Assassin's Creed III is set during the revolutionary era with much of the campaign being focused upon events surrounding the war with England. That being said, this opened up a lot of new possibilities for the Assassin's Creed franchise. Many new additions made it into the game, though the game itself feels as though it stays true to its roots. All in all, I'll break down the various elements of the game (briefly) and score them individually, ending with an overall score of the game.

Storyline: 10/10
Being as how I have been a fan of the Assassin's Creed games since the first one, I have liked all the previous storylines; and this is no exception. The story is great, many twists and turns that you may or may not be expecting, either way, there is rarely a dull moment. Furthermore, this story can be picked up by newcomers to the series (though I would recommend playing the other games before this one to get a COMPLETE sense of the story) and returning fans alike.

Gameplay: 9.5/10
The gameplay is somewhat different from the others in regards to the way you "free-run" as well as to countering attacks and disarming and the like. However, it is simple to pick up and play, but fun enough to keep you interested. Some new gameplay elements were added such as being able to captain the ocean vessel the "Aquila" and complete privateer missions as side-quests. Overall, amazing gameplay with one notable downside. That downside being horseback riding. The horseback riding mechanics in this game are horrendous. I find it odd that in this game, sometimes a horse will get stuck on a miniscule object such as a very small rock, but then can jump over quite a large one. Furthermore, the horse does not handle as well as I'd have liked.

It is an absolutely stunning setting that you are immediately dropped into. They really captured the look & feel of what it must of been like in the Colonies at the time. From the comments the citizenry make towards you, the attitudes of the soldiers instantly capture your imagination. The scenery is meticulously detailed. Ubisoft really went all out by looking at maps of the locations from the time period and built the world around them and brought them to life.

The enemy AI is very good, but not excellent...There will be times you wonder why they didn't see you, while others you will wonder how they saw you...overall however, it is very good and above standard compared to other games that are currently out. The combat system is very fluid & not sluggish and the controls in general are very easy to learn & use.

I was very skeptical about the steelbook case for Assassin's Creed III. Alex Ross, the artist, did a magnificent job capturing the setting of the game the patriotic nature just exudes from it instantly, while maintaining the mystery of the assassin. It is very sturdy & a lot better quality than I had thought it would have been. It does have a shortcoming, and that is that it only holds one disc and the game itself comes with 2 discs. It would have been fantastic had Ubisoft (the games developer) had taken this into consideration and released it was a case that could carry double discs. Aesthetically however, it is absolutely beautiful.

My initial thought was to give it 5 stars, but really the fact that the game comes with 2 discs, but the steelbook can only hold one holds back a star. Definitely worth having if you are a collector.

EDIT: A comment below asked whether or not it came with the game. There were 2 steelbook cases that were put out.

If you want to run through trees, and then jump down a kill a deer with your hidden blade YOU CAN. Also you can kill people this way but the heart of the series is hunting animals to provide you with loot that you can sell or use for quests to help earn 100% synch

I got this game for my 14 year old grandson. He was thrilled and very appreciative. It's fun making one's grandchild that happy.

I was very excited to hear that AC3 was coming out in November and I am very pleased with what was produced. The fighting, simpler yet smoother, is just fantastic and the kill moves they put in are very entertaining to watch. The details of the colonies and just everything in the game is breath taking and the graphics have been updated and look great. As always, Assassins Creed delivers on an interesting story line, this one with some twists and turns that I certainly did not expect. The game is worth the price!

I had the highest expectations for this game. I remember the first images that were released for Assassin's Creed 1 and thinking that it was going to be one of my favorite games. AC1 came and went, and I was pleased. It was fun, if a little repetitive.

AC3 was a no-brainer for pre-order. I played the spin-offs and enjoyed them enough, but watching the hype machine work itself into a frenzy over this game made me ecstatic. I couldn't wait until release day.

I began the game, and waited for it to start. For five hours I played it, waiting for the game to start. You don't play the main character for about that long. Little did I know that would be the best part of the game, story and mechanics considered.

Once Connor comes onto the scene, I was put through another tutorial. I'm almost double digits of hours into this game and I'm still treated to tutorials. But I soldier through because of the promise that was made. The story missions I try to pay attention to, but I begin to notice that they don't make a cohesive narrative. In order to hit all the main points of the American Revolution, we're treated to a highlight reel of events. This game barrels through Connor's life at breakneck speed. I would have spent more time doing side missions, but they're often served one at a time instead of all at once, This might have been to keep me from feeling overwhelmed, but instead I feel like I'm being led on and don't have any idea of when I'll be finished with the sidequests.

The gameplay is actually fun. If you do a block move and use your item you're treated to some pretty cool death animations. The guards in the city are more number and more obnoxious than I remember.
