Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered Review - Anything but Revolutionary [Wccftech]

The Assassin's Creed 3 Remaster improved the graphics and very little else. Without anything done to address its faults, age makes it even more unpalatable.

Did the reviewer mistake the difference between a remaster (graphical updates) and a remake (changing gameplay mechanics)? Let alone this is likely done solely to get all AC games on x86 hardware on all platforms (specifically Playstation) and not to make it a 'better game'.

It's been an outdated game for years, and wasn't exactly highly regarded by fans in the first place. If all they're willing to do is slightly the improve visuals, what's the point? The fact that it's a remaster doesn't excuse that it's pointless.

A remake doesn't necessarily have to change gameplay mechanics, Shadow of the Colossus being a good example. A remaster doesn't have to be limited to visual improvements, GTAV being a good case for that.

To get it on x86 and ensure backwards compatibility through next generation.

True, though SotC did greatly improve/change controls of the game as an option, which does greatly affect gameplay.

But, most notable is that a remaster does none of those things, it's only graphical updates and possibly performance.

No more a cashgrab than any other remaster. If you didn't like it when it first came out or don't like the series in general just ignore it. We're not all going to like the same things.

But I really liked AC3. It was my favorite AC game up to that point. I'm not sure I'll get the remaster, but if I do decide to play the game again I'm glad there's an improved version to enjoy.

No, other remasters go all out. It's worth the money. Not this one though. Especially after the more recent amazing open world AC games. It makes older AC games harder to go back to.

Thats what all remastered are.

This has been happening with movies since forever.

chris2351908d ago

i had to laugh out loud so hard when i saw this pop up in the psn store. low effort cashgrab. the sad thing is, some people will buy this.

nyctophilia131908d ago

Not to mention one of the worst AC's.

Guess I'm one of those sad people, sad, proud, and enjoying every second of my favorite AC game again.

No ragrets, not even a single letter.

Al_Simmons1908d ago

Same. Loved this game. A REMASTER would've been nice but I'm ok with an update to grab the platinum

Al_Simmons1908d ago

Yes some of us will. Why? because 10 million plus loved the game. Personally I never was able to platinum it because I didn't want to go through the multiplayer trophies.This may not be the best subjectively for some people. But, by far ac3 had the best gameplay in the series.

Low effort how?

It does what a remaster is supposed to.

So this game still sucks? By far the worst of the series.

2pacalypsenow1907d ago

You expect they change the entire game for a remaster?

Doomster19711908d ago

Why is this one always considered the worst AC? I tried it years ago. I didn't like it, but I didn't really enjoy any of them before origins (I've always felt the controls awkward as hell). This one didn't seem any different to any of the earlier ones to me.

optimus1908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )

for me, this is the game i held out for after assassin's 2 and didn't bother with the spinoffs that came after thinking it was just simply bigger dlc's of assassin's 2...(which i enjoyed a lot).
not to mention that 3 took place in my hometown and was curious to see how well they recreated it. nevertheless, it wasn't enough to save it as the story was mediocre as well as the new main hero. they emphasised sailing which was boring, the story dragged, it was just dull... needless to say i have yet to finish the game. so when people say it's the worse, i tend to believe it.

Gamehard1908d ago

Man, sorry to hear you didn't play brotherhood. It's arguably the best in the series. It was my personal favorite of that era.

But yeah, AC3 did a few cool things, but it did alot more lackluster and boring things that really held it back.

william_cade1908d ago

Origins is the first one I have tried. Still haven't finished it.

Razmiran1908d ago

Because its cool to hate id say
Its not that good. But taking in account unity, revelations and chronicles exist id say its not that bad

Al_Simmons1908d ago

ac3 has the best gameplay mechanics

Razmiran1907d ago

Look, I dont know if best. But it had a lot of cool and intresting things.
