Classic Game Room reviews ASSASSIN'S CREED III from Ubisoft for PS3 (also available for Xbox 360 and PC). The "New World" is home to this adventure featuring Connor and lots of Redcoats waiting to be wacked and throw into the harbor! Is it a movie, is it a video game? Assassin's Creed III is amazing but one gets the feeling that focus was lost midway through production. Beautiful cinematic landscapes surround the player and impress while riveting music roars through the speakers but one wonders how much attention was put towards gameplay which seems repetitive and dull compared to Assassin's Creed II. Every building is climbable, every enemy is stupid and the plot moves at a snail's pace but there's still something incredible about the landscape that Ubisoft creates for Assassin's Creed 3. Fans of the serious may genuinely enjoy it and love every second spent tearing through the woods or old-school Boston, or they may be bored out of their mind waiting for something... anything... to happen. It's the Once Upon a Time in America of video games. A bit of a back handed compliment, but you need to see that movie to really get the point. In any event, AC3 is impressive and deserves praise for its merits, but if you're looking for a fast paced action game, this isn't it. Assassin's Creed 3 has an amazing soundtrack by videogame composer, Lorne Balfe. In conclusion CGR thinks that the music, visuals and production value surpass the game play in AC3, except for the boat scenes! Naval battles rock!
