I have played four Assassin’s Creed games, Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, III, and Black Flag.  I have only finished two to completion.  From my experience, a lot of the fun in the Assassin’s Creed games lie in the first half as you explore the universe, grind for the best gear, and have fun killing people in a bunch of ways.  The second half normally falls apart as the present day stuff tries to be more relevant.  The present day stuff is the worst.

After being pretty disappointed with Assassin’s Creed III, I decided to give Black Flag a try after finding it on Amazon for a cheap deal.  All I have to say is that my expectations for this next installment in the series were met exactly how I thought they would be, which honestly isn’t that great of a thing.

As I finished a test on October 30th, I left the classroom defeated and broken.  In a rage of impulsiveness, I went to the closest Gamestop and purchased Assassin’s Creed 3 on the fly.  I had read a couple of reviews and I actually wasn’t expecting myself to buy this game.  At least until the Game of the Year Edition came out with all the DLC loaded.  But I was in such a foul mood after that test, I needed some immediate happiness.  So after purchasing the game and throwing possibly over 10-20 hours into it already [maybe more], it’s been quite an interesting road.

Assassin’s Creed 3 picks up where Assassin’s Creed: Revelations dropped off [which I didn’t get].  My familiarity with the franchise only extends to 2 of the four previously released: Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood.  The story is somewhat bloated between the present day  Assassin/Templar conflict and the historical setting that’s essentially simulated.  I have little care for the relation between the two and find myself loathing the present day stuff, so I’m going to focus this review on the historical setting chosen.

You play a Native American, Connor, during the peak of the American Revolution.  The colonies are in conflict and the British Royal Army continues its oppression.  Given the skills of a masterful assassin, it’s your job to turn the tides of the war making friends like Samuel Adams and George Washington along the way.
