I really enjoyed it!WestheadUK | Feb. 10, 2014 | See all WestheadUK's reviews »
This game is so beautiful that you won't put the controller down for hours. I got this game around Christmas time and I've been playing a lot every single day and I've being having the same amount of fun that I was having when I first started to play it. The game is full of awesome stuff to do, you can do the normal Assassins Creed things such as climb high buildings and free-run across rooftops at fast-speeds but Assassins Creed gives you access to some other exciting features which makes the game what it is. With the game you have full-access to the surrounding areas around the cities (like the other games) and you can ride horseback if you wish to quickly travel but actually travelling from city to city can actually be fun by travelling on foot as mid-way there are many different hunting locations where you can hunt animals such as deers, rabbits, wolves and even bear.
Let's not forget the ships also, the game introduces the ships into the game since it's set around the era. You actually get to take control of a warship and you take control of the men on-board. You sail out to sea and battle with rival pirates, it's a whole lot of fun.
This game is definitely a 100/100. Assassins Creed have made some changes and have decided to go down a different path with this game, and the changes turned out very well indeed.

Watching the various trailers and gameplay demos, I was definitely hoping this entry would shake up things more. But once again I was disappointed in an AC game.
The story this time could be very interesting and gripping, but bad gameplay mecanics and incredibly tedious game design just bogs it down. Missions that involve running around a small area warning houses of impending troops, stealth missions and worst of all; "listen in on a conversation" missions. It's hard to believe that the developers actually think that it is an interesting gameplay mechanic.
The best aspect of this game is the naval combat. The only thing that would make me come back after I've beaten the game. Not surprising that the next game was exactly that.
Pretty decent game!DarthEaglePrime | Nov. 21, 2013 | See all DarthEaglePrime's reviews »
I actually liked this game a lot. Not my favorite in the series, but it was very fun to play. It has overhauled the graphics and a slight increase in the fighting however it is more of the same. It could have been much better. the multiplayer is where this game really stands out. It is very fun when playing with friends. That is why I am not that hyped about Black Flag where I think it will be more or less the same thing but with pirates. I hope I´m wrong on this.

Assassin’s creed 3 is a whole new overhaul of the assassin’s creed franchise. They update the hud and the combat system and a lot more. I personally love these new changes. The combat is much more fluent and not just blocking and countering. I also love the new sea battles it is an excellent addition to the game. Also the game has an exciting multiplayer with unlockables and a good leveling system. The bad part is it barely has any people playing it, at least on pc. Overall I love this game and it is a worthy addition to the series. If you loved the other games you will love this one.
An incredible disappointmentpredatorpulse7 | Oct. 16, 2013 | See all predatorpulse7's reviews »
I absolutely love this series. Played all the titles before this and was amazed so naturally I was extremely hyped for AC3, even with the mild disappointment of Revelations. I can’t believe how much Ubisoft managed to screw things up with this one. First off, the good: Graphics are pretty much great and unlike others, I had few glitches, soundtrack is ok(though it never reaches the heights of the previous OST’s),multiplayer is still solid and the naval missions are incredibly fun. The bad: -Main character is one of the most boring protagonists I’ve ever seen in a game, made even worse by the fact that he follows one of the most charismatic in Ezio. -The setting does not gel that well with the previous AC outings, there are only a couple of tall buildings and even those one pale in comparison to the cityscapes we climbed in the Middle East, Italy and Constantinopole. -gameplay is even more simplified than before. You literally can’t fall off buildings unless you press space and combat is simplified even further by slowing down during fighting sequences that make it nearly impossible to lose unless you are somehow physically or mentally challenged. In short, there is no challenge even though combat looks pretty cool. -the tutorial sequence is wayyyyy too long. I understand that they wanted to introduce Haytham and young Connor but it dragged on too much for my liking. -the trading system is pointless because you can only earn money with it, money with which you buy weapons and such but you don’t need them because Connor can slay every man from west to east with his DEFAULT weapons. -the ending is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen, it was almost insulting. My conclusion on this game after 2-3 days of playing came after air assassinating a bunny in the forest and gathering my gazzilionth trinket(and there are A TON of collectibles in this game). I started pondering: WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING? Isn’t this a game about ASSASSINS? Why the hell am I doing pointless stuff in the frontier instead of killing important figures in sprawling urban centers? I mean, there were chores in AC1/AC2 and following installments but they didn’t feel so much like chores and they were somehow integrated into the story. The feathers you collected gave you a minor cutscene in the end and there weren’t as many pointless distractions as there are in this game. The game keeps distracting you from the main storyline to hide the fact that it is pretty goddam awful(and that’s saying something as far as AC games are concerned), serving more as a vehicle for cameos for the heroes of the American Revolution than an actual story where our hero undergoes some sort of life challenging journey. Buy it if you’re a fan of the AC series but don’t get your hopes up. Single player has the worst campaign since AC1 but at least the multiplayer saves the day somewhat. A playable disappointment.
