Hey guys, just wanted to see what some of our regulars thought of that game now that it's been out. Obviously i'll have spoilers in here but I'm talking about people like Lightrey, Jexx, Animuses, Chrono, Blind2Society and any others I may of missed.
I know some people were stressing when the reviews were coming in.
Anyway, this game totally surprised me. I'm one of those people that loved AC1 the most but this game is now my favourite in the franchise.
So, first I'd like to say I was super surprised that the Turkish armor was actually the special hidden armor of the game. Unless that preorder is something different. Either way I could care less as I got it at EB and that armor and mask look amazing.
This is the first time I actually enjoyed the look of all the armors in the game also. I think they all looked awesome and the hidden tomb one is amazing and now my fav outfit.
The hookblade? I thought that was an AMAZING addition. It just feels natural. The way it springs him upward is awesome.
The music? Amazing. You can tell they tried hard to mix it up from the Rome style they hard and I love it.
The assassin recruit missions really help you feel like a mentor. I read people were complaining about the Den defense. It wasn't THAT bad and it was almost completely optional besides the first time if you remember to bribe a herald every so often.
I didn't mess with the bombs to much but they are cool. I thought throwing a smoke bomb at my feet felt a bit clunky now though.
I did Desmonds sections almost right away and I thought they rocked. I don't see the complaints. They're optional for the story wanters anyway and I enjoyed it.
I don't know how I feel about Lucy or the way they handled 16. Did they want us to think he was going to try and steal Desmonds body or something? I totally thought that for a moment when he was freaking out. Then he grabbed him later haha.
The Sophia bits were awesome also.
I was hoping for a bit more with Altair and Maria after reading the book but I must remember the games are more canon than the book so that's the way it goes down. Although I would of LOVED to see buddies eyes bulge out and his face clawing and what not.
I love how they explained the apple thing also. The first civilization video was cool also even though they try to pull some heart strings with the woman and baby.
Anyway, there is more I want to say but I can't remember it as I'm just fresh off beating the game and was amazing by it. I wonder what AC3's gameplay will be like with his glowly armor. Heh.
Also I was so busy typing this while the credits rolled that I fear I missed something with the flashes like maybe 16 flashing or something. Anything?
