Uproxx - Good writing can make a game great. Bad writing, however, won’t necessarily sink a game, though, if the mechanics are good and the game itself is fun. There are many badly written games that are classics.
Which brings us to Assassin’s Creed III, a game which is not only hampered by bad writing, but by bad writing gone amok. This is a game where the story actively fights your attempts to play the game, that demands your attention when you couldn’t care less. Ubisoft is, for some baffling reason, absolutely convinced you have paid $60 to play a movie.
