Ubisoft has today announced targets for its next financial year (April 1, 2009 - March 31, 2010), confirming the release of Assassin's Creed 2, Splinter Cell Conviction and a new Ghost Recon game.
Count me out, the first one was boring and repetitive as hell.
The first one was extremely fun, the only downfall was the repetiveness but Ubisoft wont make that mistake this time around so look forward to a good game!
The first one was awesome and i love it. Problem with AC was that they softend the gameplay to please all the whiners from E³. Because of this noone used the intel given to you from the miniquests for example (90% of the poeple i asked didnt even knew that tere are maps with routes of the patrols etc.) They made the game so easy you could literally rush in kill the target and hide. But that wasnt what ubi wanted in te first place. I hope this time they stick to the planned design Disable the hud and all onscreen helpers and AC is a BLAST
YEESSSS assassin's creed 2 , now ubi plz make it less repetitive / boring / a good story this time / and a fuKin good ending, also take care of the ps3 version this time , there were some glitches here and there, and .... , u no what , dont release it
other than repetitive missions and shallow combat system , and a crappy and confusing ending...but I really enjoyed Assassins Creed....and im more than looking for to AC2..and to see where they take the story from that cliff-hanger
Oh btw the Story is great, fresh, and one of its own. I do understand though that most people dislike it, it's a tradition in Literature, Films and games that different approaches are often rejected in the first place. I love AC
We all know the only major flaw with the first was repetitivity. The rest of it is a very outstanding game, especially the story. I can't wait to see where this games universe goes. It'll be a dang shame though if they don't learn from the first. It'll make it way too hard to play through it to enjoy the story and that's where to me this game really shines. The first is def. a rental, but I don't recommend anyone buying it. Too short to justify the price tag.
checkin out the first trailers that were released for this game everybody was like , wow , this game is a must buy , crusaders times and stuff , thts why i bought it , then when the first cutscene was up i was like wwhhhaaaaattt ttthhheee fuuuckkk ?? seriously , the story feels kinda loose , but the ending was kinda emerging , not good , but emerging, i hope they fix all this stuff in 2
Finally! Not like we didn't expect it but I really enjoyed AC and look forward to another adventure. Bring on the French Revolution or any revolution for that matter.
FV<K YES!! I'm playing the first one right now.
Personally I would like to see them make a new IP. I am tired of playing games that are sequels unless they bring something totally new to the games you can count me out also. We will see.
The 1st one was a "Flawed Masterpiece"... If they can give non repetitive gameplay,add more depth to the stealth,more moves,weapons,tweak all the important gameplay aspects they could very well have a masterpiece. I also believe the rumor of swimming being added.Plus if they could actually get some kind of Co-OP,that would be off the charts great... Arthur and the Invisibles has the potential to be a great platformer,the movie and soon to be sequel has loads of style and great design.If they can bring in all the great aspects of platforming and gameplay of the other great platformers of the past it could be great for platform lovers. Bad news...No sign of Beyond good and Evil 2? I know it has been around for 1.5 years now,as a couple old work partners of mine did Pre-viz for it...I hope it rears it's "beautiful" head soon...
New assassins creed! count me in. Liked the first one quite a bit but it could have used more interesting missions. The assassinations where good but the game lacked "depth" and was too repeating. And no, I dont want to collect any more flags so hopefully they have ditched that as well :|
Are you kidding? I think you'll find alotm of disagrees there
What kept me interested in AC1 was the interesting story line. The gameplay was repetitive and dull, you had a massive open cities and world which looks amazing and full of life... But you couldnt do anything outside of the repetitive objectives. But the story kept me playing. Im hoping that in AC2 they have learned from AC1 so fingers crossed there are alot of improvements.
The real question is will the Splinter Cell game be multiplatform or 360 exclusive? I think Ubisoft heard the complaints of the first Assassin's Creed and make it less repetitive.
http://www.videogamer.com/n... Yes, it's still 360 exclusive :). I'm really excited for the new Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, and AC. I hope at least 2 of the 3 make it out before holiday 09.
