Does anyone else feel like assassins creed 3 is totally fucked. An hour or so in and this game seems terrible. Like really awful. And I love this series. What the fuck!!!!!

#2 Posted by Aegon (5712 posts) -

Elaborate?

#3 Posted by Sackmanjones (4752 posts) -

Boy you sure sound like a reliable source

#4 Posted by Zaccheus (1798 posts) -

Playing it right now and it seems fine.

#7 Posted by Demoskinos (15034 posts) -

A convincing argument if I've ever heard one. EVERYONE ABANDON SHIP.

#8 Posted by tennesseemcvay (17 posts) -

Everything seems super linear, the combat doesn't seem very well explained, especially the shooting. I don't know maybe I am wrong and it will get better soon but as of right now I just feel super confined by a game in which previous games in this line were extremely open world. I'm not trying to shit on the game, just asking for somebody to talk me off the ledge here.

"Not trying to shit the game"...

Btw, this should be in the Assassin's Creed III section, not General Discussion.

sorry mean't to say, "Not trying to shit on the game"

#12 Posted by Darklight (212 posts) -

@tennesseemcvay: Well if I remember correctly, Assassin Creed II first hours were pretty linear too and you were stuck in Florentine for a while. I did not play AC III but I guess it's to help setting the new era and character?

#13 Posted by Jimbo (9881 posts) -

If it still feels confined after another hour or so I'd start to worry. The AC games often have a linear tutorial section at the start.

#14 Posted by Vinny_Says (5721 posts) -

To all concerned: Just wait until you hit the first twist; your jaw will literally fall to the ground.

That's exactly what you said. The other user was mistaken.

Sounds like any other AC game. They have so much shit in them and they have to cater to new players to some extent. I quite like a slow start anyway to games as big as the AC games.

What? That's what you wrote. You know what? Think through before posting your opinion with mistakes.

Whoa calm down there buddy. I didn't go back and edit anything, I just assumed that I was wrong when you tried to correct me and as it turns out, I wasn't.

OP is clearly a Templar.

Welcome to contemporary AAA gaming. Would you like another checkpoint with that "interactive experience", sir?

#21 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Send me your copy and I will determine if this game is truly boned or not.

#22 Posted by Commisar123 (1796 posts) -

My issues right now are technichal in nature

Sorry if it came out the wrong way, didn't meant to.

The framerate is fucking horrible. Playing on the PS3.

#25 Posted by MegaLombax (398 posts) -

An hour is too short to judge the game from a series which is known to have quite a bit of length to it. Play more before passing judgement.

#26 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7099 posts) -

I'm 2 hours in with zero issues. Not sure what game you're playing.

That sounds about right, from my previous experiences with the Assassin's Creed games, they have always performed worse frame-rate wise on the PS3.

Yeah none of the games have really had very good performance. A lot of framerate drops and tearing.

Unless he watched one of the trailers, where it's pretty much spoiled.

#30 Posted by LobotomyKing (60 posts) -

just started playing and am in boston and the game feels like it is struggling to have everything on screen lots of hitching and a poor draw distance for a lot of the finer details its really showing that consoles are aged and cant handle the latest games anymore maybe its just my copy though but i have a few problems like a seperate loading screen for your weapons when previous games just had a weapon wheel that you could use on the fly, but other than that seems fine i mean this game has to open up because eventually theres gunna be sea combat right

I don't get it, what's the huge twist? That you get to play as the father?

Doesn't seem that jaw-dropping.

uhh keep playing, you'll see.

#33 Posted by doobie (605 posts) -

i agree with the OP. it never worth waiting more than an hour before leaping onto the internet to express your opinion of a game.

#34 Posted by hollow96 (17 posts) -

Assassin's Creed 2 had you delivering paintings and completing other menial tasks during the first hour and still turned out to be a great game, so forgive me if I don't take your 1 hour formed opinion too seriously.

His post hasn't been edited...

According to another post, the first 6 hours or so are tutorial, so if you don't like it after that...

Well, I think it'd be safe to assume we have a stinker on our hands.

#36 Posted by Terramagi (1159 posts) -

Y'know, every other game would be shit on if you had to play it for a quarter of a fucking day before it became fun.

Why does AC3 suddenly get a pass.

#37 Posted by mordukai (7163 posts) -

Dude. you've only been playing for an hour. I didn't like Fallout 3 and Skyrim but was after about 20 hours or so. A game as big as AC3 should be given more then hour before deciding it's not what you wanted.

#38 Posted by Demoskinos (15034 posts) -

Now I'm just interested in this "twist" as I have no intentions of actually playing the game I just wanna know what it is.

Same here, I mean it can't be that big of a twist can it?

Looks more like you did not pay attention to where it clearly explains how to shoot. And the first part seems more like story.

@tennesseemcvay: That's what tends to happen when you jump on the hype train, it never slows down and constantly increases your expectation levels. Also when so many people are lined up constantly throwing comments like 'I can't f*cking wait for this game' or 'I will give my left nut to get this game early' it makes it harder for you to appreciate that game any more instead you will look for flaws just to be in the minority where your voice will actually be heard due to little competition when you are the opposition!

Ummm what?

#43 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Is there no big open citys anymore?

#44 Posted by sheik3008 (20 posts) -

@Zaccheus: This made my day,

give the game time to open up it's not like it's a 6 hours game....hopefully

Boston and New York are both fairly big. They are smaller than, say Rome or Istanbul, but they feel much more lived in and vibrant.

#46 Posted by RockinKemosabe (619 posts) -

I remember the first hours of Brotherhood being kind of boring. Then it got quite good afterwards.

How about the wild areas do they just connect the citys or are there towns and such in those areas

#48 Posted by deerokus (559 posts) -

Yeah the AC games always have tortuously long, slow, restricted tutorial sections/openings.

Punctuation is your friend!

Onwards though I agree with you. Having to load up a screen to switch your weapons is slightly annoying but honestly how often did you really do that in the previous games? Once I got the crossbow in Brotherhood and Revelations I never switched anything out.

I am glad to see Health potions gone (if they are there I haven't gotten there yet) as you almost never needed them anyways.
