Assassin’s Creed Origins Review

February 12, 2018 // 0 Comments

Assassin’s Creed first released in 2007, and two years later saw its first sequel. After that, fans of the franchise got a new entry every year from 2009 to 2015 with the release of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. With a technically flawed release in 2014 with Unity, many fans began to feel burned out on the series. Thus, 2016 came and went [...]

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Review

January 1, 2016 // 1 Comment

Back when it came out I and many other people considered Black Flag a watershed for the series and rightfully. Simply put: This is the next watershed and if they can continue to crank out games like this at this level of quality the I hope they making these games for as long as they sell because I'll never get tired of something like this. I'll welcome a game like this every year with wide open arms. [...]

Assassin’s Creed Unity Review

January 22, 2015 // 1 Comment

I deliberately held off on doing this review because very few if any outlets have bothered to give this game a fair shake post patches. The bulk of what you see out there is either 1.0 or 1.1 when the game was in a far worse state. As of the date I write this: January 1, 2015, the game is vastly improved and evolved from its launch day form. The [...]

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review

December 22, 2013 // 2 Comments

I am a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed games so admittedly I approach these games with a healthy benefit of the doubt and positive bias in place. I hope I’m not an outright fanboy and I don’t think I am since I can harp on some quibbles and nitpicks I had from previous games, whether it be the KBM controls on the first one or [...]

Assassin’s Creed – 3 Accipiter Review

January 6, 2013 // 0 Comments

This is the final volume, so far, of the French comics to be released in English (all three volumes were just released in English back in October). A fourth volume came out in November in French titled “Hawk.” After finishing this volume, I really hope it doesn’t take another two volumes to come out before the series is printed in English [...]

Assassin’s Creed – 2 Aquilus Review

January 5, 2013 // 0 Comments

If you read my review yesterday of the first volume, then you know this is really where this series of graphic novels begin a serious departure from the storyline we play in the Assassin’s Creed games. Yes, the characters we met in the first game (Desmond and Lucy) and the second game on (Rebecca and Shaun) are all present but things are way out [...]

Assassin’s Creed – 1 Desmond Review

January 4, 2013 // 0 Comments

This is first volume of the French comic/graphic novel series of Assassin’s Creed books. This volume starts off with Subject 16 and an ancestor named Aquilus, but it’s very much about Desmond and Altair. It tells how Desmond was kidnapped and came to be at Abstergo, and shows some key missions of Altair’s. For the most part, this volume [...]

Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation Review

November 7, 2012 // 3 Comments

Today, we’ll be discussing Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation, the series first venture onto the Playstation Vita. This is also our first review of a Playstation Vita game here at Web of Paine, so hopefully you enjoy this review. With the Vita being the hi-def sequel to the PSP system, AC3 Liberation is one of the games that I was looking [...]

Assassin’s Creed III Review

November 7, 2012 // 2 Comments

I’ve not attempted to hide the fact that Assassin’s Creed has been my favorite franchise of the current generation, or that Assassin’s Creed III has been my most anticipated title of the year. I had incredibly high expectations going into this game, and truth be told maybe I had that bar set a little too high. Since the [...]

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Review

July 7, 2012 // 4 Comments

At first glance, you may think Brotherhood is nothing more than an expansion pack to Assassin’s Creed II, and actually that doesn’t feel far off. The game does carry that vibe. Brotherhood picks up exactly where Assassin’s Creed II left off, for both Desmond and Ezio, making this a direct sequel where you really need to play the [...]
