There's little interest in Assassin's Creed Mirage, which doesn't bode well for games deviating from the open-world blueprint.
It's a DLC that was turned into a full game in a franchise that has had a game a year roughly for 20 years It's back to the ones people were already sick of before It's a Ubisoft game Many reasons to have no interest
I think the old school type of AC games better than the new ones, but mirage was very lazy you can tell the Devs did absolutely nothing to innovate on the old AC games it's basically worse than AC2 and 3 on a mechanical level with shinier graphics and world. They could have mixed up the combat made it more enjoyable but they just made it totally bare bone and that's just sad.. it basically Ubisoft all over That why rockstar are so much more successful they innovative and won't make a game unless its superior on nearly every level to its predecessor.
Old AC games were stale ever since the very first game lmao only reason two was good was ezio. Then the rest were all just bad games period. The newer ones like origins and etc were good but needed to cut down on bloat and make the game Linear and tight. They're fun for a bit the. Get repetitive
I would take AC1 to 3 black flag and unity over Valhalla and origins
It doesn't really matter if it is more linear than the last entries or not, by this point people are not tired of open world or linear Assassin's Creed games, they roll their eyes just from hearing the words "Assassin's Creed". They released 25 games (13 main line games) since the inception of the franchise 16 years ago, it's one fo the best examples of franchise fatigue in gaming, nothing they can really do about it but hold back a couple years (which for the Ubisoft suits must sound like I'm Martian or some shit).
I'm a bit of a mix of each myself, I loved black flag and I loved the one with ezio in, I also loved origin, I would have loved valhalla too but there was sooooo much bloat and I am a completionist and it drove me crazy how much stuff there was to collect and do that was pointless but I had to do it to feel like I finished the game. AC mirage, well I haven't even bothered with it, it seems like AC 1 DLC
@seanpitt23 Origin has one of the best story in AC.
1. I enjoy Ubisoft games 2. There hasn’t been a bad assassins creed game 3. That being said this is my least favorite ac game since odyssey
Just like COD. Another Copy and paste DLC
Just like Call of Duty lol 😆 DLC for both games, but one has legs with multiplayer.
"games deviating from the open-world blueprint" ?? Mirage is open world
yes, because Assassins Creed Mirage carries the entire gaming industry on its back. sarcasm intended.
Not really They basically turned DLC into a full on game, used the “it’s going to be like the old games” as an excuse to why it’s not as big as the main titles but even then still lied because there’s things in the game the guy can do which you could never do in the older games…like teleport to a target and stab them like the Blink ability in Dishonored. If they are going to go back to AC roots then actually do that
Exactly! That's what killed it for me, like I was hoping it would be back to a more grounded experience. Gathering Intel, planning your approach, and using that combined with your skill to pull off sweet assassinations and make smooth escapes. Instead I teleport kill like 4 guys and parkour with the most limited parkour mechanics in the entire franchise?. Funny cause I was waiting for them to f#ck it up somehow, and then they showed gameplay and I just laughed like "yup! There it is!"
Yeah they made the series super fantasy like so when they said it was going back to its roots I was all in. Obviously we can’t say the franchise was full on grounded with some of the things in the game or story plot elements but the point is it was more grounded than what it is now However using a character from the main games (Valhalla) was already a red flag, you don’t aim something towards the old school fans then make a character from your last main game the main lead in this one. Why? I want to play this to get away from the new games. Soon as I saw the abilities and teleporting shit I was out .
The warp kill was more stolen from Middle Earth the way it looked. But it also killed my buzz for the game, because I wanted a slow, grounded realistic type game like the original. They should just remake it at this point with AC Unity level art direction and that same Jesper Kyd soundtrack and I'd throw my money down!
I will buy the next RPG AC Im just not a fan of the stealth in video games its jut trial and error till you get it right.
I’m not a big stealth guy but I enjoyed some of the AC games , Metal Gear Solid and a couple other stealth games. But I hate the follow the guy for 10 minute missions. They are more tedious than anything. If they could make them suspenseful instead of annoying I wouldn’t mind them but they’re just annoying.
I hate escort missions I think in any game.
no its not. all it says is that people are sick of the same shit over and over. I mean.... how many assassins creeds can you release every year before ppl tune out. you actually want to leave people wanting to create desire. cramming release after release down everyones throat gets old. pretty sure that's why games like Alan Wake II are so well received. refreshing, innovative, different... there was only one other game and it was released years and years ago
Assassin's Creed in general is bad for gaming.
Why is it bad for gaming that people are bored of a series they pumped out too quickly ? If they slowed releases down and focused on quality ( story wise and less filler with some) I think AC would be in a better place. I thought about getting the game but I have so many games to play that I will buy it someday but I’m in no hurry to play another AC game. Since Black Flag I’ve lost interest. We all know another AC game is coming so these games have no anticipation from most people. That’s all on Ubisoft pumping out too many games.
Big fan of Assassin's Creed and have been since the first game. Ubisoft is at fault here and they are too gutless to admit it.
Actually what's bad for gaming is seeing DLCs turned into full priced games, but by all means carry on. And I'm not talking about the scale of the game or number of hours. But you can see when a short story was bloated into a full movie just like you can see when a DLC was bloated into a full game.
I stopped playing assassin creed after 2 and I'm huge gamer so this post is pointless.
This post is pointless because you gave up on a franchise from ps3? Or it’s pointless because of the comments you’re reading? I’m actually having a blast playing the game. What I’ve noticed is you don’t actually ever hear anyone talking positively about games too much anymore in the comments sections yet everyone keeps buying and playing them… Riddle me this… cripr baby why do you comment on pseudo neutral articles
That's what happens when your focus is on putting out regular AC games that just get more and more bloated and pushing more and more reasons to buy extra crap. It certainly doesn't help when that game is riddled with bugs and you have a progression blocking one that you put on the back burner for several months so people can't even finish the damn thing.
