Despite being the third Assassin's Creed game in three years, Ubisoft says it's targeting 90-plus review scores for 2011's Revelations.
I doubt this game will have a hard time getting there. People love AC games. Especially if they give us some answers about the storyline, it could score higher than ever before.
Actually 2 of the 3 version of Brotherhood averaged less then a 90. http://www.metacritic.com/s... 360- 89 PC-89 PS3-90
AC feels almost like a natural Sony brand game, that and the exclusives it gets with it.
That's only because some platform exclusive publications (PC Gamer, Xbox World etc.) might have though less of the game than others, because it's the exact same game across the three platforms.
I can tell you now the AC series is my most played series ever & thats no joke. I have been addicted to the series since release & I want more. I cannot wait for Revelations to be released.
Pfft, good luck Ubigreedy. If they keep releasing yearly iterations like this with branch of stories no one cares about, including a main character more than 3 times who people are tired of (Ezio is 50 in this game, wtf?), and if they DARE make another cliff hanger ending - I doubt they'll keeping getting generous reviews.
ahh stfu. Firstly Ezio's only been in 2 games so far. Secondly, this game features all three characters as main characters. Altair and Desmond will also have big roles in the story and gameplay. Thirdly, one reason why people felt a bit bored was because the setting was still in Italy. This time it's in Turkey/Ottoman Empire specifically in Istanbul/Constantinople. Just because you're not interested in the story, it doesn't mean others aren't. And what's wrong with Ezio being 50 years old? Humans do age you know. As for cliffhanger ending. There will most likely be another. They aren't going to conclude the story with this game. There will definitely be an Assassin's Creed III. And the numbered iterations are numbered because of the new character. Yes, this can be looked at as "milking" since it's coming out yearly however the milk tastes good. And I don't mind if a top quality game comes out every year.
lol, Eamon must still buy Assassins Creed games every year. I'm so sorry...
I buy AC games each year and I am without shame :-) I just wait for the $30-40 price range because Ubi' games usually get there with a sale or some such after a few months :-) As much as I'm astounded that Ubi' is pimping out a third AC game in three years so long as it maintains a level of quality consistent with AC:B I'm game. I absolutely love the platforming, historical atmosphere, historical fiction, and illuminati / New World Order references that the game offers.
it will for sure get 90 plus reviews assassin creed has been getting better and better everytime they release it
nah i highly doubt that LOL
It seems kind of a weird thing to say. Shouldn't EVERY developer target 90-plus ratings? If they're not, it shows they're either lazy or know that their game will suck.
FALSE anything in the 70's,80's,90's is good and worth playing
You misunderstood me. I was saying that every developer should ATTEMPT to make a game that will get 90-plus ratings. In other words, they should try to make the best game they possibly can by keeping "high-quality" in mind.
Lolz WTF? He's talking about rating, not about gaming eras.
@rjdofu He thought I meant that games that score below 90 (70s - 80s) aren't worth playing, but I meant that developers should *aim* for those 90+ scores in the first place.
@Disagree: It's a joke but whatever... @MidnytRain: exactly... @stealth500k: but i don't see any reason why a developer should aim for a goal lower than 90.
Actually EA targets a 80+ rating on Metacritic. That is there stated goal is to have as many 80+ games as possible. So no most games should not target a 90+ rating because it is unrealistic.
yeah thats what I thought he meant.
Your target should be making the best game you can, not trying to please reviewers. If you make a great game the scores will reflect that.
I love the series and they have made improvements with each game that comes out. i have high hopes this next one will do well.
I played the last AC, in fact i played all 3. I dont like some of the things they implemented in the last AC, the 100% sync and replaying missions was boring not to mention the horrible QA, that trophy glitch pissed me off, so much so that im just going to rent the next AC instead of buying it.
um shouldn't you be targeting that with every game you make?
i wouldn't give this a review whats the point it is exactly like brotherhood? i want to see the actual next game of the franchise not the milking..
Oh i see you played the game to know its exactly like Brotherhood. Could you please tell me how it ends?
no because like the past assassins creed games they have all been the same please tell me whats different between them all but they feature different characters smart arse ? they have all done the same thing
ooooh i know because i played it lol it was EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @ grey fox they had different stories
Greyfoxxxxx, go away. You're just embarrassing yourself.
The common perception is that Brotherhood and Revelations aren't true installment because they aren't numbered, when in fact they're as much true installments as AC1 and 2 are. I felt the same way as you when this was first announced, but I think it's important to retain the likes of Ezio and Altair rather than moving to a totally different time period with another random hooded assassin. They're moving it to a new setting across two time periods as well, which is interesting.
Agreed. People don't seem to understand that just because the title doesn't end with a number, it doesn't make it a spin-off. Brotherhood was a direct sequel to AC2 as AC2 was a direct sequel to AC1. Ubisoft has stated that the reason why they stopped numbering is because it focuses on the same character. When there is a new character, we'll see Assassin's Creed III as the title.
i dont know why people are complaining about how the ac games are coming out quicker and quicker the gameplay is always improved the story is consistently awesome with great endings all these are key for games worth being bought
To me the AC brand is overrated. I can't seem to finish the games because it gets really repetitive and boring. Plus, the game is way to easy!
People arent playing the game for a challenge, if they were, they would play Demon Souls instead. Sure I'll admit, the combat could be imporved on. however its the story and rich open world experience of parkour and stealth killing which is why people keep coming back. That, and because it includes new features everytime, as well as a new MP mode which isnt another generic FPS or TPS
AC series - a bunch of average games. In real scale: 5-6/10 In today's reviewers scale: 7-8/10 Bribed reviewers say its 9-10/10
