Eurogamer- The story of the Assassin's Creed series has always been about history mixing with the present. It's also true of the many finely-tuned components in Assassin's Creed 3. They distil the best bits of the series so far, smile knowingly at those who've stuck by it from the beginning, and aptly serve as a fresh place to look and wonder.
The first thing I did when I played Assassin's Creed 3 was to find a tree and climb. It took me several minutes to find a path through the branches, swinging and pivoting around, but the reward from finally perching amidst its highest fronds felt truly well-earned. This feels like the game we've been waiting for.
