Two videos showing the extend of the glitches. The webmaster is quite angry, beware.
lmao at first video: Ubisoft's Super Assassin Bros! edit: I think the animation system deserves praise, you have two Altairs and even though they have the same input, they fight and climb like two different people
Lol it actually seemed fun to play against that AI
on the last mission I all the sudden had a clone. I loved the game but the clone was totaly crazy. He did the same moves as me and woud hurt me if I got hit. I actually started to fight my clone when my assissin locked onto him. While talking to the king I found I couldent kill anything but my clone could. He stealth killed me while in the cut scene and I lost. I thought about trying to kill the king with the clone but he got stuck somewhere, and while talking to the king he walked off a cliff and I died. Finaly I loaded at the fight before talking to the king and my clone was gone. Ill miss my clone. althought that was weird I still love the game, and while that is a huge glitch, having a clone was kinda fun. I have the 360 version if you wana know. Framerate good, game good, clone killed me.
(In crazy Arnold voice) da cloneS da Clones
Lol wtf that's just poor
A delay is temporary but shoddy programming is forever. ..unless it gets patched. Those GTA4 and MGS4 delays are looking pretty good now huh? Edit: OMG I just watched the first video, [email protected] fighting Altairs. Killing himself reminded me of the time paradox in MGS3, I thought it was going to say that. This is shameful man, I can't believe that crap made it through QA.
*To developers* Take all the time you need. Well... maybe not TOO much time. :P
haha imagine if Puke Nukem Forever was released in 2001
I forgot to add the Duke Nukem Forever clause. That game is never coming out, that's why George Broussard always gets pissed whenever someone mentions it in a negative way. He knows the truth!! And if it does see the light of day it's gonna suck sooooo much but it's still going to sell a ton because everyone will want to see what 10 years of development time does. There's been 2 console generations during that time.
The more comprehensive and the more realistic the games get in the future, the more bugs there will be, which we have to get along with. Still, it's not right to rush the release of a game and let the gamers be the Alpha/Beta tester. The overall quality of the games has greatly improved, however the bugs need to be minimized to a mininum. Patches can't be a solution for console games in the long term. In case we need to wait a little bit longer to enjoy a game almost bug-free. Good example is GTA IV. The game will be very complex and extensive but I could imagine the release date will be pushed back further and further to prevent bugs in the final version.
Take Uncharted its at least as complex as Assassin's Creed, I haven't seen any major bugs like this. Publishers should stop rushing their games to the market.
darth it is not 0 chance of that in assasin cread there is a living city sandbox that makes a huge difference to uncharted which is a run and gun game like gears of war dont compare then plz as ac even tho lame is of a bigger scale.
Ive been playing AC quite a bit and havent seen any of those issues.
same here I haven't experienced ne probs other than repetitive missions and sometime's crappy A.I...maybe the problem is isolated..and being exaggerated as usual..!!. This is a good game , ppl need to stop dogging it until they've played it.. EDIT: WOW a disagree for stating my opinion / experience with the game..!!
I'm in this group. Just beat the game last night at 3 in the morning. 25 hour playthrough, but I got 100% of the memories, but not the additional memories. Haven't encountered a single lockup or freeze, or glitch, or bug. I'm on the PS3 version, framerate has been clean for me, the only graphical issue was tearing on the view point pans, and turning the camera as fast as I can. Good game I might add, very compelling story, but curiously unfun....Potential for good sequels if they improve the formula. Edit: wow at the disagrees. I'm really sorry I loved this game....
I guess people dont think I've played the game for a good amount of time? lol friggan internet nerds ...
ye I just finished the 7th Assassination(I H8 Water) and havnt experienced any of these problems, people really do have to play it instead of reviews and videos they just don't compare to when ur playin it
AC does not deserve all the sh*t it's getting. It's a very fun game, but it needs a little bit more depth. If the missions had a lot more variation AC could of won GOTY. (Before anyone disagrees with me check my XBL profile to see that I've actually played the game and that I'm not making this up)
I have not experienced any of these problems....this game doesnt deserve the amount of hate it is receiving...is really a good game that I usually dont like stealth type games but the only thing I hate about it is the modern time settings....but I guess it is a part of the story but give us a option too pass it up....
I have completed the game and now working on getting the rest of the achievements and have not seen any of these problems. I have seen a few glitches that don't bother me a ton but funny to see. I mad a video of them, take a look http://www.gametrailers.com...
I hade no issuse at all till this morning on the last mission I had a clone. Although strange, controling the clone was fun (except when he killed me durring a cutscene). I was able to load without a clone and It was normal after that. Even though I had a clone I still love this game. the clone can kill people when you cant, so I was wondering if I could use the clone to kill the king (durring the cutscene when the clone stealth killed me/ I killed myself).. Ill try it someday. Fighting the clone is hilarious except you cant win.
