Assassin's Creed 3 is the fifth instalment in the saga that has drawn inspiration from incredible moments in history, allowing you to live through members of the past. This is the third numbered title in the legacy, and engulfs you in the past once more with stories steeped in history just begging for you to explore them. Welcome to an entirely new age of Assassin's Creed, where war will shadow your every footstep.
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)

I've wanted to play this for such a long time now and i can finally play this game. I love it, I've played all other assassins creed games to date (with exception to black flags) and i just love them. It teaches you history as your playing, this one is about the revolution. Fun to play, 11/10
I have only recently discovered the Assassin's Creed games and in the last month I have completed the previous 4 games. Assassin's Creed III is by far the best of the lot and the DLC really adds to the game. I am really looking forward to black flag in a couple of months time.
Assassin's Creed 3 arrived within a short number of days without a single scratch, works perfectly without any problems so far. Plus the price is awesome the cheapest I found on the internet, very good offer.
Assassin's Creed 3 is slow to get going, but once Connor and all of his abilities are available to the player, faffing about has never been so diverse. There are numerous and diverse enemies and challenges to confront and defeat, and many side quests that can be completely avoided with little to no loss of story depth. That being said, I do have one problem - the guards. They detect player actions far too easily and they are numerous. However after the player reaches sufficient skill level, the issues start to go away. The fighting mechanics from the last games are done away with - block is now B, and the trigger has been all but removed as a part of combat. This is a difficult change to get used to at first, but it can be done. Free running mechanics are changed as well, to hop fences and tables the player needs to hold A but other than that the only thing you need to do while free running is hold the trigger. This frees up the right thumb more for camera angle adjustment.
Assassin's Creed 3 is an amazing entry into the Assassin's Creed universe. It offers greater freedom than before with a revamped climbing system. Everything in this game is smoother than before. The amount of time spent on polishing this game has paid off in what is definitely the best Assassin's Creed gameplay experience so far.
I was a little bit biased, as there have been many negative things said about bugs and the game not feeling like assassins creed title, but one you get through the first 5-6 memories, its all good again. Also, this time around there are many more things to do, making AC3 nearly a sandbox. You can do Homestead mini-missions, you can sail and do naval combat (unfortunately its too easy), you can do main missions etc. My biggest complaint is that you cant see all the gear/goods you buy at home and can't customize it. Could've been a great addition. Also, the climbing up to view points is easy and boring this time, but it comes with setting - there were no grand cathedrals in americas at the time. Overall - a solid entry into franchise, making the world more open.
The story of Assassin's Creed 3 is way too long to set up, yet so predictable. Most of dialogues are boring. The different "hubs" you've got to manually cross to come and go attending every mission are, at the end, very, very unpleasant. The relationship between Desmond and his father is so cliché and does not bring any light to the main scenario. The game play carries on the same default I found when I played Assassin's Creed 2 the first time. Sometimes Desmond is hard to control due to bad angle of the camera. Personally, I found the ship battles mission very similar and unpleasant to play. I just want to finish the main story, by honour, but I don't find it pleasant to keep Desmond moving on. Maybe I'm too old to appreciate this fifth opus, maybe I'm tired with financial matters put before gamers' pleasure. Maybe, this fifth one, despite all differences, is way too similar to the former ones. It's very frustrating.
Assassin's Creed 3 is a very good and addictive game. It's as good as any of the previous games in the series. My favorite one is still Brotherhood, but this one is still very good.
So far so creed, which is a good thing. Not far into Assassin's Creed 3 yet but so far I'm enjoying it. The controls do seem to have been improved for the character and moving them around. However, I did accidentally murder a courier right in front of two red coats by pressing X rather than B. I spent the subsequent chase across rooftops being shot at until I managed to evade them. In this game the redcoats don't climb onto the roofs to get to you it, unlike the Brotherhood game but this is fairly realistic as who else would be able to clamber up buildings like Spider-man whilst holding a musket!?
The game was in perfect condition, arrived pretty quickly and is enjoyable! I guess it would help if you'd played the other games, but it's not essential as it would be fun anyway!
