  1. A great sequel to the first Assassin’s Creed (PS3, X360). If you played it you definitely have to buy this one as well.
  2. 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.
  3. Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines is in many ways the fulfillment of a dream: a portable version of Assassin's Creed that loses as little as possible in terms of graphics and freedom of movement. The result is a product of good quality, a little short (the total length would be around six to seven hours) and plagued by some problems about the controls and the camera.
  4. After 2 showed us what Assassin's should be like, Bloodlines feels like a step backwards. [Jan 2010, p.94]
  5. Despite some obvious talent on the part of Griptonite Games, Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines smacks a little too much of an unloved, unwanted by-product birthed from the success of the franchise.
  6. The game keeps with the spirit of the original Assassin’s Creed, but fails to comply with the letter. Its technical flaws outweigh the artistic merits.
  7. Simply put, there are too many negatives here and too many other excellent action games on the PSP to justify spending time with this jumbled mess. This is one set of memories best left forgotten.

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. Expand

    I cannot believe the critical hate this game is getting. If you liked the first AC, then you should like this game. If not, this one will not I cannot believe the critical hate this game is getting. If you liked the first AC, then you should like this game. If not, this one will not do it for you. It's sort of AC 1.25, adding a few elements from 2 in here and there. The gameplay is almost exactly like the first game (for better or for worse), the graphics and voice acting are solid and I am quite impressed with that they've pulled off on the PSP. I would suggest not writing this one off...definitely give it a chance. Expand

    Not so good AI? Not up to AC1 standards? Those reviewers are crazy. It's on the PSP. It's an excellent action game on a portable Not so good AI? Not up to AC1 standards? Those reviewers are crazy. It's on the PSP. It's an excellent action game on a portable console. You don't compare it to AC1, you compare it to the other portable AC, AC Lineage (DS and Iphone), and it's MILES better than that. Indeed, 40$ is a bit steep, 30$ would be fair. Expand

    This game isn't bad, but it's not great either. I wish that...
    -combat was much faster
    -less glitches like climbing midair -more music

    Poor graphics, poor gameplay, poor story telling. Not worth your money.
