"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
I thought the plot of this game was great. Never understood the hate.
loved the hell out of that game
I actually enjoyed 3 due to the awesome setting. It's easily among the best settings in the series, especially going from all the Italian/Euro based games. 17th century America was extremely well rendered. Boston, NY, the frontier. It was a joy to see, especially in the snow. The sights and sounds were excellent and the cities oozed with atmosphere. The side activities were tediously redundant and some of the great ideas weren't executed well, but for all the flack AC3 gets, it also deserves praise for what it does well. Incredible setting, improvements in traversal and design, beautiful visuals, interesting historical figures, and naval combat. AC3 started the excellent tradition of great naval gameplay/combat. Black Flag and Skull and Bones need to thank AC3.
I really enjoyed 3 even when most people hated it.
I love and hate this game at the same time. I love the characters and story, improvements in movement and new gameplay options they added (aside from naval combat). But i hate it because of the 2 100% sync requirements - shoot 3 weak points on the ships (mission "The Giant and the Storm") and kill 2 captains undetected (mission "Conflict Looms"). This 2 missions showed me how undercooked some of the mechanics were, when ship can just blow up for no reason, when storm can destroy it before you can attempt the "weak spot" kill, when enemy ships can destroy each other, when enemies can see you through walls, under water, behind the cover, when they can "feel" someone's death on the other side of the ship and so on. Game had great ideas, with your little town, slowly growing, but it had a lot of bugs and issues, when you can get locked out of certain achievements/trophies (i care about them) and you have to restart the game completely. And i, personally, didn't enjoy the multiplayer, at all. Interesting idea on paper, but weak execution.
AC3 is my personal favorite of the series I loved every bit of it honestly.
Let hope they don't remaster the bugs and glitches as well.
My favourite in the series glad to see a remaster.
Connor has nothing on Ezio I prefer 2 and Blackflag if Ubisoft puts out a physical copy and makes the cheap enough I might snag it
Spent 20 hours on this game. So fun! Never even assassinated target # 2. Just the first target plus another 10 hours doing all liberation missions in Boston. Totally gunna pick up the remaster and AC: Liberation. Liberation on the vita was fun in the city- but so lame in the marshlands getting only 12 fps.
I'm not trying to be edgy or anything, but was there demand for this? Like, did the fans ask for this? Because I feel like there's been a drive for an AC1 master far more than there has been for a remaster of 3.
Yes, the people remember how epic and ambitious Assassin's Creed 3 was.
Still my favourite AC
This game changed my mind about Templars being the pure and simple villains. This was the point in assassins creed series where the typical black and white scenerio finally turned grey. I loved that. Easily best plot in the series. Plus that tomahawk gameplay? Absolutely brutal. Loved that too.
Man... I liked it but I’m not as Ass Creed fan so maybe that’s why? I will say that Black Flag was my favorite and I stopped playing them after Unity.
lame character, we went from ezio to boring conner ,Lame revenge story , AC3 was the beginning of the decline for the series until origins fixed things again , black flag was the best pirate game at time of release but it was a bad assassins creed game. if we dont take into consideration all the above , after ac origins combat change how can any one go back to the old combat way of press this button wait and then counter is beyond me
I personally liked it. It introduced Naval combat to the gane and had various other side activities i was interested in. It also established the wider feild of an open world with in the franchise. I even admired the history and the villains in the game, i just didn't go much on the protagonist. But overall i loved it.
