So I bought Assassins Creed III, played it for a short while, found it boring and sold it. I have been in two minds about this game, reading the reviews here on Amazon over and over, an then jumped into a cart of hay and bought it. Just brilliant, perhaps it is the story, perhaps it is the fact that for some reason this game just clicked or perhaps it is because you are a pirate. You can't beat running at a soldier with your swords out and cutting them down, or sneaking up on them from behind or from a great height and assassinating them. Even hunting for crocodiles, dear etc. to increase your health or make inventory items is just great fun. I sometimes find myself just running/sailing around looking for treasure, animus fragments or contract assassinations. Steering a ship through the open seas is immense fun and you can sail to islands for mini side missions, not mention you can upgrade your ship so it can tackle larger enemy ships. The graphics or stunning, very crisp and clear, makes you want to jump right into the game. So what makes this better on the Wii U than on those other consoles, drum roll please, the GamePad is utilised as a map to which you can set a marker or access your inventory or objectives, and the game looks stunning and plays so well on the 6.7inch screen. Once again Nintendo the Wii U is amazing and this game is a showboat (pun intended) for what the Wii U can do.
