I must be lucky. The worst bug I experienced was falling through the map once. Everything else has been very minor, and I'm loving the combat system.

How is the map broken?

I admit it takes some getting used to, but I really don't see that combat is that hard or awkward... I had more problems trying to do combo's in batman than killing guards here so far.
I can't speak for the map, I only synch'd 2 areas & have a tiny little hole open - lots more to go for me. The missions are amazing and challenging imo - It seems like there's lots more guards covering areas & stealth is harder in this one ? Taking alot of time.

So far and fortunately, I haven't had any bugs either. I'm loving this game, I seem to be the main problem with my screw ups lol

I agree. Right now the user reviews are better than the paid reviews but you're pretty much getting the reception on how people are feeling on the forums here and elsewhere. People are very vocal because they love the franchise and it seems AC3 is doing things that takes a couple steps back.

I hope this will be indeed a learning experience from Ubi and the staff has been kind so far with the reception the game has been getting though negative on the forums they keep reassuring us. They are not making the situation worse like Bioware with former employees like Stanley Woo who was let go for being disgruntled but other disgruntled workers brought him back to work for free before they left to insult customers.

LOL bury my head in the sand?? I just discovered this series a little over 2 years ago, I have no built in loyalty to defend Ubisoft. I don't work for them, if I didn't like the game I'd say so. I just don't get the complaining, I think the game's great. Then again I've been lucky to have had no real visual bug issues, its been a very smooth ride for me.

Can all you whiners at least do me a solid then and keep it in the same thread? Why everyone making their first post decides to start their own thread about the same topic everyone's already complaining about is a little ridiculous. For those of us you don't actually despise the game, it gets timesome wading through 14 different thread versions of "This game sucksss" to find a relevant discussion thread.

Its in-explainable, but the Graphics are definitely upgraded from before. The Faces, Clothes, Physics, number of Polygons, Lighting and foliage. Hell, the past 2 games did not even look alike as you claim..

No, they are definately different. Revelations already had exceptional graphics, which I feel it never really got credit for. Especially on Ezio, have you seen him in game wearing the Ishak Pasha armour? It looks absolutely flawless.


But AC3 textures look more organic and real, as opposed to the pretty but slightly plasticky looking textures of AC2 - ACR.


And look at the wet weather textures, that's when the graphics really shine IMO, the stoney ground of Boston in a raintsorm looks far more incredible than anything in previous AC. The water is also much better looking. Textures in general are well detailed but smoother than in the past.


Character textures vary, in some cases they are actually slightly worse than ACR (Look a little painted) but the detail on Achilles, for example, is unsurpassed. Same goes with clothes, Revelations already did this very well and sometimes in AC3 it looks painty but the best of AC3 surpasses the best of ACR.


Oh, I forgot to add also, the graphics are slightly but noticeably improved from the already stellar Revelations. Not always, not everywhere, but overall, definately. However the more impressive feat is how it manages this with a higher and smoother frame rate, in general a larger and more detailed world, more NPC's and in general more going on. With all the content packed into AC3 I would expect the frame rate to drop to a slow crawl, judging by how Revelations would struggle at times. But AC3 just runs so smooth, while looking sooo goood

And ? That`s it ? Am I supposed to Yield now ? Just look at the models and environment closely, mate... Do a side by side comparison for god`s sake. I know upgraded Graphics when I see it (Its not the best looking game ever, but its definitely nothing like the past 2 games, which are not alike either btw)

The number of Polygons is greatly increased, The Faces have better textures, the clothes look amazing to the smallest thread.

Oh, Ubisoft made that because they saw what MotionScan was capable of. They wanted to 'copy' the technology but take it a step further and made it full body motion capture. Not sure if they succeeded but body movements look more fluid in AC3

That's what I thought. If Ubisoft actually copied the tech, then we might as well accuse any game with facial capture tech of "copying."

