If history books were as interesting and as engaging as Assassin’s Creed 3 is in presenting a lifelike section of American history, then I would’ve spent more time reading them when I was younger. As soon as you step into the shoes of the brand new protagonist Connor, Assassin’s Creed 3 presents you with a believable simulation of life and times during pre-and-post Civil War America.
A big part of this is due to the game’s brand-new engine, the AnvilNext, which has the ability to produce some, if not the best visuals of this console generation. Add to that an engrossing story, literally thousands of things to do, as well as the addition of Naval warfare missions, and you’ve got yourself one of the best games of the year. It’s not perfect mind you, but you would be crazy to miss out on the title that rejuvenates the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
