So this actually the first Assassin’s Creed game that looks interseting to me, and I've never played any of the other ones. So I'm wondering, is this game a okay place to start? Or am I just gonna be lost and confused with the story?
This is probably the worst game in the series to start. There is very little tutorialization, and there are so many mechanics and systems that overlap.
This is rubbish. Everything is tutorialised at some point in the game. While the game doesn't hold your hand for the first 6 hours like the last one.
This is probably a pretty decent AC to start on provided you don't have a complete disinterest in boat combat.
The "story" stuff as far as the animus etc is just fluff so far, so unless it throws some big curves in the later part that i'm unaware of, you can pretty much ignore it and just understand that it's templars vs assassins and have a swashbuckling time.
Hey duders, I played AC 1 back when it was released, and while I enjoyed it, it was very VERY repetitive and that kind of turned me off of the series, even though I remember enjoying the story. But I've read a lot of good things about ACII, Revelations and Brotherhood (and bad things about III lol), and have been tempted to get back into the series but never actually did. Well, next week there's the release of PS4 here in Europe, and I pre-ordered ACIV because it looks absolutely amazing and I figure it's time I got back into the series.
So yeah, I don't remember practically anything about the story of AC 1 and I understand that while I might be a bit confused about certain bits on ACIV for not knowing the previous stories, it won't take away from the experience, but my question is: will playing ACIV ruin the previous games for me? Because after IV I was hoping to hop into ACII and the others (and maybe even replay AC 1 for the story recap, or just watch it somewhere).
(sorry for "hijacking" the thread with my own question, but it is kinda related, and I think it wasn't different enough to open a new thread)
AC 2 has some big revelations story wise that AC 1 never really gets to but sets up for. By the time its gets to brotherhood and revelations (never played revelations just speculating), it gets a bit more convoluted, specific and unimportant to the overarching templar vs assassins dealy.
As far as replaying AC1 I would just watch it, it's got to be pretty hard to go back to at this point and most of the plot stuff is vague and you need to go looking for it.
Honestly I can't really see this one ruining anything too major for you.
