Did you hate American history in school? That is probably because your text book wasn’t assassin’s creed III. What I love about the game is that they don’t shy away from some of the uncomfortable truths about the birth of America weaving it into an amazing fictional storyline. While it is slow to start once it gets going, you will be fully engulfed.
Like the other two games before it Assassin’s Creed III is played in third-person across the 18th-century frontier, Boston, and New York. The game’s cities are packed with things to do: buildings to climb, people to kill, dogs to pet, guards to avoid, assassins to recruit, almanac pages to collect, underground mazes to explore, tomahawks to buy, plague-infested blankets to burn and did I mention dogs to pet.
The game runs around 50 hours without DLC so if you start now and don’t sleep you will have time to get through Assassin’s Creed III before Halo or Black Ops drop. But here is the thing, this game is so deep and so fun to play with a staggering number of side missions you might be better off with the slow burn and just take some time off to play the other two and come back to Assassin’s Creed to enjoy it.
If you are like me you thought the multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed II was terrible, well the good news is that they took another look at Multiplayer and revamped it to give players a chance to enjoy this amazing game with your friends. New games like Manhunt which what 1v1 in Call of Duty SHOULD have been like, and Wolfpack where you and your group are assigned targets and get extra play time for eliminating those targets these Multiplayer additions will be fan favs for sure.
Should you buy this game, YES!
For the tree climbing alone it is great and if I can offer one hint – don’t wait to build up your homestead as you will miss out on a lot of cool boats and other gear if you don’t get all capitalist as soon as you can.