Also... L.A. Noire wasn't made by anyone but Rockstar North who used MoCap for bodies and facial expressions (talking, emotions); SAME technology used by Avatar... God****ed you people claiming it was made by others are stupid.
No, It was not made by Rockstar. The developer of the MotionScan was Depth Analysis, the sister Company of Team Bondi.

Most of the work was by Team Bondi

I'm the same way with this too. I wonder if they were the same ones complaining about not changing enough in ACR? I get that some people may not love such a different AC from the previous Trilogy we played, but MANY were complaining about Revelations last year like this too

I don't mind some valid criticism & troubleshooting (legit bugs, problems figuring something out etc.)- I had some problems w/ the guns myself but some of these threads are so nit picky & utterly anal, it's embarrassing and imo, unfair with the level of game this is on several fronts from story to good missions and amazing graphics/detail.

I'm gonna throw my hat in this discussion since I was going to post a question about the dev of the game. As for the 'nit picky & utterly anal' comments you've read, I really think it chalks up to misdirected anger concerning the game industry's overall accepted practices nowadays, namely the Release & Patch method with DLC coming in second. There is no doubt (regardless if you absolutely love it or hate it) that this game could have benefited from some additional polish time but the industry standard is today, release it and patch it which literally results in the end-user = QA part II. So given the amount one pays, the anticipation, industry practice, it's inevitable a majority of end-users will feel 'ripped-off' and complain. Just my two cents...

As for my question, does anyone know why they keep changing the controls per every game? It states in the beginning they've fixed or enhanced the controls but as an example, I find it frustrating running down an alley and slightly bump a porch step, barrel, whatever (seems no one can do corners correctly) and suddenly do the 'hop to every available climbing platform' dance while trying to escape; Brotherhood and Revelations was perfect in being necessary to use a button as well as a trigger so the aforementioned never happened. I know its not something solely Ubisoft does but it begs the question, why. Using the map, yeah, still catching myself using the left control stick to zoom in and watching the menus dance all over the place is a joy. Other than that, a few glitches but enjoying the game though whomever on the team decided to use blue as an overall map color, I guess no one thought that might cause confusion since the universal color of water is blue...interesting,

I would rather discuss how great of a time I'm having outside of the official feedback thread.

I was mentioning something relating to this in another thread - the game is much longer than ACR so people aren't breezing thru it and getting an overall view of the game so alot of people like me who aren't far enough along can't agree or disagree with your euphoria about it yet lol - plus I can't give one of my own yet either.

So I guess they're just nit picking little things as they go along and haven't taken the entire thing in it's full, completed scope - - so we're seeing people who aren't liking smaller, specific aspects that have changed from the previous games? That's kind of my assumption. I notice most of it is about little stuff, not game breaking bugs etc.
I think it's true what another poster said, 'people dislike change'.... I think that's very true & I'm one of them myself but I refuse to not try to embrace where AC is going. I love the AC concept & gameplay too much.

All I know is that I'm used to this in this particular forum - I wasn't here in the ACB days, I came in late to the series but it was sure there with ACR & I was really discouraged about it. I loved that game & played it 2 more times since. ??? I dunno.

I know its not something solely Ubisoft does but it begs the question, why.
For me, free-running has become more controllable because my thumb is freed up to manipulate the camera at all times. Another advantage is that you'll almost never fall to your death while free-run at full speed. Of course, as you mentioned, turning corners and passing by small obstacles can be a pain...initially. I found a way to lessen the annoyance by letting go of the shoulder button for a few milliseconds when turning a corner, then resume to free-run after quickly adjusting the direction Connor's facing. That's my experience.

That must've been rough. I also joined the forum when Rev came out, but actually played all the games at that point. My first impression was that how ironic it was for an official AC forum to be full of AC haters, lol. But, as you said, it's probably in our nature to be negative.

