Assassin's Creed III is back in 4K

Assassin's Creed III is back in 4K

The third episode of the Assassin's Creed franchise may have been warmly welcomed in North America at launch, but we can't say it's our favorite one, quite the contrary in fact. At the time of its release, Blimblim pointed out the lack of charisma of its main character, but many people also regretted the poor architectural design of the urban areas, which was obviously a consequence of the decision to depict the US revolution. As a result, we can't say we are particularly excited by Assassin's Creed III Remastered, even less so as we have already witnessed quite a few bugs (NPCs walking backwards, completed mission objectives which still appear on screen after a game over while being told all we have to do is leave the area to finish the given assignment). As you'll see, the game has quite logically aged, though the Frontier still looks nice in the summer, but not only on the visual side. Playing ACIII again has made us realize how far Ubisoft has come with the series now and we prefer to advise you to play Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which indeed is a very good game.

That flat lighting really didn't age well

Most important question is: CAN you skip ending credits or not?

I miss the ambient occlusion of the original. The remaster lighting actually makes some scenes looks worse.

This is the question of the century, but let's be honest it's Ubisoft.

What's the problem with knowing thousands of people's names - including the security guards, the cleaners, the mail men, the people at the food court and every single person to ever work at Ubisoft!?!

We should all thank Ubisoft for giving us 30-60 minutes credits. It's a gift to bask in the glow of Ubisoft's games' credits. Specially when you can't skip it and there's additional scenes afterwards or you need to wait in order to save. Just glorious!

    der_ton @KORNdog's dreams video link: doesn't impress me at all, it's just ragdoll for cars. What would really impress me is deformation of the metal. Here, nothing gets bent, just gets movement impulse. meh. (55 minutes ago)

    jmd749 I was being a bit silly, I was thinking all along for some reason that Sucker Punch was making Days Gone despite knowing theyre working on Ghost of Tsushima. I would have never pre-ordered DG. lol (13 Hours ago)
