3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably fun but embarrassingly unfinished November 25, 2012
By sporked
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard - Steam DRM
It's safe to say that Assassin's Creed 2 set the bar very high for this series - a great mix of creative storytelling, good writing and excellent parkour and combat mechanics made it a real knockout of a game. Unfortunately, Assassin's Creed 3 falls short in pretty much every department. It's not a bad game, and there are a handful of positive additions... but it's a little pathetic to see it fail to meet the standards set even by AC2's expansion games.

The biggest flaw is definitely that the game feels woefully untested. AC3 on the PC has a ridiculous number of bugs, from epileptic horses to menu freezes that make it impossible to proceed, and I've been encountering them in virtually every mission and quite often while just running around. There are also a lot of bewildering things that somehow made it past playtesting; I was killing bears with a hidden blade that was apparently coming out of my bare arm for quite a while before the plot got around to letting me have it, and at one point I was wandering around and completely by accident captured a British Templar fort, which replaced the flag and all the troops there with American revolutionaries... in 1770. In-game tooltips display at very weird moments, like a prompt telling you how to lower your notoriety at a time in the game when none of the methods described are available to you, and every cinematic has a prompt saying "PRESS E TO SKIP" plastered across the corner for the duration. It's not just software bugs, basically - this game feels like it was never tested.

That extends to the writing, too. I'm not far in enough to make a definitive statement about the plot, but it looks like the story level is still reasonably in line with the series' quality so far... but the script is just horrific.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 2, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard - Steam DRM

* Combat system was fun to use, although I did run into difficulty using enemies as human shields. It would not always work as it should which was incredibly frustrating.
* Town graphics / rendering were upgraded from previous versions
* It's Assassin's Creed
* Connor is a bada$$ when the combat system is working properly and that is fun to see and do.
* Desmond's missions. Awesome. Finally got to see him in live action on missions which was great.
* Weather. The added rain affects were awesome. Wish these could've existed in Italy with some of those scenes -- would've looked great.
* Climbing animation was significantly upgraded which was great!
* They developed the game in DX11 for the PC. Very happy to see them utilize the vastly superior PC hardware instead of just direct-porting the inferior console version to PC as they have in the past. I have played the game on XBOX as well, and it is no comparison. To use a common car comparison -- playing this game on the XBOX compared to the PC is like driving a Ford Taurus (XBOX) compared to a Corvette (PC).
* "Tomb Missions". These are now replaced with what are called "Captain Kidd" missions. It is basically a mystery you are trying to solve which is actually pretty cool. You get some great visuals in these missions that look AWESOME on the PC in DX11.
* Naval Missions. As part of your Assassin career, you also Captain "The Aquila", a warship you revive during the game and go out and perform various tasks (rescues, escorts, attacks, etc.). These missions are pretty fun.


* Music. The Music is a significant downgrade from games like AC2 / ACB. The magic the music created in those games is non-existent in this one.
* Story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Honestly, I'm a bit letdown. August 1, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard - Steam DRM|Verified Purchase
I like the Assassins Creed series but over the years, my expectations have been raised and then slapped in the face upon the time of the release. Assassins Creed III really nails this into my head. This is the biggest change in the series with a new main character, a new setting, and new mechanics. i really don't like the beginning part and it drags on for a while to a point where you begin to grow impatient of the Kenway parts and then Connor is relevant all of a sudden. It just seemed a bit odd in the transition and I feel that Kenway was actually a more enjoyable experience. The gameplay is much more complex and things just don't work all the time. From the ways you assassinate to the ways you traverse, you run into some clunky moments. I failed the sync numerous times because of the way to execute a guard from hay kept being annoying (Was using an Xbox 360 controller) or I would get noticed for a glitch moment and have to keep restarting from the checkpoint. The foliage and traversal systems are cool and I really liked the naval combat despite it deriving further away from stealth. It's an ok game that tries to be a technical leap but sort of fails to remind me why I liked the series. I would recommend this at a lower price. Hopefully Black Flag is much better than this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Crashes too often June 5, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard - Steam DRM|Verified Purchase
I just got this game and only got into the begging of the single player mode when it kept crashing. I'm going to try to play it with a better connection and see if it works then.

1.0 out of 5 stars Assassin's Crap III April 19, 2015
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard - Steam DRM|Verified Purchase
Can't play it. My PC has everything it needs to play this and more, (I would know, I built the thing...) and yet... It won't start up... I downloaded the six patches they had (because every time you start it up, it says you need another patch to fix it) Once I ran out of patches to download, I hoped I could finally play it... Guess what? Black screen is all I get. I went to the Ubisoft page to fix the issue, I tried all of the steps... Still doesn't work... I emailed them, they replied with, the same information as they have on their website.. yeah, it'll work since you sent it in an email and put a name at the end... oh wait, no, still doesn't work... If you really want to play this game, I suggest you get it for a console... PC doesn't work...
