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: Despite being deeply flawed, 2007’s Assassin’s Creed was a damn fine example of the current console generation’s potential, one that was achieved in the subsequent Ezio trilogy. But unlike its predecessors, Assassin's Creed III was a game that had few flaws to fix, no big problems to correct, and no gameplay mechanics to reinvent.
Pros: Convinient use of GamePad screen, Remote Play support for TV-less gameplay, Complete version of the game
Cons: Sometimes muddy textures and shadows, Even more glitches than the other versions, Multiplayer servers are empty
Summary: The original 'Assassin's Creed' was a unique but flawed game that set up an interesting world and premise. Unfortunately, the play mechanics were not as precise as they should have been, leading to a title that held more promise than pleasure. Ubisoft, realizing what could be, perfected the formula with 'Assassin's Creed II'. Not only was the gameplay more engaging, but the new lead, Ezio Auditore, immediately became one of the leading characters in all of video gaming.
Excerpt: Connor is a difficult character to like in some respects, because he has little interest in the plight of the patriots except as it relates to the security of his own people. He tends to act a bit like an overgrown child in some instances, lashing out at the people around him, then trusting them and helping them only a short time later. If he’s not the perfect hero, though, at least his shortcomings make him seem human.
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.
Excerpt: I have spent a lot of hours playing the Assassin’s Creed franchise, from Altair right through to Connor, and I have come to expect a certain level of quality from it. I am happy to report that this high standard has been reached once again, if not surpassed, with Assassins Creed III. Most people have probably played this title already on another console but regardless the Wii U addition is, in most facets, just as good.
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.
