Would you buy Assassins Creed ($5.99) or Hero of Sparta ($4.99)?

I was wondering your opinions since both of these games seem similar and very close in price which makes it hard to choose.

I've gone to a lot of review sites and some gave Hero of Sparta high marks yet they bash Assassins Creed which I am not sure why since they seem so similar.



Assassins creed at $6 or Hero of Sparta at $5 ?

Thank you for your help.

They are both good games. HoS is more of a 'button-bashing' 'hack and slash' 'kill anything that moves' type game. Whereas AC involves more varied gameplay and requires you to think, rather than constantly tap the screen. Personally, I'd go for AC myself, even though the price is slightly higher.

Assassins Creed, no doubt. Why? Because it has ALOT more varied gameplay than HOS has: climbing, awesome combos and counterattacks, cooler graphics than HOS has, awesome framerate, no bugs or anything, AND much more levels. IT's worth it even though it's 1$ more expensive than HOS, its awsome. Get it.=)

Would you guys recommend Assassins Creed even if I already finished the XBOX version? Is it worth playing another variation of the game?

P.S. I LOVED the XBOX version of Assassins Creed. Thanks!

Ya but don't compare the two.
They are kind of different.
The xbox version is more freedom while the iphone/itouch version is more strict.

Well... I have only played the computer version and i must say that the iPod version of the game is totally differen (so i am quite sure that the XBOX version is totally different, too.) I'd say AC is alot better than HoS!

HoS - Mindless hack n slash
AC - Ruling the hack n slash with sense

Get me a Lite version!
