    I know this may seem like a bit of a long shot, but I was playing Assassins Creed, and one of the window fixtures, which is repeated around the first big city you get to, struck me as looking VERY similar to the front of G1 Optimus Prime's cab. Check out the pic:

    Just thought I'd share and see if you guys thought it may have been done on purpose or not.

    That's too close to be a coincidence.

    Good eyes.

    Thanks guys- I wanted to say for sure that it was a deliberate reference, but I also wanted to make sure it wasn't my overractive fan mind playing tricks on me.

    Wow, impressive. I am thinking of getting this game, aside from the Prime reference, worth it? (of course Prime clearing being in it is a great bonus).

    Well, I haven't played THAT much of it yet, but here are my thoughts so far. The graphics are very impressive, the story is intriguing so far, exploring the areas is fun once you get used to the control setup, combat doesn't seem so great, and the overall atmosphere is done well. Two other gripes I have are a really bad menu system that just seems a little vague with what does what, and there seems to be little reward for spending the time to collect the numerous collectables in the game (flags, citizens in distress, and viewpoints). So far I say it's a good game, but it does have some ups and downs and I want to play a bit more before I pass full judgement.
