Default PC version of Assassin's Creed

Has anyone played the PC version of AC yet? Apologies if it is not yet available.

As Jigoku said above, not yet available, to my knowledge its release date is the 31/01/2008.

Hope it keeps to that.

I have it on the 360. I have been really enjoying it so far. Be interesting whether they add anything extra for the pc version.

yeah, it seems that the 360 crew have generally been appreciative of the game. The Good Game review (thanks Jigoku) seemed a bit mixed.

Will have to wait and see I guess.

I wonder why they delayed it till '08. Hopefully they will use the time to polish the PC version. There's nothing worse that a bad port.

I certainly watch GG as a show, their reviews sometimes leave me stunned. The Witcher was given 6/10 with the comment that if you want a story you might as well read the book.
For me a story is essential to a game, especially a single player RPG. The witcher is also on it's way to become RPG of the year with double the amount of votes then it's runner up.

GOTY: RPG - Voodoo Extreme

Assasin's creed same thing, the weight of the comments of what was "bad" about the game was excessive, again the comment that the "cutscenes were too long", yeah what's with all this story stuff?
I sometimes think the GG review style seems to add a lot of criticism for the sake of making the review seem highly researched.

If you GG guys are reading this, take it in as constructive criticism.

I still enjoy the show but for unbiased and well written reviews apart from the TOG ones I still recommend gamespot.

Back to AC, does it have AA on the 360? Coz that's what annoys me with 360 games, without AA they look shocking and most of them don't have it.

Still want to recommend GameSpot?

DailyTech - GameSpot Editorial Director May Have Been Fired Over Low Review Score

Supposedly he was fired after Eidos pulled lots of advertising dollars out of GameSpot due to his review.

I tend to stick with MetaCritic.
