    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.

    The story and trademark mix of historical facts with fictitious characters are one of the best in series history. But mechanically you feel the age of the original throughout.

I have had this game on almost every system, and no it doesn’t look best here but it looks great and plays well plus having it on the go makes this without question my favorite way to enjoy this fantastic title. Imagine how disheartened I was to come online and see all the poor reviews (much like every other switch port recently). Do you guys really expect it to keep up with the big consoles? You are basically screaming to developers, “don’t even try open world games on the switch”. As a developer myself, it’s obvious love went into this port, and to be received this way, I can tell you, I would NEVER publish a triple A port on this platform as the user base is never satisfied. Better off sticking to 2D platformers and casual games.

    All that said, this is a great port (not without issues), and for something this engaging on the go, you won’t find better anywhere else. I suggest you enjoy it too because publishers are about done throwing games this vast at the system because they always go entirely un appreciated.

    Rubbish! They called this "remastered", but for real this is original 2012 game.

    This is a lazy port of a great game. There is nothing 'remastered about this port. It even runs worse than the wii u version. A real shame!