I think that in condensing the button command use for every single little motion & movement you make, that's ended up happening. In my mission to sabotage a couple cannons, I was running to get to some cover & he ends up jumping onto everything in his path - crates, ledges, etc. & I ended up climbing a wall instead of ducking in some brush or missing the haystack.
In making climbing so much easier, I think that's the negative result that he automatically does that? But then it saves me the tedious & annoying climbing commands at the same time & it helped keep me from being discovered a few times since he honed right in on the ladder I wanted to climb just in time.

As for the industry stuff - I don't know the full cost, amount of work or deadlines they run into to put high end games out (if you notice, the expectations of gamers get higher and higher and as we see that on the rise, it puts companies in a predicament to deliver or else they get attacked for that too), but then if it's the standard as you say, this is common and to just be expected with most games today so why relentlessly take it out on them.
Maybe if people would start expecting less and not demanding as much, they'd get something different.? Maybe it isn't all THEM to blame??

Indeed - those who have no problems or love the new controls - will be busy completing it ;)


So, we do seem to have a lot of bug threads - however some are repeats so it can look a lot more than really there is..

That - plus some people are a little more vocal than others.. ;)

HOWEVER - these forums are here for bugs and issues to be raised in - that's how things get changed..

That's why the combat is different - people wanted change.. [however change is a bad thing for some - and takes time to adjust]

That must've been rough. I also joined the forum when Rev came out, but actually played all the games at that point. My first impression was that how ironic it was for an official AC forum to be full of AC haters, lol. But, as you said, it's probably in our nature to be negative.

Trust me, it isn't half as bad here as some of the other forums.. *cough*BSN*cough*

these forums are here for bugs and issues to be raised in - that's how things get changed..

That's why the combat is different - people wanted change.. [however change is a bad thing for some - and takes time to adjust]

IMO it was a very good change, this is the most fluid both combat and (above ground) movement has ever been by far.

I'm not saying change something simply for the sake of changing something, but if said change is an improvement (like in AC3), then do it. Personally I enjoy when I have to re-learn how to do something like combat here. It takes something stagnant and makes it challenging again. And it makes it fun & exciting when you keep discovering new tricks while doing it.

I have to say, I'm having a BLAST in Seq. 2-3. These missions are fantastic & the story's picking up.
With more guards (strategically put in the worst possible places for me lol) , it's taking me longer to do missions too, so I feel I've already gotten my money's worth at full price and that was one of the main things I was worried about. So I'm very happy with AC3 so far!! :D

Ya in IGN's & a couple other reviews I've read how the beginning was painfully slow & boring. I disagree, I totally enjoyed it, the story's great, and I liked the Haytham character too.

And if you're loving it already, wait until you get to sequence 6, that's when things really open up...

:D can't wait. & ya I'm really partial to Haytham at this point - he's a normal type of man that I suggest you don't mess with lol

I'm more of a moderate gamer so I very much appreciate slower beginnings so I can learn the ropes and get accustomed to things before they amp up on me.
I don't know if people are just used to blowing thru doors, guns-a-blazin & nonstop carnage or what, but AC is not COD nor do I ever want it to turn into that.

Maybe if people would start expecting less and not demanding as much, they'd get something different.? Maybe it isn't all THEM to blame??

That's the last thing we need to happen. In many cases, they're already getting carte blanche to just re-skin previous games and call them a sequel. COD is a prime example, and it really bugs me when I see some of the defensive, fanboy responses on this forum to valid, qualified critique of this game. Guess what? The only way things improve in ANY field is by feedback; both good and bad. You would literally think that this game is perfect if you read through some of the responses. Let's try and be adults about this, and accept that there are flaws, some of which are major IMO.

I'll be blunt here: quite simply, the 'scripted' paper weight combat is not good enough for a game in 2012; not when you've got games out there like Dark Souls, which unfortunately, literally make AC's combat feel like a complete joke. The series needs a complete overhaul in this respect; less letting the game do it for you, and more manual interraction from the actual player. I shouldn't be scaling buildings, flipping over objects etc just by pushing forward and R1; it's child's play and completely regressive IMO.

