Have you ever played a game where the jumping controls is ridiculous? Something so simple, is so hard for some developers.
The reason I’m bringing this up, I just brought Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood(Yes, I’m late, sue me). I love the game. Map is huge, and I LOVE fighting with swords. But there is one thing that bugs me the most in the game….Jumping.
With a large map, all you want to do in a game is climb to the topmost building to be undetected. Sadly, the controls are more of a hassle then making your way to the top. In one particular mission, the jumping controls gave me pain. It was half my stupidity, the other half the controls. If the controls were similar to Uncharted, I would have no problem with it.
I would rather want Uncharted jumping controls, where you have to press a button every time you jump. In AC:BH, you don’t have that ability. You can maneuver by pressing up on the joystick. Although, that is easy, it does lends itself with problems. In some spots you have to go back into using the L1 + X button. But, if you do improper, off the roof you go(Which, sadly, I experienced that quite a few times). If you don’t have to use TWO buttons just to JUMP then it would simplify things. That, and we choose to jump every time there’s a space, it will cause less confusion.
The design of the game is GREAT. It’s just that the controls on the game is really a bad fit for it
