Assassin's Creed 3 is a great game, but after you get all of the collectibles and complete the campaign, the singleplayer gets a little boring. The game has a few questionable game designs, like making maces and large axes similar, and having the knife be used completely differently than the previous games. As a fan of the previous games, I can't let these changes slide. The singleplayer also has a few glitches, both minor and major. All in all, I rate Assassin's Creed singleplayer a 8.
Now for multiplayer. Multiplayer has the traditional AC multiplayer experience, but with a few changes. Many of these changes I find very questionable, like changing the "Stun" button into the same button as the "Kill" button. This leads to many moments where I end up killing a nearby civilian instead of stunning my pursuer, losing points every time. Another frustration I have in multiplayer is the over-powered smoke bombs. Since I refuse to use the smoke bombs, I find myself at a major disadvantage. Every time I chase down a target, he or she always throws down a smoke bomb, stuns me, taunts me and runs away. Because of this I find myself more frustrated than enjoying my experience. I like the weapons selections and the customization options, but that cannot save the game if the gameplay is not enjoyable. All in all, I rate the multiplayer a 6.
