Assassin's Creed III Remastered review
Exceptional
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

Product received for free I have a Gaming pc with a gtx 1060 and i7 of the 7th generation and with me the game has only 10 fps?! It's unplayable even on the lowest Settings I only get 30 fps what a shit is that ... Hopefully ubisoft will soon bring a Patch so I can finally rip the Remaster!!! Still, I think it would be a good game because I've already seen it with my Mate.

Product received for free Assassin's Creed III Remastered and all DLCs is Part of AC Odysee's Season Pass. As a Standalone, I would only recommend diehard AC Fans who are not deterred by the old Mission design And the Control that is alien compared to Odysee. AC III was certainly not a bad Game for Release, but nowadays it was simply not up-to-date. The sometimes really very pretty Textures do not help.

I got that game with the Odyssey Season Pass and I've been looking forward to the remaster. I played ACIII a year ago with a lot of fun but I can't remember, that there are that much bugs in it. -Enemies (soldiers and animals) respawn every now and then (stabbed one soldier 25 times, succeeded part of the quest). -Soldiers are not visible on the map, so that you think the area/fort is clear while a row of soldiers is loading their guns behind you. - Stuck in booth, building, bush, tree, rock at least 8 times within 10 hours. Restart neccessary, success lost. - Computer crashes in two out of three passes when leaving the game. (BSOD -apparently- while synchronizing) - game tries to install a lower direct x version every start. Well, I really would give ACIII remastered a chance, but that doesn't make fun.

Product received for free For anyone considering buying the Game (and don't have the Odyssey Season Pass, where it's free to join)-don't do it to you! Why? -the miserable Control (PC version) or almost a lack of Ability to adjust it (many Buttons cannot be awarded) has NOTHING!!! Changed-i.e. also: No car movement, no standard Fast running like in Odyssey-I feel like the Game is lagged and you get so "sea-sick" from the swing of the Swing when you move the Arrow keys as in Unity-the Colors have a Yellowing bite and the Faces see Sometimes strange-the Story is a Matter Of Taste, I didn't like a lot at that time, but that's Subjective-no Achievements My Opinion: Maláka!!! Send AC III Remastered in the Hades and buy something Nice for the €40. Edit: The Original ACIII is no longer for sale at The Request of the publisher on Steam, But Liberation is still available here.
