Unfortunately, no. After two unnumbered releases, everyone was excited to see what Ubisoft had in store with this one. The trailers were great, and people were anxiously looking to what could be the next big step in the Assassin's Creed franchise. That was not the case, though. The new setting, Colonial USA, sets a new standard of beauty for the series, but it doesn't captivate as much as previous settings. The new protagonist, Connor, is not nearly as charismatic as Ezio, a fan favorite. However, he looks awesome. It really gives you a powerful feel to play as him. The plot... well... it's "aaright". It's not as good as Assassin's Creed 2 or Brotherhood, but not as shallow as Revelations. It brings more emphasis into the modern time, and you'll know more about why everything happens and especially more about Desmond. And the gameplay brings new good stuff, new bad stuff, improves on some things and worsen others. You can now parkour on trees which is awesome. It works surprisingly well. My main gripe with the gameplay aspect is the AI. It's worse that it has ever been. You'll fail a lot trying to get 100% synchronisation on missions because of that. In the end, Assassin's Creed 3 is a worthy addition to the series. Unlike Revelations, this one brings good reasons for you to play it. It's not as good as AC2 or Brotherhood, but it's nice.
For me, this Assassins Creed introduced some very impressive game play, especially with the combat system. I found that with the combat system, it was both simple and fun to get used to, making the game feel exhilarating during its combat phases. On a side note, i also found that the story line of this game was very well thought out, just a couple of parts didn't really make sense to me. Overall i thought that this was a very enjoyable game from start to finish, just a couple of things could of been touched up on a little better.
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!
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
