CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Assassin's Creed

holiday_bug2007Just to follow up on my Xbox 360 Elite and HD DVD player recommendation from yesterday, I wanted to recommend Assassin’s Creed for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. But it seems as though the PS3 crowd are having some troubles with Altair freezing in mid-jump along with a handful of other glitches. This, however, should not detract from the game itself, which is fantastic.

The AI in AC is unlike any I’ve seen before. For example, if you’re walking through a crowd and bump into someone a little too hard then the surrounding guards will take notice and come pummel your ass. On the other hand, you can easily find allies within that same crowd that will help you escape. I can’t stop playing it and any plans I have for the night have been forgotten or rescheduled. The introduction alone is worth the money.

Game play is smooth and graphics are wicked crisp. The story line is very intriguing and without doing any prior research into the game it caught me off guard. You don’t need me to really review this for you. The hype is well deserved and it’s just that damn good. Take a Leap of Faith or grab a Gamefly subscription and check it out.

BTW- Ubisoft is looking into the glitches for the PS3, but it just goes to show you that the Xbox 360 far superior. Heh.
