What about the characters and plot?

XbladeTeddy1863d ago

The plot isn't as bad as people make out. Some characters could do with work but none are as bad as people make out. I really enjoyed this remaster and did get to like Connor in the end.

I think a lot of Americans don't like to be reminded they invaded and murdered millions of natives.
AC3 was my favourite in the franchise and the last true Assassins creed game. Connor was a badass, wo much better than that ponce Ezio.

FalconofLucis981863d ago

AC3 had a great story, dunno what youre on about the characters were great and the music was on par with AC2. Guess some people cant handle change.

toxic-inferno1863d ago

To be honest, I just remember this game being almost completely derived of humour... Which seemed strange when it was sandwiched between the Ezio trilogy and Black Flag, neither of which seemed to suffer from taking themselves too seriously.

starchild1863d ago

The plot and characters were good. I really liked Connor and his story.

UnHoly_One1863d ago

As a huge AC fan since day 1, my problem with this game was that Connor himself was just so utterly boring...

But then since it was set during a huge piece of American History, they surrounded him with every possible known character and every major event of the time.

The main character was overshadowed by everyone else around him.

It became kind of a Forrest Gump story, honestly.

The writers just jammed their plain boring character into every page of the history book.

ChrisSmithee1862d ago

I think people judge AC3 too harshly, especially considering it was trying to move away from the first games that felt too claustrophobic and was experimenting with new landscapes. The plot wasn't that bad m8

hope watch dogs 3 gets the same treatment as Ac3 when it comes to redefining gameplay mechanics after second part.

They did the OG GTA Trilogy dirty.

badz149414d ago

yup, with the amount of money they are making with GTAV, and the amount of time they've had with both the games and the hardware, what they chose to do with the Remasters was criminal!

just_looken414d ago

So true but the worst is the borderline death of the mod community thanks to the remaster and take 2 in general.

They are remastering gtaiv so now any mod for that game is under fire and soon a worse version of that game will get tossed out.

If you head to youtube there is a year later videos on the gta trilogy they now removed stuff like physics to get the game to work but its still trying to be as good as those mobile ports.

Here is one good video to watch

I recall the remaster of IV got cancelled in order to prioritise VI and fixing the trilogy. But I'm assuming this is as good as the 'definitive' trilogy will get through official support - I wonder how much more could be done by the mod community. The original III and VC have reverse engineered ports which are probably the best current way to play them.

just_looken413d ago

@chard

Groove street is working on a unannounced project still they are going to do something for gtaiv anniversary based on a rumor.

Do not forget gta trilogy was the 3rd best selling game under the take 2 umbrella that year.

Demetrius414d ago

Ain it tho smh and they still won’t overhaul them smh I just purchased the original trilogy for my ps2 slim the cds were even still new posters in the case with the manuals lol I still play them for hours I won’t even look at gameplay of the defective edition bullsh**

Chard414d ago

are they still patching it?

just_looken413d ago

grove street stopped patching few months in and is now working on a unannounced title while a inhouse team in rockstar made the game playable so all missions can be finished and got that team got it back on steam store.

As my comment uptop states there are videos showing documentation and though it on steam the game is not near the quality of the mobile ports it came from. The ps2 era copies just destroy it overall.

Profchaos413d ago (Edited 413d ago )

Yet it still sold over 10 million. I'm guilty of buying it twice ps5 and switch. And it still crashes at the end of specific missions like the casino heist in GTA SA when playing at 30 fps or the mission in vc where you and Lance race the boat to the dealer.

Despite that it's still better than it was but could be better.

They knew these games had huge demand they should of done each game properly seven if that meant developing each title individually over a year or two rather than all three at once and or a full remake rather than a remaster with generic ue4 assets and effects slotted in

Yet despite all of this I'm extremely hopeful that after 6 drops we get a HD trilogy on modern system whatever that may be ps6 switch 3 and Xbox series next

I thought the GTA trilogy was great. The changes to the controls and combat made it big improvement over the originals.

just_looken414d ago

If you had a pc you would know silent patch along with a few other mods to make said controller your using and mods to make said pc to work would give you a far better experience and for way less money.

There were gta san andreas mods that blew away what grove street did.

The weapon wheel by the way was from a mod.

This video alone is a middle finger to grove street

Yea San Andreas had a good multiplayer mod just a short bit after it came out which was really popular.

just_looken413d ago (Edited 413d ago )

That mp mod then after there what we all battle royal now was great same with the just cause mp.

isarai413d ago

I think some improvements were cool, but overall it's a MUCH lesser experience than playing the originals. The aiming is garbage in the trilogy, and even the "classic" mode isn't done right, especially how it locks into NPCs in cars, crap has gotten me killed so many times in the remasters. And un the original GTASA you could click R3 to switch between locked in and free aim in the fly, in the remasters you have to change it in the options menu to go from locked in to free aim

Tales or Symphonia Remastered

gold_drake414d ago

the silent hill collection was pretty ... odd.
not because they fucked it up, but damn. some choices were made ha.

just_looken413d ago

A classic were the publisher made a billion that year but could not afford to produce another patch do too hosting fees.

cammers1995413d ago

PS3 got the final patch. 360 did not. Some say the final patch worked, some say it didn't. I honestly think it depends on console model of the PS3 and other factors. Something was really weird with how those games played. Sh2 ran fine for most, sh3 depended on PS3 model.
