Meristation-First Review for AC3 8.5/10

Meristation Review for Assassin's Creed 3:


Following lessons by masters Altair and Ezio, Connor brings key new features to the Assassin's Creed series. Naval battles and leafy wilderness areas full of animals and tall trees fit nicely with the well-built historical setting of this American Revolutionary War. Wide and spectacular, only marred by inexcusable bugs, reduced draw distances, a slow-paced beginning and several AI flaws.

Reduced draw distances? That's kind of disappointing... Wonder if that might be better on the PC version? I dunno, I have all the others on console though.

Might be because of the landscape or the level of detail compared to the other games. I dont read spanish tho lol.. Guess we will see in 2 days!

Snookies121972d ago (Edited 1972d ago )

Yeah, I do realize this game looks much better and there is a LOT going on in it. Still, one of the main things I loved about the AC games, was getting up on the tallest tower and overlooking the entire landscape.

i really hoped on the + side that the ending provided closure, cant really escape the feeling that they're gonna pull a mass effect 3 on this one

@snookies. I am sure it will be fine. When you are up high you do not have all the rendering that goes on at ground level, i.e., people walking and stuff.

Considering meritstation gave
AC a 7.5
AC2 an 8 (best in the series, imo)
ACB an 8.5
ACR an 8

and now AC3 an 8.5, the game is great.

They are usually around the mid to lower end in the reviews

I have it, and I love it... I actually liked the slow pace of the beginning

The game is great so far

YodaCracker1972d ago

Thanks Nimblest-Assassin, that really puts things into perspective.

MikeMyers1971d ago

Nimblest-Assassin, thanks for putting it all in perspective. The games looks very good.

Crazyglues1971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

@ Nimblest-Assassin

Oh thanks, for putting things into perspective.

Because before that I was starting to think 8.5 might be a little low for what looks like it's going to be an epic game.

So now thanks to your detail explanation I see that in-fact they have given it one of the highest ratings for any of the AC Series...

so consider me back super excited.. Can't wait to get this...

I wish ratings would include what a site gave previous games, just so gamers can judge how they tend to score..

(Awesome Job Nimblest-Assassin..)

I never trust early reviews from unknown sites....
We'll see soon

ResidentEvil921972d ago

That site is not "unknown"

It is a big site in Spain.

LOGICWINS1972d ago

Unknown? Meristation has been doing reviews for years.

mt1972d ago

so It has to be 10 so you could trust the review ?

TheFinalEpisode1972d ago

@ResidentEvil92 & LOGIC
Unknown to me, never heard from it before and I'm not from spain
When did I say that?
A 10 from a site I don't know would mean nothing to me, however this lower scorce actually has me worried because early reviews are usually high...
I don't how you came to that conclusion at all

LOGICWINS1972d ago

"A 10 from a site I don't know would mean nothing to me, however this lower scorce actually has me worried because early reviews are usually high..."

You don't consider an 8.5 a high score? Yeah..I give up.


Tainted Gene1972d ago (Edited 1972d ago )

let me hop on the bandwagon.....

"cmon, Meristation is a well know game site thats been around for years. How do u not know that?!?! Typical N4G scrub"

So how was that? Am I cool know?
