While assassin's creed was aspectacular but ultimately flawed experience on next gen consoles, this prequel to the events in the first game is played out on the dual screens of the DS. With the limitations of Nintendo's handheld all too obvious, the lush 3D graphics of the original game have been replaced with a rather creaky side-on view of the action while your quest is simply to recover a mystery chalice. To find the chalice - and put an end to the Crusades of the 12th century into the bargain - you must interrogate people via a simple rhythm-action mini game, pick their pockets using the touchsensitive screen to drag items out of their bags and assassinate a number of key targets. While leaping, climbing and pushing boxes about is fun, it's ultimately unsatisfying.
RATING 3 out of 5
