Until recently, the "next gen" of video game consoles was seriously underwhelming me, both in terms of graphics and in terms of actual games. But have you seen this new gameplay footage of Assassin's Creed? Now that's what I'm talking about!
It's great to see some visuals that are as impressive in art direction as they are in technical prowess. And more importantly, it's great to see the more powerful processor being used to open up new kinds of gameplay, as well as beefing up graphics. The crowd interaction looks amazing, if perhaps a bit clunky at this stage.
The crazy sci-fi element exhibited by the game menus just seals the deal for me. This is officially the first non-Wii game of the next gen that has me excited. Let me know if you find it interesting, too! (Or alternately, if you think it looks terrible.)
Sam's Story continues on Monday. See you then!
