What is your favourite Assassin's Creed game

Mine is Assassin's Creed 2

I also like the start of AC 3, because of Haytham






(May the father of understanding guide us)

(For the getter good)

lol.

uhhmmmm

this is a hard one. I really need to replay them all to know for sure.

AC3 was my first AC game and takes place in one of my fav time periods so I have a bit of a personal bias there.

AC1 I loved the atmosphere and the interactions with Malik/Al Mualim. But game was repetative and combat sucked.

AC2 I didn't appreciate because all the "overrated" remarks it gets on the forums. I need to replay it. I remember liking it.

AC brotherhood had nice modern day and cute brotherhood mechanic. Rome and the plot was stale for me though. Cesare was hilarious and I need to try those side missions.

Revelations gave me so many feels. The gameplay was super stale. But the plot, exotic missions, and constantinople's overall look was all great.

AC3 had great characterization (despite some flaws IMO) and introduced some of the most human/likabale characters in the franchise for me.Gameplay kinda got stale a bit after replaying it for the fourth time, lol.

AC4 had great gameplay but the story was meh and the modern day was terrible IMO.

Liberation was a heap of a mess on so many levels IMO but the music was splendid.

Freedom Cry's plot was bland but music was also nice.

ToKW had fun (but rather stiff) fresh gameplay mechanics and a really nice narrative.

So they all have their ups n' downs. I'll say AC3 for now but it's subject to change. I actually think Rogue will end up being my fav so far TBH.

Assassin's Creed 3. The story and characters are astonishing.

And I haven't grown tired of playing the Predator in the Frontier yet.

Also, in anticipation of Unity, I like to dress Connor in the charleston outfit, equip him with a french rapier and a single gun, summon 3 bodyguard Assassins, and storm Boston together. :cool:

It's kind of difficult to pick out a single favourite, because I enjoyed all the games for different reasons.

For the storyline- AC1, AC2, ACRe, AC3

Gameplay- ACB, AC4

Loved everything about IV - the gameplay and story - and ACB has a place in my heart because it was my first AC game and just a very entertaining game despite the story being pretty meh.

Special mention to AC2 and ACR as well. As for AC3, dullest gameplay in the series for me. Add in poor story presentation, pacing issues etc and it travels further down the list - the mission design was the stuff of nightmares. But I liked the story despite its flaws, and I love Connor and Haytham. The Templars were definitely more interesting too. To me though, worst of the bunch has to be AC1. Going from ACB and AC2 to AC1 was jarring, the game is just so devoid of variety it's an absolute chore to play through.

I guess:

ACIV
ACB
AC2
ACR
AC3
AC1

I loved AC3's Frontier so I went with it. ACB and ACR were cool. I didn't like AC1 but it's my fault because I played AC2 first. AC2 introduced a lot of new things so it was awesome. AC4 was pretty good. I like the plantations. A lot of replayablility.

Simple reason for my choices... Side content. I buy these game because i like having a nice choice of things to do. Lots of extras and hidden stuff and i also like to do some of the collectables. For me, ACB and AC2 had this perfect. Ac4 was a huge game too. At the other end of the scale, AC3 side quests were thrown together. The assasin missions were too simplistic and dull. Boston brawler was pointless. The underground was a repetetive nightmare of blah. The peg leg missions were ok but having to faff on getting the trinkets got old fast.

Can I ask why Liberation is always shoehorned into polls where it has no business? It's not a main entry, its origins are in the handheld market and it's first and foremost a Vita game. I don't see why other spin-off titles like Altair's Chronicles, Bloodlines, and Discovery are excluded from these kind of topics but Liberation isn't. Yeah it was ported to consoles but so what? If one of the AC iOS games was launched as a PS3/PS4 app, it wouldn't make it any less of a non-main-line spin-off.

Anyway, minor quibble aside, my vote goes to AC1.

AC 1, AC 2 and AC 4 for me. I can't choose between them.

AC 1 for the best setting and most brutality.
AC 2 for overall gameplay and new gameplay mechanics along with the story.
AC 4 for the freedom and fresh naval mechanics, along with Edward, my favourite AC protagonist.

