In a shocking shacking revaluation

Sorry, pet peeve.

Currently playing through AC: Revelations but having a hard time staying interested despite loving AC1 and 2. I just cannot stand Ezio's voice, the fake italian accent is killing it for me.

Probably gonna pick it back up after I get through the second play through of Borderlands 2 and Dishonored I got over the Steam sale.

Iirc, George Washington is a Templar, i.e. one of the major villains of the series. Calling it America-worshiping does seem like the reviewer didn't even finish reading the promotional materials.

I enjoyed the parts out of the Animus where Danny the snarky English researcher guy was explaining to Desmond how selfish intransigence from the colonists caused the British Civil War of the Americas, and Desmond was going "no, but, coz freedom, and umm, shut up!"

That's exactly how it went down in the game.

AC2 ended with a fistfight against the Pope in his secret underground lair beneath the Vatican.

Minor historical inaccuracies are to be expected within the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Finished the game last week, but I have mixed feelings about it. First off, relevant to the article they tried to plug a lot of real history in it with stuff such as an actual play from the 1700s being acted out line by line in the background during the first mission. Farking awesome. Lay outs of cities and architecture was also layed out as best they could while they tried to make it entertaining. Buildings, people, land marks all had readable histories. The intent of immersion was wonderfully pulled off, including the wilderness that had intuitive and natural looking tree paths. It was also pretty fair on who to blast. My favorite line is when Connor calls out Sam Adams on owning slaves. Later in the game he threatens Washington, and Paul Revere's ride is hilarious. I read a review by someone in England where they state they were never once offended and they wanted to know how Americans felt about those portrayals. After all the founding fathers are deified over here. The killing people game play has been really well defined and is easy to pick up, and easy to master.

What I didn't like:
Most reviews I read online were pretty good. Any rando joe review that was negative seemed to not give credit to all that I listed previously, and how the game is absolutely beautiful. Legitimate complaints (that i shared sentiment with) were that the stories were hardly linked, Connor's reason to exist and Desmond's reason to relive his memories are incredibly weak, Connor never matured and never really "grew" as a character (unlike Ezio), and the free running is still glitchy (might be the PS3 version though).

Farking great game, but you really only have 4 different areas to explore unlike previous games that had multiple cities that had very different architecture, design, and purpose.

Founding fathers know him by name and chat with him? C'mon! The assassins are supposed to be on the fringes of history while directly effecting it, not hoisting the flag at Iwo Jima. Why is Valley Forge in the Northwest!?

I think Connor's reason to exist and Desmond's reason to relive his memories are clear, and important. Connor had the key to the precursor temple, they had to relive his memories to find what he did with it. I agree that he never really 'grew' as a character though. I would count the tree running against it, though, since you can see from a mile away the unnatural looking branches that solely exist to allow you to run through the trees. I had hoped that all trees had branches you could grab.

Occasionally I had important targets spawn in inaccessible places, like in the middle of a tree, which was frustrating. There seemed to be more bugs than previous ones.

However the best thing about the game was the naval warfare side of it. I could sit on the ship having a fight all day. If they could just take that part of the game, move it back 100 years and add hundreds of Caribbean ports, and make it like Sid Meier's Pirates, but without the old age onset, and the more cartoony elements, and mission to find lost relatives, and instead make a very detailed and more realistic piratey game then I'd buy it all over again.

He's not a Templar, but he's certainly not presented as in an unmitigated positive light. You can talk to him after the end game and Connor chews his ass for being a hypocrite.

Me too. I loved it but I think Ubisoft fell off from the high quality of the Ezio trilogy. I do hope they do a similar trilogy with Connor. Next up: French Revolution.

Oh it's definitely clear. I prefer the mystery and reveals of the previous two where the character had an absolute wtf moment happen at the end that left the player reeling. It's just that I didn't want to play 40 some hours just to find out he left it in a grave outside his house. I thought it was a little weak is all.

I did not have those glitches, those sound awful.

I thought the naval warfare was great too, for something thats not even a main focus in the game they made it the best 3rd person naval warfare game by far.

Hells yeah. That would be fantastic. I like that the Marquis de Lafayette ended up being one of Connor's best pals.

I kind of wanted a Carribean revolution mission set in the game, once I saw the map with a ship line going to the islands.

Actually, haven't the developers indicated that any named person in the game you kill is a real person, and the date of their death corresponds with historical records? Sure, the story going along with the game is punched up a bit, but still a pretty impressive attention to detail.

Ok, which one of you farkers wrote this in the original artistic comments:

"I agree with this editorial. Video games have a long history of distorting history.

The Mario Brothers franchise: A completely inaccurate portrayal of the experience of Italian immigrants to North America.

Donkey Kong: A pathetic attempt to explain the plight of apes in central Africa and elsewhere.

The Grand Theft Auto series: Not an accurate depiction of the criminal lifestyle, or corruption in the police force, or the effects of throwing a pipebomb at a group of Hare Krishna while riding a dirt bike on a city sidewalk.

Won't someone think of the children?"

Definitely, I think one of the missions you protect GW during an assassination attempt. It's just after all of the FF that know you in the game, sharing a horse with Paul Revere, exploring Boston with Sam Adams I felt he was way to directly in the spot light. I always thought the purpose of the game was to make a conspiracy story and have someone who could have acted on the fringes of history for unresolved historical deaths. If this guy did any two of these things he would have a 5 story tall monument.

