Few non-sequel games are the subject of as much hype as Assassin's Creed has been. While games like Halo 3are expected to garner their share of the headlines, Ubisoft has done a great job of keeping Assassin's Creed infront of gamers during the run-up to its release, whether by its secrecy about the game's sci-fi storyline, its long-time silence on whether or not it would appear on the Xbox 360, or by the somewhat controversial decision to setthe game in real cities of the Middle East during the Crusades, an era of history that has interesting lessons fortoday's world.Of course, it shouldn't be implied that Assassin's Creed is coming out of nowhere; it is, after all, developed by themassively talented Ubisoft Montreal studio, creators of the Splinter Cell and updated Prince of Persia games. Itbuilds on the combat systems of the Prince of Persia games and melds them with next-gen graphics and a tautstyle of acrobatic, open-ended gameplay for a title that's quite a bit of fun to play.GameSpot's Game Guide to Assassin's Creed features the following items:
