PostSubject: Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles ( DS )   Tue Feb 12, 2008 7:56 am

Metachronos overall score = 6.9 / 10

Positive
- Occasionally enjoyable mix of platforming and combat
- Pretty visual design and good sound effects

Negative
- Bland, rudimentary story
- Platforming is awkward due to clunky camera angles and control issues
- Minigames feel like afterthoughts
- Why was Assassin's Creed released for the DS, and not for the Wii of Ps2

It's not surprising that the Nintendo DS iteration of Assassin's Creed doesn't feature the often-stunning, open-world exploration of its console counterparts. It does feature many of the same elements, however: An attractive visual style, some nice animation work, and decent sound effects that make the Middle Eastern cityscapes you explore feel alive with activity. Its fundamental design, however, bears a closer resemblance to another of Ubisoft's landmark properties: Prince of Persia. In Altair's Chronicles, you travel through 3D environments on a mostly linear path, avoiding traps, scaling walls, and occasionally beating up some bad guys in the process. When the game hits its stride, this makes for some fairly enjoyable entertainment. Unfortunately, clunky controls and an overall lack of refinement frequently conspire to sully the experience.

You could finish Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles in around four hours, but even the promise of a harder difficulty level won't likely lure you back for a second play-through. It's hardly a bad game; in fact, the final hour mixes the various elements together nicely and hits a smooth stride as a result. Nevertheless, the game offers few surprises, and some sloppy execution problems get in the way far too often to make it outright recommendable.
