    Assassin’s Creed Unity Brings More Of The Same Sneaky Mayhem

    Assassin’s Creed Unity is the first title in the series built specifically for the more advanced hardware of this generation’s consoles rather than upgraded a bit from the version released on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • Review: Assassin's Creed 2

    Ubisoft needed to publish something amazing given their anemic financials thus far this year, and Assassin’s Creed 2 delivered. Assassin’s Creed 2 was simply put, amazing. The sequel vastly improves upon Assassin’s Creed which given all the hype, was disappointing to say the least. The game plays on the strengths of Assassin’s Creed, most notably the free-running, and is… Read More

  • Assassin's Creed PC Qs and As

    I’m playing this right now, and I can tell you that it’s pretty tight. Per this IGN report, they’ve added a few new mission types (I wouldn’t know since I didn’t play the 360 version), tweaked the AI a bit, and they say that it actually runs faster in DirectX 10, which was certainly not the case with, well, any other game I’ve ever played. I can believe… Read More

  • Assassin's Creed Nintendo DS gameplay demo I like AC as much as the next guy, but I’m not so sure I’d want to play it on my DS. It looks better than I expected, but it’s not really doing it for me. Yay or nay? Read More

  • Assassin's Creed selling like hotcakes

    Ubisoft makes killer games and there’s no doubt about that so is it any wonder that Assassin’s Creed is boosting the French publisher’s sales outlook for 2007-08? It’s sold more than 2.5 million copies in under four weeks and Ubi expects to sell at least five million, which is two more than they expected. Really, Ubi? You didn’t think it was going to sell that well? Read More

  • Assassin's Creed video review has a good video review of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about this game. GT’s basic view is that the game is gorgeous and innovative, albeit a bit repetitive and with a less-than-stellar enemy AI. "Assassin’s Creed breaks new ground but fails… Read More
