Some give it around a 7 and some give it a low to mid 9, so who's telling the truth and actually played through the entire game? To bring some balance to the equation, Gamebrink offers up the Sushi-O-Meter Average.
yeah, reviewers in the last few weeks seem to be sending very very very mixed signals about various games. its sending waves of confusion among gamers.
i for one don't rely on reviews to judge which game to buy, but i look at them to get an idea of what a game is like, because generally, most reviews are on the same tier. but guess not.. haha..
it seems like the one sure thing these days is that a high profile 360 exclusive gets a 9+ every time and a high profile ps3 exclusive is rated on a scale from 0-8.5
they all score in the 8 range.
It seems like people are blinded by they're own hype, and are unable to look at something unbaised and un-objectivly. Maybe, just maybe the glass is half empty and they're actually being charatable with their reviews.
its just the lil brother mentality, he plays basketball and Dad lets him win so in his mind he thinks he's MJ, but at school and in the neighborhood he's always getting his ass whipped, he can't understand/accept that maybe in time his skills will get better but for now he's just not on the level with the other kids on the block, whenever he loses theres always a excuse; "He cheated", "I was tired", "the ball is wet", "something was in my eye"= just like sonykids with their conspiracy theories, truth is everybody is NOT biased, just some reviewers dont think sony exclusive are that great= the simple answer is usually the TRUTH. cry some more sonykids=
deal with it xbox games are better games halo 3 amazing game/bioshock amaing game/forza2 amazing game/mass effect amazig game whne u make a amazing game that has great graphics /great gameplay for its genre/and gret story line,it seems ps3 can only handdle 1 thing at a time in thier games great graphics while gameplay and imgination and bringing something new is missin in th eps3 games catolog no way u can compare games like bioshock/,mass efrect halo 3 to games like rachet and clank and unchaerted if u do u very new to games im 24 been playing games for 10years belive u me i know .
I've got my PS3 copy right here. I sure hope its good because I'm aching to give my PS3 a workout.
People will either love this game or hate it. I for one don't know. But I will, when I play it
How insightful. Isn't that the way most things are in life ? You like or you don't. Your words of wisdom have inspired me beyond words. Thank you.
LMAO at both comments
i know why reviewer are not sure if assasin creed is creed good. because reviewes are Opinions!! Some of them think is good while other thinks is bad. the best advice a can give you is not to listen to them.
agree. that why i don't listen to what reviewers have to say about a game.
Well, I played it and my honest opinion thus far is this, its neat clean looking however I feel lack of polish because the AI seems like a waste of time. I also bought Drakes Fourtune and that is a much better game IMO
Notice any framerate issues with AC like some of the reviews have been saying? Just wondering.
i found AC very boring after a couple of hours.
Yeah, thats not good to here. That suck, so many people were looking forward to the game. I have not had a chance to buy it, because I just got back from Spain.
As far as Assassin's creed goes, 'idontcare' is like the anti-'MK_Red'. MK_Red does anything to defend AC while 'idontcare' keeps on saying he doesn't like it.
But I have to give you credit 'idontcare', at least you have the game and have played it. Unlike some other people (I won't mention names but you can figure it out).
i would have bought it but i can't buy all the games i want. i will rent this for sure though. the other games i'm buying is NOT based on stupid reviewers but based on me playing the demo or referred from close friends or people who hold credence.
They are not needed. Quite worthless indiduals who do nothing all day but play games. Provide nothing to society as a whole. They dont make games themselves so who the hell are they to talk...
IMO ALL GAME REVIEWERS JUST SHUT THE &&&& UP.
Your opinion has become worthless. You are just HURTING the industry at this point. Good job, hope you are proud!
Hmm....to lump all reviewers into a stereotype is pretty rash......
I think gametrailers does an excellent job reviewing games, since they show most aspects of the game such as sound, gameplay, presentation, and story. I don't think I have seen one review by them that showed bias to a particular system or game. The video review of AC from IGN was very harsh, but they at least said their opinion and back it up with some reference point.
