Well, i just started up Assassins Creed on my PS3 and for the 10th time the game locked up . Thankfully UBIsoft has acknowledged the fact that this is an issue and apparently working on a patch as we speak. However I feel the need to point out that the frame rate on the PS3 version of this game is horrendous to the point of unplayability at times. I am unclear if the patch UBI soft is working on is going to fix this issue as well, but i highly doubt it.
I would fully agree with an A- grade for the game itself, but the technical issues on the PS3 destroy it for me. this is supposed to be the most advanced system on the market, and the game runs like its not meeting the minimum system requirements. I have posted on ubisofts message board requesting to know if they intend on fixing the frame rate issue, and have received no response. I will be returning my copy of assassins creed today due to my frustrations with the release of such an unrefined port of an Xbox 360 title.
I would be happy to purchase the game again if the performance issues are ever resolved, but for now I can not tolerate paying next gen prices for an unfinished product.
