4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't live up to expectations. [SPOILER FREE] 30 Nov. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
First off I want to say I enjoyed the game, and I'm still playing it, but there are so many things about it that frustrated me.

Join or Die Edition: What comes with this? In the box you get a medallion in a pouch, Washington's diary, an extra mission which is a side mission really, and some small multiplayer features, and a costume. None of them are vital to game and in all honesty i'm not sure why i bought this special edition. The diary is mildly interesting, and give some backstory to certain characters and Washington's life with some artwork. The medallion is...well it's a medallion not much to do with it really. Decoration? Anyway...

Bad points:

- The game isn't polished. This will be fixed in patches, but when I buy new game I expect it to be done! I experienced frame rate drops, graphics and resolution glitches, bugs in the environment and cutscenes where the character's won't be in sync with sound or their mouths won't move when they talk. Some of these aren't major but they're noticeable and take me out of the game a little.
- The story. Upon a first play through, I rushed through it rather fast, and it doesn't live up to previous AC stories. Some parts needed more explanation other final boss fights where underwhelming. Some missions, especially chase ones are extremely hard to get 100% sync on, which you need to unlock a costume and are more frustrating than fun. The worst part was definitely the ending. Massive disappointment. I think the story could have been longer and wrapped up some little loose ends or given up more choice- it was quite linear. You saw the epic trailers? You get to do none of that. The big battle sequences don't give you the freedom to approach how you like, you just sneak about the back, unlike how the trailer demonstrated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth the extra money 4 Nov. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is very good, awesome multiplayer and customization but the book you get is hard to read because the writing is old fashion and it takes twice as long as normal writing to read and the coin isn't that great.

4.0 out of 5 stars "how d'ya like them apples!" 21 Oct. 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the 5th AC game.

You start off in good old England, or London to be precise, as Haytham Kenway and you are to attend a theatre play called the Beggar's Opera (which is a political comedy) in order to assassinate a friend.

You will play as this character for 3 full chapters and they can be some of the most soul destroying, will draining, slow chapters ... and yet they are in a way better than what follows. At the end of the first run though of chapter 3 you will get a trophy and you will understand the title of this review.

When you hit chapter 4 you finally meet Connor - first as a child, then in his teens, and then his twenties (though he does not age well - I thought he'd jumped to 40-something but everyone still refers to him as "boy").

From then on you have to put up with Connor, and Connor makes Desmond look like the most interesting character you've met - until you remember Ezio and then wonder why they couldn't have given Connor a personality. Connor has no emotionality to him at all (most of the time he comes over quite sulky) - whether that was deliberate or just bad voice acting by Noah Watts. Every line is delivered as if the actor was bored. I really did miss Roger Craig Smith's talent.

With animation of any sort you need the characterisation to come through the voice acting in order to make a connection with the characters, and in this case it failed for me.

I love the Assassin's Creed games and I was really looking forward to this one - it was one of the few games of 2012 that I bothered to pre-order - and yet ...

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say? I'm an AC fan 8 Aug. 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I own every other Assassin's Creed games and I've completed them 100%, all trophies, all collectables, all Sync missions. EVERYTHING. Why? Because I like to do it.

I saw some people weren't pleased with the collectors edition of the game. I don't know about them but everytime someone comes into my room and they see my Collectors edition display or my game library(proud!) and they look at this big ass coin they are blown away! I also enjoyed reading the diary of Washington.

The game itself is good, it was some twists I didn't see, the ending is once again rought. We know they will milk the franchise, we know they will release another game, but come on explain somethings.

I would recommend it to people who want to check this new Assassin instead of Ezio the Assassin we loved and we miss.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, dull and ...er dull! 13 Mar. 2013

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
What a shame. Turgid gameplay, tedious action, boring storyline. I have played and enjoyed all previous games in the Assassin's Creed franchise. This is the only one I have given up on, because it is totally boring.

No wonder they made the trailers look so good to lure us in. Don't waste your time and money on this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars One of the weaker entries in the series
As a huge fan of the Creed series, I was very disappointed in this entry in the main canon. If you like AC, play all the others except the first before venturing here.
