Assassin's Creed Brotherhood 'Manual' Has Been Reduced To This

Publisher Ubisoft is protecting Assassin's Creed Brotherhood buyers from dangerous staples by whittling down the game's manual to a single sheet, scored and folded for your convenience. This must be Ubi thinking "green".

Early recipients of next week's multiplayer-focused Assassin's Creed game have found they'll make do with the in-game manual, as clearly referenced on page one of the insert, to answer any questions they may have about the game. In Ubisoft's defense, Assassin's Creed's contextual controls do not translate well to the printed page and some of us prefer our introduction to gameplay mechanics doled out via smart in-game tutorial.

But, man, one-page? That's shockingly thin.

Thanks, NightMystic.
