Very nice animations and combat, but it looks lke another "wait for opening counter attack" combat as previous ones.

Anyways, I am more interested in the open area of the game and the hunting part.

I just hope that they improved the game as a whole. Better story and mission structure. Better economy system, because that was no more than just letting time pass by and buy new things.

Yeah, enemies just await their turn and then attack. I hate that shit.

The game looks more exciting from a cinematic standpoint. As far as enemies waiting for an opportunity to strike, that has to be done. Have any of you guys ever fought a group of people all at once? It usually turns into one guy laying down getting beaten and stomped and kicked until the police arrive. That's why they still do the one attacker or occasionally two at a time in movies. In the real world one man can't beat 10+ no matter how skilled he is.

Oh jesus christ...in the previous video they said 'He cuts through enemies like butter' yeah no shit. And now one of the devs said 'Soldiers don't stand a chance against Connor' again..no shit, i see that.

Oh.......that's a good thing? WHERE'S MY FUCKING CHALLENGE? :(

batman is how you do it. AC is far too "kill enemy, next, kill enemy, next" it's a bit stilted and boring. batman had them attacking randomly and in quick succession and in unison, that's what you want. give us the means to fight back against unfair odds. don't just queue up the enemy so you can defeat them individually...it's boring.

Yep! So much for the new redone combat system in ACIII. I'm sure they did and gave connor some awesome moves but enemies still await their turn like little sissies and i hate it. I was hoping so much for that to change, but if these dev diaries are anything to go by...they actually made it even more easy....wow...just...sigh.

Probably the only way to enjoy AC...and this is if you didn't watch the whole thing. Otherwise will get boring as well. :)

I'm still surprised how good this series sells. Guess the giant hype machine still works.

Meh. If I want intricate combat I'll play Tekken Tag 2.
Commented on 2012-09-13 18:43:46
Doesnt seem like its going to take a very interesting standpoint in the historical narrative...game looks quite cool though

Also, they go on about how he takes the side of "greater good" but then call him a brutal killing machine...Well, I dont really expect consistancy in this series

It's not hype you cynical bastard. It's been a great action/adventure series since the start. Not sure why theres so much hate towards ACIII because it looks phenomenal and most importantly unique when you compare it to all the drek thats out there.

hate is because a lot of people think these games are absolutely chore to play. Deal with it. :P

Looks good in the videos, but then again AssCreed1 do so as well...

Unique? LOL

Yes yes yes very nice. Make him a killing machine, a badass guys who can kill soldiers without breaking a sweat.

This game at least needs an option to make combat much harder.

This game will not have crouch and move, you know...like a REAL stealth game. something the series was going to be.
A stealthy assassin game, and yet no crouching, such nonsense.

Pretty sure someone crouching in public would make you look mad suspicious. Yeah yeah so does the clothing.
