A real blast to play

Summary: My first entry into the Assassin's Creed Series. I picked it because of the Historical time period. I read the posted reviews before purchasing and obviously many of them were written by "hard core" gamers, which I am not. I enjoy single player only and have had bad experiences on line attempting multiplayer games. There are certain parts of AC3 that are a little tedious, but that happens with all games.
Summary: I love this game! I really love the sea battles. Really enjoy the time period chosen as well. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Leonardo Da Vinci stuff in the prior game, but am really enjoying the colonial time period and Sons of Liberty storyline. Really just all around good fun.
Amazing game! Great optimization by Ubisoft for PC

Summary: Amazing game! Great game in the Assassin's creed franchise. Honestly one of my favorites up there with assassin's creed 2. Only bad part about this game is the poor mob and city construction. Most of the world seems too similar in many different areas and more often than not it feels like you're in the same area over and over again.
Half way through installing the game I got a message ...
22 December 2014
Summary: Half way through installing the game I got a message that Punkbuster had not installed because it did not have access, but the game installed anyway. I then tried to play the game and got a message that a file was missing and the game would not play, that I might be able to correct this by re-installing the game. During re-installing the game I again got a message that Punkbuster was not installed and when I tried to play I got a message that a file was missing.
Summary: When on sale, this game is totally worth it. It's true the first hours are more linear than previoos AC titles, but I don't mind at all since I like to follow the story. I think the developers wanted to test new type of gameplay. In my opinion, it's well done. After several patches, the game is quite stable and not buggy. Performance is quite good on my i5 with GTX 780.
Summary: Assassin's Creed 3 continues the downward spiral began by Revelations. Why don't I like it? Here's the list: - Boring plot (unless you're into the revolutionary history but even then I doubt you will find it exciting), - boring and meaningless characters and events (particularly if you're not American and don't realise that you're bumping into famous people every two steps).
Summary: This is not a review of the content as I cannot state what the content is like. Even after going back and forth with Ubisoft Technical Support for going on 6+ months now this Season Pass will not work. Ubisoft is insistent even after sending them a copy of my Amazon Receipt and a copy of my Code from my Digital Vault that this is not a valid code for PC (the code I was given was for console apparently, according to Ubisoft).
Summary: A stunning game, despite all of the hate around it. Definitely not the worst of the AC series, and arguable one of the best-looking open world games out there. Combat feels great, and the animations are incredible. Conner (the main protagonist) has over 1000 character animations alone. Naval combat is fun, although the old tailing missions are still here.
Summary: I feel like AC is dumbing down the controls and Conor is such an ass of a character it's hard to like him. Whenever you are out of the Animus it's so confusing on what to do next or go if you leave the game for a while and come back, not to mention being useless against Abstergo agents it's so frustrating. I like the story but so far it's the second worst one I've played (AC 1-3, Brotherhood, Revelations, Liberation, and Black Flag).
