I picked up Assassin's Creed III last night, and I promise not to spoil anything.. so if you're reading this, be fully aware that there are no "Spoilers" whatsoever. I remember Assassin's Creed hitting the shelves, and I had not played it till about a year and a half ago, I was a late bloomer when it came to the AC Series, but I was very impressed by Assassin's Creed. The Stealth aspects were interesting, the gorgeous visuals, great cinematic soundtrack, huge environments, it was all really impressive. Remembering Assassin's Creed, and the ones following, I find myself quite amazed by how much each game improves, even if lets say for example: "Revelations isn't as good as AC II". You can see the ambition and the kind of game they were going for, all of the ideas they were trying to get onto the screen each game, that were improvements over their last installment. Unfortunately, for most companies, they can create a great game and in an attempt to outdue themselves, their sequels are usually a step in the wrong direction, and are not as good as their predecessors. Assassin's Creed in my opinion, has not done too much of this, sure there are some things that are PARTICULARLY best about each game, but in the end when playing AC III, the stealth is much better developed, the graphics are just insane, the world is massive, the combat is much more realistic and free-flowing, and the storylines improve as well. Very few franchises do what Ubisoft has done with AC, there is usually a downfall in at least one installment in most game franchises, but I just give my props to the AC franchise for being, and remaining "Rock Solid".
