Assassin's Creed III: Liberation HD
21 January 2014
Excerpt: It's a curious time to rerelease Assassin's Creed: Liberation . The one time PlayStation Vita exclusive takes the series back to a much simpler and understandably smaller scale than last year's Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and runs the risk of turning new fans off from the series.
Conclusion: It's been five years since Altair put Assassin's Creed on the map. After his moment in the sun, Ezio starting prancing around and decided that counting to three wasn't his style. Because of this, it's been awhile since the Assassin's Creed story has really moved forward.
Summary: Despite the slow start, Assassin’s Creed III remains fun and engaging throughout, especially when inside the Animus. I wish I could say the same about the wrap-around storyline, which is actually the least exciting aspect of the game and only serves to connect the previous titles with the next...
Summary: Between its original release on consoles and this slightly delayed PC port, I've had a lot of time to think about Assassin's Creed III. That's not a luxury I have with a lot of reviews, and sadly one that does not bode well for Ubisoft's biggest holiday release.
Conclusion: When I first started playing Assassin’s Creed III at the start of this week, I was really disappointed by it. I can’t quite put my finger on the problem, it just felt boring and uninspiring.
Conclusion: In a sentence, Assassin’s Creed III is a fun game. It does not make as huge of a jump as the series did between the freshman and sophomore efforts, but it is clear that the game is the product of a development team that really loves the franchise they have created.
Excerpt: series over the years. This franchise is so ambitious, so complex, so overwrought that the games often feel like they're barely being held together, that from a gameplay and narrative (and not technical) perspective, they could crumble under their own weight at any time.
Conclusion: The PC version of Assassin's Creed III is above and beyond what you will find on the console version. It's got better visuals, smoother frame rate, easier controls and better gameplay mechanics.
Assassin's Creed 3: Tyranny of King Washington - Episode 2 DLC review
19 March 2013
Summary: In the last episode, Connor learned the power of the Wolf Cloak, which allows you to turn invisible as you move between cover. In this episode the power he unlocks is much more dramatic: the power of flight.
Pros: The flying mechanic works well, Some great stealth set-pieces
Cons: Boston barely feels any different from AC3, Still no decent side missions
