First fifteen minutes of ACR on the PS3 *spoilers*
Looks like more of the same. Which isn't a bad thing, but I'll wait till the price drops to pick this one up. Didn't Brotherhood only come out a year ago?
More of the same is what AC series have been. The gameplay in Altair and Ezio trilogy has been mostly alike, added a few abilities in each one but I enjoy AC for the story. It's interesting to follow Ezio from just a troublemaker kid and being ladiesman in his early years to learning the responsibility of being the Assassin as he gets older. If you follow each game, you know what Ezio was feeling in the his letter to his sister. He has been an Assassin for 35-40 years. I read somewhere Ezio is in his 50s in Revelations. But for gamers who are more interested in the battle than story, each sequel doesn't change much.
Yet people flame CoD because its the same.
Yea, I think the story is alright, but nothing spectacular. But good enough to keep me entertained. I really enjoy the settings of the games and the cool environments, especially Rome. It was cool to run around on top of places I've been to in real life. And Intentions, If I played CoD, I'd be saying the same thing. That it's the same game and I'm going to wait for the price to drop because I can't justify spending $60 on something I've pretty much already played. But every CoD after 4 has been a giant bag of shit in my eyes and I don't want to waste my time. Not even sure why you brought CoD into this conversation, anyway. I said AC was more of the same and because of it, I wouldn't pay full price.
Most gamers play COD for multiplayer, not the story. Personally, I don't like newer COD because it's mostly the same in multiplayer. Even the story campaign doesn't have much story anymore. I just rented MW3 and the story campaign is like short flashes of events. A few times I got confused who I'm fighting for since I jumped from person to another person and never given much time to really know who I am. It's completely opposite Assassin's Creed series. It's difficult make a series that follow mostly one main character with one epic storyline. Even Uncharted series are independent storyline in each game except you follow Nathan's crew on his separate adventures. Nathan doesn't seem to age at all unlike Ezio. And you can also call Uncharted series battle system is mostly of the same but I don't hear fans complain about it.
