    Assassin's Creed III has some very notorious flaws, the most obvious one is the tedious and boring it can be. The whole Assassin's Creed experience is here, with some interesting themes from the American Revolution, but the lack of interesting things to do, lots of bugs and other annoying things are just disappointing. Even so, Assassin's Creed doesn't fail to give you 20 good hours of gameplay.

    The Wii U version of the game is surprisingly exactly the same as the other versions, for a newly launched console that is impressive. After playing the other versions, I am impressed with how the port turned out. The game in general though doesn't live up to what most wanted. The gorgeous graphics and enormous environments are an absolute blast to look at and explore.

After playing the other versions, I am impressed with how the port turned out. The game in general though doesn't live up to what most wanted. The gorgeous graphics and enormous environments are an absolute blast to look at and explore. However even with some day 1 patches and other patches over the past couple months, the game still plays very roughly. While the free-run works slightly better than it did, trying to get it to work out in the frontier up in the trees is even more finicky than up on the rooftops. Combat is basically attacking and countering over and over again until everyone's dead. Sure you could probably do some cool tricks, but most are pretty context sensitive. Missions feel like they weren't play tested, many times I was at a complete loss as to what to do. Multiplayer on the Wii U version is still pretty dead, not a whole lot of people play it compared to the Xbox and even Ps3 versions. Overall the games presentation is a massive step forward, but the gameplay has some issues to work out in AC4 Expand

    Amazing graphics, great start for the game. But its still got the same old issues as any other game. And i really dont like connor. Hes whiny, and a bit stupid if im honest. I got really bored and shelved this game until i got nothing better to play, and thats going to be a while concidering the stellar catalouge of games out atm.

    Well. I've disliked all of the AC series since after the second one came out. Why? It's C.O.D., but with a better story and game play. They just kept taking the same graphics, same physics, and well, same everything and re-releasing it with a continued story, a new map and a few new weapons. Now, I love the story of AC, so that puts it at 5/10, and I gave this one two extra points becauseWell. I've disliked all of the AC series since after the second one came out. Why?

Now I'm not saying the AC series is bad, it's just repetitive and doesn't deserve a ton of respect for recycling the same game. Expand

    this game is the same as on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 only shows the map and the goal and no more, is equal in every way than the other consoles

    Assassin's Creed III is a solid title for Wii U with some small but nice GamePad features and the solid gameplay that the series is known for, The Wii U version is very similar to the other versions of the game with no massive Gamepad functionality, It mainly provides you with a map which is still nice to have, the story is decent but a bit inconsistent with the main issue being the newAssassin's Creed III is a solid title for Wii U with some small but nice GamePad features and the solid gameplay that the series is known for, The Wii U version is very similar to the other versions of the game with no massive Gamepad functionality, It mainly provides you with a map which is still nice to have, the story is decent but a bit inconsistent with the main issue being the new main character called Conner, who is generally an uninteresting character who constantly changes his mind.. he just isn't very interesting and a lot of the supporting cast is uninteresting as well, Seeing all the great characters in previous AC games would make you think that would be the case here, but it isn't. Gameplay has some nice additions with it's fast dual wield combat and being able to traverse through the forests of the frontier with ease, the naval combat is a real standout here with some intense battles with great controls.

    If you like the Assassin's Creed series you will most likely like this game, and if you are a Wii U owner getting into the series for the first time you will find enjoyable gameplay and a solid multiplayer component but it is not as good as previous AC titles. The American Revolution is a great setting for the game but it was not used as well as it could have been. Even so this is one of the best launch titles for Wii U and definitely worth a play.

    Almost identical to the Xbox and PS3 versions, but limited GamePad features are disappointing. [Feb 2013, p.75]

    Assassin's Creed III sure as hell provides one of the best gaming experiences so far on Nintendo's new console. Despite some technical issues the recall value and the hunt for Templars once again round out a great game.
  3. A massive, lovingly crafted game that's stuffed with things to do, but the limited GamePad functionality and linear mission design are disappointing.
