An online retailer has put up a listing for “Assassin's Creed Anthology,” revealing the first details for the unannounced Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 collection.
Definitely something I would be interested in. I missed all the AC games and I'm not interested in the fillers. Price seems way too high though.
I'm getting the Ezio Trilogy(retail price $39.99, possibly $29.99 on Black Friday) and AC3(retail price $59.99, possibly $39.99 on Black Friday). I'm not interested in buying AC1 since it's arguably the worst in the series. If you want to know what went on in AC1, Gamespot created 5 comprehensive vids of all significant events that occurred. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
AC:Revelations comes with AC1, that's another easy way of getting it.
Only the first editions did.
LOL I really don't understand how they justify that pricetag... all you get is AC1 and 2? Really? Brotherhood was amazing and so was Revelations, which comes with AC1. Go get AC2, Brotherhood and Revelations for 10-20 bucks each these days, then get AC3 when you're done with them, which will be in several months given how long they are, and AC3 will be cheap by then. Heck, you might even find a Black Friday or Boxing Day deal for it, at which point you'd be looking at around 60-80 bucks for the whole series! Horrible deal for this if you ask me.
For $192? Because you can buy all the AC's except for 3 pretty cheap
"In addition to Assassin's Creed 3, “Assassin's Creed Anthology” will also come with Assassin’s Creed and Assassin's Creed 2 according to the product description from the online retailer" I was going to say the same thing. This is ridiculous if true. AC3 costs 60 dollars so AC1 and 2 is worth around 130 bucks?
Typical non-sale prices for the AC games AC - $15 AC 2 - $20 AC 2 Brotherhood - $20 AC 2 Revelations - $30 AC 3 - $60 For a grand total of $135. And you can often find them on sale for less. So unless this comes with all kinds of really cool extras it's just not worth it.
So it's pretty much like the Mass Effect Trilogy then? Not worth the money and each game can be brought for a total price much less than the collection and still have the same content. It does seem that game companies are taking the money for nothing stuff a bit too far, and I guess it will continue as long as people keep paying for all the overpriced stuff.
AC: Brotherhood is in no way a filler. To understand the main storyline (Desmond in 2012), you definitely need to play Brotherhood. Before ACIII, it was the game that advanced the story the most. Revelations, you can miss though. Nothing hugely relevant happens in that game that you can't just get from a read of the synopsis.
Wow watching this I just notice two things... One... the graphics have come a long way, AC3 looks amazing compared to this.. Man they have improved graphics 10x what we thought was amazing- just wait until your on the boat in AC3... and the weather system OMG.. amazing (I'm loving the game so far) Two... the voice of Desmond is the same guy from Uncharted's Drake... LoL ...priceless (don't believe me, just listen carefully and start watching this video at 18:45) .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Terrible price though. They're cheaper individually
I agree, I always wanted to give this series another try but there were so many iterations already I just didn't want to buy them all.
Loving AC3. I have spent hours in the forest with Connor just running through trees and collecting things. Just hit 12 hours and I am finally getting my ship built for that guy and just started manor upgrades. Any other game and I would have beat it a couple hours ago. I still have TONS more to do.
lmao! no way in hell.. Theres a PS3 collection thats way cheaper & just buy part 1 used lol
Usually collections are meant to be a cheaper alternative to buying all of them separate. With this you have to pay far more to buy 3 games, 2 of them being quite old. I'm assuming it also comes with all the DLC for all games and more special goodies (figure or something).
Definitely getting this!
I already own all the AC games on consoles, but this would be good for someone looking to get into the games for the first time. Although, I think Brotherhood and Revelations are both great in their own right as well, except for the bomb crafting and tower defense parts of Revelations.
I've heard a lot of hate for Revelations, but from my experience of the game, the only thing that it really lacked was horses. I guess the city was a bit small too, and the plot was unnecessary, but it was still a fun game.
$150-$192 for the whole trilogy- are they kidding. You can get past AC games dirt cheap if you just look around for sales. Like Gamefly had them on sale for about $10 each for Revelations and Brotherhood. I got AC 1 for $5 on Amazon. And pick up AC 3 when it goes on sale black Friday for $30-35. In total you only pay $55-60 for all the games if you're smart.
$192? Meanwhile the Killzone trilogy is only 40 bucks...
"Meanwhile the Killzone trilogy is only 40 bucks..." Yeah but what about people with Calcium deficiencies? The Killzone Trilogy doesn't come with milk.
Hopefully this series will die out soon, too many games, same old thing. Next.
