Someone in gamefaqs is saying that they they give the game a 6/10, to quote the guy:


I just read the review in the most recent issue. They seemed to love the storyline, saying it is "brutally interesting and compelling to the very end." They also enjoyed the improved cinematics and especially the animations. However, they stated that the game is much too streamlined and said later parts of the game suffered from somewhat of an identity crisis, comparing it to uncharted in one example. They found the multiplayer enjoyable but overall not necessary.

I personally don't care about the score but I want to know what they say, can someone confirm this is true and give more details?.

I've always detested Edge Magazine. They're always the outliers in review scores and seem to strive for it just for the sake of anti conformism. My dislike for Edge Magazine has nothing to do with their difference to popular opinion. It's the fact I always disagree with them. The claims they make are outrageous, and that's the only reason they're still in business.

You also may want to read the responses to that post. There's a good chance the poster is a troll.

Assassin's Creed 1 a 7/10
Assassin's Creed 2 a 8/10
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood 8/10
Assassin's Creed Revalations 7/10

The guy above me is right.

This guy isn't trolling, he is literally a troll. Like live under a bridge troll. Conner strolled by and kicked him in the mouth so he's understandably upset at the moment. I'm sure he will get better in about 12 days...

Something tells me more than one person is using that account. Anyway, hope this thread gets locked into oblivion now that it's settled.

GameFAQs are full of little kiddies that troll boards because mom and dad won't buy them the game. In this case, AC3. The kid probably wants it, but his mom and dad won't buy it for him so, leaving him do nothing, but troll boards to feel better.

lets wait and see the REAL reviews - rather than having 3rd hand information ;)
