First Impressions - Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360)

I got to play this game at one of my cousin's houses a couple weeks ago and meant to comment on it then, but I got busy and so you're getting my thoughts now. Now I only played about a couple hours of the game, but usually that's enough to warrant some thoughts and opinions.

First of all, the graphics look pretty sweet, even on a rinky-dink old tube TV and the sound is fairly standard, crisp, appropriate sounding sound. Barring the intermission scenes which take place in present day, the story is rather workable and gripping. As for the gameplay, the controls are pretty solid, it's fairly easy to play, and it doesn't really get too boring. If you seem lost on what you have to do, a little window will pop up to remind you of what you have to do - a nice feature even if it gets redundant later on. All in all, my first real foray into the next generation of video games was a good deal. If you have a Xbox 360, go ahead and pick up Assassin's Creed.
