Assassin's Creed Question

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have been thinking about trying out the series. The 1st Assassin's Creed from what I read is only OK compared to the rest of the series, I'm just wondering if I dont play the 1st one will I miss something as far as the storyline goes?

You'll be missing some of the fine details, but nothing too major.

Read up on the plot on wiki

Nah not really, without giving too much away the first game centres on the life of one assassin and the following games centre on another assassin with a lot of references to the first assassin in some games. However, where there are references made, previous knowledge isn't a pre-requisite. You can enjoy the series without playing the first game or by reading the plot. That said if you like a good story and don't mind rather repetitive gameplay the first game is ok.

The only problem with the first game was that it was repetitive in it's required side-questing, if that makes any sense.

Aside from that, I actually preferred it to the other titles.

Thanks for the comments everyone I heard that its very repetitive that's why I am hesitant if I should bother with playing it.

I didn't play it first, kinda glad I did end up playing it, but it did suck compared to II and Brotherhood.

In regards to 1st Assassin's Creed, as long as you don't attempt to find all the optional stuff, the game should be enjoyable. Otherwise it gets really repetitive.

I'm finding it hard to complete the 1st one. Are the others that much better?

I am in the process of playing brotherhood. Can anyone give any insight as to how revelations is in comparison? I am itching to play revelations but want to finish the brotherhood first. Is it good?

Revelations is much shorter than Brotherhood. It's online part is more comprehensive than Brotherhood.

Buy Revelations when it is on sale. Other than that, it is a good game.
