I figured it was about time to get a reviews thread going since the embargo date is fast approaching. I'll start things off with this pseudo-review from PS Access TV:

After watching the Desmond part of this review and the first leaked 20 minutes (if anyone else managed to see it) I'm getting the feeling that Desmond won't like Connor. Truth be told, I don't think he'd be interested in following him, with a "Why is the reason for me to follow an 18 century Tarzan?" kind of attitude, which I like what turn he has in personality = Hater! XD

Quick update


The Day One Patch - has gone live today - so IF you manage to get the game early - please remember to connect to the PSN or XBL to get the patch :)

Haha Desmond got punched by his daddy. His face looks a little strange, but it's a vast improvement on Revelations.

I can picture Desmond being frustrated by Connor's naïvety. Or something.

Okay guys I haven't got the game yet .. But I'm scared as hell ,, I feel I will be disappointed .
Okay :
IGN gave the game an 8.5/10 !!! The same score as revelations ??
CVG gave it An 8/10
Destructoid 7.5/10
Gamespot – 8.5/10
Polygon – 8/10
Meristation – 8.5/10
OXM – 8/10
EDGE 8/10
PlayStation Official Magazine UK – 7/10 !!!! What !!!
And here are the positives:
X360 Magazine – 9/10
OXM Italy – 10/10
Eurogamer – 9/10
G4 – 5/5
Gametrailer –9.2/10
4Gamers – 92/100
Playfront (German) – 10/10
Strategy Informer – 9/10
PS3gen (French) – 19/20
Game Informer – 9.5/10
Okay 8 and 8.5 aren't bad scores at all but this is the same as Revelations and brotherhood :S
I was expecting at least a 9 from most of the sites.
Well I'm getting it tomorrow ,, I hope I won't be disappointed.

My favorite review so far is the gametrailers review, not just because It was a good score, but because he seemed to not be as "new" to what the assassin's creed games are about as the other ones.

Also, alot of the reviews have taken points out because of the slow start, something which I completely dissagree with, I think the starting hours of the game seems amazing, and I am really excited to play it for myself.

So after all the 2 main complaints of most reviewers are "Slow Start and Lots of small bugs" now, a lot of reviewers played the game before the day 1 patch, which is probably why they experienced quite some bugs..

Well the game got a lot of 10/10 but What annoys me is IGN and Gamespot ! They gave a game like COD 9/10 and give this 8.5 ?!! They can't review for ****.
and taking points for bugs?!! Come on they are going to fix it of course that's why there are patches and updates right !!
and taking points for starting slow,,, In my opinion that's a positive (just sayin)

IGN has lost the small amount of credibility they had. rating it the same as revelations? it may not be fantastic but it's better than revelations. and they are ********ting us by giving it less than call of duty. frankly i'm disgusted. but i'm also a little worried. it's not getting very high review scores from all the big sites

F*** IGN, f*** all who gave an average or below average score. I've got the game, I'm playing it, it's so much better than previous ACs that words cannot express (okay I may be being a little dramatic) everything about it is beautiful. Sure there's a few glitches, but they're so minor it's completely unnoticable (for me anyway)

I was particularly looking forward to IGN's score and was completely let down that they put this game on par with Revelations. They'll probably give Black Ops 2 an 18 out of 10. Calling AC3 "inconsistent"? Ha! The only thing inconsistent is their reviewing. Stupid ignorant bastards.

Rant over.

I agree. It's hard to make guys who give 10 out of 10 to games where you just run around and shoot stuff and make them play games with complex stories and different gameplay and also make them enjoy it. This game is great. Screw whatever any reviwer says about it.

"Connor isn't as straightforwardly charming as Assassin's Creed II's Ezio, and although writing is excellent for the most part, you never warm to Assassin’s Creed III’s heroes nor grow to resent its villains in quite the same way." IGN

WHAT!??? AC3 had the best villian in the game and main character. DX

Destructoid also lost all credibility with their ridiculous Re 6 review.
And IGN has always been inconsistent with their reviews. They gave COD BO an 8.5 but it gave MW3 a 9 when BO was so much better.

Edit: They also gave AC 2 an 9.2, I think AC 3 should've been higher...

The whole game deserves 200/100 because 100/100 would be just fulfilling all standards while 200/100 means it's distinguished from any other game. The only disadvantage is the ending. After playing AC games for years waiting for this moment, we literally expected an epic ending and we have every right to do so as such epic game deserves an epic ending not just so rushed and pointless twist.

1 This game has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more side quests and replay value than any other AC, heck even freeroaming is more enjoyable.
2 The platforming levels feel more carefully done, and thus, better. at least to me.
3 Connorīs story has pretty cool plot twists.
4 The missions vary from classical stealth/combat to HUGE "epic" warfare stuff, and LOVE that.
5 Graphics are improved.

The not so good:
1 Although Desmondīs quest is better than before, I had higher expectations.
2 Connorīs main story could be a little bit longer, mostly if you take into account how big is the "building" part of it.

The "ugly"
The "cosmetic plot twist" though hehe, hope it can be glitched.

This game deserves at least a 9, I would give it a 9.5 still.
