    dmullig2's Assassins Creed III (360)

    [November 3, 2012 12:25:15 AM]
    Today, I picked up Assassinís Creed III. I had tried out all of the previous games before, but none of them really appealed to me all that much. The first Assassinís Creed was a little disjointed, still trying to figure out what kind of game it wanted to be. The second game was a lot better, with a cooler story and better game mechanics. After that, the franchise sort of petered out. No real innovation with these semi-sequels meant that the series started to get stagnant and boring. However with this new game, something was different. It had just enough new ideas to spark my interest in the series again.

    The first big difference between Assassinís Creed III and the other games before it is the narrative. The last few games have centered on an Italian guy who, at first was interesting, but eventually became dull with multiple games. This new game starts off with new characters and a different setting all together, The American Revolution. While this game has always been centered on historical time periods and figures, this game seems to be more interesting, probably because of its ďclose to homeĒ setting. With this new setting and new character, it really stands out among past games in the franchise.

    While Assassins Creed III has a new setting and character, most of the general gameplay still remains intact. The player is still using parkour to get through the map. The objectives are still basically the same, with the main goal to assassinate key members in the Templar faction. However, everything feels a little bit faster. The main character Connor handles himself a lot better than the previous protagonists, and in this case, makes combat feel faster. This is mostly due to the fact that kills are easily streamlined, with the addition of a dual weapon fighting style. In all though, the game remains relatively the same, which can be a detriment to the game, as it often gets repetitive. However, this game is way better than itís predecessors, mostly due to its new narrative setting.
