"breath taking"
5 stars"

Review by Ethan on 3rd November, 2012

from the gorgeous visuals to the addictive combat and compelling story and characters. I Highly recommend this game. A Game which will satisfy and entertain you for hours on end. A few technical glitches here and there but it does not effect gameplay one bit

"Good Game, but not a fantastic ending to the trilogy"
4 stars"

Review by David on 11th November, 2012

The game on it's own is good, the gameplay is improved and the free running is essentially the same fun assassin's creed parkour. The multiplayer is actually really great in this and this was a surprise to me as it only took an hour before I was completely done with the multiplayer modes in previous AC games. The game is incredibly buggy however nothing that should stop you from getting the game if you want it and I am sure these bugs will be fixed soon enough.

The biggest negatives with this game though is that it has a ridiculously slow start, as the game does not pick up until you are at sequence 6 which is halfway through the game and about 5 / 6 hours into it. The missions are not very interesting and more or less are very basic aside from the odd mission that stands out, but it is quite repetitive and also shorter then previous assassin's creed games. The biggest problem, by far, which will effect AC fans the most is that the ‘conclusion’ to the trilogy is incredibly poor. This game was supposed to be the final in the trilogy of Desmond's story, however the ending is not really an ending, it is poorly written and just sets up another Assassin's creed game and it feels like they just did it because they didn't want to lose a series that makes so much money.

However other then that the story is okay, and at least mildly interesting, but probably won't blow you away, the cities you visit in the game aren't as cool as those in Italy in previous games, and Connor (the new assassin) isn't quite as impressive as Ezio was, although he has some entertaining weapons such as the rope dart. The frontier (area with trees outside of the cities) is pretty interesting and there is a lot to do in this game, a myriad of side missions and collectables that will provide a fair few extra hours to the game after you finish the story.

"Game of the year!"
5 stars"

Review by Jarrhyd on 15th November, 2012

Most definitely one of the best games of the year. The story line and online multi-player is one of the best yet. Great game. #1 of the year

3 stars"

Review by Gareth on 6th April, 2015

Many, many hours spent playing this, well worth the coin I paid and an awesome game! A must play if you are making your way through the Assassin's series of games. Now to get Black Flag!

"Best game of out the 6 games that had been released"
4 stars"

Review by Lewlew12 on 22nd September, 2014

This is the greatest assassins creed game I have ever play throughout my entire life and say it would be the best one out of the 6 games
