So, did Assassins Creed start out as books or games, or is it just all mixed together?

@egekoenig only problem is that at that time pretty much every law enforcement will have guns so theres a problem they would have to work around...

wow the idea from the comic book of imperial russia in the 19th century seems really good and interesting. I would love to see the snowy atmosphere in ac3.

I agree with you DKtroa I would have been lost if I came in on the 2nd or 3rd one I love this game series.

I hope Altair plays as well a Ezio in revelations. Its time he got a bit more ass kicking moments, since combat was repetitive in AC 1

The sounds after 3:27 give me nostalgia. Assassin's Creed was my first next gen console game and fell in love with the series.

The fall comic book. When ezio accidentally misses the hay stack and dies

I felt strange watching this thing...because I loved the concept of Assassin's Creed games and their overall inclination into telling stories with such detailed and historically accurate backgrounds...but I can't really call them epics or classics or masterpieces...first because Ubisoft is rushing the franchise and don't want to give it the time necessary for it to grow inside the players' minds...and second because aside from the 1st game's storyline, the other ones are simply forgettable. Normally I wouldn't complain about that, since the games are still very good...but in the case of AC, since the first time I heard about it, I stayed with the impression that they could be even better.

I've played and loved every Assassin Creed game so far, it was a good add-on to my Hitman addiction but still a whole new great experience.

AC2 was still the best...In Brotherhood, the story was much less epic and little character development...

Assassin's Creed sets itself apart with its brilliant conversion of history into an engaging, interactive experience. A classic series in the making.

@knayh: They wouldn't be allowed to use your ideas no matter how good they are. There are a whole bunch or risks associated with using concepts by people outside the companies payroll and most (if not all) game developers have policies in place that prevent it from happening. You could try going onto the official forums at Ubisoft's website, but don't get your hopes up. Alternately, you could try getting into the industry through QA and game testing, but again there is no guarantee you will get to work on AC.

@MEDzZ3RO i completely agree. I also like AC2 just because seeing ezio progress from novice nobody to master assassin really made me get attached to the character in a new way (ACB was still addictingly good tho)

Assassin's Creed 2 is still my favourite, largely because in Brotherhood almost everything was unlocked from the start. I know it was supposed to be Assassin's Creed 2: part 2 but I'd of liked to not have everything at my disposal from the off. A good game nonetheless.

despite the bugs,glitches,graphical errors and other things...i played every game since 2004 and trust me..nothing comes as assassin's creed EVER NEVER...really assassin's creed is the cure for mindf*ckness(Call Of Duty xD) and NoobRage (Battlefield 3),the game is being insulted by very lot of people because they never like classical and historical facts..but for ourselves(Assassins) this game deserves to be one 1# best game ever for making such storyline that really DIGGGGGGSS you in :D

One of the best franchises ever made !!! Ubisoft heard the fanbase , took one simply good game (the first AC) and turned it into an all time classic....Excellent !!! We can't wait to play the next one !!!

I think Brotherhood is my favorite. Mostly because they have made the games better and better each time, Brotherhood being the most refined. Looking forward to Revelations. Cool video. What's up with the 1888 one though, in Russia? It intrigues me.

Assassin's Creed II is my favorite single player game of all time. I love this series to death, and will always support it.

 @isshiah funny you mention that, my dad is nearly 60 and can still do more chinups than I can, can still out shoot me with a bow, and can still outwit me in every conversation with his much larger lexicon, on top of being a jazz pianist and running a successful HVAC company. I'd have to say he's pretty badass.
