    Assassin’s Creed III Remastered on the Nintendo Switch is impressive. It’s refined stealth tools and tactics mixed with additional gameplay design upgrades makes this a must-have for any AC fan dying to play something on the Switch that is guaranteed to occupy them for a long period of time.

    Assassin's Creed 3 is playfully still a good action adventure game that I can recommend to anyone who has not played it yet. Some gameplay elements and features may not be up-to-date anymore, but you'll get a satisfying and comprehensive package by today's standards.

    If you are looking for a stealth game of any sort, or are considering getting into Assassin’s Creed, this game is a must buy. Despite the few issues like unnoticeable graphical improvements and a slow beginning, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered features solid gameplay and a story underneath its surface that more than quantifies the investment. The sheer amount of things to do will lead to you investing hundreds of hours into this game.

    Assassin's Creed III Remastered on the Nintendo Switch is an adaptation that's not without its problems, especially when it comes to hit detection, framerate and unsolved bugs and technical issues. Despite all that, the combat and gameplay are enjoyable and competent and the game's shortcomings act more like nuisances to an experience that needs some polishing.

    Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered is a tricky one. The term ‘remastered’ feels a little disingenuous compared to the other consoles. Yet at the same time, the game at least in handheld runs as well as it did on last gen consoles. If you want to play Assassin’s Creed how it used to be on a handheld, you can’t go wrong with AC3, as long as you can accept it as it was a generation ago. If you didn’t like AC3 the first time then this time around likely won’t change your mind. If you haven’t played the earlier entries in the series, this would be the weirdest place to start.

    Both Assassin's Creed III and Liberation are titles worth investing time into. They contain tons of content that’s fun, and the time setting makes for some interesting scenarios, but the technical issues for this Switch port aren’t worth the trade off for being able to play on the go. These issues aren’t bad enough that the Remastered editions on the Switch are an unplayable mess, but it’s still a mess regardless.

    If you absolutely feel the need to relive Desmond’s disappointing conclusion, do so on other platforms. At least the letdown looks a bit nicer there.

    Excellent port of a good game. I played some AC3 back when it first released, but I never completed the game. I have always wished for a trueExcellent port of a good game. I played some AC3 back when it first released, but I never completed the game. I have always wished for a true console experience AC on the go and Ubisoft has finally delivered. Playing in handheld mode this game runs like magic. I get lost in the journey and forget I am playing on a mobile gaming device at times. Frame rates have been solid for me (as solid as you can expect an AC game to be). I literally cant believe how good this game looks and runs. Yes, the graphics are remastered as well, it's obvious lighting effects are better, character models are improved, along with environments (especially in cut-scenes). Of course the game does not look as good as the PS4 or Xbox One, but still it holds it's ground. If you are looking for the best mobile version of AC, this is it. This is the console experience on a handheld, man I love this generation. I highly reccomend this game to AC fans and to handheld players, I have not played in docked mode, but Im sure it will look just fine. I plan on picking up ACIV when it releases next month!(I have yet to play it for the first time!!!) Looking forward to all the AC goodness they give us on Switch. I give it a 10 because I believe the game deserves a Meta-user score of at least 8, considering the quality of the port. I would give the game itself an 8. Expand

    It's a great game, really nice and challenging story but after playing the Witcher 3 on the Switch i can't give 10 points. It was my first Assassin's Creed game and i don't regret the purchase.

    Assassin’s Creed 3 is still a solid game in the franchise and this remaster should’ve been better than the original but fails in certain areasAssassin’s Creed 3 is still a solid game in the franchise and this remaster should’ve been better than the original but fails in certain areas like sound mixing when you enter areas of the map or loading in the main game. The game also has many new bugs that I did not encounter in the original, while it has those things against it the game still looks good for a PS3 and Xbox 360 “Remaster”. Overall a good game that is weighed down by a few bugs that shouldn’t hinder your experience. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. While I have played AC 3 before on PS3, this remastered version is the first I have to own for myself and really have some time with.
    The prologue to the main game where we follow Haytham Kenway as he traverses the ocean to Boston, hunting down some ancient treasure, is truly the best part of the game. The characters, voice acting, initial world-building and lore of this world is excellent as well as mysterious, making the final revelation that he is, in fact, a Templar so much more shocking and well done. Although Haytham is the "bad guy", he was truly a marvellous character to follow on his quest, and deep down I wished that he was more fleshed-out in this story.
    Later, we fast-forward to Connor as a child in his village. There still remains this charming and epic sense to such a vast world and seeing Charles Lee once more, now the villain he truly is, felt almost heartbreaking after watching him as the supposed protagonist.
    Once Connor grows up, however, things start to deteriorate fast. Perhaps a bit subjectively, I cannot stand the adult Connor's voice actor. It sounds and feels both unnatural and cold, which might have been a reflection of his difficulty in integrating with the colonials, however it really makes the overall experience less appealing. More and more characters are introduced that help or fight Connor, but for every interesting character there are two more that I want to know nothing of (and commonly, it's the latter that they choose to develop more, to my dismay).
    Technically speaking, I have honestly had less problems in this game than with AC Unity, but it does not excuse AC 3 from the many flaws that inhabit it. Horses are more often than not an annoyance, most missions or side quests (especially the latter) feel either empty, unclear or bland (or worse, all three) and the frame rate, although mostly constant, did see quite a few places where it wasn't so and even when stable could not compare to the PS4 (which is less of a criticism since I acknowledge that a Switch is not a PS4).
    With all this in mind, there are still many good parts to be found. For one, having a full AC experience on a handheld is certainly a first and one that I thoroughly enjoy, with almost no noticeable changes between handheld and TV mode (for me). Using many of the unique tools and skills in the game in a variety of scenarios led to hours of fun poking around in the bushes or around corners. And even certain synchronization points delivered a beautiful scenery that made full use of the environment. I personally recommend getting it either on sale or from a friend, since it isn't worth a full price nowadays, but it remains a solid 7/10; a game that everyone should at least give a try.

    Also, there was AC Liberation bundled with it. I'm not even going to try to unpack that game here, but just know that Ubisoft absolutely ruined the first AC game with a female main character. I'd rate that separately at 4/10; not unplayable but it's really not worth your time.
