The London Assassins UviSoft And Hilo's first new generation of consoles receives a warm reception from visitors
So what does the high-end gaming season look like at the end of 2015? In the meantime, the answer seems to range from "not bad" to "cautious optimism," with two leading titles already launched being mostly positive.
We'll start with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, the new chapter in the never-ending brand UviSoft Which comes to us a year after the great disappointment of Assassin's Creed: Unity, designed to provide us with a new era of historical assassins of unprecedented visual quality but also provided a new era of bugs of all kinds and species.
Syndicate, it seems, took things more cautiously and moderately - and with fewer NPC characters on the street at any given moment and slightly less sophisticated effects (all by discernment and comparisons made by players, and not officially of course) managed to provide a smoother and more stable gaming experience than its predecessor when Victorian London Still feels incredibly detailed and authentic, in keeping with the most notable strength of the entire Assassin's Creed series.
However, beyond the sheer pleasure of a trip to London once and encountering key historical figures, it seems that a large proportion of the critics felt that the game itself continued to march. There are many small changes and additions to the formula such as street fighting and organizing a gang of your own that will try to take over the city's territory, but the core in which you assassinate more and more targets, run away, hide and return (usually without any force that can stop or threaten you in real) Tired.
Assassin's Creed: Syndicate has averaged 76 scores from 100 for the PlayStation 4 version, based on 63 reviews, and 80 from 100 to the XNUMX version,Xbox One Based on 13 Reviews. These are better scores than those of Unity (which received 70 scores from 100 for the PS4 and PC and 72 versions from 100 to the XNUMX version)Xbox One), but still relatively low for a game in such a caliber, and still indicate a need for much more fundamental change that is required to maintain relevance in the next decade.
On the other hand, it is reasonable to assume that it is not the critics but rather the players (and the extent to which they will acquire Syndicate) that will determine whether they need to be reinvented for the series, or whether there is much juice to squeeze in the current format as well.
On the other side of the road stood Halo 5: Guardians, the first real game in the successful series for the console-Xbox One (Sorry, Master Chief Collection, you do not really count), which must prove that is still the leading brand of the platform.
Halo 5 has been able to provide visitors with a much more consistent experience with 86 scores from 100 based on 62 Reviews that almost everyone agrees that the updated mechanics added to both a single player campaign and online gaming are doing a good job of modernizing the brand, Started the FPS craze on consoles almost a decade and a half ago.
In fact, aside from many complaints about the plot and new characters in a single-player campaign that fail to impress or interest as far as what we got in previous Halo games - there don't seem to be too many complaints for Guardians. You can be confident that Microsoft and 343Industries have been on the mission of bringing Halo to theXbox New in a way that will be familiar but also refreshing - and now we can only hope that too Halo Wars 2 will deliver the goods.
It is worth noting that these two titles are not available for PCs - for now. Syndicate is going to be launched for computers Windows The 19 in November 2015, after a slight delay to ensure that this version will be baked and polished enough (as opposed to last year's Unity), while Halo 5 has not yet been officially announced to thePC, But the developer states that such a conversion will be relatively straightforward and claim that it is certainly taken into account. We are not convinced what the fifth Halo title will help us with when the four before it (including Reach and ODST count) failed to reach the platform - but on the other hand Halo Wars 2 also comes toPC After his predecessor did not do so, so it seems that this is a reasonable possibility after all.
The launch season of the end of 2015 has just begun, as mentioned, and over the next month many more highly-anticipated and highly anticipated titles are expected - NEED FOR SPEED Promised, Rise of the tomb raider, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Futuristic, Star Wars Battlefront, Rainbow Six: Siege, Just Cause 3 and of course the Fallout 4 the one and only. Of course, we will be here to update you on everything visitors and players say about each and every one of them so that you can decide where to invest your shekels.
