1 out of 5 eggsHORRIBLE

Pros: The story (and I haven't gotten to the end quite yet) is quite engrossing.

Cons: The controls. They are awful. You cling to stuff when there's no reason, you jump on stones/fences and get detected, the list goes on. Someone did a bad job of coding the controls for the game, and they should suffer. It would have been good if it weren't as if my character had suction cups on his hands and knees, grabbing things all over the place when I'm trying to stay undetected.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat game...bad ending

Pros: The game is very fun. It adds to previous installations of AC and makes them better. The PC version is of course ahead of the curve graphically. I got the game for 38 bucks on release.

Cons: The ending is convoluted and terrible. You can tell they threw some random events together just to continue the series.

Other Thoughts: The game is still worth getting but the ending really disappointed me. Don't want to spoil.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall good, but still frustrating control

Pros: New missions, naval missions and hunting is fun.

Difficulty has increased (which is good, it's almost impossible to die in the previous ones due to health kits), you need to plan ahead before you go rambo.

Overall a great experience and lots of hours of playing time.

Cons: Control is really frustrating.

1. The control is meant for console and they didn't really improve it for PC at all. The inventory menu is the worst, a completely mess and tedious to browse through. Rest are not any better, mouse doesn't work half the time and those buttons are tiny.

2. Lock picking is a joke, either remove it or change it to something that actually makes sense.

3. Lack of conversations in some side missions. You just hit E to activate the mission and you see some new icons showing up on the map, and the person who gives you the side quest don't utter a single word about it.

4. Jumping/climbing direction still needs improving, especially when you almost reach the top of the view points. Instead of climbing to the last branch / tip of the church, the character decides to jump off 300 feet and fall to his death.

1 out of 5 eggsTypical Horrible Console Port

Pros: Looks Nice. Runs well with no frame rate problems.

Cons: Typical junky console port. You'd think that they would do better with a game this big. Obviously made for a controller with no though put into controlling with mouse/keyboard. Has the typical arrogant game design team fault: No saving. We're not all 15 with no lives, let me save so I can go to work or deal with kids. That's really the deal breaker. Try something that doesn't work out? Back to the beginning of the mission with you! Lose an hour of gameplay.
Fighting seems to be just mash the buttons and the character will do stuff at random.

Other Thoughts: Too much console-ness in this one for me. Maybe this is what the kids like these days. I guess I'll stick to Skyrim, Fallout and Far Cry like games. I even really liked Dishonored.
At least it was free with my new video card!

1 out of 5 eggsCan't get it to run, Ubisoft Customer support is useless.

Pros: Great graphics, as long as the game runs.

Cons: I only gave this game a 1/5 because 0/5 is not an option. Game runs for no longer than 5 minutes at a time before bugging out. Bugging out defined as my desktop overlays the game and all I get is sound. When running Task Manager, the game is reported as "Not Responding". I have been trying to get Ubisoft to do something about this since I got the game on 11/28, and here I am just before Christmas with it still non-funtioning. Good thing I didn't buy this for anyone other than myself.

There is no real reason for this me hitting this bug. I get it no matter what graphic settings I apply (lowest or highest). My rig should blow this game away:

Intel Core i7 930 @ 2.8Ghz
12GB DDR3 1600
EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked Edition.

Other Thoughts: Ubisoft Customer Support is the biggest joke I've ever encountered. I assured them I was up to date on my drivers, both sound and graphics, and then they tried to close my ticket on me. I got them to open it again, but I never actually know what my status is really set to on their system, and the rep tries to tell me that "your graphics card appears modified, please reset it to factory settings and try it again" when I explained to them already that my card IS at factory settings. I then explained to him how that shouldn't matter anyway unless my card was over-heating (never went above 55C). Then he tried to close my ticket again, got him to re-open it again, and then he tells me to update my graphics again. I feel shoved to the side with this issue and Ubisoft won't take it seriously because I already bought the game. When I asked them about a refund, they deferred it to being NewEgg's problem. I will never purchase a Ubisoft game again.

Pros: Only Pro is the graphics why the 2

Cons: Everything the price all 3 games are hard to play no save you make a mistake back to the start.Its a pointless game you really have no controll when playing you have to do what the developer of the game says.

Other Thoughts: I have arthritis this game is one of the hardest to play with no save.Why the Documentary's the game sucks with no save very easy to make a mistake then you go all the way back to the start again.I spent several hours trying to finish a mission never did gave up on the game.My hands hurt so much.. Developers your stupid.

