IGN changes back its Assassin's Creed review, gives explanation

Destructoid writes:

"Well, this story just gets more and more confusing. The review has been rolled back to now include the text that was there in the final publication last night. IGN contacted Destructoid directly to say that the issue was a copy/paste error that had gone overlooked. For whatever reason, the finished publication had been gone into and swapped paragraphs or somesuch, at least by IGN's reckoning. Confusion abounds afresh.

Crossed wires? Innocent screw ups? Who knows? What I do know, however, is that the people who kept accusing me of making quotes up can keep their traps shut now -- I told you it was bloody there."

Wow, the story is getting more and more dramatic. IGN reviews AC, IGN edits/modifies AC review, IGN re-edits and changes AC review back to original.

Nice find and interesting story.

Why is this guy reviewing someone elses review.
I think he's just trying to stir things up to get more hits on his site.
All the issues he is trying to outline with the framerate issues he says someone else said it. but when you go to the site itself, it says its not that bad...and other sites say nothing at all.
It all sounds like BS to me.

Rumors, hacking, altered reviews...

Pretty good week, in my opinion. :)

MK_Red3448d ago

Good and interesting :)

Halo and Mass Effect are going to end up on PS3 and nobody even knows it. ;)

Irving3448d ago

Now you know who was lying, right?

snittolo3448d ago

Great week so far with all the drama, one of the more interesting ones for sure.

"Through it all though ... I still don't know if I should buy Assassin's Creed."

The game is a great game, the controls are hard to get use to at first, but this game is a great introduction to a new story. The graphics are excellent, I got it for the 360 by the way, I see no frame rate problems=, or maybe it's to small for me to even notice. I spent four hours on it, and I've been playing man hunt with all the enemies lol

if anybody here is a subscriber to IGN, check their head to head comparison http://insider.ign.com/arti...

Overall
In my opinion, smaller features like controller vibration and Achievement Points are not enough to give a game first place over other versions of the same title. However, in this case the frame rate issues on PS3 are enough to put the 360 version ahead. If you play each version in quick succession like I have, the disparity is obvious and does affect how enjoyable the experience is. As I stated earlier in the article, we already know the PS3 is capable of matching (and probably topping) 360's performance. We're just waiting to see it happen in more cross platform releases.
Overall
1. 360
2. PS3

----------------------------- -------------------
I thinks its just another case of dev not finishing the job fully on the PS3 version. But like the guys says, its only when you run them one after the other that you really notice.

In fact when I look at the screen shoots, I prefer the PS3 version because it has smoother edges and looks more natural. but these are just stills and only my opinion.

kunark3448d ago

im really confused gs says ps3 has better frame rates and ign says 360 does so witch one is right im puzzeld

socomnick3448d ago

I kinda believe ign on the framerate . I think gamestop is trying to praise the ps3 version a little so it doesn't get so much flak from sony fans.

duarteq3448d ago

Are really today's reviewers partial ? Does this kind of sensacionalism news interest to gamers ? don't think so, but somehow i think someone is gaining money with this. More Play and less Sh!t.

DaCandyman3448d ago

notice I did say monitor. If you are playing on a monitor you will not have full range of color contrast adjustments. You can get great quality out of a monitor with your 360. As for the PS3 it is not as great. I hooked my PS3 to a Sony Bravia and my display looked nothing like IGN PS3 comparison video.

ShiftyLookingCow3448d ago (Edited 3448d ago )

@DaCandyman, since I am in a dorm I use a cheap display. From experience, both PS3 and 360 suffered from washed out colors on cheap computer displays. 360 was fixed in the summer when Reference Level option was made available and with the PS3, if you go to Display Settings and change "RGB Color Range" to Full, PS3 colors becomes normal instead of being washed out.

Pro-G wrote "While it looks utterly amazing, the frame rate drops to sluggish levels in both versions of the game - usually while free-running on roof tops - and the PS3 game suffers from a slightly less than great frame rate during most of the game."

giovonni3448d ago

I seen no problems with frame rate for the 360, and it maybe the same with the ps3. I believe they both play very close to each other
