give it a try - nice game

i don't understand all the people saying that this game is bad. well it doesn't have the best grafic and the camera is annoying sometimes but it's still fun to play. i needed about 14 hours for my first playthrough including all the bonus missions. the achievements are very good and stackable. the story is very interesting and i know it's fiction but you still can learn some history aspects about the inquisition, crusades and templars. i like it

yeah I've played the beginning a little bit but I had to stop to study for finals. The fighting seemed a little clunky but it seemed like it might be a decent game. Cant wait til finals are over so I can pick it up again. But then Lego pirates and Brink will be out so its probably 3rd in line to be played. lol

Piss easy is an understatement.

I've got 650GS so far just from playing the story, (I'm on about the third last mission after 8 hours of story), and not really doing anything different than I normally would.
The only tricky thing will be the hundred or so GS from the multiplayer stuff.

Do it on hard, too. I've played the first mission on both normal and hard and there honestly wasn't much difference between the two, you just take a tad more damage.

This game sure is fun. The graphics are not bad either. It does have varied environments which is fun to explore. Also the game play variety is good. Its not just a button masher. Finding all collectibles has some puzzle solving involved. Also the stealth sections are welcome change. The story though not as strong as other AAA titles serves good. The game is not that hard on hard difficulty but does get frustrating at times in duel. The achievements are easy and most importantly fun to achieve. The only downside is the terrible voice acting and a disappointing protagonist and lead characters. They completely lack any personality which is a sad thing. Otherwise i am having fun and i am playing this over LA Noire. I am waiting for my copy of LA Noire and till then this game should fill up the gap.

lol, that's exactly why people like to talk shit about First Templar. It looks and animates like a last generation title. Facial textures are also weird where they look glued on and slip around on some generic enemy models.

You're right though. The game itself is surprisingly not awful, and I think its the only game out there that attempts to offer real life history on who the templars were versus the usual OMG EVIL ILLUMINATI NWO ALIEN FREEMASON CONSPIRACY.

I also like how half the pikemen have pringles guy moustaches.

none of these are true. The controls are pretty good. Combat is simple and repetitive, but far from awful. The VA is stale, but you wouldn't know what horrible is unless you've witnessed a MegaCD or TurboCD game from 20 years ago.

The controls are unresponsive, frequently not doing the input I gave it, there is a noticable delay when inputting a command and the action on screen, enemies frenquetly pop up already hitting me, counter timing is quite consistantly off, execution moves do not occur when they should, Coupe De Gras don't always happen when you get the prompt and press the correct button. I have had all these issues with the game.

The combat itself is slow paced and boring, which is marred by like I said above, controls that are just not crisp at all. There are better examples of hack and slash adventure for 5 bucks in the arcade.

Also, the voiceing is bad, I am not talking about 20 years ago, clearly if you are trying to compare a game released 2 years ago, to one released 20 years ago, you are a tad out of touch with what we should be expecting from a game these days, and pretty much invalidates anything else you say. Might as well just say, well, when you compare The First Templar to hitting a square ball back and forth with a paddle, it is pretty good!
