I accidental opened up a package address to my wife. Turned out to a Christmas present for me (Assassins Creed 3). She told me to just go ahead and play it now, but I said "no wrap it, I'll wait till Christmas".

So I know what I'll be doing during the Christmas holiday.

Nice, Pu! I'm thinking about getting it for PC, but haven't made a decision yet. It looks really good though.

Just finished Revelations (the previous AC game). Will definitely get it eventually, not sure when though.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Being sick has afforded me lots of one-on-one time with the PS3 as of late, I have been playing this game quite a bit. Here goes:[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]* Free-running has taken a huge upgrade simply in the arena that you no longer have to worry about your character jumping in the wrong direction. Secondly, it's no longer just buildings and clothesline you're able to free-run on, now you can climb trees and mountainsides as well. Also, many secret cubby holes in the free-run arena. It's nice to see someone with an open door or window so you can run through their home and out the backdoor (cut scene).[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]* The game has kept a lot of the same things that made it great in the past. Building up your own brotherhood of assassins, building your mansion, collecting feathers, etc., but it has added a lot more additional elements such as assassin contracts, wilderness challengers, treasure hunts, animal killing & skinning. Not to mention pimpin' like a pirate on your own boat! Cannons included![/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]* Combat mode is as complex as in the past, it is actually quite smooth. Some of the fighting cut scenes are superb. However, I will give this one a ding because I have engaged 30 enemies at once and I think I only got hit once.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]* Buying weapons and changing your outfit are now a one-time buy, no having to pay to switch weapons or outfits back to something you've already purchased in the past.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]* Watching Connor grow from a child to a man has been a real treat.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]* Looking at the American history in this game gives you a greater appreciation for it. Never thought I'd be at the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party or helping Paul Revere -- but I can vicariously through this game.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]* Lastly, I read an article recently that said something along the lines of "40 hours to just to play the storyline", not inclusive of all the bonus stuff. Once I beat the game itself, I intend on buying the additional Tyranny Of Washington chapters.[/i][/font]

[i]In short, take Assassin's Creed -- throw in some Skyrim, some Red Dead Redemption along with good ol' fashioned American bad-assery -- You've got ACIII.[/i]

[i]The only real knock on this game, I wish you could do more with Desmond outside of the Animus but I guess free-running and solving puzzles are just his thing.[/i]

You just need to go to the assassin's hideout. There will be 2 different rooms, 1 with armor stands, 1 with weapon stands. Just walk up to them, and you can change the armor or weapons. I guess you've been going back to the blacksmiths to change?

Now this is for previous AC's, I haven't played 3 yet. :)

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Oh no, I knew this as well. That comment was more leaning towards the buying of the outfits. Although, they are limited. So far, I've only seen three outfits available for purchase. However, your mansion does allow you to change into different outfits like normal. For instance, if you want to return Connor to his teenage years, just simply collect all the feathers and that will unlock that particular outfit.[/i][/font]

It's totally worth it. The graphics are insane, the gameplay is awesome. I'm a huge history buff so this game was absolutely perfect for me. Some parts are kinda difficult though. The multiplayer I didn't like at all, it just left a lot to be desired. Overall I'd give it a 8.5/9 out of 10.

The game looks fantastic and the story is pretty good. Apart from that, I just find myself (and this i s solely my opinion) not having a lot of "fun" with this game. The last game I played was AC II, missed Brotherhood and Revelations. To me, it seems like the combat is more twitchy and more difficult to control for me anyway. I'm supposed to be able to counter and execute certain enemies by pressing "circle" followed by "square" on PS3, yet every time I'm on battle with some British regulars (not even the Jagers and other bigger enemies" I counter and then throw enemies every time, it hets frustrating to me if I choose to actually fight a decent sized group of enemies instead of free running to safety.

The weapon and tool inventory is a hassle to me. Games like Red Dead, Mass Effect, and many many other have perfected a weapon, tool selection process on the main screen. Yet here, if I need my pistol instead of my bow or poison darts instead of animal bait, etc, you have to hold in the trigger, are taken to a menu screen and select from there before returning to the game. A minor gripe but sort of clunky to me.

I like Connor as a character, he really is pretty interesting, but his monotone voice actor kills me, again another small gripe.

A new aspect of the game that I will say was really fun, well done, and not very glitchy are the naval combat missions. A lot of fun to command your own ship and crew and blow up the hulls of some Templar schooners.

My biggest complaint with the game is all of the optional objectives for 100% synchronization. I understand that getting perfection out of the game shouldn't be easy and I'm not asking for that, but so many of these objectives are things I look at and say "Why would an assassin need to do this?" A great example is early in the game. Without spoiling, you are chasing a target through a forest on horseback (don't get me started on horses, since ACI, they have been by far the only truly bad and negative game aspec of the entire series). You're optional objective is to fire on three powder carts along the path during the chase. You cannot fire your pistol from a full gallop so must slow down from chasing your TARGET, fire on the cart, reload a flintlock pistol which accurately takes a while, and get back to full speed to continue your chase. By the time I get to the second cart to shoot it, I am already losing my target. Again, WHY would I realistically need to do such a thing in a game that prides itself on historical realism?

The game is currently glitchy as heck as well. Ubisoft is getting ready to release a massive patch (and by massive I mean fixing something like 100+ known glitches across single player and multiplayer) so I will pick the game back up and finish after I've updated. Its just unfortunate to me that they had to rush out a product that was incomplete because of corporate deadlines or trying to beat out Black Ops II or whatever their reasoning was.

