German Mag Says Ubisoft Demanded Positive Assassin's Creed 2 Review

The COMPUTER BILD SPIELE Website for this German gaming magazine outlines what their current cover touts as an "Assassin's Creed 2 SKANDAL!" (hey look, I can read German!), saying they were told by Ubisoft they could have an early review copy of Assassin's Creed 2 only if they guaranteed a "sehr gut" (very good) review of the stealth/action sequel. They say they turned this "offer" down, and will review the game in their next issue, and it will only be deemed sehr gut if it deserves it. Thanks GameInformer.com via wearetheinternetz.

I remember when PC Gamer reviewed EE2 and gave it a score up there with Alpha Centauri and thinking it was a bought review. I felt like that issue was also the first for PC Gamer to do the "ad slips" that covered the main magazine as an advertisement for a game, in that issue being EE2. Not sure if that was the first though. Anyway, it just oozed "bribed score" all over it.

On top of the Gamespot flap, and this...it really isn't surprising. Hopefully this bites Ubisoft in the ass, but I doubt it.
