Too Long a Story Line
6 December 2013
Summary: Too long a story line, you get anxious after a while and just want to get rid of the game. Its a great game, but there something about it, that you just don't want to finish the missions after a while. Maybe because as a society, we are accustomed to fast result, which includes a fast story line.
Summary: -Missions could benefit from a multiple scenario system -I cant comment on multiplayer as I haven't tried it -Its basically a re-skin of previous assassins creed titles, at times for the better but mostly for the worse. The game takes 2 steps forward and 2 back, one can only hope the next installment runs full speed ahead and doesn't look back -I like the idea that the dev's are open to change but I think they may be wandering too far from the series' roots.
Pros: -The naval missions are refreshing if you get tired of running through a lively early America. The scenery and gameplay slightly changes for better or worse (running in deep snow is annoying, storms feel authentic, and summer is beautiful) depending on the weather season and time -A fresh take on history. Some real events, most of which connor provides a welcome twist to are just more things to keep you involved and interested in the events and characters in the story...
Cons: -The item crafting and stockpiling ect feels bland and more of a chore than a feature, navigating the menu alone can make you just want to hunt for the extra money. Some special items are worth crafting but most require far progression in building the homestead -Side missions are basically collect items, deliver letters, and assassinate an a.i. that provides little to no challenge -Revealing the whole map and discovering some side missions, and fort takeovers require ...
Summary: I bought it because I already played the other AC games. I wanted to finish the storyline and get to know more about the AC legend. I would like to see another ending because it really brought down the overall rating. I loved the storyline the gameplay, but the ending is very bad. Without the ending I give the game a 8.5/10, but with the ending I lowered it to 6/10.
Summary: For a beginner in the "Assassin's creed series," this game would be a great game (5 stars.) For people who are familiar to the Assassin's Creed games, this game isn't that great. It's pretty much a repeat of the series. The combat system has changed a little. Overall, I was a little upset about this game. I expected this game to be a lot better.
Summary: the ending is garbage. Not to give anything away, but it almost feels like someone at Ubisoft wrote the first 90% of this game, and then handed it off to someone else for the last 10% and he just....didn't care. The game was excellent, I read some reviews that said the introduction was too long, when to me that was the point of the game....to slowly mature these characters and introduce everyone at this great pace, where you actually cared about them.
Summary: I have to strongly disagree with the other reviewer that says this is better than AC2 or Brotherhood. It is still worthy of buying or at least renting because AC is a fun interface. If you have never played the AC series before then definitely buy AC2 and Brotherhood. Brotherhood is by far the best that this series has ever offered.
Pros: The strengths in my opinion are the new scenery and new things that you can do like the active block and notice of impending strike. The scenery is beautiful at times and a nice change from the European setup. Climbing through trees and using the rope dart are neat. The snowy terrain is interesting but also a pain to run through.
Cons: The story is pretty boring and I can't get into it. It just doesn't flow too well and you aren't too eager to find out what is next. I found myself hitting the "skip cinematic" a lot throughout it. The puzzles are interesting but still don't compare to AC2 or AC Brotherhood. You also can't really call in all of the assassin's at once which I really liked in the last 3 versions. You can just whistle and they will "help you". I also miss the elaborate assassin's shrine ...
Summary: You can find so many reviews for this game all over the place, so I'll just review this as the limited edition packaged version. First off, the Connor statuette, the biggest selling point for the limited edition, is rendered in fabulous detail. It would have been nice to get a version with his hood down since most commercial statues and toys all have the hood up, but that's just my personal opinion.
Summary: I was immensely looking forward to this game, but now that I've played through it, I'm disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game, but it really didn't have that extra specialness that kept me addicted to the Ezio games. The humor that was so apparent with Ezio is no where to be found with Connor and the overall storyline was boring to me. I also really missed the economy aspects that were ever so present in the Ezio games.
