Any doubts about Assassin's Creed can now be put to rest, as the game's sell-through sales have already topped the record level of 1 million units.
the game is sh*t.
Is on PC, PS3 and 360, so what ? They should stop with the praising of this game and get to fixing the bugs
By not buying a game. Watch, it will be 900,000 360 to 100,000 Ps3 lol
Unfortunately for me I was one of those 1M :(
man doubt you even played the game Im over 3 days in and its freaking fantastic. No freezes since we got the fix the amazing graphics and story are taking me place Ive never been in a game before.
Its a fantastic game that lets you explore a world torn from our own history. Do you know what its like to walk the streets of Jerusalem in the 12th century? To deftly navigate its streets and roofs to find your mark and doing it all your way? Countless hours of exploration tons of hidden treasures and rewards not to mention breath taking scope. I cant wait to hop on the best rendered horse in the history of gaming and ride off to Acre to hunt my next kill.
ps if this game doest get GOTY the systems rigged.
It doesn't come out until next year on PC.And, its not that bad of a game.I like the hell out of it.It gets better when you start unlock all your stuff.The grab ledge and grab break alone have made the game more fun for me.
You wouldn't know a good game if it f*cked your mom.
Is that stupid question for me? If so here is my answer:
I am a gamer for a sh*t load of time... I'm 37 years old and been gaming since I was 12
I purchased AC for PS3 but I don't like it. Do I need to like it just because you do? lol
Anyway here is my AC experience: kicked off the game went through that annoying tutorial for Altair controls then got some 1191 AC action and was having fun when I got pulled back into the future time because the female scientist wanted me to rest... went back in, lost all my powers and then got my assignment for the first kill and another tutorial (fight tutorial). Anyway was still having fun so I completed the first kill and went back to get the 2nd kill assignment. I got 2 to choose from so I went to Jerusalem to start working on the second kill and got bored. Second kill was just like the first one... spy on 2 dudes, pick pocket another dude and kill the target dude... hmm, didn't I just did that?
Also I hated both the melee combat and the unskilled jumping around. Hold R1+X and Altair never misses a jump, nice. Hold R1 and hit square to counter attack and one shoot the dude, nice. Not going to say anything about the fact that you have to climb lots of freaking towers that all look the same to see stuff on your map. Really I have the game but I wish I didn't.
I bought the game first day LE. Played it for about 6hrs, popped it out put in Oblivion or CoD4, AC has yet to look inside my PS3 since.
@1.2: Your statement reeks of troll sh1tt, previous reports stated the the 360 version accounted for 67 percent assuming its only console sales. That leaves 33 percent for the ps3, so that leaves a max estimated 330k min 200k.
@ krik is it your post??? obviously my answer is for the guy Im replying to.... but since your so chipper here we go.
you know you dont need to do all the interrogation's or citizen missions right? Once you find the mark you can pretty much slay at will...
Not only that but did you notice the difference between the cities and even among the guards in any one city? Has for the lookouts flags and other stuff its all optional m8 and personally Im having a blast doing all the side missions nothing beats finding all the lookout points or saving all the citizens imo. The fighting can be pretty tense too if your not positioned right and have 4 or five guards swinging at you good chance they'll land a hit or two maybe even kill ya even if you try and counter. Not to mention if its still to easy for you you can choose not to use counter at all....
Personally tho i think your full of it... tell you what tell us what the second mark does for kicks if you have indeed played the game.
aSSASIn creed is better than uncharted deall with it there oth same genre compare what they both bring uncharted 2 style attacks lame story assins creed so many ways to kill HUNDREDS OF PPL AT 1 TIME ON THE SCREEN full built citys to scale any were a decnt story a bloody game with blood uncharted is a joke the combat gameplay is soo liner all the guns sound the same ill never buy a game in which there is no depth it what it meant to do come on gears of war sucked but her it had toteally defet weap[ojns that did defferent things uncharteds is a PA PAP PA PAP game the guns all are the same the tracer fire is lik ps1
Unbelievable... A half assed game like Assassins Creed. Word of mouth didn't catch on fast enough, I suppose. I won't be venturing into Assassins Creed 2 terroity, that's for sure. I learned my lesson this time aorund. Ubi-soft, you make the worst damn games EVER! Sneak King is more quality than this puddle of pig PI$$. Atleast it boots up, plays and runs without freezing.
