Why is Assassin's Creed seen as "casual"?

Story makes zero sense, acting is horrible, the game in general is horrible. It's a 7.5 to 8

You call a game horrible then give it a good score? wat


I do it all the time. Even when you can list/see tons of issues that doesn't mean you didn't enjoy it or it fails as a piece of entertainment.

They are the same games. They just look different. Plus the story is stupid now doesn't make any sense and they just hop time lines like no other.


For the most part, you are wrong. There is a hell of a lot more that goes into each new game than just a reskin. Rogue is the exception as it IS just a reskin of BF.

As for the story...it's all opinion based. But i think the story is very good and the lore they set up throughout the games is exceptionally well done when it comes to weaving it in and out of actual history.

Casual has basically come to mean, "not difficult." Much like epic now just means, "above average."

AC games aren't exactly known to be very taxing of a gamer's skill. They are the kind of games you play when you just want to kick back and relax.


Pretty much these. When a game is referred to as casual it typically means it's easy or a pick up and play kind of thing. AC4 is a very easy game. And Rogue looks like AC4 if Edward had a different skin.

Playing thru AC4 BF right now and theres a hell of a lot of stuff to do and manage...and they keep adding more.. This is my first game ive tried (well i tried Assassins Creed 1 but hated it after 30 min) and does not seem casual in the least..are the other games in the series different?


I 100%ed Ac4, its casual. It's very accessible, only 2 legendary ships were hard.

Great game, but casual. Casual is not a bad thing. Wonderful 101 however us NOT casual.
