The earliest I'm gonna get ACR is in Thanks Giving, if I'm lucky and people have been posting walkthroughs on ACR already throughout youtube and I've been so tempted to watch them. Some people here on the forums told me that they are amazing.

So my question to everybody is should I watch these videos? Or should I not? If feel like if I watch them it'll spoil too much for me, and that if I don't I'll be going through hell for the next 2weeks-2month and I'll be missing out on so much.

Please leave your thoughts on what I should do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks in advance.

I've watched the walkthroughs on Youtube and i'm getting ACR tomorrow, and I have to say, i kinda feel like I ruined it for me. It's worth the wait though, just don't waste your excitement watching spoilers.

Thanks in advance. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>personally..?

I would say no...

I had the ending of a few games spoiled, and I don't really feel motivated to complete them..

End of the day, you should be old enough to know your own mind, and make a dicision based on it.

Peer pressure should never come into it..

If you have to, just watch some gameplay. But I'm pretty sure you know my answer.

No

I'd stay away from spoilers. In the long run, you will be happy that you were able to play the game yourself, instead of watching someone else play it.

If you pre-ordered early, like some people have, fight the temptation, you have been through months of waiting for the game already. One or two more weeks should be nothing. I know its easier said than done but, in my opinion, I think you would be happier if you play the game yourself first.

I say why not? My view is as long as you don't watch too many of the walkthrough gameplay videos you won't be dissuaded from completing the game. Watch some gameplay videos like those posted by Zwooosh since they contain few spoilers. Also just because you watch a walkthrough it doesn't prevent you from enjoying the gameplay when you play it because you will do things differently!

Then again I have a bias because I get mine tomorrow.

I've seen the gameplay videos by zwoooooosh and they're awesome. I'm really happy to see that the guards have gotten a lot harder and to see that the eye witnesses have guards around them. Can't wait to fight.

And thank you all for your opinions. I'm not gonna watch any vids http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I was a bit tempted but then i was like "the games out tomorrow and i hate getting the game spoiled" so i would say if you want to enjoy AC R, NO.

you're free to watch multiplayer videos!

Aside that, I wouldn't recommended it since you'll run the fun factor when you do play ACR

I don't mind ACR multiplayer vids. I watch those sometimes, nbd.

I'm so sad that the earliest time I'm getting it is Thanks Giving. But that's a maybe. It really depresses me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Please don't watch them mate. A game such as this need not be spoiled.

I won't. I'm not making the same mistake I did with Brotherhood.

Ok I have just been hearing a lot of people say that this game is short, has a crappy beginning, reveals nothing but a few things that don't matter, and has a disappointing ending. Is Revelations really that bad??? Like seriously right now, I don't know what to do. All this talk is letting my hopes down for the game, and I'm scared that when I buy it, it won't be as good as I thought.

Both are brilliant games with ACR being the better but they're so different. As for your question it's amazing best AC yet. Also the different districts feel like different cities. Finally I actually thought I was in the game sort of as when I walked past a bunch of smoke I felt suffocated but in a good way.

It depends, if you need to watch them for a reason. Thanksgiving is next week. I watched only the first 16 minutes of the game because I'm planning to do an LP of it. But after that, I'm not going on Youtube for today because I'm getting the game tonight and I'm no way going to spoil myself more. Because I just spoiled myself a bit and I'm depressed on something that happens in the game and I'm sad.

Do what you think it's right. Also, just because a few people say it sucks, don't listen to them. Listen to yourself. All that matters is your opinion not others.

I personally think it's a beautiful. I also feel it's well made. Because they actually asked the fans to input their opinions on the multiplayer aspect. Not a lot of gaming companies do that. Look at The sims. No matter how much fans ask for things and help, they don't do anything. They don't listen. I remember one of their games had a horrible glitch that erased everything in your game and fans complained and they didn't come with a patch until a year later.

But anyways about ACR; In the beginning credits you see A LOT of studios from the same company, from different parts of the world being named that worked on this game. So that says a lot. Try it and see how you feel about it.

Well that's good to hear. I'm not as excited to play the missions as I am to explore the cities. Sadly, the earliest I'm getting the game is Thanks Giving http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Btw, when's the earliest you can travel between cities?
