maybe i'm the only one who had this problem but just in case...... after receiving the game there were problems. it would freeze the screen and force me to have to reset. originally i thought it was my system,but i played several of my other games just fine for hours. so i told gamefly about my problem and they immediately shipped another copy without hesitation. This by the way was outstanding of them as they didn't even wait for me to send my copy back. But it unfortunately did not solve the issue and i was forced to send the game back again and await the arrival of my next game. I am very disappointed in the game itself for this reason. And the only reason i gave it a 3 instead of a 0 is because of gamefly's remarkable response to my problem and the limited playability that i did have plus some very amazing cutscenes. i wish i could have played more.
ACIII is not only my favorite AC game released, but is easily one of the best games I have ever played. From the historically accurate details to the improved battle system and the most in-depth, meaningful story so far, I urge everyone to give this game a shot. I had some of my good friends try the game (some who had never played any of the AC games) and even from a few hours of gameplay, loved it so much that they had to get it themselves. Truly remarakble game making.
game looks great.... I can't deny that all of the ac games look amazing. The scenery and cityscapes are incredible and the living city elements are always great. That being said I feel like many of the things I hated from other games came back in different ways. I really have no interest in driving a boat or developing my homestead or joining clubs... I honestly play the game to get to the story which is so convoluted at this point that I don't even know what is going on anymore. It's worth a rent if for nothing more than how good it looks but beyond that I felt myself more annoyed than pleased. I just wanted to get the game over with.
