Here is IGN's video review for Assassin's Creed.
wts d score?
I didn't check the score but the reviewer REALLY hated the game and said it's maybe worth a rent and you may not even want to finish it for the first time. Also calls it one of the top 5 most disappointing games of all time or somthing.
What the heck is wrong with IGN? The reviewer really sounds hateful. Other ones at least were disappointed...
IGN gave AC a 7.7
i love how everyone was hating on 1up today. I already got the game and am playing it and it dosent seem that bad but looks to be getting dull reviews so far. So many inexperienced ppl rating video games now its hard to know which reviews to trust. I will be very dissapointed in game informer if they give the game a 9.25.
I think they gave it a 9.5
edit: whats with the disagree? here is the proof http://gameinformer.com/Gam...
Crap cant watch the video due to my office blocking video. Damn them!
just picked it up from Gamestop so i'll find out for myself.
they also told me i can get Uncharted Friday the 16th.
Yeah they changed the date back to Friday again for Uncharted on gamestop.com. I'm still waiting for the video to finish downloading at the office, it's going kinda slow since it's in HD.
Edit: dammit, i dont have sound at work and i was almost sure they would flash a rating at the end of the video. What a waste..
downloading the HD video myself, its slow, about 40 mins left.
I know there are lots of games that got reviews in the 7-8s and I still dug em. Rent the game and see for yourself b4 bashing a game because it got "good" not "great" reviews
AC no longer looks set to be the AAA to follow up on COD4 however still looks solid enough for at least a rental to see if its worth buying.
they try to teach to kill arabs and arabs are the bad guys!! sure!! who conquered who??
the review says its probably one of the top 5 most disappointing game due to its wasted potential
whats the score, I cant watch it cause it locks up my computer right now
there's no score, but the reviewer didn't like it, its what i said at the top
i've listened to three quarters of it so far. Still loading in spurts. In any case, the reviewer is very disappointed for most of it. Mainly saying the same thing we've been hearing from most sites today: repetitive or boring gameplay. Can't see this review score amounting to more than a 7 or so either.
Will check it out for myself, but when so many reviewers say the same thing about the game, it starts to seem like less of an issue of taste and more of a consensus within the community.
One other note...I'm sure the reviewer is a nice guy and all, but his depressing monotone narration was unbearable. I need to go do drugs or pet a kitten or something after that performance. Ughhh
lol, i thought you were just kidding darkwing but wow...i think i might just cancel the preorder and save me some money. Mario Galaxy, Uncharted and Mass Effect should do it for me for the year. Were all the other reviews only hype? Damn I hate reviews...I'm just gonna be mad if i feel the same way that IGN does when I play it.
The damn review made me to not buy this game.
Well uncharted left then but i'm buying that(uncharted) even if it got bad reviews!
I don't know, what could ruin Uncharted's review, though. We had a demo, so everybody is free to judge. Everything there, except the puzzles.
Maybe they should bring an Assassins demo as well, so we could also do our own evaluation.
ok that`s it no buy for me anytime soon
9.1 of 9.5 from GameTrailers and GameInformer to 6.7 from an some site, 7 from 1UP, 8 from Pro-G. Talk about mixed reactions.
Do you feel mine?/Sarcasm/serious...
I trust Game Informer over anyoneelses reviews, but I can't ignore the fact that IGN is pretty damn good........I've already preordered it. And I'm easy to please, so I'll think it'll be great!
The reviewers I trust the most are IGN and GameInformer, one of them hated this game (IGN) and the other loved it (GI)... What is going on here? I'd honestly never seen a game getting only 2 types of scores. decent scores (6.7 to 7) and then great ones (9.1 to 9.5). It's one of those love it or hate it ones...
the reviewer also says the biggest issue is the story, aside from the repetitive/boring gameplay the other reviewers are saying
For me, where Assasins Creed falls down is the gameplay. Sure it looks good but just looking at most of the videos, I personally have a feeling that after 1 or 2 hours of playing I will get bored. The lack of side quest that differ from killing people and the overall blandness of the combat means its a rental at most.
they were reviewing the 360 version.
they gave it a 7.7
and gave the ps3 version a 7.5,because of poor frame rates and textures.
"The cities, as I stated earlier, are truly remarkable pieces of art. These big open worlds, which are fully interactive, do come at a severe cost on PS3. There is considerable texture pop-in and noticeable framerate issues. Playing back-to-back with the 360 version, it's obvious that Ubisoft did not devote enough resources to the PS3 edition. The framerate is considerably worse, so much so that it begins to affect gameplay in the later levels. You can get through the first two-thirds of Assassin with the framerate being just an annoyance, but it becomes more of an issue for the final third of the missions".
ether 360 knows how to do ps3 games better than ps3 or it was made on 360 hardware to beguine with.
damn..Assassins Creed a let down who would have thought...but I thought other reviewers said the story was good..ohh well...I already pre-ordered it so might as well play it to see for myself
Any story that involves
* SPOILERS *
going back in time while being held hostage by terrorists is crap
Ok they don't gave 10/10 but did you count how many time the guy say the word "Cool", this is cool. I don't care they work hard on the game and it look great, compare to most actual videogame right now that show hugly polygons, this is incredible graphic.
This is about what I expected from this game. Neither great nor terrible. Reminds me a lot of Crackdown, which was fun, but not a very deep game. Probably worth a rent at least, but for me probably not for a while - too many great games coming out.
lmao. everyone who disagreed with me all these recent months when I said ASS Creed would flop just got f*cking owned. I'm never wrong when it comes to these things. SUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK ITTTTTTTTTTT N000BS! I think I'll go play exclusive GotY Bioshock and Mass Effect. owned!!!!!!!1 HAHAHAHAH
