Since getting my new gaming machine, I’ve been revisiting some of my favorite series. One of these is the Assassins Creed pentilogy. I’ve played the first two and a part of Brotherhood, but got distracted at the start of this year when we started looking for a house. Rather than picking up where I left off, I decided to start from the beginning. It has been five years since I played the original and I’d like to experience the story in one continuous flow. Hoping the momentum will carry me all the way through to the newly released AC3.
As I came upon Jerusalem I was reminded just how amazingly pretty this game can be. Aside from all of the backstabbing, flag hunting, horse chases, and general chaos, there is a wonderful and engrossing depiction of a thousand year-old land that is rich with life and culture. It’s a great experience filled with some fantastic game play.
So far I have assassinated Tamir and am now en route to Acre and Jerusalem to report to the guild masters there. I’ve been slow-playing the story so far instead spending time hunting the Templar and the various hidden flags. I’ve managed 24/60 Templar and 79/100 King Richard flags so far, which for about eight hours of play is pretty good. Hoping to continue the slow pace and savor the experience.