Well to be perfectly honest, it’s a tie between ACII and AC:R with AC:B really, really close to them. I voted for ACII because it was the start of the trilogy that I love the most.

If I’m to arrange them from most to least favorite (as I don’t hate any AC game) they’d be like this

AC:R/ACII
AC:B
ACIII
ACI
ACIV:BF
AC:L

AC2 will always remain my favorite AC, sure it has it's flaws (mostly in the story/writing department) but screw it, it's just so fun to play.

The atmosphere is perfect probably the best in the series for me, the free running is vastly improved from AC1 and it's soo much more fun in comparison and in general it's just enjoyable to replay for me.

As said it's quite a flawed game, but it has a charm that to me hasn't been matched by any AC game since.

I like Aveline and her story for one, it has it's errors here and there like anything but I enjoy it. The bayou is more dense and exotic than the frontier, New Orleans is beautiful(except the fact that it's on Vita), I'd actually compare New Orleans to Firenze(another favorite city of mine). It gives the same feel, and Firenze feels like home. It's mostly the world, characters and story. Gameplay is not that interesting.

I thought ACL's flaws were mostly the story and its presentation (very choppy and confusing) and the controls which were inherited from AC3. Although I'm not a huge fan of either, I agree that the Bayou and New Orleans were more appealing than AC3's locations. New Orleans is much more colorful which instantly makes it more welcoming. The ambient music also helped a LOT.

I don't understand how AC II can take second place above AC IV when it had terrible side content such as beating husbands up and delivering letters, with only Tombs and Assassination contracts being the good part of the side missions. AC III's only missions that were thrown together were the delivery, courier and Assassination contracts.
also, how the F*** can AC I be above AC III when it comes to side content?


Boston brawler was pointless.
That can be said for a lot of side missions in the other games like Couriers, Assassination contracts and beating husbands up.


The underground was a repetetive nightmare of blah.
It's an acquired taste i guess..I thought they were amazing.


The peg leg missions were ok but having to faff on getting the trinkets got old fast.
I don't see how it got "old fast" when EVERY other game has collectibles as well. I mean, sure...they could have been better hidden but come on..

You also forgot to mention the Naval contracts side missions, Nicolas Biddle's side missions, The Homestead missions and the Liberation missions. Those were pretty well done.

It's performance I agree on, the game was an edited version made by Abstergo Entertainment. It kinda shoot itself in the foot there. And I forgot to mention the soundtrack, thanks for reminding me.

Glad to see people enjoying Liberation. I enjoyed it as well, especially missions set in New Orleans. The only thing keeping me away is the Bayou. It took me about 1-2 weeks to jump back into the game because for whatever reason, the developers decided to place 70% of the game in the freaking bayou.

It sucks to be a completionist as well. *shivers* ...****ing bayou...

It wasn't JUST herding pigs, though jeez, that's the excuse everyone brings up when talking about the Homestead, man. it was just a FEW missions that were mundane: Herding pigs, Getting Dave's stuff, Getting Ellen's stuff and Stalking Myriam. What about the river rescue? what about rope-darting all those poachers? what about chasing the thief? what about fighting the bandits who were robbing Lance? What about saving Dave from redcoats? What about defending the homestead against redcoats and Quincent's mercenaries? What about saving Prudence from a bear? What about getting Achilles' painting and robes? What about beating up the people who were harassing Doctor White? The fun missions greatly outnumber the non-fun missions.

I can give you, which does mean mean I feel the same though, many of the missions you mentioned, but Achilles painting???????
It was just going to NY, climb a boring burnt building of two storeys tall and retrieve it, nothing more.

AC II has the pretty good addition of the platforming levels and gylphs: which were either absent in ACR -included in the main game- and weak in AC III. In which the underground stuff is particularly atrocious thanks to its execution:

1 NO background music.
2 Connor stuck on that slow jogging motion like 80% of the time.
3 No importance or relationship with the story AT ALL. With the glyphs, that DID matter and ALOT btw, you get to expand the universe aside Ezio and Altair. You get to know about the first civilization, their objects and how those have shaped mankind even to the point of creating it and then explaining some historical figures and events such as Napoleon having an apple, Joan of Arc murdered in order to retrieve a "magical" sword form her , the moon landing, WW II and capitalism just to name a few, introducing subject 16 in the process......

