Totally forgettable

Amazing visuals and fighting animations but..this is easily the slowest of the AC storylines. So much so that I couldn't make it past Sequence 4. Too many cut scenes, too much loading time and too many redundant mission quests. AC2 is still the clear champion of the series. They should have stopped there.

Redundancy in the 18th Century

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.

4 out of 10.

Final Chapter Finally Got Most Right

I've been a fairweather fan since the beginning. I loved AC1 when it first came out. I played it top to bottom 3 times. Having loved the first one so much I was thuroughly disappointed that the next few installments never really roped me in like the 1st one. I never finished #2 & I never touched the next 2. I'm not finished with the 3rd one yet but its finally roped me the way the 1st one did. I love the time in history. I love the open world layout. I even enjoy the combat system. I've read about everyone raving about the graphics but I don't find them all that much improved. Don't get me wrong, the game is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! I just don't see a huge improvement like all the reviews are saying. This is BY FAR the best installment of the series. If you couldn't get into AC before but wanted to, then this is definitely the game for you. I've even already ordered all the others in the series to just watch this story unfold from beginning to end, purely because of this one.

PROS:
Great time in history for the setting.
Great story, keeps you hooked in.
Improved combat & motion
Graphics are good.

CONS:
UPlay Passport (Code Needed For Online Multiplayer, $9.99)
