360 game visual tearing on new TV- is it the game, the TV or something else?

I got a new LCD TV, and it's 1080p and 120 Hz (previous was 1080i and 60 Hz). It generally looks great, but playing some Xbox 360 games, there's a noticeable amount of tearing I never saw on my old TV. Is this the game, the console, some setting, the TV itself or something else entirely?

The game in question is the newest Assassin's Creed
and I never saw any tearing playing it my old TV. For reference, the TV is this 40" Philips LCD
Generally it looks great (significantly so, I wasn't expected to really seen a ton of improvement over my old TV, but I was shocked), but the tearing quite sucks. I'm primarily a PC gaming person though, so TV visual weirdness is largely out of my league. Is this just because the engine can't always push enough pixels at 1080p?
I haven't tried a lot of games, so maybe it's just an issue with AC ... ? Any insights (and things I can possibly do to ameliorate this) would be much appreciated!
