The good:
- beautifully realised colonial America
- smooth freerunning
- satisfyingly vicious combat
- improved hiding mechanic

The bad:
- patchy control mapping
- unclear freerunning signposts
- awkward combat mapping

The ugly:
- boring protagonist
- contrived plot
- tutorial lasts 3-5 hours - way too long

Let's start with the great things about this game. If you want to stop reading after that, then you haven't got to wade through the numerous negatives to get here.

Improvements are pretty practical, and very welcome. The ability to crouch in long grass/bushes is long overdue, as is the ability to hover at the edge of a wall/surface for a kind of 3rd-person tactical view. Your assassin can also whistle whilst in hiding to distract guards away from key locations, and in general it all feels a bit more tactical than before.

Pre-Independence America is also absolutely gorgeous; wide sunlit roads in Boston, fields of grass glowing in the sunset, the vast, snow-filled frontier. This game looks amazing. Fling yourself from tree to tree (if you're like me, you're singing Monty Python's lumberjack song right now), branch to branch, cliff to cliff, in the most organic freerunning mechanic yet. It's also huge - a big sandbox playground to practice your parkour to your heart's content.

Combat is also satisfyingly visceral and punchy, though not without its flaws. We'll get to those later. In general, when it works, combat is a lot of fun and allows Connor to flow from one enemy to the next as a killing machine. Badassery, pure and simple. And a lot of fun.

Being an avid Assassins Creed fan, I have played all of the games to date. I held off buying this game at first as its reviews were'nt exactly perfect, and after a few hours of playing I soon saw why.

The story is a new one, not a carry on from the previous adventures of Ezio. Which to me, was actually a relief, as I thought the story was beginning to feel a little exhausted and forced. For the majority of the story you will play as an Indian Character named Connor, here you will start off climbing trees and playing hide and seek as a little boy, right up to the adult age of tearing apart hordes of enemiens that we know and love. There are a quite a few twists and turns in this game which I won't spoil for you. I actually enjoyed most of the story, I really began to connect with Connor. But aside from your own personal desires, you begin to lose sight of what is going on around you, and the campaing begins to feel very forced and robotic. It's gripping enough for you to see the end of the game, and even for longer, but it's far from memorable, and the ending is incredibly dissatisfying.

The graphics in this game are beautiful, they are the best yet; as expected. The environments, whether it be the city of New York, or the woodlands of your homestead, it looks great, and they have really worked on the close-ups and charcters in this addition to the franchise. My main criticism in this game would firstly be the weather; rain and snow have been introduced into this game, alot, and although refreshing to see a change, it makes gameplay almost unbareable and just becomes an annoyance. And secondly, the glitching.

Having previously played and loved the other games in the series, I looked forward to this as a shift from the norm but still keeping what made the others great...and it does this...eventually.

The main issue this game has is the horribly long hand holding tutorials. For anyone who's played the series before, having to play for almost 5 hours before they take off the stabilisers is incredibly tedious and I very nearly gave up as I was quite bored.

However once it lets go, the story comes to life, the action increases and the game becomes a quality entry that is well worth playing. Just keep with it!

First of all I would like to state that I am a huge assassins creed fan. ( AC2 and ACB are two of my favourite video games of all time) Let me also mention that this is not a terrible game.

When I first saw the advert for AC3 it go me jumping up with excitement and I simply could not wait to play it. My hopes were quite high considering the fairly disappointing ACR.
When I ultimately did however I felt it was quite slow to start off with, but I thought that would improve with time, it did in someways but not in others. The positives I liked in this game were such improvements such as the graphics, some of the scenery was absolutely breathtaking, especially the open frontier. The story was good if not perhaps a little too annoyingly patriotic and dull in some places but still good and was a good long length. I really liked the idea of playing a Native American warrior type assassin and the naval contracts were ingenious.

However this was still a disappointing game mainly because the protagonist (Connor) is a completely dull and naive character to play. This was a huge step down from the extremely charming and charismatic Ezio the master assassin, or the driven ( if slightly too serious ) Altair. Connor should have been an incredibly empathetic character considering his back-story but instead came across incredibly naive as I said before, at first Connor's naivety made sense considering he hadn't seen the tough and strange streets of populated modern cities of America, however as the years passed I felt he was still gullible and could never quite piece things together, like he always had to go to someone for help and then go kill someone and repeat.At least the disappointing Assassins creed revelations had the strong and interesting character of Ezio to keep it interesting.
