John of GAMElitist.com - "Hasn’t it gotten old by this point? I feel like the story never moves forward because Desmond is perpetually trapped inside of that damn Animus."
never, all of there games are great. <3 copernicus conspiracy
It very much so has gotten boring.
the first game by itself got super old super quick, then assassins creed 2 was pretty dang good and they fixed everything, then brother hood was just AC2 with 2 more weapons, then revalations, seems more of the same but i didn't get to try it myself yet
The story is what the game is about. If you don't like it then that's why it has gotten boring.
The story is absolute garbage. The pace at which it advance is so slow that I totally forgot what it was all about.
They just need to finish the current story arch in 2012 then either take a break or start something fresh with a new story.
^ This Hopefully by that time the next generation is here and they make a new IP, leaving Assassin's Creed on the side for a while. Maybe even for an entire generation. It's a great franchise, but Ubisoft hurt it by making it a yearly release.
That's really my only complaint, it's taken this many games to even get where we are I wanna know how it ends already.
I'm still working my way through Revelations (way too many games to play actively right now) but I'm having a blast. I will say they missed on some new mechanics (bad tower defense) but the story is still aces and I'm enjoying it a lot
It got old half way through the first game for me. Haven't gone back to it yet. I am sure it is a good game but for me... it was more of the same thing as I played through it.
I never really liked the AC games. IDKW
It's pretty clear what's happened here. Ubisoft has always planned the AC franchise to be a trilogy. They made the first one, then the second was also a hit. They decided they weren't ready to finish the series off, so we've gotten the ACII extensions. They need to give up the idea of this being a trilogy. I think the game has tons of potential in other time periods. It's pretty obvious the last game will be Desmond in the present, which I'm all for, but I want more AC in past time periods. Get over Ezio, Ubisoft, and give us some more cool locales. Either postpone the last game in the "present" or find a way to make more games in other time eras after the last one in the trilogy. It doesn't necessarily need to end after the Desmond timeline. Also, ditch the garbage multi-player.
Perhaps after the Desmond storyline, they could add prequels where Desmond goes to another time period. Or even, if somebody else takes control of the Animus somehow.
I'm wondering how many of you have actually played through an entire AC game... anywho, I like to play them for their great stories which can be very tragic at times. and sure its a lot of the same gameplay mechanics but this has been improved upon after every game AC revelations being the most fun to play yet in my opinion.
It got old for me at brotherhood...never finished it. Ac2 is the only one I've really liked.
AC brotherhood was too much like ac2, so I stopped playing. AC:R doesn't look much different. ubi needs to give the series an overhaul, or at least a break.
love it. they always have engaging storylines and add new gameplay elements that change the experience. would love to see another important assassin between ezio and desmond in the same blood line.
Assassins Creed Revelations = uninterested ...I'd pay $20, no more.
i got bored after assassins creed 2. haven't played any since and dont plan on it unless they bring in all desmond gameplay in the future.
AC1 can only be played via the shortest route possible, too boring for completionists, not bad this way. Feel in love with AC2 and every sequel since. Fantastic story combing stealth and sword play. This type of gameplay suits me, each to there own though, for instance FPS games are stale for me, I find running around shooting people dull.
It got old in Venice in Assasin' s Creed 2 for me. EDIT: I mean I liked a LOT the setting, but I was bored because of the game mechanics.