But aside from heavily padding just because, what is the purpose reading those long @&/%&& manuscrypts of hell?????? Aside from the fact you know America┤s founding , fathers were freemasons or connected to them, there is not a single indication in game of such thing. The underground stuff has NO meaning and context within the game other than "being there".

Many of the Homestead missions are similar to AC II┤s contracts and thus are in the same level for me but ACI III "leads" thanks to the naval stuff.

It was a pretty cool little parkour puzzle to find the apartment that had his painting but sure, okay...it was boring.

I can give you the background music. AC III had no soul without them but the jogging is fine for me, besides..the tunnels occasionally had some pretty neat encounters in the shape of enemies or little parkour puzzles and I agree that the free masons should have had a more expanded role.


But aside from heavily padding just because, what is the purpose reading those long @&/%&& manuscrypts of hell?????? Aside from the fact you know America┤s founding , fathers were freemasons or connected to them, there is not a single indication in game of such thing or any them having an agenda, the underground stuff is just there..
I don't think I needed a HUGE reason for the underground but yes, like I said...the masons should have had a more prominent role in the game. I liked the tunnels because the idea was cool and evidently, they're reusing it in Unity but taking advantage of the new consoles to make it better. I liked noticing the change in tunnel structure when entering the countryside and the city and I liked the puzzle itself of trying to find exits and entrances.

I disagree. Franklin's inventions = Da vInci paintings. I don't take by what's better, I take by the historical tourism aspect and they both did their jobs.

The less First Civ shenanigans, the better. :p

---------------

I'm probably the only one who enjoys the lack of ambient music in AC:3. I don't know why, but I just found it more immersed that way. I was able to hear the birds chirp, the trees brushing against the wind, the wolves howling in the night, the drums of the guards passing by, and the rivers flowing throughout the forest... It really felt authentic and real. Like, I was exploring an actual forest. There was nothing like it.

That immersive feeling was lost in AC:IV, IMO. The ambient music playing over the background noises did not make me feel like I was at a beach or at high seas at all. But still, AC isn't suppose to be a simulator. And I still enjoyed exploring AC:IV the most.

Okay...AC II's Glyphs, Tombs and Assassination contracts against AC III's Captain Kidd missions, Forts, Liberation missions, Homestead missions, Naval contracts and Biddle missions.

When I said "mattered" I did not mean to the lore, I said actually had a story and context. AC III had WAY more of those than AC II.

Assassin's Creed III has been my favorite thus far, the gameplay is great, and the 100% sync constraints don't make me want to tear my hair out so that's a plus. My favorite aspect of ACIII is the story setting, story, and characters, they feel the most human even if the modern story was 45% poo-poo. I loved the hunting and naval combat was decent enough, the crafting system needed help. Connor is the best protagonist to date (be gentle, and don't use me as a blood sacrifice) and the story was rather meaningful to me as a person and as an American. (I don't mean to sound cheesy, I just think that my country and world politics are two faced)

Assassin's Creed II is my second favorite, because the feels, no 100% is it's saving grace but the combat is frustrating and, the free running is robotic. (Like ACI)

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood was cool, and introduced new concepts like kill streaks, and the modern story was best in Brotherhood. Other than that it was awfully bland.

Assassin's Creed Liberation is great, but not much else. It was fun to play but some of the mechanics like disguises, and the noteriety system were tempo breaking

Assassin's Creed IV has great music, graphics, and gameplay; but I wasn't over fond of Edward or the rather campy modern story.

Assassin's Creed I is OG and the need for improvement was obvious, overall I have a great time playing and it was a fantastic first game.

