@360army - the series is both of those things but for some gamers, including myself at times, there is just too much gameplay repetition, or too drawn out of a story. I would say AC's few overall weeknesses boil down to those 2 main points. I do like the franchise personally but I've always felt like each game, esp. the first one of course, had masterpiece potential were it not for a few design flaws. With III coming up, it looks and sounds like it could be the one to finally put it all together right. I know I'm far more interested in it personally than all of the other AC games combined.
i am defiantly buying this game pre ordered it when it was first announced months ago glad ubisoft is more then delivering on this copy.
looks amazing!! also as much as i love the AC series, i wanted it to play more 'stealthy' in previous games, and looks like it does now with crouching and wall hugs etc!!
i never really liked assasins creed one and sadly that put me off all of the other but this looks like the one to bring me back
Damn. October - early November is gonna be f'ing expensive. Halo 4, Dishonoured AND ACIII within the space of 4 weeks? Either gotta find a better job or start selling meth to schoolkids.
I don't get it, the branches clearly shake and lose some snow when you hit them. Obviously the effect is subdued so it's still a viable means of transportation, but especially in the beginning, you can see them shake, mostly right as you jump on and off
No footprints on the snow....wtf?! o_O Also branches don't even shake when you hit them and snow doesn't fall.Small details, but their absence looks lame...
Out of 200 people to be chosen from to play a native american, they cast one of the 3 that weren't in Twilight. Epic.
Is it just me or does the movement look hard to control, unless you just push forward and hold the free running button and it does the rest, but it looks like it could be challenging to know you have to circle around the tree you're on or to navigate a up the side of a cliff, but hopefully it flows well because this game looks expansive and magnificent.
I still need to play Revelations (which I plan to get for my birthday in August), which I am looking forward to, but I am much more excited about this. I love a lot of the new elements that I've seen added to the game. The use of the natural environments for the climbing and platforming seems like a great addition. Also the sea battles look like a lot of fun. I can't wait to see what else they've come up with to mix up the gameplay and keep things fresh.
I don't get it all the discussions about slaughtering the brits - it's just a game. For once players from the middle east and zombies will be pleased not being the 'enemy'.
Impressive! I didn't care for Brotherhood or Revelations and I hope in many ways that Ubisoft has decided that multiplayer just isn't for Assassins Creed.
I always though Assassin's Creed was all about the social stealth and planning a perfect assassination - but those features have been lost since the first game (still the best in the franchise in my opinion, regardless of it's minor shortcomings).
Climbing has had a huge improvement it seems yet combat remains exactly the same as the last 2-3 games, just with a few new animations. I'm impressed with the free-running and how the character interacts with the environment. As well as the environment looking more natural rather than showing clearing the exact climbing route into an area. But combat is a very big let-down.
Naval warfare looks cool, although I noticed different ammo types but didn't see any difference in the damage it dealt.
There are more ways to earn cash in the game, but still yet to hear anything about new ways of spending money. The problem in previous games was earning way more money than needed, and reaching a point not too far into the game when you didn't more than you will ever need for the rest of the game.
I am still yet to see a single Blue coat (colonist, whatever you want to call them) being killed by the player, and yet to see any of them being aggressive towards the player, despite promises to the contrary. It doesn't matter what colour clothes you wear, you'll still bleed "juicy" red blood all over the white snow, so that's not a good enough excuse.
Also, when did Conner become half-European, I thought he was half-English?!
Man, was I impressed when they showed this demo at the conference. It looks amazing. A definite improvement over previous Assassins Creed's games. Ubisoft doing big things.
@stoneface91 Even I admit the first wasn't that good, but after that......mate you've been missing out. That's all I can say haha
@stoneface91 who can never like Assassin's Creed? Its EPIC and AWESOME
I miss Ezio as well *sad* .... though this game looks amaaazing.
@elitejounin OMG! LMFAO good one man
@holmboy17 You ever played any Assassin's Creed game?
Haha Zombies.... but yes I was thinking the same.. totally true.
