Re: Assassin's creed released today.
I picked up a copy and started playing. This is the best "quality" release I've seen in months. I'm not seeing any bugs and it plays super fast on my rig fully maxed out. The gameplay is well balanced too.
I actually think the AI is about right. True that walking slow or riding the horse slowly conceals the character but he is wearing a hood so I doubt many can see his face. Seems fairly realistic...at least enough for the game.
I was a little surprised about how the game is presented though, with the character actually being from present day and having his ancestors memory read and all. Thats a little weird.
Overall this is a quality game that is about an 8.5 on my scale.