In conclusion, I personally have had some control issues and smaller gripes, but the core game itself is a beautiful piece of work and with the patch, should run a lot more smoothly. But as it is as I type this, it is an incomplete game and if you are interested in it, I would highly recommend waiting until the update is available (which is being released either today or next Tuesday, cannot recall off of the top of my head) before jumping into it.

Same here. Not too far into it, but they did a good job on the Boston Massacre. Although I don't believe a Templar fired the first shot. :lol:

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]I will agree with you on both counts, the countering/throwing issue and the 'shooting of the gunpowder kegs on horseback'.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]However, I did notice that when I press "circle" multiple times to get the "timing" right on the counter, it automatically sees that as a "throw" command. So, I've kind of retrained my brain to stop tapping the circle and just holding it in. Then when I see the counter take effect, then I rob their weapon or counter attack.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]The riding on the barrels was absolutely ridiculous and replaying the mission is even more impossible. The target is already to a full sprint before you're able to even turn around. However, after 12 retries, I finally got it.[/i][/font]

Thanks for the countering tip, I'll have to train myself the same way once I get back to the playing. I jJust got the assassin game that I've really been waiting for Hitman: Absolution, so the conclusion to Connor's story is temporarily on the back burner lol

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]No problems. Since you seem to be the "ship" buff -- any tips on syncing on the Fort Phoenix mission? Seem to be handling the mission fine until I start getting bombarded by the cannons at the fort. Kind of hard to keep your ship damage limited to 50% when you've got to make three passes.[/i][/font]

I think the campaign is better than the multiplayer. This year the enemies actually fight against you unlike other ac games where they sit untill there death. multiplayer got old very fast. thats my opinion.

I think eventually (probably over Christmas break from school - almost a month and a half) I will take a break from Black Ops II, and come back to this game and replay it. I kind of rushed through it without doing many of the side missions, but I did like attacking the redcoats for no reason :) lol. I didn't trade or buy anything either, I literally just played the missions without upgrading stuff, or doing anything extra. I did collect some of the chests. What else is there to do, like what can you upgrade and what does it do? And stuff like that.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]A lot of the side missions will unlock new weapons, new missions and new outfits. I've been going at it very slowly, just because I have some weird of ADHD that only applies to video games. (LOL) But, as I complete a sequence, I go back through the Homestead to see what is new, then to the frontier, then to Boston and then to New York. Just getting all the new side missions done first.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]On an slightly unrelated note.. if it tells any of you anything -- I am now in the Top 1-Percentile for kills on this game. Granted there are about 30 Million+ people playing this game probably (not sure on the exact number), but the top 30,000 isn't a bad place to be... right?[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]I personally like going to New York and just engaging slews of Redcoats -- hit a level three awareness so I'm attacked on sight. At one point, Friday evening, I counted in the neighborhood of 60-bodies in a 4-way intersection. I made sure to loot them all before leaving. What can I say, I have no morals.[/i][/font]

LOL! I enjoy doing that too. I like jumping roof to roof and attacking the guards on those roofs. and then there just happens to be a group on Redcoats marching down the street...might as well air assassinate the officer and take on the rest.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Wow, neato. Just finished the game (100% Completion / Synchronization)... even a new "IOTA" mission. Running around trying to find little bits of data scattered throughout the map to unlock cheats.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]I will say I am very disappointed though. I found out that I still have some outfits missing in my wardrobe on the game, and the only way to get them was to pre-order a game at Target for one outfit... and to pre-order one at Amazon.com as well.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]And yes, you're hearing me correctly -- you'd have to pre-order THREE COPIES of the same game to unlock all of the outfits. There is no buying them through the PS Store (yet). What a total gyp.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Ah well, now I can focus on just running around killing large numbers of Redcoats to vent my frustrations.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]The ending sucked... so bad... Kind of makes you wonder where the game is headed now.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]A lot of the side missions will unlock new weapons, new missions and new outfits. I've been going at it very slowly, just because I have some weird of ADHD that only applies to video games. (LOL) But, as I complete a sequence, I go back through the Homestead to see what is new, then to the frontier, then to Boston and then to New York. Just getting all the new side missions done first.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]On an slightly unrelated note.. if it tells any of you anything -- I am now in the Top 1-Percentile for kills on this game. Granted there are about 30 Million+ people playing this game probably (not sure on the exact number), but the top 30,000 isn't a bad place to be... right?[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]I personally like going to New York and just engaging slews of Redcoats -- hit a level three awareness so I'm attacked on sight. At one point, Friday evening, I counted in the neighborhood of 60-bodies in a 4-way intersection. I made sure to loot them all before leaving. What can I say, I have no morals.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Last evening, my total kill count increased just over 700 in about 3 hours of game play. I LOVE NEW YORK!![/i][/font]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]I believe you are referring to the Benedict Arnold missions, they are free. You should have a code inside of your jewel case with a 12-digit code that will allow you to download them. Also, be sure to activate your U-Play account as well as there are some nice bonuses you get with that as well for U-Play points.

Also, if you pre-ordered your copy, you should have a third code in your jewel case as well to unlock the Mayan temple mission and Captain Kidd's Sawtooth sword.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Yes, you need to get the Benedict Arnold missions from the PS Store. Just click on the "Redeem Code" link and enter it into the number-field. ;)[/i][/font]
