Assassins Creed gameplay is really repetitive and has too many cut scenes. I mean they are fun and worth playing because it is cool to be able to climb everything and anonymously murder people, but there is much better out there.
I would say that you try playing Prototype. This game is assassins creed on steroids.
If you think you might like an RPG you should play oblivion, best fantasy game to me. Prob best period, and I cant wait for the next in the series (SKYRIM) to come out.
You can be a good or bad in Oblivion, but if you want to take that to the next level you should try the Fable series.
Wow, only one of you guys played the beta?
The Beta was online only and it was unbelievable.
Unlockable characters, gun skins, leveling system, new weapons, etc.
I was never a fan of Gears online myself because of how terrible matchmaking is in the first two. It is even worse than matchmaking in Halo 2.. However, that is why they made the beta so they could make online perfect. There is public and ranked matches with different game types. Public gets you into a game almost instantly. Ranked searches for people close to your level like madden and takes a lil longer.
Too bad you guys missed the Beta period, but at least you will not be suffering of withdrawls until the fall release!
