Assassin's Creed Gameplay
Assassin's Creed is a unique game because of it's sophisticated, detailed plot, exclusive setting and unusual mechanics. The primary goal in Assassin's Creed is to complete quests and follow the storyline. The player must manually travel from the starting location to one of three cities, which are Jerusalem, Damascus and Acre, to find the agent and receive a new quest. The agents provide a safe house, give the protagonist various information about the targets and require them to perform additional missions before the main task.
The additional missions in Assassin's Creed include interrogation, pickpocketing and eavesdropping, as well as completing various tasks for informers and other Assassins. Players may also take part in any number of side objectives, such as climbing high buildings to explore the city and helping citizens who are being harassed by the city guards. You may also discover "additional memories" that don't advance the main story, such as searching for Templars and eliminating them or flag collection. After each successful mission, the players travel back to the Brotherhood to acquire a reward. It may be a better weapon or an upgrade of already existing abilities. You are free to select one of a few next targets afterwards to pursue various rewards.
Social Status Icon is a part of the interface, and it informs the players regarding the current state of alert in the nearby locations. You may blend into nearby crowds or perform other non-threatening tasks to hide and reduce the alertness level. You can also use a retractable hidden blade to attempt stealth assassinations. Other actions may be more noticeable, such as running, scaling the sides of buildings to climb to higher vantage points, and attacking guards. That may lead to a high alert, and crowds would run and scatter while guards try to chase and bring you down.
Assassin's Creed has a unique health system based on the specific aspects of the game. Full health allows you to use Eagle Vision, which highlights all visible characters in colours corresponding to whether they are allies, foes, neutral, or the target of the planned quest.
Assassin's Creed features various mechanics that allow the players to customize their playstyle and find different paths to complete the main storyline. It fits both casual and hardcore players, and the realistic environment keeps them involved throughout the story.