@MaxPayneKillers I like the multiplayer, its the only reason I liked AC:B. Although this is the first AC game I like for the story, but I'm still wanting to get this game because of the multiplayer. I get tired of multiplayer games being so much alike, and AC is almost the only game I have seen that his its own version of multiplayer that is unique and their own twist on it.
But this game has multiplayer as well ...
@Scorpion1813 England is in Europe...
@holdentorana74 i know lol i will most likly play them on the build up to ac3
@xsonicchaos yeah, I've played all of em, but climbing up the buildings had clear cut where you could climb, and movement around the buildings and cities you could clearly tell where you could go, it didn't look that way in video so I was just wondering if holding free run button would take care of it or if it would make you assess what you were about you do and plan a route
@hannify Maybe not. i mean when Rainbow Six Patriots debut last E3, it didnt get any bad press about it being a game where you kill americans.
@darkwolf1459 your stupid brotherhood wasn't the first assassins creed... that was the third installment
@aguy645 And Canada is in America but they get annoyed when referred to as "Americans".
English usually refer to themselves as English or British, but rarely ever European. It's mostly just the Americans that call us Europeans.
@Scorpion1813 Dude the point was cleared hours ago, you were trying to be funny - okay nice one. Now please stop replying because I'm getting emails from GS saying you keep on posting in this very very old conversation.
On the grand scale of life this isn't important, relax
Conversations end when someone stops talking, and I have more to say about your last comment. If you want out of the conversation, simply don't reply, or make a comment that I do not wish to reply to.
Anyway, my original comment was about being called European instead of English/British. Therefore, "not wanting to be called European" has EVERYTHING to do with this conversation. Saying otherwise doesn't make it so.
@Scorpion1813 I'm English so I do know that we prefer to be called British, but again this has nothing to do with anything, so once more..
I didn't think it was necessary as I thought it was pretty obvious when I said:
"And Canada is in America but they get annoyed when referred to as "Americans".
English USUALLY refer to themselves as English or British, but RARELY ever European. It's MOSTLY just the Americans that call us Europeans."
"Britains don't like to be referred to as European"
@Scorpion1813 Okay first of all you could have saved us a massive waste of time by saying you were trying to be sarcastic, it seemed as if you were genuinely being oblivious as to England being in Europe.
Secondly, I said that America was the country, North America was the continent. 99% of the World's population refer to the USA as America, the country, and NA as the continent, America itself is a dated term for both North America and South America, people most often call it the "Americas" due to the USA having adopted the name of America. Unless you're a Geography teacher I cannot see why you're being so fussy over names.
Anyway, you've said you were trying to be funny so conversation closed, just try and do us a favour and let us know in the future ^^
My original comment was sarcastic and rhetorical, and was a slight dig at the guy for saying "European" rather than "British/English". If Canadians can get pissy about being called Americans why can't the Britsh over being called Europeans.
Anyway, you claimed either America or North America to be a country, not a continent. I explained they both were and gave other examples to show this - thus mentioning other continents was completely relevant.
I linked the wiki page to show you the various ways continents can be classified. You say you know about continents but your earlier comment suggests otherwise, thus why I explained it to you.
@Scorpion1813 ..... Yeah I understand the difference beetween a Country and a Continent thanks, I actually went to School and College so I have a basic working knowledge of the world, there's no need to link me to a damn Wikipedia article.
Why on Earth you're mentioning Eurasia and Afro-Eurasia I'll never know, seeing as it has nothing to do with anything.
Your comment was "When did Connor become Half-European? I though he was Half-English", by being Half-English he IS Half-European, so your confusion is confusing in itself
North America is not a country. It is a continent that includes the US and Canada (these are countries).
North and South America can be combine and referred to as just America, and anyone from here can be classed as American (Europe and Asia can be combine to Eurasia. And even Africa can be added to that to make Afro-Eurasia).
The fact that only one country in the whole of America is referred to as American further validates my point: None of these countries like to be classified as American and Britains don't like to be referred to as European.
@Scorpion1813Technically, America and "North America" are different, one is a country and one is a continent.
And regardless, he is Half English, which also means he is half British, which also means he is Half European. Don't be so fussy lol
