    Exact same as me. Ezio was cool and fixed everything about AC1 but I wasn't interested in the spin offs. This will be brilliant. It's going to be a long wait

    ACII was AWESOME. I spent my entire christmas day and boxing day platinuming it lol. I was so excited for AC1 but it was awful and repetitive. ACII was everything I wanted and more. This looks brilliant! Taking a hatchet to British peoples face! DOES IT GET ANY BETTER?!?!?! Wee jokes :p :D

    BrotherHood and Revelations were just side games and not full sequels.

    Does this explain why they were so short and felt more like add-ons with no proper endings and a waste of £40?

    Brotherhood took me about 20-30 hours to finish :confused:

    Not played Revelations yet so can't comment.

    Both took me about 10 hours, but that was the main "missions" only and side missions when I found them. I didn't go out of my way to locate them all but once the main credits roll, the incentive to go back and finish them disappears.

    In ACII everything was tied in together so much better and by the time the credits rolled virtually everything had been completed anyway, baring a few bits to go back and finish off.

    I tend to (if enjoying a game)look at the trophies and get as much of those done as possible (except online trophies) so yeah, a lot of the game time would have been doing side missions, earning money to buy all weapons etc.

    I always find it strange when people say they only play the "main missions" and cant be bothered with the side missions. The game has been constructed to include side missions and ive paid to play the game so I always do everything in the game to get the full experience and my moneys worth.

    For me only Revelations felt a little short and that something was missing (something thats even been admitted by ubisoft) however the one thing that I did like about it was...
    the side mission where we discovered Desmonds back story

    The Connor story trailer looks really good, double weapon combat looks dynamic and brutal. I can't wait for this now.

    Has anyone ordered from Tesco's before? I've pre-ordered the Join or Die edition with exclusive tshirt but can't see my order as they have switched it from Tesco Entertainment to Tesco Direct. What are they like for deliveries, do they ship on the release date or a few days before?
    An email says my order is still vaild but I would have to ring customer service to check. I haven't bought a full priced game for ages but thought I would get this as I loved the others in the series.

    You might get it for release, you might get it a few days later, you might get it a week later, roll a dice is the answer, IMO

    Well i ordered a blu ray off them a few days before receiving that email and its still not come. (ordered 17th) :rolleyes:

    Still on the fence about this. I know ACII has a lot of fans but i thought it was a bit mediocre. I actually couldnt wait to finish the game as for me it got extremely repetitive. Definitely one of those games where i just dont get the hype. :confused:

    I have been impressed with what ive seen so far though from the gameplay footage.

    Gonna wait until I get my new iMac in December. Love Assassins Creed but the console versions always have screen tearing and I'd love to play it as good as it could possibly look!

    Looks a stunning game though, can't wait to just go exploring :D

    I thought ACII was the best. I think they made a mistake having the offshoots, especially Revelations which I got bored with very quickly.

    It's probably too late now to cancel my order with Tesco as I can't view the order online. :(

    be aware if you plan on getting this there is a major day one patch you will need, I feel sorry for those that dont have internet access how the hell are they going to be able to play such a buggy mess and how this got passed QA i do not know it's all well and good saying there is a patch but that shouldn't have to be the case.

