Assassin’s Creed III gets one of the first reviews
So what you’re saying is that it’s ok for a game to have bugs because recoding is expensive and time consuming??… This isn’t some independent developer working out of a garage, this is Ubisoft we’re talking here, a million dollar corporation…I’m not questioning the fact that the game has bugs, it’s the fact that the game has the usual bugs found in the previous games, not to mention the fact that they’ve been planning and working on this game for over 2 yrs now (maybe more). So they had plenty of time and money to address those buggy issues found in the engine or coding…And again, let me reiterate that having played the game for a few days now (retail copy), whatever that day 1 patch fixed was very minor because the bugs are STILL there…clipping, camera issues, a.i…etc…Just last night a door to start a mission in boston was being guarded and i couldn’t pass…i approached it from the side thinking i needed to sneak behind the guards when suddenly the icon to start the mission appeared and i teleported to the front of the door which alerted the guards but i ended up going in the door anyway…Things like that worry me since it could eventually lock and freeze the game, hasn’t happened yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me…Sidenote- the multiplayer comes in a separate disk which i haven’t tried, so i don’t know if there is a patch for that too.
