Re: ASS CREED III - October 30th, 2012....Bye Ezio :'(
I couldn't even get through 5-6 hours of Revelations. The pacing was off, the story was convoluted, the action was boring, the tower defense was mundane, the set-pieces were clunky, the setting was uninspired. It didn't help that it was the fourth AC game in as many years either. I've tried playing the game a couple of times since; I just find it to be an utterly uninteresting game.
Brotherhood was my favourite of the franchise, with 2 closely followed. The Renaissance period was absolutely perfect for AC, but I loved the gameplay tweaks that were introduced in Brotherhood.
I might be one of the few, but I don't have any negative feelings attached to AC1. I absolutely adored that game at the time of release. I still remember watching the first preview for the game and my jaw just hitting the floor. The game didn't entirely live up to that concept, but it was a starting point that I was happy with.
For some reason I'm relatively indifferent to AC3 though. It's a week out and I really have no inclination to play the game. I think that has a lot to do with my feelings for Revelations. It's possible that I'm just entirely fatigued with the franchise, but I'll still be getting it on day 1. I don't know if there's any franchise that I've enjoyed more this generation than Assassin's Creed.
One of the problems with ACR was the fact that it added nothing new from Brotherhood and I felt like I was playing the same game IMO.
