Spong Gives Assassin's Creed 7.9/10

Overall, Assassin's Creed is both a good game and a mild disappointment. It deserves gamers attention because it's genuinely different and hugely fun. The mere fact that it is trying to do something unique is a bold and brave move by Jade Raymond and her team at Ubisoft, Montreal. However, the game was always going to find it hard to live up to the hype-machine that Ubi has been building around it since E3 last year. That was when Spong sat in the Convention Centre bar with a bunch of other games journos after seeing the initial demo of the game in a stunned silence. At the time many of them thought that they were seeing what the future of (back then) next-gen gaming had to offer. They have been slightly cheated in that regard. Only slightly, though.

The story is too old to be commented.

is it just me or is this game getting low reviews

Baba19064933d ago

well its not low but no perfect scores. i think 7-9 is still quite good.

think ill still rent it, im not a fan of reviews, i like to base games on what i think of them not others! still, a shame.

LOL this is funny. First R&C got mostly high scores all around, but Gamespot gave it a 7.5 or something. Now AC is getting average scores but Gamespot gives it a 9. Interesting.

2 different reviewers from Gamespot did the reviews, just cause its the same website, doesnt mean they all share the same brain. The guy that reviewed R&C has been primarily a Sports game reviewer which added fuel to the fire that he was an idiot. I don't know much about the reviewer that did Assassins Creed, but he has a completely different view of the framerates issues, so only way to know is to play it for yourself.
