supersaiyan - GBTT...

word of advice...dont ever by full games on /thru online digital stores just for the fact if you dont like the game.. you are SCREWED..period man.

Dont get me wrong i have gotten digital stuff for like 15 bux or somet hing but not a full game where i shelled out 60bux for :)
I only do it for games I know I'm going go play a lot and enjoy. Like Borderlands, NBA 2k, Madden, etc. I'm a big assassins creed fan that's why I bought it digital. If BO2 comes digital I'll get that too.

and I'm going to be honest, it gets more motivated to play the games, and I really don't like trading games in. The feeling I get when Gameshit tells me they're offering $12 for a $60 game I bought a month raises my blood pressure lol. Its a nice way to avoid unnecessary bullshit like long lines at midnight releases, know what I mean? Phone Post

oh yeah most definitely man...looking out for the gamer bros man hahaaha :) dont want my peeps getting ripped off on a high priced game .


truth tho it does help with lines n all at the store and for sure when you try to get credit for games at GS they give you the low end pricin to the point where you may as well put it on store credit or keep the dang game haha.

thanks for the AC3 tip man...i am going to rip this bad boy open soon after i get a couple MASS EFFECT 3 mp games in tonite first :).

Rightious K - im torn, huge beautiful world but controls and camera suck dick. Glitches are still numerous even after day 1 patch. This has rush job written all over it.

redbox it first IMO
The controls and camera can't be that different from the other games can they? Phone Post

perhaps the default settings is the issue...sometimes you may have to adjust them to your feel n comfort.

when you are shooting/ getting shot at in every fight now the shoot/reload/draw weapon scheme feels like trying to run a sprint with your ankle tied to your nutsack.

I like how you ask for a review and 4/5 of these posts are people telling you when they are going to get the game like anyone cares? Phone Post

About two hours in.
Quite slow, but enjoying it.

Haven't played AC since the first one and I got bored of that real quickly due to the repetitiveness, but this looks so good had to give it a go.

I've just finished sleeping dogs and batman (few months ago) and am really enjoying the combat so far.
The reloading on the guns in shit. Really frustrating.

Graphics are mind blowing and the atmosphere is awesome in the towns (only up to Boston).
How they've managed to get 100 people doing different shit on the screen at once is incredible.

The glitches are really annoying. Had to restart the game three times already due to glitches. This reeks of Star Wars KOTOR 2 rush job. I hope I'm wrong.

I have had NPC's get "stuck" so you cant sneak past ares, I have had NPC randomly appear out of thin air and when I had a mission in which on NPC was suppose to lead a group of enemies into an ambush he got stuck and with him the whole group of enemies..kinda funny but really fucking annoying .

The game has like a 6 hour back-story/tutorial phase with (in my opinion) an insanely obvious twist. just got through that so hopefully things pick up.

The game is fantastic and the graphics are beautiful. I'm almost half way through the story now, and it's the best game of the series by far. Even if you haven't played the others, I recommend picking this game up. Phone Post

Now I see why it got an 8.5 rating. The ending was very disappointing. Phone Post

IF ON 360, GET THE DAY ONE PATCH!!!

 

It clears all the glitches. I'm guesing many above aren't online. I just got a chance to play today. Graphics incredible, no glitches at all.

 

They knew they had some bad glitches in 360 version, but they were all corrected with the patch available on release day. Connect and get the patch.

 

I do think that patches are bullshit, but it's really not a big deal. Just connect.

Best story and acting in any game ever. Starts off really, really, really slow, but once it gets going, it's unbelievably good.

Yeah that's my main issue, starts way too slow.

I like the hunting aspect, nice break from the main story.

The world is huge, and as mentioned, awesome graphics! Phone Post

gord96 - How much is it the 1700's story and how much is that weird future story?

also, how is the ship parts?

I'm about halfway through the game. So far, the vast majority is 1700s (covering about 20 years), with only a few small enforced intervals in the modern day. Seems like you could probably spend more time as Desmond (modern guy) if you wanted to, but I can't see anyone doing that.

There are still a fair number of glitches on the Xbox 360 version, and at first it seems v linear, but once you get into playing the main character (NOT the guy you are at the very start) and have a homestead, things open up awesomely. It's a really good combination of city stuff, wilderness (very like Red Dead Redemption in places), homesteading, and seafaring. The naval bits are surprisingly fun, atmosphere is great and it really feels like you're piloting the vessel.

Definitely the best AC game so far IMO, despite the lingering glitches and annoying bits. Highly recommended if you like epic storytelling.

The writing in this game blows all of the others away... you really start to go back-and-forth as to who's right, templars or assassins...

If you read all of the notes, Desmond's father tells him that in modern times they started to join up with the templars for much the same reason. Also, the final assassination sequence is bad ass! Also if you want true closure, go visit the two epilogue missions after the credits.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!

The 2nd epilogue is where Connor realizes he pretty much enabled the atrocities his race would face for a long time to come. Phone Post
