    IDK, I probably had more fun in Revelations than Bro-hood, and really enjoyed Ezio as a snarky old geezer. Though I'd probably still agree that Brotherhood is better overall.

    While I'd agree that Brotherhood is the best game of the series, Black Flag and Syndicate have both been nearly as good. Black Flag especially. And there's a lot to be said for Revelations and III that usually isn't. Brotherhood is a damn near perfect game, but I don't think it's true at all to say that the series has never even been close to it since.

    Syndicate is enjoyable, though I hate missions that involve driving or hijacking carriages.

    I think Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood together are the best of the series. Black Flag is up there, for sure. The wide-open world was great. Syndicate was a pretty decent entry, in my opinion.

    Revelations is an underrated entry in the series, I think. Gets a lot of flak.

    I never finished 3. Haven't bought any after till I got Syn for Xmas for $19. I heard it was good. 3 just burned me out after awhile somehow.

    I thought the film was...mediocre. There was a missed opportunity to develop the Inquisition setting, which was abandoned for the sake of conveying more of the confusing modern-day segments. I felt like the film dragged on through the modern day, only to suddenly rush at the end for no apparent reason other than someone in the editing room finally noticing, "Hey, we haven't really done anything here for the past hour and time's about up."

    The film gave the audience no reason to sympathize with or cheer on its lead, who, because of the focus on the modern day version of his character, was unlikable. The Inquisition characters were far more interesting to watch, but they were given almost nothing beyond a thread of plot and purpose.

    That's good to know. I have Rogue on my 360, but it would be more convenient to play it on my XB1.

    Assassins Creed Origins Confirmed.

    Goes without saying, but going to offer a violence warning anyways.



    I think it looks cool. They are really kicking it up a notch. Look forward to playing it.:D

    Nice to finally get confirmation of the setting, though I was still hoping for feudal Japan.

    I've been watching a few early walkthroughs. And from what I've seen, the map is MASSIVE. Ginormous. I wonder how far it stretches?[face_thinking]
    Probably won't reach the Holy Land, though I am very curious as to where the boarders of the map are.

    Well it's been a few months. And the game is now out.
    I can't play it right away as I ordered it back home and now am up at college. My parents will be mailing it up, hopefully I will get it before next week.

    I'm surprised this thread has been effectively dead. I would have thought it would have at least been resurrected in the weeks leading up to the games release.

    I'll get this eventually, probably after New Year's. There are too many great games coming out this month to justify paying full price for all of them. So I must needs wait.

    Started Syn last night. For some reason it was rather glitchy and my screen was strobing. I couldn’t even play the game for fear of getting a migraine and having a fit it was so bad. Finally my 3rd attempt was pulse free and I have begun to explore London.
