Assassin's Creed 3 Trailer - E3
The game has old character favourite Desmond behind the scenes in the present, using the new Animus 3.0 to explore this new chapter in his ancestry. This chapter is set between the years of 1753 and 1783 in Colonial America, amidst the American Revolution. You will play as Ratohnaké:ton, named otherwise as Connor; a man born of both direct Native American and English descent who has been raised with the Mohawk tribe. When your home is razed to the ground by invaders, vengeance fills you and boils in your blood, spurring you to join the fight. Bring forth justice, and the end to the war that has raged between Assassins and Templars for generations. You are the new hero, with the responsibility of liberty and freedom weighing greatly on your shoulders. Prepare for blood to be shed.
History is your playground once more, with new worlds open for you to explore and brought to life in visually stunning, breathtaking graphical detail. This is implemented greatly by the new Ubisoft Anvil Engine, which engineers seasonal changes: the sun will shine throughout summer, and snow will blanket the landscape during winter; these seasons will greatly affect gameplay in the means of combat and the areas you will be exploring. The main area you will find yourself traversing is the Frontier, the humongous span of wilderness and countryside that bridges the cities of Boston and New York. Alongside the Frontier, you will also be able to explore these commotive colonial towns with new and particularly fun ways, as free running has been improved. Connor possesses the ability to run and climb up trees and branches, as well as slingshot through and around them. You will also be able to find a wide variety of animals in this wilderness, including bears, wolves, rabbits, elk, and deer; you will be able to sell the pelts of these creatures should you be able to hunt and kill them skilfully enough. Should the sheer size of these areas daunt you then fear not, as Fast Travel has been re-introduced for your convenience.
In order to keep up with the incredible game that is Assassin's Creed 3, combat has also been completely revamped and revitalised. A new wide range of weapons to keep in touch with the time period and the character's own personal history are now at your disposal, varying from the signature Hidden Blade, flintlock pistols, bow and arrow, knife, and the deadly tomahawk. The ability to wield dual weapons has now been introduced, which goes hand in hand with other innovative new combat features including multiple take-downs, chain kills, and double counters. Your speed and agility will become great assets once more, and combat dynamics have been completely overhauled with an automated enemy selection system. Assassin's Creed 3 has completely outdone itself with sheer quality, with no stone left unturned without being polished to a gleam. Revolutionary gameplay fit for a Revolution. (Cat Emerson)

Fabness really.. Few problems with it lagging and such but I suspect that's my PC which is getting a little old really. Other than that it was fine.. a few problems with getting stuck in or out of combat mode and getting stuck or falling when free-running but nowhere near to the same degree as in the previous games. Free running through the trees did seem to be a bit dodgy compared with buildings though. Glad there was none of that defend the fort thing going on in this one and much preferred the battling at sea stuff. Yeah.. good game.. Story was a bit short and quick though and didn't really encourage you to do side quests and such much so I found the game ended pretty quickly though I suppose there's nothing to stop you doing side quests afterwards.
Assassins Creed 3 is a great game. I can play it all day, and it's never boring. The multi-player is also very fun, and I think the wolf pack mode in the multi-player is worth buying alone. There's a lot of other things to do in the open world, like doing side quests. Now, in Assassins Creed 3, there's a lot of new stuff, like three climbing and animal hunting. Assassins Creed 3, in my opinion, is the best game of 2012-2011, and it's my favorite game of all time.
Assassin's Creed 3 is incredible. New navigation systems, free-roaming, assassination techniques and stories are shown throughout the game. The plot is sophisticated and surprising, and had me sitting at the edge of my seat for the entire game-play. I simply couldn't stop playing! Hunting, fighting and killing are only a few subjects changed in the new game. The main character, Connor, kill his enemies by breaking bones aggressively and brutally - unlike his previous ancestors, who kill their enemies swiftly and quietly. I have to say, it took a while to get used to the new assassin in the creed and I still have trouble connecting to his personality and lifestyle, but it is worth it! It's by far one of my favorite games of all times!
