Anyone else playing this? I picked it up on release day but have only played a few hours. I'm having surgery tomorrow and so I should be playing a ton this weekend while I heal. The multiplayer portion seemed as good as ever. I played AC:B multiplayer with a buddy of mine, but he never played Revelation so I didn't do the MP portion of that game. If anyone has this for PS3 let me know. I'd love to find some people that play multiplayer the way I do. Like when me and my buddy used to play one of us would use eagle vision and lock the target so the other could come up and disguise-poison him for a huge bonus and get 1300-point kills regularly. I'd also like to try wolf pack mode. PS3 name is V_1_C_1_0_U_S.

I picked up Dishonored for PC, Forza Horizon, and ACIII for 360 because they have a buy two get one sale on all games at target. Played the hell out of Dishonored and Forza yesterday, and gonna start ACIII today. Looking forward to getting into it, as I really liked the American Revolution setting....

Storyline is great so far. Gameplay a little buggy.

Wolf pack mode is the fuging poo in multiplayer. Played it last night for a few hours went from level 2 to level 14. Play as a team and everyone gets ridiculous experience. Tons of fun.

Picked it up from redbox been playing it.

Pretty fun but the shooting and fighting is more difficult than I remember other from AC games.

Fun so far. Combat does seem harder than in the past, but if I remember correctly you had to buy new weapons/armor to increase your abilities. Haven't seen that yet though, and honestly haven't seen many stores. The game is moving kind of slow with all the steps you have to take to get to Connor, but I kind of like it as well. Also, the mission/parts of the missions can be unclear sometimes...so when all else fails, I just kill people.

Don't like it so far. All the controls are different. There's only 1 button that controls running and climbing so if you run into something, you climb it. The fighting is weird and the gun shooting is really really annoying. How does a 15th century assassin have a better gun than an 18th century assassin? Takes so long to reload and hard to get the actual gun to shoot when you want it too. And you can't use any of your weapons unless you are locked on someone now. Outside of Boston, the maps are too chopped up and takes too long to get from one point to another. I've also gotten really bored at times with this game due to not enough action.

SPOLIER:

The writing isn't that good either. So Connor's dad has been nice and gentle the entire beginning of the game, then suddenly he's a templar and beating up kids and burning down the mother of his kid's village? I mean, he killed a guy that he used to consider his "brother" because that guy killed innocent people and children, so wtf? I wish they showed how his dad went from being an assassin to being a templar. Hopefully they will later in the game, Im on sequence 5 now. And also the random guy Achilles who somehow used to be an assassin and is teaching Connor now.

/END SPOILER

Overall it's like it's a whole nother game. I'm hoping when I actually get to the part where Connor is an assassin, the game will be better. Right now I can say that I'm really dissapointed in the game. If I had to rank all the AC games right now, I would put this as the worst.

So you've played like 2 hours of the game, before you even get to play as the main character, and you've declared it a failure?

I fuging love the internet...

Finally found a place to buy weapons...still no armor though.

It does get better once you get to Connor, but it's still a little weird for me right now. As for the shooting/weapons in general...pain in the ass.
