assassins creed 3 was not what i expected it to be. the story mode of it was ok at first but the way it ended made no sense at all. and im not gonna spoil it for no one so dont think i am. the graphics were off on it for a new game. it seemed rushed through, the whole game had major glitches in it like passing through people and dogs and other animals freezing or skipping. over all it was ok but the commercials do it more justice than it really is u dnt even get to fight i a battle like they do u dont even get to kill king george. it was portrayed as u could but u cant. as for the glitches when u go to ur view point his feet are floating in mid air the kills are off like u will be stabbing and the guy will b on the ground like theres a real bad delay in it. and i belive the most aggervaiting part for me other than the bad story was the talking they would be talking and there mouths wouldnt even move at all or it would b delayed. i belive the biggest let down was if u changed ur suit during the story if there was a scene u would have on the regular suit i mean correct me if im wrong but that wasnt a problem in the last titles i believe. ur suit staied the same through out the whole story in scences and game play i just feel like alot of corners were cut in this game. and it could of been alot better. i would give ti a 5 out of 10 and i love the assassins creed games i have them all in a collection but im embarrassed to say this one is in it cause it was that much of a let down overall though the game was fun didnt like that u had to travel so far but thats part of all these games. if u can look past the all glitches though its not to bad just a let down on the story. i think they could of took it a whole lot further than they did

no where near as good as the all the other Assassin Creed games. Sure there are a few more features but at the cost of a buggy game. i would have been impressed with the combat system if it wasnt so buggy either. there were times that i had to wait to be hit or shot before i could move and other times i could move but not attack. i would expect these bugs and glitches if it was a game with as much data as Fallout New Vegas or Skyrim but that is not the case. even a few of the cut scenes messed up where the characters mouth wouldnt move, there weapon would be in there hand when it shouldnt be (i know it wasnt suppose to be there cause it was going through the pillar in the middle of the room), the character(s) would completely disappear, and other unacceptable bugs for a game like this. In the past i have bought ALL the Assassin Creed games, beat them, finished all the extra content, and was happy i owned them instead of rented them so i could play them again. THIS IS NOT THE CASE WITH THIS ONE. RENT THIS ONE THROUGH GAMEFLY, DO NOT BUY! at least, in my option anyways.

Assassin’s Creed 2 was fun. Brotherhood improved on it. You were given a likable hero, an engaging system to ‘level up’ your character, useful interaction with npcs (could I pay you all to start a riot..? ok!) and a city that just begged to be explored. You weren’t treated like an idiot. Here, you are given a stripped-down, soulless experience and a hero that has the personality of an automated recording.
There is a 6 hour tutorial. I experienced it and even I can’t believe it. Gone are the almost puzzleish Templar temples (which were excellent..) equippable gear.. a fast paced, enjoyable npc recruitment system. Oh and fun. That’s gone too. I poured out a 40 oz several times.
The other reviewers were spot on about how this ‘isn’t a true AC game’. They couldn’t be more right. Yes it’s also true that ‘5min have passed.. cutscene time.. facial animations may or may not work’ is true as well. I don’t have a problem with people’s mouths not moving in frequent cutscenes if I’m immersed in a game. This game had me checking out my backlog.
It’s as if the AC franchise merged with some new WRPG. It has a much heavier emphasis on ‘adventure’ and less stealth assassinating. It’s as disappointing as it sounds. It just straight up feels dumbed down in every way. It lacks anything that had that addictive factor making you want to come back. It’s just all uninteresting filler. I put in 12 hours before I couldn’t take it anymore.
If you had ever thought to yourself while playing AC that it needed more horse riding.. this may be the game for you. Yeehaw.
