Assassins Creed 3 HYPE Thread

Assassin's Creed 3 is the third main entry in the popular Assassin's Creed franchise. This entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise takes place during the American Revolution, a major turning point in the way governments and their people interacted with each other. The game features a new Assassin named Connor, or Ratonhnhake:ton in his native language. Connor is half European and half Native American giving him a direct link into the conflict taking place in the American Colonies. It is unknown as to how Connor becomes an Assassin, but Connor has always fought for justice and fought against the tyrannies in the world. Connor also possesses a strong commitment to his people and seeks to do his best to assist his people while fighting for the greater good.

Connor's journey to fight the Templars takes him from Boston, to New York, to the frontiers of North America. Connor's heritage gives him access to many Native American tools and abillities such as a tomahawk and quickly climbing through the trees of the frontier to go from place to place.

Along the journey, Connor meets historical figures including: George Washington, Sam Adams, Benedict Arnold, King George III, and Ben Franklin. Connor participates in many of the major historical events and battles that took place during the revolution such as The Boston Massacre and the Battle of Bunker Hill.

AAA all the way

AA
#5 Posted by TilxWLOC (1163 posts) -

Amazing series, look forward to this one as I have done with others, even if I can't play it. I'm thinking it'll get AA. Such good games, and this is turning out to improve on that.

I don't get how that puff daddy song makes sense in commercials. I mean the song is fine by itself, but I don't understand how it's good commercial music for an action game where you slaughter a lot of british people.
#8 Posted by cloudff7tm (3975 posts) -

Game is gonna be so good. I kinda lost interest in the series since the two spinoffs, but I'm hyped for this one. I'll go with AAA.

#9 Posted by platniumgamer (3960 posts) -

AAA

9/10

#10 Posted by Avian005 (4112 posts) -

AAA, 9.0

They obviously meant to use It's All About The Benjamins.
#12 Posted by funsohng (28995 posts) -
I even loved AC1 and Revelations. This will be awesome.
#13 Posted by TheEroica (14676 posts) -
You know where this guy stands... AAA all the way.. ill say 9.5 on this one. Masterpiece.
#14 Posted by silversix_ (16892 posts) -
I expect no less than 9.5 but its a game i'm completely ignoring cuz i can't stand AC's boring gameplay
#16 Posted by UnrealLegend (5888 posts) -

Either an 8.5 or a 9.

Game will be amazing.

#17 Posted by Sushiglutton (5713 posts) -
Game looks fantastic and from what I have seen they have done more than enough improvements/additions to make the game a worthy sequel. The fully climbable forest I find particulary impressive and I think is something never been done before (at least not anywhere near this quality). I see no reason why this game couldn't be of RDR quality (9.5). My guess it's still a 9 though. I think it, despite the new stuff, will suffer from being to similar to the earlier games.
#18 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (26752 posts) -

gonna get 8.5'd.

Also my Revolution won't start till WiiU comes out. lol

#19 Posted by locopatho (21562 posts) -
AAA, 9.5 , GOTY perhaps :cool:

gonna get 8.5'd.

Also my Revolution won't start till WiiU comes out. lol

LegatoSkyheart
The revolution is old Batman games? :P

9/10

#22 Posted by spookykid143 (10393 posts) -
9.5. I'm not sure if I should get on the PS3 or just wait for the Wii U version.
#23 Posted by TheOtherTheoG (2287 posts) -

8.5 because, say, minor framerate drops, or something really small and meaningless like that.

#24 Posted by immortality20 (8050 posts) -

Can't see it getting below a 9. I think this game is serious contender for GOTY, going to be awesome!

#26 Posted by EzcapeTheFate (1063 posts) -
5-6 rating on Gamespot. 8-9 everywhere else.
#27 Posted by Heil68 (48762 posts) -
AA is what I'm guessing.
#28 Posted by -Patrick_92- (2168 posts) -

AAA, it may have a chance at AAAA, but a game of that size is bound to have some technical glitches.

#29 Posted by Grawse (4342 posts) -
I have this gut feeling that the game is going to be better than I expect. AAA, can't wait.
#30 Posted by padaporra (3464 posts) -

Looks pretty good, but I have some smalls doubts still. But hype AAA.
.
A shame the PC version will come much later.

Three weeks later is not that bad. I think we will survive that ;)!
#32 Posted by Nintendo_Ownes7 (30917 posts) -

I voted AAA; I might get it on the Wii U. The only Assassin's Creed game I played was the first one and I didn't like it but many users said that the 2nd was better then the first so I'm skipping the 2nd and the spin-offs and just going to the 3rd Assassin's Creed title.

#33 Posted by themajormayor (24552 posts) -
Gonna suck so hard
#34 Posted by charizard1605 (63094 posts) -
AAA is assured. It might have a legitimate shot at AAAA. I have never seen a game this ambitious that actually seems to get everything it is trying to do right. Well, from whatever they have shown us, at any rate.
#35 Posted by ShadowMoses900 (17081 posts) -

I am so excieted for this game, I love the setting and it looks to be on a whole new engine (I hope it is). I am hyping this game a 9 at the least.

Can't wait to see Washington, Madison, Daniel Boone etc....I hope the combat is harder this time around though.

#36 Posted by NoirLamia777 (2332 posts) -

Those collector's editions sure look nice. Voted AA just to be safe.

New DLC that focuses on George Washington if he were the King of England

#38 Posted by charizard1605 (63094 posts) -
Reiterating it for a new day: if ever there was a game with a shot at AAAA, this game was it.

PhazonBlazer

I'm so excited for this. FOX News will spin the story in due time though.

As an American I have no problem with this DLC, I just think this is a cool concept. I think most sane people wouldn't have a problem with a fictional alternate history story in an already alternate history game, but it's still bound to get a lot of misinformed attention on the news.

Damn didn't edit in time :P But yes, I can see it now: "Video Game Encourages Terrorism" "New video game, Assassin's Creed 3, suggests that Washington was an enemy of the United States." "Find out more at 10:00"
#42 Posted by flashn00b (3198 posts) -

Gonna get a 9.0 because bribes.

If you ask me, it seems as if Assassin's Creed is Ubisoft's solution to Activision's Call of Duty franchise.

#43 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11997 posts) -

The Season Pass will be $29.99 and will allow you to get a 25% discount on DLC and allows you to get DLC earlier.

If anyone's interested I played it at Eurogamer, seemed quite good (I'm not really an AC fan).

Graphics and animation were quite nice and naval warfare was pretty different.

So did you enjoy the Naval combat and were the controls pretty good for naval combat?

I only played naval for about 5-10 mins but it seemed to control alright.

#48 Posted by Big_Pecks (5690 posts) -

#49 Posted by BrunoBRS (73435 posts) -
decided to drop by to say that the DLC they just announced is actually a really cool concept. i can see the game getting a 9. here's hope it removes the sour taste left by revelations.
