Started this for the sole purpose of trying out something other than Tony Hawk on my new speakers. It doesn’t (yet) have the immersion, soundwise, but then I have only played it for just over an hour.
Well, I say I’ve played it for just over an hour. In reality, I’ve watched it a lot, pressed a button every now and again, and been shown how to press buttons. Oh, and I’ve been killed and somehow came back to life. Or something.
The running around and climbing is fun. The fighting is OK. The handy-holdy nature of the game isn’t so great, though. But I have found a traitor by eavesdropping and “interrogating” (i.e. punching him in the face), then got a horse, rode most of the way to Damascus, and climbed lots of lookout points on the way.
Oh, and had some scenes where I’m not Altair. But I won’t spoil it for you, even if half the internets have already…
