It’s common knowledge that movie tie-ins come under much more scrutiny and criticism than any other type of game. Most would argue (perhaps justifiably) that this is thoroughly deserved, and that they can never replace such blockbuster titles as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and God of War III. On this front I would have to agree, but why exactly is this the case?

Some time ago we saw Ubisoft officially announce another Assassin’s Creed, despite the fact that the second game has only recently been released.
Speaking to investors, the company has released some small new details on the game.
The shortlist for the BAFTA GAME Award 2009 has just been announced, and you can now vote for your favourite! This is the only award at the British Academy Video Game Awards which is voted for by the public, so it’s fitting that it’s also the most prestigious.
Some great games have been nominated, including seven titles on the PlayStation 3, one of which is exclusive (bet you can’t guess which one).
If you’re a fan of Ubisoft’s many franchises then then this is a week you might want to pay attention to. Several Ubisoft sources have commented on the fact that a huge announcement is coming up. Our question is – for what game?
Whether we like it or not, downloadable content is now a major part of the videogame industry, and it won’t be going away any time soon. Of course, PC games have had add-ons and expansions for years, but it’s only in the current generation that developers have seriously been able to bring DLC to consoles.
I’m normally completely in favour of some extra content for my favourite games, even if I have to pay for it, but occasionally I can’t help but feel slightly conned after I’ve made a purchase. Three examples would be the games listed below; I’m a big fan of all of them, but regrettably they are also all examples of how NOT to do DLC.
Ubisoft have just released a trailer for the first of two Assassin’s Creed II DLC packs.

After confirmation of a new Assassin’s Creed yesterday, more details on the title have emerged.
It will be a full game that will again star Ezio, will be developed by the same studios who developed the second game; which the majority of work was done by Ubisoft Montreal.
Assassin’s Creed was an interesting game for so many reasons.
Whether it was the incessant hype machine that rolled into every town, the column inches gained by the (mostly) bulletproof Jade Raymond, the promise of new and interesting game mechanics or the simple fact that it was the second fastest selling brand-new IP in video game history, everything that surrounded the game was intriguing.
Ultimately, however, the game itself didn’t deliver fully on all these promises and was labelled ‘repetitive and monotonous’ by many. So how has the sequel, backed up by a much lower-key but more focused marketing offensive, measured up?
Patrice Desilets, creative director of Assassin’s Creed II, has revealed that the downloadable content due for release in January and February were originally due to be in the actual game.
But due to time constraints, it had to be cut from game to avoid delays.
In case you haven’t gotten your fill of sneaking around and assassinating figure heads or you simply want to explore more of 15th century Italy, Assassin’s Creed II will be getting it’s first batch of DLC early next year.
Remember those sequences of Ezio’s DNA that were deemed corrupt? Well it turns out that someone or something has fixed them as these two DLC packages will fill the missing gaps.
