    It's choppy, that's for sure. Some parts are smoother than others, but I've seen smother 3D on the Ds before.

    It's not as bad as Brothers in Arms, but I just wish it was smoother.

    Gameplay wise it's a good platformer. Combat is good so far and the touch screen mini games are ok.

    One of them is essentially Elite Beat Agents with no music.

    My only gripes are the frame rate and loading times. Everything else is bearable so far.

    So far, it kinda reminds me of those Pirates of the Caribbean games. I like it. Maybe not everyone's type of game, but it seems like it will be fun. I just got to the part where a dude is telling you to go find a chalice. I've never played any AC games before, so I don't know how it compares to any of them.


    Yeah, the opening flyby is choppy. Rest of the game seems to run OK though. Seems less than 30-40 fps though.

    Working fine on an R4.

    (Yay! First post using our replacement modem!)

    Man ! GREAT ! I think the way they did it was the best, I'm happy it isn't 3rd Person.

    Another great ubisoft ds title ! Yay

    EDIT: Cool sleath kills ! The only thing I found weird so far is that there is no VA in the vis.

    EDIT 2: Rayder... Pirates of the Caribbean had a much worse Engine, much less freedom and a badder swordfight (althought 2 was nice )

    This game officially blows.

    Especially the part where you have to apply pressure points.

    my touch screen is all out of whack in certain locations, which means that the minigame is preventing me from continuing in the game.

    So what about the gameplay ?

    Oh and: Can anyone explain the hype ? Is a brand name enough ?

    It's stealth, you run around, get your weapon a few stages into the game, fighting is repetative.

    Well I'm not surprised at the repetitive comments, the console version was uber repetitive.

    I'm not that interested in the handheld version given I've finished the console, so I'm going to skip this one.

    It's actually almost exactly what I expected. The framerate is choppy, much like Bros. In Arm DS (of which I'm willing to bet this is the same graphics engine), the controls are just okay, the action gameplay elements are fun and somewhat inspired but are hindered somewhat by the controls, and the overall presentation lacks any polish. Playable, kinda fun, but not great. When Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword (yes, shameless plug) arrives, then we'll know action greatness on the DS.

    yeah the controls are kind of clunky, espically when you are trying to make a jump :S
