The original Assassin’s Creed is still an ‘unforgettable’ experience
We can sometimes look at our favorite video games with rose-tinted lenses, our mind playing tricks and making us think that they are much better than what they actually were.
Everything is comparable with its age. We may have loved Drake’s Fortune for PS3 in 2007. It wasn’t perfect, but the game was fun to play and it looked good for its age. It is unfair to compare it to A Thief’s End released on PlayStation 4 in 2016.
Assassin’s Creed, which was released also in 2007, was a great game, albeit a little clunky. I do swear, however, that it handled better than Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. The first ACgame, like Uncharted Drake’s Fortune, helped to set the stage for years to follow.
How does the original Assassin’s Creed, hold up to date? It’s fair to say that Uncharted still holds up, particularly in the version in The Nathan Drake Collection, which has been upgraded with HD graphics and improved quality of life.
Unfortunately, the original Assassin’s Creed has not received the remake it deserves. We can therefore only play the game as it was intended to be played, for better or for worse. It’s true that I did play the AC original a few years ago to go down memory lane, and while it was decent, my memories of it were more positive than they should be.
Reddit user Weedlereed shared a clip that showed some really sweet parkouring, demonstrating the game’s original features. I would assume this clip was a result of a lot of practice before it was made public.
Redditors praised the original game that started the series. Dream_Eat3r_ said, “Playing the game back in 2008 was an unforgettable experience.” Once you’re used to the controls, free running in AC1 is a lot of fun,” said A_Swizzzz. The ability to jump over obstacles while chasing dozens of enemies and trying to hide is fun. It makes the game more exciting and gives the player greater freedom.
It is said that the release date of The Assassin’s Creed: Red which takes place in feudal Japan may be nearer than expected. However, it might also be the last RPG game.
Assassin’s Creed mirage will be available for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox in the near future on 12th October 2023.
