Assassin's Creed Preview

Worthplaying has posted a fairly detailed preview of Assassin's Creed for the PS3. Without a doubt, this was the PS3 game of the show at E3.
The game looks awesome. I am hoping the game truly lives up to the hype it is receiving.If the final look of Assassin's Creed bears any resemblance to what we saw at E3, it has the potential to set the standard for PS3 graphics in much the same way Splinter Cell did for the Xbox. The minutely etched stone walls and smooth animations of Altair and the NPCs were every bit as thrilling to regard as Sam Fisher shooting out his first fluorescent light in the original Splinter Cell demo level. Ubisoft was quick to discount the Splinter Cell comparisons with regard to gameplay, however, pointing out that this game's not as much about visibility meters and stealth mechanics as it is about engaging with the world socially and emotionally as well as sneaking around in the finely wrought shadows.
