Is Connor's cause worth fighting for, or is this one memory that can be forgotten? Personally, I would vote for the latter, or I am at least leaning to that side far more than the other. I enjoyed the previous games in the franchise, but this one does...

Assassin's Creed III is a beautiful and exciting new addition to the Assassin's Creed line. The story is well written and the adaptation of an open world environment is very well implemented. The game is much longer than other current titles released...

Assassin's Creed 3 is an action-adventure, open world, role playing game. This is the third game in the Assassin's Creed series. While each of the previous titles supported DirectX 9, AC3 is the first game in the series to run DX11. The game launched for...

This week I have been spending time with the much anticipated Assassin's Creed III, the latest free-roaming AAA title from Ubisoft. Now I'm a big fan of the original two Assassin's Creed games, although I will admin I haven't played any of the in-between...

SummaryOverall, Assassin's Creed III is a great game with combat and parkour elements that have been improved for the better. The game has its shortcomings but they can be forgiven considering the overall package on offer. It will take you nearly 20...

Entertaining storytelling and fantastic naval combat marred by terrible mission design and endemic feature creep.

Connor's story is one of unlikely alliances and broken traditions; Desmond's is one of urgent decisions and past regrets. And their parallel narratives bridge the past and the present, even as both men look into an uncertain future.

With Assassin's Creed III finally out for all platforms, it's about time we looked under the hood. Is this game a revolutionary, or just sidenote in videogame history?INTRODUCTIONIt's been a long time since I found myself bubbling with excitement in...

Earlier I speculated that AC3 marks the beginning of a new path for the series and of that I remain convinced. The new dynamism in terms of animation, mission variation and scope bodes well for the series and in Kenway they've hit upon a noble, if...

You can't argue with the mammoth quantity on offer in what's in fact the fifth in this series of historical action games. Assassin's Creed III is a giant sack full of diversions, putting even its famously content-packed predecessors to shame. Maybe its...

Couple that with another consistently excellent multiplayer component and you're left with a game that may leave you frowning on occasion, but nonetheless one that still has a lot of fun on offer.

If you're a fan of the series, you'll be delighted. If you're a newcomer, you'll be enthralled – and good luck understanding the main narrative. The only complaint one could have is about the game's protagonist.

If you only play two assassin games this year (because let's face it, you've probably already played that other one), make this one of them. I’d be very surprised if this doesn’t make Game of the Year for most.
