    Pretty wide-range. Guess I’ll have to rent it first. Also, does anyone know if I’ll have to play the “Expansion” games to play this one? I beat 1 and 2 but never got around to the ones after “2”.

       You either have to play Brotherhood or Revelations or read up on the story.

      Ign released a pretty good summary video so you should go check it out. I think it will benefit you from picking up the ezio trilogy in winter for $40 the games are great IMO.

    AC III and Liberation will be my first AC games, so I might benefit having not played any of the others. The gameplay will be mostly new for me. Planning on picking up both at lower prices.

    Meh… Reviews can’t stop me from getting both AC3 and Liberation…

    Now anxiously waiting for my copies to arrive at my doorstep… ^__^

    • DrForbidden

      Well, since the reviews are quite overwhelmingly positive, I should hope that they don’t stop you from buying the games… :)

    I was sure IGN was going to give AC3 a 9. Its pretty funny how most of the reviews from IGN lately are under a 9 because it seems like they are just waiting to give Black Ops 2 that 9 for the holiday season.

    • YangTerlupakan

      no, IGN just waiting for the money, baby!!!!!

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        LOL, true that.

  • AESIRFEINT

    waiting for my order regardless the reviews

    I haven’t played either game yet.

    I have read over some of the reviews for both games.

    Thoughts on AC3 reviews –

    Most seem to criticize the new controls, along with the game having the same old mechanics as the other AC titles.

    I don’t really get the criticism of the game being like other AC series. If a new Metal Gear Solid game was released, would anyone expect it to be unfamiliar? Or have series norms completely removed? I doubt it. In fact, wouldn’t doing that make it a different game entirely? This is how I feel about the reviews criticizing AC for keeping elements from previous games in it. It doesn’t make much sense to me, what were they expecting?

    New control layouts always take some time to adapt to. I’m not sure how they could be that terrible. I’ll wait to see how they are when I play the game.

    Quick thoughts on AC3 Lib –

    So, pretty much, it’s a true portable AC experience. That is really all I needed to know.

    I’ll admit, some of the reviews did surprise me. To be clear, I don’t really let reviews influence my purchases. I do read them, I like to read the opinions.

      Eh, controls are the same as Revelations (playing now) I don’t know what they’re talking about, lol.

      Maybe a small change? I don’t notice, if so.

    Reviews are not important anymore, we gamers should do our own review. Take a look at resident evil 6 for exemple, 4.5 on gamespot and 8.8 on gametrailers and gameinformer, in who i believe? It dont matter.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      There’s no believing. It’s different people with different opinions.

      In the future, please refrain from attention grabbing by typing everything in uppercase.

        Caps are ilegal now? Why people insist dictate the “right way” of writes on the internet? However, this is your website and you do what you want, of course!

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          I asked you kindly to please refrain. Why did you do it again? Many people find it annoying, childish, and merely a means to attract attention.

          • http://twitter.com/gamesreflexoes GR+ Entretenimento

            Ok, but for me, childish is try dictate the right way of writes on web

  • DrForbidden

    As much as I love the franchise, I’ll still be waiting until the Complete edition is released next year. I’m still busy with backlog anyway…

  • PrinceHeir

    will wait for complete edition :P
