The original Assassin's Creed... well, technically speaking, the design of the first AC is kinda flawed. Perhaps even REALLY flawed. In that regards, the next games of the series are a lot better. But it's a different experience, and there's something missing in the sequels that was present in the first AC, and... I'm a fan of the series since the original game was released (despite its flaws), but I still miss that elusive 'something' that was present in the first game. It's hard to define what things are those exactly, but... for example, the first AC is the only game in the series that you can actually normally complete with the HUD totally off (and that's a really awesome experience, in my opinion). You can't do that in AC2/ACB/ACR because you go 'and now where the **** do I need to go?' very often if the HUD's off... and stuff like that.