This. The games are supposed to be 'History as it really happened, not as told by the Templars/Abstergo'. That said, I think they went a little bit overboard in some places injecting Conner into events, most notably commanding the troops at Lexington and Concord. Maybe it's due to feeling closer to American history, having studied it much more in-depth in school than say, 1400s Italy or the Holy Land during the crusades.

...but they didn't inject him in the one part I really wanted to do. No sneak attack across the rivier on Christmas made me sad.

I definitely agree with where you're coming from, but I think they sidestep it with Conner's falling out with the Patriots towards the end. I think threatening to kill Washington for messing with his people didn't do much for his relationship with all of those guys. They were using him and his desire to protect his people to do their dirty work in service to their cause while screwing him over behind his back, and then he fades into the background following the end of the war. Plus he was an Indian, so yeah.

And he didn't really know that many of the founding fathers. Adams, Washington and Lafayette mostly.

But also at this point in AC history. The Assassins were not really a brotherhood so to speak in America. So Conner was not taught how to be a true assassin like Altiar and Ezio. I looked at it as I played the game as they, the Founding Fathers, saw him and could use him as a soldier for special missions no one else could. Conner being the first Black Ops soldier in a way.

And to point out this was not the first time an Assassin worked for the government / people in power. Ezio's father did the same as shown in the ACII tie in prequel movie.

2012-11-30 10:32:00 AM  
Meh, I grew weary of the games when they pretty much strayed from actually being games about assassinations. It's become more of a swashbuckling game, which I wouldn't have a problem with it if the combat mechanics weren't ass salad.

'Hi, I'm Ezio... perhaps you've seen me wandering around in my obnoxious getup that I should never be able to obfuscate in. I pop in and out of combat in a billowing cloud of my own gay as people wait in a single file line for me to counter-kill over and over. And if I'm overly lazy I can just have one of my minions, who are stealthier than I am now, make the kill for me as I laugh. Have you seen my hometown? I call it Assassinsville... you can recognize it by the symbol of my secret society chiseled in marble on the central square fountain. Grab a souvenir, have your picture drawn next to the Altair statue, family fun for all!'

These last few games looked like they might have gone back to their roots a bit... but no, not really. The ship combat interests me, and the outfits in Liberation change the gameplay up. But you're still doing useless side missions more than you're planning or doing assassinations, they still have no idea what to have you do with your money, and Desmond is still so unlikable that concentrating on him is a chore. I can see why they haven't even thought of implementing more modern settings for gameplay, because the combat mechanics would look even more ridiculous.

I remember people wearing blue uniforms but I thought they were militia. I don't remember hearing anyone speak German (at least not as obvious as the Germanic Crusaders in AC1).

yves0010: Ben Franklin as well, at least in my game he knew him. But yeah, I saw that too but it never bothered me at all that he knew and worked with these people.


There was old put and I think another general, not to mention the Boston Tea Party. It bothered me, but that is like my opinion man. I can see not being bothered by it too. Like I said, I really liked the game but I thought it delved away from what I thought were the general rules of the series.

YodaBlues: Currently playing through AC: Revelations but having a hard time staying interested despite loving AC1 and 2. I just cannot stand Ezio's voice, the fake italian accent is killing it for me.

Probably gonna pick it back up after I get through the second play through of Borderlands 2 and Dishonored I got over the Steam sale.

/BONERFART


Revelations is a just okay game for the most part but when BIG EVENT happens I was actually pissed and forgot about all the side missions and just burned through the rest of the main quest.

And Borderlands is great but I got hit with the bug that wiped all my stats. I'm not playing again until they fix that.

To anyone commenting about Connors growth: AC2 was built for a trilogy from the word go, so they had a lot more wiggle room with it. They also had a lot more 'space' since it was set far away in time and distance and culture.

I sort of get the feeling AC3 is a stand alone game, and that they're trying to wrap up the Desmond story in the next few years.

Has anyone bought/played this on the PC? I'm curious as to how bad it is, but I'm waiting on a sale. Did Ubi DRM rape it again?

I really do not have a personal hero out of the revolutionary era, but I tend to favor all of them. But I have to say, out of the 3 main assassins from the AC series (not counting Liberty because I haven't played it yet). Conner is the best out of them all. Altiar is close second and Ezio is 3rd.

MAJOR SPOILERS FOR AC3 AHEAD


That's my biggest complaint about AC3, really, that they didn't 'wrap up' Desmond's story, or more specifically the present day story. They've so blatantly set it up for follow-ups it's not even funny. Desmond is 'dead'(yeah, sure), but we're not really sure what Juno is going to do now. And they didn't close the book on Conner either, he's specifically told but Juno "You'll make a difference again." I was hoping that we'd see the main, present day AC story, which I actually enjoyed, all wrapped up, and they'd be free to do what some people have been clamoring for, just making straight up period pieces with other Assassin characters after being freed from the restraints of the Animus framing. But nope. They're going to stretch out the present day plot and we're likely to see more of Conner, either through Desmond, his dad, or some other mechanism. Bah.