    here is the list of what the patch will fix it's a long one


    Bug Fix

    Animus Synching tutorial, fixed an issue where the player could think he's stuck in an infinite loading when getting to Boston after the end credits
    Fixed a bug where counter-killing with the bow does not always work
    NPCs spawned too far away could end up being of the wrong type
    Camera could remain stuck after the player being respawned
    Player could remain stuck after diving from a waterfall
    Player could remain stuck if he exits a slopped hay stack at a certain angle
    player would always get immediately detected when performing an unarmed stealth assassination in another guard's back
    Under rare circumstances, the crowd would stop spawning
    Fixed an animation glitch when interrupting the reception from high profile jump
    Fixed various occurrences of missing sounds
    In some cases, the Animus Database sound ambiance was not stopped when exiting
    Various stats and leaderboards were not showing up properly
    Online shop could sometimes appear empty if fetching the data from Xbox Live is taking too long
    Mission "RETURN TO ABSTERGO" - fixed a bug where the player would lose control over Desmond during a fight if he lures and kills some guards in the wrong area
    Mission "A DEADLY PERFORMANCE" - Mission would not continue if the player decides to climb the wall instead of using the ladder
    Mission "JOHNSON'S ERRAND" - fixed a bug where the game would remain stuck if the player runs during the black screen that occurs after exiting the tavern
    Mission "THE SURGEON" - Charles Lee could fall in the water and die while following the player, causing the mission to fail, if the player decides to take a certain path that involves jumping over the water
    Mission "THE SURGEON" - fixed a bug where we would show the desync effect if the player throws one of the target in the water, even though the mission is not really failed
    Mission "WELCOME TO BOSTON" - The courier side-quest next to the general store would not start properly
    Mission "EXECUTION IS EVERYTHING", fixed a bug where the mission would not continue if the NPCs you are eavesdropping react to a dead body
    Mission "THE BRADDOCK EXPEDITION" - Mission would not continue if the player kills all enemies in the camp, killing the required target last, without triggering open conflict
    Mission "FEATHERS AND TREES" - NPC's would not detect beams properly, preventing them from performing the trunk around move
    Mission "FEATHERS AND TREES" - Mission would not continue if the player doesn't follow the expected path
    Mission "HUNTING LESSONS" - Mission giver could not be there if the player goes away and comes back
    Mission "SOMETHING TO REMEMBER", fixed a bug where the screen could become all white or black for the remainder of the mission if the player set his brightness option to anything else than the default value
    Mission "ON JOHNSON'S TRAIL", fixed a bug that could cause the optional objective "Use powder kegs to destroy smuggled cargo" to not be saved properly if the player reloads during the mission
    Mission "THE TEA PARTY'' - Optional objective "Dump crates of tea in the water" could not be completed if the player threw all crates before having killed all guards
    Mission "THE MIDNIGHT RIDE" - Mission could not be completed if the player interacts with the delivery quest giver along the way
    Mission "BRIDEWELL PRISON", Player could remain stuck prison cells
    Mission "PUBLIC EXECUTION" - Crowd NPCs could be spawned in or walk through a cart during a cinematic
    Mission "SOMETHING ON THE SIDE" - Optional objective "Perform a successful static eavesdrop" could not be completed.
    Mission "MISSING SUPPLIES" - Optional objective "Do not hide in the hay cart while following the convoy" not being saved properly if the game is reloaded during second part of the mission

    Crash Fix

    Possible crash that could happen if the player blends in a crowd group where some NPCs haven't spawned yet, and while blended performs a kill.
    Possible crash that could happen if the player triggered a loading while being in a covert escort formation with his brotherhood trainees
    Possble crash that could happen when calling a brotherhood trainee with the snipe ability

    Naval Mission

    "OAK ISLAND" - Player could pass through the ground when diving into the cave
    "OAK ISLAND" - Wolves could stop attacking the player and remain stuck
    Possible crash if the player spams the swivel guns with the semi-automatic cheat enabled

    Homestead

    Mission "HAPPY EXPECTATIONS" - Game could remain stuck on a white screen when starting the mission
    On the Homestead, fixed a bug where the player could remain stuck if he performs a corner pose on the left side of Norris' cave's entrance

    Side Quest

    Brawler Challenges 3 - Task "Own every weapon available in the stores" would not complete when the player expects it to.
    Fort Monmouth and Fort Division - Quest objectives would fail too early without the fort resetting properly
    New York delivery mission - Game asked for a different item (deer heart) than what was showed to the player (venison)
    New York Liberation Missions - Possible that the game would wrongly display that 2 of the districts were completely liberated when it's not the case yet

    Just had an email from Tesco, They cancelled my order for the Join or Die edition but the good news is as a gesture of goodwill they are going to send the standard edition for free. As i was originally going to order the standard edition originally this is great news.
