View Full Version : Assassins Creed 3 is worst in series

I am absolutely compelled to write this, as Assassins Creed 3 is and awful awful game to play. It's really frustrating as I love the assassins creed series, but I just don't think i can bring myself to actually finish the story mode

The combat system is dreadful, no where near as fluid as Revelations/Brotherhood. Why was this changed? It's next to impossible to kill an enemy during combat with the the hidden daggers, the gun's take too long to reload, counter kill works only on soldiers (which are few and far between as you progress), and it takes forever to switch between weapons. And it may only be my impression but it feels as if there is a very limited array of weapons to use in combat.

The naval missions are a waste of time - the ship is difficult to navigate and using the cannons seems to be just pure luck rather than any skill.

Liberating the forts is also a waste of time, you get to increase profits of a convoy? but why? there is no point. In the earlier games you wanted to increase your funds so you could collect art, opening shops etc. None of that now exists.

Even side quests, one of the staples of the genre, is poorly implemented. They are often unclear what needs to be accomplished or how to finish the mission.

I'd definitely agree. AC3 is clearly the poorest game in the series thus far. I also expect that AC4 will be even worse considering the ridiculously short development time.

I think a lot of folks actually agree that Ubi dropped the ball with AC3. The game is just a mess in so many ways; gameplay, plot, side missions, characters...all horrible.

The only redeemable quality I find in AC3 is the multiplayer.

The OP clearly sucks at playing the game, friend...

Combat doesn't flow, he finds difficulty killing guards, he`s mad because counter kills only works on soldiers, he can`t navigate the ship and thinks that cannons are a matter of luck...

he CLEARLY does not know how to play and has a massive ego that he cannot admit it, so takes the easy way out and bashes the game instead...

Maybe you can play and actually have skill. that I can respect. even if you thought the game was poor...but sucking at it and then whining ? Nope...

Also, little thing....I thought it was the best in the series....just sayin`

Exactly Gil_217. The "combat" in AC games is so rudimentary and basic a 3 year old could excel at it.

However, it is a common tactic to besmirch the reputation of someone who has a poor opinion of something you like, even if that opinion has more than a little merit.

We're meant to look at Exithole's post and the follow-ups and think "What a noob. Obviously he just isn't good at the game." - however, in this case - I have played the game, I find that it IS less than mediocre, and my opinion is that it is clearly the worst Assassin's Creed released to date.

So does that mean that I too just suck at a game that is so very simple you probably should just hit play and watch it?

From where you come from perhaps. Not common with me...I actually ripped the game apart in some of MY complaints. so this is moot

I`m pretty sure I foresaw this and I`m also pretty sure I clearly made a distinction between someone who sucks at the game and whines and someone who actually has skill, but valid complaints. Saying "Game hard so game sucks" is not in any way a valid complaint.
If you thought it was the worst, because it was hard, then that's your fault..

Sorry, didn't even realize he was in Helsinki - in that case, he did a better job than a lot of Americans with the your, you're thing.

Even so, the original poster doesn't mention difficulty, nor does he "clearly state it". He says basically the combat sucks, which in my opinion it does. Your reply to that is he sucks.

He mentions the naval missions and aiming the cannons (which a captain does? really?) which you don't so much as aim as broadside and hope. So he's pretty much dead on on that. The ship missions while being completely superfluous to the the story were also exercises in frustration. The naval missions were silly and unbelieveable.

He then mentions the convoys and the forts, which while being ridiculously easy to defeat were also completely irrelevant to anything. Did taking a fort do anything to the story? NOPE, not once, but you do get convoy crap, that again is entirely unrelated to anything going on.

The game was poor in his opinion and your response is he just sucks...hmmm. I still think it's impossible to "suck" at an Assassin's Creed game. So if he sucks, does that mean that you think you're great at it or something?

Well...first, you have a long way to go, because you need to learn how to actually READ....Go back to his post. read it properly then get back to us..
His entire post just screams "WAAAA WAAA GAME HARD SO IT SUCKS"

Also, the cannons do not depend on luck...if you thought they did, then just like him, you do not understand how Naval battles are played....Cannons depend on position, timing and aim...their relevance to the story is off-topic, but you saying they`re an exercise in frustration seems to suggest that you too had difficulty in those as well, but also have a massive ego to openly admit it and thus cling onto the famous word "frustration" to hide your apparent incapability of handling the ship mechanics properly.

He said game sucks and perfectly explained why, because it was hard and side missions were bad (Which I agree with) frankly, it`s not anyone`s fault you cannot properly read..

Understand this, when someone says that AC III is the worst in the series and does not mention bugs, then he sucks at it.....

