First Assassin's Creed: Lineage short is... good!?


10:40 AM on 10.27.2009



I think we can all agree that videogame movies are, for the most, junk. So when Ubisoft decided to matters into its own hands, working with Hybride Studios for a series of Assassin's Creed shorts, I was... skeptical. 

But the results, as you can see in this first of the three Assassin's Creed: Lineage episodes, are surprisingly decent. Not Hollywood blockbuster decent. More along the lines of those weird television adaptations of Shakespeare you'd find randomly only PBS -- decent acting with modest production values. Oh, and with special effects by the folks who worked on 300 and Sin City. So yeah, it looks good.

So check it out; it's a great way to spend the next 15 minutes of your life.
