3.0 out of 5 stars Good game, but the exclusive content is expired 30 May 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation3| Edition:Exclusive Edition|Verified Purchase
I have all the consoles, so choosing which version to buy, gave me a hard time. Fortunately, the PS3 version would include 60minutes of exclusive gameplay. So I ordered the PS3 version.

When I got the game and opened it, I tried to enter the code, but got an invalid message. I read through the manuals and saw that the code did only last until March 31st. I was not informed by this in any way.

I mean amazon should have informed me of this before my purchase.

Just a little heads up to the people buying this version for the exclusive content.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
'Assassin's Creed III' is a clear labour of love. The world that Ubisoft have created is as dense as it is expansive; as beautiful as it is alive. But it varies wildly between moments that are utterly inspired, and others which are the total opposite. Indeed, the game is a project of such ambition that at points it's obvious that Ubisoft bit off more than they could chew. And although AC3's failings tower above the successes of other games, those failings are conspicuous enough that this final instalment in Desmond's story marks a step backward even as Ubisoft take two steps forward.

The game has four main problems. First, the character of Connor - a half-English, half-Native hybrid out for revenge against the Templars who burned down his village - comes across as little else than a hot-blooded brat, spouting platitudes about `freedom' like a broken record. He has none of the likability or gravitas of AC2's Ezio Auditore, against whose legacy he pales. It was very difficult to invest emotionally in the character, and ultimately, his story, despite an enthralling backdrop and a strong set of villains. Connor's blandness is also a particular disappointment given the exceptional quality of the first three sequences of the game, during which the player steps into the boots of Connor's father, Haytham, whose moral complexity and quiet charisma made him a sumptuous aperitif preceding a half-baked main.

Second, although the world is vast, much of the gameplay (especially the side missions) just feels like filler. This has always been true of Assassin's Creed to some extent, but Ubisoft managed to mix it up a lot more in AC2, pulling it off with such verve that it was rarely a chore.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disastrous darling 22 Mar. 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Exclusive Edition
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many other reviews here, the single most important thing happens to be the biggest let down... the character of Connor. There seems to be almost no trait of distinction about the character, he may as well be Desmond (which is a very bad thing indeed, but I'll come back to him in a bit). In the 1st Assassins Creed, Altair was at least a mysterious, vicious bugger. Who may not have set pulses racing, but was identifiable, you could buy into him as a leading character. AC II with Ezio was amazing, he was immediately charming and hugely likeable, you really wanted to do your best for him, and although his character waned in Revelations (which was 1 game too far in the franchise), he was always very human. ACIII Connor... I don't know what went wrong with the character development meetings here, but he ain't a leading character. Just could not get on with him at all, don't care about his story, life, motivation, just don't like him at all. Don't get me wrong, I tried a fair few hours of trying to get into this game, but found it non-rewarding, tedious and just plain dull. There is NO hook.
Ok, Desmond... he has been the achilles heel to AC, you play him because you need to get to the story, if you could skip using him, I think everyone would. The games do not even need the Abstergo/Desmond modern part of the story. He's just plain awful. Character Assassination over, now for the other bits...

Game play, yes the free-running is exceptionally fluid, and far more varied than before but, why change the controls? I like having to combine the controls for him to be able to say, jump and grab whilst running, it gives the illusion of more control.

3.0 out of 5 stars What on earth happened!? 17 Nov. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Exclusive Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first time I'm giving an Assassin's Creed game 3/5 stars. All other games in the franchise received excellent ratings from me. Hear me out.

The game is visually stunning as always. The music is outstanding as always. The setting, story, and characters, however, are not as great as they were in the previous instalments. Ezio and even Altair had more charm than Connor, and their stories were more gripping than this one. Now, I had my fun playing this game and there were parts where I said, "wow". But this game is so riddled with bugs that it looks like Ubisoft needed way more time to polish it than they took. And I'm inclined to blame their "Call of Duty" strategy of releasing yearly games for this issue. I thought the combat was the smoothest in Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood, with some complaints about them in Revelations. But the combat and controls in AC 3 can be ridiculously annoying and inaccurate.

As far as multiplayer is concerned, what can I say. I'm not a huge multiplayer person so for a game to suck me into MP mode is actually quite an achievement. So far, I have only managed to log into Multiplayer a few times, thanks to a Ubisoft issue whereby the linking of Ubisoft passport and servers is faulty and it throws people into Limited Mode with no chance of getting online. Having paid the full price for a new game, it is disappointing that one of the main features of the game is inaccessible for many people around the world due to a bug. However, from what I have played so far, the MP is no better than the first time it was introduced in Brotherhood, honestly.
