First off, this game is a lot of fun. Same old kind of action as previous AC installments. The fighting sequences are great...especially with the new weapon: the rope darts. The historical aspect of the game is also interesting and you get to interact with a lot of familiar famous historical characters. The addition of being able to captain a ship and do naval missions is also a lot of fun. There are assassin recruits like in previous AC games and similar missions. The graphics are great and the game play itself is a lot of fun...BUT...
The story line is mediocre (both in and out of the animus) and never really gets you involved to the point that you care what is going on in the plot. I think the developers rushed the game a bit and it shows because the game is fairly glitchy. You can actually hunt and trap animals in this one, but that gets old pretty fast. After playing as Enzio in the previous AC games, I felt disconnected from this character, he just isn't as cool as Enzio lol. I hope there will be another installment of AC and the developers take their time with it. If this is how it ends, I'm disappointed.
I would recommend this game. It's a fun game to play, but it did not meet my expectations. I recommend renting from GF BEFORE buying. Great rental, but not worth the price if you buy it new.

I rented Assassins Creed 3 and was greatly shocked at how the game plays now i normally don't play adventure games or get into them like that but this one caught my eye....The only complaint i do have is that the story mode could/should add more into the game....After defeating the story mode you are basically roaming towns doing random missions ....Other than that i like the game....
I didnt realize you had to travel everywhere and watch cutscenes every three steps. The freerunning is really touchy too. Pretty weak overall. Not very entertaining, but I havent played any other games in the series so who knows. Maybe I'm missing something.
