The Worst Game I've Ever Played: Assassin's Creed III

It's painful to watch your favorite franchise dig itself into a hole. Or in Assassin's Creed's case, take a leap of faith and miss the pile of hay. The fifth major installment of the series served as a self-destruct button that left both fans and history buffs underwhelmed. Assassin's Creed III broke my heart because I saw an incredible story conclude with a half-assed ending that didn't make any sense and left enough plot holes to make an even more gimmicky upcoming sequel, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. (Assassin's Creed III, Xbox 360)

Apparently someone has never played Aliens: CM or Duke Nukem: Forever.

Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

Mass Effect was a good game. Up until the last 15 minutes.

Most dissapointing*
linkenski  +   827d ago
Virus201: Mass Effect 3 was such a let down throughout most of it compared to Mass Effect 2. I don't care for set piece moments. They are distracting the viewers from any real depth or substance. The introduction to the game is terrible, the autodialogue ruined my experience and everything that had to do with Cerberus was very poorly written.
Most dissapointing sequel i ever played.

I don't see how that makes ME3 a bad game but to each its own ME3 was good not excellent but it wasn't bad at all.

"Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing"

Dear God... It should be illegal to sell people such an atrocity...

I would've gone with Aliens: CM
MikeyDucati1  +   827d ago
Aliens: CM wasn't that bad of a game. I repeat, Aliens: CM wasn't that bad. I enjoyed it. Not saying that to be the odd man out either. It was better than Aliens Vs. Predator, I tell you that.

He should state it this way..."The worst AAA popular franchise game I've ever played"
KillrateOmega  +   827d ago
This.

I mean If AC3 was the worst game he's ever played period, then I can't help but question how many games he has played or when he got into gaming.
kayoss  +   827d ago
I guess he never tried playing duck duck goose. Come back and talk after he played twister... With 8 guys.....shudder.

I played ET and the 2600 version of Pac Man. No matter how bad AC3 is, I'm sure it's probably better than either of those games.
Upstate8987  +   827d ago
i was actually discussing this topic with someone else, and they hands down said ET was the worst.
JsonHenry  +   827d ago
I remember ET as a kid. It was BAD.
T2  +   827d ago
Pit fighter on nes was terrible ... Spy hunter I swear was one of those repeating games with no end...
nutcrackr  +   827d ago
AC3 was quite ordinary yes, but must not have played many games if it's the worst.
Evil_Ryu  +   827d ago
Wow cant believe somebody has the same hatred for this game as me...i will never buy another assassin creed game after 3 as it was my worst game of all time

Unfortunately not lol
spartanlemur  +   827d ago
I had such high expectations when I bought that as a kid....ruined when I placed it in the disc tray and turned the machine on...and the wretched thing didn't even grow a beanstalk when I buried it outside.
Goro  +   827d ago
Ubisoft need to give AC a break for a few years, then it will be more appreciated when it returns...plus they need to bring back some Prince of Persia
maxgamehard  +   827d ago
They should make a sequel to Prince of Persia 2008. I loved that game.
psyxon  +   827d ago
kid must not play a lot of games.

Vampire Rain anyone?

RAFFwaff  +   827d ago
utter drivel article. although ac3 failed to live up to its huge ambition, it is still an excellent game taken on its own merits, though Ezio is still the posterboy of the franchse for me. its no where NEAR the worst game ever, but u got your reaction and hits from gamers, so well done. now go take your pills and lie down son...
mrbearbear  +   827d ago
two worlds?
MysticStrummer  +   827d ago
I don't know about the original but I bought Two Worlds 2 for like $7 and returned it the next day. Usually when I buy a cheap game like that I can overlook a lot of faults. That game was horrible.

I'm not a fan of AC myself, but I think the writer needs to play more games if AC3 is the worst ever.

hahaha i remember paying £50 for that garbage. does anyone remember B.O.B by ea (a platformer starring an orange robot) for the snes, and Battletoads for snes which was almost unplayable haha.
amaguli  +   827d ago
I wish I could say Assassin's Creed III was the worst game I have ever played, but I would be lying. Looking at you Big Rigs and Superman 64.

After watching the trailers of Dragon Age I was expecting epic dragon fights. All I got was little lizards and horrible gameplay.
jameson12345  +   827d ago
Assassin's Creed 3 is the worst game you have ever played.......really? Have you only played like two games or something? Assassin's Creed 3 is not perfect, but it is in no way a worse game then a game like Aliens Colonial Marines, the most infuriatingly disappointing game I have ever played. It is literally a broken game. Even to the point that if it was played on the Ultra High End PC it originally was showed on, it still would be a bad game. AC3 is just glitchy, not very stealthy, and a bit samey as the previous games.
Shuyin  +   827d ago
AC3 really was a step down from AC2. I was very disappointed and regreted my purchase.
OMNlPOTENT  +   827d ago
How is AC3 even a bad game? It had a giant, beautiful world; great freerunning mechanics; and a lot of new tools to use. It didn't nail the storyline part right at all and I did feel that the main storyline lacked the Assassin's Creed feel. It's not a great game but tbh I thought it was less of a bore than Revelations.

Your opinion piece may have been the worst one i have read today this game wasn't really bad it was good not the best out the series
