So I got a chance to play a bit of Assassin's Creed : Bloodlines during lunch break. I had high expectations for this one, but was left slightly disappointed. Visually, the game looks great and seems to pick up right where the first AC leaves you on the PS3/360 version. Controls are very similar the the bigger consoles, with the biggest difference being the very obvious lack of a second analogue control for the camera. Instead, you have to keep the left shoulder button pressed down while you control the camera with the X O ^  buttons. It's a pain, but you can quickly recenter the camera in front of the player by tapping the left shoulder button twice. While this camera control scheme is annoying, I found the lack of invert y axis even more annoying. The city looks much smaller and feels empty at times. Gone are cities full of life filled with peasants, guards and monks. Instread, almost every character you meet is an enemy of some sort. Some of them seem to appear from no where, as you turn a corner. Due to the PSP's limitations, I believe the game draws character as they appear onscreen, which is why the city seems so empty. Draw distance isn't too far either, but I was expecting that. However, you can anticipate where enemies are by looking at the small onscreen map which shows enemies as dots. Combat remains faithful to the original and the game still has lots of side-missions to complete. Storywise, the plot seems complexe from what I've seen so far and there is a definite improvement in Altaïr's voice actor. All in all, Assassin's Creed Bloodlines is a decent portable version for the franchise and a definite improvement on the DS version from a few years ago. While far from being perfect, it's suitable for short 15-20 mintues of play. I give it 7/10. Has anyone else picked it up?
