Assassin's Creed is unfortunately turning out to be anything they originally set out to be :(

Really because I thought they set out to be an entertaining and profitable gaming franchise, and it seems as if they are doing a damn fine job of that. With as much as people complain about yearly releases or whatever else, every one I've played has been loads of fun and I cant wait to be an assassin/pirate. Keep em coming Ubi, cant wait!

When they order a hit on someone, assassins have no limits or Boundaries

Lol

good imo. the" original" ac was ridiculously repetitive. I still have that game upstairs somewhere uncompleted

jetlian1196d ago

its decent if you do the minimum amount to get the contracts. The hits told better stories than in later games and the setup for the series was good.

I do think the story has lost its way

Well, even as an assassin, you still gotta eat. Harpoon away!

Awesome, I am glad to see they are going to make a fun game and not one that is overly sensitive to stupid issues. AC3 could have been so much fun if you had the option to run around scalping people. Instead, they made AC3 into a game that was way to culturally sensitive and the game suffered greatly for it.

Even though its a work of fiction they try to stay as close to history as possible, and given that, the native americans of that area didn't scalp people. Putting that in there would have just come off as racist dude. They cant offend an entire culture just because you think it would be fun.

You know what, maybe you are right but it would have been fun. Also, since none of us where alive back than we can't say that with any certainty. It's not like all of a sudden one day Native Americans just decided that today they are going to start scalping people. I get what you are saying and obviously that's why they didn't do it.

Fun should never be sacrificed for sensitivity. Harpooning whales is really damn offensive to a lot of people, yet they error on the side of fun this time. That's why this AC game looks to be actually fun. Also, make no mistake that harpooning whales is offensive to millions of people.

Actually there is plenty documentation that says only certain tribes of native americans scalped people. If you don't believe me than read up on you history.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
The tribes in that area of the country did not. If I remember correctly they were going to include scalping into the game and some native American groups got all up in arms specifically for the fact that the tribes mentioned in the game did not participate in scalpings.

Although I do agree, it would have been a fun addition, racist or not.

i Wonder if you have to hunt to eat and survive? I find most if not all games ignore the fact that ppl have to eat , crap, and pee to survive.

violents1196d ago

they tried that in GTA and it was annoying, well the eating anyway. And really do you want to have to make bathroom breaks in your video games? I frankly don't want to leave the battlefield to take a dump in my games.

ExposingLames1196d ago

thats because they're "games"

seanpitt231196d ago

I hope they change the targeting system because it sucks bad.
Trying to bow and arrow an enemy in ac3 was horrible.
