Darth Jebus Posted February 9, 2009 Share Posted February 9, 2009 I know it's been out for quite a while, but I have to give this game much props for it's realism in its graphics. The game FEELS dirty and gritty and honestly makes you feel like you're in the 12th Century. The combat is fluid and does one thing that I usually don't see other games do: when you stab a target with your sword, it actually dies. None of that slash 10 times or pull off a combo that does a lot of damage but doesn't kill. When you pull off a maneuver and your sword goes into the mob's body, blood squirts out and it dies. I'm not trying to sound morbid, but that's pretty realistic. This serves to make you, the player, feel all uber and badass even though you know that the mobs are ridiculously easy to kill. Even your primary targets. Not to go into too much detail but even things like riding a horse are very real. You can see the PC steer the horse with the reigns and small clouds of dust get kicked up as you go along. The buildings look worn and ancient and the townspeople react to you in a very realistic way. For example, if you run through a town, this is known as a High Profile action and everyone in town will be like, "That guy's in quite a hurry. He's gonna hit someone if he keeps running like that." Or if you scale a building like Spider-Man rather than climbing up a ladder, people will be like, "Now, just what the hell is he doing? Has he lost his mind?" And drawing your weapons in town will also draw the attention of the guards. I hate to gush over a game that's been out for so long, but this is one of the first games I've played on a console that seemed so polished, and generally well put together. Am I wrong or did anyone else feel the same way? And does Ubisoft have a reputation for putting out quality games like this? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
