With Assassin’s Creed IV announced, we take a look back at the Assassin’s Creed franchise and try and pinpoint just what it is that gamers love so much.
sigh.. Isn't this a question you can ask about any game?
Yeah and this writer chose Assassin's Creed. People will effing complain about anything.
I honestly have felt the same way after playing each title...high anticipation and then when I actually beat it I feel brutal disappointment and want my money back
But here you are again, right?
I like Assassin's Creed for the story and gameplay. The time periods they touch base on are cool, too. You don't see many people in entertainment base their product on the Crusades, the Renaissance, or the American Revolution. And now they are going to do pirates. It will be interesting to see how it goes.
Because it used to be good. Assassin's Creed II was definitely a highnote for the series. It hasn't really improved since. They've fixed and redesigned mechanics but it's sacrificed some of the things I used to really love about the series. For example the combat in AC1, and AC2 was actually a bit challenging, especially the former. AC3 lets me rip through a crowd of 15+ redcoats with little resistance. There's nothing difficult about fighting, and I can seriously do it with 2 buttons. What happened to the days where the improper move led to punishment? Even the stealth seems diluted, though it was never really that stellar.
The story point blank.
I tried AC2 and thought it was lame. Didn't care for any other game in the series, then I played AC3. What a great game! Made me wanna try the rest, just to see.
Not really.. crappy games if you ask me.
