From Strategyinformer.com: "Assassin's Creed 3's explosive trailers do the game little justice. This is not a title of endless set pieces and tireless action. It includes many spectacular moments, but a certain type of thoughtfulness underlines the series for the first time. Ubisoft has produced a sequel that values intricacy as much as sword fights and battles at sea. Those events may take the headlines, but AC3's ability to do things carefully is the real triumph. Desmond's adventure has matured, and it'll force your style of play to do so too.".
