are quite linear ones.

Unlike the other assassination games, Assassins creed player can climb on the building and towers. The tower helps to get view points and easily identify the each cities mission like saving city men suffering from templers, killing games, collectables etc. The health bar is replaced by Synchronization bar. If you perform big jump or have heavy damage, synchronization bar is reducing and at end fully desynchronized. After thet, you need to start the mission again from the last checkpoint.
The “Social status icon”, which enables to show how much Altair is noticed by others (guards). It color changes like green (blend), Yellow (noticing alert) and red (danger). You need to consider the social status color before using the low or high profile actions. The low profile actions are hiding or blending on crowds, moving with crowds, sitting on the bench between two people or using the hidden blade for silent killing.
The high profile actions are highly noticeable which are running through the crowds, climbing on buildings, sword attacks etc.
Once you noticed by guards, need to break the line of sight for escaping or you can fight with them and eliminate them to regain social statues. The “Eagle Vision” is special feature of assassins to differentiate ally, foe and targets. You can only perform eagle vision, when the synchronization bar is full. The targets will turn into golden color, foe and ally appears as red and blue. Overall, the Assassins creed gameplay is unique as compared with other assassination pc games.
