Assassin's Creed: Perfect 10/10 in GamesRadar Review

From GamesRadar's review:
"With its riveting story, beautiful visuals and surprisingly lifelike world, Assassin's Creed is an incredibly deep, enjoyable game that kept us addicted from beginning to bizarre end. It's bogged down by a lot of monotonous repetition and a fighting system that's sure to frustrate hack-and-slash fans, but neither of those things really diminished our enjoyment of the game, and both were far outweighed by the thrill of tearing around its enormous cities and carefully planning spectacular assassinations. It might not be for everyone, but playing through Assassin's Creed still stands as one of the most outstanding gaming experiences of 2007."

Awesome. Kudos to GamesRadar for the great review and score. Assassins IS 10/10. God, I can't wait anymore.

Game on.

I really disagree with a 10/10 score. Don't get me wrong - I can't wait for AC; but if a game is "bogged down with a lot of monotonous repitition", then surely it isn't a perfect game.

I find that game reviewers are far too liberal with handing out perfect scores. It's incredibly misleading, and should be so hard to attain that only once or every 1-2 years, a truly deserving game gets the perfect score.

Guitar Hero 3, Call of Duty 4, Assassin's Creed, Super Mario Galaxy... The list of perfect scores goes on and on and on...

What's your deal man? It seems like you always take such a strong stance on games before you've even played them or they've been released. You're either praising games, using phrases like, "I LOVE..." or you're hating on game, using phrases like, "I HATE..."

What's up with that? It's not like you have any personal experience with the games to be founding these statements on. It's like you've made an emotional investment in the game before you've even played the thing.

You praise reviewers for giving high scores to games you 'love' (despite the fact that you've never seen the game in person, or played the game yourself) and you condemn them for giving bad scores to games you 'love' (again, despite your lack of personal experience with the game).

I don't get it.

You were rambling on and on about how Bioshock deserves a 10/10 before the game was even released! Same with this game. Same with lots of games! And you haven't even PLAYED them yet!

...just something I noticed. I don't see how someone can hold such strong opinions of something they have absolutely zero personal experience with.

Very few games truly deserve a 10/10. I'm glad you're not a reviewer, because from the sounds of things, you pre-judge everything.

MK_Red4088d ago

Who said I'm don't know about these games or haven't seen them? The thing is, working for a local game magazine has some advantages and the best one IMO is the when you get to see and try some of the hottest upcoming games.

If you had seen or played BioShock at E3, you would have praised it and loved it as much as I do and did before it came out and the final game was 10/10 worthy IMO.

The same goes for Assassin's I can't even begin to descirbe how much effort is put into this game and how fun it is. I'm not a big industry insider but do get my share of fun and stuff :)

Also, when I praise games like BioShock and Mass Effect, it is because I've seen previous works of their devs and in case of those 2 games, all previous works have been AAA games. Irrational (Former...) made excellent SWAT4, Tribes: Vengence and Freedom Force. All AAA games and I don't even need to mentioned BioShock's main designer has worked on classics like System Shock 2 and Thief.
Mass Effect's BioWare has biggest number of games in the best RPGs of all time list. Baldur's Gate 2 is basically considered by some one of the top 3 best RPGs ever created (I prefer Black Isle's Fallout 1&2). BioWare's Neverwinter Nights also won every possible award its year. Same goes for KOTOR. Even Jade Empire was a great game and got 9.9/10 from IGN. I even loved BioWare's non-RGP game MDK2.
So when I see those games, try them and see their history, I have more than enough reasons to praise them and love them so madly.

As for the ones that I hate, WiiFit is on top of my hate list and I have good reason. You REALLY need to try it. It was by far the farthest and most boring experience me or any of my friends and co-workers had in our life time and I have seen many crappy games since Atari 64 and NES... . Even our old and Nintendo loving editor-in-chief was seriously disappointed after he tried WiiFit in a behind closed doors session.

Yes, I do love and hate some games before their are out but I have pretty good reasons. Some times my reasons have been wrong and I made mistakes but I usally only talk about stuff that I've seen and checked.

Sony arrogantly didn't secure this game and allowed Microsoft to tap in. Great news for gamers in general, but this is just a reminder of Sony's flawed decision making this generation and with the lack of AAA games it's had recently, this would have been a welcome additional to the Exclusivity ranks.

jackdoe4088d ago

Sounds like someone feels a burn of a certain US demo. Anyway, Sony did commit a big fubar by not securing this title as at least a timed exclusive.

mesh14088d ago

stop mixxing project assasins to assasins cred as they were totaly defferent games with defferent nams sony never had this gam as exclusive only to blind fanbos that think a conept game is a real game.

ThaGeNeCySt4088d ago (Edited 4088d ago )

wow... and the great reviews keep pouring in.... this is where my credit card begins it's surge into everlasting debt... COD4.. Assassin's Creed... Mass Effect... Kane & Lynch.... SMH!!!! Imagine if I had the PS3.. i'd have to add Uncharted & Ratchet to that list... omg

Skerj please don't comment, i cringe anytime I see your avatar... I HATE GRAND L. BUSH

MK_Red4088d ago

Agreed. I'm already broke yet haven't even bought PS3 and Wii to worry about their games (Though I'm getting Wii sooner because of Zack & Wiki and Super Mario Galaxy).

Skerj4088d ago (Edited 4088d ago )

:D How'd you know I was gonna appear here? One week left, the anticipation is agonizing. I've worked it out to purchasing 1 game a week at the rate of 10 bucks aside per day. ..and on the 7th day I rest. I'm changing the avatar as soon as I find something more awesome and fear inducing as Balrog/Grand L Bush from the SF movie.

why does god hate gamers this november? subject us to all these great games...make us pick and choose what we wanna spend money on...make us broke....have our women hate us cuz we game and not spend money on them....::angrily fists pumps at the heavens::

MK_Red4088d ago

Good one.
I actually think God loves us but sadly or thankfully all our prayers for great games in years were answered in one single month. Seriously, number of true AAA games in this month is more than all AAA games of last few years combined.
Assassin's Creed, Super Mario Galaxy, Zack & Wiki, COD4, BioShock, Orange Box, UT3, Uncharted... it's an ambush :)

You guys know that this game wasn't announced for the ps3 first it was announced for the xbox 360 in 2005 a year before the announcement on the ps3. It was first announced as project assassin for the xbox 360 so it was already in development for the xbox 360.

ThaGeNeCySt4088d ago

I thought it was announced as PS3 exclusive when it was under the name Project Assassin
