i would give it a 9.5 but i gave it a 10 because there is no 9.5 and technically when your rounding a number to the nearest 10 if its like 95 its gonna round to 100 wow did i just do math while reviewing a game the graphics are awesome the story is awesome and its an assassins creed game what do you expect the combat system is as awesome as before if i had one or two complaints of the ac franchise they would be they stuck to 15th-16th century for to long and why cant they just decide what desmond looks like (warning please note that im taking words from a machinima video without the rights because machinima has no copyrights) first they decide lets make him look like ezio then his face molded into being circle like then give him a beard and change his head shape again he doesnt look that different in this game
I will be honest and say that I didn't finish the game. I beat all of the previous titles except the first one(sleep inducing). As much as Revelations really irked my soul, I had enough faith in ubisoft to redeem it, and make this franchise go out with a bang ... but they didn't. After 15 hours I just couldn't do it anymore. First off Conner, while being the most skilled Assassin out of Ezio and Altair, has the personality that is about as interesting as a brick. The story was not engaging what so ever, and after seeing the ending, I can say that im glad I shipped it back early. Seriously what is with this year and endings? At least Mass Effect 3 was entertaining up until it's pathetic ending. But playing a game with a boring story, boring character, and a weak ending just adds up to an epic fail. The only positive that I can give is that the game is stunning. But beautiful graphics is not a game make. Sorry Ubisoft but I no longer want to know what happens next, I am no longer intrigued, because the Assassin's Creed franchise is no longer intriguing.
I haven't finished the game yet, but from what I have played so far, I am very impressed. Before ACIII was announced I was unsure of the series being able to come back from the two mistakes known as Brotherhood and Revelations, but this game is at least on par with ACII, and I actually think I like it more.
