    Italy's Xbox 360 Magazine - (10/10 - Masterpiece)

    “An absolute masterpiece to which the experience remains indispensable for any fan of video games and beyond, with a depth of gameplay and longevity unparalleled in the action scene, a game that will remain in the annals for a long time.”

    Italy’s Xbox 360 Magazine concluded by proclaiming that Assassin’s Creed III is one of the best games of this generation and handed out a perfect 10/10 score.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PS3gen.net - (19/20)

    Pros:

    • A scenario rich
    • A charismatic hero
    • Graphics breathtaking
    • Immense cards
    • The American Revolution
    • Historical figures


    Cons:

    • The combat system is too focused on blocking / attacks against


    In conclusion, if this year you need to buy one game, it would be Assassin's Creed III . Although it is best to start with the first episode and follow the plot of the series, this album offers a small retrospective way of introduction, which allows novices to learn the history and fans to get back into bath. In addition, the story takes about 40 hours for 100% completion, but less bitter of us will come to end by passing 15 to 20 h.

    How did it get an 8.5/10? The cons you listed far outweigh the pros. That is why I hate numbered reviews, because that is all people look at. I mean Ubisoft is throwing a lot of money around for this game so no one in their right mind will give it a bad score, but if you read what you wrote then this game sounds terrible.

    Lots of glitches and bugs and bad AI are two things that I do not accept from games. If I want a good story I will watch a movie or read a book (and from what I have played of AC the story sucks anyways).

    You mean the cons they listed. Those pros and cons are taken directly off the site on page 4.

    That'd be a pretty unprofessional thing to do. Surely if they had reviewed an unfinished copy they would have included that at some point in the review, like "there are various physics bugs, but they should be fixed by the time the game goes Gold."

    Also, @Mayus, I agree, scores are completely arbitrary, and are often not informed by the actual review. Those cons listed definitely don't warrant an 8.5.

    Still looking forward to this game though

    review copies don't have day 1 patches and such


    also it depends on what the glitches are, if they are game breaking it's bad. if it's skate 3/Bethesda quality glitches ill laugh my ass off and it will actually improve my gameplay experience.

    And like others have said, if there are bugs and the enemy AI isn't good during combat it shouldn't have gotten an 8.5 just because the game "looks and sounds purty "

    I'm sure people will. If they base their decision on this review alone then they're a fool. You're suppose to gather a bunch of reviews, and look at what they've said about the game to decide properly in my opinion.

    Since when does an 8.5/10 equate to "this game sucks." A score like that is extremely favorable.

    I was referring to previous posts by some of the other members about the OP in regards to the cons in the review.

    the combat has always been terrible in assassins creed when it involves close combat anyway.

    it's just a giant counter attack fest and it was never fixed in any of the AC games.

    There's a 4.5GB install that is not optional which should primarily fix performance of the game and loading times. Additionally, Ubisoft has released the first patch for the game, which is available when the game starts to download. What does the small 15MB update is not known.
