Worth playing through the original Assassin's Creed?

#1theofficefan99Posted 3/26/2013 10:36:03 PM
I'm planning on getting into the Assassin's Creed series because it looks pretty interesting-- II and Brotherhood in particular-- and I don't want to feel like I'm missing out on anything.

I want to buy the first Assassin's Creed, but I heard from many people that the game is insanely repetitive and just not good at all.

Despite this, is it still worth the play? Why or why not?

Thanks!

I think its still fun, yes the missions are repetitive, where you do the same 3 activities alot, but the story is definently worth seeing and it s still a blast. Probably cheap now too

I would say no. 2 improved on pretty much everything from 1, which is pretty meh.

The games do kind of a s*** job explaining the story, though, so there are some cutscenes you might want to look up to have things make sense. Not really worth it just for the story, though. 1 sucks compared to the Ezio Trilogy.

EDIT: Also, forgot to mention, do not get the Ezio Trilogy collection. It makes the games significantly more buggy, and in a series that already has it's fair share of glitches, that's unacceptable.

Really? Didn't notice much of a difference at all. And I've played ACII before getting the Ezio Trilogy.

It's pretty short, so it's not like you'll be wasting a lot of your time if you don't like it.

I've run into a lot longer load times, AI running in place into walls, lanterns flying across the map, and a lot else in ACII alone. Brotherhood's even worse.

Maybe it's not common, but I've seen a lot more glitches on the ET disc than on ACII by itself. It's possible and worth knowing.

Depends on if you're a completionist or not. (Getting all those flags with no way of tracking them... UUUUUUUGH.)

I felt AC1 was the strongest. Sure, it got a little repetitive, but everything you did to an extent made sense of why and how you do it, where AC2 breaks some of these. Pick pocket, for example, is a little more difficult in AC1 because you have to steal from their pocket while they aren't noticing. AC2 you just brush by them.

Honestly, not at all. Eizo's story really doesn't link with the first game's story, and the 2nd game fixes all the issues with the first game.