Overall Assassin's Creed 3 is a brilliant game. They made enough changes to keep your interest for another year. This game features great graphics and good gameplay.
As an Assassin's Creed game fan, I've played all previous games and I just can't stop playing. It's like a good wine - as time goes it's getting better.
Assassin's Creed 3 is an excellent game, and a great continuity of the AC franchise. I loved it!
Assassin's Creed 3 is the most enjoyable adventure yet in the assassin creed series, it's well worth the money.
Assassin's Creed 3 is an alright game. I was expecting more from the reviews it had but it's still good for the price I paid and not the price it usually goes for.
I bought Assassin's Creed 3 for such a great price for my boyfriend. This is an excellent game and I was happy with my purchase!
Assassin's Creed 3 starts a bit slow and in the beginning I was like this is not AC. Later on it redeems itself. Great story, suspense, graphics and gameplay.
Assassin's Creed 3 is a good game. It's not the best in the series, but it has nice graphics and game play.
Assassin's Creed 3 is worth playing.
Assassin's Creed 3 is a great game and a great series and looking forward to number 4 now.
Was very impressed with the other titles in this series and was a bit reluctant to play yet another one as I thought it would just be more of the same. WRONG! This one holds its head high above the rest with fantastic graphics and a cool story line. You won't be disappointed. ,
Assassin's Creed 3 is a good game that I can play for hours and delivery of the game took about 3 working days.
Assassin's Creed 3 is the fifth game of the Assassin's Creed series. The game takes us with Connor to the new world of America. While we explore the great cities of Boston, New-York and many more areas we witness and take place in some of the greatest moments of history, like the Tea Party of Boston. As we fight for the freedom of the American nation we defeat many British red-coats soldiers and work side by side with some of the famous people who built the nation of America, such as George Washington and many more. The gameplay has improved a lot since the last Assassin's creed game and the battles are truly awesome. If you liked the previous games of Assassin's Creed and if you are new to the series, this game is one from the must-have list, have fun!
Assassin's Creed 3 is another excellent game. It's thoroughly thought out and well designed. It has good graphics and ease of controls.
Great game for the best price, really pleased.
The Assassin's Creed 3 was for my son, but I have had a quick game or two. I must say the story is excellent and fans will not be disappointed. The graphics are stunning and the enemy is even more lethal because of the 19th century weaponry. All in all a very good game.
Excellent service great product
I am delighted with Assassin's Creed 3, it's a really great game.
Great thanks! Love the free USB stick!
Assassin's Creed 3 is a very cool game. I'd highly recommend it!
Assassin's Creed 3 is a fantastic game. I really recommend it.
Assassin's Creed 3 is the best game in the series yet!
This Game is A-w-e-s-o-m-e ! I played this for only 10 hours and I'm glad I bought this from your store. I hope to enjoy this kind of games with low prices. Thank you Zavvi !
For me the game wasn't so wow as the others assassins creed's... The world was to open for me
The beauty of Assassins Creed 3 can be measured with the beauty of most extraordinary pieces of art. Set in America in 18th century, the overwhelming fascinations of the look and feel of this game will leave your mouth open and sat back in a chair for hours and hours. You will get the sense of rewriting history with nothing but a controller in your hand. Gazing through beautiful pine forests, walking through a Boston market filled with people, with every objective more interesting than the last. This game will take hours and hours of your life but all I can say is that it is absolutely worth it.
Back to form - they needed to mix things up since the first 4 but this is the biggest improvement since AC2!
Assassin's Creed 3 is a great game that comes with a 1gb bracelet. This is the best value for money.
Assassin's Creed 3 is one of the best games I have ever played. It has a great storyline and the game play is good. It also stays true to the first two games. The 1GB bracelet was a nice little extra too. It felt good quality and looked pretty cool. I ended up giving it to my little cousin in the end and he loved it.
Incredible addition to the Assassin's Creed series!
An incredible experience, just overflowing with content and things to do. There will be something in this game you love and many side quests are completely optional but take many, many hours to complete them all. There are a few glitches which detract from the experience, but are to be expected in a game this ambitious. Pretty much every negative is a limitation of the Xbox and I can't wait to see what the next gen assassins creed will bring.