this is the worst game in history 2 sell a million
they wont fool nobody next time
(reply)Dr Pepper your so right
i forgot about that crap of a game
i hope you are just some home schooled 14 year old or else you are trying to sound annoying everytime you post. everyone look at this guys posts they are great!!! i just come to n4g to look for this guy!! oh... yeah and all games ubi soft make are bad? have you ever played rainbow six... "jackson"?
I haven't played this yet, but I highly doubt it's the worse game to ever sell a million. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the 50 Cent game sold over a million.
I don't know about you, but I'd rather have Assassins Creed.
personally, i think you're both nuts. i've put hours into this game so far and have loved every second of it. but that's just my opinion.
Agreed. I can't imagine anyone not liking AC. The game is truly fun and enjoyable. Definitly deserves the sales and even more.
I'm definitely going to purchase and play it...when, I don't know...the wallet will be on life support soon...lol...anybody who wants to give JC a Christmas present, just PM me and let me know...lol...game on...
agree with both you chaps. the game is fun.
If Assasin's Creed came out before reviews, everyone would say it's a good game. It's not GOTY, but everyone who's totally shooting it down and letting reviews pursway them has no credibility. The game is good, period. It's not Bioshock or any of the super AAA games we've previously had, but people are acting it's just the absolute worst game ever.
I'm am loving me some Assassin's Creed.Just started memory block 4.I'm liking this game like I thought I would.It hasn't froze on me in about three or four days.I think I'm going to go play it now.
Bubbles for all of you.
JC, I'm already broke. I spent all the money I had saved for PS3 on current games and yet had to leave many other games that I wanted.
All I can say is... game on :)
Marceles, while I still believe that AC is a AAA game, I agree with you that if the game was out before reviews, people would have been different. Also, great point about people talking about AC as the worst game ever :)
UPDATE: Agreed with Daxx. Bubbles for you too :)
UPDATE 2: Thanks jcgamer :) and agreed on new IPs. Hope Mass Effect, Uncharted and Rock Band sell a lot (But deep inside, I pray AC sells the most. I'm an Assassins fanatic...)
I agree, this game is tons of fun and it needs not to go unnoticed. I'm glad that it has sold 1 million copys. ^_^
I hear you bro...game on...and bubbles all around...sup Daxx!...and I agree, I'm glad that a new IP launched so successfully...cheers to Mass Effect and Uncharted being a success as well...I'm pretty sure Rock Band will also...
In my head, I would think it's AAA too actually...but it seems like everyone will just follow the leader and join in on the AC bashing.
Im in with this pro AC group great game played the hell out of it till I got Uncharted....
But those freaking bugs choose to rear there ugly heads a few days ago game froze on me a few times but a simple reboot did the job...ppl should definetly buy this game and judge it for themself...
I say bring on AC2 Ubi..!!
i agree with chester 11 of the best looking games thsi yearexcept mayebe mass effect bu ti dont have it to jugdeuis no out in the uk, and man i loved the 1st assasination tbh that were im at when that guys kills the dude in frion of evey 1 how brutal this game is a good game and im happy to see every 1 on my freind list has assasins creed on xbox live so do i P.s IM BUYING BULDER GATE 2 TODAY THO hahah never played it ive heard to much about it that i give in that the only aaa rate rpg iv enot played as i played a lot of jrpg in th epast
Is AC really good?
Because i buy Ac, mass effect, call of duty 4 and i hadn´t played the games yet. I´m waiting for my 360 arrive from repair from Microsoft. Is it really good?
I'd like to see a statistic based on who likes the game and who doesn't compared to which console they're running the game on.
