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.

Pros:

* 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.

Cons:

* 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.

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.

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.

The price for AC I - III was cheap and the reviews were good, so I decided to buy them. The biggest complaint I have about them is that there are a lot of cutscenes and you will hear the voice of one character speaking. After the sound stops you can see there mouth moving, but there is no sound. This goes on for 3 -4 times longer than the audio went for. When your avatar walks he takes 1 step every 2 seconds. Running is 1 stop per second and running all out is 1.5 steps per second. If your avatar take 3 foot per step this equates to 1 MPH walking speed, 2 MPH running and 3 MPH full out. I have seen video on Youtube from Xbox and Playstation where talking and moving seems to be much faster, but for some reason they have decided to run everything in slow motion for the PC, so that it takes 3 or 4 times longer to play at the expense of the fun. I mistakenly thought people bought video games to have fun.
The controls are absolutely terrible, the worst I have ever seen. In AC III. There are muzzle loading guns which take a long time to load. A faster way would be to drop the empty gun and pick up a loaded one. The screen says push E to drop, pick up or swap weapons, but I often have to hit E 5 or 6 times before The computer complies. There are two things that cause your avatar to turn. One is to slide the mouse across a surface. The other is automatically done by the computer. When you turn your avatar to one side or the other or run over rough ground the computer will make your character more. You never know how much the computer will add to the characters movement and often you overturn and have to turn back. Often you again overturn and have to turn back. It is very difficult to run in a straight line. Other times there are keys I hit the computer ignores or misinterprets.
