Average User Score: 8.1Oct 14, 2013This game is not for everyone but for some who wants a rich story with great conflicted characters then this is your game. It's not a heavy action game with the gameplay being restricted throughout the gameplay. The Playstation 3 literally shows what it can do on its end to the Playstation 4 coming in a couple months.
Pros: Story, Character, Design, Graphics, Immersed world, Aiden, Choices
Cons: Controls, Restricted game-play
Conclusion: Game-play is a little troubling to get through but the whole experience so rich and so great that people who skip the game would miss something so different than most games society has played.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5Mar 13, 2013In short, if you are a God of War fan or an action fan, you will love the hell out of this game. Graphics Amazingly Beautiful. Game play- The same old hack/slash but with more intuitive controls and control during quick time event sequences. BRUTALLITY!!! I mean really brutal. Story A more understanding story like God of War 1 and Ghost of Sparta. It's not like we haven't seen a humanoid Kratos but it gives us more a understanding to his motivations why he just hates gods overall. Pacing is an issue though with some difficulty spikes that will agitate the hell out of you. I'd say if they didn't spread the health chest around then this would have been the hardest God of War game I played and I played 3 on Titan Mode. No Multiplayer Part I'm not regreting my 60 bucks.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.9Nov 12, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. *GAMES EVOLVE* I can understand that people are saying Halo 4 has call of duty features but is that really a bad thing? Does the shooting feel like COD or the action, atmosphere, art design, characters, story, gah its Halo 4 you guys. Games have to evolve every now and then. Uncharted 3 Had loadouts, perks, money system for weapon attachments, character customization, etc and that is still a great multiplayer. Gears of war, you choose what gun you want to start and that has a loadout, maybe not a perk but hell your pretty much a super soldier already. I don't understand why people can't take change. Anyways I just wanted to take that in perspective that GAMES EVOLVE or you'd hate how halo would be if it was the exact same thing like the *Cough* Modern*coughs* Warfare*coughs* series*coughs*. Just know that I'm not disrespecting you guys, just get time with the changes. *Review* I have to say this is the best Halo by far since it seems more in depth into what the franchise is. I am gladly to say this is the real reason why I bought an Xbox for. Story - After almost 5 years(forgot the exact date) since the last game, seeing in Halo 3 where Master Cheif and Cortana were drifting off in space, waiting to be found. After 4 years in cryosleep, Master Chief was awaken by Cortana since they were being invaded by the covenent, later to be found by the Forerunner Planet "Requiem" being sucked in by the gravitational pull and stranded on the planet. Without giving too much away, the story in this game is not only about Master Chief but more into Cortanas side of her story; just in Master Cheifs perspective. Halo series never been really a selling point of its story but lore. This one seems more in depth of it's story though it is short, it is the best story by far and engaging as it give us the reason why we're really fighting the Covenent. Gameplay - Alright, this is where people really want to know if this still feels like a Halo game. Still shooting from the hip?(Yep) Stilll Energy Sheild?(Yep) Still have the badass assualt rifle?(Yep) Plays like reach?(Yep) So whats new about it? Well theres alot of new things in this game. New weapons going for in depth with the covenents but also a new species called the prometheans, which you use they're guns off on their body parts. The gameplay is still that old Halo formula we all know and love. The game also has had a great redone over its graphics, making the xbox go through its full potential though with some merky texture going up close to things. The multiplayer is still there, though it is a little faster than the other ones. I don't know what to say but rather that its **** awesome. It has high replayablity with many and I mean MANY game modes that are **** fun. Some I wish they didnt' take out like SWAT on reach but overall it is a goood **** game.
This is the best Halo and xbox game I… Expand
Average User Score: 6.9Oct 31, 2012What I'm going to say is that a 10 score is not for it being a perfect game. It saying that it is well worth my money that I bought this glorious game. For those who reviewed the game in only a couple hours and yet to do everything is not a fair review. Here is a fair review why I think Assassin's Creed 3 is a Glourious game.
*A SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGN REVIEW and some spelling errors*
The game starts you off right after revelations where after Desmond seen the truth behind the 2012 incident years ago. Desmond and his crew went in the vault inorder to save the world but only to find that there is a series of power keys you need to find in order to open the pathway to something far beyond in the inner depths of the world. Desmond fall into a stasis and went back on the animus to find out that during the 1700's, he had other ancestors that related to the vault he was in. You start to play as Hathym(SP), an grandmaster assassin, trying to find the exact vault that Desmond is already in with a huge twist in the beginning. Sooner later You start to play as another ancestor, Connor Kenway(Ratohnhaké:ton) from child to teenanger, trainy, then a full pledge Assassin. There is some Desmond story throughout the hours you put into the game and talking to the crew: Shaun, Rebbecca, and William(Desmonds Father), though most of it is talking then taking small missions to obtain the power cells. Ubisoft made it more intriging to know the characters better as even a interative talk gives the characters more meaning and life. Some characters are brought back for explanation like Ezio, Altiar, Lucy, the alien gods, and Subject 16 with some new ones as well.
The graphics of this game is outstanding. To facial animations, little small animations that gives you the feel that your in the world, the detail on other characters and the world, setting and rich atmosphere of snow, rain, spring,etc. The 5 years that Ubisoft took on this game shows though the fire can be abit better. During when i was playing through Conners child missions, going in the burning village was really awesome but the fire kinda look like water colored with red,orange, and yellow. With some minor bugs that I experince with didn't ruin the game for me, but it can be silly to look at sometimes like a bayonette musket floatin in the air.
The gameplay is changed dramaticually in this game, making it more simpiler than the others. People who can't seem to adjust to the controls should have expected it because of the content in this game. There is hunting,running, fighitng, stealth, boat battles, uses of inventories, etc. It's endless and I can see why people think its all clustered. To me, i thought it was pretty played out well, except the few minor experinces with the parkour free run when I didn't meant to run up some walls but gladly they didnt bother me. The AI in the game is kind of wonky with me in where I was literally infront of the redcoats while in the bushes and I stook out like a sore thumb yet he didnt' notice me.Gives me that flawed Assassins Creed AI feel to me which is great actually. Combat is alot better with vaired of weaponary in uses which how you want to dispose the enemy, either tomahawk them to death, use the dagger?hidden blade, bow, dart ropes, swords, musket, flicklocks,etc. This combat made me feel more impact of the feeling of actually hitting them kinda like Uncharted and Batman since they give you the feel of acutally being in the fight. You can mash buttons but come on, alot of people do that. The sound of the game gives life to it. The crowd of its screaming, conversations, pigs, dogs, anything you see in real life is pretty much what it feels here. The voice acting is astonishing with Benjimin Franklin, George Washington, the natives, Conner. its all top notch thought the Indian Native language voice acting seems abit off sometimes but still give that cutural feeling. Gameplay sound is good, sounds more clear than the pervious games though sometimes the audio is cut out( I only experinced it once).
You can see that i greatly enjoyed the hell out of this game. I put over hours of this game and still loving it. I highly recommend to pick this game up. Even if you are or not an assassins creed fan.… Expand
