Re: The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

You made me remember the animations of the counters, they were one of the greatest things of this game.

And yeah Ravenous, just practice, is not that hard. I'm average player at most and was able to counter with the three weapons.

Re: The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

As part of UbiSoft week, this game is available for the PC from Steam for $9.99, today only.

For that price, I'll try it!

Re: The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

I picked this up for PS3 last week during Gamestop's B2G1 sale on used games. I got it with Burnout Paradise (very fun) and Sonic Chronicles (DS) for about $43 after tax. The way I see it, I got a birthday gift for my son for $20 and paid $10 each for AC and Burnout.

Anyway, I've only put the disk in long enough to download the patch, and it's on my backlog behind Bioshock and Prince of Persia. Hopefully it's worth $10.

Re: The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

Im still playing this and taking my sweet as time!

I love the game and am just on my 4th Assassin. I like walking around without the map do do every task (I just use it when I have that final one or 2). I have learend lots of counters and have gotten good at it. Whenever traveling I stop at the marching soldiers and fight. I found a base camp with about 50 dudes camped and took em all on. I love this game.

Re: The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

I played it last year and played through it several times. I may tackle it again to get the flag achievements. Definitely one of my favorite games on the 360.

I can't remember the last time a game made me this angry. Between the beggars and being singled out by the mentally challenged in the middle of missions to the fact that my dude only responds occasionally to what I want him to do, I was ready to pull this disc out and set it on fire.

And yeah, I gave it plenty of time. I think I'd just finished my fourth or fifth assassination. I just couldn't take it anymore and put it up for sale.

Beautiful game, and I love the setting/story, but the combat system is complete shit. Still, I probably would have stuck with it, if they'd just let me kill a beggar or a crazy person every now and then.

Oh, you most certainly can. That's the only way the game was tolerable to me. Have your hidden blade equipped and when they get close you'll see "Assassinate" light up on the HUD. You can kill them or throw them out of the way with a tackle - either way you lose a bar of sync but you'll feel much better

I always cleared an area of beggars and crazies before an interrogation or assassinate mission.

Hmm... I didn't have any trouble. You did catch on to the fact that the combat is rhythm-based, right?

I probably misspoke. Once I'm fighting, I'm fine, as long as I don't have more than 10 or so to fight. Though I do sometimes find myself locked on to the wrong guy, or I'll accidently hit L1 and end up walking casually through an ass-whooping.

My frustration is more about the times that I don't want to fight, but Altier does something random to draw attention to himself. He's too sticky when running and is trying to run up every column he comes within 5 feet of. He's quirky about climbing too. I don't know how many times I said something like "C'mon, there's a fucking handhold RIGHT THERE!" I also love it during the assassinations, when you're blended with the scholars and you get out to go for the kill. You hit X to run to your target and hit him from behind, and you get sucked back into the scholars.

Maybe it's me, but Altier just doesn't seem to want to do what I want him to do about 15% of the time, and it's just grating as hell.

It's a shame, really, because the things the game does well, it does spectacularly well. I'll be running across rooftops thinking "this is brilliant", or I'll get a leaping blade kill and feel like a badass, but its quirkiness irrated me more than any game has in a long time.

Last night I moved on to Fallout 3, which is a much better fit for me.

Re: The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

I'm giving this game one more shot. On my 4th Assassination. The repetitivness does bother me but what really bugs me is the guards. The smallest things seem to set them off. Running through the streets or getting on a horse and gallop and that alerts them?! The constant red beeping sound is also crazy annoying.

Re: The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

If the gameplay bothers you, the only reason to play through is for the storyline (which you can just read up on). You'll find that almost all the things that people complained about in this game were fixed in Assassin's Creed 2 and perfected in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.

You'll be doing plenty of that (along with a whole lot more) in AC2, Bro & Rev.

Seriously, you'll be doing yourself a favor by just quitting the first one and moving on.