Dude I can beat the crap out jaegers ( I think that's how it's spelled) using only fists. I'm sorry dude but you kinda suck. Don't take it out on the game. The only reason some people didn't like the game is because ubisoft made some of the best content in the game optional, and those whiners are to lazy to look on the map for for it. It had some bugs but most of them were patched. And don't start with dlc patches are ruining games thing because it is one stupidest things I ever heard.

Wow I got away from myself there. Anyway, you most likely just suck at the game.

OK so let's try this:

"I am absolutely compelled to write this, as Assassins Creed 3 is and awful awful game to play. It's really frustrating as I love the assassins creed series, but I just don't think i can bring myself to actually finish the story mode..."

(Nope no mention of difficulty there.)

"The combat system is dreadful, no where near as fluid as Revelations/Brotherhood. Why was this changed? It's next to impossible to kill an enemy during combat with the the hidden daggers, the gun's take too long to reload, counter kill works only on soldiers (which are few and far between as you progress), and it takes forever to switch between weapons. And it may only be my impression but it feels as if there is a very limited array of weapons to use in combat."

Curious, these are complaints about a flawed combat system but still I don't see a mention of difficulty...let's go on, maybe the next statement...

The naval missions are a waste of time - the ship is difficult to navigate and using the cannons seems to be just pure luck rather than any skill.

Ahh the first mention of the word difficult, but wait, he used it to describe the navigation - which is difficult, but it is as it should be - I'd assume moving a ship would actually be more difficult. Still this couldn't be the only reason you say he sucks...could it??? Let's go on...

Liberating the forts is also a waste of time, you get to increase profits of a convoy? but why? there is no point. In the earlier games you wanted to increase your funds so you could collect art, opening shops etc. None of that now exists.

Hmm, no mention of difficulty...curious.

Even side quests, one of the staples of the genre, is poorly implemented. They are often unclear what needs to be accomplished or how to finish the mission.

and finally, still no mention of difficulty here either. So who needs to learn to read?

He doesn't say the game is difficult (PERIOD). He doesn't imply it. He doesn't infer it. He says it is frustrating. Where do you get that he thinks the game is too hard?

I think perhaps you need to just pay better attention in English classes, particularly comprehension.

Nothing the OP said led me to believe he found the game difficult. What is it in "the first one" that makes you think that?

Naaaah You`re just bad at it;)

Actually, I take issue with how quickly you say this in response. Yeah, it's possible that they're blaming the game instead of trying harder to figure it out, but that remains to be seen. You have to talk to them to find out if what they're experiencing is a misunderstanding rather than an actual flaw in the game.

Look, I've read plenty of posts that suggest the game really does take some getting used to and that it might actually be an improvement, provided you get a good handle on the new system, but it's not going to keep getting better if every time someone complains, people just write it off and say "NO, YOU JUST SUCK AT IT!" (and simultaneously think how great they are for being good at it XD )

So don't be so quick to write it off. If the system is really that great, then a tutorial from a practiced player ought to set things right for even the strongest of detractors. More than likely, there ARE some things that can be worked on, if not with the system itself then with the game's tutorial system.

Also I agree with Gi1t. M, you are an awesome dude and it's fun to talk AC with you. However I really dislike your attitude towards new posters who come here frustrated with the game and (implicitly) ask for help. There is absolutley no need to "own" them or make them feel bad about themselves. It's just mean. Also it creates a poisonous atmosphere in the forum that scares reasonable people away. Just think for a sec before you post please ;).

AC3 Single-Player 10/10
In my opinion AC3 has been the best so far. I have found it very enjoyable to play through the story-line and complete all side missions. I rate it a 10/10 and now "The Tyranny of King Washington" how fantastic was that to play, not just a storyline but exploration too. I feel like I just got a new Assassins Creed game and obviously opportunity to endeavour for more. Hope we see "New York", "Boston", "Frontier" and the "Homestead" in this new setting whilst being able to openly roam with the new "Wolf Cloaking" ability. Alongside new elements to unlock. I can't wait for episode 2 ;)

AC3 Multi-Player 7/10
As for the Multi-player side of things, I find it a little bit of a "Let-Down". I would rate it 7/10. I was expecting to be able to do more. I would recommend including a type of free-roam, sand-box environment where players can choose to interact with each other through mini-games similar to that of single-player. Also a counter for counter fighting system that allows you to actually attack and defend multiple players at once. I think it would be great if we could also have the option to play the current multiplayer game modes in its current style whilst using the current fighting functions because its quite fun once you get the hang of it. :)

Many Thanks UBISOFT!