Assassin's Creed Revelations is garbage (my opinion, please don't kill me!) it was frustrating, and felt like they didn't try to make sense, as far as the story was concerned I hated all of it. Ezio was low balled into obscurity, Alta´r didn't get enough screen time, and the modern story makes me sick.

I do however have high hopes for the next two titles, and can't wait for November!

Oh these threads always pop up every couple of months or so. And I've been on the forums for just short of 2 years. it because a long drawn out battle of AC3 being this and that, while AC1 was another way. AC2 was amazing M comes in shuts things down. Arguments follow, and 15 pages later the thread threatens to get locked if we don't stay on topic. and... history repeats itself as a whole. Were we never meant to live in peace then?



Through the years, I have watched the forum of AC. I have posted...argued...and started threads within its walls.
And in time, I have tamed it....shaped it.
Nowhere in this forum have I met a member equal to myself...
A soul willing to post in the name of destiny...
Capable enough to debate against what's rightfully wrong..
Cunning enough to stare the mods in the eye...
And charismatic enough to raise an unstoppable list of friends that can rival all of the forums'

Mr_Shade: "What are you going to do?
Pacmante: "Make some friends"

If I want to post, I post...If I want to ninja, I ninja

Sixkeys: "You are the leader of the peasants now--unite them, Pacmanate and take back the forums"

If I ever did meat such a member...
If that member entered my forums...
I know EXACTLY...how I would welcome him...

I believe all of this to be true. . . Hands down. Thank you M.

it really is. : |


the only thing that is shifting is that now people are now oddly flipping to AC3 being the favorite while AC2 drops in majority of the popularity polls and fanboys/girls come out the wood works to start hating on AC3 fans. and it's just a mess. Lol!

I come here for the comments. haha! I do wonder what it was like prior to all of this though. I imagine actual great thought provoking debates and riveting conversations!

Here is quite the contrary in fact, AC III┤s fanboys are majority and/or way more vocal and are the ones who hate AC II and their fans, even to the point of bullying. In Metacritic, Facebook, youtube, IGN i and many other places is the way you describe it.

Indeed I have been vocal in regards to that lately. Why???? Because I criticized that same problem in 2012 early 2013, that time was the other way around though. I┤m just practicing what I preached back then.

Which is respectable, no argument from me.

AC4 was excellent as well
AC1 minus the HUD and when treated as a sim

For me it is:
Brotherhood>BF>>>II>III>Revelations>>>I

Specifically:
AC:Great medieval setting,hardest combat and the best game in terms of moral greyness
AC II:Beautiful cities and completely changes the core of the game ,introducing better parkour and side missions.
ACB:My first AC,best side missions,great city IMO
ACR:Maybe the best story.Had the best city so far and tried to introduce new elements(hookblade,ziplines) even though the development time was 10 months
ACIII :Nice change of pace with a mix of rural and urban environment.The story had the potential to be the most interesting,but halfway through i lost my interest.Have to mention that this game had the best marketing.THAT HYPE.
AC IV:Nice story,mix of Assassin and pirate gameplay,cool side missions
And i hope that ACU will be the top of the list in a few months time

AC4
AC2
ACB
AC3
AC1
ACR
ACL

AC4 has only recently beat AC2.

Ok, I've given it some thought, & I'm going to change my order. (ACIV is still my favourite, though).

AC4 - Still the best game for me.
AC2 - I like the story & the gameplay. I don't care what M says.
AC1 - Been playing it again & it's actually a lot better than I remember. The investigations aren't that intrusive & the assassinations are really fun. If it wasn't for all the pain I had to go through killing those Templars & collecting those flags, I would have it as my second favourite.
AC3 - Love the story, especially Haytham. Gameplay is good, too. It only lacks in polish.
ACB - Great game. Didn't enjoy the story as much as the ones above & getting 100% sync was hard (the tank mission especially). It's also a little short.
ACR - Story is better than Brotherhood, but the gameplay lacks.
ACL - Gameplay is fine, but the story & content in the game suffers.

The Assassinations, story and setting easily make it my second favorite in the franchise after AC IV. The lack of variety in between and side activities are cardinals sins though.
