Excerpt: With its fusion of Matrix-like science-fiction and painstaking attention to historic detail, the Assassin’s Creed franchise is one of the most popular game series in some time. Assassin’s Creed III brings the trilogy to a close.
Pros: Fusion of new zones with familiar city layouts, Fluid and fun combat, Smooth traversal
Cons: Bloated features, Pacing problems, Desmond sections fall short