SC is only a timed exclusive. I will did up the link but they are devoloping a PS3 version already.
Sorry buddy.. but there is no word of any timed exclusivity or any form of development for the PS3 version. The only way you would be able to know this is if you worked with Ubisoft. "Speaking during a conference call following the company's third-quarter financial report, Ubisoft has re-confirmed that Splinter Cell Conviction will be an Xbox 360 exclusive." -straight from their mouth.
sweet .... ? Don't see AC2 selling as much as the first though :) Good luck Ubi
why even till this day the game still does 15-30k weekly on both PS3/360
Quite honestly, I don't think Ubi can generate the hype it created on the first game. If it sells on par with the first, that is a true accomplishment. The internet buzz regarding the first title was VERY strong.
Do not underestimate the selling power of this game.. It will sell
I am jack's complete lack of surprise.
Let us hope Ubisoft realize the potential of AC and tap into it. The core gameplay is amazing, but the missions/hiding places/maps were too much of the same thing. AC2 better let us SKIP THE CUTSCENES.
we dont need this crappy game. Thanx but no thanx
Speak for yourself.I loved the first one and most definitely will love the second one.
yay assassins creed 2 =D
woot cant wait the first one was awesome..even if a little repetive it was still fun
cant bloody wait tbh and this i think will be a blast
If its anything like the last one. Its going to be a huge disappointment. The first assassins creed was probably the biggest let down this gen. It bored the hell out of me. So repetitive. Every mission was the same damn thing! The side missions were completely useless. You save a random person from guards that keep pushing them around. They didn't even bother changing the person that needed to helped. Every time you saved the citizen from the guards it was the same person! If they made the game more like GTA. Were you can chose your own missions. This game would rock. You couldn't even interact with anything the game. It was a beautiful game. But very horrible gameplay. Maybe this time Ubi wont fuk up this time.
Mix it up a little more. I enjoyed the original, but it was very repetitive, not to mention GLITCHY. Fix those things and I'll buy it.
That was rather a low key release statement about AC2 considering the build up. First, Ubisoft said they won't release it until people start getting excited about it (seemed to backfire). Then they were coy about it coming out at all and when it might. Now it is just mentioned in a release statement with a host of other games.
AC is without a doubt my most disappointed game this gen, I just can not believe how they fucckked up such an amazing premise.
I loved the first one despite the repetition, and the story, complete with a crazy cliffhanger, really makes me want to continue the series.
It will be a good fiscal year for Ubisoft
really excited about another ghost recon game. this is the best NEWS i have seen on this site in a long time. whether you're ps fan or xbox fan, to me this is good stuff. things like this is what this site needs more of, not rrod articles, doom for ps3 articles, or should i say blogs about either one of those. i hope the next ghost recon doesn't feel like a run and gun shooter like the previous 2. ghost recon 2 summit strike was the best for consoles, and i wish that they would go back to that gameplay. (but they probably won't) anyways peace
the first one is a love hate game for me. the free runnignand climbign is soooo much fun and the best in any game ever. but the missiosn are sooo bad and repetitive. i still havnet beaten the game and i have had it since it released its just so repetive it ruins the fun parts of the game. I'll prolly get the second one, depending on what other games come out around its release date.
this could be an awesome game, if they learn from their mistakes with assassins creed 1
Yes I love AC.Hope its good like the first one
Alright Ubisoft! I gotta say, its about freakin time you said something for AC2 and SP:C! Just dont ever do that again, mmm' k? *Hugs Ubisoft*
im looking forward to that new ghost recon game. One thing i absolutely hated about graw 2 was that there was no cover system online. I hope this one new one does
Just exploring the cities was awesome. Absolutely loved the game. Can't wait for AC 2!
Assassins creed the orignal was amazing until my we by accidently put my profile on his xbox and lost everything my saves which i was so close to the end of the game but sure i will buy ac 2 its looks beepin awesome
