Fair

Ubisoft is out of their minds.

I dont know whats going on at that studio anymore but it seems they have no idea how to make something entertaining. In fact it seems the only thing theyre good at anymore is making games that are visually stunning. However, when it comes right down to the only reason the game is in the system (good gameplay) they always seem to collapse hard. This game reminds me far too much of all the awful things that made me turn away from today's Assassins Creed series. I say today's because the last two good AC games were ACII and Brotherhood. Ubisofts sick idea of stealth is beyond anything that could strike the surface of making sense.

The Good - Great graphics, stealth take-downs are pretty satisfying. Gliding is fun when it works.

The Bad - Just about everything else. Animals are made of kevlar so have fun hunting. Also in every other battle, your bullets seem to made up of hugs and kisses. Maybe its all the smack these druggies are on. Or maybe its just typical Ubisoft BS. Traveling is still very tedious. Apparently this country you play in can't afford anymore than five vehicles in a 40 mile radius.
The payback you get on Vaas was just not justifying at all. I felt like I was playing Homefront all over again. All these terrible things happen and yet no good vengeance was done. It was just a lame last battle for that character.

Is Ubisoft the new EA? Not giving a flying meth pipe about what they're giving the fans, just pumping out titles for the next dollar? Whats worse is the ridiculously over crowded band wagon these so called hardcore gamers are on.

I can't even look forward to the new AC IV or the long awaited reboot of Thief because this company is just too sketchy these days. A+ on graphics and at least being innovative in some ways. Have to give them a D- on gameplay though. One last thing. After seeing how broken the stealth was in Dishonored and how broken the stealth CAN be in Far Cry 3, I think it's safe to say these two animals just don't mi

Very Good

Fun game but challenging.

Although I enjoyed the game, I though it to be a little challenging as I got deeper into the story line. Great graphics, easy to navigate. Will probably rent this game again.
