Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines (PSP)

 

Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines doesn't get it. On the surface, it offers many of the features you'd want from an Assassin's Creed game on the PSP. It puts you in control of Altair, the first game's nimble protagonist, and sends you on a mission to...

Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines Review

 

It's just like Assassin's Creed only portable, and awful.

Combat animations are cool, overhauled mission structure

Free-running with no camera control sucks, enemy AI is abysmal, story makes no sense, combat is entirely too easy

Sure you can link up this game with the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed II for money and weapon unlocks, but even that's not a good enough reason to spend the five or six hours needed to get to the end of the game. Simply put, there are too many...

Bloodlines is great visually but falls down in terms of gameplay

Generic at best, Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines is a great example of what can be done on the PSP visually, but should in no way be considered an example of great gameplay.

PSP Review – Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines

 

PlayStation LifeStyle reviews Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines.

Many questions were left unanswered at the end of Assassin's Creed. Ubisoft Montreal and Griptonite Games set out to answer some of the questions of the events that occurred after Assassin's Creed. This time the story is told on the PlayStation...

s story, it didn't exactly strike a chord with critics or consumers, and was met with mixed reactions

Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines has all the makings for a great continuation of Altair's story, but it's fraught with presentation and gameplay problems that keep it from becoming a truly fantastic experience.

Not exactly a portable Assassin's Creed II, but worth a stab

Free-form platforming is awesome ; Simple, satisfying combat and stealth kills ; Decent boss battles and exciting escape sequences

Imprecise controls cause platforming flubs ; Lifeless characters and story; brain-dead AI ; Spotlights the original's bothersome flaws

We can’t wrap our heads around the “why” of Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines. Not its existence, mind you. We love a good mix of portable platforming and swordplay, even if the PSP is prone to awkward analog controls and intolerable cameras – and this is...

Beauty

Looks great, superb voice acting, intruiging story

Touchy controls, shallow combat, not much to do

Simply said, the game is gorgeous. However, it doesn’t look like the first game. Bloodlines looks like what the first game would be if it were ported to the PS2: there is no bump mapping, no HDR (high dynamic range) lighting, and the graphics certainly...

Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines (2009) on PlayStation Portable

 

This is an exclusive PSP entry in the popular Assassin's Creed franchise, which follows covert assassins at crucial junctions in history. This game bridges the story gaps between Assassin's Creed 1 and 2, focusing again on Altair in a storyline set...

Ubisoft does a mostly successful job in cramming Altair into your pocket.

The Consensus: Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines Review

 

Run, stab guy, repeat.

Faithful to the series' trademark gameplay; well-designed controls

Feels thrown-together; drab environments; repetitive gameplay; poor dialogue and acting
