If you finish it, and still think it's good, then maybe I'll consider getting it. There's too many games coming out at the moment and the media blackout around it makes me suspicious. Maybe it's to prevent spoilers like Halo 3, but maybe not. Stupid Christmas rush.

Assassin's Creed is best described as a combination between Splinter Cell, GTA and Prince Of Persia... now isn't that worth it already? Razz

With a bit of Mario Kart thrown in for good measure.

I've heard from a reliable source that it is decent. Too late to order it now, though. Might just put it on me Christmas list.

Of course. The red shell is the ultimate assassination tool.

No...It's awesome but the beginning is either going to make you love it...or make you feel like you've wasted your money.

I know what she's talking about.

And also, the game is good. End of discussion. Now do all of us enjoy this type of game? Of course not. But the game is superbly made.

And don't forget the Mario Kart.

So did I. It's not exactly been kept secret very well, has it? In other news, this game is magnificent. Better than anything else I've played this year. It's on every format, so go out there and buy it, people. Mass Effect is going to have to be pretty damn special to top this. I kinda decided at the last minute to go out and buy a copy, and I'm damn sure glad I did.

It's one of those games where, instead of trying to make it so you can do everything, it just makes all the things you can do really fun. Reminds me of Outcast on the PC.

I heartily recommend doing what I did and run around acting like the 12th Century's biggest dickhat. I sprinted around bowling over civilians with the shoulder charge move, used the much vaunted gentle push option to trap them in small spaces or prevent them from getting up stairs, and then I rode them down with my horse.

Or alternatively consider this: I ended up attacking the squad protecting a watch tower that I needed to climb to get a look around at the surrounding terrain. I charged in on horseback, rode down the first few guards, leapt off and started to free climb the tower. The guards climbed up after me and dragged me back down. I was getting smacked around, so I jumped, kicked off the wall, flew back fifteen feet and landed perfectly in the saddle of the horse. Whereupon I galloped straight out of the area (riding down the same two guards in the process) to recover and think of a new approach.

Attempt two: Still on my trusty horse (that I stole from some unfortunate) I charged the tower, laying into the guards with my sword, cutting through them. I dismounted and started to climb the back of the tower, but the guards that had survived my assault regrouped and started throwing rocks at me as I climbed. One rock to the head later I was falling dazed off the wall. Fighting back up to my feet I forced my way through the guards and jumped back on the horse, thinking that I'd get some distance between me and the soldiers. As I passed the tower there was a second group of guards arriving, and they took the horse out at the knees. I went flying out of the saddle and landed in a heap, right in the middle of five armed and unfriendly types. Low on health, I decided to be discreet, rather than valorous. So I started running for a narrow pass nearby hoping to limit the numbers of enemies that could attack me at any one time. My horse had apparently also decided it had had enough of a beating for one day, since it galloped past me, literally heading for the hills. There followed a brief comedy chase as I tried to catch it and jump into the saddle, but Sprinting Horse>Sprinting Human, so it was quickly becoming a dot on the horizon. Still being pursued on foot, I turned to fight. A small army came at me, but after several minutes of masterful swordsmanship and counter-attacking, I was left facing one man. Screaming in panic and looking over his shoulder, he ran for his life. I turned and chased him several hundred metres, before leaping through the air and bringing him to the ground, burying my Assassin's Hidden Blade in his brain. Then I jogged back to the tower, and snuck around picking off the three guards that had remained behind one at a time. Three stealth kills later, I was climbing the tower, unmolested and convinced that this may be the greatest game of all time. If you just read all that, I ask you: Doesn't that sound like a game you should be playing?

I never did see that horse again.

P.S. Does anyone else do what I do and use the Hidden Blade to put the dying out of their misery? I can't bear their screaming and cries for help. Makes me feel like an evil bastard.

P.P.S. The free running and swordfighting are better than any featured in any other game. Seriously, go buy it.

It sounds more like an experience you only get once in a lifetime and you'll never forget. Like having sex for the first time, or being really drunk and kicking the shit out of a white picket fence...

It was given away during development in various trailers and previews. And interviews. And in the game's manual. So don't read it if you don't wanna know.

When I was fifteen I beat the shit out of a football floodlight with my fists. I was so drunk that I thought I was really in a fight. With a fifteen metre tall metal man, I guess. Confused
