Assassins Creed 3 – 9.5 wtf? I cant even bring myself to finish it, each there own i guess, I really enjoyed Dishonored, playing through it again to get the platinum

Derekvinyard132660d ago

Good score for hitman. cant wait

Hydrolex2660d ago

yes, Hitman is what I'm really looking forward this month.

Nimblest-Assassin2660d ago (Edited 2660d ago )

Im interested in Hitman, although I never played a game in the franchise

Also... why are people comparing AC to Hitman and Dishonored?

Hitman and Dishonored make more sense to compare, since they are the same genre of game

AC is more comparable to red dead, and GTA.

They are different games, and your likliness of liking the game, depends on your tastes.

If you like open world games, you'll probably like AC

If you like stealth games, you will like Dishonored and Hitman

AC - DISHONORED - HITMAN .. they all are about assassinating people.

well that was in ac1 anyway ..
I believe ac and dishonored are really close ..but dishonored is much much better because its more focused on the good stuff while ac have gone worse for the sake of variety .. didn't play ac3 yet (waiting for the pc version )

Nimblest-Assassin2660d ago


So they are similar because you assassinate people?

Does that mean that Halo 4 is like Dishonored and AC? You assassinate people in that game? How about uncharted?

As someone who played both games... they are very different

Dishonored is not open world... its wide linear

They are different games... the only similarities is the character is an assassin and they kill people... but thats it. Nothing else can be compared

xPhearR3dx2660d ago


Umm, Dishonored is not linear by any means. If anything, Dishonored and Hitman are very similar. Both offer huge sandbox levels with a wide variety of gameplay options. I enjoyed Dishonored VERY much and made the wait for Hitman less painful. Either way, November 20th can't come soon enough.

SolidStoner2659d ago

I played all Hitman games, its my TOP 5 favorite game series! other 4 - GTA, GranTurismo, Battlefield, Fallout!

yaz2882659d ago


in ac1 you had a list " Nine men needs to die .."
dishonerd is the same .. and the way you approche these people is very special and how you face them ..

halo and un are like killing the guards in ac .. I am talking about killing the big boys ( some special group of guys) here and when I say assassinate I mean stealth and planing .. (something that is missing from all the ac games so far .. except the first game)

"Dishonored is not open world... its wide linear "
being an open world game doesn't mean better .. dishonered feel like an open world game though. and the way you navigate the environment is crazy that crate endless possibilities

the same thing I can say about ac3 .. wide linear .. from what I ve heard the opening level they got you to follow arrows .. no freedom .. where dishonered is the complete opposite ... still I don't want to judge the game yet. ( still didn't play it )

my favorite ac games are .. ac1( BERFECT!!) and revelation so far
.. brotherhood had the best gameplay but a crap story

ac2 is the worst game I ev ever played..

It really is to each there own cause I'm the opposite. I couldn't even play halfway through dishonored I just couldn't stand that game. But I'm loving ac3 so far.

Only 'cus the AI is fail.

TheRealSpy2660d ago

I felt the same way about both Dishonored AND Assassin's Creed. I think AC3 is probably the best game in the series, but after 100% completion of AC2, i've just never been able to enjoy myself in that world. I get bored too quickly.

Wow, really have to ait another month for GI's black ops 2 review? What a crappy embargo...

Alcohog2660d ago

I couldn't finish any AC game, but I love AC3. Interesting. Also Dishonored was one of the best games of the year. Insanely addicting gameplay; great universe.

8 for LBP Karting is what I like to see, I don't even slightly know what happened over at IGN :/

triplethreatattack2660d ago

IGN has their opinion, and so does GI. Want to complain some more?

WeAreLegion2660d ago

According to IGN, an opinion is like saying the color red equals seven.

Agheil2660d ago

Lol why are you getting so worked up I'm just surprised by the 5.5 score as other websites have given it higher ones. I found the game fun too.

triplethreatattack2659d ago


Still an opinion. I genuinely love the game, but I don't slam sites when they give said game a low score, because it's their opinion. It's pointless to complain, they arent going to change their score because an eight year old is complaining in the comments that their score was "wrong". Just please dont bring up other sites opinions in a negative matter, to each his own.

harrisk9542659d ago

I think that Greg Miller is just butt hurt that Sony replaced ModNation Racers with LBP Karting.

Hasanhastam2660d ago

Forza and dishonored 8.75 and ac3 9.5 . Ac3 was nothing

KingKevo2660d ago

See, I didn't enjoy Dishonored. Maybe not my type of game, however AC3 is and I see the game at a 9 rating, 9.5 may be a bit too much though.

Nimblest-Assassin2660d ago

Here's a fun fact for you... all those reviews were written by different people... I know shocking right?

In the end, the score at the end is all people care about, when in reality...people need to read the review first... and understand why that score was given to the game

triplethreatattack2659d ago

You sir, are a god among men.

BuLLDoG9092660d ago

indeed its not much compared to dishonored, a fresh great new ip..
i fell for the hype for ac3, and as a game for the first 10 or so hours its all over the place.
then it settles down a bit, and i realized they havnt really evolved the series or brought it to another level like all the hype leading up to the release would make you believe...

its still a decent game, that can get frustrating at times,i had to drag myself back to play on after a string of buggy fetch quest like missions,
the game could of used at least another 6 months to polish.. i give it an 8.0

DrDeath2660d ago

Why did ign give such a bad rating to LBP: KArting? is it relle that bad? i cant see a LBP getting anything less than an 8/10 by the community. people eat that shit up. im not a big fan myself but i see the charm it has.

HammadTheBeast2660d ago

It's because they over hyped it and they were stuck on thinking that it was Modnation 2.

TooTall192660d ago

Cause Greg Miller and Colin Moriarty have bad taste in games.

LOGICWINS2660d ago

By that logic Uncharted 3, Infamous 2, and The Unfinished Swan are bad games.

SAE2660d ago


ign review the games by there opinion and not what the game deliver , look at gt5 review , they hated the game because it's too hard so they played it less then 5 hours , have bad looking smoke , forza is more fun and realistic to them , they forgotten every thing that makes gt5 a good game and just mentioned what they hate about it and compared it to forza , no one hyped gt5 because it took PD 5 years to release it , so ign reviews are not for real gamers that looking for good games , little big planet karting looks fun and worth at least 7/10 to real gamers ...

LOGICWINS2660d ago

You throw around the term "real gamer" quite often. I missed the memo where you were proclaimed king of gaming, granting you the ability to determine the characteristics and gaming preferences of a supposed "real gamer".


"ign review the games by there opinion and not what the game deliver"

Your contradicting yourself. EVERY game delivers SOMETHING. Whether or not what that game delivers is worth the price of entry is an OPINION.

TooTall192660d ago

Just because I agree with them a few times does not make up for the countless times that I disagree with them.

SAE2660d ago (Edited 2660d ago )

real gamers means a person who love games and search for every good game to play it and have fun , what ign do is a work not gaming , they play the game to review it to get money, they are not playing it for fun like us , thats the perfect reason to not take there opinion seriously , i played many games that got bad reviews and scores but they are really fun...

i dont consider my self king of gamers , i just dont want someone mis a game like little big planet karting because of a score or a payed opinion...

call my self a gamer is not a showoff , it's just like the other words that have the er in the end , it means he do this hobby and love it ...
