I thought about this for a while, and this is quite literally the most disappointing game in my entire life. It took the title from Cosmic Carnage for the 32x. I was more let down by this game, considering the hype and enjoyment of previous games.

There are numerous glitches and irritating aspects of this game that people have listed. I think one of the worst is when you are completing a mission near the Frontier or Homestead and they decide to START YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FUCKING RIVER to reach the new mission.

Your options are

A) Foot it around the water
B) Swim, more slowly across the water

It's a retarded waste of fucking time, and I'd damn near rather spend my afternoon dropping pencils in the asscrack of fat guys in a convenience store, bending over the ice cream cooler, trying to reach the last Half Baked flavored Ben & Jerry's ice cream. I mean, did they test the game at all? So someone actually thought "Yeah, people will love hoofing it through 2 feet of snow at a slow pace to reach the next mission, it'll give em a chance to kill a beaver. Let's leave that in!"

Fucking dumb. People can dislike Revelations all they want but that game kills this game for three reasons

A) Ezio is in Revelations, and not in ACIII
B) No shitty wilderness (in excess)
C) Ezio knows how to fight, Connor seems to forget how. In the middle of a battle.

If they do anymore Assasin Creed games (and they will) they need to do more hidden blades to people, and less buck knives into beavers. I get they were trying to make the game "new and different" but it didn't work entirely first time around.
Okay, I give you that, Revelations had lot better characters, well considering that Ezio has more charisma in his little finger than all the characters in AC3 combined, but Revelations had almost no side quests at all. I finished everything in that game in less than 9 hours, I kept checking the map if any side quests or anything were available, but no, unless I wanted to renovate the whole city and keep sending my recruits to missions, I had absolutely no reason to continue that game.

Re: ASS CREED III - October 30th, 2012....Bye Ezio :'(

Ok fair enough, less side stuff, sure I can go with that.

Did you enjoy the story and Altair stuff from Revelations, and the ending to it John? Those, to me, were huge, huge strengths and I think my favorite moments in the entire series were the flashback missions to Altair. Not necessarily because he was better than Ezio (I liked them both, hard pressed to pick whom I liked better) but because I almost felt like I got to live Altair's entire life. I saw him as a young man, and an older man. I experienced his highs, his lows. I saw him leave, return, reclaim leadership, Maria die, his interactions with his children, and his final "mission" to die in his chamber and leave his secrets for Ezio. I suppose a very similar feeling with Ezio also exists, and watching Ezio from AC2 to the final mission of his own (ironically, in the same library where Altair's last mision was) where he discovers and leaves the Apple of Eden.

And I also agree that AC:R had far more likable characters than ACIII. Compared to AC2, AC:R might seem weak since it's a later time and many of the previous characters are gone, but Sofia was fitting and Sulieman was fitting for Constatinople (a great location IMO) and Ezio is 10x > Connor. Sure the AC3 characters are more known to most people (should be to Americans at least) but Connor is kinda dull IMO. I saw him as a youth and his mother die, but I thought it was a real corny scene. She has a beam on her, some clown comes in, takes Connor, doesn't help her? Yeah, ok sure. Ezio's father dying somehow made more sense I suppose.

I can understand why people may not of liked AC:R as much, but some people straight up dislike it, and I still think it's as good as the other two games. Tower Defense sucked, but the Altair missions make it better than Brotherhood IMO.

I can't list AC3 above any of the Ezio games, or even AC1, which was to be fair, rather repetitive. It has a lot of firepower under it's hood, but it needs new spark plugs.

Connor is dull, no doubt, but some of the support characters are good. Haytham has some charisma and seems somewhat likeable even after the SWERVE, and Lee is a badass villain, simply coz of his look.

I didn't hate ACR, but I still think I prefer ACIII over it, even if Rev had Ezio it was just too short and rushed.

I think that's why I give AC:R credit. It had less development time than AC3 and to me, felt more polished. The stuff that I didn't like (TOWER DEFENSE) were not broken, just not good ideas IMO. Story kicked ass I believe. And the opening cinematic video that looked almost real was completely and totally awesome.



2nd half of that video was completely badass.

Re: ASS CREED III - October 30th, 2012....Bye Ezio :'(

Gosh I just Beat this game the ending was terrible.. Desmond story is too rushed Warren vidic death felt too rushed, At least a 3 conversation about Lucy being a templar and his goals come on!! the ending the Rushed.. Desmond randomly dies the end.... what the heck is that there is no sadness in it...The game started out like Desmond's Ancestors Atair, Ezio was the greatest assassin of all time only for him to just end up dead like that...I mean Desmond should have gone out like a bad ass not get thrown out like some useless character Unless Desmond isnt really dead and is in Assassin Creed 4. I would be able to accept this... But this makes Mass effect 3 ending looks like gold compared to this..




lol me a cat lover

I agree with some of your points, but IMO Revelations isn't anywhere near as good as 2 or BH. It felt rushed, it really did. But come to think of it, Revelations had at least some memorable missions, like the one where you played on the ukulele and the people in the background got assassinated by your recruits. And I never liked Altair, the first AC game was a chore and Altair was just as bland as Connor, but in Revelations, somehow, he got a personality and an Arabic accent. And the missions as Altair, I didn't enjoy them that much, especially the one when you had to walk for a long time as a 92 year old Altair, yeah, great fun. The problem I had in 3 was that the story was really boring, I didn't care for the American revolution (I know Ubisoft went with this theme just to kiss up to the USA), but then again, the setting of Revelations was just plain hideous. So in the end, Revelations had better characters, better story and better missions, while 3 had lot more side quests, better setting and was like twice as long, so it makes them basically equal, but knowing that 3 was in development for so many years, it has to be more disappointing, although I wasn't that disappointed with it, since I knew the idea of this whole American war theme and a half Native American character was a bad idea and I wasn't impressed by the gameplay videos released early, so I kinda knew it wasn't meant to be great.

Ok well if you were not a fan of Altair and his missions, I suppose that would help sink that game for you, and not enhance your views on it. Fair enough, I personally was a fan of it. Yeah walking slowly as a 92 year old sucked, but I was ok with it, circumstances given, for one mission.

For me it's Ezio >>>> Altair >> Connor. Altair was at least somewhat likeable and some enigma about him, Connor was an annoying unlikeable prick just like your main character in LA Noire.

I just beat the game. I thought that it was OK but the ending didn't do much for me.
