German PC magazine Gamestar claims on the front cover of their new issue that the ending sucks again. But they also say that it's the best Assassins Creed yet.

i believe that the ending "sucking" depends on each person and their experience in the game/series so i wouldnt trust anyone elses opinion

first iīm from germany and i know gamestar since 1999...

i might add three things:

1. Gamestar is fairly critical so if they say "best assasins creed yet" ending or not... it is still a 90%+ and game of the Year Contenter(trust me i know this magazine)

2. Endings are very subjective.. just because one Reviewer disliked it does not mean it is bad at all just that it wasnīt his taste

3. in my opinion there is a difference between a weak("schwaches"is "weak") and a ending that "sucks"

just my 2 cents ;)

Why did you put the spoiler in the title? No point in putting a spoiler tag if you already spoiled it in the title....

Wasn't there a news article way back when ME 3 released that ubi were worried about the ending of AC 3?

Looks like that was correct.

Well, to be fair, Assassin's creed has never had that epic concluding ending that wraps everything up like say in a Zelda game or at the end of Lord of the Rings where you're satisfied and not begging for more. Every AC game has had an epic WTF ending sort of like an episode of lost where you're not satisfied and begging for more. Even if it wraps things up more, it is a video game and still has to leave us wanting more so they can make the next game. Heck even when people where complaining about Mass Effect 3, yeah it was a poor way to conclude for people who had been so invested in Shepherd's story, but they probably wanted to leave a lot of working room for the next mass effect trilogy. We all know it'll happen on the next gen consoles.

I'm expecting an abrupt ending to be honest. It's just how an Assassin's game is, but not every critic likes that.

Meh. I'm not gonna let a magazine tell me if a game sucks or not. I'll honestly be the judge of that experience, hell I got Superman on the 360 for Christ's sake.

"... aber wieder schwacher Schluss".

They are saying it's a weak ending again.... uhm, what do they mean with "again"?!
I love the endings of the AC games, all of them. So, in my eyes, this "again" doesn't make any sense :P

I was about to mention that.
In addition to that I'm sure they will give AC3 a score of 90+ because they gave every AC something around 90 and since they say it's the best one yet....

There are people who just do not like the fact that AC Games always have an open ending. But for me that was always awesome and something special in terms of storytelling!

The title only said that the ending is weak according to a magazine. Is this a spoiler? A spoiler would be "Ending sucks because Desmond dies" (I don't know the ending, though).

Logically, that would mean you will like the ending again :D (Same here) ;)

Why is it in the gaming community that players never seem to be happy with the ending of a game. Look at ME3 that wasn't actually a bad ending people where just hurt at the fact that... Well I am not ruining the ending just in case someone hasn't played it.

in my opinion there are to many different tastes when it comes to Endings

some love "happy endings" where all is well and the hero marries the girl and rides into the sunset^^

some love "open endings" that leave room for own thinking and discussion

some love "realistic endings" where you win but at sometimes heavy cost..


see i could go on for days :D

one Ending just canīt please every single one of us gamers...

everyone of us spends many hours with those 4 massive (for the ones who already have it 5) games and keep imagining and dreaming about the "End"...

so it is only natural that many "imaginations" wonīt match with what the developers had in mind.


and concerning the "End"

i like to remember what one Dev said in an Interview: Our End will leave a lot of room for coming Assassinīs Creed games but we will offer enough closure to the Desmond Storyline so that it feels satisfying and like a proper "End" to this story.

so they already said it could be fairly open so all critisise that should remember(sure Gamestar too) that the Devs said it in advance..

i remember Games like ME3 and Red Dead Redemption where massive discussions on the Ending broke out.... what i learned from that...


it is just a matter of personal taste...

so i suggest we meet in this Thread again after we all played through it and then we have a proper discussion :D

I know Gamespot thought the first AC had a bad ending but I thought it was pretty good. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
