Assassin's Creed III: Remastered review
by bgsmith3

Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered Bundle- 4/5 I was very excited to hear that Ubisoft would be remastering and releasing Assassin’s Creed III. Assassin’s Creed III is one of my favorite entries in the franchise and was a great breath of fresh air after three games centered on the same character (Ezio). It was time for the franchise to move on, and it seemed that Ubisoft recognized that. The setting was fantastic and was the first time that a game such as this was set in the American Revolution. The only time that I am aware of the American Revolution being featured in a video game is usually in strategy games. But this was a very immersive and fun experience and one of my favorites in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. A remaster of the PS Vita game, Assassin’s Creed Liberation is also featured in this remaster. It isn’t that impressive to me, it still feels clunky and is obviously a port over and some of the things don’t work so well on console, but it was still a fun game as well.

Assassin’s Creed Liberation- 3 ½ / 5
Assassin’s Creed Liberation is set between 1765-1777 and follows Aveline de Grandpre,an African-French assassin and the franchise’s first female protagonist. The game centers around her uncovering a Templar conspiracy and attempting to halt their attempts to control New Orleans during the end of the French and Indian War. The game was released in 2012 and takes place alongside the events in Assassin’s Creed III. The game is restored fairly well, but it seems like some of the things in the game could not be restored to cutting edge current graphics and visuals. The story is very bare bones, sadly, and is the only thing that really gets me through the game. There really isn’t a replay factor in the game and there isn’t much to do outside of the story. The gameplay and mechanics are a little quirky and don’t translate well to console, like many things. There are no side missions, really, and the open world does feel rather empty. It’s still a fun game, but it feels rather abrupt and devoid of a lot of the fun and beauty that the main entries of the franchise possess.

Assassin’s Creed III- 5/5
Released in 2012, Assassin’s Creed III serves as the finale of the first trilogy of games (though technically it is the culmination of 4 or maybe 5 other games that had been released in the franchise). The game centers on Desmond Miles as he races to stop the impending global devastation that was foretold by the First Civilization. To do this, he must relive the memories of his colonial ancestors and discover clues to the whereabouts of a means to protect the Earth and humanity from this global catastrophe. The Assassin’s Creed series seems to always push forward. The franchise had yet to go back in history further than its predecessors. The Colonial America setting was such a breath of fresh air from the European or Middle Eastern setting that dominated the series. The story is one of my favorites of the series both in terms of the genetic memories and the modern day (2012) storyline, though I will admit the modern day story does slip up here and there. The historic characters are given a very objective appraisal and some of the issue that colonial America neglected to approach (slavery) are made abundantly clear in the game. The open world is fantastic and beautiful to explore and the side missions and freedom to hunt or upgrade your homestead (similar to Monteriggioni or Rome in AC II and Brotherhood) The remaster, to me, is fine. I don’t see anything wrong with it and Ubisoft did a very good job with updating the visuals without overhauling the entire game. Looking back, the Season Pass I bought for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was worth it.

If I'm honest, the game is even worse than Odyssey. The Graphics are schei * * *, tone doesn't come at all, there's only subtitles without Conversations. I compare to odyssey. Odyssey is much better than this scrappy game. For luck, it was as a Gift thanks to Season Pass. I still find Origins much better than these new Games. There is a lot of mystical and Magic. It's just more Fun than odyssey and AC3
