So I was pretty psyched when I started up gamefly to play all the game I've missed lately. Assassins Creed III being one of them.
I started the game with a fury playing it quick and hard getting to roughly the halfway point in one day before I started getting tired of the control issues, (as with all assassins creed games) terribly vague mission connectivity, and a hard to swallow overall story arc. Don't get me wrong I was still having fun, but my pace was slowing.
The Conner story was great, getting to take part in some iconic american historical events was fantastic. However after about the halfway point I got tired of him asking "Where is [SPOILER]?" every 5 seconds.
Im huge into story in games, and the assassin's creed series has been pretty good. In this game however, I feel like the writers of the Desmond story line kinda shrugged and said "We have no idea where we want this story to go" and as a whole it drains on the player as they are left saying "why?"
The final chase scene was excruciating. Frustration on a whole different level. When it wasn't control issues, it was the fact that at no point does it indicate how you are supposed to get past each obstacle. You will need to take a trial and error approach to it. (be prepared to die/fail alot)
all in all its still assassin's creed which is good, but not the best in the series. I'd say try it, but if you are a completion-ist Id say "Good luck"
This game was absolutely amazing. I'm a big history buff and when I heard about a game about the Revolutionary War, and then found out it was an Assassin's Creed, I was over the moon. Amazing graphics and near seamless game play; but that's also where the problem lies. The only reason that this game isn't getting a 10/10 from me were all the annoying glitches: at one point, I was literally stuck INSIDE my horse and couldn't get out, and had to resort to start the session over. However, this may have only been my experience and I would still HIGHLY recommend to any fan of the Assassin's Creed franchise.
