I'm sorry to say that I have not been able to find time to translate my review of Assassin's Creed III to English, so you guys will have to do with my conclusion and with our usual first 10 (or is 30) minutes video, plus a nice but *very* spoiler-ish video of some of Desmond's stuff.
I finished the main story of the game in a bit less than 20 hours, with a synchronisation level of 45 and dozens and dozens of secondary missions and things to find still waiting for me. It's simply impossible for me to list all there is to do in this game, and I can't wait to go back to them, especially since new ones appeared after the incredibly long credits roll! So despite the many small-ish technical issues, the lack of polish of quite a few elements of the game and a very one dimensional character I had a lot of fun playing this new Assassin's Creed title. I still think Brotherhood is the best of the series, mostly thanks to Ezio's character, but this episode is quite close.
Yea I can see them being more problematic on consoles.. it doesn't require much precision to run someone down with the saber either. (11 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Yes, a little bit OP though. If one charges at you with a horse, you're f'ed unless you can pull off a headshot. Especially on consoles they are hard to hit because of the 'controller' (1 Hour ago)
And ya gotta count horses 'cause horsing is one of the best things in the game. (4 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: yeah I've noticed the extra revive time. You shouldn't compare ww1 vehicles to modern warfare though as it's simply unfair. (4 Hours ago)
I'm sure people miss the progression from more recent games tho.. some people are really into that. It's undeniably barebones by comparison. (5 Hours ago)
Have you noticed that you can still be revived waaaay after the "bleed out" period? Still saves a death too.. hah. (5 Hours ago)
It's not just the lack of unlocks.. lack of stuff in general. Battlefield 2 still had more vehicle and weapon variety than BF1. Way more. (5 Hours ago)
