Review: Assassin's Creed III []

The largest issue with Assassin’s Creed III is just how long everything takes to get going. The game is broken into twelve “sequences” and six of them are spent with a great deal of time in tutorials. It causes the game to take hours upon hours to actually do anything interesting. When it finally gets going, it’s often times well worth it. However, this opening bogs the entire experience down heavily.

Don't click the link, they're obviously looking for hits..

MattyG2205d ago

It is an incredible game, but the Desmond bits are a little underwhelming. The historical aspect is FANTASTIC though.

ginsunuva2205d ago

Yes, indeed, Journey is the best 2012 game.

There's nothing bad about this game. I don't know what the hell this review is all about, but this game is fantastic. Buy it.

You know, its a really good game and I am enjoying it... But on the other hand I agree on score. Wierd? Maybe, but in my honest opinions this game should have never been released in this state. It needs serious polish. Like year or so . There are so many bugs there, I have to restart missions few times already (I am currently in Sequence 10) thanks to great work in Q/A department. I am playing on X360 version, don't know if PS3 version is any better (I hope it is).

My advice: Don't wait for price cut, wait for patch...

I have enjoyed games that I would have given a score of 4/10. Sometimes, a game is fun, but you can see areas where it comes up short, or areas that lack polish.

That said, I am not accusing Assassin's Creed 3 of this, since I have not yet played it. I'm just saying this has happened to me before, where I'd have to give a game a low-ish numerical score, even though I enjoyed my time with it.

M1chl2205d ago

I totally agree, I have been in same situation many times. But thats not how the scoring system works in general, so I am glad to see, that I am not alone with this scoring system, where you can enjoy games, that you personally rated pretty badly.

grailly2205d ago

it's not a 5/10 bad, but I can't say I'm having lots of fun with it... it involves a lot of (free)running. I guess it depends on if you are having fun while (free)running you'll like the game, otherwise wait for a price drop. Don't get me wrong, I think the tree climbing is fun and fresh and I enjoy doing just that. It's just that the building freerunning isn't as fun anymore and running in the streets can feel like a mess.

KatanaSquirrel2205d ago

As the author of this review, I want to make something clear. By our standard, 5 out of 10 is NOT bad. We use a full 1 through 10 scale, with 5 being average. There are some great things AC3, but a lot of things bog the experience down from what it should be.

BlaqMagiq242205d ago

Get it. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

Nimblest-Assassin2205d ago

Its incredible, just eclipsed Borderlands 2 as the best game of the year for me

Also remember, there is always that one site

whoever wrote this bullshit are not a gamer for me wtf man
this game is so amazing i mean how da fuck can u give such a game a 5 u better close ur site cuz u have really no idea wut good games are
damn it man

bubblebeam2205d ago

Flag the site down. Happens to all the big games.
Borderlands 2, AC3, Uncharted 3 and most recently Halo 4.

If you don't like a game, it doesn't mean it is very buggy and messy (which a 5/10 would indicate).

ELinktricTears2205d ago

This score is definitely in the minority

A2X_2205d ago

They just want attention, don't even bother clicking on the link. I'm 20 hours in the game and still at 30% completion. This is the Assassin's Creed I've always wanted. Flawless animations (though they should update the horse animations, still a bit clunky), beautiful graphics despite the few bugs (nothing gamebreaking like some people make it sound). Definitely worth a 9 for me.

DivineAssault 2205d ago

Cant trust reviewers anymore.. This is getting inconsistant reviews as well as Hello 4 on this site.. Meta critic has em both at great numbers.. Buy the game if u like the series/genre.. if not, dont.. Or just rent it first..

BrianC62342205d ago

I just ignore all reviews now. They aren't worth anything. Some games I know I want before they're out. Others I'm not sure so I wait and see what gamers say. If most reviews say the same thing then I trust them to be right. I don't pay any attention to reviews like this one.