AC3 is not poorest game in the series , i thought it was awesome, it just takes a bit of getting used to and familiarising yourself with Connors movements and controls, personally i think Connor boasts some pretty awesome skills ! some of which i wished Ezio had but then they are two completely different Assassins so it would be wrong to compare the two.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but to judge a game purely because someone cant play the game properly is a pretty lame basis of judgement in my opinion.

AC3 is different and something completely new for the Series.

As for this thread we have been here so many times so swiftly moving on :)

The combat system is dreadful, no where near as fluid as Revelations/Brotherhood. Why was this changed? It's next to impossible to kill an enemy during combat with the the hidden daggers, the gun's take too long to reload, counter kill works only on soldiers (which are few and far between as you progress), and it takes forever to switch between weapons. And it may only be my impression but it feels as if there is a very limited array of weapons to use in combat.

Guns taking longer to reload is more realistic
It's easy to kill enemies with the hidden blades
You have to use certain techniques on certain soldiers to easily kill them. Some you have to disarm, some you have to dodge, some you may have to throw, it's not all an easy counter like the past games
There are actually a large amount of weapons to choose from, it's just that they aren't all introduced to you in a tutorial, which I find to be odd (things like the smoke bomb and poison darts. and hell, they don't even tell you you can use snares as a weapon)

And the combat is actually very fluid if you get timing right and such.

As for the naval missions, you also have to use timing when shooting cannons, and you have to be aware of how many of your sales are out while moving.

By the way, M, is you name Makarios? I'm asking because that's the name of the only Egyptian guy I know in real life (and he invited me to a hookah bar since I recently turned 18 -_-).

One feature tho is extremely well done, which is the combat, I can't argue with the combat design, its the best out of all Ac.

While AC3's combat is a slight improvement over the ones in the past, I still don't get why people praise it so much. The only real difference is that instead of holding down high profile button you're spamming the interact button (E on PC). It doesn't involve any more tactical approach to kill enemies than in prior games. The only ones that can be annoying are the jaegers and you can just rope dart them to death mid-combat.

If he is having trouble playing the game then he does suck at and probably shouldn't play it. Just like I'm horrible at soccer or any kind of sports video games so I don't play them. He even said he can kill anybody with the hidden blades, which means he either isn't trying or just doesn't understand how too play worth eh new combat system. I'm sorry but the only logical conclusion is that he sucks at this particular game.

I personally found this game to be fairly easy, or less than challenging, that is until I tried to get 100% sync. In my opinion, AC3 is definitely not the worst game in the series, and it is getting some pretty unfair/biased comments/reviews, but it certainly isn't the best game in the series either. To me it feels like it is the lightest on story, but only because we switched between 3 characters (Haytham, Connor, and Desmond), and in my opinion they should have fleshed out Connor's mature character a lot more and skipped Haytham and the childhood arc, or just made it a Haytham game. The plot twist was ingenious, but it really seemed to drag out after a strong opening with Haytham. I say this, although, my favorite parts of the game were the Desmond levels, and I would have loved to play a 100% Desmond Miles - Modern Story game- with no Animus.

The combat is too easy. Even my 5 years old nephew can complete a fight with 34 guards without take any damage. LOL

Another problem is that you necessary have to end a combo to kill your opponent. For example: a combo is made up of 4 attacks in sequence, and the last attack is the one which kills the enemy; if I manage to make 3 attacks but then I am stopped, I have to do the whole combo once again to kill the enemy. I've killed a soldier with 13 KNIVES ATTACKS hitting his throat around 4 times (my combos had been stopped like 2 or 3 times). It's ridiculous.

The combat system is just stupid and unrealistic.

The A.I. is terrible too, both enemies' and crowd's one. How many times have you seen people just walking near to you while you're fighting and killing enemies, between blood, shoots, corpses and so on, and they looks like they're not interested or frightened at all?
Anvil Next is good for seasons, but it's TOTALLY INADEQUATE for A.I.

Wow.. It's hilarious to see how peoples opinions go to the extreme to the point of where we make ignorant comments to one another. We are talking about a GAME people. Nothing that has bearing on real life outside these on screen windows and a keyboard. I would say some are very passionate about the series to say the least! I know I am to an extent! But what I've read in the past few pages is just too D@MN MUCH!

Now... To the point of this thread. AC3 it's funny to me how people really think this is the worst in the series! I honestly think by far it's the best written one yet! I'm sure they could have elaborated on more parts but due to lack of time or I'm sure other things that this game got rushed towards the end. For me that doesn't ruin the game. You can still piece together most of it. Boring? Alright some parts moved slowly I guess.. But for the most part I always had something to do! I really sit and wonder sometimes are these people even playing the same game!? How is it that people are still so hung up on Ezio. Yeah He was fun to play he had a run that lasted way to effin long. (Honestly he should have been cycled out after brotherhood--which also should have been a DLC) Ugh.. I just don't understand. Everybody has their own opinion but hey oh well. If everybody agreed then we wouldn't have wars right?

