‘Warcraft’ vs. ‘Assassin’s Creed’: Which Movie Is Better?

Well, unexpectedly this Thursday morning, I ended up watching Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed back to back. Yes, two movies adapted from two of the best gaming franchises of all time, in succession. And by the way, both films aren’t that great but I ended up watching them anyway.

I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I’ve seen the horrendous Warcraft four times. I’ve loved and played the game for years and couldn’t wait to see the movie adaptation. When I finally saw it in 2016 I was less than impressed. In fact, I was flabbergasted by how bad the film turned out to be.

The casting of the film was HORRIBLE! The story was bland and boring. The CGI was subpar. It’s a lackluster depiction of a game that is so cool and so much fun. I mean, have you seen the World of Warcraft trailers? Check this one out.

This just might be the most epic trailer ever made. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have watched this trailer and been covered in goosebumps every time. Continue reading ‘Warcraft’ vs. ‘Assassin’s Creed’: Which Movie Is Better?

The Fall of ‘Assassin’s Creed’

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was the first game I played on my XBOX One several years ago (it came in the package deal.) For years I had used the Wii as my gaming system and it was fun, for the most part. Playing Mariokart until I dropped, The Legends of Zelda game, Tatsunoko vs. CapcomSuper Mario Smash Bros, you get the picture. I played the Wii for a LONG time and it was fun. But as I got older I wanted to play games made for older people. That led me to eventually having the XBOX One in my teenage years.

Like I was saying at the beginning of this post, the first game I ever played on my XBOX One was Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and it blew me away. Yeah, the graphics weren’t the absolute best in the world but it was beyond a blast to play.

I grew to love Black Flag for its exciting adventures, the fighting matrix, the storyline, everything about the game was super fun and instantly made me an Assassin’s Creed fan. In fact, it’s such a massively wonderful game that I never finished it.

Along with the XBOX One package deal was another Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed: Unity and that made me even more of a fan of the series.

Assassin’s Creed Returns With A New Game

I was introduced to Assassin’s Creed way back in 2014 when I obtained an XBOX One for the first time. It was part of an amazing package deal that consisted of the XBOX console and two free games. Those games happened to be Assassin’s Creed. It was a great introduction to the console after playing the Wii for years. The versions of Assassin’s Creed they provided were Black Flag and Unity and I was amazed. I still play Black Flag to this day because of its huge world that I still haven’t explored completely, its fun story, and its amazing gameplay. And Assassin’s Creed Unity was breathtakingly beautiful with its realism. The character’s hair and skin texture were incredible. They almost looked real. And the buildings were magnificently detailed. It was set during the French Revolution and it really teleported me to that time and age in our planet’s vast history.

After Unity, however, Assassin’s Creed began to become…kind of boring to play. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate came out two years ago and I couldn’t finish it. Its combat was fun and yes there was a female character to play with but it just didn’t excite me. And then last year they decided to bring out an Assassin’s Creed movie of all things.

Now when I first heard about it I was a little excited. It’s already as if you’re playing a movie in each game so I figured it wouldn’t be as bad a flop as the MMO turned motion picture Warcraft was. Then I heard that the main character was going to be played by Michael Fassbender. I was shocked, and not in a good way. Were they really going to make the guy who played Steve Jobs an assassin? Really? It didn’t sound like good casting. And sure enough, the movie was terrible. I watched it with the hopes that maybe I would be able to enjoy it since I loved the game so much and yes I loved certain elements of the movie, like the action. It was however very, very confusing and by the end, I literally had a headache. Now it was better than Warcraft simply because Warcraft was if not the worst film I have ever seen, it was second to worst but it was pretty horrendous.

So after that obvious fail, I didn’t think Ubisoft would come out with a new game for the Assassin’s series for years. And then it was announced on Sunday that a new Assassin’s Creed would come out this fall in October and I was so excited. Check out this trailer.

Wasn’t that awesome?! One of the reasons I love Assassin’s Creed so much is because of the historic aspect of each game. Now they’re taking us to Ancient Egypt and I am ecstatic. I can’t wait to explore pyramids, face ancient monsters, and just marvel at the incredible beauty of the game. And this new assassin we get to play with is an African! How exciting is that?! I mean look at the picture for this trailer. Isn’t that beautiful?

So yes, I am very excited. Fall is going to be a great time for gamers because of all the amazing games coming out. And if you’re as excited as I am the exact date it’s coming out is October 22 and it’s already available for pre-order. If you do happen to pre-order you’ll get exclusive content which is always a great selling point.

Thank you for reading my post this fine Tuesday. I’ll be posting again, later on, today about the brand new Black Panther debut trailer. You definitely won’t want to miss it.
