I'm kinda thinking that Ubisoft went short on Revelations so that they could go long on Assassin's Creed III...shady stuff if true, but it does speak well for AC III. If not, and they've just legitimately run out of inspiration...well, let's just hope that's not the case.

All of them sucked, even AC2 (which is my favourite but it's too damn long with all the DLC on PC). There are many things to improve on still though so I have some hope in AC3.

Every Assassins is a multi-studio project. A lot of Ubisoft branches are used in the making of them.

I only played AC2 and I thought it sucked too.

Well if they want to sell it as a full fledged sequel and not just "an another AC" then they have to go the extra mile.

The rumours have been that AC3 has been under development during Brotherhood and Revelations, so if that's the case it should be good.

I think the reason why Brotherhood turned out so well is because it seemed as though it was always part of the AC2 plan-- the story was just so tightly interwoven and the fact that they had modeled Rome but you barely visited it in AC2. My own theory is that at one point, AC2 and Brotherhood were one game, but they ended up splitting it in two. Revelations on the other hand really didn't have a strong story behind it and while it does fill some gaps, if you never played it, you probably won't be lost in the next game.

You know, I won't mind this franchise milking if Assassin's Creed ends with this generation. Long form storytelling you can complete within one console generation is impressive.

But, y'know, Ubisoft.

Revelations is not really that bad, but I prefer much more AC2 and Brotherhood.
The city was not as memorable, the characters were worse (except Sofia and Ezio, and well, they made me not hate altair in this one), and the stroy was meh. But the game is not bad per se, its has some good moments.
Ah yes, and the music is the best from the series.

The problem with Revelations, and what makes it tragic, is that it runs far better than any of the other games. More stable framerate, much better character models and animation, lip synching, lighting, etc. It's the best looking AC game by far. But it's wasted on a inconsequential story and a very limp quest.

Wait, I was on the fence with Revelations. Should I skip it and read summary instead? I enjoyed Brotherhood but I completed it just a few months ago and I'm only interested in Revelations because of that damned cliffhanger on brotherhood.

For people who enjoy the Assassin's Creed games, would you ever go back and replay them from the start? Not for achievements, just to go through them again because they were fun the first time?

Personally, I don't think I could ever go through any of these games again even though I've enjoyed my time with them. Which is making me question whether I ever liked this series to begin with. I mean a good game is a good game right? Like you would want to replay them if they were really that great?

As far as the setting is concerned, you should all get ready for America as both magazines and birdy are pointing this way.

the setting has me concerned, I wanted Egypt and full PoP gameplay in an AC game, instead the game supposedly employs more active ennemies and range weapons...

I want the parkour to feel awesome.

It looks like Assassin's Creed Revelations will get an Singleplayer DLC. Xbox360Achievements.org updated the game with an unknown dlc which has Singleplayer like achievements.

Maybe major spoilers:
Part of the Creed // Take the induction leap of faith
Jump they say // Reach the Animus memo
Enter the Animus // Enter the Animus simulation
Meet your maker // Finish memory five
Find all Pieces // Find all decipher fragments
Save yourself // Land on a block after falling more than 25 meters
Impress Warren Vidic // Complete the Animus testing sequence without failing
Cross Styx without dying // Make it across the river Styx without failing

+ 2 unknown achievements.

I feel like I've played enough AC games in the same setting, with the same characters that I don't need to go back and replay any of them.

My experience with the first was amazing as I played while we were on a vacation in Turkey. Too bad buildings weren't climbable in real life :(

I just hope they do a better job with story telling. I hated how rev treated such big plot points as nothing.

Oh, it's subject 16. Nice of you to show up like four times and lets never really answer anything about you. Oops, now you've been defragged and gone for good. Super.

Oh yeah, Lucy is dead. Go feel sad for two seconds Desmond, then get back to work like she never really mattered.


Also, fuck whoever designed the Desmond parts. Those weren't fun. In a game with a parkour system, I don't want to do shitty first person block building, slow platforming. I thought it was gonna be just Desmond free running in data, not what we got.

Huh, not really getting all the negativity surrounding how frequent there are releases for the series. Would it really make people happier if they waited a extra year for no other reason than waiting a year?
Look I could understand if the "new" content was on the level of SvR, most sports, COD, but shit man, these are nothing but stellar games.
For me it is a wonderful series, and I'm happy that Ubisoft doesn't create some arbitrary break between the games simply to appease those silly notions of milking the series.
As long as Ubisoft continues to put out fantastic sequels, I will gladly buy them day one regardless of when the previous edition was released.

Edit: I also don't get how Rev sucked?
Imo it was on par with II and much better than Brohood. I think those who opted not to play Rev are truly missing out.

This logic doesn't really apply if you feel they have been of declining quality.

I'm hyped for AC3 because it does not seem to be the same team who were on a yearly schedule with the last two games, but it really shouldn't be a controversial statement that I think Brotherhood and especially Revelations were stagnant, at best.

I would be kind of shocked if he didn't hitch a ride in Desmond's head at the end there.

Right, but then we'd just arguing opinion or preference; Which I guess is fine, as long as people understand the points are that of opinion.

I personally thought brotherhood was pale in comparison to II in terms of story, but even though Rev started out slow I found by the end of the game I had really enjoyed the story, especially the ending.

Now as I'm writing this I can concede that had Bro & Rev been one game it would have been, imo, the single greatest game I ever played. Though to suggest that both games in complete form from story, to locations, to game play should have been released as one product*, I feel is both unreasonable and unrealistic.


*Just a general statement. I'm not implying the member I quoted is suggesting that scenario.
