    Combat is incredible, and the cities of Boston and New York deliver some of the strongest open-world gameplay you'll experience this generation. And yet, it's still an extremely uneven experience, even if the strong gameplay outlives the issues to make for a solid package.

    Stop judging the "Wii U version", because this is a normal version, like the 360/PS3/PC versions are. Assassin's Creed III is a great game,Stop judging the "Wii U version", because this is a normal version, like the 360/PS3/PC versions are. Assassin's Creed III is a great game, from the beginning to the end. Great multiplayer and everything else. Just a few problems, like the inconsistent story. For this version, there are many new features in the Wii U Gamepad. Even if you don't like the use of the new controller, you can use the Pro Controller to play classically. Full Review »

The graphics maybe the same as the 360 and ps3, but with this versions what you see is what you get. On the Wii U, the map and horse calling is on the gamepad. But only on the Wii U can you play the game on the gamepad and not just the t.v.
    Some people may say you can do this on the 360 or ps3, remember the Wii U just came out and its up to the developer how they handle the games.

    This is a must buy on the Wii U

The game looks a little softer, maybe a tad more blurry, but it is the same exact game on the other consoles. I did have to use a controller instead of the pad after a while. Like most launch games the pad features did not do anything for me. There were a few glitches though and I don't remember the other versions having this much draw in. But this version seemed to run a tad better than the 360 version. I will take the performance instead of a slight graphical upgrade. But why an 8? Simply put the first 2 hours of the game is boring and the game pad ended up just being a gimmick. Full Review »
