  Both stunning, and frustrating in equal measures

| | See all Hustler30's reviews (1)

A stunning story, and excellent graphics, cant save the game from pretty frustrating gameplay elements (lock picking), and terrible fighting mechanics. my rating loses 1 star for these reasons. Taking command of a warship and fighting toe to toe with huge gunships is amazing though, and the game is worth playing for this element alone.

  A Huge Leap In The Wrong Direction

I loved Assassin's Creed 1 and 2 and had high hopes for this one. Read a lot of great reviews and expected a lot, unforuntatly it didn't deliver. Clumsy gameplay, it's hard to get your assassin to jump where you want him to go. Stealth is almost non existant and far too many scenes and clips, if I wanted to watch a film, I'd put on a dvd. People disappear and reappear randomly. Very disappointed. I will admit though, graphics are great as are the multiple kill moves. 2 stars is being kind i think :(

A few bad reviews mark this games star rating down dont be fooled by them! ive played every assassins creed game and this is by far the best! its a long and detailed game and theres so much exploration and side missions to do to keep your hands full. I dont write many reviews and have chosen to for this game because it is simply a must buy!

  "Run Around Doing Nothing and Watching Cut Scenes" Creed

| | See all dandanger's reviews (2)

What an absolute joke. Worst assassins creed ever.

Game play broken down:
70% - Trying to follow the story and watching your character make absolutely stupid decisions in cut scenes.
10% - Loading screens and "Fast Travel"
15% - Running around doing the most useless and boring non-assassination "story building" tasks
5% - Assassinations

Rent it for a weekend and skip the cut scenes. Don't waste your money buying it.

Having played and very much enjoyed the first 2 this is a bit of a disappointment. The cut-scenes are too frequent, the graphics seem rushed and the control system seems to have gone backwards. Can't help feeling it's just been rushed to cash-in on the xmas market. Could have been a lot better. Tried playing it but just felt like I'd done all this before but with better settings and a bit more polish on the finished item.

  storylines way too short but great game

| | See all holby565's reviews (1)

the graphics and history,fighting is wicked but the storyline is the worse out of all the assassin creed games and way to short, the new assassin is terrible no where near as good as ezio from the 2nd, but still a great game in its own right but i hope the 4th has a better and longer storyline.

I have to say, for me, this is not the best AC game. The story is long and drawn out and I totaly agree with the first guys comments. AC2, Brotherhood and Revelations I couldn't find fault with and in all honesty it should have ended there and they should have quit while they were ahead. OK it is nice to be in a different era and the graphics are awesome, as usual. I am a massive dedicated AC fan but I felt disappointed with this latest installment and doubtful about continuing to follow any future adventures.

  Very Disappointing

| | See all Moonsith's reviews (8)

I have been a lover of the Assassin's Creed games since they first came out and i couldn't wait to get my hands on this when i first heard about its release but now i've got it i'm very disappointed with it. The fighting controls are terrible, in the first hour of playing the game i noticed a few glitches, 1 glitch was that bad where i had to restart cos i was stuck in this glitch that kept throwing me in to the air. When i heard it was a new era and Assassin i liked the idea but as much as i try it just don't hook me in to it like the others. It don't feel like an Assassin's Creed without Ezio in it plus some parts of the game i felt as if i was playing a new Red Dead Redemption game with mini games you play and the hunting and skinning animals i have to do.
Theres no real point with having Eagle Vision in this game, i've hardly needed to use it.
I was disappointed cos theres no hidden tombs to find, no puzzles to find with Eagle Vision.
