Assassin’s Creed 3 review promotes fulfillment

By Daniel Chubb - Oct 30, 2012

You could read the very first Assassin’s Creed 3 review and see that the game seems to be almost perfect, but this won’t change the fact that the game is not for everyone, especially when it comes to Navel battles and other gameplay found within the latest incarnation. Let’s take a look at what’s said to be the first Assassin’s Creed 3 review score for the Xbox 360 platform, and also a couple of reviews that have surfaced within the last 24 hours.

Assassin’s Creed 3 has a release date of OCT 31, tomorrow in the UK/Europe, and will launch today in the US. This means the reviews will start to appear in massive numbers over the next 24 hours, but if you’re really keen you can read and watch some insight today.

Over the weekend we found some Assassin’s Creed 3 gameplay that covered almost the whole game over many hours, which you can see here if you don’t mind a few spoilers. This weekend also saw the first review score arrive in this article, which didn’t review Assassin’s Creed 3 but rather quoted the 10/10 score from the Xbox Magazine in Italy. This review has been said to sing and dance about the game by calling it a “masterpiece“.

We have heard about some disappointment with Assassin’s Creed 3 although these bugs are likely to be fixed with a day one patch, and other reviews question if the 40 hour playtime is enough? Reactions to a question like this show that the majority of gamers feel this is enough playtime, especially considering the gameplay and story will impress most fans. Another review published today also mentions a couple of bugs, but states that they’re “absolutely nothing” after taking the size of Assassin’s Creed 3 into consideration.

Are you purchasing Assassin’s Creed 3, and if you’ve been hands-on what do you think? We’d also love to know how much value you give reviews and would it stop you at least renting the game? We had been hands-on with this game at a recent event in London, and this demo included some Navel battles that we enjoyed, but it is fair to say this won’t be for everyone.

    Got it last night and played about 2 hours and it’s the best one let, love the birtish style to it and awesome sea gameplay and great timing as I’m off sick from work so I’m going to be hooked! The last two games I was not wowed about I rated ac2 the best game but this a masterpiece!!!!!!

    Sorry, but an AC game isnt finished until you get the 100% sync and a platinum trophy.
    This took me 100+ hours on AC 2 and the same for Brotherhood.
    40 hours? Yeah, if you rush it. Collect everything and get 100% in 40 hours on a game as big as Skyrim if you put the maps together? Ahaha, don’t make me laugh.
    Getting mine tomorrow from Sainsbury’s at 8am when they open.
    Cannot wait!

  • I’m in the UK and had it on pre order, received it yesterday lunchtime and played it for about 12 hours, the game it fantastic!

    I’m yet to find the fluid movement to lead me to multi kills but I am now full assassin Connor 🙂 Had a couple of naval battes and they are really fun and the ability to pimp your ship when you have more cash is a cool addition.

    This game is going to take a lot of my time 🙂

  • pre ordered the 500 gb bundle for ps3 cant wait!!

    Navel battles? Battles with belly buttons? LOL. In all seriousness, I’m about 25% of the way in and it’s brilliant so far!

    i got it at midnight, played for about 3 hrs. its pretty cool. im sure it will get better. the acting is really good.. but theres really no threat from guns, even when you get hit multiple times..i shouldve been dead at least 3 times from a gaming perspective. kinda takes away the thrill..

  • I also pre-ordered this in April, (for free), though I regret not waiting longer to pre-order the special edition for a mere £5 extra. Will be getting my copy on Thursday from GAME. Hopefully nothing goes wrong: ie they don’t run out of copies – or the delay that I read about in the newspaper about international shipping from the US, (because of problems with hurricane Sandy).
    Hopefully, the multiplayer feature will be just as addictive as Revelations. (haven’t stopped playing it)!
