Hi all fans of Assassin's Creed

*Welcomes newcomers*

I think we (AC fans) all can motivate (encourage rather) all newcomers to buy AC. In this way we can contribute to the game by adding more buyers.

<span class="ev_code_GREEN">What's this thread all about?</span> Well the subject says it all. Let me explain it in detail. All fans who think they have best reasons to motivate the newcomers can post their 5 reasons at max. Or earn more fans to say the least.

<span class="ev_code_RED">You may have seen a similar questions/threads earlier but it was in the form of polls, hence limited no. of choices, established by the thread creator- in this thread, you all get to post your own 5 best reasons.</span>

<span class="ev_code_GREEN">What this thread is not?</span> This thread is started by an AC fan contributed by AC fans for newcomers. This is <span class="ev_code_RED">NOT</span> a promotion or a marketing campaign by Ubisoft or its associates.

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">
No Criticism (Ah I hear of "right to speech," shout. Please adhere to the purpose of this thread.)
No Discussion, Speculations.
No flaming. You may show your consent on others' choice but don't forget to add your set of reasons.
No welcoming, congratulating etc.
No requests. Search other threads for this.
Don't like this thread. OK, then DON'T post

Just pure 5 best reasons (in brief) to buy AC for any platform. Stick to the topic to be heard by others. Off topic results in... you know well. You may edit your post for rewriting the reasons.

Want to add more than 5 reasons? Cool, after (the most coveted) 5 best reasons draw a line (a series of hyphens) and go on... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

My 5 best reasons:

1. Its one of its kind. New story set in the backdrop of Jerusalem in 12th century.
2. Free form fighting (like POP series) and realism.
3. Next-gen game.
4. State-of-the-art graphics.
5. Expect minimal or no bugs. (as it's been in development for 4 years now.)

Parkour is free running, Free running is where, you constantly run, and (the best places) like abandon buildings, just say it's like, running from the cops, with out the cops,(and more acrobatical) so you are, jumping off of walls, or running off them, climbing,getting on top of buildings by any means possible,, like crawling, grabbing onto every possible thing to get you up. go to youtube, and search free running, there are some good videos.

Knife_X why is it a problem playing games cuz they has nice graphics? i think it gives a better experience..but course they have to have good gameplay and storyline too-

05-08-2007, 12:48 PM
I, Assassins. I mean the original ones. You can count the good games that have been made about them on one hand and still have fingers to spare.

II, Setting. Third Crusade was one hell of a time to be around the Holy Land. Jade said they'd dug up a historian; I trust that'll make the historical aspect of this enjoyable. "We recreated all of the Holy Land." Nuff said.

III, Graphics. You've seen the videos. I mean, c'mon.

IV, Controls/Movement. From what I've seen/read, controls are gonna be revolutionary in this type of game. Hopefully intuitive, too. "Anything that stands out two inches or more can be interacted with." The mind boggles at the possibilities. People have mentioned parkouring. Just ... yes.

V, Everything else. There's just too much. An anonymous beta tester on Diablo put it succinctly. "This is gonna be something huge."

If the above comments appear to insinuate in any way or form that I am really, really looking forward to this game ... that would be because I am. Get it done already! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

05-08-2007, 02:26 PM
well if the game turns out great im buying it for these reasions

1 climbing le parkour
2 killing people with an awsome blade
3 realistic gameplay
4 cruising from city to city on the horse
5 and that thing what jade showed us in the demo like when altair creates obstakels like altairs cuts thru that wood and that ting falls down thats a cool feature what im looking forwards on too

and ps: also the graphics look great to

05-09-2007, 09:47 PM
1. Sam Fisher can't time travel
2. If anyone can pull this off right, it's Ubisoft.
3. I loved the assassin missions in Oblivion, but I want more. This gives me a LOT more.
4. The concept of an assasssin in a white robe who kills people and doesn't stain his gear... pretty cool.
5. I'm looking forward to seeing how many different ways I can assassinate these people from a running-and-gunning style to a silent-but-deadly technique.

05-26-2007, 05:29 AM
Hey all,

First off all, it's obvious why one should play this game: it's new, it's set in a original location and setting and it's just SUPER! Not buying this game will be the same as not visiting the Louvre when you are in Paris...

Plus, I'm studying History and I find especially the Crusades very interesting. A game like this makes that very intersting periode really comes to life for me (eventhough the game isn't 100% historical correct).


Oh, and by the way: a game that's presented by a woman like Jade has to be great right?

05-26-2007, 04:22 PM
1. The gameplay...Social stealth/parkour/sword fighting
2. The Crusade Setting
3. The Story
4. Controls
5. Altair

6. Crowds

05-28-2007, 03:15 PM
Ok, everyone's already said the graphics, the Crusades setting, the realism of the gameplay etc, so I won't bother doing 5 and just give one I don't think anyone's mentioned.

I read somewhere the score is done by Jesper Kyd (Hitman series et al). Music is often underrated in games and so I'm glad Ubisoft has brought in someone capable of delivering a soundtrack just as atmospheric as the setting of the game.

1.) You can kill people.
2.)Ubisoft wants to make a TRILOGY of this game so they need support
3.)It's a too good of a game to have it on a crappy CD. (or only having it as a comp file)
4.)You get a cute little box too. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

06-03-2007, 04:01 PM
I no this is not five reasons, but another good reason is the "story to present day 21st century". As the live demo vid ended there was a breif clip of 1st person view in a hospital with a nurse by you. It said animus memory... your genetic memory. Then it said harddrive shut down. then the screen went black. My theory is that you are "playing" an assassin through a pc in the game, looking for hints and reasons of a possible world changing event during the third crusade! hard to think about huh?

06-03-2007, 04:05 PM
Sorry Zig but the lab that you're in isn't a PC game. Their looking at a persons genetic memory. The mans ancestor was Altair and their 'watching' Altair through his genetic memories. What their watching is us playing the game.

You are right about a larger conspiracy though. I can't wait to find out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

09-17-2007, 05:58 PM
1) AC is unlike any other "next-gen" game I've seen, that is due out or in development.

2) Free roam. I've played MMOs that claim this feature, but there are still doors or areas you aren't allowed access to, mostly because those games are mission based. And AI characters don't affect your movements, the way AC's do!

3) Great graphics

4) Social Stealth (similar to 2, other games have this feature, but from what I've seen, AC is unique, in that you can do things that do not compromise your stealth)

5) building a reputation WOW! What other game makes you do this? Other games I've played only have a rep, as it pertains to your contacts/handlers. I've never seen one that affects the environmental AIs!

I believe #2 and 5 above are enough of a reason to buy!!

09-17-2007, 06:01 PM
One Reason: While sitting in class today, I looked out the window and thought "Man, I would love to be outside climbing running and jumping." I'm gonna buy it b/c I am not an athlete and want to experience this.

Hi guyz,

*Subject of this thread modified*

Since the AC release is nearby, I thought to summarize all the user given reasons and present in a go for newcomers. I thank all the members who posted here. I consulted zgubilici in this regard, she was equally enthusiastic as I am. Thanks to her for cooperating and supporting the very purpose of this thread.

Ok, in all 47 members' choices (reasons) for buying AC are validated. It took 2 days for me to summarize the choices.

The rules I followed while validating are as follows:

1) Repetitive choices by the same member is considered as ONE.
2) Members talking <5 reasons are taken into consideration.
3) Only the first 5 reasons are accounted for each member.
3) Only the first description was taken into account where many were described in a single reason.

I present the summarized choices given by fans in this thread for buying AC is as follows:



Before posting these all, I took the approval from zgubilici. Thanks to her once again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