The only glitch I have experienced so far is the freezing glitch. Although it looked cool both times it happened, because in the first instance I was jumping from rooftop to rooftop, and stopped in midair. I could rotate the camera, and that was sweet. The second was during a leap of faith, and the same thing happened. It sucks that these exist, but it really isn't that big a deal. It has freezing. For the love of god, turn your console off, and start again. It's not like the game doesn't save when you enter a city, or sync with eagle vision....calm the hell down. It sucks, but it isn't a game killer.
Sad really, Id rather delay the game and get it right instead of rush it and get it wrong.
I mean, it hadn't already been delayed for a YEAR. Remember when this was supposed to be a ps3 LAUNCH title? I do, because I have had it paid off since 5 months BEFORE then. Who cares, it's a little freezing.
And yet still got 10/10's? Reviewers make absolutly no sense. Game isnt terrible end of story. Go play another shooter.
Freeze on me twice out of 8 hours play but what other people are experiancing that just plain sucks fix it now ubisoft
well it's not illegal for the animus to have glitches now is it?
lol put the blame on ANIMUS. Kind of like the glitches in Matrix
The whole idea of the Animus reminded me of the Matrix at first but it's not quite the same thing. Love the idea though. I suppose we can expect a sequel with the way AC ended...
fix the freezes atleast. You just disable the information thing on the right uppercorner on the mainmenu in ps3. Still,this game is sh!t!!!
interesting, if what you are saying is true, then that thing takes memory even when playing a game which it shouldn't.
did that and loged out of psn not a hiccup yet on the ps3 version no real issues yet (apx 12/h in) having lots of fun with the game and imo the ps3 version looks has good if not better than the 360 with less tearing and framerate issues. (my dad bought it played an hour or two on my box same tv has the ps3) Seems like the double altair and broken horse leg issues are unique to the 360 version while both are having freeze issues (unless you disable the afore mentioned settings on the ps3)
Wtf? Seriously, this game could have benefitted from a delay.
a 4 month delay if i remember right...the problem with multiplats is do you hold back the ps3 version..because obviously it has more problems...and lose the sales of people who own both consoles....damned if you do and damned if you dont.
should of delayed it again....for another 4 months. i never considered buying this game, but now its like i jus dn't want to think about doing so. besides my friend bought it for his 360 so i'll play his. rly? sounds to me the problems r mor on the 360 version.
reviewers unbiased and don't swim in the hype machine? no, never! [/endsarcasm]
So any word yet if the freezing, restarting issues are related to 2.0 or Ubi? (do they happen on the 360?) First time ever I've had to turn off the power from he back of the PS3, I'm scared to turn ass creed back on :o) I must admit, the dual Ailtar was kind of cool. Could be an neat perk later in the game, well as long as number 2 couldn't cause damage to you.
you can quit the game using the home button on the ps3 but the machine will still reboot....
Finished the game today, on PS3, and haven't had the clone glitch at all. Just wondering if any PS3 gamer out there has seen the clone thing when playing or is that just a 360 issue? Would be odd if it was.
I don't know how those guys at Ripten site ranked Ubisoft as better devs. than Square Enix and Sega! Mechanically, most Ubi's games are sh1t. and LMAO @ the vids.
At least those who still somehow believe the bugs are isolated to the PS3 version will get a large dose of reality. That first video was horrific.
I haven't seen any glitches in the game when I was playing it (PS3 version), it's only frozen on me a few times, but no glitches, no framerate drops, only slight v-sync issues on the tallest of the view points. So it's been a pretty smooth ride for me on the PS3 but maybe that's because I haven't sat there solidly for hours and hours to complete the game like I know many do... Had so much fun taking the hordes out at the end using the small blade, looks so much more assassiny lol
wow...that's terrible, I really wanted this game and if that sh1t is seriously happening I won't...sigh... lame I want to scale buildings!!
It's a good game despite the bugs, you should check it out still. At least gamefly it or something.
from my own experience, it seems like the problem is being exaggerated. I have not seen ANYTHING like what was posted here, nor have I had lockups. The game is great.
i was so hyped for this game since it first appeared at E3 '06. i still want to play it, but i'll most likely rent it.
The game is great GET IT! Atleast rent it! Don't believe the lies! IGN and 1UP are full of sh*t, or atleast the people who reviewed AC for IGN and 1UP are full of sh*t.
and it wasnt faked because he got acheivment points for doing that glitch....weird.
yeah, i don't go by review scores or reviews much. i just can't afford to buy every game so i'll rent AC and play it first and if i like it i'll definitely buy it. reviews/reviewers are broken.
