I found this game quite cinematic and immersive. The story is great, you always learn a couple of things with these games. I don't want to ruin the game to anyone, so I won't comment anything about the game itself. All I have to say is that from the first 20 minutes, I was aware of how good this game was going to be. Play it!
Had a lot of fun playing this game.Zenivo | Sept. 4, 2014 | See all Zenivo's reviews »
This was my first Assassin's Creed game and had lots of fun playing this. I am huge fan of stealth/assassination and open world games, so that is why I enjoyed it a lot too. I got kind of confused by the simulation thing, because I thought you were really in the time you were in, but it's a simulation. But that only increased how much fun I had. Sometimes it was pretty hard, sometimes easy, sometimes normal difficulty. I'm not sure about other Assassin's Creed games, but I heard they're worth playing aswell, which I will probably do someday. I recommend this game to someone who likes stealth/assassination games, because that is what this game is about.

This review contains slight spoilers Stabby, Stab, Stab. It may be the weakest in the series, I think that it takes up a lot to set a game in the American Revolution and make it interesting and Ubisoft are yet to disappoint in this assassination outing. The combat system and the free-running has been revamped and is much easier to use, yeah there may be no lock-on any more but really it makes sense as a design choice.On that note the combat animations look awesome and the double counters are pretty awesome as well.The stealth is a bit clunky at times but the AI has been improved so they aren't as dumb as before but can be tricked pretty easily for some pretty funny mishaps and it feels much more hectic being chased as well. The setting ultimately lets the game down though, with too many god damn trees, which make the free running confusing and also it becomes hard to tell when guards will and wont stop you when your perched up there waiting for your next kill nor are the building high enough to be awe inspiring. The characters are great except the main character Connor who is unbearably arrogant and I swear at one point I wondered what he offered for the creed or even why he was an assassin plus the tutorial is like a couple hours so get ready for a long journey, and don't think its going to be a super interesting journey either because the story lost me most of the way and I just killed whoever they told me to to get to this Charles Lee guy who Connor seemed more interested in than Fan girls to Justin Beiber. But in the end it's still a good addition to your Creed Collection + Combat has been improved + Looks Great + Characters are pretty engaging - Except for the idiot of a main character - Setting choice wasn't the greatest - Long tutorial sequence
An All new Game, All new Hero, Still as refreshing and Fun? No.khawaja07 | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all khawaja07's reviews »
Assassin's Creed III features an All New hero in shape of Connor Kenway, a Red Indian who is peacefully living with his mother in his village when all of a sudden, things go extremely wrong and just like Ezio & his family, Conner along with his village suffers the wrath of the British Templars. The game is set in Colonial America before its Independence. You are left as the last Assassin in Colonial America and its your mission to avenge your loved ones and not let the Templars succeed in their mission of stopping the Resistance fighters from getting their freedom and Liberating America from the British tyrants! Desmond Miles unlike previous games has a much more important role in this game and will decide how the world faces the monumental task of preparing for the end of 2012! With It, it also wraps up the story of Desmond Miles. This entry in the Assassin's Creed series is built using a highly upgraded version of the Anvil Engine. This new upgrade helps in extending the open world architecture as a whole. AC III features the biggest Open World, the series has seen so far. It includes a whole jungle full of active Wildlife, you can hunt different kinds of animals, sheathe their skins, etc. You can also build your own Homestead, climb and traverse through trees in the jungle and in the cities. Some new weapons are introduced in the series for the first time, including Rifles, Bows, Tomahawks,etc. Ship sailing and battles are also introduced for the first time in the series and are really well done, you can take control of your own ship, recruit your crew and lead them to victory! The game itself looks somewhat better than the previous games in the series as it includes an upgraded quality of texture and character model assets as well as an all new beautifully crafted part of the world to play in. However, this iteration feels rushed while it was being developed and because of that, i experienced many gameplay and graphical Glitches.Unlike the previous AC games, Assassin's Creed III is not that finely optimized for PC, it sometimes stutters while you're traversing through its world and the framerate barely stays at 60 FPS and dips all the time. Overall, Assassin's Creed III feels pretty rushed and an over-hyped title, which doesn't really live up to it. It has some really nicely made parts at the start of the game but as the game proceeds forwards, it becomes worse each time. The ship battles in the seas are pretty fun to play through and are the most well done feature of the game. So yea, buy this game when its in the bargain bin or otherwise don't buy it at all, its up to you.

Assassin's Creed franchise returns again. In the third part of great assassin series developers from Ubisoft bring us to the USA of the XVIIIth century. Main hero - Connor Kenway or simply Ratohnhaketon, son of Englishman Haytham Kenway and Native American Ziio, fights for the United States freedom against British expansion. The war becomes a great opportunity for European Templars to spread their influence in new land and Connor decides to stop the evil order. Storyline is excellent and it makes you to return to AC III again and again (unfortunately the ending of the game is not so cool as fans want to see - thanks to the limited time of creation the developers had to reduce final missions). The graphic level of new AC is amazing: faces, buildings, motion, forests, sea, rocks - everything is very and very awesome! (slight drawback is a small height of buildings, but we must understand that the USA cities of that time wasn't very large). Gameplay has changed: controls become more comfortable, appeared some new opportunities such as climbing trees and rocks, archery, conning a ship, playing games (chess and checkers), hunting animals, fast city travel. I also want to distinguish AC III: Lorne Balfe made real masterpiece and main theme is unbelievably cool!!! You realy enjoy playing this game, (IT'S AWESOME!) AC III is an excellent game which can become a great addition for real AC fan and players who prefer third person games.
