In defense of Assassin’s Creed III ahead of its remaster

"Assassin’s Creed III has a reputation as one of the franchise’s weaker installments. But Assassin’s Creed III connected with me, and this upcoming remaster has compelled me to defend the 2012 open-world game." - Mike Minotti

it had the bugs but still the best combat and platforming(better than black flag).. it was violent and bloodied

"better than black flag" lol NO!

I agree.

AC3 had the best combat in any Assassin's Creed to date. It was also the last game where free running actually felt meaningful. The animation blending has been getting noticeably worse since Revelations, but in AC3 we at least had the trade off of being able to freely traverse trees as well.

I get why people dislike it, but in a lot of ways it was the last game to move the franchise forward in any meaningful way.

I like where they are currently going with Origins and Odyssey, but it just isn't the same game anymore. Nothing inherently wrong with that though.

I think Ubi had good intentions with this one, but it was too ambitious for it's own good. Some of those side activities, like running a navy, were just pointless.

I liked the AC3, and I loved Connor and his father. The dialogue was some of the best and wittiest. Plus it made me nostalgic for 17th century America in a way I never thought possible given the living conditions of the time. Plus it was one of the last releases before Ubisoft started becoming more political with their games.

I enjoyed AC3 as well. Living in Australia & fascinated by American history, it offered a small glimpse of what it would have been like living in Colonial America. (As it’s not taught extensively in our schools)
Plus as someone who’s played & finished every AC game to date. That scenario surrounding the “How do you like them apples?” Achievement is brilliant.

It’s not taught in American schools either. That’s the problem with younger Americans.

3 wasn't the greatest AC game, but I don't think it's as bad as people made it out to be. I recall it got a lot of flack for being boring, but the first one is the worst offender IMO.

3 is actually one of my favorite in the series.Glad to see the remaster
