Good game, easily outgrown
26 February 2010
Summary: The game itself is fun, good graphics, excellent storyline, and all around entertaining. However the game is easily beaten (I did it in 3 days) and it has zero reply value. I recommend this as a rental instead of shelling out the $50 and beating it in less than a week.
Summary: Wheres the story line? I get revenge within the first 30 minutes. I then kill all his associates, and then kill all the associates' associates. No one even knows why I'm killing them anymore not even me!
Summary: The game feels like one giant tutorial for the first 10 hours. Seriously. After that when you finally get to the "meat" of the game it really picks up. Ezio is a very likable character, the voice acting is mostly excellent, and the weird hidden conspiracy stuff is great.
Summary: The mechanics are weird and it doesn't make me want to do anything else apart from the main storyline. I never fell in love with the new characters like I did with Ezio and the animations and cut scenes are far less slick. Not impressed tbh.
Summary: So breaking the game into the good and bad points good: online play is fun and unique, combat flows slightly better than in other games. the sailing and ship to ship combat is a lot of fun its a shame there isn't more of it.
Summary: Compared to previous Assassins Creed games I think 3 was very disapointing. A slow, plodding pace where you literally feel like you're crawling through treacle when the snow falls in the wilderness. The ship elements of the game adds very little also
Better than the last two, but the novelty is growing old, fast

Summary: I have been playing assassins creed since the franchise was first released and don't get me wrong, its an absolute blast, most of the time. But since brotherhood i think both games have been exactly the same.
