Assassin's Creed III Review | D+PAD Magazine

D+PAD Writes:

Assassin’s Creed 3 is a game that, if games were reviewed solely on their value for money, would be perfect. It is one of the largest games made recently and that scale is not a result of vast distances to cover slowly a la Skyrim or ultimately unrewarding clumps of activity as plagued Just Cause 2 but simply an unrivalled density of things to do. Any session of the game will result in the player finding huge numbers of distractions which will significantly slow their progress through the already large and rewarding campaign. Ultimately, this scale becomes daunting; with so much choice of activities to perform, deciding which will be the most fruitful in any given play session becomes difficult – and indeed, given that so much of the game’s most interesting content is hidden behind the side-missions over the main storyline, a player may become so overwhelmed by the number of tasks they lose interest before seeing all of the good parts. (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 4.5/5
