NowGamer: "Assassin's Creed 3 loses sight of the reason the series has been so popular. Ubisoft must really relearn the art of freedom for the inevitable sequel."
first comment >:) .......... 7 out 10 mmmmm it really hits the bad side of the game, but does the game still good after those minor complains?
Oh ... NowGamer ... the site where the review are better than the game developer ... /s
i think people just expected a 9.5/10 or even perfect scores. a 7/10 means its a must play only this gen where anything under a 9 is considered a bad game. I have played many 6/10 or 6.5/10 games that were more fun than some 9/10s don't look at the score enjoy it, if you like the ones before than this is a no brainier but i never liked AC games but always respected the high quality title so not gonna hate on it
Burn in hell nowgamer
This is the exact same criticism that Joystiq made. These criticisms are not isolated.
Hmmmm, contradiction detected: "it’s hard to really become absorbed in the landscape around you." "There’s very little to the cities of Assassin’s Creed 3, however. It’s still possible to hire additional Assassins to send off on missions or call into battle, a plethora of collectables to locate and even side missions to complete but it never feels like a part of the game. Not really." "The setting is a refreshing change, but it feels so peripheral." THEN: "Which is a shame, since Boston and New York are fantastic locations. Ubisoft has really gone to town (ba-dum-tish) on the new era, and these two cities are very well realised. There’s detail down the majority of alleyways, and the disparate voices – a bevy typical British dialects – help draw you into the era and the setting. Assassin’s Creed 3 is dense with of-the-time design, and it’s brilliant." I mean literally right after eachother. So is it peripheral and lacklustre or is it immersive and incredibly detailed?? I've played them all so far so I kind of have to play this one. I have my own bugbears with AC games but I still ultimately like them. This review is not a good one to go by, I'd ignore it. I'm not being a fanboy, but this is just a crappy review.
