This is the game that gave birth to the Assassin's Creed franchise and killed the Prince of Persia franchise. The unique thing about the game was that it brought parkour to an open world but not as polished as the Prince of Persia games. The holy land was a boiling point of cultures and religion which was depicted very well in the game. The mix of action and exploration in the three cities was fascinating. The game was very repetitive and grinding was required to progress in missions. It was the era when Ubisoft was more focused on delivering a historically accurate simulator rather than chipping in MTX or DLC's, they even went on to remove the crossbow weapon from the game to be historically accurate.
