The first 10 minutes: Assassin's Creed

The first 10 minutes: Assassin's Creed

Last minute change! The embargo for Assassin's Creed has been lifted here in Europe too. By chance I had already 2 videos uploaded, so here they are. At Ubisoft's request I'm not showing the real beginning of the game. If you know what happens, please don't spoil the surprise for the others! More videos, including from the PS3 version, and our impressions will follow later today and tomorrow.
Update: Third part available.
Update 2: Added a very short but still interesting video comparison of the 360 and PS3 versions. Thanks to TTP for the PS3 part :)
Update 3: Fourth and likely last video of the 360 version is up. Let me know if you want to see a video of what happens in the city.
Update 6: The PS3 video is back, this time with the right framerate. Again sorry about that.
Update 7: Since some people have claimed that the retail PS3 version ran far better than the review one, I went and bought it to make sure I didn't unfairly compare both versions. So I've done another comparison video, and you'll notice that the end result is still the same. I'm eagerly awaiting some people arguing that my PS3 is either broken, my capture hardware is buggy, or I've simply cheated the video so the 360 version looked better.

I was looking forward to see some of the screens from the "spoiler" part. Im kinda interested on how that part looks like ^^

But I understand the reason of taking it out. Most ppl out there will be greatly surprised :D

Pd: Synce do us all a favor and edit your STUPID spoiler. FFS BlimBlim even asked for it.... or do you think that ppl wont read it cause of the ( ) you used?

1up has a review of it (but contains the big spoiler of the game though). To my surprise it doesn't have a high rating and the review seems fair.

I tried to watch it, but there is so much dialogue and stuff in these videos, that I am pretty off to wait and get the game and have a first experience.

Whoa, better than I expected. It's still stupid how Altair is the only dude with an American accent. Hopefully that ties into the story.
Yes it does.

hey, Blimm/Snoopers, Dudes!

Will it take much more time, for that new Gameplay footage of Ace Combat 6, or a new Making-of?

Thanks :P

dude, I read it and it's stupidly bias and the complains are ridiculous ((one above all "you have to learn how the control system works to make it work right"......WTF does that even mean???? it's not like it just does "not work" it is different from the mainstream but it still works so WTF is wrong with it? should I complain in the same way about any wii game?))

another 4 magazines/sites gave it ratings between 9 and 10, read the one on gamesradar, it's thorough and exhaustive and points out flaws without building the review on them
Commented on 2007-11-13 17:19:46
Maybe you could make a comparison video of the 360 and ps3 version. I think I'm not the only one who can't decide on which version to buy. would be really great ^^
Commented on 2007-11-13 17:21:02

I am not watching as I want to start the game fresh tomorrow (US).
Commented on 2007-11-13 17:48:27
Actually I am still thinking on what console to get this. Blim any smaaaallll itsy bitsy change you noticed playing both versions?
Commented on 2007-11-13 18:07:10
What exactly does "embargo has been lifted" mean? it can be found on the shelves? you can buy it?

or is it just tied to the videos?

I've preordered and paid the game already and I'm just wishing I'll be first to get it from the local store....

    toelessfoot @nostradamus: So 60fps makes it impossible? Environment reflections on console run at 30fps, the only blemish on an otherwise impeccable presentation. (11 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I thought this 8 player squad mode in PUBG was going to give me a reason to return... but the max party size is still 4? That's just silly. (1 Day ago)
