Hyping it AA, 8/10 on Gamespot. Game looks good, but it doesn't feel like the limitless awesome we saw back at E3 2012.

#4 Posted by PS4TW (42 posts) -

AAAAE for the PS4 version, AA for all the others.

#5 Posted by mems_1224 (47139 posts) -

AAAA 10/10

#7 Edited by lbjkurono23 (12544 posts) -

AAA boy! That seemless MP looks amazing! Also I've warmed up quite a bit to the gameplay in these last weeks :)

Same. I'm gonna say it will get either an 8 or 9.

#14 Edited by jman1553 (1318 posts) -

The more I see of this game, the less excited I become. I have no hype at all for this game, but it looks like an A.

#15 Edited by Sushiglutton (5302 posts) -

It will score 8

Its going to either be completely new and awesome or a terrible failure. I don't see it falling in the middle. Some of the online multiplayer ideas are kinda cool though.

#17 Edited by gameofthering (10257 posts) -

I think it will be about a 7.

#18 Edited by uninspiredcup (8629 posts) -

My friends the 5 step plan is rather simple...

1. 2/3 of the game will be a monotonous tutorial introducing you to incredibly simply mechanics.

2. The game play will be easy that upgrades and the entire point of playing will be pointless.

3. You will be spammed with cutscene after cutscenes of Ubisofts piss poor attempts at being mature and movie like.

4. Obligatory minority friend.

5. Shitty ending specifically designed to set up sequels.

It's a winner.

#19 Edited by CyberLips (1824 posts) -

It will get 8 here, so AA i guess.

#20 Posted by WallofTruth (1679 posts) -

Another crappy hype thread without a poll.

I say AA.

#21 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3574 posts) -

A, I suppose.

#22 Edited by heguain (654 posts) -

9/10, AAA

#23 Edited by Bigboi500 (29915 posts) -

7.0

#24 Edited by asylumni (2134 posts) -

AAA

It's got a great premise, so I've gone media dark on this one and hoping for the best.

#25 Posted by Xaero_Gravity (8737 posts) -

Put me down for AAA.

#26 Edited by santoron (7740 posts) -

Really looking forward to this.

I'll guess 8 here (lol 8spot).

#27 Posted by Cloud_imperium (3312 posts) -

9/10, AAA

#28 Posted by SNIPER4321 (10143 posts) -

according to gamespot its aaa 9/10

however im not hyping it very much. i will see what this game bring anything new to table or it will be like overhype assassins creed.

#29 Posted by Icarian (1489 posts) -

A. New IP with some ambition. Usually those have some big flaws which will be fixed in the sequel.

#30 Edited by silversix_ (14606 posts) -

Looks like Ass Creed with guns, cars and a fking cellphone. 8/10 on GS. 6/10 for me.

#31 Posted by groowagon (2806 posts) -

i think this game is a solid 9. if it's not quite as great as it seems, then i think it drops to 8, but not lower.

#32 Edited by Micropixel (905 posts) -

As interesting as this game is, I think GameSpot continues their streak of 8's with this one.

#33 Edited by Silverbond (16050 posts) -

7/10.

Haven't seen you on here for a while, how goes it? ;)

#35 Posted by Desmonic (14067 posts) -

@DropsofJupiter: That's cheating XD

#36 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16612 posts) -

Content was cut from the game for day one DLC, so I'm going to cut content from the score as well:

7/10

#37 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (7131 posts) -

8/10 all day long. Pushing the taco truck was like the COD dev pushing dynamic fish A.I.

#38 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (14092 posts) -

Completely unrelated, but I find it funny this games set in chicago. Chiraq is going through one of the worst fire arm crisis's we have possibly ever had in this country, Ubisoft is either going to play into the popularity of drill music or get eaten alive by the media.

#39 Edited by PAL360 (26877 posts) -

8.0

#40 Edited by Heil68 (44518 posts) -

8.0 is my guess.

#41 Posted by Gaming-Planet (14022 posts) -

8.0

They're going to have to complain about something that ruins the overall experience.

AA is my HYPE guess.

I spy with my little eye wearing a bowtie, multiple votes with only one guy, sigh, it makes me cry.

Ah I see, lol. I suspected that possibility and just in case, so was my post.

#45 Edited by happyduds77 (1451 posts) -

Game seems way too good to be true. It might end up being repetitive or lacking content so AA for me.

He eats pumpkin with a pimp ass bonsai next to him.

Can I get an Amen up this b*tch?

#47 Edited by Cyberdot (3537 posts) -

Multiplayer stinks. :(

Put me down for a 7. Even lower if the game is more like Assassin's Creed and is ruined by tacked on multiplayer, so I'll wait for a bit instead of buying it on day 1.

#48 Posted by lundy86_4 (43423 posts) -

AA.

I'm more excited for The Division.

#49 Edited by tonitorsi (8393 posts) -

Oh and its Ubisoft

I'm calling SlayAAA.

#50 Edited by melonfarmerz (1170 posts) -

Predictions.

1) It'll be like Sleeping Dogs. Vast open world when not in missions. Linear, on rails during missions.

2) Mechanics will be cool at first but will be super repetitive.

3) Unless you're playing with 10 friends, this kind of cooperative multi player won't work at all with randoms.

4) Missions will be: A car chase, followed by "sneak in a building and hack our conveniently placed set pieces, then hold the square button to steal the objective", followed by "drive to destination B, shoot 20 or so poor AI, enter a building, shoot some more, kill a major antagonist, leave". And then repeated 4 or 5 times until the end of the game.

This is going to be one of those games... Book it. 7.5/10. Detailed world, cool concept but repetitive, and awful multi player. AA
