Are you kidding me or what? You really think 40 hours is a disappointment?

40 hours is HUGE. Even MGS did take only 20 hours, if you took your time. Add to that the free roaming and side quests and you'll be on a rough 60 hours of gameplay.

And that, my friend, is awesome.

No, I didn't say it's a dissapointment. I'm saying that I wanted a lot of gameplay in the game and 40 hours is just enough to keep me satisfied... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

40 hours... It will be more around 100 hours for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I really like to free roam, slaughter cities (like in GTA http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) and with the parkour the free roaming stuff will be atleast 40 hours for me. And I'm not the fastest with main stories. Mostley because I play it the fun way, not the fastest way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

40 hours sounds just great to me. I'm used to a measly 10 hours (tops) from Splinter Cell and most other games I play, so this certainly will do the trick.

40hrs of gameplay! I havent ever played a game for that long, even final fantasy 7 took me 37.5 hrs of saved time to complete the first time, and in that I bred and raced chocobos for about 5 hrs and completed most side quests. If there is really 40hrs of gaming then Id be surprised (but extremely happy).
How good were the shots of the two new towns from 1.17-1.35mins?! I was starting to forget what I enjoyed about this game until I saw those new shots because Ubisoft have been almost torturing us by not releasing new stuff for so long! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yeah, I saw it. He's completely wrong, this will be far away from a "big disappointment".

Was a bit uncertain at first if I'd finish the 40 hours quickly, but I seriously won't. So no, definitely not a "big disappointment" - it's not even a disappointment at all.
This game will rule the world of gaming.

At 1:45 there is a woman in plain cloth and i think that might be altairs wife,also at 1:44 there is a bearded man that might be the leader of the assassins, or perhaps one of Altairs relatives because he has a hawk on his shoulder and the head of his cane looks like it has a hawks head on it.

good point JG...

BTW 40 hours is a good amount especially xince there seems to be alot to do after you finish, but Zelda(sry for comparing) had around 90(for the new ppl, took me half, 45) but its problem was that it didnt have replay value...hope assassins does better, by the looks of it, it will

There's a scientist at 1:52, if you play and pause over and over again as quickly as you can you'll see him.

EDIT: Here's an image, tried to put it up as fast as possible.

Wow. You'd think that, if they were trying to keep the sci-fi section under wraps, they wouldn't have put that in there (or at least blurred it or something). Still, really cool!

iAltair
07-06-2007, 11:41 AM
Exactly!
Although I think they tried to hid it at least a bit. Because when you play the vid, the changing of pictures of different characters speed up and this picture is the last one before you see the bigger one of Alta´r. And yes, it's still really awesome!

They don't want it to be a secret. I an interview (I have no idea which one, I've watched all I could find) Jade said there would be many hints about the story. But I really don't like the sci-fi part. The third crusade is cool and with their realistic settings it was really cool. The fact that it's fake (yeah, a videogame is always fake, but you know what I mean http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) makes it less cool to me.

iAltair
07-06-2007, 12:02 PM
I understand what you mean, but in another interview Jade says the creative producer - at least I think it was him - wanted everything in the game (healthbars and so on) to be explained why they're there. So it's not like "Yeah, I have a healthbar in real life, and that's how it is, anything else?"
Personally I think the futuristic touch makes it even more interesting. And I think it's cool how it explains why you can pause the game and get something to eat while you're playing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

great vid i did see like 2 people who dress like altair they are assassins well thats my guess.
and the gameplay is fine with me to because i usally spend more than 100 hours on a freeroaming game, hehehehe (i take my time) and make things up like oh can i climb that or can i do this and that, soo this game is going to keep me busy for more than 40 hours haha.
btw i dont know in what interview jade said it but she said something like this: most will not see it but we are giving allot of info away in interviews and trailers and stuff.

well i guess we just have to look carefully at the vids than you can see that they give allot away about the game... as people post here like pics of the people and stuff and that she hinted at the 40 hours of stuff you could see it in her face that see gave info away.

buuutt the vid is great more info about the game and i finally see the shadow of altair that he look like a bird hehehe

no i think she meant the main story. but she did say in an interview that sidequests wont be like standard quests, where you talk to a guy and he tells you what to do...blah blah blah...she said that most will be random events that occur as you make your way through the city.
