08 Hid­den blade— As­sas­sin’s Creed

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - EXTRA -

They’re a bit pre­dictable, but the hid­den blades in As­sas­sin’s Creed are too beau­ti­ful not to in­clude. They make other videogame stab­bings seem rou­tine and in­el­e­gant by com­par­i­son. The fact they’re de­signed for swag­ger­ing, look-at-me as­sas­si­na­tions makes hid­ing them feel amus­ingly point­less; de­spite be­ing a con­cealed weapon, they’re about as sur­pris­ing as a ma­gi­cian pulling a dove from their sleeve. It’s as if they say, ‘Yes, I have just flam­boy­antly re­vealed my­self as an as­sas­sin—what do you in­tend to do about it?’
