    If anyone was shocked by this, they need a head check.

    Side note. Jade Raymond pics please.

    If its following the story of the first one expect to go back to the time of the cusades.... but maybe more modern with the final game if its a trilogy :)

    Rumour is that it's set a few hundred years after the last one, probably moving from the 12th century through to the 15th or 16th.

    Assassin's Creed was set in the 12th century??!! Funny I thought it was set in the future. :rolleyes:

    Not really such a bad thing, is it? I thought they did quite well capturing the look and feel in the original AC of 11th Century so I figure they do an equal if not better job on the 13/14th Centuries.. if said rumour were true.

    I only hope the game *isnt* based completely in modern day, otherwise it'll just be another GTA/Saints Row clone.

    EDIT : oops, I meant 12th century, not 11th..

    Really? What game were you playing? While part of AC is set in the future, the bulk of the game is set in the twelfth century in the time of the Crusades.

    I think I said in my original review that it was fairly obvious that the whole Abstergo/DNA memory storyline was so that they could set sequels in other historical settings.

    The problem with setting a game in the 15th or 16th centuries is that comparisons to the world of the Thief games is inevitable. Don't see how you'd ever get round that, though.

    It would be good to base a game around the period of Queen Elizabeth, and all the intrigue and assassination that went on in her court.

    Jade should be a star in a porn movie, I'm 100% convinced that it will sell more copy's then AC

    No, he's right. It's all in the future.

    To bad this game was really just below average - I wonder what the stats are for people turning in the game for store credit or something. I know plenty who won't care for a sequel.

    Though enough people probably liked the game enough to buy the sequel.

    one would hope they can avoid the repetetive aspects of the original, while keeping the stuff they did right. I defy anyone to honestly tell me that they weren't amazed the first time they climbed a tower (omg he is actually grabbing outcroppings!) and saw the vista, before plummeting off (weeeeeee!).
    Likewise with anyone who tries to to tell me they didn't giggle like a schoolgirl the first time they crept up behind a guard and stealth-killed them :D
