    Chris_Hudak

    A-
    + Walloping, Epic, action-packed story
    + Outstanding overall presentation
    + Basically seamless gameplay-to-cinema transition
    + Constant, flawless integration of button-press events
    + Some intriguing 'takes' on the mythology
    + Fluid, accessible, mostly-intuitive control.
    +/- Long live the goofy, tame, but-still-better-than-nothing sex minigame!
    - You'll want to look around more--but Dramatic Camera says no!
    - Rare, but extant, camera/viewpoint issues

    B+
    + Swift, immediate combat system
    + Complex, localized story
    - ...that has an extremely weak origin story
    - ...and a theme that could be executed better
    +/- Complex characters that aren't as memorable
    + Sarcastic dialogue options
    + Improved skill trees and resource-gathering
    + High replay value
    - Recycled dungeons
    - Glitchy

    A
    + I am Batman

    Nick_Tan

    4/5
    + Appreciate the Cantonese (and the swearing)
    - ...but the transitions into English are awkward
    + Decent cast of characters
    - ...despite lack of character depth
    / Ending slightly rushed, story is good enough
    + Solid melee combat, adequate gunplay
    + Visually impressive open world of Hong Kong
    + Plenty of side tasks and missions
    + Social Hub, including mission replay
    - No difficulty setting
    - Few game-freezing glitches

    I'm surprised Dragon Age 2 and Assassins Creed 3 made it this far.

    Thats why it's so surprising. They don't really fit.

    Well AC3 DOES have a 5/5. I haven't played it but with a perfect rating I can see how GR got it so high.

    Well it's a Daniel 5/5, so it's really more like 3.5/5.

    I just realized...

    You didn't count my joke list, did you? The one with Assassin's Creed 3 and Dragon Age 2 really high up?

    Because that was the only time Assassin's Creed 3 even came up.


    Did you mean Assassin's Creed 2 and make a mistake? That would make WAAAAAAY more sense.


    Same with Dragon Age 2. The only person who had it on their list was Links. Did you mean Dragon Age: Origins?

    Finally, someone's unending sarcasm got to him... now if we could only get used off his high horse.