The problem with the industry is the bar is usually set to high, and when the game fails to deliver the community feels betrayed.
You could always just ignore them and just come up with your own opinion. The game sites are going to continue reviewing games as long as people are willing to visit their site.
MMM HOW STRANGE when the ps3 came out and fanboys emerged REVIEWS ARE NOW RUINING THE game industry even tho for years upon years these reviews have been around and there been no out cry ?maybe think in ur brain wait before th eps3 came out we did,nt cry maybe its not the reviewers its the fan boys?sonny 1 especially
IMO reviews that give a game a 7.5 or higher (mixed scores) means that the game is not for everyone and this game will really be liked by some. . Everybody needs to ask themselves a few questions before they buy a game. Do I want this game or am I buying it do to the lack of games or boredom? Do I like this style of game (RPG, FPS, etc)? Have I like the story line, screen shots, or videos I have seen from this game? Did I like them? If you answered yes for these questions, then you should buy it.
Reviewers are just like regular gamers, while won reviewer loves Mario the next one favors shooters and does not like the game. Remember 7.5 or better is a good game, 8's and 9's are even better. 10's well you know...
they give 360 games bad scores and PS3 games super high scores, and give halo a 3 out of 10 like i think it deserves... right?
this made me sooo lost now to buyin the game or not >.>
Seriously take my advice after playing both buy Uncharted, it stomps this AC
Are you saying you own Uncharted or that you have played the demo?
he is justa troll trying to hype uncharted in a none uncharted thread HALO 3 is better than uncharted 100% a 10hour single play that involves run and gun ? were is the depth there the graphics on uncharted are cell shadded mostly but i prolly is agood game bu tive grown out of games like that .
Well, I'm glad that I didn't listen to all these reviews. I am having a BLAST with Assassin's Creed. I've been playing it tonight, and people are being way harsh about this game. It is open-ended and a really good time. It is definitely different than anything you have played before, but I like it. Just my 2 cents...
Ive been playin the 360 version non stop today and while I sort of like it, Ive gotta also say it doesnt live up to the hype or what I expected it to be. It looks lovely, very free roaming but the missions are very repetitive and u spend an awful lot of time doin nothing lol. I was expectin a sort of Hitman clone with lots of scouting out ur targets and tryin to work their patterns out and best ways to dispose of them, its very shallow in this sense. A decent game still but very ordinary!
ima bit disappointed i really wanted to have 2 long games to play over Christmas that wud be amazing MASS EFFECT WAS 1 AND AC WAS the other i hoped it was like the best medievil stealth game of all time THIEF 3 i really thought it wud be easy to make a game like that as clip's i had seen of ac just seemed a lot like thief series on pc if its not like this then the game wud be a let down and the game is 10-15hou game not what i expected well at least MASS effect has lived up to the hype and is an amazing game from every 1 that got mass effect early no 1 has anything bad to say about this game and a 40h game good to see i can still look forward to a story based game that is AAA.
I'm playing it right this second and I have to say...it's no 9, more like an 8 maybe. It's an open world but you can't really do anything other than what you're tasked to do. Can't talk to people, can't kill innocents or at least I think you cant. Can't talk to shop owners. Oh and the "futuristic thing" they got going on is freaking annoying, they should of just kept it strictly in that time period. The WORST part about this game? Altair's voice, OMFG...everyone else's voice fits the bill but all of a sudden Ubisoft wanted to make Altair sound like he was born and raised in the American heartland. He sounds way too much like an American and not only that but a TERRIBLE monotonous american. How can they hire and actually APPROVE this guy's voice acting? He sounds like he's some bored dude just reading a script, like a teacher would to their elementary kids. I'd mute it every time he talks but theres no subtitles so I have to suffer through it. Ugh overall AC seems to be a bit of a let down but then again I'm only about 20 minutes into it. Oh and it starts off slow too...
