3.0 out of 5 stars A degree of patience is required 28 Aug 2014
By John Mitchell VINE VOICE
Assassin's Creed 3 is not the third game in the series somewhat confusingly, but does feature the third protagonist in Connor. The game is set in the time of the American Revolution, which on the surface sounds interesting and at times the story is captivating. It does pick up as the story progresses, but does start off slow and to such an extent that it's so dull that it's possible to just lose interest entirely. This could also be linked to the plethora of Assassin's Creed titles over the years which have been churned out with regularity. Another area which does hinder the game and its story early on are the expansive environments and attempting to incorporate elements from other games such as hunting but not really executing them as well.

Connor as a main character has attracted criticism with a personality which is docile and is a cliché character generally in mannerisms. The dialogue from Connor in particular is sometimes delivered more as if it would be found in a Resident Evil game in the feigned delivery. Overall though the story is largely done very well minus some technical glitches which sometimes appear within cutscenes.

The combat has received an overhaul as has the user interface and both are for the worse as combat is awkward and clumsy to execute at times but the free running doesn't feel right either when on roofs or climbing buildings. The gameplay and its change from previous titles is probably the biggest change that has been detrimental to the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but boring 12 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it time 30 Dec 2012
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 19 July 2013
By coup
Verified Purchase
For a fan of the series this was a must have, the open world frontier was a nice change and enjoyable to wander. The storyline did captivate and kept me playing for hours and the new naval battles where a particular highlight. Didn't enjoy this as much as AC Brotherhood but is far better than AC Revelations. Must play for any fans of the AC series.

I'm a big fan of the Assassin's Creed series but was very disappointed with this particular release. I'm currently re-playing it to see if it was really as bad as I remember. It turns out that it's much worse than I remember.

It feels as if the creators took all the really cool elements from the previous games, ditched them and instead took all the annoying elements and made them even worse.

In terms of plot, it's an interesting, if contrived, entry in the saga. The problem is that it takes several light years to get going.

The gameplay is utterly awful - particularly when it comes to combat. I kept finding myself screaming "I'm pushing the f***ing button!" while the character stands still, calmly taking axe blows to the face. And the lockpicking....dear lord, the lockpicking! You're given simple instructions which you follow but then the character randomly decides he can't be bothered and just wants to squat instead - all the while some infuriating group of street urchins with tourettes repeatedly shout "whoa! whoa! whoa!" Not giving the option to kebab them with your hidden blade is one of the biggest downfalls of the game.

And the naval missions! Oh my God! Nice idea but not much fun if you're unable to see in front of you. It feels like some kind of pirate-related Specsavers advert.

The whole thing is a big glitchy, clumsy mess that is frequently beyond frustrating. Fortunately the follow-up, Black Flag, took all the bad bits from AC3 and managed, somehow, to make them really enjoyable elements in a vastly superior game.

I don't feel that I can give this 1 star - after all, a huge amount of work has clearly gone into it, it's a BIG game. However, I want to kill everyone around me after I play it and that can't be healthy.
