Did you see the launch trailer, awesome stuff but I'm getting NFS though.

I hope the online is pretty good and doesn't ruin the game.

I'll probably play the online first before the community dries up. I hope the achievements for the online aren't in the insanely long and difficult category.

I loved AC2 and I'm really looking forward to playing the SP campaign of this one. The MP looks interesting, but I'm not sure if I'm going to try it out before I send it back to Gamefly.

Oh, don't worry, they made sure one of them is.

Also not a fan of Strong Closer... I don't really like gimmicky achievements like that.

Hopefully online is unique enough to last a long time.

Ugh, I know I might not get most of these multiplayer achievements but I think the game overall will be fun. Haven't gotten my shipped email from Amazon yet though. That sucks.

I really want the EU version of the collectors edition. The Codex Edition is so much better than what Ubisoft is releasing in America.

I looked over the level progression since I couldn't get through to the servers tonight. There is an absolute ton of stuff to unlock, so as long as no handful of things seem overpowered (perk + ability set), there should be plenty of reasons to play this online for a while.

Still no reviews up. If I remember right, Ubisoft did this last year with ACII. The reviews didn't come out until around noon EST on release day.

Yeah, I saw that one. Question is, how long will it take to reach that level?

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

Cancelled my pre-order on amazon, in hopes of it being 29.99 or somewhere around there on Black Friday.

And I'm only on DNA sequence 4 in Assassins Creed 2, should get that finished soon though!

Gamespot gave it an 8.5.

The Good:

  • Huge, beautiful city stuffed with amazing details
  • Lairs and other platforming sequences are fantastic
  • Long, with lots of fun and varied activities
  • Economy is more meaningful than before
  • All sorts of improvements, big and small.
The Bad:

  • Main story is disappointing
  • Assassin recruitment is contrived and ultimately meaningless
  • Glitches.
EDIT:
And an A- from 1UP

I didnt enjoy the multiplayer in the beta but as always the single player will be great.

I'm about half way done through sequence 2 and I'm loving it. I forgot how frustrating some of the dungeons in this series can be. The game's world seems huge and if you are a completionist about flags and feathers, the single player part could take a lot of time(in a good way). Since I don't have gold, I haven't tried the multiplayer modes.

Took a chance on the game today, even though it wasn't on my radar. I'm gonna try it out now.

Like some have already said, I'm waiting for the black friday deals before picking this up. Either way, I enjoyed AC 2 too much to not play this.

Seems to be getting great press so far. I fell in love with AC2, so I will be picking this up next week during BF.

I'm in sequence 2 and the single player is really good so far. It was quite polished with AC2, now its just polished and fun. I am trying to get into a multiplayer session but seem to be unable to. Bummer.

EDIT: Took about 4 tries but finally am getting in.

Does anyone have the CE? Is the disk the soundtrack is on a game disk meaning the tracks are locked to it and can't be ripped to your PC?

(This is how it was for AC 1 and 2 CE, and the PoP CE.)
