Assassin's Creed III, a whole new frontier in disappointment | SMH Review

Dear Ubisoft, please stop forcing your development studios to slavishly adhere to your annual pre-Christmas release cycle.

The story is too old to be commented.

Guess someone didn't hear the news that they spent 2 + years developing the game. It certainly wasn't "rushed".

Maybe not "rushed" but it definetly needed more polish, I guess it was rushed then - doh

I agree with this review, Ive been playing it on the PS3 and i cant really say im totally impressed with it, i mean, its very twitchy, the way your character moves, or when you pan the camera around, its doesnt seem as smooth as older titles in the series

"I was appalled to see during one cutscene that while my character's lines were perfectly synchronised with his lips, the person he was talking to was just waggling his mouth randomly as he talked. As the game progressed I saw this everywhere, as well as a lot of characters that don't move their mouths at all" ive experienced all of that

I cant complain really, im renting it, screw Ubisoft

Well for how large the game is in scope, I'm surprised that, is pretty much the only problems you could find. Sure, there are a few glitches and bugs here and there, but nothing really game breaking at least.

^ Exactly, they complain as if your character is falling through the ground like in Prince of Persia.

The glitches are minor.

AC3 has a number of absolutely inexcusable bugs and slip-ups. I'm glad IGN gave it a 8.5, well said. Would easily have been a 9.5 with sufficient polish.

Am I the only one who's finding himself missing Brotherhood?

You must of bumped your head..... the game looks stuning. This game shocked my wife with just how preety it looked. The land and the environment looks and moves like it should. Game is a must have for AC fans. It does have a few bugs but i'm sure it will see another patch.

The game's graphics weren't much of an improvement over Assassin's Creed Revelations.

I still can't believe how people are making a massive deal out of the small bugs in this game.

Red Dead Redemption had similar issues and went on to become an amazing game. AC3 is still awesome, despite any small annoyances. I won't say it's the greatest AC since everyone likes to poke and prod the problems with it, rather than focus on how stunning the game looks and plays...

If it weren't for Halo 4 coming out, I would be playing it non-stop. Great game and as a true gamer (who owned all previous entries in the AC series) I am happy with my purchase.

Have to agree with the article. Huge disappointment for me. This is one of the worst paced games I have ever come across. Assassins Creed 2 was excellent because of the variety of missions given, but this games mission structure is so tedious and unsatisfying. I have no desire whatsoever to finish this rushed mess. The Frontier is very pretty though.

I dont know why you getting disagrees its the truth. The chase missions in AC3 is pretty bad just hold R1 and foward and thats it. I'm not even knocking it down for the ending its Connor. Ezio and Altair did dumb things in their youth but they learned their lesson. Connon on the other hand has that superman personality.

SCW19821845d ago

I think they are disagreeing about the Frontier being pretty.

Simon_Brezhnev1844d ago

Probably even the chase missions in AC3 are pure crap compared to other games. The only thing AC3 did good was some good Navel missions they the funniest part of the game. It's not even liking Ezio or Connor more. Just Connor truly believe he was a one man army. He really thought he was superman. The biggest disappoint is not even the ending its the Haytham fight. That fight was done pretty shitty.

I hope in the next spin off we get to play as a Templar. Haytham made me respect templars in this game.

Each year gamers get milked titles like CoD and Assassin's Creed
