    I see these on Steam for a decent price...thought about getting the first two....but am wondering about playing them with a keyboard.

    Are the controls all consolized and clumbsy so you need a controller ?...if so I am going to pass

    Thanks for any input.

    Worked fine for me. Mouse is kinda slow, but increasing sensitivity helps.

    AC1 is boring and monotonic. AC2 is the best in AC series. AC:B and AC:R are like expansions.

    I have played 1 & 2 with the keyboard & mouse and got used to it. Since then I bought a Xbox 360 gamepad and it's a lot more comfortable & enjoyable experience. 1 & 2 are definitely playable with the keyboard & mouse but Brotherhood & Revelations start to have some combos which may be a bit difficult to perform with the KB+M. It's upto you but I recommend getting the wired controller .. it's worth it :)

    They are better with mouse and keyboard imo. The games themselves are not that great though imo.

    Played them both on a PC and a PS3, and I had no difficulties adjusting to each of them

    To each their own, but I feel like these games are one of the few great ones:)

    I loved all of them. I actually played them all with a 360 controller. I just got Revelations for xmas, so I look forward to starting that soon.

    Currently playing Revelations.
    AC is one of my favorite series nowadays, you really shouldn't miss any of the games.

    I play it fine with keyboard + mouse, tried with a controller once but couldn't really get used to it.
    The Assassin's Creed series feel more confortable to me with keyboard + mouse than with a controller, like the Batman Arkham series.

    Its on of the best series there is on PC,well,nowadays....

    As for KB+mouse combo,it works great.
    The game is really optimized for it.
    I tried playing it on gamepad and it just didnt feel right.

    The first part of the game is the best.
    Misterious and unexpected to the end.And thats what i like about the game.

    Second part dissapointed me mostly beacuse it was in renesance Italy which i personlly dislike and americanized italian language is anoying to me.

    Third part is better because you have one hudge city(Rome) and a nice story in the game.
    Also it ends in an unexpected way.

    The fourth part,Revelations, i disliked the most and i only got it so i could figure out the story.

    Anyway,a great quadrilogy and i advise you to play it if you can :)

    May I ask why you don't like controllers?

    Mouse & KB are great for AC

    Controllers are not needed at all for these games. (if you're not a couch assassin that is)

    I just dont like beating buttons for some reason...much prefer keyboard and mouse.

    I may pick up the first game of e-bay, it is dirt cheap.

    That way I can follow the story better, I suppose.

    The mouse and keyboard work fine for the Assassin's Creed titles. But, it's still a matter of personal taste. And me, I actually prefer the gamepad over the mouse and keyboard for this series.

    Very odd. Considering I'm usually one of the first people to claim how much better controls are on the PC. :)
    But, since I remap my controls for every game first thing... AC can be a bit annoying. Moving my movement keys from WSAD to EDSF forces me to remap almost everything. And with how AC's controls are... I still haven't found a good, comfortable setup.
