Ever since the first Splinter cell Ubisoft has treated Sony customers as 2nd class citizens, and this game is no exception. Problem: Very buggy! My PS3 hang at various points, and that's just the beginning. About 1/3 in the game a pretty serious bug kicks in and turn AC into a unplayable slide show. I am talking about 1-2 frames/sec here, no joke. NO it is not the PS3 firmware it's the game itself. There's a bad program loop escaped QC's detection (they should be all fired!), among several other quirks. This game shouldn't be out for another 3 months at least. But NO Ubisoft think we PS3 owners are idiots and can't tell a good game from a bad one...... and since they pulled that off with Splinter cell, Rainbox 6 and GRAW2 (all 2nd rate 360 ports!) so why not one more~! It's a shame as AC has potential to be a great game, but they blew it. I suggest fellow PS3 owners be united and boycott Ubisoft until they put their acts together, never give in by buying their cheap ports! I recommend anyone who's interest in this game just rent it, and save your money on other real PS3 gems, like Uncharted, R&C:TotF, CoD4!
I was about to buy the game but then i thought about it. There's too much hype going around and in the end that can b either a good thing or a bad thing. I played it 3 times. The first time i was like ok hopefully i wont b doing this same ol climb, sit down and listen, snatching, and killing, in the same fashion over and over again, I mean dont get me wrong, the graphics are above average and controls ain't bad but the gameplay is too repetitive. And it will grow old on u, specially when u gotta save 12 citizens in each city that are getting punk'd by guards over and over again. Oh yeah, if u save them u get a simple thanks which doesn't help much for putting your life on the line:/. Just rented and u'll see for yourself.
