Glitchy & unstable,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Assassin's Creed 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)As good as the game is, and it is very very good, sadly its got irritating bugs and glitches that prevent it from being amazing.
For instance, very occasionally, and for no apparent reason, my mouse stops working in the game. It still works in the menus but I have no camera control in the game, forcing me to restart the game.
The first time I played the game and was doing the first mission in the opera house, when I climbed the first ladder the screen went pink. There was the sound playing in the background and the game was actually still running, just the screen was pink. After restarting the game it did not happen again, but did not bode well for something like that to happen so soon into the game.
I have also seen character models suspended in mid air with screwed up ragdoll physics making them ping about all over the place.
I've only been playing about 3 hours so far and I'm really enjoying the game, apart from the various bugs that need sorting out.

Its funny, I've heard about all the glitches you mention and yet I have been playing the game all weekend and have'nt had any trouble what so ever. I have been using a 360 gamepad instead of the mouse/keyboard (I know some people don't like using a gamepad on a PC but seriously, they cost about £20 and they just suit a game like this so much more in my opinion).
The only trouble I have had with this game (and I'd be interested to know if others have had the same problem) is when I turn anti-aniliasing up to the 'Very High' setting all of a sudden I can see the framework in all the graphics. By turning it down to 'High' I have no problem though, so not the end of the world.
I'm sympathetic to your problems and if others are having similar trouble then so be it, but from my own personal experiences so far I'd say this is one of the finer console-to-PC ports I've seen in a long time. Even Ubisoft's Uplay feature is extremely easy to use and completely inobtrusive. After the mess they made with Assassin's Creed 2 I think this is certainly a step in the right direction for the company.
