It is not widespread information, however worldwide mega star, Beyoncé, is a big Murderer’s Creed fan. I am fairly stunned extra hasn’t been made about this, given her affect, however now you realize. Her 2006 stratospheric chart topper, Irreplaceable, was at one level all about Murderer’s Creed – a sport she performed an early construct of and liked a lot she merely needed to pen a music about it, even earlier than it hit shops.
The music, which went on to the largest tune of 2007 within the US, initially talked about how the star liked Murderer’s Creed a lot that it might by no means get replaced by one other sport. In a wierd flip of occasions, nonetheless, Beyoncé has a phobia of flags, so was fairly shocked to see so many within the sport when she performed it simply previous to the discharge of Irreplaceable. This stunning twist resulted within the music rapidly being rewritten to give attention to a relationship, and the unique music by no means noticed the sunshine of day.
Bizarrely, she additionally has an irrational dislike of first-party PlayStation exclusives.
At one level, then, Beyoncé thought Murderer’s Creed was irreplaceable. However was it? Welcome to VG247’s The Greatest Video games Ever Podcast: Ep.17 – Greatest Murderer’s Creed sport that is not an Murderer’s Creed sport and you’ll’t choose Ghost Of Tsushima.

“What’s VG247’s Greatest Video games Ever Podcast?” you ask whereas questioning if the dates within the above story are correct in any approach.

Anyway, this podcast, which is why you are on this web page, is actually a 30-minute panel present the place individuals (me and a few others on VG247) determine on the most effective sport in a particular class. That is it. It is good. Take heed to it.

The very best Murderer’s Creed sport that is not an Murderer’s Creed sport and you’ll’t choose Ghost Of Tsushima
That is the subject of Episode seventeen of VG247’s Greatest Video games Ever Podcast. Right here’s a rundown of who picked what.
Tom – Mirror’s Edge
Watch on YouTube
Sure, for those who simply have a look at Mirror’s Edge with out my stage of mind you will possible surprise what I am on about. It is all concerning the parkour. Such an enormous deal was made concerning the free-running within the authentic Murderer’s Creed, and rightly so, and Mirror’s Edge seems like a first-person tackle this. It is sensible, and similar to AC, the fight is a bit ropey.
Alex – The Saboteur
The Saboteur was a kind of video games that happened in what I really feel was a kind of golden age of experimental open world video games – of which Murderer’s Creed was one. It has rather a lot in widespread with Grand Theft Auto as effectively, to be honest, however the similarities to Murderer’s Creed are additionally fairly simple. There’s stealth, clambering round buildings, and an open-ended method that feels very like the earliest entries within the AC sequence.
The first distinction, in fact, is that you simply’re killing nazis. Which is a online game staple we do not get to do sufficient of, actually. Toss in some actually fascinating and creative visible decisions, a enjoyable protagonist, and the overall originality of the undertaking, and the result’s fairly sturdy. It is a disgrace it by no means had any probability of getting a sequel – merciless mother or father EA closed down its growth studio earlier than the sport even launched.
James – Sly 2: Band of Thieves
If you consider it, Sly 2: Band of Thieves (Sucker Punch Productions’ finest sport imo) is principally an Murderer’s Creed sport, however with a racoon.
Sly is the hereditary inheritor to the Cooper gang, an clandestine organisation of gentleman thieves who’ve been preventing towards the evil Klaww gang for generations, and the similarities do not cease there. Between the three playable characters, Sly, the stealthy parkour grasp, Bentley, the ingenious gadget specialist, and large pink hippo Murray, the brawn to the others’ brains, you’ve got the entire foremost pillars of Murderer’s Creed’s gameplay too. What’s extra, in your globe-trotting journey round real-world cities like Paris and Prague, you are breaking apart prison organisations who’re abusing the semi-mythical Clockwerk elements to additional their nefarious goals – similar to the Items of Eden in Murderer’s Creed.
