Why I’m finally excited about Assassin’s Creed again

Power Cords Head Editor and Contributor Brendan Hesse writes about how he has been disappointed by Assassin Creed in the past but with the more and more info being released about the third game he starting to believe he won't be disappointed by the next installment in the series. (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Im not, id like to be "excited" for AC3 but im not, i know now its gonna play EXACTLY the same as the past games, same combat system, same level of violence, same kill cams, same missions

Im tired of all that, its like ridin the same women for 6 years, its starts off new/fun, but over time, you know exactly what your doin, the "excitement" wears off, you want summin new

By your judgement then a lasting relationship is an impossibility lol.

I disagree, I have no particularly high hopes for the game yet, But I fail to see how it could be the same, There will not be any built up cities to be jumping from building to building on.

This clearly meant a large change in the play style as they had to create a new engine for it. It will definitely be different, if it is as much fun remains to be seen

They said they have been developing a brand new engine and have taken up combat from scratch. I agree with you in that I am more than sick of the combat at this stage, and even when I first heard that they were improving combat I didn't believe it but they have detailed things more and it all sounds good. Admittedly I'm still slightly sceptical but I know we'll get footage of it soon so I'll judge then.

"play EXACTLY the same as the past games"

False. If you read the previews, you will know that this game will have a completely redone combat system, tree climbing, hunting (Wildlife) and a new engine. To me that sounds like it's going to play a lot different than the past.

I'm actually interested in this one and I haven't been able to force myself to complete or finish any of the other AC games to date.

I've decided to pass on all annualized titles. I'm done with milked franchises. No more Street Fighter, CoD, Spider-Man, Transformers, and Assassin's Creed....especially AC.

What bothers me about the "new" game is the fact that all of the beneficial changes made to AC3 should be in AC Brotherhood and Revelations. They intentionally gimped two games during the 3 year dev time for AC3. Ubi knew they were shoveling the same s*** every year and basically whoring out one of their top franchises.

At least it took two generations to burn out Prince of Persia...

I didn't like AC1 but the sequels seemed to get better each time and the story has always been good.

As long as the story is good and they add new things to keep it fresh, it should be a solid game.

Let's just hope there's no ME3 type ending with this one.

Loved 1 and 2, just couldnt get into brotherhood, though I didnt really give it much of a chance and I havent touched revelations, but this has got me pretty interested in assassins creed again
