Assassin's Creed III Review

 

So this is the 5th (not the 3rd) Assassin's Creed game, and the 4th in as many years. Are Ubisoft killing off their own series with the yearly iteration [...]

Assassin’s Creed III" makes some important steps forwards, and some bizarre ones back. For all the greatness of the naval battles, forest free-running and fantastic art, the horrible UI, bad frame-rate, poor mission design make me just sigh that so...

Assassin’s Creed III Xbox 360 Review

 

Assassin's Creed II was such a huge leap in quality over the original game, not only bringing some much needed variation to the series, but also refining just about every area of the previous game that mattered, as well as introducing some fresh...

In spite of its problems, there’s still a reasonably strong game here, all the more so when the multiplayer facet is also taken into consideration, and it also manages to offer some ideas that are profoundly new enough to the franchise to make it a...

Assassin's Creed III Xbox 360 Review

 

With only a month left left to go, Desmond Miles and his team are fast running out of time to unravel the secrets of Those Who Came Before and put the brakes on the upcoming cataclysm that threatens to extinguish the bright lights of the human race....

A vast amount of content ; Excellent story and setting ; Ship combat is a highlight ; Tactical and rewarding multiplayer experience

The buggiest Assassin's Creed yet ; Connor Kenway is no Ezio Auditore ; Tutorial takes up hours

Assassin's Creed III Review

 

A resonant story, compelling exploration, and tense oceanic battles make Assassin's Creed III a rousing success.

Enthralling, thematically rich storytelling ; Tense and atmospheric sea battles ; It's a joy to watch your homestead develop ; Amazing attention to historical and visual details ; Lots of rewarding missions to undertake

Too many bugs and glitches ; Hunting mechanics go largely undeveloped ; Parkour and stealth inconsistencies

As you play that opening, it's hard not to wonder: when does the fun stuff come? In retrospect, however, the slow pace makes sense. This is the biggest game in the series by a notable margin, and once the beginning is put in context, you'll be glad for...

Assassin's Creed II: Bonfire of the Vanities

 

This add-on is a flawed but refreshing way to revisit Renaissance Italy.

Political and religious themes reminiscent of the original Assassin's Creed ; Small but beautiful new area to explore ; New targets to murder and new towers to climb

Major audio problems ; Some of the missions are more frustrating than fun

Assassin's Creed II: Bonfire Of The Vanities (Xbox 360) review

 

The final piece of the apple comes to Xbox Live...

We had high expectations for Bonfire Of The Vanities but sadly it just didn't quite deliver. The presentation feels a little rushed and some people may find the ending unsatisfying. While Bonfire Of The Vanities would've undoubtedly made a memorable...

Assassin's Creed II: Bonfire of the Vanities Review | Xbox 360

 

Burn, baby, burn.

As you'll recall if you've completed Assassin's Creed II, the main game inexplicably jumps from Memory Sequence 11 to 14 near the end, leaving players befuddled as to what happened in the intervening period. Step forward Mr DLC, offering you a chance...

Assassin's Creed II: Battle of Forli

 

This disappointing and ultra-contrived add-on doesn't improve Assassin's Creed II; it detracts from it.

The beautiful Caterina Sforza finally gets her due ; It's more Assassin's Creed II ; Some great new dialogue and voice acting

The "special" memory is pointless ; Messes with the main game's narrative pace ; Several annoying contrivances

Assassin's Creed II (Xbox 360, PS3) review

 

History has a funny habit of repeating itself. The original Assassin's Creed was a near perfect example of videogame marketing done absolutely right. An example of how the hype-machine can be used to take a fairly average action game and sell it to...

To say the least, Assassin's Creed II is a disappointment - not because it's bad, but because we were promised so much more. Everything Ubisoft claimed they were changing has stayed the same, and what little new touches they've included fail to impact...

Assassin's Creed II: Battle Of Forli (Xbox 360) review

 

Ezio's missing memories turn up – better late than never, right? Hmmm…

While it does feel a little wrong paying again for part of the same story, Assassin's Creed II is clearly an excellent game and the chance to play it some more shouldn't be one we complain about too much. Fair content on its own, though should be the...