@heihoosilver: The game is awesome... but so is Mass Effect. I'm torn between the two as to which should get game of the year. :)
I"m actually really happy it sold well. I loved it, but that if it was more refined and better AI that ubisoft could have a masterpiece. So maybe they can take their ideas and tweek it a little bit and make AC 2 the game AC 1 should have been.
I'm with you. It's more than great that a good new IP is selling well enough. Personally I think AC1 is a masterpiece even with AI problems and other bugs but that's just me. The experience is always worth more than technical view and AC was one of the best and most unique gaming experiences I've had in years.
This will help ensure a sequel.I really like the whole story so far.I like a little sci-fi twist in my cheerios.lol
Well, that's your opinion to have... Mine is of the "I don't care, like or even think about this game" nature. It was a huge waste of time, strung together by massively long, drawn out boring cut scenes and a bland character that you swap into. It's terrible. The whole aspect of the game reeked of Si-fi original picture. Maybe even worse.
Enjoy the game, I'm glad you and apparently millions of others are... Someone has to buy the $hit Ubi-soft dumps out of their outhouse.
next gen kid we knwo why ALL PS3 TROLS on this site hating on assasin is because they are angry that a muliplatfiorm game called assisns creed look /plays muchh better/and has a better sotry lien than uncharted drakes fortune belie u me ac is a much deeper gam than uncharted which is a popcorn flick of a game
and I thought it was great. Games are always released with bugs, or collision detection issues.
I give Ubisoft props for at least delivering a new IP with a fresh idea. If this game sells well it will give them incentive to bring out other new IP's.
I haven't experienced any freezing issues with my copy. I'm not saying it isn't true, just hasn't happenend to me. Some people are too picky these days.
Maybe it's because i've had no issues with it, but i like this game. I like games that put me through a brand new experience. I love the graphics too.
I'm in the fence, I'll just wait for a patch.
Your in the fence? how did you manage to do that?
I had no issues with it I love every minute of it I still haven't complete I'm just taking my time because i like looking at the city from the church on top AHHHHHHHH NICE GRAPHICS!
...it deserves to sell over a million units.Whoever disses this game is just a blind fanboy.
Agreed. It's crazy how PS3 fans call AC a bad 360 game and 360 fans call it a bad PS3 title.
I'm sure most of haters didn't even try the game and just hate it because IGN and few others said so. Also, many others tried the game prepared and expecting to be disappointed. Approaching any game that way results in disappointment, no matter how good it is. BioShock, Orange Box, Uncharted, Halo 3 and others could end up disappointing if one only is trying to be disappointed.
Stop hating and start playing...
P.S. Bubbles for you :)
Can't even get myself to waste credit on this, will be so mad if it is bad.
I'm still buying it in the next few days. Bestbuy is selling it for $40 if you buy COD4 for the full price. Bestbuy is out of stock since last week when the promo began. There were quite a lot of people at the store going to purchase this and we were all let down by the surprise sell out of both games so Bestbuy gave us all rainchecks.
I'm sure the next part of Assassins won't have any major problems. If it still does then Ubisoft Montreal will lose all its credibility from fans forever.
It looks so cool. You can see from the videos thats its an easy sell.
Regardless of how good it is.
The game is still a buggy POS flop, not worth 60 bones for sure.
now madden also sells millions that doesnt make madden the best game.
the only reason assasin crap is selling.
1. on 3 platforms.
2. alot of hype
still the game has tons of flaws and its boring with pathetic missions assasing here assasing there, crap even massive flop looks decent.
simply stunning imo
It's good to hear that Assassin's Creed has sold 1 million on PS3. It's numbers such as these that will make statements on where the market is shifting to. All fingers are pointing towards Sony's masterfully crafted PLAYSTATION 3 Home Entertainment system.
It's the combined sales dude.
dont get ahead of your self yet. numbers sold reflects the xbox360 and ps3.
