Minus a star because all the quick cuts and glitch noises make me think the whole "high-tech" part of the plot is going to become really hamfisted at the end.
I don't think my hopes for a game have ever plummeted quicker than they have with Assassin's Creed.
I actually thought it was going to be pretty bad when I saw it at E3 this year, but after playing it for a while it really grows on you quickly. The thing I hate most about it is the Jade Raymond fanboyism, which I think hurts its reputation in the eyes of people over, say, the age of 15. Still, the Prince of Persia guys are behind this and it's very much a next-gen PoP game. If that strikes your fancy then you should enjoy it.
Been playing this a bunch for work (game website). Very good. Animations are beautiful and it lets me partake of my favorite kind of combat, namely forcing a bunch of soldiers to follow me to the rooftops and throwing them to their deaths. I wish the assassinations were as intricately plotted as you had to get in Blood Money, but the combat is quite fun regardless.
As bad as movie trailers are, at least they use footage from what you're actually paying for. CGI game trailers need to FOAD.
I really hope this game isn't a buggy piece of crap

The main character appears to be more of a political assassin than the stealthy one we were all expecting. Like Sirhan Sirhan or Squaky Fromme.
Fuck this prince of persia action shit.
I hated thief too. All this planning and stealth... all to fucking PILFER some inanimate trinket. oooOOOHHH NEATo. Could have been the most kickass assassination game ever but NO it had to be "Thief." May as well have called it "The Shadowy..... MINOR NUISSANCE TO THE RICH."
Hitman PWNS fuk u all
This looks pretty lame vs. the preview/development article I read almost 2 years ago about this game in either PC Gamer or EGW.
This is supposed to be a game about the Hashishin and Hassan i Sabbah and "Nothing is true, everything is permitted"...maybe they just focussed on some more actiony scenes for the trailer but it really just looks like another stupid action game...which is awesome if that's all you want from a game, I guess, so it gets one extra star.
honestly, this game never excited me. it seemed like just another action game, which is a genre i rarely both with anymore anyway (devil may cry and ninja gaiden being the only exceptions, and even they are getting stale). why are we bothering to like/dislike/think about this when there is great stuff arriving and just arrived now? mass effect, the witcher, hellgate, crysis, mercenaries 2. that's shit is worth being disappointed later by.
-1 star for PC release being so much later
I don't know why everyone's saying it's an action game. From the little I've seen, I thought it was supposed to be more like medieval Splinter Cell. It can be played as an action game or a sneaker.
It always looked like it was trying way too hard to be edgy FUCK MY PARENTS MAKING ME GO TO CHURCH combined with creepy snuff film vibes of the creator ejaculating over the Saving Private Ryan knife scene.
That said, your stealth/assassination/acrobatics game kind of loses its thrill when you can just straight up carve your way through all the guards. Plot the most efficient route to the target, such as "conspicuously shove your way through crowd" like so much Travis Bickle.
And he gets away by...standing in a group of monks?
fuckkkkk action games, it's all about crysis and mercenaries 2
