I'm looking for opinion that may or may not help me formulate a short blog, but first I want to open the topic to the floor.
I love Bayonetta. I think it's the best hack n' slash game ever made - from a combat perspective. I stress combat because I think Platinum nailed the tiered combos, the hit cancelling, the frames were spot on, the moves were insane and the combat just felt slicker - to me - than any DmC game or other hack n' slash to date.
I have to add a disclaimer that I love the DmC series so this is, in no way a put down, at all.
So my question to any one who has played Assassin's Creed 3 is:
Is it me or is the game's combat one of the most simplistic and mind numbing battle mechanics ever devised? To me it just feels utterly devoid of skill and - in a strange way - makes the game's open world setting feel more fenced in. There's no room for flair or to show-off, or to even use a little intuition - a must for all games in my book.
I realise it's not a hack n' slash game, but it is a third person title with combat, multiple enemies and other vaguely similar traits. I just want to field opinion with you guys to see if I'm letting my love of that genre put me off AC3's combat or if there really is a problem - in your opinion.
Phew. Thanks guys, keen to see what you think :)
