RipTen Review: Assassin’s Creed III (PS3)

Jonathon Dornbush writes: "When Assassin’s Creed debuted in 2007, I thought Ubisoft set the foundation for a strong series mired by bizarre and often dull design choices. The leap to Assassin’s Creed II, with the engaging Ezio and a refined, expanded world, delivered the experience I had hoped for on the first go. Yet the series stalled after the worthy if unnecessary Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, with Assassin’s Creed: Revelations shoehorning in strange gameplay mechanics. In some sense, Assassin’s Creed III has the monumental task of restoring the series to its glory days. What better place to revolutionize the series than in colonial America on the brink of independence? Though franchise-spanning issues still plague this entry, Assassin’s Creed III is a massive undertaking with enough intriguing parts to make the whole an exciting if patchwork experience." (Assassin's Creed III, PS3) 9/10

Definitely need to get through Revelations so I can play this. Hoping I like it better than I did Liberation.

I've played through all of the AC games, and this one is fast becoming my favourite. It's a slow burner and I wasn't initially blown away, but the story really kicks into high gear after a few hours and I'm absolutely loving the new setting. Quite possibly my game of the year.

Find this game to be very frustrating at times and my experience has been varied. The story is great, but extremely slow and I seem to be fighting more in-game bugs with their broken mechanics than Templars. Let's hope we see another patch soon, at least one that fixes the upside down carriage in Boston.

I'm sorry to hear that. I've heard many people have experienced bugs that make for a frustrating experience. For better or worse, my game time was relatively free of these issues, so though they are out there I felt I had to go based on how I played.
