Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (46):
Kids say (129):

Bigger, better, and bolder than past award-winning games in this series, Assassin's Creed III lets gamers step into an era not seen often in video game lore, interact with famous figures from the period (including Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Paul Revere), and roam across locations ranging from colonial towns to open battlefields to the untamed wilderness of the New World. While violent, the stealthy action is intense and gratifying. Visually speaking, the game looks excellent and features smooth animation thanks to Ubisoft's next-generation Anvil Next game engine. Three years in development, Assassin's Creed III offers both a lengthy single-player campaign and various multiplayer modes. Overall, there's a lot of great gameplay here -- but take heed to the "Mature" warning for its graphic depiction of violence and blood, strong profanity, and occasional sexual references in the dialogue sequences.