4 out of 5 eggsAssassin's Creed III is a Killer

Pros: Wonderful graphics - in my Rig, an AMD Radeon 7970, I've set everything in the game to its highest settings, and not a flicker or stutter; everything runs nice and smooth, shadows are perfectly visible, follow people, and are shown on the ground when Nathan is up on the rooftops. When you go close up on buildings, trees, dogs, people, nothing is grainy, but clear and in focus - just as in real life.

I've not gone far into this game, just two sequences, (hey, I'm a old beginner), and the detail these software engineers placed into this game is truly amazing. When walking through the streets of Boston, take off on a stroll to look around, to really look around and see what they created. Off in a town square you'll see a man playing with his dog, you'll see town orphans harassing folks for money, you'll see birds flying around, you'll see chickens scratching at the ground, people painting fences, houses, street vendors, hawkers, everything that you would, or imagine you'd see during the 1770's period in Boston.

During the game play you also interact with a lot of people, not just the one's your supposed to interact with, but many others on the sidelines. For example, those orphans might get in your way and slow you down, you might crash into people when you walk fast, they'll yell and curse at you, and you'll be able to pickpocket folks - dead ones - and one's on the streets.

Game controls took me awhile to get used to, (a little cheat sheet helped), I'm beginning to get the hang of it, still sometimes when I think I understand it, the game's software seems to take control of the battle and I can't do anything but watch (that's a bit odd).

As for other pros, I'll be able to add more once I finish more sequences. For now, just know that the graphics are absolutely top notch - blew me from here to Boston 1770 and back.

Cons: Cons - well, there are a few. Here's one of which I have many: "Desynchronizations"

Hey, I'm a beginner, but I tend to make a lot of miniscule mistakes - like not performing certain missions to their exacting specifications. Yes, there are many of these - missions that you have to perform in a very exact sequence, timing down perfect, down to the seconds in some situations, or you get desynchronized.

You might get 10% through the mission, get desynchronized, and have to start once again. The next time you may get 25% through, then have to start that mission over. Next time 40%, then 50%, and so on. At least your progressing, at least your getting nearer to the end. Or so you think...remember you have to perform these to their exacting specs. It is difficult, it is a pain in the toucas, it is frustrating, and missions like this show up more often than not.

The only good thing: Once you do finish this type of mission, you finish it for good. You'll never Restart from before this section of the game.

There are some Graphics errors - oh, not stuttering or flickering, but how the engineers built the screen in the first place. For example, I was the character Nathan, strolling around the back alleys of Boston, just spying out the area. Behind one building there's a man hammering something onto one side of a wooden fence. But, if you're on the other side, you can see bluish grey arm materializing partway on this side of the fence as the man hammers away on the other side. Kind of freaky, and a mistake in the way the screen is drawn. (I'm sure someone's reported it as a glitch by now).

Another Con, at least for me, is another goal in the beginning is catching Ben Franklin's Almanac Pages. They're scattered around Boston. But every time I ran after one, the page led into a sea of Redcoats, who immediately attacked me Usually it ended up being 20 of them against me. I did what I could, then I fled, using all the tricks they said to use. Hiding was no good, I was followed too closely. I climbed buildings, ran over rooftops, hid against chimneys and always was followed. I killed the followers, if it was only one or two that worked, sometimes not; I had to prepare to flee once again. It was tiresome and never ended well.

Though catching Ben's pages was a mission in itself, this User decided not to do so. I figure I'll do it next time, when I play it the second time perhaps. Right now, I just want to stay alive, and if that means skipping over bits and pieces, I certainly will!

Other cons will have to wait - I've just started the game, and it will take me awhile to play this one.

Other Thoughts: This is the first time I've been back into gaming since the early 1990's, and I'm blown away with the many advances the Software Designers and Engineers have been able to take - with Processor and Graphics capabilities.

For me, I don't like to rush through games; I prefer to explore, and enjoy, what the engineers and designers created. So, when I play - I look around, I take strolls, I do everything - until I am forced to participate in a mission.

