I really want to get Assassins Creed. I am ready to buy it, but I don't know which system to get it for. I have an Xbox 360 and a good computer (8800GTX, Q6600, 6 gig RAM, etc.) I am leaning towards the PC, but my main concerns are:
1. I know that there are a lot of reviews that say it gets repetative on the console, but the com adds some new minigames. Is this worth it?
2. Generally, computers have better graphics than the consoles. Will my PC run at higher settings to the point where it is noticeable? I can run at a maximum resolution of 1680X1280
3. My most important concern is the control scheme. I know the game is styled after parquor, but is it better with a console controller or a mouse/keyboard? If need be, I can buy a wired controller (thinking about one anyways) and use that for the PC as well as the 360.
4. Lastly, is there enough free content for download on the computer that it is worth it? I don't plan on buying the points for Live to download things, so I would prefer to just use the internet on my computer.
Any help that can be given will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I got it on PC and I like it. I never played it on 360. With a q6600 and 8800gtx you should be able to rock with high settings in dx10 at 1680x1280. I'm run everything at high at 1680x1050 in dx10 with my setup.
I've just started playing A.C. on PC, running an OC'd 8800GT at 1680X1050 on DX10 with everything maxed and it's running smooth as butter... cept for some pretty consistent crashing issues.
I actually got a wired Xbox 360 controller for this game, and I’m quite liking it as a controller, although to be honest I’ve played with keyboard and mouse, and keyboard an mouse is better. I got the controller to see what i was missing out on since i don’t have and Xbox and am considering buying one, and quite frankly since i have the rig and the controller and all the games that i seem to want to play on xbox get ported to PC eventually i think i'll save the money on the Xbox and get the cheaper PC games.
If i was you i'd get the PC game simply because you'll run it fine and it'll be cheaper and use the keyboard and mouse instead of the 360 controller.
Only complaint i have is the continuous crashing although Ubuisoft promise a patch soon that will help with that.
as far as controller/keyboard and mouse. Its fine if you have a mouse that has a couple extra buttons on it. Although its still not bad if you dont, but you can tell the game was created with a controller in mind.
I dont know what minigames you speak of? Maybe they threw a couple extra missions in there for the pc or sumthin, but even on the pc it gets kind of repetitious. go to the city gather intel kill the guy, go to the city gather intel kill the guy. It may sound negative but trust me when I say the fighting, scenery and storyline definitely outweigh any short comings this game has.
I havent checked to see if there was any sort of modding scene or downloadable content for this game yet.
okay thanks guys, im thinkin just getting it for the pc. I used the term "minigames" to describe the side quests you do before assassinating someone. They said the pc version has extra side quests so theres a little more diversity. Also, my heritage is from this area so I'm very interested to get this game.
luckily, ive been skipping over anything that sounds remotely like the plot in reviews and such, so I havent heard very much.
next time, just let those kids burn inside the preschool. It's not worth breaking an arm.
I know that this thread is as old as Methuselah, but still I have to say just how terrible that was to say. I am shocked that someone would joke like that, and what kind of moderators did this site have back then to let something like that go...
