Man, loving using the War club, batter up on a red coats head!! Havent used the Boader axe yet, though...
Best AC to date. Conor is a MUCH more interesting character to me and I LOVE how both sides of his heritage are represented in the game. Running around the frontier with tree running action is so cool, hunting, climbing around, just enjoying his natural habitat. Then, yo go into the city and he his other side. Running around the frontier when the sun is out in 3D is just fucking win. Ubisoft are masters of the tech and this kind of game is just so suited to it.
Conor's skills are awesome, the rope dart is badass and I like the simplified nature of some of the new controls. I will be doing a review on this one for the user review section for sure. :D
The graphics on this game are badass. And the combat is way more offensive I keep thinking that I have to wait for a counter only to be rewarded more by being aggressive.
Just gotta look out for those Captains and their sword skills.
finnaly unlocked a decent outfit lol http://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/11/12/ujygysan.jpg
I wish more games had the screenshot function. Heck I wish both consoles had that.
fear the might of assassin turkey, eat this .http://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/11/12/ga9y9yza.jpg
Maybe those people who are farther can explain the game a little more without ruining anything. I think im at sequence 8 or 9 (about 25% completed)
Does the combat improve? Does Connor learn new fighting abilities? I really hope so, because combat can be a real chore right now. It's very rare for him to pull off any combos. I wish there was a tutorial for combat...
So far the game doesn't feel like there is a whole lot to do for side missions. In the other games you can buy shops and upgrade them to bring in money. Is there something similar with this one? I haven't played in 4-5 days because i've been busy, so i'm a little foggy on it right now. I would assume there has to be something similar.
Wtf do I do with envelopes I collected from people?
Hey guys, so I'm trying not to read too much about the game so I miss spoilers. Otherwise I'd read through the pages to see if any of this is mentioned.
Does the game still include the things like hidden chests? Also, is any of the 'busy work' still in, such as clearing districts so you can unlock the ability to restore shops and buy up paintings/apparel/weapons? Are there still side-missions like miscellaneous assassinations like the previous ones had? And finally, does this have a good share of Desmond in it? I was left disappointed on that aspect in the last game.
Renaissance > Colonies.
The gameplay is picking up but still really don't like the setting :/
The countryside looks pretty awesome but maneuvering around feels a little off to me.
I love the new setting. Also, the gameplay has been sweetly refined. I love the new controls; free running is a breeze (and is awesome in nature), combat is awesome, animations are great. There are bugs of course, but it's still a solid title and EASILY my favorite of the series.
Man, I really want to finish this game to finish the series, but it is really frustrating.
Old menachics are never retaught, so they expect you to remember everything. New mechanics are pretty much NEVER taught, so you have no idea what or how you should be doing something. Game breaking glitches (double assassinations only happens sometimes, not being able to punch dudes you are supposed to get information out of, assassin assignments disappearing from the map, making you have to find them manually somehow, guards instantly alerted to me even though i am incognito, and yes i wasn't in a restricted zone the 10 times this has happened, and many many more)
This game feels ultra rushed, the story is weirdly pieced together (nothing seems to flow, conner suddenly talks to people you've never met as if you have known each other for ages), and you seem to spend VERY little time on rooftops since a lot of them are just too far apart to be useful, apart from in forests oddly enough (again, this is a problem with the setting).
I think they shot themselves in the foot with that whole December 21 2012 angle because they had to bring this game out before then. It could of done with at least 6 more months of gameplay polish and maybe some storyboard fixes.
There are also weird mission instructions, like telling you to chase a person. What exactly am I supposed to do when i reach him? The story does not make it obvious, and nothing is said in the game. I ended up assassinating him, which then cuts to me holding him up to interrogate him like when you just knock someone out. This sort of stuff is happening ALL the time and it is driving me mad. I will pull through it because I only have 2 more sequences to finish...
The older games were definitely glitchy but NOTHING at this level!
The saving grace of the game seems to be the naval battles, so now I am just waiting for some devs to come up with a full navy game that is this exciting.
6.5/10 for me (i am about 80% done)
Assassin's Creed 2 is still by far the best and it seems to have very steadily been going downhill since then :(
That is another thing, everything that is not the core gameplay (earning money, trading etc), is either a lot more boring or suddenly so complex with little to no explanation on how it is supposed to be done.
I don't need to hunt anything other than bears. You can forget about hunting other animals to get the best weapons etc because like you said, the standard equipment seems to be perfectly fine.
I bought a sword for 1000 pounds at the beginning of the game which still trumps anything i have come across, including the most luxurious crafted swords and swords that cost up to 12,000 pounds in the shops.
I am on sequence 9 and only just getting to the second big (ish) city now seems a tad late. Reminds me of FFXIII finally opening up on the second to last chapter.
I really hope they can make a new AC series, one that has the whole story and settings planned from the beginning so they don't get into these weird situations again where the settings and the gameplay increasingly get in each others way. Also a good idea would be to not set yourself a date by which time everything needs to be done (i.e. 21 december 2012), because that's just a recipe for disaster.
Is there going to be another Assassins Creed? Since
Me being disappointed in that. I'm really hoping there will be another one! If anyone can find any confirmation I will love you!!!
Dude....spoilers.:( Not all of us have finished AC3...Well least I know the ending now...
Poop sorry! Lol I figured most people would've beaten it by now!
And I won't tell ya how it happens!!!
I say bring it on, haven't finished with AC3 yet but enjoying it enough that I would certainly love another one to be released.
Ubi has already said that the franchise is here to stay. I can't remember the article, but it said something a long the lines of there being many assassins throughout history and many stories to be told.
Reading some of the posts on this last page make me wonder about this game. I'm planning on getting a friends 360 and ACIII tomorrow so I should be able to get a good bit of time in the game. I guess if it's not my thing then I can go back to playing Revelations.
It kind of sounds like they spread themselves too thin and worked on extra AC games instead of making sure the primary release was finished (meaning all the non-numbered releases). Like I said, I should get some hands on time tomorrow so we'll see how I like it. Not sure if any issues y'all are having are PS3 specific.
