IM PLAYIN discusses why shadow of Mordor is more than just an alternative to Assassin's Creed, and how Ubisoft could even look to the game for inspiration.
"When Shadow of Mordor was first teased, all of those months ago, there was a lot of talk about how it resembled Assassin’s Creed. I must admit, when I first watched the gameplay demo, I too saw Assassin’s Creed shining through. Since playing it, however, that Assassin’s Creed Deja Vu hasn’t made an appearance… well, not to such an extent that I’d call Shadow of Mordor a clone of the game. Sure, it’s similar in places. But, in the most part, Shadow of Mordor outdoes Assassin’s Creed in almost every aspect."
