Akkon aka Acre

February 15th, 2008 by Marcel

Disclaimer: I am playing the german version. This is why some names of towns may differ. I try to translate them to English names. This is why I wrote about Akkon before which is actually called Acre.

While Damascus was nice, it seemed too clean to me. Although I was running around the slums of the town there was not much of the typical suffering in the middle ages present. Sure, some beggars, but all in all the town looked pretty friendly. Acre was in strong contrast. Standing in front of the gate the town looked dirty, dead or starving people lay around. To get into the town I had first to help a monk who was harrassed by soldiers. This led to a group of scholars to arrive in which I could hide to enter the town.

Acre was held hostage by the Knights of Hospitaller. My main mission was to kill the head of this order. I could have done this after 20 minutes but the city sucked me in. The game depicted the dark ages exactly in the way I imagined them. Suffering, diseases, poverty, hunger, polution. Everything was present and so real, that I couldn’t just move on. Instead I climbed every outlook and finished every secondary mission. There were also two informants in town that wanted me to fulfill certain duties in exchange for tips on how to kill Garnier. As I gathered more and more information the picture that was drawn of Garnier was that of an evil nazi doctor similar to Mengele.

The game also got a little bit harder than in Dasmascus. When I caused an alarm in Damascus it was pretty easy to run away. Climbing up the houses and hiding there was pretty easy. This changed in Acre because soldiers guarded the roofs of the city. But a death jump here and there and I was save most of the time. The fights got harder too as there were often 5-6 soldiers against me. I figured that counterattacks were a very good instrument to come alive out of these fights.

The actual kill of Garnier was a quite difficult task. He was in some sort of monastery where he did experiments on sick people. Fortunately I had helped a monk right around the corner before so that there was a group of scholars in front of the monastery that I could use to get past the guards. Finally in I witnessed a small scene in which Garnier talked to one of his “patients” who was in fear of the doctor. After that I entered the medical station and waited for the right moment to stab the doctor silently from behind. Escaping was rather easy: running as fast as possible.

That was that for Acre for now. Back with my master who gave me one of my skills back I am now on my way to Jerusalem.
