Never gonna preorder another Ubi game unless I notice some changes to their practices. Thankfully I have The Order 1886 for my Victoria London fix next year :)

Finally got round to buying this. It's been an odd experience so far. My first 10 minutes of the game, I played for a while, it crashed, I restarted the game, played for a while the controls locked up. Not a very good start. But I persevered, and I'm actually rather enjoying it. The story, while a little bit of a rehash of AC2, is more insteresting than any of the stories since then. The "current time" story isn't too intrusive to the experience, offering interesting little breaks rather than confusing, boring and tedious breaks like it has done for a long time. I'm enjoying the gameplay, I think combat is much improved, I like the level of customisation included, and I really like Paris.

It feels like the guys who came up with it made the best Assassins Creed game since AC2, then when it came to actually building it they handed it to a bunch of interns, and then they handed it up to corporate level and they were like "got to have some micro transactions in there, eh. A mobile phone app too!" It's sad, because I can see the potential and that will keep me playing, but it'll never be the game it was meant to be.

Same thoughts here. Best AC game imo (storywise and gameplay tweaks) since 2 but it was just a mess technically.

Seriously depressing how many people couldn't look past the launch issues of this game. There's still technical issues here and there, tbh I barely notice them anymore, but the actual game is a masterclass for the AC series. The level design on some of these missions is everything I've ever wanted since they made the first Assassin's Creed game. Actually making you think tactically about how you're going to infiltrate an area and how you're going to get out before you do the thing you're supposed to be doing. Ammunition of stealth items is so low you can't spam them to get rid of guards anymore, so every time you consider using a bomb or a dart, every time you see a locked door, you have to really think about whether it's worth it or whether there is some other way. I've died in combat in this game more than I've died in total in all the AC games I've played (which is almost all of them), which gives you a flavor of how seriously they took people saying the combat has been too easy for too long. I smoke bomb my way out of most fights.

I beg to disagree with that you can't spam stealth items. I basically finished all the coop missions and heist solo, which are harder than the usual campaign missions, via spamming smoke grenades killing all the enemies XD and there are tons of belt which caters to ammunitions especially legendary ones. I welcome the harder combat but it's much infuriating this time around since the frame rate dips a lot and it doesn't help that I played the superb (gameplay wise) Shadows of Mordor before this.

Is this game fully patched yet. Is frame rate fixed. When it's finally ready post the news in the thread then i finally buy it, on sail of course. I'm not paying full price on this train wreck. Shame I've been waiting for them to tackle France during there revolution over the monarchy for year's. Better luck next time Ubisoft.

I played the first one on the Xbox 360 awhile back and liked it a lot. I haven't played any of the other Assasins Creed games, but I might check this one out some time.
