Top critical review
A boring, uninteresting mess of a game.
on November 27, 2012
Assassins Creed 3 has been hyped as the best of the series, but it really is quite far from it. I have put about 6 hours into it thus far and have yet to do anything related to what the game title suggests.
The controls are buggy, the missions are boring and unmerciful at points (For example, walking by a guard seems to be a 50/50 toss up as to whether or not he will attack you or not - for no rhyme or reason) and, most importantly, it's just flat out boring. The game spoon feeds you each aspect of it, usually in intervals of 30 minutes to an hour per "element", and occasionally throws in a bit of story to remind you that is, in fact, going somewhere. I am now roughly 6 hours in and I have yet to see all of it's features, and have yet to experience the open endedness every other AC title has given the player.
Im giving this game two stars because while the fun factor is missing entirely, it does look damn good. Wading through knee deep snow is visually impressive and realistic, and the environments are incredibly detailed. However, with such a boring story, boring missions, and terrible gameplay, there's really no reason to even bother with AC3. There are far superior games you can spend your money on.
