That 'Xythil' is such a neurotic moron. He IS insulting the Ubisoft company by calling them lazy for the 4 years they worked on that game. The historical aspects are near perfect, the gameplay has never been done like this before: ''Climb everything you can see with your eyes'', and the graphics are the best I've seen so far and yet that guy dares to call Ubisoft lazy. This is the only developer that actually surpasses everything in the gameplay aspect and make it fun. He also lost his entire credibility for a lot of people (including me) by saying this:


QUOTED
FOR
TRUTH

You should have seen it when I said Bioshock was pretty shallow compared to what was advertised by Ken Levine and his devs. They promised the world and only deliverd a neat atmosphere and good story(although the story fell apart at the end) and tried to use this to cover up the lackluster game play, idiotic AI, and EASY mode Vita Tanks.

Bioshock has been praised to heaven for it being a great game with a compelling storyline and great AI. It scored an average of 95% and yet he's the only one who calls that game lackluster. Besides.. He also got bored of GTA (all series) in less then 5 hours and he also called it repetitive. That guy isn't supposed to be a gamer, let alone post on that forum and post his impressions.

Nice read there people! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Xythil seems to think that all games are "shallow"... or could it be that he is too "shallow" to realize how good these seemingly "shallow" games are.

Wish he were in these forums so that we could flame his rear inside-out... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

You know what's funny. People posting impressions is useless because 8 out of 10 people buy games based on reviews. Since Assassin's Creed already has an average rating of 94% I'm sure this game will get a lot of sales.

EDIT: "8 out of 10 people buy games based on reviews." then i'm one of those 2, if there is something i dont realy look much at, is reviews, almost every game get 90+ points..so..

plus, i've played games top rated, and didnt liked...and others who many said that it were ****, totaly got me addicted http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I'm also 1 of those 2 people who don't buy games out of reviews because mostly they do not represent the end product in my own eyes when I finally play it. I haven't been dissapointed in any game who had an average of 90-100%, though. I know for sure that I'll be enjoying Assassin's Creed a lot.

i buy games based on how they look to me how they feel to me and well pretty nothing to do with what other peple think.

Personally, I find Assassin's Creed a next-gen game, and it will start the foundation of many next-gen type games. And by him criticizing a project that has pushed the limits of gaming engines, and changed gaming experience, I find him completely ignorant.

As for his claims of laziness over 4 years, I could somewhat be on the same page with him, though I am completely unaware in the aspect of game design, and what it takes.

That's just my fairly short two cents.

He is right there needs to be more weapon verity. They should put a modified crossbow in game baby some different ways to kill a target besides hidden blade. They could really fix up the game by adding DLC. I always new it would get repetitive but I would expect a few different types of weapons or at least for targets to fight back instead of running away every god dam time!

Well Patrice said in one interview that the 9 key guys have their individual AI when it concerns to be assassinated.Some might flee while another one, if he is a knight,he will stay and try to eliminate you.I mean they managed to achieve 120 different people in a screen with individual AI as well.The key guys might have something more...i guess. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah. That guy Xythil was stupid.
He kept saying the game was repetitive, that all he did was pickpocket, beat up a guy, kill, run away. No wonder it was repetitive. He's halfway through the game and he never tried anything different? Never fought instead of ran? Never did one sidequest over another? Never wandered around exploring or picked a fight with a Knight Templar? He should have finished... really FINISHED... the game before posting his opinions.

Yes, climbing anywhere is nice, but if the entire point of the game is the same thing with no variety in structure/choices (IE, Hitman was about killing certain people, but there were different ways to accomplish it and with variety to your targets) and the only side things to do are those few choices, I can see his point.



He also lost his entire credibility for a lot of people (including me) by saying this:

...He said it had a good atmosphere and story, but the gameplay itself was rather lackluster.

In Bioshock the tanks and things did make it quite easy, it was like "oops died? not too bad, just restart here yay."

The gameplay itself was a bit on the generic side imo.

edit - I am also someone who finds the GTA series repetitive after playing a few hours.

I beat GTA 3, but playing the others after it, Vice city, SA, etc I never beat them because it was just more of the same old same old GTA formula and I got bored with it after playing a few hours.

The developers should be lucky that only 10% of the gamers are like you and Xythil. GTA sold millions and millions of copies and will continue to do so. That's one of the main reasons why guys like you will get flamed for your opinion on some games. It doesn't make you a bad guy, but it's because a lot of people defend games they really like. You seem like a fair and reasonable guy, but he was just downright neurotic and he kept bashing the game on every little thing. Like there's nothing great about it in the first place.
