Confirmation that the PS4 version of Assassin's Creed Syndicate is playing nicely without hitch.
Looks so boring.. The fighting in this game is crap.
It has the best fighting of any AC to date from what I saw. Grapple hook looks fun to use as well.
Press "A" for awesome. Just like Batman, Mordor... meh
The Grapple hook looks way too overpowered and since when can anyone climb up an inclined the way they can in AC. The game breaks the immersive feel
Agree with bjmartynhak and logicwins. I prefer the fighting in Unity. More patient timing and the slower pace made it more realistic. This looks like a button mashing romp.
Looks ugly too, thy downgraded the game since unity there are beary any ncps to be seen and the game lookes a higher res last gen game this should run at 60 fps tbh
Eagle vision now seems more like batvision. The assassins games have lost their original atmosphere and feel, it seems like all the elements that made this franchise good have been either reduced or replaced like the hidden blade no no longer has the impact it once had, the assassins once felt like a secret mysterious organisation and noe this, these guys are not even assassins. The story stopped making sense when Desmond was killed off spoiler bla bla
I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the series was going downhill after the cheap cop out of an ending for 3 :/ obviously didn't wanna pay the scriptwriters :/
Serious silky smooth. Then when it gets here. Guess what? Day one patch.
Ubishit baby! After past experiences and having an IQ higher than my shoe size tell me to not buy their games anymore. I will stick to this.
Silky smooth... Just looking at the bank job video I saw a couple drops here and there, though I'm one to look past that. It isn't exactly silky smooth. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to how this game does during launch.
The combat looks sooo boooring... Hmm, well to those who buy it I hope it's worth it. Too many other games coming that have peaked my interest.
Smart people like me know how to rent it 5 day rental is more than enough time to beat an AC game
Videogamer beg to differ.... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Lol Ubisoft please. Take this trash and shove it up your a*s no one cares anymore
Oh really? You don't speak for me, nor for the millions of other people that enjoy this series. I don't know why some of you feel the need to go bitch about games you don't like.
This series is a cancer to gaming, it's the same copy and paste BS from past entries every year, a grappling hook is supposed to be innovative apparently, because we haven't seen that being used in other series. Did you play Unity last year? Poor gameplay, poor technical performance and poor writing, and yet Ubisoft still had the f**king audacity to put microtransactions in a broken and fully priced $60 game. I know MGSV has also done this recently but at least it had the decency to turn up as a mostly complete and functional f**king product on release day, given it's four or so year long development cycle; having a new AC game pumped out every year also increases the chances of another case like Unity, but it's not like Ubisoft cares because $$$. I expect no different from this entry, although I'd love Ubisoft to prove me wrong since I loved ACII back in 2009, and ACIV in 2013 was a pleasant surprise, so the jury is still out to be fair I suppose. But whatever, it's your opinion, who am I to judge you.
Ubisoft released a video some time ago with a bunch of developers on camera explaining how sorry they were for how much of a mess Unity was and how it wasn't actually ready for launch. If they were truly sorry, they would take a step back to look at the drawing board, give this franchise at least a short rest by spending a few years taking their time crafting a great, high quality Assassin's Creed game. It's certainly possible given the talent at Ubisoft. But alas, here we are, another year, another AC game. It's almost insulting.
It's amazing how a game you are clearly not going to get gets you this angry. You might want to see someone about that.
@mrzeeman321 I have criticisms of my own. The problem I have is people coming in and doing nothing but sh*tting on a game. It's getting old. I mean, every article about Assassin's Creed I can expect to see a handful of people bashing the game. It's just so cliche at this point. It's clearly the cool thing to do these days to hate on the Assassin's Creed games on game forums, yet the games still sell millions. You say the games are "trash" and a "cancer" to gaming, but millions of people obviously disagree. You haven't shown how these games hurt anybody. As I see it, those that enjoy them can continue to enjoy them and those that don't can simply go play something else. I just don't get why some people go so out of their way to spew hate about games they don't like. For example, I don't like sports games at all. I find them completely boring. All the FIFA, Madden and MLB games of the world don't appeal to me in the slightest. To me they are boring, shallow and seem rehashed from year to year, yet millions of people like those games so much that they choose to spend their hard-earned money on them. I don't go into articles about those games and start ranting about how boring and sh*tty they are. I personally do think that Ubisoft should give the AC series a break. At least that would be MY preference. I would like to see a two or three year break and then have them come back with a fresh take on the series. But there are millions of people who buy these games each year and, as far as Ubisoft is concerned, this shows a continuing strong interest in the series. I have lots of ideas about how they can improve the series, but there is a big difference between offering constructive criticism and coming into an article just to hate on the franchise.
