Mirror- Assassin's Creed III Review

Mirror - Here’s a double-edged wrist-blade for Assassin’s Creed fans to ponder.

After the so-so sequels to the series’ second instalment proper, this fifth title is a barnstorming tour de force.

However, it’s also an open world reboot even further removed from the series’ original murderous purity.

Sure you’ll still spend a significant proportion of the game sinking steel into unsuspecting enemies and hiding in hay bales afterwards, but it often feels as though the developers have placed the emphasis here on killing time instead.

In fact, the game ACIII continually brings to mind is Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption.

This is partly due to its 18th century North American setting, but mainly because of the frontier spirit it wears like a raccoon skin hat. (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5/5
