Assassin’s Creed exclusive tracks from Ubisoft

12 11 2007

Assassin’s Creed is just a few days away from hitting store shelves, much to the delight of many a gamer. Ubisoft was kind enough to whet gamers’ appetites with a preview of a few songs from Jesper Kyd’s magnificent score. The songs are called City of Jerusalem and Jerusalem Horse Ride and can be streamed or saved for your aural pleasure. The songs really made me reflect on how far game music has come — these are lush, expansive compositions that match the atmospheric excellence of full feature film scores.

Only in Japan: Assassin’s Creed is only on the 360

12 11 2007

Ubisoft is launching Assassin’s Creed this week. Meanwhile Japan has to wait until November 29 to try it out, but unlike the multiplatform release in North America, Ubisoft only has a date for the Xbox 360 version. The Playstation 3 release is probably still coming out.

Siliconera finds this news rather interesting since Assassin’s Creed was previously believed to be a Playstation 3 exclusive and it’s made by a western company. Now in one territory the tables are nearly turned, Assassin’s Creed is Xbox 360 only in 2007.

Assassin’s Creed: Perfect 10/10 in GamesRadar Review

9 11 2007

From GamesRadar’s review:
“With its riveting story, beautiful visuals and surprisingly lifelike world, Assassin’s Creed is an incredibly deep, enjoyable game that kept us addicted from beginning to bizarre end. It’s bogged down by a lot of monotonous repetition and a fighting system that’s sure to frustrate hack-and-slash fans, but neither of those things really diminished our enjoyment of the game, and both were far outweighed by the thrill of tearing around its enormous cities and carefully planning spectacular assassinations. It might not be for everyone, but playing through Assassin’s Creed still stands as one of the most outstanding gaming experiences of 2007.”

Assassin’s Creed Game Informer Review – 9.5

8 11 2007

If only to experience the unique world and amazing movement and combat, gamers owe it to themselves to try Ubisoft’s big holiday release. Its stunning visual style, high concept story, and wildly open level design are like nothing else, even if too much repetition begins to frustrate in the later hours. It’s a game people will still be talking about five years from now. Come to think of it, they may have a lot more to talk about by then.

Famitsu reviews Assassin’s Creed: 37/40

3 11 2007

As if we needed further proof that November will assassinate your wallet, Famitsu has heaped glowing praise atop Assassin’s Creed. According to a forum post on the Ubisoft forums, Famitsu has given the title a very respectable 37/40, with the individual reviews standing at 10, 8, 9, and 10. Incidentally, Famitsu handed the same overall score to Halo 3. There are some tiny scans of the reviews on the forums, but our Kanji is a little rusty. Thankfully, someone went to the trouble of summing things up. Apparently, the Famitsu reviewers were impressed by the story, presentation, and addicting acrobatics, noting that Assassin’s Creed is a true next-gen title. Some knocks against it are the one button combat, confusing map, and occasional camera problems. All in all, it sounds pretty solid. Good news for gamers, bad news for bank accounts.
