PostSubject: Official Assassin's Creed Thread   Sat Oct 20, 2007 5:09 pm

Assassin's Creed
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher: Ubisoft
Website: Official site



Trying to do an official post whilst watching South African euphoria after their victory over England in the rugby world cup is not an easy thing to do. Especially after that try was unfortunately, but correctly, disallowed. But Effemmgee likes to crack the whip, so the show must go on.

But getting back to the post. The hype for Assassin's Creed has been slowly building over the past two years and at the time of writing, we're about a month from its official release. Videos have been shown, Jade (producer of Assassin's Creed) Raymond's profile has risen to the point that she is now as synonymous with this game as Cliffy B was with Gears of War and Shigeru Miyamoto was/is with Mario. So what type of entertainment can you expect from this game? Well, you take on the role of Altair, a young hooded fella during the Third Crusade in 1191. It seems that hooded youth have been a plague for a lot longer than we first thought. And as in real life, when a "hoodie" is around, trouble is not far away.



As the name suggests, you are an assassin and the main focus of the game is to assassinate 9 targets. In keeping with the historical aspects of the real-life assassins your targets are high-ranking officials of the crusades, in essence trying to spread the spread of christianity. And in this game, this is done one-on-one. Close-up. In public. In essence, you acquire your target. Try and find the best way to approach him. Assassinate him and then try your best to make a clean getaway. In a nutshell.

But where the unique selling point for this game becomes apparent is that you are also a highly gifted athlete. Think parkour mixed with Prince of Persia acrobatics and you get the idea. As also explained by Jade Raymond on her many, many interviews about this game, you have the ability to use the environment to your advantage to the extent that everything that you see that sticks out more than 10cm [In an interview with Frag Doll Kitt and Jade Raymond, Jade said anything from 2 inches is climbable -Ed], can be used as foothold for you to scale, vault or climb.



Seeing some of the action in motion is actually very impressive and if you are a fan of stealth games, expect to have many hours of enjoymentout of this gme which basically promises you unlimited possibilities to achieve your objective. On the question of graphics, I think the level of excellence in games of this generation is such, that you only comment on games which look awful, because we are such demanding consumers that excellence is now the de facto standard that we expect. Bearing that in mind, there is nothing to say about the graphics in this game that is going to raise eyebrows. The game looks stunning, is huge and also enjoys many pedestrians, who are wonderfully modelled and animated and can be used as a buffer between yourself and your pursuers after an assassination.



So, the magic of videogames strikes again. Assassins have been digitally immortalised, for your playing pleasure. Enjoy the huge effort that has been lavished onto this game. The care and attention that has been made to give you the freedom to perform your tasks in the manner that you choose. From what I can gleam, the control method has been tweaked to perfection, so performing your different abiities will be an absolute cinch. I think that this game will be an absolute hit and if we're lucky, Altair may even be able to right this wrong.



There is never an assassin around when you need one.

I've had this pre ordered since August, so can't wait for it. I'm hoping it's one that will keep me interested for a while unlike most games of recent which I play for a week or so then the next comes along and I think very little more of it.

Killing people is fun!!!!

*note to self don't say that out loud*

So got it saturday and am having great fun juming around sneaking behind people and stabbing them, plus for fun the odd huge sword fight!! This is so far proving to be what I was hoping for, I really enjoy games that you can take at your own pace (with in reason). Getting a full 1000 is possible but will take time and I know I will have a sense of I've achieved it when that last one pops up.

I do have the prima guide for it (7.99 off play.com) but am using it to enhance my time and read up on things rather than following it word for word.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the game. After reading that review on Eurogamer, I thought that the game was actually quite crappy. But good to hear that it is worth a go.

Soon, I too shall be stopping the spread of christianity throughout the middle east.

It all depends what you prefer in a game.

Do you prefer FPS's or a 3rd person Free Roamer?

One is mission based and one you can freely travel without any need to rush.

They're 2 completely different games.

Well, I've finally crumbled and started playing this game - not because I thought it would turn out to be a big mess or anything. Oh no, it's just from being rather pre-occupied with the misadventures of a certain bespectacled crowbar wielding physicist-cum-Che Guevara wannabe. If Che Guevara had been dealing with alien hordes anyway...

Right, back to the game! Well, from my (admittedly brief) playthrough it's really rather good. The only gripe I've had so far is the quite annoying way you can't move freely during what amount to cutscenes - like those with the leader of the assassins. Invisible walls! Who'd have thought mime began like that? I love the simplicity of the combat though

I agree, theres something about Assassins Creed that I can't put my finger on, but whatever it is its just right.

I don't get how some people say that Assassins Creed is one of those games that you can only play in short bursts *CoughShazCough* because once I start playing it I get lost for hours, not as bad as Mass Effect though as that can have me playing for days if it wasn't for the fact that I have a Benjamin in the background whispering 'Tea' across the room, you know in the kinda way that they think you will think its a sub-conscious though and immediately go and make a cuppa o_O

Hi,

I think the first thing to
do is load up your save, press back to open up the map and then look in the top right section of the screen. It should say your objective, for example, go to burea or intelligence collected ?/3. You get this info from the informers, eavesdropping and pickpocketing.

Try that first.

Adam
