  1. Feels solid and assured. [Christmas 2009, p.119]
  2. Ultimately, though, Bloodlines is held back by the limitations of the PSP format. [Jan 2010, p.82]
  3. Bloodlines is a brave attempt at an open 3D world which, while visually breathtaking, is let down by repetitive gameplay and awkward camera controls.

    The PlayStation 3 Assassin’s Creed’s are really good games, but this PSP version is fun yet it has too many issues to name it a good game. The gameplay is repetitive, the AI is very bad and the camera is really frustrating. If you were thinking this was a good game, than it’s a great disappointment. If you like the franchise and want to try this one, you get a nice game, not more, not less.
  5. After 2 showed us what Assassin's should be like, Bloodlines feels like a step backwards. [Jan 2010, p.94]
  6. Great location, good gameplay and very interesting story. Assassin's Creed Bloodlines achieves the goal of reproducing console's style into the PSP. Good visuals, enhanced combat system and new money-system could be what the entire saga needed in order to evolve. Bad A.I. influences some fighting sessions, and the too repetitive mission can slow down the pace. Every PSP owner should at least try this fairly good title.
  7. Ubisoft has made an effort to create a great portable adaptation of its most popular series, however this hasn't been reflected in the final result.
  8. About as good as I could imagine a game in the series being on the PSP, but that doesn't automatically make it an excellent game. Control issues to do with the use of a manual camera, the PSP's lack of horsepower and a series of missions that focus almost entirely on killing make this an Assassin's Creed game that lacks the quality seen in the console games.

    It is such a good game in fact one of the best. It has a splendid story with awesome moves to kill the templars. Great upgrades, and best of all you can do so many things in the game. Indeed it has bad cut-scenes. But on a whole, it is great. I would give it a score of atleast 8.5 - 9.5. Well done Ubisoft! Users rating should defenitely be higher. Metascore should also be higher.

    I was surprised that a handheld version of this game was actually pretty good for a playstation portable game. I purchased it at 20 bucks and give it a 7.9 out of 10. Full Review »

    Bland missions can't make the PSP (AC) version be a magnificent experience , however , if you're a truly AC fanatic in terms of story side, there is a possibility that it'll attract you. Full Review »
