Images of Assassin's Creed DS

Ubisoft releases the first screenshots of Assassin's Creed on Nintendo DS. For real. I'm not kidding. It doesn't look ugly at all actually, and after the XBLA Prince of Persia remake, I'm willing to give the developer Gameloft a chance.

Take away the impressive graphics and we're left with something... uh, not very impressive.

Kudos to them, it does look nice.

It also looks much more colourful than it's console counterparts.

Is this going to be a retelling of the AC story or is it going to be different?

I wish they'd stop making shitty hand held versions of all good games. Not saying that this is shitty, but i do have my hunches. Oh well, for a DS game i guess it looks pretty good.

it's not going to retell AC, it's going to be back story on Altair

It's a prequel to AC.
It tells how Altair became a master assassin, I would assume.

A way to lure in people who actually played AC to play a crappy game with the only incentive being to learn the rest of the story.

AC's an awesome game. If you don't like it, don't whine here. The DS game looks pretty good too.

Well you can't really judge a DS game on screenshots alone so I will wait for a video.

i have an xbox 360 for graphics, so as long as the DS game is fun to play it really dosnt matter how good the graphics are, otherwise buy the 360/ps3 version that has much better graphics then the DS lol.

i love my DS, buckets of fun.
i actually find the DS games without awesome graphics are usually the much more fun to play. but mite be good! as long as it makes use of what makes the DS unique

I wonder if this will bore me to tears as much as the console version did.
Commented on 2008-01-16 05:25:28
Yeah, this looks nice for a handheld

Of all games to ask of gameplay over graphics, it shouldn't be assassin's creed.

    GriftGFX The biggest difference to me is how your character POV changes. I don't mind third person games it just changes engagements a lot when people can see around corners and over high cover etc. (1 Hour ago)
