About

Assassin's Creed III is the fifth game of the series, preceded by the first chapter taking place in the time of the Third Crusade and by the Ezio trilogy, positioning itself in the times of the Italian Renaissance (1476-1499). It is the 3rd person action adventure with an accent on exploring and hunting
During the new installment, the player is set to make way through the American Revolution, while being on both side of a conflict — our hero has English father and Mohawk mother, which tears him apart. Such conflicts serve as the leitmotif through the entirety of a game — not only we are choosing sides to fight on in the Civil War, but also we are facing the decisions of choosing Assassins' or Templar's side.
As it is common in the Assasin's Creed games, the gameplay concentrates profoundly around fighting the multiple enemies all at once, parkouring off walls and micro-management: selling resources, exchanging ships and so on. The Assassin's Creed III, however, highlights the hunting and simultaneous use of two weapons as the new in-game features.

Assassin’s Creed III reviews and comments

«Assassin's Creed III» is an impressive visual experience offering detailed urban environments, forested terrains and misty «Civil War» battlefields.
Players travel through various historical locations, completing quests, exploring the world and engaging in exciting battles. We will meet many historical figures, including Ben Franklin, who offers players various quests and assistance in their adventures.
Also an important aspect of the game is that players get to actively play as Desmond for the first time, completing missions in real time and utilizing his assassin skills. I think a lot of people have been waiting for this
A bit of a mixed bag. The story this time around is great again, but the overhauled engine simplifies combat a bit too much and what it tries to make up in parkour falls flat due to world design. Also this is where historic characters started to become an afterthought or relegated to side content instead of ingrained into the story.
Uninteresting story, unlikeable protagonist, too easy gameplay (automatic healing, extremely easy fights). American landscape here (both cities and nature) is absolutely ugly (both aestheticaly and from gameplay point of view). At least I liked assassin's missions set in modern days.
I don't hate this one as much as a lot of folks do. The Homestead was satisfying. I wish they'd bring something like that back.
What kept this game bearable for most of the way was the unique setting; I've never had the opportunity to explore revolutionary America before. Plus, I liked the characters and how the game presents moral ambiguities. However, it is ridiculous how easy the whole series has been so far; it's practically a casual/mobile game. The optional objectives should sometimes be required (to make the mission harder), and other times they shouldn't be there at all (to eliminate filler). The game seems to be more than 50% filler. I do not want to collect a bunch of stupid feathers — I'm supposed to be an assassin, not Super Mario!
«Game over at last!»
Connor is a bore, verticality is gone and combat is now full on autopilot
«Boooring»
«Game over at last!»
6/10
«Sit back and relax»

Assassin'S Creed III Marks the beginning of a new Chapter. The Story takes place in the Cities of Boston and New York, America at the Very beginning of Settlement, The Atmosphere is atmospheric and full of Life. Much more than in previous Parts. The Question for me is whether this can be surpassed in the following Parts. Famous People meet one there. The Graphics here are once again much better and Contrast more than in the Predecessors. I can see The Weather Effects. Storm at Sea, Lightning and high Swell are very handsome. When Connor runs through the Snow, he sacks in the same and progresses harder than without Snow. Just to give a few Details. There are many Innovations. One of them, and certainly the largest, is the Ship's Battle, which I think is superbly designed. I have absolutely nothing to fault here. Through Side Missions, for example, you can build your own Village. The Settlers then also have different Professions. The Hunting System is a good Idea, it is somehow lacking sense. For Farcry 4 e.g. (Yes also with Farcry 3;-)). If you make different Utensils out of your Coat, which make some things easier. But why go hunting at Assassin's Creed III? Because we're just wondering, what do Pirates and Native Americans have to do with Assasins? Even if the Game is very entertaining, you still need to get used to it for a While. Connor may not seem as sympathetic as Ezio, but it's definitely Fun to experience the Story with him. I would definitely buy the Game again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGyZ4VGKjho&list=PL3G9x-z3LOuFx-SyJRDVfw4i6rX6DFYYq
