This is gonna be short, cause I want to get back to playing it. At 2:00 I got my greedy little hands on AC for the 360. This game, first of all is amazing. The free running and climbling are fun and easy for a halo addict like me to understand even though there a world away. The AI is actually decent, and while there a a few minor quirks they show an intelligance that reflects on how the would realistlically act. They don't take extreme risks (attacking you for throwing a beggar away) but they have no once let me get away with a public assassination of anyone, not just a guard or target. The fighting is seemless, the animations work extremly well, and the dueling isnt easy, at all. as long as your only fighting one or two guys, you'll be fine. But 6-7 guys will start to get difficult. The crowd is great, the sound sounds like your actually there, not like someone recorded it and pasted it in. I LOVE THIS GAME. Heres to a sequel!

p.s the free running is not as easy as it would seem. you still have to be facing the beam directly to run on it and chossing your direction can sometimes conflict with objects that would take a while to get over. Also, free running is absolutely nessacary. Hitting A repeadatley to jump over everything would absoluetly ruin this game in so many ways.

I want to love you forever for posting this, but I have a question to ask:

What version do you have (console) and is there a bad framerate issue?

AND, is it AWESOME!!!!!?

Thankyou so much Altair, I think we can all listen to IGN, but it takes a public player of the game to actually give a realistic overview of how the game stands. And as far as I can see, it looks awesome.

I run it on my PS3 on a normal SDTV and i have no problems at all, though it might have looked a bit fancier on a HDTV http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

tbh, i dont know what all the fuss is about when people say the AI is dumb, it kinda beats GTA:SA if u ask me =] i guess once reviewers got their hands on crysis, it kinda set a new standard for developers and now they are all comaring AI to crysis

yeah, the big reason I posted this was to convince everyone that the ign review was bull and to assure that european gamers not have any second doubts at the checkout line. Hopefully alot of people read the positive reviews, stay away from the ign reviews, and buy this game! The more sales ubi makes of this the more chance there is they will make a sequel and give us plenty of downloadadble content

How is the language? Do they use the "F" word?

Altair778
11-14-2007, 04:49 PM
I havnt heard them use it yet. if they do, it'll probably be drowned out in all the other curses and insults (some langauge)they are hurling at you. they do NOT use language alot, jsut when you start stabbing them and there lieing on the ground graoning

i absolutly and totally agree with u http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
i dont kno WAT IGN was thinking, but this game is definitly fantastic. ive been free running all over the city for lik 2hrs now and Altair's every actions seem so life like. The fighting seems a little easy but iv only faced 2-3 guys so far. Also the controls are just right, its realy easy to get use too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

well im not gona try to put the game down or anything, but you guys all do know that the review guy at IGN was probably a little too harsh but has had the game for quite a while. Most likely a couple weeks since the game went Gold, which means it started being copied on to cd's for us. So the IGN guy had way more time to play the game than just a couple of hours like Altair.



I was waiting a really long time for this game, but now im just considering renting it and buying Mass Effect since that for sure will last for a long time.

I agree totally, the game is amazing, I've been playing all freakin day haha...I have it for the PS3 and haven't run into any noticeable glitches or graphical issues (framerate etc)...

ill agree that the game is very enjoyable for WHAT IT IS. however for what it should have been, it's a huge dissapointment.

ps ign has infinitely more experience with unbiased reviews of video games than anyone in this forum, so if the majority of this board werent a bunch of butt hurt fanboys, you could see that the review is extremely valid and point on.

but I still enjoy the game a lot, just should have been so much better.

The guy at IGN that wrote the review is probably just a Mass Effect fanboy!

Man.... Mass Effect is just another knockoff shooter. How many shooter games do you see now-a-days? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gifWay too much in my opinion! I was interested in AC becuase of it's innovation.Instead of "Another" shooter, ubisoft actually came up with sumthing new. Also theyve been working on it for a hell-of-a-long time. I have to say, they did a damn good job. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
