  • I think Assassins Creed will be a bust. From what I have read, the controls are near to impossible and there are some other things that EGM wrote about it but I forgot them right now.

    • Okay, I'm not going to lie, the game looks awesome. I just watched the new trailer.

      However, I just have a real bad feeling this game won't be as good as advertised.

      Also, am I the only who sees thinks this game plays like Zelda: Ocarina of Time? The fighting seems similar except much more violent. The way he jumps and does that role reminds me of Zelda as well. I wouldn't be surprised if the guy automatically jumps from platform to platform (you know, like those posts above the ground and are connected to two buildings) like in Zelda. Also, he rides a horse, like in Zelda.

        • I'm actually a little nervous about Assassins Credd as well after reading EGM. They said the controls have not been tweaked at all, and it is very difficult. As an example, when doing the "run across the beams above the street" routine, you have to hold the right trigger, the X, and move I believe it was, the right analog stick to successfully do it. That seems a little unneccesarily complicated. Apparently if you fall, you can use the square or cirle to catch yourself, but who would even remember to? It's supposed to be inuitive, so the triangle controls your head, the sqaure your left arm, the circle your right arm, and the X your legs. I'm sure if you play it enough you'd get the hang of it, but it seems like there will be many hours of frustration before you do.

          I also read that the fighting system is a little weak. Basically just block and then counter attack. That's about it. Supposedly if you just attack, the guards will block your attack almost every time. There's a secondary move you can perform after they block you, but supposedly the timing is so tight, it's very difficult.

          As most of us probably know by now, your character is most likely not an assassin from those days, but a man from the future(supposedly) and apparently Assassins Creed may be part of a series, rather than just a stand alone game.

          I don't know, after reading that, despite the fact that I think EGM is notoriously biased towards the 360 and against the PS3, it does make me worry that this game isn't going to be that great. I'd much rather pick up a copy of COD4 at this point.

          • I'm pretty sure there also is a punch button where you can strike the gaurd or toss him into another gaurd or the environment.

            • Yea, there's a grapple button. What I meant was the most effective strategy(according to EGM) was to block and counter everything. According to them the grapple was really only effective when fighting on rooftops.

              • Uncharted got 8.5 across the board from EGM (from harsh reviewers), and IGN (a site known for being biased against the PS3) gave Uncharted a 9.1.

                Looks like an awesome game and the demo was fun as well. However, the only thing that I don't like is the fact that the game will take you only about 8 hours all together to beat (probably a couple hours longer on hard mode). But, the guy from IGN said that there is a lot of replay value in this game. I think I will buy it instead of renting it however, as it seems like just one of those types you'd love to have in your collection.

                • Assassin's Creed is pretty sweet so far...the controls are nowhere near as confusing as they were made out to be, animation isn't amazing but it is really good...I've only played like 2% of the game so far I think but it seems like it's going to take a while to play...overall, so far it's pretty much everything I've hoped it to be

                  • Assassin's Creed seemed to either get excellent reviews or average reviews. I wasn't able to pick it up today, but I'll have it tomorrow. From what I read, I think the "average" reviews were more based on it not living up to the hype than it being an average game. I'm still getting it, and I can't wait.

                    • Yeah...i said, it in another thread. It's gonna be one of those love em or hate em games...ala, Shenmue or Indigo Prophecy...somewhere along those lines. Personally, I really like it.

                      and yes...the frame rate problems were exaggerrated and the controls are very easy.

                      Thanks BoneKrusher^

                        Good to hear the controls are easier than they were made out to be. Definately makes my want for the game go up a bunch. I'm still getting COD4 first though.

                        • It's really no different than any other game, really. You just hold one button to run and press x to jump. It's as simple as that.

                            Uhh, what? IGN is not biased against the PS3. Historically, IGN is a pro Sony website.

                            The only reason people are trying to say IGN is anti-PS3 is because games that are out on both the 360 and PS3 so far are better for 360, and get reviewed as such. Other than that, IGN is still neutral/slightly Sony biased.

                              you don't know what you are talking about. Just yesterday in their review for Assassins Creed PS3, they took away points because they said it had less FPS then the xbox version and the picture wasn't as good. However, the picture and FPS is better on the PS3.

                                And your proof for this is?

                                ...?

                                Developers said from the outset that the 360 version would be better. Why would you be surprised when it came true? And it was freaking .2 points. Huge Bias.
