It took me a while to get into this game. I love the time period that the game is based on. And, the main character, Altiar is one of the coolest characters in a video game. Not to mention that it's such a cool name.
My favorite part of this game is how he climbes seamlessly around the rooftop. The animations are outstanding and the city is truly amazing. A living breathing replication of the period of the Crusades. The visuals are incredible. But, as I always say, it doesn't matter how pretty a game is if it's not fun to play. And, this game is fun
It's strange because the gameplay becomes repititious; your given a target to assassinate, you go and eavesdrop, pickpocket the target, and rough him up to get information. Once this is done (and it's not neceassary to to all 3 of them), you return to the Guild in the city your in; wheter it be Acre, Jeraseluem, etc. You get your marker which gives you permission and the green light to assissinate the target.
This can get old awfully fast. Luckily, the gameplay makes up for it as well as the visuals. All is all, my opinion is that this is a must have game for any Xbox 360 owner. I can't wait unti the scond one come out.
I finally was fortunate enough to get an Xbox 360. I 've also played it on HD, however my TV only has standard def. But, WOW, what a difference between the two. Fallout 3 looks amazing. It's so much more fun playing on an HD TV.
Lately, I've been getting into the multiplayer portion of Modern Warfare 2. It's so much fun and it's very addictive. Before that I had at least 23 hours put into Fallout 3, which I think is a great game. But, now. MW2 is taking all of my time. I've also spent alot of time with NHL 09. This is hands down the best most complete hockey game I've ever played. There is just something about it that makes it not only fun, but realistic. The way the players skate, the flow so easily. The shot stick allows for some great control over your shots and the passing game is great. Finally a hockey game that allows your tema to set up in the offense. The powerplay is great, it really feels that your team is on a power play and if you cycle the puck around correctly, you can take advantage of the man advantage. It's a very fun game, with lots of game modes. One being "Be a Pro", which lets you create a player and take him up through the ranks. Starting in the AHL and then working your way ultimately up to the first line on the NHL. There is so much to do with this game. If you a hockey fan, do your self a favor and pick this game up. Last I checked, the game was around 16 dollars used at Gamestop. It appears the only difference between NHL 09 and NHL 10 is the board play and the new fighting engine. And, of course, the updated rosters. Other than that, you feel as if your playing the same game.
I was on Gamespot this morning checking out some gameplay videos fro CoD 4 and Assassins Creed and decided to check my user profile. I was very suprised to see that all my settings, game collection, and blogs were still here! Some of them are almost 3 years old. Good job GameSpot! You guys rock! It's nice to see a site keep all this user information for so long. I'm still playing Xbox, since I haven't had the funds to pick up a 360 yet, and I'm going to start using this blog again. However, I have to go to work right now, so I have to cut this short. Just wanted to write a quick hello and check in. TTYL. -Rwebster
