E3'10 Rambles: AssassaCree
I've seen two videos for the new Assassin's Creed, one from the Ubisoft press conference, and the other from the show floor. I was impressed with the opener, and saw a lot of cool things to get me emotionally engaged in the the story, especially if you had played through Assassin's Creed 2, building up your town, and a relationship with your uncle. But the multiplayer demo gave me a "gank quickly" vibe that throws a wrench into the promise of "stalking your prey" in a multiplayer environment, leaving little reason to choose it over a more-visceral shooter. I hope my fears are unwarranted!
