National Post reviews Assassin's Creed III

The National Post's Post Arcade team writes:

It’s no accident that Assassin’s Creed III is set during the American Revolution.

Ubisoft Entertainment SA’s quasi-historical action series has always been, at its root, about the struggle between freedom and repressive order, and this spectacular time in the development of North America was about nothing if not the fight for liberty. Colonists fought for freedom from the British crown, slaves fought for freedom from colonists, and native Americans fought for their land and the freedom to continue their way of life.

This plays well within the series’ fiction about a pair of ancient organizations in constant battle, one determined to bring stability to mankind at the cost of liberty, the other dedicated to ensuring human freedom, no matter the cost. (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 9/10
