Edge Interview: Designer's Creed

"Ubisoft Montreal has succeeded in welding a game to what once felt like a proof of concept," we said in our review of Assassin's Creed II, and the many bountiful changes the title has seen over its anaemic predecessor can be placed at the feet of its lead designer, Patrick Plourde.

This game is leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessor. This game is officially Ubisoft's first AAA title. Congrats Ubi. I almost gave up on you after R6V2.

Man, I hated those town criers in the first game! I got my self in a lot of trouble killing those dudes just to shut them up!

Yeah for the short bit I played, that really annoyed me. This game has the stupid singers. I see them coming and I get my fist ready and knock them in the mouth before they get a note off.

AC2 was a great game.
