I've been played Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft) WinXP starting Friday afternoon and all through Saturday & Sunday and IMHO it is the absolutely best game for 2008 (so far) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The story line and graphics are very good, but what makes this game unique (IMHO) is the game controls. They use "Contextual Puppeteering Controls." A fancy way of saying the 4 basic controls are use for different purposes depending on the context in the game, like fighting vs climbing or horseback, but they make it easy for you to know because the screen contains a Control Hud that shows you (via labels) the current use of each of the 4 controls.

Especially thanks for sticking with PC Starndard keyboard control; mouse controls character (therefore chase camera) Look, and [W][S][A][D] keys standard movement ([A][D] = strafe).

The only fault with the game is no manual nor quick saves/loads.

Your game manual could use close-ups of the huds, especially the Control HUD showing key assignments: 12:00 = [E], 3:00 = [L-Shift], 6:00 = [Space], 9:00 = [Left Mouse Button].

Glad you liked the game, not many people are as open-minded as you are.

Also, you know that special thing that made the game exceptional for you?
That 'context sensitive' control scheme?
Yeah... five words:
