Assassin’s Creed 3 Review - Duuro Magazine

Duuro says: "ssassin's Creed 3 is the true sequel we have all been waiting for. The story is fantastic, the gameplay and the new additions are better than ever. The naval missions are the coolest thing ever. Visually it's a treat for your eyes. Assassin's Creed 3 is the best Assassin's Creed game to date!" (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9.4/10

9.4 is a little generous in my opinion, the story wasn't that good (especially the ending), many missions were boring passing you from stranger to stranger to do menial tasks, Connor wasn't a particularly interesting character. The environments were brilliant though, the city felt alive and the wilderness was cool to explore and hunt, and of course the naval combat was awesome.

I would say that AC:2 is the best game in the series.

This is on point with what I would have said myself.

Everyone has their opinions, can't argue with that. But the story was pretty epic and since they had a real life story to follow, I was amazed how they managed to squeeze those special Assassin's Creed moments and twists. Connor is not Ezio and I understand why people didn't like him. But if you truly followed the story, you would understand why Connor is how he is, what he experienced as a kid and teen, turned him into the Assassin. Ezio lived live like a little prince, that's why he had that kind of personality, but Connor didn't have any of those.

You have a fair point about why Connor is the way he is, i guess he was doomed from the moment Ubisoft wrote him because of his gloomy backstory and they knew he wouldn't be as loved as Ezio. I did enjoy SOME parts of the story it just felt a little disconnected at times and the ending was lackluster in my opinion.

@Lucas_Japonicus The other ending of AC3, the video contained a very powerful message about humanity and the ending was very suprising! I cannot wait to see how they plan to continue the story on Black Flag

Would you PM me about that other ending and jog my memory please? Thanks.

I just started this game thanks to PS Plus and initially I was far more impressed than I thought I would be. I'm still so early on that I'm playing as Kenway but already I had to rage quit due to the annoying controls. I'm supposed to tell my follower to hide or follow me using the circle button, which means when I'm balancing on a wall in full view of a patrol of guards and want to drop down I instead keep shouting 'follow' 'stay' 'follow' 'wait here' and for some reason when I'm standing on solid ground mashing circle like crazy the game acts like its never even heard of a circle button. I've never seen such insane mapping of controls.

Play it all the way through, that is all I am going to say! It is super fricking amazing!

I will definitely jump back into it. Like I said it was much better than I expected up to that point. I was suffering severe franchise fatigue by the time Revelations came out so I didn't buy that and I didn't trust 3 to be much of a step forward so I didn't bother buying. It was just upsetting to go so quickly from, 'wow this is pretty good I don't know why this game got such a bad rap' to wanting to throw my controller across the room due to the insane mapping of many wildly different actions to the same button and just odd choices like shooting with Triangle.

Isn't this like a little late?
Lukas_Japonicus  +   548d ago
Never too late to play and a review a game.
ZBlacktt  +   548d ago
Many are just now playing it as it's now free on PS Plus.

As was my point kraideral.
