If Ubisoft had shown us this early concept demo for Assassin's Creed, we'd have reached for our wallets. It looked great.
The video below features a number of early game videos, but most intriguing of them all is 'Prince of Persia: Assassins' at the 1:30 mark.
Clearly the shoulder-weaving, throat-stabbing skills of Assassin's Creed's main protagonists were key concepts from the very start.
This video comes in the wake of Ubisoft recently releasing some amazing Assassin's Creed concept art that showed off some of the ideas being explored before the first game was finalised.
