Revelations PS3 Will Feature Original Assassin's Creed
In comparison to other publishers, Ubisoft has been pretty nice to PlayStation 3 owners this generation.
Take for example the excellent bonus they're tossing into the PS3 version of November's Assassin's Creed: Revelations; the "initial run" of the game will include a copy of the original Assassin's Creed.
By teaming up with SCEA, PS3 owners will be able to nab both Revelations and the title that started it all. This is especially fitting as the new entry marks the return of Altair, the protagonist of the first assassin adventure, which released back in 2007. And by the way, we have to maintain that the game in question takes a lot of unwarranted flak. It had its problems but most were overshadowed by the obvious potential, which was subsequently realized in following installments, as the fans well know.
It doesn't have the polish or depth of later games in the series, but the original AC remains one of those titles that made an indelible mark on me. It was one of the first "wow" experiences of the generation in my eyes, so say what you want.
