I always understood Brotherhood and Revelations as simpler, easier to produce add ons to AC2 to ensure an income for Ubisoft while they were developing AC3.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Brotherhood was a fantastic game, every bit as good as ACII and the assassin recruitment angle was a welcome addition. Revelations definitely felt like the formula was running out of steam, but the gameplay was still pretty solid and it gives Altair and Ezio a touching send off at the end. I adored Ezio as a character, and I'll miss him.

I really don't think it's fair to dismiss AC:B and AC:R. They may not be numbered sequels, but they're both worthy entries in the series canon.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

AssCBro and Revelations were both solid games, though I was disappointed that Revelations did little to nothing to advance the Desmond story. Also, those tower defense games were broken and annoying.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Tower defense was lame, but fortunately also completely avoidable (aside from the first tutorial one.) Just keep bribing heralds to keep your notoriety down and you never have to deal with it. Bombs and bomb making were a pain, I only really used them to get achievements or if a mission's full sync objective required it (I HATED the full sync thing in Bro and Rev. Let me do the mission the way *I* want to, dammit!) And adding the ability to ride a horse everywhere in Bro, only the completely remove them in Rev really sucked. But aside from those issues, they're both still good games, although 2 is still my favorite.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

The only Tower Defense that I did was the first tutorial one. Other than that, I managed to play the entire game without ever encountering it again. I also never made bombs unless the game forced me to (yes, I also disliked the "Full Sync" thing).

Desmond's story is actually the part of the series that I am most interested in, and I wish more stuff took place with him in the present day.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Ick no, being able to run around historic cities is the real attraction for me. If the whole Abstergo framing story didn't exist I wouldn't care one bit. I only like the virtual reality nature of it insofar as it provides a plausible explanation for all the video game-y aspects, (you don't lose health/die, that's just you losing sync with your ancestors' memories, the time jumps, etc.)

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I really enjoyed AC & AC II but the I got franchise fatigue mid way through Brotherhood, so never played Revelations. I used Wiki & Youtube to find out what goes on incase I play III which I might but not till 2013. AC was meant to be a trilogy and I just felt Ubi milked the thing too much.

^ They will continue to milk it until it is a dry husk. AC is Ubisoft's cash cow and they'll run with it until it is no longer profitable. I bet they've already began working on the next installment.

Ok, I still haven't played any of the Assassin's Creed games. Totally intend to, but I have an impressive backlog. Evil George Washington looks freaking awesome though.

CorridorDigital did a cool short based on the game:

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I honestly think a present-day Assassin's Creed game could be really neat.

I'd still like to see an Assassin's Creed set during the Warring States period of Japan in the late 1500s. The European presence was still pretty strong in Japan at that time (prior to the Tokugawa shogunate isolating the country). And Oda Nobunaga would make for a perfect Templar antagonist.

Looks like today through Friday on Steam you can get all of the games together for the low low price of $38.74. DO EET!

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Tempting. I have the first one for Xbox that I snagged for like 10 bucks like 3 years ago now. Maybe I'll throw it in this weekend. From what I understand it's not a particularly long game, but the sequels really improve on the original which has a lot of flaws. Will try to play with an open mind.

Seems like more of a console game to me. There's a 3 pack of the other games I don't own that is either coming or is already available for PS3 which sooner or later is going to be on a nice sale. I'll at least wait for Steam holiday sales before biting on anything. The multi game packs especially are always crazy good deals.
