After a weak showing at the past E3, many people were left to wonder if Assassin's Creed could live up to the developers' ambition and the media hype. The demo put on by producer Jade Raymond felt stilted and awkward and the game's premise didn't translate well. Many outlets proclaimed the game to be the biggest disappointment of the show and we were all left to wonder if the game's large, expansive world and complex control scheme, which both sounded great in theory, would actually translate into a cohesive and compelling gaming experience.

Well, it's amazing what can happen in a few months time. When the review builds of Assassin's Creed finally landed in our hands, we were skeptical and wary. But after spending some quality time with the game, we can safely say that Assassin's Creed lives up to the developers' lofty ambitions. So put your fears aside, gamers: Assassin's Creed is an extraordinary gaming experience that will definitely leave a lasting impression.

Reviewer Todd Melick did backflips over the game's heady mix of action and stealth. Click through to the next page to see why the game still haunts his thoughts.

And be sure to continue to the very end where you'll find some amazing screenshots and video clips from the game!

There is no denying the quality and depth inherent in Assassin's Creed. It is a stellar addition to Ubisoft's already impressive portfolio and gives gamers yet another reason to be excited for the upcoming holidays!
