Am I the only one....

#1 Posted by TheStandardToaster (189 posts) -

Am I the only one that loved this game? I feel like after the reactions to this game I am. Of course I had only one major glitch. I recently S ranked this game and loved every second of it.

#2 Posted by LiquidPrince (16181 posts) -

Nope, I loved it too. People are reacting like this, I feel, because they think it's supposed to be the last game, or the last game with Desmond and that the ending didn't resolve much. But I look at it as another cliff hanger ala AC2 and ACB. So the ending makes me excited for the next AC sequel.

@LiquidPrince:

It may be more because the game's a big AAA game in a long-ish running franchise or something like that. Also:

OBLIGATORY!

I really enjoyed it as well. It really bums me out how people talk shit about it.

I had issues when I got a game breaking bug in the ninth chapter. So I had to give up.

I enjoyed almost every bit of it. I had a great time with it! :)

Ya I will admit the desmond ending was poor but I got so much enjoyment of the game it didn't matter to me. Running around the frontier, collecting feathers, the naval combat was all very fun to me. I went back to revelations to see how much the mechanics have changed. That games combat is horrible. The janisseries are just a hassle not a challenge. The running felt like he was running on nothing. The mechanics in AC3 were improved a lot.

Yeaaaah, I didn't enjoy it. And it had nothing to do with any sort of glitches. I couldn't pick out one single mission that stood out as memorable, and I only played it about a month ago.

I've only played a little bit, but it didn't grab me at all in my time playing (which I will admit is about two or three hours). I think I may just be burned out on the AC experience, a feeling I think many people share and may explain the widespread annoyances.

Ugh

#12 Posted by TheStandardToaster (189 posts) -

Its funny to because I hated revelations. I was burned out on AC but this game just grabbed me. Similar to Red Dead Redemption. Except I enjoyed the side content much more in AC3.

I liked AC 3. But the sequences where you're playing as Desmond were bullshit and the ending was...bullshit.

This is pretty much how I feel too, ending got me eager to see what the next asscreed will be about.

At this point I'm convinced that anyone who says "Am I the only one..." is just messing with us. Using it as your subject line is on another level entirely.

AC 3 was a pretty awful game IMO. I was disappointed with how buggy and unfinished it was. At least at launch anyway. The missions were pretty forgettable and boring as well. Too many eavesdropping and chases going on. Connor was a pretty dull character and I preferred Haytham. The convoy trading stuff was also pretty pointless and I didn't care for the homestead missions. I enjoyed the ship battles and a couple of the peg leg missions.

There's just so many useless mechanics, the story has a few key high points but for the most part crawls at a snail's pace and then speeds up way too fast at the end. Connor just plain sucks as a character. It's the little things that make AC III such a disappointment. It was just OK, that's my take on it. Didn't hate it, didn't love it, left feeling like it could have been so much more.

If I had a dollar for every time someone posted a thread title with "am I the only one" in it...

Anyway, I liked the game. It wasn't as good as II or Brotherhood, but still found it to be enjoyable.

I didn't LOVE it, but it was OK. The plot of Connor was pretty good but Desmond's story fell apart around... 5 minutes into AC1?

Well, in AC1, there was honestly still hope for Desmond's story because nobody knew the completely stupid direction they were going to take it in. But yeah, once you hit AC2 territory and get into bullshit precursor races and world-ending cataclysms, the series was fucking stupid.

#22 Edited by Camoufrage (84 posts) -

@BisonHero: You're right, actually. Back in AC1 it was just evil company takes Desmond because war plot, huh? It still had some kind of potential, though still worthless nonetheless because no one cares about Desmond, its the ancestors that matter.

#23 Posted by BisonHero (7070 posts) -

@Camoufrage: Yeah, the ancestors have always been the part of that series that wasn't dogshit, but at least the STUNNING DESMOND REVEAL at the end of AC1 was vague and open-ended in a way that allowed for some cool possibilities. But every STUNNING DESMOND REVEAL after that just spiraled the present-day storyline further into absurdity.

This game couldn't even massage my prostate to orgasm. To each their own though. Fuck it.

#25 Posted by TechnoSyndrome (961 posts) -

I didn't enjoy the way they simplified the gameplay, the mission design, and I think the much more open areas pretty much kill the free-climbing aspect of the game. Stopped like half way through the game because I just wasn't having fun.
