No kidding. You'd think this was a Gamespot review of a PS3 game or something.

Let my start by saying this was a game I really liked...a must play title. I could not put my controller down till I finished the game... What I did not like about it, in addition to the items in the review (I played the 360 version): *) Unskippable dialogs...the dialogs are *long* and you can not just skip over them...that makes for a game that is unbearable to replay...I could deal with the dialogs the first time, when replaying I do not want to spend that much time waiting for them. Replay value: D *) The ending. Not spoiling it for people, I just think I deserved a better ending than the one the game presents. *) Lame achievements. Collecting hundreds of flags spread throughout the cities ? Give me a break...they're not even as addictive as Crackdown orbs...those at least gave you a power up... But, like I said before, the game was definitely worth playing (once)...animations are *amazing* and the excitement of the assassin's chase is far out...I also liked the side story...and hey, this has to be the best game explaining why your "world" is constrained and does not allow you to go out the map... Definitely a late review though...;-)

Gentleman...I realize the game didn't just street but were not talking about a weekly comic book here. I only received the game from the good people at UBIsoft a couple of weeks ago, which was very nice of them, and rather than tell them to take their game and go jump in the lake, I thought I'd do an honest, thoughtful review. That ok?

Why don't you tell the good people at UBISOFT to not give you the game so late so you aren't 4 months late on the review? You should've asked for the DS version and reviewed that instead, that's more recent than the one you talked about.

Why don't you tell the good people at UBISOFT to not give you the game so late so you aren't 4 months late on the review? Unbelievable....

Why is that unbelievable? Wouldn't the fact that they supply you with the game earlier lead to an earlier review? I mean they supply the game to many people way earlier than a couple of weeks ago than you say they did to you. You should ask for the same treatment others get no?

People, lay off. Seriously, the game is STILL for sale and is STILL relatively new. There are plenty of people (like me) who haven't touched it and are interested in someone like Tim's opinion. Games are not like comic books - heck, they even aren't like movies. Most players don't buy everything that comes out the first month of release. There are MANY gamers, like me, who wait until the game drops to half price. You can buy more games for less money that way. I'm currently waiting on Gears of War to drop to under $30 before I try that. ---- As for this game, I keep hearing good things about it and your review sounds good, Tim, but can you answer this question for me - Considering that I don't like playing the bad guy (and, I don't care how you spin it, an assassin is about as textbook a definition you an get for bad guy) AND I don't like stealth games like Splinter Cell - is there any reason I would still enjoy this game?
tjanson 3/26/2008 9:29:23 AM
Merin...thanks for coming to my defense :-) As to your question, that's a tough one. You're right, no matter how you spin it assassins are not good guys. On top of that, some of your targets are not necessarily bad guys. I would not say it's as bad as Splinter Cell in terms of the stealth requirements. As mentioned, you can just sort of burst in and try and kill your target although that does make it tougher. Still, I think the look and feel of the game is so incredible. The ability to move around the vast cities and interract with almost everything is a big selling point. Hey if you're not sure then give it a weekend rent or, like you said, wait a bit longer for the price drop.

Merin, there is a difference between touching the game and reading a review for it. I fail to see how waiting to buy the game when it's price drops has to do with someone writing a review for it or someone reading a review. I see your point about Assasin's Creed being a game and not everyone buys every game out there, but Assasin's Creed was/is a big title. I can see that take on Ubisoft's Lost, that isn't as important in the gaming world as Assasin's Creed, but Assasin's was a big deal and was hyped back in November. My question to you is this, why can't Ubisoft get this guy the games on a timely fashion or why won't he ask for them earlier?
