Assassin's Creed 3, though losing the charm of the Italian Renaissance, is still greatly inspiring to play, putting the character in the setting of the Civil War. The story is compelling, providing more play for Desmond as well as Connor, and having an ending making the future of the series harder to guess beyond Black Flag. The cities in the game, Boston, New York and briefly Philadelphia are again fantastic and provide the same detail and love as previous Assassin's games have, and overall this game is worth playing for any fan of it's play style.

Beautiful, strange. The one time 'Nothing is true, everything is possible' game has become something else. Maybe this could be applied to the multiplayer? Anyway, this game puts you on a strictly set path for the mission parts. And I mean it, jump slightly off the course in a chase scene and you de-sync (die). There is a lot of open-worldliness in the frontier and many achievements to go along with that side of the game. These two aspects are practically fractured from one another.
Multiplayer is fun, tons and tons of customization options for looks and abilities. Thankfully there is now a solid counter to the infamously op smoke bomb. You can spend real money to get stuff instead of using legitimately acquired 'animus points'. Bugs are everywhere in single player, I had a bear get stuck halfway underwater near me preventing me from looting tons of loot. I had a cannon ball get stuck in the air with its fast-moving air graphics all around it. The games you can play in bars and such are way harder than its worth to ever play them.
Overall quality is great with it still being very much the same game, a watered down story and a deeper open-world aspect as well as deeper multiplayer. When has this series ever not been mildly annoying? I love having to overcome something, but sometimes its just downright annoying. Worth playing if only for multiplayer. Despite some shortcomings on expectations I still have to say I love this game and got way into it this time around.
Brilliant Action Title worth every pennyMattyLB | April 28, 2013 | See all MattyLB's reviews »

You get to follow the continuing the story of Desmond as you will delve back in time to the American Revolution where you'll take control of Connor, 50% Native Indian and 50% half British Assassin who demands answers and seeks to protect his people.
The templars are closing in fast and Desmond and his crew are still on the run and are still looking to prevent the end of the world, so business as usual :).
In the past things are a little more volatile. the game is constantly overshadowed with the fact that just around the corner there is some huge battle raging on as the Templar-controlled British forces close in on the Patriots. So who will win the long fight for america?

AC3 is awesome, but you can't help but feel that the game is unpolished. It has some great new features (the naval missions are amazing!) and the story is good. AC3 also has a good variety of gameplay and a fun combat system (more challenging this time around). But it still comes down to the problem of the game feeling unfinished, a lot of small bugs, missions bugging out, animations, characters glitching and more small things that takes you out of the "feeling" of the game. The worst problem is the performance issues, 10-20 fps in Boston on a medium to high end PC which is really bad. I actually couldnt play this game beacuse of the poor performance (had a quad core 3,1 + a 6950), luckily I was getting a new computer anyways. With a brand new 1000 $ computer i couldn't max out this game, played on minimum settings to get max fps (got a steady 60 fps on low). All in all AC3 is a good game but could have been so much better...
