Despite writing about the series and some of its offshoots (from MEGA Bloks to prop replicas) from time to time, I have never played one of Ubisoft’s ASSASSIN’s CREED games. That may have to change soon as the long-awaited first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s big-screen adaptation has  arrived, and my interest is beyond piqued – right down to the  Kanye West soundtrack.
