Assassin's Creed: Renaissance – Does It Do The Game Justice?

OXCGN Writes:

"Assassin's Creed 2 was one of the top games of 2009, and our Game Of The Year, taking all that was good about the first game and fixing almost everything that was lacking.

Assassin's Creed: Renaissance is the novelisation of the game written by Oliver Bowden and while it is written well enough and fulfills the general criteria of re-creating the plot of the game in novel form, I can't help but be disappointed that it doesn't bring much new to the Templar versus Assassin story."

The story is too old to be commented.

I saw this at my local Borders, think I might give it a read.

I saw it for fairly cheap at Kmart of all places....

Anything Assassin's Creed gets my interest. I wish I had an itouch so I could play the only AC game I haven't yet: Discovery!

It'll be on my reading list as well, and as always, the writer knows his stuff, and is well worth the read.

This is how many major games should be followed through like. Bringing the different areas of interest together to please several mediums, getting the broader community interested in games, and to see that they are not the realm of pre-pubecent pimply faced kids in the bedroom.

"What kind of men are you? Doing the bidding of your paymasters for handfuls of loose change!…I wonder if you’ll think it was worth it after I’ve come up there, cut your heads off, pissed down your necks and shoved your faces up my figa! I’ll stick your balls on a fork and roast them over my kitchen fire!”"

And the thing is, it's based around a real-world person of the time, one Caterina Sforza, and those were the things they did in those days . . . ewwww.

I ónly started seeing novels that were based from games last year. It is good to see that games are starting to go to other hobbys as well, like reading.

Cool review, would be good to see if more gaming sites reviewed the gaming books.
