Please tell me you've at least watched the ending of the game on Youtube or something. Even though the game is disappointing, I thought the ending was great
It bothered me too. He seemed to have a more middle eastern look to him. His cheekbones were really different, to the point where I kept seeing him and saying to myself "that's not really Desmond".
I have to say, the second attempt at the game did me the world of good. I avoided the annoying stuff and stuck to the main path. Only did one tower defence iin the whole of the game and didn't even have any master assassin's. All I needed to do was everytime I bought a property/killed a guard I had a look at the notoriety meter. If it was above half or so I would go find a town crier and bribe him, dropping my notoriety; meaning no den defence. Didn't touch the bombs. Did one of the Desmond's journey missions, gonna look them up online and see.
Then ending was something special alright.
Gonna watch Embers soon enough.
Just finished it today and like most people enjoyed it but thought it was probably one of the more weaker games in the series.
There was something niggling me throughout the tutorials and then about halfway through the game it hit me and I am surprised no one has touched on it yet. HORSES !!! Being able to ride around especially in Brotherhood where they were able to go into cities was always great fun and they were nowhere to be seen.
I would say the console would go out the window trying to get a horse around in that city, can't imagine it would have been faster than running everywhere,
Though they were a great improvement in AC:B.
I never bothered with the horses in Brotherhood. Much prefer getting up on rooftops, or even just running straight through the streets.
But yeah, the city in this game was too busy to have horses in it too
Just finished it today, confused and disappointed, Brotherhood was much better, will the story continue?
Yup, AC3 coming out this year, but this game was pretty much the end of Altair and Ezio's stories. Next game will have a new main character (plus Desmond)
I started this game back in November, played about half of it, then put it down.
Picked it up again this week and like yourself, it's almost a different game when you avoid the den defences. And with due respect to ubisoft, they give you the opportunity to avoid them.
I went in with a blank slate attitude and I'm loving it. I love the city, and I tend to stroll more than climb for some reason. The soundtrack has also grown on me, and I'm hearing subtle hints of the music from Brotherhood.
The Brotherhood development is definitely an improvement in that it takes longer for them to level up, and the den commander missions are nice at making the assassins you hire more 'human' than just cannon fodder you send out to Europe. A little repetitive, but hopefully they'll be improved upon in AC3.
Finally, and I thought I'd never say this....but I'm beginning to use the bombs. I'm actually enjoying them!! Mostly the distracting bombs and the caltrops are great for fleeing from mass groups. (yes, I could probably stop and fight, but there's a certain satisfaction to using them). Distracting guards at a den, sneaking in and silently taking out a commander (especially cowardly ones) feels really good.
Anyways, I think ACB was better (and AC2 obviously the best), but ACR is definitely much better than I first remembered, and I'm glad I put the time back into it.
Just finished it there after buying it at Christmas. This game really failed to hook me in compared to the previous games in the series.
I liked the change of setting but it felt like this whole game was pointless, like it added nothing to the overall story. A lot of people really seemed to like the ending here, to me it just seemed like
One thing that really annoyed me was that this game cheapened the ending of Brotherhood: but nope, no mention of any of that.
Final nail in the coffin for me is the game's online multiplayer. I loved Brotherhood's multiplayer, they could have just redone that exactly as it was and I would have been happy since its impossible to get games in Brotherhood now and has been for months. But no, Ubisoft decide to even mess this up by not letting you team up with friends, such a ridiculously dumb decision to make.
All this makes up for a very meh game. AC3 really needs to change up the formula.
Finished it there last week,didn't really enjoy the story,just didn't seem to go anywhere but on a side note I'm really enjoying the multiplayer
Anyone still playing that?
Anyway have the PS3 special edition and thought i was close to the end, so picked it up on steam last week on sale with a view to finishing it (and 3 and 4 after it). But it seems stupildy buggy on pc specificaly "the captain is a known coward" it pops up every single time there is any sort of load sequence, no matter where i am. I come out of the main hideout north of the map and it pops up then " come back tomorrow" even if i havent moved. So when i go and try to get the Dens the captain is never there at any of them.
This never happened on PS3 have reinstalled it twice and still the same. Did this happen anyone else on PC?
I can finish the game but can never get the dens on the southern part of the map.
Also control seems laggy with 360 pad wired, find countering to be hit or miss makes fighting jannisisisisisisiaries interesting.
