I watched the E3 gameplay today for like the 30 time and I stopped the video right when the cutscene with Yusuf is over and ezio walks through the market. then I realised how it remind me the market in Damascus (or maybe acre) when you need to assassinate two targets for information. that's when I thought how much I'm going to like this game. everyone until now has their favorite game - AC1 or AC2 (even I most admit - AC:B was kind of a huge expansion with multiplayer). some liked ac1 because of the athmosphere of the assassin order and the arab cities and also because Altair didn't have gadgets to help him - it was simply pure assassinations. some people loved AC2 more because they liked Italy and the new tricks and gadgets that Ezio had, without even remind that Ezio is a character that you can easily love in seconds. I think that Revelations will combine all of this into one awesome game with great scenes and story. I think now that Ezio is the Mentor he will try to be more altair-like and try to learn how to be cold-blooded assassin, but ofcours there will be things that will help him to remmember who is the real Ezio like Sofia for example. I will be happy to hear what you want to see in the game that will have a bit of both the games.

...is it wrong that brotherhood is my favorite out of the 3 games?

I felt that with each game the series got better and better.

The only thing that excites me about ACR is the story, and how they plan to reveal lots of stuff.
Fortunately, I don't have to buy the game to witness the story (YouTube ftw!), so if I absolutely need to play the game I could always get it long after the release.
When I think about it, I'm better off not getting it, especially when it looks like I won't enjoy it anyway.

I think that Revelations will combine the wonderful Middle Eastern feel with the story of AC2 along with gameplay of AC Brotherhood.

The only thing that is pending is the story, which I am worried about.

You're that shocking. I'm going to play that game and then replay that game at least 2 more times, probably more. Just like I did ACI, ACII and ACB.

That's just sick...

How can you not be excited for what could very well be the best game in the series.

Even IF it was a crappy rehash of every gameplay mechanic and glitch in Brotherhood, it would still be super fun to play. What with all they ARE giving us, and all the things that they're balancing and fixing and changing, you're going ot miss out on what could be the most varied and possibly the best Assassin's Creed game ever. And watching a walkthrough cheapens the experience to no end.

I agree on the walkthrough part there. I mean you get a game for the experience not just for the hell of it. Me personally I want to play through whatever long and interesting puzzles await Desmond and be greeting by something that leaves my jaw open (looking at you subject 16). I mean the video in ACII, then meeting him (so to speak)in Brotherhood , you never see those coming. Whatever awaits us this time should top all the other surprises we've had.

The bottom line is: I spent my time defending ACB (before release), and in the end I found that it was not the gleaming jewel I was expecting, and I was disappointed. Now it is happening again, I will not be disappointed, however I'm seeing people who are defending a game they have not played like I did.
Be careful, nothing will ever live up to the expectations of an exited mind.
P.S.
If the game 2, months after release, is said to be magnificent like AC1 and 2 and is deep, complex and challenging, then I will buy the game preowned.
P.P.S.
Mikatsuki95 is correct with the whole ''get for the experience not just for the hell of it'' thing. Not everyone has the money for every single thing that catches their fancy. This may go over some child's head but ACR seems to be too low quality for my fancy. I'm only still on these forums so I can hope for some kind of amazing thing to re ignite that passion I had for the series's newest game, but at the same time I hope I wont be sucked back into the sadness of it not being good.
Hope that clarifies things.

Well, I guess not everyone can like ACB like I do. Too bad, I (apparently like most people if you look at the sales) thought it was a great game.

It was, but it wasn't the game I came to expect from this series. It felt more like Uncharted than Assassin's Creed (which explains the sales).

Going back and looking at AC2, it feels a lot more rushed and unpolished compared to AC1 than Brotherhood does to AC2. I went into brotherhood not expecting anything, and I loved it because it gave me such grand expectations. I think that when you learn to not get too hyped up for games, and look at everything critically, you'll enjoy them a lot more.

Brotherhood was very fun, but it wasn't perfect, and I still think AC2 was a better game.

But I know from my experience with brotherhood exactly how much they improved in one year, and now that they have a larger team and a more effecient pipeline to get the game done, I feel a lot more confident in how good Revelations will be than I was in Brotherhood. Not to mention that they've been a lot more open on what will be in the game, and what is there sounds a lot more substantial than any previous AC, not to mention actual mechanics upgrades for several important aspects, such as bombs, freerunning, and eagle vision. (now sense)

Quite honestly, the only AC that has ever really let me down is the first one. It had a very solid basic mechanics system, but there was hardly anything else in the game, and the game still found ways to make you have to go do very little, and have it take a very long time. The assassinations in all honestly only had a few that allowed for true creativity, without having to be incredibly patient or use glitches or trial and error like the dedicated folk at thehiddenblade.

AC2 had several assassination missions that allowed for a lot more freedom of choice. AC1 felt far to opressive in more than its setting. I still think that the combat of AC2 was more difficult than AC1. AC1 was more difficult for a newer player, but two moderately expereienced players, one playing Ac1 and one playing AC2, the AC1 player would invariable kill guards faster than the AC2 one.

It was very shallow difficulty, the difficulty that was there, and quite honestly, I WISH it would desynch you when you were spotted, because fighting a tedious amount of guards to get an unsatisfying kill meant I just stood there waiting to die. I lost more fights because I was rolling my eyes at having to do ANOTHER fight than I did because I was overpowered. In fact, I don't remember ever being overpowered in an AC fight. It was either a fault of the controls for countering or something else being sluggish with their input, or my inexperience for the first hour of play.

Brotherhood was linear, yes, but it really was not all that bad. It caused me to think during gameplay far more than most action adventure games, and gave me a great deal more leeway for freedom and invention. Combat was not that difficult, but it never has been. previously, combat was easy and shallow feeling. Now it's easy and fun. I'd appreciate some difficulty being added to compensate for the additional offensive capabilities being added in revelations, at least for higher ranking guards. all ranks should attack more often and faster, they don't need to telegraph their attack if their icon is going to flash. And it would be great if the game didn't force you to target guards that are part of the group that is standing around you, sometimes I want to finish off the crossbowman standing in the corner before he takes a piece out of me.

But all in all, it was a far better experience than playing AC1. The story wasn't as amaizng as AC2's, but it was much better told.

And we've got a new author for Revelations, and he seems to have the right idea, since he wrote the story for bloodlines, which was awesome. Everything about this story is new territory for Ac, and I'm very excited about it. I like everything about the gameplay we've seen, but I'm reserving total judgement until we see everything in its entirety. the e3 demo purposefully ignored a lot of features, and was more about showcasing one of the action-packed moments in the game, which some fans may roll their eyes at, but which I think give the game an interesting flavour.

being a real life assassin might be boring unglamourous work, but this story is definately a little outside reality. It's good to play with that, and give the player some points where they can feel some true intesnity after all the sneaking and skullduggery. It's not like these are assassionation missions. These are flavour moments between core gameplay missions. and they're much more interwoven with gameplay than brotherhood's. I thought they were talking out their butts when they said that over and over in interviews, but it really does look more like actual gameplay than a transition to a set-piece, like in brotherhood or Call of Duty.

Seriously, have faith. Brotherhood was better than it had any right to be, and now that Ubisoft sees how well it was recieved, they're putting everything they've got into this.