I was one of those mil too. I really really hope they come through for the sequel because there were some things that were set up in the first that if done correctly, could make the 2nd positively mindblowing. I kept playing to see the story pan out, and it did even though I predicted a lot of it. Yes I was one of the ones who had bugs, boy did I. The game crashed on me like a little over a dozen times especially towards the end. I still enjoyed it and did pretty much everything but collect all of those stupid flags and kill all of the templars.
i'm glad 360 users, didnt ignore this game and just settle for mass and or halo. Ubisoft needs these sales. 4 years and millions of $$$
i can't wait to get it.
This game is a great, unique, genre-breaking experience that deserves a 9+. Learn to expand your horizons, noobs and haters. Not all games have to be a sci-fi FPS in outer space with ridiculously disproportionate "space marines" battling the evil forces of Skelator or some crazy made-up villain.
God forbid a game actually break from the FPS mold and deliver a unique gaming experience based on real-life historical characters.
Agree. Every game that wasn't FPS was almost attacked for some reason. BioShock, COD4 and Orange Box are superb AAA games but so are Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed and Uncharted yet those FPS titles have average of 94 to 96 at Metacritic with all fans praising them while ME, AC and Uncharted are at 93, 84 and 87 at Meta with many people attacking them.
Seriously, it's like every game has to have FPS multiplayer to get great scores these days. AC IS a truly great game and well worth a 9/10.
Now I'm waiting for new IP from Ubisoft Montreal and ofcourse for Beyond Good and Evil sequel. I wish they will make it.
It's easily a 9 in my book.
Take your time and you'll enjoy it and get the max out of what is a ferkin good game if your in a rush like some of them half assed reveiwers you aint gonna enjoy it!! Remember not every game needs to be finished in the first weekend
"Remember not every game needs to be finished in the first weekend"
Man you nailed that on the head! And honestly...that is the problem with most reviews these days...they try and pump it out in ONE flippin day.
+bubble for you!
I'm glad the title sold over 1 million... i love this game... too bad i can't finish because my 360 crapped on me AGAIN within 2 weeks of getting it back from Texas... smh.
"Assassin's Sells Over 1 Million"
Next month: "100,000 X360 copies and 300,000 PS3 copies returned to stores."
trying 2 get our money back
for one of the worst games of the year
I'm part of the 1 million who bought and man am I loving this game. Now, I need some more money to buy Mass Effect and maybe get Uncharted if its any good.
Assassin's is good and all, but probably a great game like Uncharted will be ignored. :(
HAHA it's actually nice to see that alot of people enjoyed the game..judging from the backclash Ubisoft recieved a couple days ago..
I hope alot of PS3 owners go out and buy UNCHARTED also i've done my part already..!!
there a very few real gamer that have the ps3 the sales on ac when released wikl show u troll 800 for xbox and 200 for ps3 sold i bet as most ppl i know that hae a ps3 is ppl like mu dumb older brother and his m8 who go to partys all the time and is uni and he dos not even know what gpu/cpu is he just amazed with all the gagdets th ps3 has not lieing just telling th etruth it does not matter how many ps3 are out there but are pl buyinh games no gamer if they had a ps3 wud let a game pass as wwe are seeihng with ps3 software they just dont sell this is the key to winnign the console market as u make a profit from software in th elong term to balance ur losses when u 1st re;leased ur console .
People really don't care about the critics, here is the prouf.
Bravo a tout les Québécois qui ont travaillé sur assasin.
Would it sell 2millions for Xmass?
Ass cream and it'll sell half of that with thrice the install base.
Keep your trap shut. If you don't like the game, don't post a dumbf*ck comment about it. Go whine somewhere else.
I've been playing Assassin's the entire day and I have to say it's a pretty good game. For me its a dead 8 for sure. Good fun, will last you ages finding those flags. The visuals are gorgeous and the enemy A.I really isn't bad, its just the combat can be sometimes a bit hit and miss. They can be a great challenge initially but once you learn how to actually fight in the game, it's a good change from those hardcore games.
once you get the counter attack the game is way to easy....I started fighting with my short sword just to mix it up....
Edit: I don't like the disagree button/link since it doesn't give a reasoning thus the post.
