Assassin’s Creed III Hit Points or Why You Should Be Stoked About Assassin’s Creed 3

We all have our favorite Assassin’s Creed game. Debates over which  game is better and which ruins the series can wage for days in forums with no victor. Yet all that might change for I don’t believe it is just my belief when I say this: Assassin’s Creed 3 looks like it will be the best in the series.

Naval Combat brings me back to the Sid Meiers Pirates days and the wilderness holds a special torch as I love nature and have always wanted a game that incorporated weather on the environment to the degree in AC3.

While I loved Brotherhood’s Multiplayer I haven’t played an AC Multiplayer in over a year but that will definitely change with AC3. With all the deep options available for multiplayer Ubisoft will hopefully continue that delicate balancing act that is asset management; so Single Player doesn’t feel shortened for the sake of multiplayer. As so many other publishers have done this year alone. Horde mode will likely be a personal favorite but Domination potentially steal a special place in my heart.

Now  my only possible concern is centered around the Revolutionary War. I am not a history buff nor can I say I have read all (I have read some) of the founding father’s works but the amount I have read and learned has left me passionate about the subject to put it politely. It would completely ruin the experience if the game’s story made a mockery of the founding father’s work or simply demonstrated a level of ignorance that would ignite a flame war.

Fortunately with Ubisoft saying that Connor won’t choose a side is a good indicator that Ubisoft is just going to avoid the whole issue all together with the events of the war being more of a backdrop for the events of Assassin’s Creed 3 than center stage. All the better in my opinion as I doubt the game would show much historic accuracy (obviously beyond the fiction necessary to set up the story. Example blaming King George for taxes when the founders blamed the banks as the King didn’t set taxes Parliament did and lifted every tax except the tea tax. Guess where that lead? Boston Tea Party).

(yeah I know I’m Nerdy and I know it)

Anyway the game is looking epic and I for one can’t wait to get it when it comes out.
