"Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series is so staggeringly big. It’s gone from being the quiet hit that came from experimenting with Prince of Persia, to the French publisher’s biggest title – completely overshadowing its lucrative Tom Clancy franchise and the once successful Prince of Persia series. This of course means that for Assassin’s Creed III Ubisoft have made quite the investment, in not just time but also money. To combat their expenditure they’ve thrown the marketing machine into full gear and it’s easy to see that this is the most anticipated in the series thus far. Thanks to all the hype being flung around the internet though videos, previews and numerous screenshots – something we are as guilty of as anybody else on the internet – expectations for Connors adventures in the frontier were high. Perhaps just a little bit too high."
