5.0 out of 5 stars Undeservingly underrated 7 Sep 2013
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Upon reading all the negative comments and the relatively large number of 1 star reviews, I thought this game would be a disappointment. Yes, most of the (negative) comments are true, at least to a certain extent. Yes, Assassins Creed II was better as a story, had a better character (Ezio), and smoother gameplay. In my opinion AC II was - and still is - the best game ever !!! I got off to a bad start with AC III because it was extremely frustrating to die every time you're being attacked by a bear or a wolf (you have to press E, then A or spacebar or... etc). Until I found out you just have to press these buttons only ONCE as they appear. Since then it was really easy to kill the wild life out there. This game (AC III) is beautiful, has fantastic graphics, is very fun to play in all its aspects. It is not because it's not as good as AC II that this automatically means it is a disappointing game. For me, AC II was the Bugatti Veyron of the games - there is just no better than that. But AC III is a Ferrari Enzo. While the Enzo might be a bit less in some aspects, it does not mean it is a disappointing or dull, not in the least !! Just as for really bad games, one star is far too much, I find for this kind of games, five stars is not enough. I'd say, AC II was a 10 star (absolute maximum), AC Brotherhood was a 9 star, AC Revelations was 8 star and AC III also 8 stars. Conclusion : it is a wonderful game, don't let the negative criticism influence you too much !! Silently I hope that sometime in the future Ubisoft will create a 10-star AC episode again - maybe AC IV ?

To be honest it is just a Game with a Story. Nothing Special but I always love playing AC games. The MP is not so good but the Singleplayer is always fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed 3 Aug 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've just finished this game and, up to the last couple of sequences, I would probably have given it a 3 - however, I then encountered two things which lost it a star.

Firstly, the problem of cutscenes for everything just became ludicrous. Throughout the game, I've gotten so frustrated at the excessive amount of cutscenes in the game - step into a bar, cutscene, walk upstairs, cutscene, step out of bar, cutscene, run 50 yards to mission marker, cutscene - but towards the end of the game, this becomes even worse. There's a certain mission where you have to infiltrate a fort - brilliant I thought! The sort of stuff that AC2 and its sequels excelled at - finally some good sneaking. WRONG! All removed in a cutscene - one moment, I'm standing at the tunnel entrance, next moment, cutscene, then I'm in the fort! I mean - why have a game at all - why not just have a movie that we can all watch?
And then the final straw - the ending...OMG! Ubisoft, you had years to come up with a dramatic finish to the whole 'world will end' bit of Assassins Creed, and that's the best you can come up with? I know people complained about the end of Mass Effect 3, but compared to this, that ending is a work of sheer genius!

Other things which I think this game suffers from - it tries to be all things to all men, and thus never satisfies anyone. Yes, you can wander around the woods hunting and skinning animals - but why bother? Sure, you can sell the stuff you hunt and get money for it, but you never need to spend money in the game at all, so what use is that to you? Yes - the frontier is a massive open world, but none of the missions are in the frontier, so you don't need to explore it at all - it's just there...

1.0 out of 5 stars Monotonous and uninteresting. 23 July 2013
By tom
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
At first you are playing as this English chap, he seems quite a decent character, reasonably interesting, a few missions with this guy and yeah its not too bad. Then next thing desmond is out of the animus and after some pointless running around back in it again. Then boom you are this American Indian child, who grows up to be the main character known as Connor. Well that's not his real name, but they call him that instead of the his Indian name. Anyway, its suddenly within 5 minutes it goes from the funish English chap.... to this boring emotionless teenager that has no appeal whatsoever.

The combat has changed too, using a 360 controller, all you need is B to counter, then X to attack and I dont even know what A is supposed to do. Whilst the combat may look cool and initially its reasonably fun, I soon realised all I have to do is press B then X a few times and repeat.

The Worst thing is, remember in the original AC's 1,2 brotherhood and revelations, all those fun side missions, stuff to collect, low level bad guys to assassinate, all that cool stuff you could spend hours doing... Yeah its all gone and there's nothing fun to do but run from scripted mission to scripted mission, with scripted cutscenes in between. It just doesn't feel like AC anymore, a big let down for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars The game captures and presents a whole new game. 26 Nov 2012
By Luke
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly, Assassin's Creed 3 uses an excellent new engine with doesn't just add quality to the graphical content but refines gameplay. You'll notice from the first time you have a run around with Desmond that the running style has changed; it feels smoother and even looks excellent. The character no longer runs like he's aimlessly following a butterfly, he now shafts from side to side and dodges automatically. The first thing I was stunned by were the graphics (obviously) - this at the moment is one of the best looking games out, but of course, games like Hitman: Absolution are also pulling things out the bag, but with Assassin's Creed, despite the vamp up in graphics it still remains fluid. The fighting mechanics have had a whole new lease of life, now when countering it does a sort of slow mo to give you time to chose your move, this helps in aiding you to decide but also adds this fantastic fluidity, as you can then string another attack.

Downsides: Well, it's storyline seems a bit rushed and unknown. Connor was born into a tribe and now he wants to get revenge on the templars for what they did to his family (just seems boring). Also, what many of us will expect with a new engine is bugs (it has them but they're not that noticeable). For instance, when climbing a building and getting onto the slanted room you can sometimes randomly run on thin air and then just drops down slightly. It's also noticeable in fighting scenarios where you'll attack an enemy and it will go to the killing mechanic and you'll get pushed out of this, however, the enemy is still getting sliced to death from nowhere, where he then hits the ground with blood foaming at his mouth.

Overall: This game is excellent, the multiplayer is addictive, as is the game overall, pick it up, play it and enjoy because this is probably the best thing you'll get this christmas.
