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.Read more ›
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!
So you pick up where we left at the end of Revelations - Desmond an co. outside the Grand Temple. Once inside, Juno makes Desmond relapse into a state where he has to be put back into the animus and relive the life of one of his ancestors - Haythem Kenway. Personally I find Haythem to not be much of a likeable character, but he does have some great lines which make you smile. After recovering a strange key, Haythem is set on a journey to America to find the temple, believing that the key in his posession will unlock its entrance. He helps save some tribes-people that live on the land, hoping that in doing so, they'll return the favour by showing him where the temple is. As you'd have it, one of the tribes-people (Ziio) shows him the entrance, once after Haythem kills an English Commander that is. In doing so, Haythem and Ziio form a strange bond and eventually they fall in love, making way for the ancestor we all wish to see - Connor Kenway!
From the start, you're introduced to the new mechanics of the game, all of which have been completely revamped - the controls for instance, which have changed considerably from previous AC titles. The visuals are absolutely mind-blowing, one thing that caught my eye especially was the open sea. (The water - it actually looks like water!Read more ›
So when we heard about the second title starring Ezio, I was more than up for the challenge of moving on to Renaissance Italy, they'd increased the landscape, they gave you more abilities and they also worked on giving the player more gameplay with meticulously researched buildings and the ability to swim (you wouldn't believe how many times poor old Altair drowned whilst I was trying to get some of those flags) with steadily increasing options with additions including guilds and building up your finances through shop purchases. It was innovative, it brought a purpose to collecting money and of course tied it all up with a storyline that was hard to let go.
Then we hit the third outing, this time with Connor Kenway, (birth name Ratonhnhaké:ton) taking the player to the American Colonies during the Revolution. This time, a whole new set of skills, a selection of new weapons with the player managing their homestead to earn finances as well as my favourite part of taking to the High Sea's in your own ship, fighting it out with cannon.
Add to this a top notch storyline, a lavish new fighting style backed up with so many choices to make and you know its something epic, but I've yet to mention one thing, the scale. You thought the other games were big?Read more ›
