The trailer running at 60fps is misleading advertising.

Wow, pathetic graphics? AC circle jerk is losing its steam. Looking forward to Syndicate. Unity did an incredible job at capturing Paris, especially if you've visited it in person. Recognizing a city is enough of a reason to buy it for me. Cannot wait to do the same in 19th-century London.

It's not so much the graphics but 'skippy' animations. Animations never looked 'right' to me in AC games.

Must admit this has my interest (again, mainly thanks to setting and characters). Will see what fellow gamers make of it or if it's just another paint by numbers Ubi game.

I wouldn't call the graphics "pathetic", that's just negative exaggeration. But there is no step forward from AC:U, so I would call them "hmm, ok" by today's standards. As Megion says, the game can still be fascinating to someone who likes the setting.

BTW, a recommendation for people who like open world games set in real locations, I enjoyed The Saboteur (EA, 2009) quite alot. It is set in a gameworldified Paris and you're fighting the Nazi Occupation with subversive and sometimes stealthy combat, climbing rooftops and riding cars and the usual stuff, very well done nevertheless.

Not watching this trailer... I'll wait to see the real graphics at the release date and I recommend it to everybody.

I know, but at least it should say "PC version footage" or something like that.

About the game


What's up?

    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (16 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (18 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (21 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (22 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (23 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (25 minutes ago)
