Just finished this game and thought I'd give it a review. The story is entertaining and original. It is a breath of fresh air to play a story that takes place in the revolutionary war. However, the ending of the game (in my personal opinion) was disappointing. Extremely disappointing.
As original as the story was, it isn't strong enough to compensate for the irratic game controls. I cannot count how many times I was running to catch someone in Boston or NYC (or was running away from a group of angry redcoats), only to have the character unexpectedly cling on to a ledge or climb. The button used to run is also the button one uses to climb buildings and such. This is most frustrating when trying to complete a mission that is either timed or relies on the chase of a character. This happened so many times that I nearly grew tired of the game and sent it back. Alas, I hung in there to finish it, again to an subpar ending.
The game is a breath of fresh air, but the game controls are extremely frustrating. Add to the fact that the ending was awkward, and it equates to a disappointing game that didn't measure up to its potential.

When the game loads, the sounds and sights of the 18th century bring you into a world of excellence. Attempting to address the American Revolution, UbiSoft does a fantastic job of bringing it to life. But, when you actually play as your assassin, UbiSoft falls back onto the AC1 standards, and leave you bored and longing to replay "Red Dead Redemption" when you want to hunt animals.
Everything except the actual gameplay of Conner is amazing in this game. But, when you play, you get bored very fast. In fact, you'll get so frustrated by its repetitive "fetch quests" that you'll wish you just played another game.
Meanwhile, Conner and the other "Character" you play as are as boring as they come, completely failing in the narrative portion of AC3. Ezio would be ashamed.
Overall, if you like AC, then I would rent this. But, if you are just checking out the hype -don't. Go play AC2, and YouTube AC3. It will save you time and stress.

Yes, assassins creed is back. But, is it still the loveable series we all come to love? The answer to that question is yes, but not without a few mistakes along with it. To start things off I will explain the pros of Assassins Creed 3, such as the beautiful art design and the amount of task (or missions/side quests) to do in the game is incredible. You could be jumping to rooftop to rooftop, or doing something as simple as hunting, there is a ton to do in Assassins Creed 3 it is insane. Wile I am still at the topic, the hunting feels fresh and amazing (it also beings something new to the Assassins Creed 3 series.)
I also must say, the story missions can feel the same most of the time ( running or stalking someone, witch sometimes get boring.) But no need to fear, the amount of features in Assassins Creed 3 makes up for the story quest. Now to the actual story it self. You play as a man named Connor, a Native American Assassin. You start the story as young Connor and grow though out the game (You are mostly the adult Connor.) I don't want to spoil much about the game so i will leave it at that.
There is loveable characters, (although Connor is no where near as loveable as Ezio is but he will have to do) Great story, lots of stuff to do, Why not a perfect score you ask? Well that is because of so issues that I had with the game. First off, there is some annoying bugs in this game. Also you will run into some extremely annoying load times, and there is a awful ending that i do not wanna spoil. the only thing i didn't really go over is the multilayer, it hasn't really changed since the last Assassins Creed, but its still a solid multilayer experience.
Over all, Assassins Creed 3 is a Amazing game with good set pieces, and loveable characters. there is a ton to do with solid multilayer. On the other hand, the little problems like, load times and annoying bugs stop Assassins Creed 3 from being a perfect game.
