When I got the game and opened it, I tried to enter the code, but got an invalid message. I read through the manuals and saw that the code did only last until March 31st. I was not informed by this in any way.
I mean amazon should have informed me of this before my purchase.
Just a little heads up to the people buying this version for the exclusive content.
The game has four main problems. First, the character of Connor - a half-English, half-Native hybrid out for revenge against the Templars who burned down his village - comes across as little else than a hot-blooded brat, spouting platitudes about `freedom' like a broken record. He has none of the likability or gravitas of AC2's Ezio Auditore, against whose legacy he pales. It was very difficult to invest emotionally in the character, and ultimately, his story, despite an enthralling backdrop and a strong set of villains. Connor's blandness is also a particular disappointment given the exceptional quality of the first three sequences of the game, during which the player steps into the boots of Connor's father, Haytham, whose moral complexity and quiet charisma made him a sumptuous aperitif preceding a half-baked main.
Second, although the world is vast, much of the gameplay (especially the side missions) just feels like filler. This has always been true of Assassin's Creed to some extent, but Ubisoft managed to mix it up a lot more in AC2, pulling it off with such verve that it was rarely a chore.Read more ›
The game is visually stunning as always. The music is outstanding as always. The setting, story, and characters, however, are not as great as they were in the previous instalments. Ezio and even Altair had more charm than Connor, and their stories were more gripping than this one. Now, I had my fun playing this game and there were parts where I said, "wow". But this game is so riddled with bugs that it looks like Ubisoft needed way more time to polish it than they took. And I'm inclined to blame their "Call of Duty" strategy of releasing yearly games for this issue. I thought the combat was the smoothest in Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood, with some complaints about them in Revelations. But the combat and controls in AC 3 can be ridiculously annoying and inaccurate.
As far as multiplayer is concerned, what can I say. I'm not a huge multiplayer person so for a game to suck me into MP mode is actually quite an achievement. So far, I have only managed to log into Multiplayer a few times, thanks to a Ubisoft issue whereby the linking of Ubisoft passport and servers is faulty and it throws people into Limited Mode with no chance of getting online. Having paid the full price for a new game, it is disappointing that one of the main features of the game is inaccessible for many people around the world due to a bug. However, from what I have played so far, the MP is no better than the first time it was introduced in Brotherhood, honestly.Read more ›
At the beginning, I was drawn in to the era and the feel for the game and graphically it is breath taking in paces, and you actually get to take Desmond on some fun outings. The arrival of the Naval missions is the best plus by far you do actually feel like you are sailing a ship of the time period.
Unfortunately, there the good news ends. The supposedly improved free run controls have actually slowed the game down, due to constantly running in to walls / trees / cliffs that cannot be climbed and just jumping up and down for several seconds whilst the group of soldiers you were trying to escape from run up and attack.
The story line which I have to admit was interesting to start just didn't develop for my liking. I feel a lot more could have been done with the arena and characters available. The worst thing for me has to be the extra 100% sync conditions (I had no problem in the earlier editions as they were sensible and made the game a little more edgy). Unfortunately in this edition there are too many for my liking. Most missions end up with three and sometimes four different sync points. This just seems to take a beautiful open game and put that many constrictions on it, it feels very linear. I seemed to be too busy checking what I had to do and what extra conditions were being added as I played the mission that I was loosing interest in what I was actually doing.Read more ›
