5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the series December 3, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo WiiU|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What hasn't been said about Assassin's Creed 3 already? The Wii U version is pretty much identical to the PS3 and Xbox versions, with a minor bonuses.

The single player is incredibly amazing and fun. Yes, it may take a while before you can do whatever you want, but that is because the gMe is setting up the entire world and story for you, which is truly immense. The gameplay's never been better and the visuals are absolutely stunning on the Wii U.

The multi player I still also back and better than ever. More modes, more maps, and more refined, it is truly enjoyable multi player experience.

As for the bonus Wii U features, you can have the options of:
-Playing the game normally, with the map on the gamepad.
-Playing the game with the entire HUD on the gamepad, leaving the tv HUD-free, and looks a lot more cinematic.
-Playing the entire game only on the gamepad.

And let me tell you, playing AC3 on the gamepad is truly amazing. Say someone else wants to use the tv, or if you just wanna go to your nearly bed or sofa and relax, you can take the gamepad and play the game, single player and multi player, from there! Of ourselves as long as the system is still on, and as long as the gamepad is within the Wii U's transmitting range.
This feature alone is incredible, and you will probably use it a lot more than you think.

Long story short;
This is one of the best Wii U games available, and one of the best games overall this year. If you are into action-adventure with beautiful visuals, fun game play, and a good emotional story, than this is for you!

Like every other Assassin's Creed game, the in-animus portions are amazing. Well-written, open world, solid combat mechanics. The Desmond sections have always sucked.

The Wii U version is awesome because you can take your entire HUD and put it on the gamepad. You can see your health, money, notoriety, mini-map, EVERYTHING that would normally be on your hud. This gives you a really clean main screen experience. I thought it was really well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Assassin's Creed III November 20, 2012
By Tam23
Platform for Display:Nintendo WiiU|Edition:Standard
I've played this on Xbox 360 and this version looks identical. The game pad displays the games cut scenes and a map during gameplay. This is a great launch title and definitely a good game to show some of the potential of the Wii U.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Assassin's Creed 3 (Wii U version) January 12, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo WiiU|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For someone who has not played through the past editions of Assassin's Creed, It can be a wondrous experience discovering the mechanics governing the latest edition. You start to realize how easy it is to do a free-run, to scale walls and to air-assassinate, which is to kill someone jumping down from a high ledge. By that account alone, it makes playing this game a surreal must-play experience.

But when the story starts to develop to the point where it gets more involved, it is where the game gets epic. The revolutionary war setting starts to take root within your head, and the grand canvas of scope Ubisoft endeavors to deliver to the player starts to hit home. It gets addictive how the mission system, divided by, as they call it, sequences, drives you forward to the next cut-scene. Numerous tasks constitute these sequences, and there are even more sub-objectives to achieve under them.

While some may dislike this modular nature that has seemingly plagued action gaming since its inception, the missions themselves are fun to get through, and they actually work well in building the allure of the setting. You have a clear sense of identity as working with stealth in this premise gives you that covert assassin feel, which Ubisoft takes effort in keeping sacred. The children, and the mob, and the taverns, and the clothing, and pretty much everything there is to experience within the time period, only serves to make the killing all the more joyous.

Some twists and turns along the way bring the game up another level, but Ubisoft goes for more. Integral to the play-periods in between sequences are the many miscellaneous missions that present themselves through big and small ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game on the wii U January 7, 2013
By p140748
Platform for Display:Nintendo WiiU|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played all the other assassin's creed on xbox.
I think this is the best so far. The map is a lot bigger than previous and more stuffs to do in it.
Also, I can choose to play the game entirely on the game pad so the TV can be used to do something else at the same time.
It doesn't seem like many people are playing the online portion of the game. I couldn't find other people to play with.
Over all a great game to play.

This has to be the best Assassin's Creed yet. I've always played them on the 360, but I was insanely excited when they announced the this game for the Wii U. I highly recommend getting this game.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I haven't gotten too far into this game yet but so far I have been very impressed. The controls are very intuitive and easy to use. Since it is a multi-system game it doesn't utilize the Wii U gamepad as other games but good nonetheless.
