If you haven’t ordered Ubisofts Renaissance Masterpiece, Assassins Creed Brotherhood (and if not, why not?) here is a message from our front-line reporter DJ Camster. He would have said more but the Animus has him now and its grip is too strong for him to wrestle back control…….
ACB Mini Review (and some rambling)What can I say guys….. I’ve played 3 hours of AC Bro and man oh man, I didn’t think they could better the 2nd game but this game just keeps on giving…… in the famous words of the commentator as Michael Owen slotted home the one of his three against Germany in the now legendary 5 – 1 win…. “This just gets better and better and better…” This is a must have game…. Game of the year contender….. unlike Fifa11 this is a 10/10 game, though I’d still give it 9.5/10 as you got to give the producers scope for growth right….
Now due to my PS3 dying on me I never got to finish the 2nd game as I have so many other games to play and I lost the 70% I’d completed before, but I will now having started Bro’Hood have to take some time off and give 2 and good thrashing…. so bearing this in mind, I’m guessing the 2nd game ended with Ezio talking a female….. (won’t go in to more detail in case it’s a spoiler for people) but that’s how the this game starts, so it seems to continue right off the back of the 2nd game (hence why I’m saying I need to play it again to the end) and man I was like what a game…. Obviously I’m not going to give away any spoilers, but I will say everything is better than in 2nd, from the Dialogue, Shaun Hastings(Danny Wallace) had me in tears of laughter and the rapour between all the modern day characters is akin to the rapour of the Uncharted characters….
There is so far, 3 hours in, a cracking balance in all aspects of gameplay and the one thing I’d add is the combat is better than it was in the 2nd game, but you’ll have to play the game to find out why I think that…. but yep based on the first 3 hours this is a must buy game…. shall give it a further caning tonight and hopefully I’ll have an initial review out there on my website, my wordpress and I’ll no doubt be raving about it on my long awaited 15th Podcast….. oh and the PS3 version has exclusive free content via PSN….
Just wanted to say thanks to Shopto for the early and prompt delivery of this game…… can you do the same again next week for Gran Turismo 5….. unless they postpone it again over the weekend…..
Oh and just a little something…. PlayTV had an upgrade last night…. and we now have Series Link (yes I know Sky have had it since day one) which is cool, also I’m hoping to have bit of a review of Killzone 3 as I was given access to the Beta version last night……
