Absolutely not the game will still be a success although I personally will not support the game nor any more games from ND. This has nothing to do with the leaks but rather how ND has reacted in response to them its clear the company no longer cares for its fans anymore.

Almost every Assassin's Creed game is $12 or less — get them cheap

There's never been a better time to get into Assassin's Creed thanks to these deals.

I got Odyssey and Mirage to play still.

CobraKai1d 4h ago (Edited 1d 4h ago )

Ha. At least youre in the more current side of AC.

The_Hooligan16h ago

@Cobra

The older ones are kind of a chore. I did enjoy Syndicate and Unity, though.

@Hoologan

I had a good time with Origins for the most part.

anast1d 4h ago (Edited 1d 4h ago )

If they are all Gold versions, it's definitely worth it.

Chocoburger1d 1h ago (Edited 1d 1h ago )

Waste of money, after the Desmond story arch, but even worse is that its a waste of time. The franchise is just spinning its wheels going nowhere. The further you progress through the series, the more 'corporate' it begins to feel, until its nothing but an empty husk, begging for you to spend money on its micro-trash-action store. There are loading screens in Origins informing you that if you spend money on "fun costumes" you'll feel better! Despicable.

Save your time for something better. Modern day Ubisoft is garbage.

To each their own I guess? I really enjoyed them up until odyssey and valhalla was decent. I still really enjoy exploring the massive detailed worlds and the characters, stories, gear, and combat.

I have never once been swayed by a loading screen trying to get me to buy DLC as these games have 10x more content than you would ever see anyway. I do agree the series seems to be going the wrong direction at the moment, but would still highly recommend origins, odyssey, and to a lesser extent, valhalla if you enjoy adventure and exploration games.

not every AC game is worth playing tho ha.

i feel like it stopped being good after 3. and 3 was even a stretch.

1 and 2 tho? amazing.

Modern Games Are Getting Too Long

While there’s a lot to love about modern video games, there is one trend — particularly in the AAA space — that tends to grate: their length.

Games are coming out with too much fluff and side activities that are horribly dull. That's my main issue with all these open world games. Open world should be about exploration, discovery and wonder, not have some stupid 10s or 100s of boring activities spread throughout.

IAMRealHooman112d ago

100% agree
All these ubisoft titles, Farcry, AC, Ghost recon, boast huge maps, but with the same, 3 missions or the same base to clear 100s of times. Hour 1 of any of those titles is the same as hour 100, there big for the sake of being big, with the illusion of player freedom, where we really want depth and player expression.

Ninver111d ago

Give me a solid 15-20 hour engaging single player driven IP any day. Life's too short you dig.

isarai112d ago

I stopped buying overfluffed games like a decade ago. Cant stand games with the Ubisoft mindset of just filling maps with uselss collectibles and fodder. Make it mean something. Ill gladly take 1/4 size of the map and 1/10th the "content" if it all meant more, were more unique and greater affect on your progression.

Abnor_Mal112d ago (Edited 112d ago )

Well people complained like the world was ending when a few games were six to ten hours of gameplay. Developers listened and started making longer games full of repetitive gameplay, time wasting fetch quest and other forms of bloat. In doing so they were able to justify the high cost of a game being sold to the customers at seventy dollars or more.

H9112d ago

Filler, it's like a 80 episodes show where only the first and last episodes actually matter

Inverno112d ago

It's been a problem with pretty much every modern AAA game all through last gen and this gen. God forbid you point it out tho because all these big games are masterpieces and people lose their minds if you criticize them. Death Stranding is a fetch quest fest, but people will die defending it cause it's a "masterpiece".
