  • Assassin's Creed Coming to the iPhone


    IGN managed to grab a sneak peak of the soon to be released Assassin's Creed iPhone game. Expected to hit the App Store some time soon (maybe as early as next week) the iPhone version of the game is based strongly on Ubisoft's Altair's Chronicles, which is the DS prequel to the very first Assassin's Creed game. In the game you play as master assassin Altair and you are on a mission to explore the Holy Land to find "The Chalice" with the goal of ending the crusades. The iPhone version combines stealth, action, combat, and problem solving to create a (hopefully) awesome game. The iPhone version has the addition of "mini-games" within the main game, touchscreen controls (that hopefully will work well), the ability to upgrade Alitar with six different weapons, and what looks like some awesome 3D graphics.

    It is exciting to see more console titles make it to the iPhone and if it comes anywhere close to the original which poetic_folly calls "freakin awesome -- best game i've played on ps3, with possible exception of call of duty and i've played over 4 games on ps3" it should be a great addition to the lineup of games available on the iPhone.

      Not too bad, I'll probably get it if it gets good reviews.

      So true, I want to see GTA or other games like this make it to the iPhone/iPod Touch.

      LOL! I've had my PS3 since launch and I certainly understand the sarcasm in that. Granted, I got CoD4:MW, CoD:WaW, and Assassin's Creed on PC (CoD3 on Wii). The PS3's exclusives aren't enough, though I've more than justified it as a Blu-Ray Disc player.

      Also, let's stop comparing a DS port/recreation to the console game. Penny Arcade made it clear that whoever's job it was to water down that game to make a portable version was not to be envied and they shuddered to imagine the results (Altair's Chronicles).

      This is what MGS on the iphone should've looked like.
      I doubt it'll look like that but if it does then I guess I will have to buy my first game on the iPhone.

      This game would be great but just got to hope they don't make it as repetitive as the next gen systems version.

      Looks pretty sweet!! On a side note, I'd LOVE to see some of the Tomb Raider series ported to, or even newly developed for the iPhone. I think Core would have probably gone for it, but I'm not sure Crystal Dynamics (I think that's who owns the rights to it now) will have a go at it. Controls would have to be somewhat basic now, but once 3.0 officially goes live, the options for developing games to use a wired, or possibly even a Bluetooth controller are very intriguing.

      I think that would REALLY open up some great possibilities.

      I would kill for a Pokemon iPhone game that could communicate with a DS. Even if it's just a ranch-type game. Hell, I'd be happy with a pokedex.

      But yeah, like someone else said, I hope it's less repetitive than the next-gen variation. The game was pretty but the story and gameplay was absolutely HORRIBLE. You did the exact same thing NINE times, which the enemies getting a little more annoying each time.

      Go to town / do assassination / beat beggar / go to friendly assassin / do another assassination / got enough for final kill? do final kill

      repeat 8 times and add a final segement (which sucks) and you have the game.

      It's sad though because it's SO PRETTY. At least Assassin's Creed 2 seems to fix most of those issues and it's set on the Renaissance! DA VINCI builds stuff for you!

      Yeah, this would be cool, but only in our wildest dreams will this ever happen. I don't think nintendo has done any games for any console aside from their own ever since the famicom.
