 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:

Assassin's Creed Combat Tips
 You have five main weapons available to you in Assassin's Creed, each with different abilities tied to it. We'lldiscuss each of them here.
 Your fists are the tools you'll use to beat on thugs and otherwise cause mayhem without killing anyone. You don'thave a lot of combat abilities while using your fists; you can choose to grab enemies and throw them to theground, or punch them in the face, but that's about it.

Note that attacking a civilian with your fists won't cause the guards to come running (which is handy when you'retrying to perform an Interrogation mission), but any nearby thugs will stop to join in the fisticuffs. Thugs are theportly gentlemen you steal throwing knives from; they hit pretty hard, so you'll want to avoid them if you need tobeat someone down.
Hidden Blade
The hidden blade is your primary assassination tool. You have two methods of attacking with it: you can eitherwalk up to someone in Low Profile mode and assassinate them from close range, or you can run at them in HighProfile mode and perform a flashier kill.If an enemy would detect you if you approach from the front, try to get behind them for a stealth assassination.Low Profile assassinations are pretty easy to pull off on unsuspecting foes; simply get close and tap your button totake them down. This allows you to stealthily kill a target without alerting anyone nearby; even if a beggar islooking directly at you, they usually won't notice that you've just killed someone. You'll need to run away quickly,though, because if you stand around over a dead body the guards will make the obvious inference and runtowards you. Guards that are in especially close proximity to one another will usually be alerted if one of them isstealthily killed, but in many cases you'll have time to hit a second target with your hidden blade before they candraw their swords to defend themselves.High Profile assassinations involve a bit of showmanship; you'll usually jump at your target and plunge your knifeinto his neck as the two of you tumble to the ground. This is an obvious kill and will alert all nearby citizens andguards to your presence. Since you can only run in High Profile, these kills are the only way to assassinaterunning targets; simply run behind your foe while locked onto them and tap your assassinate button when you getclose to them. Eventually you'll catch up to them and ice them.
