About Assassin's Creed 3

Set between the years 1753 and 1783, the war between the Assassins and the Templars has moved to Colonial America. The player takes on the role of a young half-English, half-Mohawk man named Connor Kenway (also known by his birth name, Ratohnhaké:ton), who is drawn into the fight against tyranny when his home is attacked by white colonists. Over the course of the game, the player will encounter historical figures including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Israel Putnam, General Lafayette and Charles Lee.

Assassin's Creed III builds strongly on the series but fails to take a giant leap of faith into any real new territory. A new plot, the Colonial America setting, and sheer volume of things to do outweigh the disappointing bugs and glitches.

We like

  • Great sense of place in Colonial America
  • Compelling narrative
  • Fun gameplay

We dislike

  • Bugs and graphic issues
  • Lots to do, but loosely tied together
  • Poor enemy A.I.

Yet like other games in the series, Assassin's...
