This is the Gametrailer's review of Assassin's Creed. There are some gameplay issues. The final compiled scores are as follows: Story: 9.7 Design: 9.0 Gameplay: 8.8 Presentation: 9.2 Overall: 9.1
Great score..I wasn't expecting ne thing other than greatness from this game....haha a couple more hours and it shall be mine...
but the story looks awesome....the gameplay looks good & different...
However, with two years hype I thought it would get a higher score. Any way, I'm still going to buy it and I'm quite sure it will satisfy me.
That is easily some of the worst AI I've ever seen in a game. It's just ridiculous. Such a shame on a high profile title. I'm still sold, but the AI is extremely disappointing. They can scale buildings and chase after you, but when you kill their buddy 1 foot away, they somehow didn't see it.
Imagine 10 guards standing around you. What would happen if they all attack at once? You would not stand a chance. I guess this is one of those decisions the developer was faced with. What´s more important? Realism or fun?
Other developers have done it. Look at Team Ninja with Ninja Gaiden. At times they have 15 enemies on screen at one time, all attacking you and acting realistic. If Team Ninja can do it, so can Ubisoft. For the sake of casual gamers, I'll agree 12 guards at once taking you on one at a time is fine. However, there is absolutely no excuse for the enemies acting that dumb when you assassinate their friend 1 foot away right in front of them. In the video he does it twice and the damn guard even says "tell me who killed you".
Ninja Gaiden is not realistic. I do agree on the bow down your head and everything is forgiven part!
AI is a bit dumb but anything is forgiven when is such a beautiful game =)
Given that the entire video was from the Xbox version, which by the way looked awesome, some slight screen tearing and frame rate drops on some parts (unless my codecs are playing up), but thats unavoidable on such a open world. Why no PS3 video!!!........ This leaves me with doubts over how this will run on the PS3, I`m hoping that they just didn`t have a copy to hand to review it, or maybe the PS3 version is so terribly choppy that they didn`t want to show it? I`m sure by the end of the day a comparison will have no doubt been conducted. AI however........ is Laughable at some points, maybe on a higher difficulty setting they won`t act like retarded puppets.
because I won an evening of gaming at Ubisoft in Denmark. I seriously could not tell the difference at all! They really look identical!
you can go to the ps3 version also. same score. but yeah they are pretty much the same.
Cheers for clearing that up, forgive me for still having some reservations though. ....I heard also Jade Raymond is going to include a Pair of her Skid Marked Knickers in a limited Edition version of Either Xbox or PS3 for one of her fans to enjoy :P.......
HAHAHAHA oh man bacon stripped undies, dude that's wrong and funny on so many levels, bubbles for you sir. Sad thing is I think there's a ton of people who'd want those :(
Um the AI stupidity is unforgivable. Seriously he stabbed the guy in the back WHILE the other guy was WATCHING hit "B" to "blend in" and the guy magically forgot what he JUST SAW. "Who's responsible for this?!" Wtf Ubi!? The combat I can forgive even though that's dumb too, 6 guys waiting for their friend to get stabbed in order to do something? There are action games from this gen and last gen where EVERYONE is trying to kick your ass simultaneously and you just have to deal with it and dispatch them. That's trivial in the face of amnesiac AI though. I thought the first Hitman game was bad but at least you had to have a disguise to fool the AI. In any case as though it sounds otherwise I'm still picking the game up, I'm just irritated that such things made it through with the tumultuous development cycle this game has had. This also makes me question the reviewers who gave it a 10.
With this talk about how good the civilian AI is you'd think the enemy would be up to par as well. But from the video it seems a bit TOO lackluster. And yes it does indeed raise questions on some sites who gave it a 10/10.
All the comments seemed fair and with this they obviously have the advatage of showing video to back it up. I did have to laugh at that "invisible mode" though.
I dont know about this game? the AI is stupid and the stealth mode is ridicolous. I think it might be a rent for me.