Just because someone thinks the game is perfect does not make him/her fan boy, such is the case with you. Just because you think the game sucks does not mean you`re Ignorant. Stop calling vocal supporters Fanboys and they`ll stop calling you Ignorant. Demanding Them to stop calling you Ignorant and yet you still call them fan boys is Unfair..

IGN's review decided that Halo 4 is a 9.8. i don't really see why, i mean the storyline for Halo is amazing but it has been getting repetitive in its mechanics and gameplay. that's just my two cents though. but i swear to god if Black ops 2 gets given a higher score than assassins creed 3 i will make an online petition to stop them from making crap reviews

Perfect?? Who said just because we like it we think its perfect? Ya it'd be nice if combat was more difficult, or at least more complicated, but its been improved nonetheless. AC3 has its issues, but I just appreciate the massive scope & scale Ubi did with this game, IMO it came out great. It seems the main issue is visual bugs, and frankly I've been lucky to not be experiencing any above GTA levels (which I frankly get more a laugh out of than anything), so a mostly glitchless AC3 has been an awesome experience.

Most of the gameplay stuff you're complaining about are "issues" which have been there since AC1, so frankly I don't know how you've lasted through 5 games. How bout just don't play it anymore since you clearly don't like it. I hate FPS games but I don't spend my time railing on people about it on CoD boards, I just don't play them. Makes sense, right?

Hyatari is right though. If you say a game is perfect then you are a fanboy, because a reasonable person would say "Yes this game has flaws but I love it because it's great in so many other areas." Either not admitting that there's flaws or simply saying they don't matter is fanboyish behaviour.

On the other hand I don't think anyone here is saying the game is perfect. A lot of people like myself think it's absolutely fantastic, probably GOTY, but realise there are quite a few flaws in the game too.

Most of those reviewers are pretty much ACII fans rather than AC fans in general who were expecting another ACII, especially IGN's reviewer. On the Game Informer podcast's extremely well done discussion on ACIII, the reviewer, who gave the game a 9.5, really sounds like an AC fan, in that he loves all the games while admitting their flaws. In summary of the podcast, he thinks this buggy game doesn't deserve its points being slashed too much because of its ambitious nature. Really, listen to it.

11-02-2012, 10:00 PM
I still don't get how this game is 'ambitious'? I don't feel it at all. Some people are giving it carte blanche for simply being big. Nah, it would have been far more ambitious if the gameplay was smoother and more original. Scripted combat is dated as all hell.

I'm into Sequence 4 now and I have to say, I don't get how anyone isn't loving this game !? And this is coming from a rabid EZIO fan :p I didn't think I would be able to fall in love w/ it becuz I miss his character so much.
I'll give people some lenience if they have nasty bug issues but sorry, to hate on it & bag on AC Devs, you're full of crap my friends. Sorry.
This has the total AC vibe - I was just synching the map.... chased after 2 couriers.... had to run from some soldiers.... brought back good memories.

At the end of Seq. 3, you get out of the Animus & go back to Desmond, I checked his mail (receiving messages) & there's a note there from "Rebecca" to Desmond & it's basically to us fans listing all the things they did & changed & sometimes why with the release date on it of Oct. 30, 2012.
Interesting stuff and I thought that was SO kool of them to include.

You guys are nuts to think this sucks at least so far - I'm more impressed with each sequence as the story intensifies & gets deeper.

I don't agree with you.

It looks like Connor is jumping much quicker on stuff you don't want to jump on than in previous AC games because of the new freerunning controls with just one button.

I think that in condensing the button command use for every single little motion & movement you make, that's ended up happening. In my mission to sabotage a couple cannons, I was running to get to some cover & he ends up jumping onto everything in his path - crates, ledges, etc. & I ended up climbing a wall instead of ducking in some brush or missing the haystack.
In making climbing so much easier, I think that's the negative result that he automatically does that? But then it saves me the tedious & annoying climbing commands at the same time & it helped keep me from being discovered a few times since he honed right in on the ladder I wanted to climb just in time.

