Assassins Creed

Assassins Creed 3 [Review] - Loading Woes and Small Issues Steal the Show.

Overall Feeling: 

Assassins Creed 3 ends up feeling rushed and forced in a lot of areas. While the naval combat system is by far the shining star of this title, it feels like a lackluster ending to what I’ve felt is one of the most promising and interesting franchises in gaming.

The Pros: 

+Naval combat is so good it could be a stand alone game.

+Impressive graphics and cinematics make for solid presentation.

+A concise (theoretical) ending to the franchise.

+Beautiful and fun hand to hand combat.

The Cons: 

-Story is not friendly to casual franchise fans.

-Terrible loading design.

-Lackluster and shallow missions.

-User interface is needlessly cumbersome.

-New features meant to expand on past games are just tedious and meaningless.

I’ve had a rather love/hate relationship with the Assassins Creed franchise. For me, it seems to be a never-ending cycle where Ubisoft announces a game that sounds amazing on paper (and looks incredible in trailers!), but when I sit down to play it, a huge amount of small-issues add up to ruin the experience of what should have been an incredible game. Assassins Creed 3 (AC3) managed to once again follow this trend. I guess they get points for consistency.

Going to Fan Expo Toronto? Get Assassins Creed 3 For Free.

As a gaming website, we get a lot of promotional emails and press releases, but when one comes in claiming to be giving away Assassins Creed 3 just for showing up at Fan Expo in Toronto, I can't help but read it.

Ubisoft announces Assassin's Creed artbook

A few weeks ago Ubisoft, specifically the UbiWorkshop Twitter account, released a mysterious image that looked to be related to Assassin’s Creed.  Depicting an assassin dressed in similar garb to Altair and Ezio standing front of a pyramid, many assumed this image was a teaser for Assassin’s Creed 4. In fact some folks went absolutely bonkers at the prospect of some Egyptian based Assassin’s Creed action.

This morning what appears to be the first viral marketing for Assassins Creed 2 was seen on TeamXbox.com. The ad came in the form of banner advertisements, which linked to the AC2 website, changed from the AC logo to Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. The ad also mentioned the Animus which in case you forgot was the machine that was used to read the ancestral memories of the hero in the first Assassins Creed.
