Assassin's Creed 3 PC Review | AtomicGamer

AtomicGamer writes:

"I hate to admit that as a fan of big, epic games, I've really been struggling with the Assassin's Creed series over the years. This franchise is so ambitious, so complex, so overwrought that the games often feel like they're barely being held together, that from a gameplay and narrative (and not technical) perspective, they could crumble under their own weight at any time. I feel nervous and uneasy playing these games, and the developers' move towards metaphysics and pseudo-scientific babble as an overarching plot have not really endeared me to the series, mostly because there already seems to be plenty going on without all that stuff. I know how silly that sounds; how could there be too much in a game for its own good? But I've been of the opinion for a few years now that Assassin's Creed would be better served with a dialed-back plot and tighter focus on missions and city exploration rather than so many viewpoints and narratives crossing back and forth." (Assassin's Creed III, PC) 9/10