As for the industry stuff - I don't know the full cost, amount of work or deadlines they run into to put high end games out (if you notice, the expectations of gamers get higher and higher and as we see that on the rise, it puts companies in a predicament to deliver or else they get attacked for that too), but then if it's the standard as you say, this is common and to just be expected with most games today so why relentlessly take it out on them.
Maybe if people would start expecting less and not demanding as much, they'd get something different.? Maybe it isn't all THEM to blame??

I did think condensing the controls would also be helpful but it might just be me in an avg player struggling since I've always had to master the intricate ways of the new commands not to be discovered. Chasing Hinkley almost had me packing up the game since I kept running up the barrel on a corner...then realized short cutting him and then retrying multiple times to realize, target+B to tackle him.

As for the industry, you raise a valid point but can you lower your expectations? When I saw the concept of this game I was so excited. Playing it now though, again while it's addicting and entertaining its still very very hard to look away from the concept (what you see they are trying to achieve) and then being llet down as to how this game does not flow easily (again, targeting industry practice not specific devs).

My example is pretty much the cutscenes. I love a good story, relish a great one but for example the battle at bunker hill, I'm getting excited listening to the general/major/whatever and suddenly it just BAM cuts, ends and the whole 'here we go we have to reload' happens. It literally leaves me thinking, did my box hiccup, glitch or crash the way it ends so abruptly....feeling like watching a murder/mystery and just as the detective is about to announce the murderer, the power goes out for 10 seconds and returns to see the culprit handcuffed, bagged and tagged and left going what happened?

Anyway, in NY now and just getting more confused as to the story since it feels so hollow, like Connor never grew up...sidebar - maybe hearing his child voice still speaking when I'm skinning prey as an adult has something to do with it but not convinced. I'll finish it but I'm not even remotely interested in synching completely or quest for items like in the previous versions. I think this one ACIII will be the one gathering dust on my shelf as I play the others over and over.

After a shockingly tedious beginning, the gameplay grows on you, but I wish they had cut back the first few chapters and expanded the final half of the game. But in terms of glitches and annoyances, ACIII has to be the worst of the series - areas that can't be climbed are all over the place. There are a few places that should be easily climbable but they stop the player cold - one is a fallen tree that leads to a leap of faith - you can't jump straight onto it - you have to approach from the sides, which kind of puts a damper on smooth and fast movement. Then there are the times when you're leaping from tree to tree and the game says that as long as you don't touch the 'drop' button you can't fall - BS! I fall all the time. Then there are leaps that you need to do, that you should be able to do, but that the game won't let you do unless you're in just precisely the right spot. Then there are soldiers who can see you and shoot you through buildings. Etc., etc., etc. The game is full of stuff like this. I'd like to meet the guys who did the quality control on this game.

I never experienced any bugs that made enough of an impression to remember while playing AC1, AC2 or ACB (though I was around to know about some of the major game-breaking bugs in Brotherhood). I had a few of the common ones in Revelations, but that wasn't a big deal (except the music bug after finishing the game). But AC3 really takes the cake. The bugs are just everywhere and occur in many different situations, so it's not like it's just one type of system that has bugs. Assassination targets in the Frontier frequently spawn inside objects where you can't reach them, and map icons for fast travel appear and disappear on a whim.

I was glad when Alex Hutchinson said they were reaching their alpha stage in March or April and how they wanted to basically ship AC3.5, thinking of how polished the game would be. I should have known not to trust a statement like that. Almost every time a developer says something like that, it ends up feeling like an exaggeration or a lie. This game is not AC3.5 by any stretch of the imagination.

Having said all that, the game is fun and incredible in a lot of ways. I even like a lot of the changes such as the free-running and combat. But the amount of bugs is really unacceptable. I would rather have a slightly scaled back game with more polish than a game with this many systems and this many bugs.
