"Overall, an experience that is fun and fundamental!" —
Indeed there are many distracting in "Assassin's Creed 3," but they aren't essential in ruining the core game. Trophy-hounds will enjoy scouring the wild frontier for accomplishments that add to one's reputation both on-and-offline. Completists will celebrate all the extra goodies they have with the Homestead and Naval side missions. They help build up the story within all the explosiveness of the core game.
The level of excitement held for this game was justly warranted. Gamers are treated to an illusory living world, full of life (that will attack you!), a story hidden beneath a history lesson and a clear definition that anyone can be a hero when put to the test. Only in "Assassin's Creed 3," it actually looks harder than it sounds to do. Not shying away from the times, this game is full of meat and potatoes backed by thrilling sequences where you're showing off your specially honed skills.
There will be moments where the game will try your patience, but its cheeky take on the adventures of our Founding Fathers is just the kind of political recess anyone would find delightful.
Don't take our word for it, press play on the trailer and see for yourself. "Assassin's Creed 3" is out now and available for the Xbox 360, PS3, Microsoft Windows and Wii-U.
