    Still the same dull combat, so much for next gen… -.-

    What’s wrong with the combat? Too easy? Just like Saints Row 4 where it’s practically impossible to die?

    Look past that for a second, and this game actually looks pretty damn good. And it does seem to have new combat animations, thank god. Love open world games.

    too easy you said? once you execute one guy, you keep pressing the same damn button and you kill everyone else. That’s just boring! *duh dont do it!* well someone said to make the most effective way to play also fun. They either don’t care in this game, or they love it that way. That game looks sweet but the combat is just a joke :(

    Well it’s either that or button mashing, and too many games have that allready.

    This combat fits very well with you being an assassin and all.

    Animations seem a bit poor for next-gen, there’s really no reason to be skimpy with keyframes considering the specs of the new consoles.

    They aren’t going to do two different sets of animations for a cross gen game. You be crazy. If the game was built for Next gen that would be one thing but that isn’t the case.

    I bet Ubisoft is using the same animation reference library they had used throughout the entire series as all of the animations are done through Mo-Cap. It would be moronic not to do it that way.

    @5 Are you kidding?

    I can understand that you can kill someone with a single goddamn bullet, but to see those swords-mans getting killed with absolutely no reaction, they just fall like some helpless untrained dummies. I just think it’s not fun to look at. No difficulty, nothing. In FPSs at least they try to shoot back at you while they live. Idk. The whole AC combat system is a huge turn off.

    @4 Well at least this game is supposed to be about sneaky assassins so that kind of situations shouldnt happen often.
