In my opinion the combat was changed for the worse. The setting was ambitious but didnt fit with AC gameplay (2 story buildings spaced far apart). The hunting was so simple and boring it might aswell not even of been in the game. The side missions are even worse with absolutelty no reason to complete them unless you want achievements (assuming there is some for side missions). The story was so poorly executed and uninteresting with very bland voice acting, it felt like I was watching some cheap B movie with horrible actors. Framerate issues and countless bugs. Also a more slight nitpick is I found the frontier to be boring to explore as you knew the only two things you were going to find was animals or redcoats.
I did however like the animations in general and especially the tree running was cool (although I still do like the original AC control scheme) . I had lots of fun with AC 1 and 2, but for me the assassin's creed forumla has grown stale anyway and then on top of that AC 3 just isnt that good of a game in my opinion.
Now I'm not trolling kids. this is called a negative opinion of a game. I'm sorry I dont like your beloved AC3. So seriously don't bash me for not liking the game. I made the title inviting people who didnt like the game for a reason. I know im in the minority but I just really didnt care for AC 3 regardless of a few bugs.
Anyone else feel similar or the same way?
