When I got the game in November 1'st, I was so excited to play the game. The campaign was amazing. The graphics were beautiful. Fighting redcoats in Boston and N.Y.C was addicting. The only problem I have had was the excessive amount of glitches.
During my first 2 hours in the game, I have suffered numerous amount of glitches such as getting glitched in buildings, multiple framerate issues, and glitched deaths. Don't get me wrong, great game and all, but I've never seen this much glitches in a game since Grand theft auto IV.
The fighting mechanics were both a blessing and a curse. At first, you could be raiding a fort killing redcoats or patriots in dozens, but end up getting killed by a firing squad. Although the combat can be seriously overpowered, enemy forces can counter you (Which is both good and bad).
The numerous weapon choice were insane. Even if you get bored assassinating enemies with a tomahawk, you can use some really amazing weapons such as the classic hidden blade, rope darts and my favorite weapon, the good ol flintlock pistol.
I am not a major Assassins creed series fan, but I had almost no common knowledge of the campaign at all. At first, you basically start off playing Connors father doing some dirty work for Templars. And than you will end up being Desmond towering through the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Although, Connors side of the story is the best part of it all. But, it will take a certain amount of time to just get to that part of the campaign (about 5 hours at the most)
Assassins Creed III will be one of the games I could be playing for hours to come. But, the creators of the game could have done much better with the game. Without the numerous glitches, the game could get a easy 9.5. I think it would be worth buying if you can withstand the glitches.