I hope if they do a Sequel they'll change his voice and just retcon it so it won't have to be anything futuristic in it. I'd overlook it if they do decide to retcon I'll just pretend AC1 never happend. Day/Night cycles would of been good, being able to buy new weapons, and a sneak mode. The AI is sooo poor, I just can't believe how anyone can get hit by the enemy AI. The exploration is great but theres just nothing to see. Geeze I don't know anymore.
I was standing in front of this game today and I talked myself out of buying it. I'm sure it's a good game, but I have others I want that I can spend $60 on. Anybody know how the Lego Star Wars for PS3 is? I haven't seen a review for that yet.
It's an OK game, but yea save your money..seriously though I'm just enduring this game, I'd much rather pop in Oblivion and play as an assassin for the Dark Brotherhood, so much better. I don't like how they make these asssassins to be "good assassins". Just doesn't make much sense. I should be able to take a job from some Merchant on the street who wants to off his competition.
There's a reason for why altair has an American accent, if you listen, you will learn that, the reason why everyone speaks english, and such is because that Lucy chick programmed it that way. So that's why.
alot of you guys just complain. maybe assassin's is just one of those games you enjoy in short bursts. anyway, i've been playing it on ps3, and it showed severe framerate drops at first, but just like skate, when i set up the output levels correctly it worked itself out. the game runs smooth, is extrememly repetetive, but is otherwise really, super fun and makes for a nice demo disc. anyway, why is everyone so uptight, most of you will spend ur money on call of duty or uncharted anyway.
so i already killed 7 guys it is so easy, now i almost killed the 8th, but on the 9th i'm planning to have a stealth public execution.
save your money and rent it
this game is not good
it will end up
as one of the most disappointing of 07
This game is a quality control nightmare, they should have delayed it till next year to iron out the bugs, tearing and framerate issues. Take a visit to the official ubisoft forums and have a read there`s a number of problems arising with the game on both platforms. Seems Ubisoft have truly delivered, what could have been a truly awesome game, something thats just mediocre. Its a damn shame, this and call of duty where the two games i wanted this side of christmas. *shakes Fist Angrily*
i think the biggest problems with AC are the missions. you always do the same and there's no real action taking place.
i don't care about framerate issues and tearing if the gameplay is good - and in AC, the gameplay is really not that interesting.
best climbing game 2007 - nothing more, sorry.
Yeap the AI is so dumb there's no real action until the chase part and even the chase has it's flaws. The game suffers from the "Hitman" syndrome, where you're all fine and dandy but just the slightest thing that shouldn't even give you away as an assassin does. Like riding a horse too fast, that gives you away as an assassin? wtf? You could be perfectly covert one second and the next second you don't even do anything and they call you out as an assassin. I'm not too far into the game because I just couldn't take it anymore and had to play a few rounds of Oblivion to entertain me but I'm hoping the missions get more varied later on. Maybe something like working with 2 other assassins or finding a hidden assassin amongst the ranks but then again that would be no challenge neither because the game directs your every move. It's like watching a movie and all you're doing is pressing 1 button to have the actors do everything and when it matters like during fights the buttons get so scrambled it's just aggravating. The fighting sucks!!
Game sites are reviewing game on personnel tastes, and everyone’s taste are different.
I have got all the systems and the banter (childish school playground squabbling) over which system is the best is laughable. I would bet that reviews are showing small amounts of this fanboy crap.
For me fps don't work very well on consoles, just down to not being able to adjusts from ms/kb. I am probably going to get slated for this but the most overrated game ever must be halo 3, no wonder in the UK they didn't show any in game graphs on any adverts, just some animated toys lol. When i got that game home i don't think i have ever been so disappointed by a game before, literally couldn't see hardly any improvements over the old xbox game and everyone one is saying how good it looks.
I think there is no easy answer to this as one mans munta is another’s stunna.
No, it's not perfect, but it is damn fun. It's a nice break from all the FPS madness.
After about 8 hrs of gameplay, i'd give it a preliminary 9/10.