@Daxx: Video streams are lies? It certainly aren't photoshoped or manipulated. I liked how it looked back then, but when they pulled off the showing at E07, and found it to be released so 'early' as a few months away, I got sceptical to it. These videos shows how immature the code is.
honestly to badmouth a game in its entirety for two glitches (only one of which i would consider more than minor) is a bit biased.
This never would have happened on the ps2 or xbox. Giving the developers the ability and leniency of updates has just made them lax in the testing of the games, knowing that they can ship and fix "IF" and when the money comes in...
Damn... ubisoft is catching so much heat with this game... that I'm sure.. the group or people involved in this game will probably be all fired... this is a perfect example of what hype can do to games... the game shouldn't be released until all these bugs were fixed... but people are less forgiving about problems like this one... when they wait for a game like most people were waiting for this one. I remember when this game was shown... at E3... the dead guy fliying on the air bug... and they said.. the final game will not have those gliches?... this game was too big for the team assigned to make this game... games like this one... only developers like Team Ninja, Bungie, Kojima, Square and others can deliver...
...and Bioware. I agree that Ubi is catching major heat & heads will roll for it. Hopefully there will be an AC2 & it will be bug free. It's a shame, climbing, graphics, & combat are great. Too many negatives overshadow some innovative ideas.
thank god that i bought uncharted instead of AC hehe i was gonna wait about 2 weeks before i was gonna buy it to see some review from ppl... well it seems like i will be waiting a whole lot longer to play this game maybe ill just rent it .
it froze on me again today thats twice, just cause some people havent had any problems a lot more have on 360 and ps3 ubi really do need to sort this out as its a really good game, when you can get to play the thing.
You should have just delayed the game and got everything perfect. The glitches are inexcusible. However, AC is still a GOOD game but it should have been OUTSTANDING. Bring on AC2.
You don't pay $60 for glitches and freezing, you pay it for a flawless gaming experience. Ubisoft is getting a lot of heat from both PS3 and Xbox 360 owners, and rightfully so. If so many other games can run perfectly well on these platforms, why not Assassins Creed?
Agreed. I remember Splinter Cell: Double agent for PC. The game was riddled with bugs and glitches (I was never able to finish the game because it would freeze right at the end, everytime) and never was a patch made for all that sh*t. QA probably had all those glitches found before the release of AC, but Ubi decided to release the game anyways. I have yet to see anything on mine. But why some users have problems and some don't? they're consoles, they're all made the same and have all the same hardware, unlike PCs. Which is why PC usually have patches made, they're too different...
This retarded, how can Ubisoft, one of the most productive devs screw up so bad?! It's totally inexcusable!
those vidoes seem to be taken from the 360 version
Top video is 360, bottom is PS3.. he points that out in the text.
The glitch show something to look forward to I suppose for AC2....MP coop. lol
I've seen worse bugs on GTA and I don't remember anyone saying we shouldn't play GTA because of them. Sure, this is a UBISOFT game, it can't get much better than what it is. This is western-made... japanese games have significantly less bugs because they (still) run the business. The game is fine and it is worth playing. If a bug appears, reset the console and give it another try, why not? They had to meet a deadline and so they rushed the release. Of course, true video game artists don't rush a damn thing... but, again, this is UBISOFT! C'mon guys, it's a great game coming from that studio!
I rememeber in los santos of san andreas i drove into a building then fell through the ground. I fell through white space for a long time then finally ended up above san andreas.
I don't know why I hate this sexy girl called Raymond
Well I'm having a blast wit it on 360, this firmware BS is really eatin at your blackbox
im about 8 hours into assasins and quite honestly i think its an amazing experience..i mean never has stealth gameplay been this good and rewarding,and open ended..simply put the action,gameplay and fun of jumping around and flying are unmatched by any game ever..now there are a few issues,like repetitive missions,and having to listen to my character talk,but all in all its one of the coolest looking and most fun games ive played this year..how this game scores below 8.5s by anyone is alarming..id even question how these so called reviewers play games they review...a great game,and must own experience,the new definition of stealth..has a lot of games wrapped in one including prince of persia,splinter cell,tenchu,ico and schenmue...pick this game up and enjoy it...9/10 in my book
I believe people had way too high of expectations for this game. I dont follow games that much before they came out but Id say this game far exceded mine. You can skip most of the repetitive parts and can choose stealth or all out killing. I love the combat system and the climbing/running is the most natural/BADASS of any game like this ever (OK THERE ARE NO GAMES LIKE THIS EVER). Each assassination is different and you can do it different ways. Even though I had a clone glitch, I found my way around it, and it was fun to mess around with the clone.
