    I'm off to pick up a copy of this from CEX today. Only just finished REVS but have an overwhelming urge to get stuck into this. I need me some more AC goodness.

    Edit: thank you cex, you gave me forty three quid for five games, four of which I paid less than a fiver for. Superb.

    Now to get stuck in to more AC! still have enough credit to grab black flag too. Score.

    Ignore the side missions. Unless you're an achievement-nut, you don't need to worry about them. Few of them are worth the effort.

    My god this is a glitchy mess, I cannot turn without seeing something odd happen, people are popping in and out all over the place. Who signed this off? I think the graphics overall were better in AC: Revs as well.

    Still, great bloody fun. Sequence 6 and I'm a proper Assassin with my costume and everything. Actually quite like Connor.

    I just didn't feel like I understood Conner. His aims are simplistic but he goes about it in the strangest ways, just because some glorified Christmas Tree Bauble told him to. I'm never sure why he trusts the people he trusts. I felt I knew Ezio, Edward and even Altair better.

    For me, AC3 is more about the world you're in rather than Conner, with even more focus that the other games on Desmond and the end of the trilogies overarching story. There is also a bit more depth given to the Templars, who have their side of the story fleshed out a lot more. The thing is, the vast majority couldn't give a flying monkeys about the series, and prefer the self contained story to be better, making AC3 a great one for fans of the story, but maybe not for everyone else. AC4 is better as a stand-alone story, in my opinion.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    Those are just some of the objectives that I hate. To them I say:

    FUCK... RIGHT... OFF!

    After a great buzz with AC IV (on the PS4), I picked this up on the PS3... fucking hell, what a stark difference.

    Played about an hour 20 of it, so far it feels like an MGS game - cut scene, learn how to walk, cut scene, learn how to climb, cut scene, zzz... The characters are completely boring and I've had one hard lock with it already (had to yank the power lead out of the PS3, not cool).

    Still, paid all of 5 for it, so I guess I'll see how it goes.

    @FuzzyDuck I'm struggling with it myself. Just lacks the magic and polish of other ac games. Definitely a weak point.

    I was never the biggest fan of the series, but it's a clear downgrade from II and at least I managed a few hours on Brotherhood before I chucked it. I'm considering ditching this if something interesting doesn't happen soon.

    @FuzzyDuck I loved 1 all through 2, brotherhood and personally really liked revelations. Can't get into this and I'm halfway through. It's like they got the work experience guys to make it. There's big chunks of dialogue missing, stuff goes unexplained, side missions are random and nonsensical. The game engine is a mess and it's quite ugly in places. I've not played it for weeks and really don't know if I'm going to go back to it. I really went in with an open mind as well, and there is stuff that's brilliant but...

    Don't forget tom gave this 9/10! I don't get angry at reviews like some twats on EG does but all I will say the AC3 review is terrible.

    Its worrying when people say the game is still glitching ages after release. (Another reason why all downloads for games is a shit idea)

    Sounds like the type of game I usually ditch!

    I'll give it another spin next week, but I've had absolutely no desire to go near it for my spot of gaming this evening.

    @FuzzyDuck Yeah man. Really disappointed with it. I went into it straight off the back of Revelations*, like, the next day, and the jump in quality was massive. I had to check the damn box to make sure I hadn't been conned , bought a cheap third party rip off instead like Assassassassin's Creed 3, with Kevin Kenway.

    Going to leave it for a bit also. Plenty of games on the shelf.

    *which unlike a lot of people, I really highly rate as the most polished and refined AC.

    @Wunty_Phyve

    I've never played Revelations! I made the mistake of playing Brotherhood back to back with II and burnt out on the series (nothing wrong with Brotherhood, was just too "more of the same" for me at the time).

    I've come from the PS4 version of IV to the PS3 version of III, so this is a complete shock at the drop in quality.

    As you say, plenty of other stuff to crack on with, so I'll save it for a rainy day.

    I'll have to move somewhere that has a monsoon season for it to rain enough.

    @FuzzyDuck Ha yeah. I know what you mean.

    Aye well 2, Bro and Revs need a good gap between. I left a year between each so they felt fresh. Prob not worth you playing Revs now but if there's ever a moment you get the urge to try it, I do recommend it. I think it's the one with the least amount of shitty action interludes that don't work with the game engine. No shitty Leo machines or anything. (I know it's got the tower defence bits but outside of the tutorial I didn't have to do one, quite easy to ensure you don't need to).

    IV sounds like it's worth a play though, so may ditch this and get that in a bit.

    Even so. I'm def getting hooded-man-running-over-rooftops fatigue.

    @Wunty_Phyve

    Hmm, well it sounds like a playthrough if/when I spot it on the cheap.

    I'd say what I loved about IV is the fact that it's a jolly (hoho) good pirate game. The world is great to explore, and it allows you to mix up what you're doing to keep it fresh.

    That said, a lot of the main missions are uninspired, tailing nonsense. Ubi have added the feature to rate the main missions, so I gave everything with a tailing section 1/5, and there's a few other forumites who have done the same.

    Here's hoping they get the message!

    @FuzzyDuck Got to say their mission have always been pretty shit, tailing especially, so sorry to hear there's loads more in IV.

    It's very frustrating, as with the AC games, their game engine and what they've built up they have the potential to create something fucking amazing. They're just not there yet.

    Although I have learned loads since playing them! Me and the Mrs watched Skyfall not long ago and at the beginning there's a bit of a city chase. The wife goes "where's that, looks a nice city to visit?". I of course recognise it as Istanbul and say as much. She goes "how do you know?".

    I of course admit it was because Revelations did such a cracking job of recreating the city, and lose a few cool points in the process.

    I should have just said mysteriously that it was because I used to be an assassin there. Instant bed+fun time then.
