Really enjoyed AC2!

Well like some have said at least they copied from a good game. Now if they somehow stole code (Which I doubt) then for shame.



Strong accusations. It certainly looks like they copied, but it could very well just be a coincidence. We'll see.



Certainly though, no one will ever beat Limbo of the Lost...

Go google some pics of that and see if you can faintly recognize certain parts of it.

Based on the Youtube comments, it seems that the similarities are way too obvious. Then again, did the creators of Smash call out the people who made Playstation Superstars or Santa Monica the developers of Dante's Inferno? I just don't see it as very professional, unless he can see something we can't.

Those are examples of games that borrowed gameplay ideas and attempted to refine/alter them, for better or worse. They didn't steal code and animations. Not saying that the Shadow of Mordor guys did, but those examples you gave are a completely different issue.

... Next you'll hear Call of Duty developers crying because other FPS series' have used the same animations for shooting!

Gosh that's hilarious! Did they get away with it?



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

It looks a bit similar but it is not nearly as fluid as AC.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Nah, not so much!

There was also theft from Oblivion, Unreal and a bunch of other games, I don't think there was a single original asset in the entire production...

Oh, I see the difference. Guess we're gonna have to wait and see if they actually stole the code. Because I seriously don't get how they would think that they could get away with it.
