I have always thoroughly enjoyed the Assassin's Creed franchise and even when the game is not as interesting as prior ones, I still will play it entirely! AC3 was not perfect nor was it terrible in the least. You have plenty of stuff to do in the game besides the storyline, which if you are in no rush then try it out...quite enjoyable.
I have to say that I could see some of the bugs people talk about (i.e. mouths not moving, freezes during scenes, glitches in jumping and sliding), but I believe all games have them no matter what in some form. However, it didn't stop me from liking the awesome graphics, environment, and a very cool story plot. The characters twist and turn their tales in a very thrilling way. Plus, I liked how Connor was brash and very determined in his quest...some people took it as too brute.
I hope they keep up with the Desmond story, because it is interesting in its own way...however not sure what that entails after the ending of this game since I haven't played black flag yet! Looking forward to Black Flag and future AC games, always keep me entertained.
I really liked this game. It was really fun to play, I really liked the story it was great, playing a Native Assassin was a nice change from Ezio an Altair. The graphics were out of this world, the rain effects were great, the Naval gameplay was terrific, I also like it from turning night into day that was great.
