    Yeah, I knew this game was going to be either a huge flop or huge hit, I called it! This is exactly what a lot of these reviews are talking about, it could have been one of the biggest hits if it focused on different areas. Oh well, I'm glad I decided to get Call of Duty 4 first and wait for this than vice versa, because now I know it's not that great.

    Oddly enough, Game Informer gave it a 9.5/10 and Gamepro gave it a perfect 5/5...might have to give this a rent before I buy it.

    well it's only 10-14 hours of game play, so you could beat it in the time you rent it....

    I have no idea how good it is but in the IGN video review they gave their reasons for their score: repetative gameplay, kinda pointless missions, and a stupid backstory that is strangely revealed at the beginning of the game.

    They said the actual assassination missions were good though. Also climbing buildings and stuff.

    So, what?.. is IGN is the decider of what games are truly good these days?

    I'm still getting this game, it scored very high everywhere else, including Gamespot.

    well gamespot usually scores Wii games low and 360 games high, so I guess they like graphics?

    IGN seems to score fairly evenly.

    idk, might be great might be just o.k.

    well the review from ign said that the gameplay and the levels seem to repeat them selves often........they also mention that the game is amazing at the beggining.....but repeats itself later through...........which leads me to belive that sites that gave it a highscore only played the biggining

    You can't really know for sure, unless you actually read them.

    Gamespot has some pretty biased editors on the team, as well as IGN, and 1UP, and some editors can be way too picky about things. There's some IGN Editors that I would never read from, cause some are just ridiculous.

    This game is going to be allot different in PC, and obviously better.

    A 7,7 is very low for a game with so many expectations..
    Although IGN's score isn't that important.

    LoL
    show proof
    just because a game scores low it means the reviewers are bias?
    rofl

    and what would they even be bias towards? non assassin games during the crusades?>

    Yeah I played it

    The repetitiveness of this game is really staggering. Im up to the third assassination and found its really the same thing in different settings. Then you realize you have to kill 6 more just like this. It's a okay game, they just need to add about 10 more different activities into the investigations. And a day/night cycle, i mean seriously, it's an assassination game.

    Faith in Gamespot-1

    Oh dear me, please show me wear I said they were biased because of a low score. [​IMG]

    I recall only saying there are a small handful of biased editors on the IGN, Gamespot, and 1UP staff, in general (due to their own preferences)... not because of an average game rating for A-Creed.

    Try reading next time, before shooting your dumb mouth off.
