"The glitches and bugs are enough to make Benjamin Franklin itch." —
While synchronized within the game for 20% of its playtime we experienced a wide and interesting array of bugs throughout "Assassin's Creed 3". From the picture that you can see for yourself, above, to Redcoats walking on water, the game had some skitchy moments that interrupted gameplay, distracted from the story and made the experience frustrating.
Also apparent in "Assassin's Creed 3" is a visible lack of focus that slows down the game's momentum. Poorly conceived story missions and side quests undermine the overall plot. In one main mission, Connor is tasked with having to plant explosions while remaining hidden from the nefarious Redcoats — a simple thing, right? No. While maybe Solid Snake can walk past guards in pure stealth, Connor easily gets caught on the pier where he must place his explosives. The mission doesn't exactly make use of Connor's finely honed assassin skills.
A side quest even had you saving the life of a would-be explorer from falling over a waterfall. The level was designed to make the chase thrilling and exciting for gamers, yet it came off as arduous and uninspired. While these don't truly effect the overall experience of playing "Assassin's Creed 3," these are a few of the 'D'Oh!' moments that make you shake your fist in anger.
