So it turns out your some guy in the future thats been taken to this facility where people want to unlock your DNA memory of your ancestors to get important information. That doesn't sound to bad i guess but when playing and your really getting into the action and gameplay and the game does this weird thing where it skips to a "more resent memory" and you get a feeling of wtf?? I wanted to kill that soldier or run up that wall and you feel really restricted. It can also pull you out of the memory and you go back to the facility and rest which is like someone has pressed a big pause button. Its doesnt need to be so complicated.
At the start of the game the training feels really forced and like they couldn't decide what they could do at some points. It has the worst intro of any game i have ever played and it has a feeling of one of them games thats going to take a while to learn and get into.. not a great start.
Graphically the environments are amazing! Not so much at first but on the later levels when you look over the cities. Every character but yours look poor but otherwise very good.
AI....... What AI. Seriously i went up to a group of soldiers and this one guy was at the front giving them a weird pep talk and i thought it would be funny to kill him and get them all chasing me, so i ran to him pulled out my big sword and killed him.. Nothing happened, they all just stood there as if nothing happened staring at me (this isnt a one off eather it happens alot). It sucks when you kill someone privately where no one can see (like some cool assassin or something) and you walk down the road and everyone starts running around calling you a murderer which happens all the time.. I just gave up having fun killing people because you cant do much without everyone in the whole map suddenly knowing about it. Oh and people just walk aimlessly around also like they have no personality, just a set route.
Revolutionary combat is boasted but you give up and just doing the easiest thing, bash the X button until everyone dies a very unconvincing death. Dont think they could be arsed with such tiny things as xbox live compatibility eather.
Even though these faults are screaming at you there are good points. The graphics, very good. The animation is very clean. The horses look very realistic. The game is very cool when your stuck in the action.
THE BEST BIT!!! Free-running its totally awesome, without it this game would already be in a bargain bin. If found myself saying screw the storyline and just going running across roof tops. This feature would be brill in a gta game.. but thats for a different time i guess lol.
Its not a bad game but its not good.. Never a classic. I feel a bit cheated out of a good game.
This is just my opinion, except for the AI, that really is piss poor.
