    I have someone on my list with a stealthed box .. saw him playing it .. asked him about it ..

    reply was basically: "if you found/find Assassin's Creed boring and tedious then this is not the game for you. it's much more reliant on interactin with characters and sitting through lots of conversations. it is as sweet looking as A.C and if you have the patience and time for these games then it is worth buying."

    .. I hate RPG's with a passion .. but Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic had me gripped until the end .. enjoyed it way more than I thought I would .. KOTOR2 was shit though ..

    I plan on getting this though .. hopefully it has appeal for us non-RPG'ers ..

    This mos definately doesnt have as much action as a.c, but I found a.c boring cause it was the same shit over and over. There is lots and lots of talkin but the story is fuckin amazing, its like you playin a movie. I'd say it has more conversations than KOTOR but overall is a much better game, all though I didnt get through much on knights. It's a tough call for peeps who dont play rpgs. I'm not a huge huge fan but I loved oblivion and Jade Empire. I'm more into the dumbed down rpgs. But this game does have alot of talkin, but the story got me hooked, I havent even tried to skip a cutscene. The action gameplay is ridiculous once you start figurin out how to use your upgrades, abilities, and team abilities.

    Graphics are amazing, every cutscene is completely in game, nothin touched up or anything. I find myself just chillin and lookin at the enviroments sometimes, its ridiculous. Leveling system and upgrading is amaaazing. Just make sure to take the film grain option off the graphics when you start, for some stupid reason it starts with it and looks like asscheeks. Storyline will get you hooked, and you'll want to finish every sidequest. Only things I dont like so far is how they made the sprint button, its the same as the interaction button. You'll try to run off sometimes and end up talkin to someone or readin somethin. And the camera has an annoying glitch sometimes when you runnin uphill.

    I knew the graphics weren't going to be dull. Are you playing on a HDTV?
    I always do the side quest once I start a game, it really does bother me
    if I don't 100% complete a game. I also don't continuely play RPGS so It's possible
    I could make this game last about a month.

    lol @ character interactions being boring...the only thing boring about assassins creed is the lack of character interactions inbetween missions......i mean you can kill folks gta style, but you lose sync....

    can't wait to play this game.....but it's gonna have to wait...

    some people do find that suff boring .. just like some people will skip cutscenes if possible ..

    I'm still waiting on my Assassin's Creed so can't really comment yet .. very mixed opinions .. although the majority seems to be that it's a let down and yet another overhyped game ..

    So far it's mostly positive comments on Mass Effect though ..

    eh.....i only skip cutscenes when they suck and/or you gotta sit through them too many times

    the dialouge in a bioware game is so good though i allready know i won't be skipping shit, plus it's interactive so you basically feel like you part of the conversation instead of just watching.

    gears even had those texture pops and this is running on the same engine.....

    i knew the framerate would be an issue just by the gameplay footage
