“Assassin’s Creed 3 is a franchise, like Mario or Resident Evil,” says Ubisoft

Assassin’s Creed 3 creative director Alex Hutchinson has defended Ubisoft’s decision to release the IP annually, stating it’s all part of the triple-A process. (Alex Hutchinson, Industry, PC, PS3, Ubisoft, Xbox 360)

I worry about games that become annual like this. I feel they'll get boring faster and tend to have a "Meh" approach to them. I couldn't finish Ezio's 3rd and final outing as a result.

Agreed it took me forever to to.ish revelations because im just tired of ass creed

But it's clear the AC franchise innovates and improves in everyway... In every new game released. Don't thing anyone can complain... Maybe about cod... Well from mw2 to mw3 anyway. But it's clear to me that they are bringing something new and innovative to blops 2 from blops

But don't you still get tired of the same franchise over and over and over again? Especially yearly.
I'm done with AC after 3.

The leap from Brotherhood to Revelations was kinda small. 3 looks like it will change a good amount but Revelations just felt tacked on.

Assasins creed games are usually around the 20-25hr mark out of which 15 hrs is just climbing lmao
kanetheking  +   1074d ago
and most of the time your in gt5 your racing, most of the time your in rpg's you grinding or getting better items, so what is your point?
pandehz  +   1074d ago
Umm in a racing game if your not in your car then theres something wrong.

Assassins Creed should be called Rock Climbing Adventures.

I mean it worked in AC1 but then every sequel the buildings got taller and taller and the climbing just became such a borefest.
kanetheking  +   1074d ago
there are some big buildings yes? but you can easily get up most buildings in three of four moves, but it's set in the 1400 he's not going to fly or have a body suit that gives him superpowers.

really? These guys are way over their heads. Sure, AC3 looks pretty sweet and all that, but I really didn't care for the previous titles.

It's a big franchise, I give them that, but they have done nothing that's innovative like super mario or resident evil.

i'm a fan. Admittedly my biggest gripe is the combat system but hopefully its changing. They could add more stealth too but overall i enjoy going to these different times and places and i think the story is pretty good overall. Has good music too. Its not a hard game and would be cool if they added difficulty levels.

AC2 was milked out quite alot but AC3 seems to be a really good game.
DudeJets  +   1074d ago
The problem with AC is that it's far to easy its an utter joke in that regard
Hellsvacancy  +   1074d ago
Finally, a proper answer

The AC games are too easy, there really isnt any skill to them at all

Im not hating on the series, i bought 3 of the games on day 1, but i wont be buying AC3 (i shall rent it), it took me ages to finish Revelations, its all too samey

Annually for a game is too close. 2 years is fine.

Though these are good and exciting games to play but these get bored very soon and then people look for new stuff to play.

Has Mario changed all that much???

Ive always liked and hated assassins creed
Grimhammer00  +   1074d ago
My issue with assassins creed is lack of stealth & adventure.

The main story is fun, but has really stretched its welcome. And the side stuff is super meaningless. Feels like padding.

The last one I think had this cool vlad the impaler tomb. That was fun. More side story with actual story would be nice. Sadly, this asscreed 3 time period to me is not very interesting.

Liberation is going to top ACIII. I'm very interested in getting to know Aveline.

We don't get new Resident Evil titles every year. Same with classic platforming Mario titles. Enough with annual AC games.
Xperia_ion  +   1074d ago
The comparision should have been AC is like COD, they both release games every year, but milked is milked, Mario and Resident Evil get milked too, changes in gameplay doesn't change the name on the box and the whole theme : /

I have to say Ubi is the only one trying to push the series forward. Sure the gameplay is always similar as it should be but they keep it fresh.
sriki007  +   1074d ago
as long as its fresh Like changing the cities often, a good story, new chartaters etc... I dont mind..
