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 ?

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...

This game can be frustrating, boring and sometimes enjoyable but frustration and boredom are more commonplace.
The historical setting is both interesting set during the American revolution and the storyline quiet good. The cutscenes are good too I don't really have a problem with them. The Biggest frustration as regards the game is the controls which can be both clumsy and awkward. Stealth Gameplay I have found is nearly non existent as you your character cant crouch or remain that well hidden in stealth missions, hes always nearly spotted leading to a frustrating bustup. Before each mission a list of Goals appears for example if you have to give chase to somebody in a crowded city one of the goals could be "don't bump into someone" which is nearly next to impossible. The frontier section of the game can be enjoyable at first where you hunt different species of animals but being honest gets tedious after a time especially when you don't really need the money you earn after a while. The naval missions admittedly are quite enjoyable, something different and a breath of fresh air in this tedious long drawn out game. As regards gametime no complaints unless to say its nearly too long drawn out with boring silly side missions, ive been playing nearly a month now and was nearly relieved when it finished. This Game has some great points no doubt but the frustrating controls, next to impossible stealth gameplay, and being too long drawn out are major factors that cant be ignored.

Assassin's Creed 3 is an odd game. Coming after the heady heights of number 2's almost universally adored Ezio, and some fantastic gameplay in both Brotherhood and Revelations, part 3 was always going to struggle. To their credit, the developers have chosen to go 'different' instead of just 'bigger'. This time we get a very different kind of setting - Colonial America at the brink of Revolution. That they've chosen to weave the tale in with American historical figures, liberally sprinkling them through the plot as major characters, is a fun and very interesting choice (that surely did the game no major harm in the U.S. market). It's also fun to embrace a new region of the world - one where climbing around in the branches of forests, climbing mountainous rock faces, or trudging through knee-deep snow can all occur due to Summer/Winter seasons built into the environment.
One of the game's less popular decisions is what almost amounts to a 'false start' - having you play as another character for several levels. While it makes plot sense, and enhances that character's status in your mind, it doesn't help that you then endure the detested -'power-stripping' of Assassin's Creed 1, where you're forced to go from being a fully tooled-up and powerful character to someone being forced to learn the ropes again and very slowly accrue new equipment.
As someone who likes their toys in the A.C. games, I hated the new method of obtaining weapons, clothes etc. In previous games, you worked hard to gather money, renovated shops etc (which made you feel more invested in the towns & villages) and then just purchased what you wanted.
The time taken to level up and also to earn the money helped slow your pace naturally.
