Assassin’s Creed III review
by Luke Irvin

This game is very underrated in my opinion, and does not deserve the hate I frequently see online. DISCLAIMER: I am rating based on the Remastered version. Everything is near perfect. A lot of the bugs from the previous games are not present. As a matter of fact, aside from a few comical graphical and audio bugs, it was pretty much bug-free, unlike the predecessor which had mission breaking bugs. This game takes the classic Assassin's Creed formula of Viewpoint-faction quest-viewpoint-treasure so-on so-forth, and turns it on its head. Once the game opens up, pretty much EVERYTHING is opened up, and let me tell you, it's a lot. The hunting mechanics are top-tier. The combat is some of the best I have played in a game. The story is amazing. My only complaint with the story is there are many times a mission will end super abrupt and you are just left there confused. This is especially prevalent in the Homestead Quests. Ironically however, some of the best moments in the game are found in those quests. Overall a must-play, for anyone who enjoys the Assassin's Creed series, and also even games like Red Dead Redemption.

Connor is a bore, verticality is gone and combat is now full on autopilot

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.

So I'm just ahead of the 100% and I can say. It IS the best Game I've ever played and I haven't played little. ^^ The Story: The Game takes a lot of Time with the Story and that's a good Thing, so you can get used to the Characters and build a (well, let's call it) bond. From the Middle of the Game (so Beginning Sequence 6) the right Templar hunt begins and the Story starts to captivate you properly. Only the Desmond End drops out a bit mau. The Mission's Design: The Mission's Design is simply top, there are beautiful Detachment Rich main Missions that can sometimes be quiet. To the Side missions I can say that many are rather average and some tell a nice Side Story such as the settlement missions. In these Side Missions you build your Settlement and get to know some nice NPCs that quickly become your Friends and you can make some new Things after getting rid of a Settlement Mission. Gameplay: Here I can just say that I am very satisfied with the Control. I honestly give it to I never really came to terms with the control of the Predecessors, but that hasn't stopped me from continuing to play them out. (They're damn good Games anyway) Negatives: The Game has quite a lot of Bugs, Glitches and other Bugs which is certainly due to the then not good PC port. In Addition, Opponents can sometimes Attack someone because some have not done anything (this often happens in New York) or that a Tavern in Boston is missing. I don't know that this was a detailed Review now and I'm sure 1,000 spelling And Grammar errors are included, but I don't care at first. I give this Game 10/10 Points because it always surprises me (besides, Connor doesn't have Nipples XD).
not as trash as everyone thinks and connors likeable fuck yall
The game does not reveal the character. In the Assassin's Creed II, we were shown how the main character passed the path of becoming an assassin. Here we just say" it's been a few months " and so on throughout the main story... they don't even give us an explanation for what we're doing. And that makes your character stupid.
Ubisoft apparently said "We're sick of making good Assassin's Creed games" when they went to the drawing board for this one.

What an unmitigated shitshow.

Doing aerial assassinations left me falling through the ground and then continuing to fall for all eternity (or until I restarted, whichever came first) on many occasions.

Early in the game, my tomahawk disappeared from my inventory and never came back.

The story sounds like M. Night Shyamalan's worst effort ever.

The ending is obvious to anyone that knows anything whatsoever about American history.

I beat the game, but I don't feel like I "won" anything. Colossal waste of time and money.
