Horrible

Assassins Creed 3 :(

What an epic disapointment this game was. The first hour of this game is spent boringly running from cut scene to cut scene. The battle sequences are so easy that a 6 year old could easily slaughter a regiment of solders. With two button presses your character will block an incoming attack and stab and slash your enemy half a dozen times. With way points every ten feet in front of you, you wont have to wonder which direction to go. A fixed camera directly behind your character puts him squarly in the middle of the screen, cutting off most of your view of the surroundings and making camera angles seem jerky when turning corners. The fluidity of movement has gone way down hill. Your character stands straight up even while performing elaborate sword attacks. Even the movement in the cutscenes seems awkward and un-natural. Faces appear to be glossy and hard, with very little movement outside of the mouth area. It would seem that in trying to keep things fresh and updated, the creators have completly changed this game, it no longer feels like an Assassins creed game, but something else entirely. I was a huge fan of the first two titles, but I was only able to stomach this one for a few hours before sending it back. Thank god I used game fly on this one instead of wasting sixty dollars of my own money.

A Real Departure from what AC once was...

Well, I hate to say it but this one really tore it for me and may be the last AC I play. Ubisoft just took it too far and released, imo, what is by far the weakest game in the series. There are glaring glithces, the story is lame and the ending is just shy of garbage. Overall, I struggle to call AC3 a real AC game. I remember back to the days of 1 and 2 where I was REALLY into the story, the characters and the mechanics. Even Brotherhood and Revelations, while not as good as the first two, were solid titles. Tragically, this game just absolutely falls off the cliff.
