3.0 out of 5 stars Hold on...accidently ran up a wall again... November 10, 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Assassin's Creed 2 restored my faith in open world games. I've played every one of the AC games and each title has it's own strengths and weaknesses. Out of the entire lineup, Assassin's Creed III has some of the best characters and delivers one of the best stories in the series but not enough thought was put into so many important areas of gameplay that Assassin's Creed III turns into a flawed disappointment.

**THE GOOD**
-The characters are memorable. Here's the thing: Connor isn't Ezio, nor should he be. If you're looking for a wild, charismatic guy who flirts with ladies and does whatever he wants, then Connor is the exact opposite of that. In fact, I'd say Connor's personality is very true to his culture. If he acted like Ezio as a young boy, I'd imagine his people would have thought something was seriously wrong with Connor. His quiet and humble nature suits him well. The side characters have their moments as well. The interactions between Charles Lee and Thomas Hickey, as well and Haytham and Connor are very fun and keep the player in guessing what happens next. The characters on your Homestead are also very funny and a delight to help out from time to time.

-The story is also engaging. Seeing what you read as a kid during history class in elementary school brought to life and getting to play in that environment is amazing! Being a part of the Boston Massacre and The Battle of Bunker Hill seriously gave me a special feeling inside. I'm not a history buff or anything, but the amount of research involved with both story and characters is done exceptionally well. For non-Americans, I've noticed a large disconnect with the events that happen in the game. A few of my European friends that played the game have stated this and found the story pretty dull.

4.0 out of 5 stars A historian's perspective on ACIII November 16, 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First, I have not completed the game yet. I'm about halfway through. I am both incredibly pleased and impressed with parts of the game and mildly annoyed at others.

Here's the nerdy history guy's take: If you like history -- particularly the American Revolution -- you have never had a chance to experience such an accurate and detailed deception of life in colonial America. As someone who has been obsessed with everything related to the American Revolution, I felt like a kid in a candy store. Granted, you don't seem to actually participate that much in the actual events of the revolution, but you still get to experience the environment, architecture, etc. And you get to meet some influential Americans from the time. And take part in a couple battles (at least). The historical accuracy is both surprisingly great and stupidly wrong. Tiny details, like the humid horrid battle of Monongahela during the French and Indian War are surprisingly spot on -- even down to steaming earth and soldiers grumbling about the weather. The flags in all the battles are represented accurately, as best I can tell. This is historically spot on -- unlike the ridiculously inaccurate (but entertaining) movie The Patriot. However, the depiction of British and Colonial soldiers is not right at all. British dragoons lead foot soldiers on foot patrols with bright red uniforms? (Dragoons are mounted cavalry troops and wore bright green and white uniforms) British Highland troops did fight and wear kilts, but they fought in independent groups, not generally interspersed among random other troops. Also, every "musket" I have seen so far appears to be a Pennsylvania or Kentucky Long-Rifle. This is totally inaccurate. The Brown Bess was the primary musket used on both sides.

3.0 out of 5 stars So much lost potential... November 20, 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a buggy mess. And on top of that there are tons of fundamental gameplay problems. The only explanation I can muster is that they rushed this game to market and knew how buggy it was when they did it. Given the serious issues, I really don't understand how it's getting such high reviews from critics. I mean, I LOVED AC2, Brotherhood, and Revelations. I REALLY wanted to love this game... but in the end I was really disappointed.

The Good:
- The frontier looked amazing (minus graphics glitches)
- Tree running is fun!
- The naval missions were brilliant. Simply brilliant.
- Connor's story, while uneven, became better as the game went on

The Bad:
- A TON of bugs and glitches and gameplay problems that destroyed the immersiveness of the game (and make it aggravating to play)
- There was no coherent tutorial on the controls, on how to fight, how to make money, how to manage assassins, etc. I had to read the manual or Google to figure out most of that stuff.
- The maps and menus were a cluttered, confusing mess
- The main story didn't flow very well... there were parts that worked really well, but for the most part it felt like a bunch of unrelated events thrown together. There just weren't that many memorable moments either.
- The side missions were mostly tedious and unoriginal (find this, or kill that). Brotherhood and Revelations were much more varied and creative in this sense.
- The music was no where near as memorable as AC2
- I really, really, dislike how they ended the "modern day" story
