Ive had the game for about 4 hours now, and i thought a quick thought on how i think it is should help decided those of you on the fence
First off Ill give it a grades
8.5-9 Everything looks awsome, just some menu confusion little things
9.5 Game is gorgous, all the cities are stunning, alot of time and effort put into this.
8 The Main characters voice acting is not really good, thankfully the others are alright, and the music is decent, and the other sounds are fine.
8-9 This is where every single review is going to be different, right now i love the gameplay, the sword fighting is really cool, but i understand how it can get repitive, but thats why i try to avoid it and use stealth. The few times when it goes in to watch your guy kill someone is really awsome to watch. The climbing is so danm awsome, they made it so realistic.
Story-7-9. I cant really give this a score yet, but it would be easily a 9, if they didnt have the other character, just annoying mostly. Besides that its alright for a story, i can tell its gonna get better though.
No score- havent played it all, but right now i could easily start the game over and want to do everything again.
Heres the deal, and its the way AU put it. This is a type of game where you really like it, or you dont. The game is stunning in the terms of how much work was put into it. It really is a sandbox in terms of amount of area there is to explore. The graphics are stunning, sound is decent/good, and the gameplay can be really cool. Its a great game ive yet to regret it one second. If any of you are on the fence, then give it a rent or a buy, this game is very worthy of both.
With regard to Call of Duty 4 having an ultra short single player campaign, I guess it may well have been due to the size limitations of DVD on the XBox 360, one of various limitations multi-platform game designers will have to take into consideration-Mike B
