I have a feeling it may end up being more complicated than that. I don't know, though. I'm not that much further than you.

Ooookay! I'm in Sequence 6, after playing for probably 6 hours or so, and this game is finally starting to pick up! About damn time!

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I love this franchise, but so far (Sequence 5) I am seriously not enjoying this game. I do not care about Colonial America. I do not care about Connor. I do not care about his story or his training. I do not care about doing 20 missions of walking from one place to another. For the first time in AC history I'm skipping cut scenes. I do not want to be running around in a goddamn forest for five minutes. I do not want to be hunting game. I do not want to be very very slowly steering a ship.

Were there protracted conversations in foreign languages in the old games? I'm pretty sure there wasn't?

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I felt the same way right up until I got into Sequence 6. It now feels much more like a normal AC game.

Not much you can do about the setting, unfortunately, but the gameplay has gotten back into the form that I was used to with the other AC games.

Kinda disappointed that a lot of promised stuff isn't in there. No free-roaming the seas, no random/procedural missions, not even canoeing.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Well, I just finished the game. Not bad, but I think ACII or AC:B is my favorite of the series - I don't like the changes to the combat (no more counter kills).

Done plenty of those, which resulted in "kill-streaks"

Well, then maybe I'm doing it wrong. But whenever I hit Counter, it just pushes them away - it doesn't do any damage, much less kill them.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

You're supposed to hit counter *then* attack to execute a counter kill. Hit 'A' (or 'X') to disarm, 'B' (or square) to throw.

The reason the game goes into slow motion when you successfully counter is because it's expecting a follow up command.

Ah. The vast majority of my counters must've not been "successful", then, because I got the slow motion maybe once in a fight, rather than on every counter.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Ah, you have to hold the button to counter now. Yep, changing that in Game #5 was totally fucking intuitive, Ubisoft.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I'm honestly not doing anything differently than I did in the previous games, and I'm having no trouble whatsoever with fighting or countering.
