According to the guys over at WPCentral Assassins Creed has dropped in price and is now $2.99, down from $4.99. The game is not everyone’s cup of tea but has been a huge success on other platforms. Like many Windows Phone apps you can try before you buy but I’m going straight in for the plunge and making my purchase now. Maybe we will bring you a video review later in the week.
