Worth playing through the original Assassin's Creed?

The original Assassin's Creed was the biggest disappointment in my gaming life. It was so awful and repetitive that I've yet to give anything else in the series a chance.


That's a mistake.

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


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


I'm not a completionist :p

Unpopular opinion, but yes, it's absolutely worth it. The setting is amazing.

It's worth it for the setting. The gameplay can be boring at times but it's not the end of the world. It's a good $30 game. And you can probably find for $10.

Yes, AC1 has my favourite setting, and I think it has the best story out of all of them. The story had a cool and mysterious vibe to it, and it made you question who was right and who was wrong. The rest of the AC games made the storyline very cheesy. I now dislike AC so much especially because of Brotherhood that it is unlikely I will play another AC game.

It's $8 on Amazon.

I'm guessing it should be an okay investment?

I'm very scared about the repetition, but if I like it enough, I will definitely give Assassin's Creed II a chance.

Yes, you should at least try it. It's actually one of my favorite games this gen.

Honestly, the repetition isn't that bad when you consider that AC1 has some of the best assassinations in the series.

The story, hell yes. Just avoid side missions where you can and you'll enjoy it.

If you're like me, and absolutely must play a game you're interested in just to see if it's as bad as people say (DmC has been nagging at me recently), then just get it. If this is the case, then you and I both know you're going to end up getting it anyway.

It's not THAT bad, but I'd certainly agree that it's extremely repetitive. To give you an idea, I believe it goes: Travel to new area, obtain information about target, assassinate, escape. There could be more to it, but it's definitely a noticeably repetitive game. AC II, on the other hand, is an all around MUCH better game. Seriously.
