It takes all those elements from the greatest third person action/RPG franchises of all time, mashes them all together, and makes them it's own.

I have ZERO complaints about this game, other than some technical issues. The combat is tight. The art-style is jaw-droppingly beautiful. The exploration, and puzzles are just right. The voice work is great, as is the story. It's just an amazing experience all around. My only gripe, is that it kind of runs like shit on the 360. The framerate is pretty brutal. Other than that though, it's damn near perfect.

I've never really been a Zelda fan either, I really just can't get into them. I do, however absolutely love Metroid and think it's Nintendo's best franchise.

Really? I didn't really have trouble with any of the bosses apart from that Spider fucking thing. That cunt shitted me.

I finished AC:R I don't really think the 'Revelation' was that amazing, but the game itself was pretty damn good. Playing throughout the three games as Ezio was nice, watching his character grow and be fleshed out. The mechanics are the best at it's point for the franchise too. It was pretty cool learning more on Altiar too.

I started playing ACIII and it's so visually stunning it's unbelievable. Ubisoft really went all out with their new engine. I feel as thought the climbing has taken a step back though, it's smoother and faster, but ever so boring. Just having to do nothing but hold down RT seems lazy and dull. Otherwise I'm liking it enough so far.