@AtariFanboy Lol...how about actually discussing the subject matter at hand instead of making snarky passive-aggressive personal comments about me? Instead of actually coming up with worthwhile discussion on why you think the AC franchise is so amazing and why you disagree with my opinion, you decide to make a personal comment about me. If anyone's getting angry, it sounds like you're the one getting angry over the comments I've made, thus leading the rebuttal you made instead of actually trying to make a valid argument/point. It's just a video game...not really a big deal. Calm down man. ;) @starchild I see where you're coming from, but the thing is, there's a comment section for a reason. I posted what I said because I wanted to express my opinion, nothing more nothing less,I wasn't fishing for Agrees or Disagrees. You don't have to agree with my opinion, and you know what my friend? That's perfectly fine! In retrospect, I regret saying "no one cares anymore", I admit that was a foolish thing to say because that's simply just not true and I apologise for being so retarded with my choice of words, I was speaking generally. However, I still stand by my opinion.
Isn't the subject at hand if the game is silky smooth or not? How exactly are you following your own advice? But I'll oblige. The games are mostly fun, decent story, and for the most part grow on the game play with each iteration. Yes, it's more of the same, but it's the same formula people have come to expect, and that's pretty much what people want from sequels. Not making drastic changes in each installment is not a cancer. If it is a problem, then it sounds like you have a problem with the gamers, and not Ubisoft. Releasing seriously broken products is bad, and I will never defend it, and would even side with you if that was the crux of your argument, but it's not. However I will state that Ubisoft is far from alone in the release of broken games. But, outside of Unity, how many seriously broken games have been released in the series? They've all had day one hiccups...just like most other big games. If you were speaking of Ubisoft in general, I might be more sympathetic to your argument, but if you look at the numbers, the vast majority of their games do not release broken...just the big ones where they push the release date too hard.
@rainslacker "The games are mostly fun, decent story, and for the most part grow on the game play with each iteration" While that's a subjective point, I don't necessarily disagree. After all, I did say that ACIV in 2013 was a pleasant surprise, the stories of AC Brotherhood, Revelations and III let me down personally although they had good gameplay aside from each iteration having several missions following a target or looking for a target in a crowd using Eagle Vision; which is why ACIV came as a surprise to me. I guess the pirate theme gave it a fresh feel which I actually commend Ubisoft for! When it comes to what I expect from a sequel, you make a great point on when it comes to building on a familiar formula, but personally for me none of the games after ACII have been able to replicate the jump from ACI to ACII, generally speaking. Again, subjective. You're absolutely right, I agree, Ubisoft aren't the only ones guilty of releasing broken day one games. But that's another topic for another time.
1) Let's be honest, Assassin's Creed hasn't really evolved that much since its first iteration. 2) It's Assassin's Creed. What is the game engine simulating all at once that is really that demanding? Hay cart physics and some crowd "A.I."? Other than that, it's just a bunch of damn polygons that you can climb all over and some HDR lighting to make it look pretty.
@Incipio - AC Black Flag is a great game. The developers really nailed the pirate/naval combat and stealth aspects of the game. The gun play was decent too. I'd call that an evolution. Too bad the developers didn't use some of the better aspects of the gun and stealth play of Black Flag in Unity. I agree that Unity may have been a devolution for the franchise.
I liked the first AC because it was something I've never played before. The second AC put me off because the control scheme was so confusing. In fact it puts me off so much that I ignored pretty much every other AC sequels that follow because they don't differ very much except for the settings. Then the hype surrounding the naval combat in AC: Black Flag made me buy it when it was cheap. The first taste of the naval combat was amazing. Then...I returned to the clunky parkour and even clunkier ground combat. I tried to power through the ground missions so I can back to the ship combat but it was just too much. Shadow of Mordor's smoother combat system have ruined Black Flag for me.
I've only played AC Black Flag and AC Unity. The main reason I purchased Unity was because I played Black Flag on PS4 and thought it was freaking awesome. Loved the pirate/naval game play. I played Unity a few months after it's release and actually finished the game. Unity was ok but not in the same league as Black Flag. So, I've played 2 games in the franchise, one, imo, was a fantastic 9.5/10 while the other was, imo, a little above average 7.0/10. Not sure how one controversial release like AC Unity can make so many people openly hate the franchise. After all, AC Syndicate might be great like AC Black Flag.
You've probably heard but people also hated AC3. Never figured out why but i sure loved it. It wasn't too big of a deal but then Unity came out and people heard how broken it was on pc thats when it became real cool to talk shit about the franchise, the game wasnt great, it was pretty boring, but it wasn't enough to curse an entire franchise.
I'm keeping my judgment down to when I play and or see reviews... all this positivity can't be in vein when we are all conscious of the negativity from past and current games and their state of being launched broken
Looks like more Assassin's Creed, which can be good or bad, but for me feels tired, grapple hook or no. Also, she straight up killed that guy in front of two kids. No reaction. Oh, video games!
You just no they picked london as the setting so their shitty game can look ok ie fog, grey, bland....perfect to hide AC's glaring graphical flaws. Looks God damned bland and boring. AVOID.
Yea... Silky Smooth Cinematic 24fps...................
That is ridicolous) Game works at 30fps, with drops (just watch the videos) and besides this looks like sh*t. Unity graphics much better)
