Mind you if anyone does want banning - I get 0.01p per ban..

[the above may or may not be true]


Back on topic,


I know I shouldn't get excited - but appears quite a few people are impressed with this - and the fact that there is so much gameplay - if you do the side missions, means it's a game that should last...

And then we have the multiplayer..

lol I know - Dan has a way with words...

Can't wait to see the reviews http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just like him though, I'm hoping that reviews take the time to play the game, as a whole, and not just complete the story missions and miss out on all of the side quests etc..

Judging by the way the series has progressed I wouldn't be averse to saying that AC3 will need two discs. Like, two discs filled to the brim. with content.

I would agree if it wasnt for Epic Mickey coming out at the end of November, but afterwords Ill prolly return to AC:B (even though ill prolly have the SP completed)

MP should definitely keep the game fun even after the story is over. All MP really needs a few tweaks and 2-3 good objective based game modes to add to the already great wanted and its perfect.

The new world features and the new VR mode should prolly extend the SP time a good amount as well.

I just cant wait, there are plenty of things Im sure it could improve on, and many of those are prolly similar to AC2 (like generically evil villans, and Ai issues with aggressiveness in both combat and chasing) but it will still be an awesome game.

I assume the "Mr Marston" that is refferred to is the one from RDR?

He could have just wrote "It's really good lol", published it and went home for all he actually told us there. The anticipation's killing me. It's times like this where I wish reality was like The Sims, where you can fast forward through monotony and down time to get to the juicy bits faster.

I'm sorry, but I was expecting much more than this. Not worth the spoiler tag, not worth reading and really not worth a topic of it's own.

Then again, that's just me. By the way, just in case I missed a second or third page there was only one page right? That's all I saw.

Is funny because is true!!!

(no smarta$$ comments...)

[SPOILERS] [SPOILERS] [SPOILERS]

Btw, how can you fit 35 HOURS worth of side missions in it? I thought it only had 15 hours of campaign... shouldn't the Campaign have more hours?

And I personally think once you've clocked the game, it'll be a huge let down, all that hard work and then suddenly there's nothing to do except replay missions or play online

what else are you expecting? aren't all games like that? its not like this has a free roam component like RDR, all good games eventually come to an end
