Ubisoft unveils Assassin's Creed, Ghost Recon trilogy boxset

Postby Maximus T » 31 Aug 2013, 13:56

I have all three Ezio games still, but I haven't played Ghost Recon before, so I may give that trilogy a go. I noticed that the scores slowly deteriorated over time, not by much, but it still raises a point I have been pondering upon:
The main reasons that scores for games of the same franchise go down as more titles are released is that we expect more from said games, but don't neccesarily get it. Anyway, what I am really trying to get around to asking is how you are going to calibrate your scoring systems for next generation, when the overall quality of a lot of games is likely to be higher, almost immediately?

the problem with an Ezio pack is it means you're going to get 3 very similar games, if they included 1 and 3 instead then there would at least be more location and plot variety

Great idea for those coming late to the party, some quality games, pointless for me though as I own them all already

I have just completed AC2 again and still can't understand how people can say it's better than 3 or that Ezio's a better character. Almost everything about it is worse than 3, it was just repetitive, boring and frustrating (I still got 100% synch and got all the achievements though). The story is just : kill him, follow him, kill them, etc.; there's no plot (until The Apple makes an appearance), there is basically no Desmond story unlike in 3, and Ezio is a terrible assassin. He's arrogant, childish and selfish; he's only killing those Templars for revenge, not because he understands The Creed and what the Templars are doing is wrong. He only wants to be an assassin because it's an easy path to finding those that killed his family; even when he defeats Borgia at the end, the only thing he mentions is his family, not that he's stopping him because he believes that what The Templars are doing is wrong.

Connor, however, is mature, deep, philosophical and understands the true threat that the Templars pose (as he makes clear when he kills them, which Ezio doesn't). Connor is the first true assassin (Altair didn't have a clue what was going on, so doesn't really count, he was still better than Ezio though). You might like Ezio's bad-man attitude better, but you can't tell me he's a true assassin like Connor is.

I'm in the process of researching the games so I can right something which will hopefully convince you all why 3 is better. I'll try to be objective, but ultimately games aren't. However, I doubt anyone would be able to defend 2 when they realise the true differences, that I will make clear.