This game is truly breathtaking. If you have a high-end rig, with a powerful Video card, you'll have no problem with viewing the gorgeous graphics in this latest installment of the Assassin's creed series.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * Combat system was fun to use, although I did run into difficulty using enemies as human shields. It would not always work as it should which was incredibly frustrating.
* Town graphics / rendering were upgraded from previous versions
* It's Assassin's Creed
* Connor is "the man" when the combat system is working properly and that is fun to see and do.
* Desmond's missions. Awesome. Finally got to see him in live action on missions which was great.
* Weather. The added rain affects were awesome. Wish these could've existed in Italy with some of those scenes -- would've looked great.
* Climbing animation was significantly upgraded which was great!
* They developed the game in DX11 for the PC. Very happy to see them utilize the vastly superior PC hardware instead of just direct-porting the inferior console version to PC as they have in the past. I have played the game on XBOX as well, and it is no comparison. To use a common car comparison -- playing this game on the XBOX compared to the PC is like driving a Ford Taurus (XBOX) compared to a Corvette (PC).
* "Tomb Missions". These are now replaced with what are called "Captain Kidd" missions. It is basically a mystery you are trying to solve which is actually pretty cool. You get some great visuals in these missions that look AWESOME on the PC in DX11.
* Naval Missions. As part of your Assassin career, you also Captain "The Aquila", a warship you revive during the game and go out and perform various tasks (rescues, escorts, attacks, etc.). These missions are pretty fun.

Cons: * Music. The Music is a significant downgrade from games like AC2 / ACB. The magic the music created in those games is non-existent in this one.
* Story. Very scattered and inconsistent story plot. Also the story overall was way too....sad. At every turn you're being betrayed, having family members / friends killed or being forced to kill them yourself. Bad ending both for Connor and for Desmond. Very anti-climactic. I hate the direction they are going with the series as far as the storyline. Also the way the start of each sequence forces you into a cutscene absolutely kills the chronology of the side missions and when they should be completed. Need a far better tie-in. Should have had the primary sequences just be placed on the map so you could start the next sequence when ready as far as the main storyline and have a chance to complete side missions before seeing an urgent cut scene that made you feel like you had to rush off to finish the primary story.
* Connor's personality. They made him into a robot. He has very little emotional development throughout the game. Some people say he seems "dumb". I don't want to say that, but he definitely has no personality, making it tough to get attached to him the way we did with Ezio.
* Hunting / Frontier: Waste of development time. Added nothing in my opinion.
* Mission Design. There were a number of missions that were just AWFUL as far as how they were designed. You had to perform certain tasks in a very precise manner or you would desynchronize. The other AC games provided freedom in how you wanted to complete a mission, and that's something this game missed in many instances.
* Side Quests. I miss the Courtesan, Thief, and Assassination contracts from previous games. This game had pathetic Assassination contracts (I mean really, there is literally zero backstory to them to tie in to the game), and the Liberation missions were only mediocre at best.
* Limited relationships. Connor is 27 by the time the game ends and has no female counterpart. This sort of ties in to the "robot" reference I made before. No guy is 27 and has zero romantic interest. Another part of the Ezio storyline that was badly missed here.
* The ending. Both Desmond & Connor's endings are so anticlimactic. As a Desmond fan, I *hate* how they have chosen to "close" his storyline. I don't want to give away the specifics, so I'll leave it at that. Connor's ending is also very open-ended, and so far, I'm just not attached to him at all as a character -- I am really hoping they can do a better job of developing his personality in future games, because he doesn't have one currently.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm pretty disappointed with the game. Given how much it was super-hyped leading up to its release, it's been pretty mixed in terms of overall reception from the fanbase. AC is an absolutely epic game series. In 30 years of gaming, it is probably #1 or #2 on my list of best game-series. I really hope the crew that did AC2 and ACB are recalled to work on future games because those guys and gals just "got it" and knew how to make a magical game. Really hoping we head to France next for the French Revolution. The backstory has been created with Lafayette meeting Connor.

You might be wondering why I gave it 2/5 eggs since I still had a good list of pros. The ending of the game is so epically bad (Desmond specifically) along with how bad the storyline flows that it's just not a good game. There are also numerous bugs in the game that should have easily been fixed before release. My hope is that the next game (the DLC is on its way, maybe it will help also) will reinvigorate the series without destroying everything that it has been able to stand for thus far because this series is awesome overall.

Performance -- I've read that ATI / AMD video cards are having performance problems with the game currently. Given that I'm running a GTX 680 and NVidia released a beta driver a few days before AC3's release, I have had flawless game performance, so for you ATI guys, I'm hopeful they will release a hotfix / beta driver for you shortly so you can play the game. Performance for me was great though -- 1920x1200 with every setting maxed out with the exception of antialiasing, which I dialed down a bit.

Gaming Rig:
Vista 64-bit
ASRock 990FX Extreme4
16GB DDR3
Phenom II 955

Pros: -I love the assassins creed series
and this is my first ac title on pc and its supposed to be
somewhat better than the console version

Cons: this game has major frame rate issues even if you have a high end setup...ubisoft needs to release a patch for this problem. Im having trouble playing with 15fps roaming around boston. Even with 2x7870's it shouldnt even be this bad.

Other Thoughts: Ill be waiting for a patch..to continue the campaign.
