Assassin's Creed III review | Select Start Media

"Assassin’s Creed III is a big game. Huge, some would say. From chasing pages of Ben Franklin’s Almanac across the rooftops of Boston to captaining a ship on the Eastern Seaboard, all the way to prancing through the treetops of the Frontier and collecting animal pelts, Assassin’s Creed III does all it can to offer the grandest experience the series has ever seen. Unfortunately, technical glitches, writing, and pacing have all suffered as a consequence of the game’s scope, dragging it from being a great game to a good game. It’s fun, ambitious, and there’s a hell of a lot to be had – that is, if you can drag yourself though the first few hours. It’s very pretty though." | Select Start Media (Assassin's Creed III, PS3) 7.4/10

Been at this game for the past week. I'm 28 hours in doing everything. It's a love hate relationship that's for sure, lol. Mostly the controls get me every time in AC games. Like when you have to chase someone down, or hide. He grabs everything in site along the way.

As for things to do, man this game is King. The main story missions are nothing compared to all the side quests/missions. There has to be like 500 things to do. The graphic's look awesome! I love the sailing ship missions. The water is some of the best looking I've seen in a game.

I miss the shops you buy in town over starting a village. All this hunting/skinning has me feeling like Red Dead Redemption/Skyrim.

There is a huge patch coming called the Thanksgiving patch. The game does get buggy that's for sure.

i see lots of people complaining about controls. Honestly I havent encountered anything to aggravating. There are geometry problems, but its an open world game where many items can be climbed so I just give it a pass.

To all the people complaining about the combat system.. whats wrong with it? Its easy ... counter stab.. counter stab. what is so difficult about this?

My problem is that it's too easy. What they could have done is maybe get rid of the big red triangles and make it so we have to work out when to hit counter, at least that would add some challenge to it.
