The game was slightly better than DmC but overall felt like a beat em up than hack & slash the chain blade weapon is slow this time around giving the illusion AI being challenging a bit, the sound effects are good,but i overall didn't like the too dramatic scripted boss battles, the world feels empty & hollow at times & i couldn't wait for the demo to end, sorry this is the truth, IMO after so many years of GOW sony could have improved the game
If you weren't into god of war before then you wont be now, with the Online MP said to be underwhelming, i don't find anything appealing about the game
In the end it's just another button masher & gore game for fans of such thing, which is a shame really since santa monica have developed quite the repute, mainstream gamers & GOW cult gamers will love it, not sure about people like me who want challenging grunt enemies, fun combat with loads of weapons, live surrounding which lets you soak the atmosphere & less brainless button mashing… Expand
Average User Score: 6.9Jan 18, 2013Reviewed it for friends long back , hope it helps people here ,
So yeah played & completed Assassins Creed 3 , i guess it took me 14-15Reviewed it for friends long back , hope it helps people here ,
So yeah played & completed Assassins Creed 3 , i guess it took me 14-15 hours to complete the main story alone , Sequences are quite big & some missions are annoying at first till you get the hang of it , so here are my thoughts / review if you will of the game , I'm keeping it spoiler free as much as possible ,
- Great environmental graphics , good character models though the graphics for then could be a little better but still they are really good
-Desmonds missions are quite well done though they lack a map to guide but navigation is relatively simple so not a biggie
-The ending ties the story together very well so you don't find any lose ends to criticize
-Haytham is an awesome character introduced in the series , stole the show for me
-Audio is class , feels like you are living the revolution
-Rope darts are a joy to use , purchasable weapons help , swords , axes are really useful to killing big commanders in case there is no ammo or rope dart is used up
-Weak individual character build up except a few characters who are really nailed spot on , some characters storyline seem to take a odd turn and while not bad at all they aren't digestible
-Hunting is poorly inspired , they could have done so much better , the QTE events just take the fun right out of it
-Naval combat is a interesting concept & while it does work good to the point of no serious issue , complains do arise due to tight handling of the ship & navigating & defending the ship amidst of a enemy attack while rotating a confused camera is a annoying job
-The world doesn't encourage you much, to explore it's beauty , and it still feels like jumping from one sandbox to another
-Tomahawk is a overrated weapon , weapons available for purchase are overpriced
- Tree climbing is not a very helpful skill that it could have been & if not properly skilled the player is slowed down , and finding the 2-3 specific types of trees in a situation of danger is troublesome
Overall for a first outing by a 3rd person open world game set in colonial America it does a real good job of capturing all the important events while keeping you entertained , some of it's flaws aside , this is one game that any open world enthusiast and above a conspiracy theory nut should not miss , considering the ending i am glad this is my first assassins creed game purchase :p

Average User Score: 5.2Jan 16, 2013Played the demo of DMC , the new Devil May Cry / DMC 5 / DMC Reboot whatever , the combat is quite fun , there are so many diverse move setsPlayed the demo of DMC , the new Devil May Cry / DMC 5 / DMC Reboot whatever , the combat is quite fun , there are so many diverse move sets to use chaining combos , but this acts as a double edged sword as performing them during quick combat is quite annoying , since there are air attack , air shoots , air grabs , air pulls , air melee , air melee secondary , on top of that these have ground variants & also there is the added pain of 2 different types of dodging moves.
Emo dante is cool [ not bad as i thought ] , i played DMC 3 i guess but he wasn't that talkative but now he talks just the right amount , however when conversations happen , the dialogs are just trash talk compared to conversations i would expect from a title called DMC , consider the game as Spider-Man in a less that serious demonic world , the BGM for both the demo levels was decent , nothing exceptional.
The Graphics were awesome but after i turned off the game my eyes were a bit watery & felt some blur or sorts until i washed them .
I Would still choose Ninja Gaiden Sigma / Sigma 2 / Ninja Gaiden 2 as my favorite hack N slash action games , the deadly vibe around the atmosphere is just to brilliant along with the overall seriousness & urgency of situation.
DMC is good but areas feel empty , well at least in the demo anyway & lack of good BGM makes that even more noticeable , at least in Ninja Gaiden , rain , flowing water , lively forests covered up the fact that you are alone till the next group of enemies strike but here i got bored a bit , though the game is entertaining , but for me not worth the price capcom have slapped on it .… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Jan 16, 2013SEGA & Platinum Games Reign Supreme with MaXX Anarchy , Godwork m_(-_-)_m Anarchy Reigns brings back the fun in video games & that too at aSEGA & Platinum Games Reign Supreme with MaXX Anarchy , Godwork m_(-_-)_m Anarchy Reigns brings back the fun in video games & that too at a cheaper rate , Street Of Rage + Hack n slash brawling + awesome character + lots & lots of killer attacks which your fingers can actually memorize unlike a certain NT DmC Game.
Rampage Mode WTF is that , like i already didn't have enough trouble button mashing like in God of War , why was it taken up a notch by making me look at the screen & switching between mashable buttons , for instance it starts with lets say mashing X then it jumps to O then maybe a 3rd button , it depends , sometimes you are o0f the hook by just mashing 1 button , though i love the challenge to learn it ^_^
Tutorial & simulation mode help you to get a grip on the controls & are very helpful in learning the variety of awesome moves ,combos & rampage moves which are finishers of the game given a fancy term . I Also played online MP Simulation & it started with me killing 2 bots & then skynet stopped playing possum >_< , got annihilated 3 times ;_;
The story looks decent but it's the return of the PS1 old school brawler style is that what matter , controlling Jack feels like controlling a guy named smasher from one of my favorite PS1 games " Fighting Force "
Old school lives again & for $30 you get a masterpiece with a limited edition featuring BAYONETTA , no one in the world can go wrong with this game , if you are not getting it , it's your loss ---> WORLD… Expand
