    This one is very loosely based on a true person!

    That Captain Price guy was just too unrealistic. I mean, how could he be alive during World War 2 and during Operation Modron Welfare?

    It's stealth/action that's what. We don't get enough nowadays. And this one actually looks like it will be good IMO

    Assassin Creed wasnt really a stealth game... I think that was the problem, people expected that.

    So basically this is BloodRayne without the huge blades meets Splinter Cell set in WWII from what I can tell.

    Maybe it's like Sniper Elite without the sniper rifles.

    So... uh... Elite.

    I didnt look like a stealth game in the trailers, looked like a "dont-get-shot" game. to me

    It was more of a hiding-in-plain-sight type game

    Ubisoft deserved props for it because it was a different approach to the genre. You've got hiding around corners and under or inside objects(MGS) and you have light and shadow(THIEF,SC). Social stealth was a very neat idea, but they didn't deliver it 100%. Still did a great job IMO.

    Amen.. Ubisoft unfortunately spoiled me with A.C. tho.. No other games have even reached that level of awesome-crackers yet... so I just replay AC over and over Oddly, as repetitive as it is at times, it has replayability.. something I didn't find with Crysis. Still, the AI in AC is the best since Thief/Thief2 and that is making it hard for other games to compete with me now.

    Well said. I really do think that Altair could be the next Grandaddy Garret if he's the playable character in the future AC installments and they stick to what they're doing.
