Attention crybaby fanboys, I hope someone steals one of your ideas in the future and gets uber rich from it, leaving you nothing, then you'll know what it's like. STFU.

Unfortunately, everyone talking about this book ripping off Assassins Creed are wrong. But the storyline in Assassins Creed does not resemble that of this book.
The only thing in this book that is
similar is the Animus, which is not called an Animus in this book.
The Animus (I might add) is not actually the authors idea entirely. It's based on a scientific theory that we could one day get a better understanding of what life was like through the eyes of our early ancestors by accessing hidden memories in embedded in our DNA strands. Of course, there's nothing to go on so it remained nothing but an interesting theory that was not widely publicised.
So, lets take this into account and take Einstein's theory of time travel. We could say that (and don't quote me on this, I don't know which film or book was first to introduce the concept) The Time Machine is liable to sue back to the future for using a similar concept as they did. Would this be a plausible law suit? I understand that this book should not be discriminated based on the fact it is the cause of the current law suit filed against Ubisoft. But I certainly understand the frustration that many people are feeling as a result.
If the storyline was exact of similar to the story you find in this book I'd understand, but the fact is. Nothing in this book apart from the machine used resembles Assassins Creed.
I mean, I didn't see Rockstar sue THQ because they used Helicopters in their game after they where used in Grand Theft Auto.
Then again, if you want to go for theoretical or fictional items and machines then we might start creating a long list for producers of Star Wars so that they can sue Star Trek and other space themed, Sci Fi movies.

Hello people of the internet. My name is Connor. Coming from the revolutionary war to shoot my own video game was awesome.Just ask Ezio. I don't know why this dumb fuck is suing my developers. I think this book is taken from assassin's creed. I didn't read first and last 365 pages (A.K.A. all of them). If you don't drop your charges Ezio, Altair, all of our Mexican illegal immigrants friends, and i are gonna assassinate you John L. Beiswenger. Watch out.

There is obviously a major resemblance between this book and the Assassins Creed series. I am a huge fan of Assassins Creed and have been since the first game came out. But we must be logical here, the first installment of this series came out in 2007 which is 4 years AFTER this book was published in 2003. Therefore it is not possible for the author of this book to have plagiarized any ideas from Ubisoft's game, but it doesn't mean that Ubisoft got the idea from this book. Ubisoft is a very prestigious company and have released copious amounts of best-selling games, they wouldn't need to COPY ideas from a fairly unknown author. What I'm saying is that there is no need for conflict in this situation. While there are two VERY SIMILAR concepts at hand, the one is not necessarily derived from the other.
Note: I'm only 16 years old, so if you cannot see the logic in my argument, then I'm sorry.

I like how everyone is slating it for ripping off Assassins Creed, which came out in 2007 and this was published when? Oh yeah 2003. I will give it a shot as I enjoy the whole Assassins Creed storyline and concept, I will return at some point with an honest review...(tm 30/5/12)
