    Overall, this remaster puts a nice coat of paint on a great experience and I'd recommend everyone, especially those who weren't so hot on it at release, give it a try to see how it's held up.

    Assassin's Creed III Remastered pays tribute to the 2012 game and gives us its best version. This is the best opportunity to play one of the most misunderstood games of recent years and enjoy the incredible work of Ubisoft Barcelona in a great remastering that gives the game fresh graphics.

    Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered offers some good upgrades, with smoother visuals and some UI fixes. If the overall experience feels dated at time, it still is a solid experience.

    A classic comes to Xbox One in the form of remaster, but it doesn't fix bugs and the optimization can be improved.

    Assassin's Creed III Remastered brings noticeable improvements in visuals and overall environment quality to AC 3 and Liberation, especially for owners of an Xbox One X and an HDR-capable TV. The overall experience is still dragged down by some of the original games shortcomings, like a repetitive mission structure, but it might be a worthwhile dive in the past for Assassin's Creed fans.

    Assassin’s Creed III Remastered on Xbox One is a good game which is fun to play. The graphics may be significantly improved but this is essentially the same as it was seven years ago, albeit now up against much stronger competition. If you’ve never played it before, at £29.99, with all the DLC, it’s worth a look.

    AC III hasn’t aged very well, and this remasters improves some things but ruins some others. It’s a great addition if you own AC Odyssey’s season pass, but there aren't many reasons to go back to it.

    Can't help but feel most of these reviews are just pre-existing hate for the game, rather than whether it objectively improved in terms of visuals and mechanics (... can't change the preexisting shorting comings of story, character, .. etc in a remaster of game that was never well received). While it hardly stands among the best remasters, its no where near as objectively worsening the game (... than it already did to itself in its original release) like the Ezio Collections (my gosh... that one NPC face from hell in the first opening scene with ezio and that gang, you all know what I'm talking about), but it did enhance the visuals noticeably and made some minor tweaks to gameplay: my god, the expansion in the crafting system definitely a welcome addition. Then little subtle tweaks to certain stealth and combat mechanics that made it better.
    Nothing groundbreaking, and doesn't change it from being the fundamentally mediocre game it was (Black Flag was the one to properly implement that innovative changes in the series more properly), but nevertheless, visually improved and a mildly/moderately smoother gameplay

    .... otherwise its still one of (if not) the weakest games in the series....and we all know we're only tempted to go back to AC3 for the brutally satisfying Tomahawk combat lol.
    Youre better off replaying Black Flag, if any AC's after Ezio (where the series went down hill after, Black Flag aside)

Not completely, but I must confess that I'm a little disappointed.

    The story is mostly great throughout, but the first 5 hours of this game were a disappointing experience. I thought I fell into a plain scam. But as I have moved through this game it got more enjoyable. The naval missions were quite fun and the side missions were better than I expected.

    The whole trading system and Homestead business are ambiguous and I did not use them at all. Even the weapons were complicated.

    Unacceptable buggy mess. I would say Ubi should give people their money back but most likely the people playing it got it free with OdysseyUnacceptable buggy mess. I would say Ubi should give people their money back but most likely the people playing it got it free with Odyssey SP. This game isn't worth free.

    Playing this reminds me of how bad the original's story was, the horrifically designed, luck based optional objectives and ridiculous climbing mechanism. Looking past all that this game is still even worse. A remaster always includes a graphics upgrade and this game does have better graphics. I can tell because many times I got stuck in the scenery to the point where the only option was to restart. My enemies did as well. On more than one occasion I couldn't complete a mission because my target was inside a wall or someplace I couldn't get to. It is especially bad when it has to zoom in a while like when you're climbing.

    With the remaster they also mentioned making some modern adjustments but I didn't notice anything new that wasn't broken. Missions, especially homestead, tend to not be removed from the screen when they are completed. On countless occasions I had a homestead mission objective on the screen that I completed and a completely unrelated mission's objectives added below it. Climbing is buggy as well. Many times I would climb to a point and then hit an invisible wall. Backing back down a little and moving up again resolved it in most cases but when you're in a hurry it was game breaking.

    On top of this the QTEs don't register always. In several combat encounters it wouldn't put me into combat mode so I just stood there while people attacked me. This also happened in a legendary animal quest. The only way to recovery was to exit out.

    The notifications (for convoy attacks and optional objectives) also seems buggy. In almost all cases I got the message that my convoy had been destroyed yet I never got the message it was being attacked.

    Lastly the game crashes frequently when there is a lot going on, such as the big battles. Freezing game with the sound playing forces a restart from the last checkpoint. Given the optional objectives that require luck over skill this is just plain infuriating.

    In summary, same iffy game story/mechanisms with more game-breaking bugs and graphical issues.

    It is sad when a remastered game plays and looks WAY and i emphasize WAY worse than the original game. Where do I even begin. All of the cutIt is sad when a remastered game plays and looks WAY and i emphasize WAY worse than the original game. Where do I even begin. All of the cut scenes look like something fresh out of a PS2 game, the game is full of new glitches and bugs on top of the ones from the original game that Ubisoft didn't even bother to look into when remastering their game, and the games frame rate runs at almost the exact same as the original game. I was honestly very excited for this remaster because I was one of the few people that actually loved the 3rd entry to the Assassin's Creed series and I pre-ordered this game as soon as i could. But honestly after wasting 15+ hours just hoping that the remastered version of one of my favorite games would get better, I have simply come to the conclusion that this was a quick money scam by Ubisoft to try and get some suckers (myself included) to spend a buck on a game they used to love. If you're thinking about buying this game and haven't played it yet, don't bother. You will receive a lot more of a smooth playing and more visually pleasing experience by just playing the original version of this game on PS3 or Xbox 360. This "remaster" is an absolute joke. Expand

    The game is only colored from blue to yellow
    It's not a remaster, it's a scam
    This game is not worth 40$
    According to Ubisoft's new policies, the company is trying to scam users instead of providing services.
