GameSpy: Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition PC Preview

GameSpy writes: "Assassin's Creed was one of the highest-profile releases of 2007, and one of the most polarizing. Proponents praised its exquisite environments and commented favorably on the expertly-crafted assassination sequences, while the game's detractors were highly critical of the way its "investigation" elements gradually devolved into tedious, repetitive busywork. The soon-to-be released PC version will theoretically give Ubisoft a chance to redress the criticisms by fleshing out the gameplay's lower points, while simultaneously reinforcing the good stuff courtesy of higher-end hardware. Judging from the preview build that's making rounds in the office, though, it's evident that the publisher has taken a conservative approach, delivering an essentially straightforward port.

The good news is that the controls have made it through the porting process in great shape. It's a bit surprising, to be honest, as it wouldn't be at all unreasonable to assume that controlling a character as mobile and explosive as Altair would be a sketchy proposition without the use of twin analog sticks. But through smart use of "shift" states, you'll be doing the medieval freestyle walk as adroitly as any joypad jockey. Similarly, due to its high-returns-for-modest-inputs ethos, Assassin's Creed's combat hasn't skipped a beat either."

-Controls work surprisingly well on PC

-New mission types seem to exacerbate the game's worst elements

if the pc version is less repedive then the 360/ps3 one then im getting mad, if we dont get a chance to play the game in the "directors cut" version.

I honestly think the game was released to early and it seems i was right as the pc version seems to get the missing love ac had needed to be complete on consoles too it seems.

but its ubi so i rather doubt they changes anything at all. ubi sucks at porting games tbh

I dont think we'll be seeing a console directors cut edition...why would you want to play this game over ne ways it's basically the same repetitive assassinations all over again...

Lets hope Ubi takes it time with the sequel...cuz this game has so much potential and im sold on the story already.

Bring it on, Ubisoft!
