Assassin's Creed 3 hands-on: three hours as a mass-murdering

Your comments on our articles.

A colossal final look at the game before our review

Hype fatigue affects millions of gamers every year. Symptoms include negative forum comments, thumbing down of positive forum comments, and in extreme cases the victim can go as far as to cancel their pre-order. How Assassin's Creed III has avoided that state of jaded whatever is a miracle. Perhaps it was the peculiar controversies that kept us interested. "A game by a French publisher, in which you kill British people?" we sputtered into our crumpets. "We'll remember that the next time your Maginot Line fails to keep out the Hun."... read more

Assassin's Creed 3 hands-on: three hours as a mass-murdering

After you get killed, a message tells you what you were doing that caught your assailant's eye. Running across rooftops, using a special power, or carrying out a visible kill - it's extremely helpful, and complements the slow-cooker atmosphere by basically suggesting you calm down a bit.


I'm sure that that happened in the previous AC multiplayer.

I'd got some Amazon vouchers, so I've ordered the Join or Die edition, although I was tempted to save some moolah and stick with standard for what extras you get. The Freedom edition (in the UK) seems to be Gamestop exclusive, an I wasn't paying £80 for a game.

Pretty sure the extra missions will be DLC before too long.

Probably comes down to what you value more. I've also bought the Join or Die edition because I'm a sucker for the historic books type extra and Washington's diary will look really nice next to my AC2 Codex, but I know a lot of people will think it's nuts and I'd be better with one of the others.

Probably best value I've seen is an Empire subscription. £40 for a year with the standard AC3 thrown in a sweetner, or to put it another way buy the game for normal price and get Empire for a year for free.

You're nuts. I've also gone for that edition though. JFKs diary and a medallion I can use as a pretend olympic winner? I'm game.
