"Assassin’s Creed is a series I’ve always wanted to love. For one reason or another though, there was always one point in each title where I hit the proverbial brick wall and no longer cared about the game. This is not to say that any of the previous titles where bad, they just couldn’t hold my ever-fleeting attention span. Or, as I began saying, “They tricked me.” It became something of a joke in my household; every new Assassin’s Creed title would be exciting at first, but ultimately I would feel “tricked” by it. So here we are with Assassin’s Creed III. Does it “trick” me, or does it do something else entirely?"
