Assassin's Creed II Magazine Ad: Best Game Ad Ever?

You've probably seen this by now, but this is the single greatest piece of video game print advertising I have ever seen, and I just had to share it with you.

Here's the kicker though. The first page is glued to the second one, so when you turn the page, you actually feel yourself rip off the guy's head, and the whole thing is accompanied by a biologically accurate tearing sound. Turning an advertisement into its own interactive mini-game? Bravo, Ubisoft. Bravo.

Can you think of a game ad that tops this one?

I loved AC1, im definatly going to get number as there are a few things that look VERY intense :D

Here's the question for me though, do I get a Ghetto Controller or AC2 first ? :P

As for the book advertisment thing though, very clever :D

I think it is very clever. People are always thinking of better things to make news more interactive.
