My experience with the Assassin's Creed games consist of being bored to tears and really frustrated with the controls.
First time I played AC1 my friend lent it to me. After doing 4-5 sequences of the same thing over and over again (eves dropping, collecting flags etc.) I got bored and never played it again.
My friend then lent me ACB. I got to the Colosseum chase before I got bored and frustrated. The story was slow to the point it seemed to never progress and when trying to jump in one direction I'd end up jumping off a ledge and have to do it all again.
I then played AC3 through PlayStation Plus (EU). Oh my god. Got to sequence 10 before I deleted it. Had a great chance to be a revenge story but screwed it up so bad. Same frustrating control scheme, and I noticed how aged the gameplay was by then. Why can't Connor sneak up to someone but decides to crouch ever so slightly in a bush?
Agreed. Publishers should take time to make the next installment of their game. Making money is usually whats all in their mind. Gamers would be better of waiting for two years between games rather than having the same game with better graphics and a few tweaks every year.
@udubdawgz1: what I meant to say was I've had enough of titanfall everywhere. Assassins creed should have gotten that much coverage. (Not saying titanfall is bad in anyway though. )
I really hope Ubisoft gets back on track with the franchise. They have taken a small step in the right direction with Black Flag. Now its time for a leap.(In the right direction that is) :P
Anyone heard of Assassin's Creed: Brahman? Story seems stupid but the guy looks pretty cool.
@Kevlar101: Achilles was the strongest character of ACIII. Which also is that problem(IMO) because he isn't the main character of the game. I believe that Connor should have been made better, much better actually. In Black Flag, Edward was a very good character but I wasn't able to connect to him the same way I did with Ezio and Altair. He fit the story obviously but I never got a feeling that he wanted to be an Assassin till nearer to the end of the story. In AC, you want to play as an Assassin not a guy who wants to loot all the time and make money. Again, just saying that Edward was a good fit for the story and not a bad character but feels odd for the franchise.
@lumzi32: What I meant by not hyped is that no one thought it would be that big and were like "meh, its alright." Nowadays some games are given the center of attention months before their release. I just think Assassin's Creed is one of those franchises that should be given the limelight. Much more that what its given. AC IS AWESOME!
