Assassin's Creed III -- The Tyranny of King Washington
23 April 2013
Conclusion: The Tyranny of King Washington is made to the highest standards, but also overpriced for what it is. Though the new powers refresh and reshape Assassin’s Creed III’s gameplay, most of the locations and missions here are overly reminiscent of what we’ve seen time and time again in the main campaign, and only towards the end does the story really come into its own. It would be a much easier recommendation at half the price.
Pros: New powers refresh the gameplay, High production values, Story eventually pays off
Cons: Overpriced, Doesn't do enough with the setting
Excerpt: Assassin’s Creed III is the final episode in Desmond Mile’s trilogy of Assassin’s Creed games. Following a bartender who unwillingly finds out he is an Assassin who is due to save the world, Assassin’s Creed III seeks to close the story arc laid out in the previous four games and considering just how much has happened at this point, it’s a little bit disappointing to see no catch up story told for those who might not have played the game previously.
Excerpt: In case the Roman numeral in the title didn’t already make it obvious, Assassin’s Creed III probably shouldn’t serve as your introduction to the ongoing story that is told within the Assassin’s Creed franchise. That could prove to be a problem for some folks because the game is the first installment in the long-running series to arrive on a Nintendo console.
Conclusion: Connor may not be the most likable protagonist, but the story is riveting enough to make up for him. The gameplay has frustrating moments, but the fighting is entertaining enough to keep you brutalizing enemies for hours, and there are plenty of side-missions and extras in this game to keep you around for a long time. When it comes right down to it, Assassin’s Creed III is a good game. It makes changes, but that’s what a series should be doing.
Summary: Assassin's Creed III pushes the foundations of the series forward in many new directions, and while a degree of these go sideways the title still manages to pull off one of the most impressive and immersive game worlds we've seen in some time. Smart GamePad support is a great enhancement over its siblings and sets the standard for this genre on Wii U, and while an anaemic online community silently kills the multiplayer component, the campaign is still engrossing for solo...
Conclusion: Ho scaricato i due episodi di La Tirannia di Re Washington da Xbox Live grazie a due codici review forniti da Ubisoft Italia, terminando entrambi in poco più di 5 ore ottenendo una sincronizzazione quasi massima.
Conclusion: Assassin's Creed 3 ist ein wirklich gutes Spiel. Es ist schön, dass ein Teil der Serie endlich für eine Nintendo-Konsole erschienen ist. Die Umsetzung ist gut und die meisten Mängel, die der Titel aufweist, sind auch in den anderen Versionen vorzufinden. Spielerisch neu ist lediglich das Schiff, welches vom Spieler gesteuert werden kann. Ansonsten ist das Spielsystem größtenteils gleich geblieben.
