Did anyone see this? It's pretty cool. It's done in the exact same way as the movie 300 just without all the Spartans and Persians, LOL!

I didn't play the first Assasin's Creed because I heard the storyline was kinda silly. (Something about a time travelling bartender's bloodline?) But this movie they made was really good! I might actually pick this up?


P.S. Is that Hank Azaria as the main character?
EDIT: Rrrrgh I can't go back and change my thread title typo??

That's not even close to the Assassin's Creed story. :clap:

It's one of the more interesting stories in video games around at the moment IMO. I know there's A LOT of AC hate out there but personally I loved it. :p

Nope, no time travel involved. :comp:

Almost any story can sound crap when it's inaccurately summarized in one sentence. ;)

Are you talking about Assasin's Creed 2? Did the same studios that made the 36 minute Youtube video also make in-game footage?

That movie was more enjoyable and had more depth than anything Hollywood has produced all year.

I enjoyed sitting here watching all those videos. And they did the HD proper too...unlike most YouTube videos.

Ok not "time travel" "transferring his conscious through time and space into relatives a thousand years ago. Better?

And the first game did really suck on PC (then again I am a KB jockey now not a button masher anymore)
