I want to try an assassin’s creed game. Which one is better for someone who hasn’t played any games: AC3 or AC4?
I would say ACIV is the better game, but I don’t know which one is the best for beginners. I knew some things about the series before I tried it, but AC3 was my first.
Definitely go with 4
4 is better but both are bad
ac4 for sure, tons to do and plenty of missions, fantastic game and surprisingly great multiplayer too
Thanks! I just found out ac4 is 15GB and ac3 is 20GB! But I already decided I’m gonna buy ac4…
Yep. I’ve been playing a lot of AC3 recently, but I’d probably say go with 4. It looks awesome. :D
Might get Child of Light and/or Rayman Legends now!
I’m totally gonna buy Me and My Pets 3D. Sounds awesome!
In a Swedish online store, ZombiU only costs 2 euroes haha…
geez, £7 AC3 on amazon wii U and PC version, same for Zombi u and rayman legends. what a super discount on e-shop!!!!!!
Is this just for Europe? I remember a similar sale for the US a couple of months ago, but maybe this is a new one.
This one’s just for Europe at the moment. US did have a sale on Ubi titles a few weeks back, I think they’ve had at least two sales on the system this year, while Europe hasn’t had any from the publisher.
If there’s a sale coming up for Ubi titles this week for US, it will be in the North American downloads which comes through every Thursday. :)
Why is Smurfs 2 the most expensive game…? Imao
