E3: AC3 commented gameplay

Ubisoft just sent us this the commented version of the E3 gameplay video of Assassin's Creed III, and this time the quality is much better too, with 30 fps encoding instead of the 24 from last week...

I'm tempted to actually buy this, but i'm still worried the world, characters and story wont be very interesting like they havnt been in the past games. Love the new traversal methods tho. And the snow looks great.

Very fluid, consider me impressed.

Haven't bought any of the AC series after 1 though, am I missing out at all?

Personally? No. the further you stay from ezio the better

Looks great. I'll be getting from a rental service as usual (never pay full price for games that are effectively SP only, except GTA).

KORNdog I think whether or not these are interesting or not is pretty subjective. I found the characters interesting, although only after Revelations which fleshed out Ezio and Altair more.

Hence why i said "personally?". Of course it is subjective...i just find it hard to recommend games i found so shitty.

Buy AssCreed 2 and skip all others. For me (and many others) second part is the best entry in series.

I loved the first one,but unfortunately it has been all downhill from there imo.I gotta say this one is looking good tho.Too bad the last one was so horrible that i prob will stay away from this one.Btw,Ubi used to be awesome....what happened to the good ol days?

Animations are still the same(which is good on some points) but really !! no footprints in the snow ........
They should look @ Lost planet to see how to make decent snow.

No, they've made all the animations from scratch for this one.

Yep and this game was released five years ago. Still looks pretty damn good. :0

So now we are able to kill animals (don't know who was asking for this)?
And dat shitty combat man, reminds me why i dislike this series. :S

There is footprints in the snow. It actually has a sort of terrain deformation thing going on. Hard to see in this footage, but you can see it elsewhere.

Agreed!

I have the entire series. Ezio didn't need 3 games. His character and motivations to do anything weren't interesting at all. Fortunately, the world that the terrible character is in is still fun to be in even Ezio gets so absurdly overpowered in Revelations when dying from falling off of buildings is more likely than in a fight. The low combat difficulty doesn't bother me though.

Game is looking impressive...PS3 version seems to be pretty solid this time...Not sure whether I will pick it up on PS3 or PC this time

1000 people working on AC 3, and still didn't put in footprints in snow.

It's baffling how having that many developers still results in relatively mediocre games.

I'll just stick to Hitman games for the social stealth stuff, and sandbox assassinations.

Sorry I only read your first message which didn't say personally.

What I do find annoying about these games is usually how boring it is exploring the cities. Climbing is always the same but they couldn't really do a great deal about that at the time. The new options look great.

I like how 2 enemies can now attack you at once, combat too was very very samey. Wait for a counter opportunity. If anything I found that way too easy. Infact, the most annoying thing about the series was in Revelations for me with the damn musketeers! The amount of times I've been shot while climbing.

Multi counter copied from Arkham City :D

Multicounter doesnt really change anything anyway. I can't imagine countering 2 guys is mechanically any different then countering 1. It will simply have a different animation. Just like batman. You're still only pressing the "counter everything" button.
Commented on 2012-06-15 04:53:34
I think this looks absolutely fantastic. I never finished the first AC as it was boring as hell, so much that I didn't give the other ones a chance at all. Seeing this vid has me really excited though. The snow deformation, which is cooler than simple footprints IMO, looks awesome. The combat does look similar to the combat in Batman...which was probably my favourite video game melee combat of all time, so that's a plus for me. The animations involved in navigating the trees are killer. The only thing that stuck out to me as being just horrible was his interaction with the butcher or whatever at the completion of his question. No animations for handing things back and forth is lazy as fuck.

Still, I'm quite excited for this.
Commented on 2012-06-15 06:01:09
looks okay, but I can't help thinking it will become boring after a few hrs.
Commented on 2012-06-15 08:06:56
I like AC creed games. This one looks great unlike the previous one.
Commented on 2012-06-21 09:44:40
I have played only AC 2 and one AC is enough for me. This looks okay, different environment is nice change but I bet that gameplay is going to be boring after few hours (like in AC 2). And props to trying to get environment as organic as possible.

without any explane is better

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The BF1 interface is literally the same thing. The only difference is you load a huge client to reach the UI instead of clicking on a bookmark. Guess which one is faster? (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And the like.. primary complaint that people had about Battlelog on PC was the plugin. It doesn't use a plugin anymore. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like being able to take stock of my favorites in a manner of seconds. And I don't need to load the client until I find a game I want to play. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea, really. It's much faster than loading a beast of a client just to look at a server browser or join a queue. Why would I want to waste time and resources before I actually need to *play*? (4 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Really? I was never a fan of launching the game through a web browser. The stats and everything else i was okay with. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Why do I want to load a huge game client just to check my favorites? Just to wait in queue? It doesn't make sense. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm scared of the new Battlefield UI. I think Battlelog works pretty great on PC and I'm worried that it'll have a negative impact on the population. (4 Hours ago)