I disagree, the story is the best in the series... ok maybe ACII was better but only by a little, the combat is better because it's not "hold R1 and wait for someone to attack" I find i'm starting the combat way more, it's more streamlined as well.

The navy missions are amazing, so much detail. and if you don't like them... don't do them!

Liberating forts was ok, it'd be better if they made it so you could reset them

The side quests are pretty good as well, again they are there only if you want to do them.

AC3 was not my favorite either. I really really liked the first 4 so much more, in story and in play. Not saying AC3 was terrible, just not my favorite. I loved the music the beauty and missions more in the first 4. I was pretty sure I was the only person who disliked the naval missions. Not hard, just not my cup of tea. I finished them for the achievements but not interested in doing them again. Just my opinion though. I thought Connor was pretty badass lets face it laying into a fort and wiping it out is down right awesome. I do however like the new Infamy DLC, it was very good. It will be very hard for a game to beat out the first 4 though for me.

You should play AC3. Despite all the negativity floating around about it (to which I have admittedly contributed) it's still a good game. It's just that it was a huge disappointment for a lot of people since it was MASSIVELY hyped as the AC that would blow all of the other ones out of the water, but it turned out to be not a grand leap forward, but rather a clumsy half-step. Honestly, without experiencing the hype and dishonest marketing beforehand, I have no doubt you'll have some fun with it. That's why I'm considering going dark on any and all AC news.

I have just finished the Ac1 and now I am working on Ac2 I have brought brotherhood and revelations as well, I am looking to buy ac3 but your replies here have made me a bit reluctant, first I will see the video walkthrough and then buy it. Yes the part 1 was a bit on the lower side with same repitive dialogues again and again but 2 is cool I saw a few moments of 3 as well on youtube it isn't that bad either.

Don't listen to the negativity. The gae is still very good, among the best ACs. Its just that it didn't match up to the hype it was given, like LoyanACFan said. Take away the hype machine, approach the game with reasonable expectation and you'll find a great game.

In my opinion it is the second-best AC. Also I can't take people seriously who are like: We all know AC3 sucks, most people hate AC3.. but don't give proof. As far as I'm concerned polls created here show otherwise. Come on people, if you are voicing your own opinion that's fine but don't lean on the majority stick to lend credence to it.

There is no need to proof. I simple had not the same pleasure in AC3 than in previous games. But I not an idiot wanting that everyone think like me, nobody choose what like. Why most part of people like chocolate and hate verdures? It's the same thing.

The proof that I asked is not for whether you liked AC3 or not, it is for statements like "most fans hate AC3". How do you (I mean not you personally) know that? Its simply not a very intelligent way to debate or to put forth your point when people make blanket statements like these and then say things like open your eyes, or see for yourself, or don't lie to yourself.. when asked for source.

Oh, of course. There is no way to know it without a census.

ACIII wasn't released in best shape ... It should have been in development - and testing! - for several more months, at least. Evidence for this can be found all over the place.

But independent from that the game to me "feels" significantly different to the previous games (ACII, ACII-b, ACII-c in comparison "felt" quite similar). This is due not only (and perhaps not primarily) to the new main character, Connor, the completely different locations (refreshingly different vs. boringly? You decide...), but also due to many other changes in game design, some small, some rather big.

No one of us can predict how YOU will evaluate all these things.

However, in any case I would recommend to wait as long as possible with your purchase. Hopefully there will be further patches till then. And the price probably will be much lower ... Ubisoft already made a great deal TOO MUCH profit with the unfinished product that is ACIII. ;)

Naaaah You`re just bad at it;)

Wow, I saw you in all the threads were people, talking with the truth, are saying that AC III is the worst (That's true). What a fanboy.
The worst thing is that you do not respect their opinions and you want that people respect yours...

I assure you, you don't want to summon the great M. If you do, he will feed on your tears. That is, of course if you are against him. I, for myselft, should be ok, since I think ac 3 is the best ac game made so far, but if you summon him the way you do, I fear for your soul. :rolleyes:

At first I didn't realize the timestamp. And felt odd at the rantings going on. I realized shortly after. hah

Everyone is is entitled to their opinion and AC3 is clearly not for everyone but I must say its my favourite AC game of all time and it was a complete game changer from the combat system to the parkour ( the tree running was fun ) stalking your targets high above the canopies of the forest in a beautiful ambient environment to well executed hunting/economy system , graphically it was awesome and Connor was the sort of wake up the series needed and as Ezio was becoming exasperating and boring, the Naval combat was awesome and I felt black flag really delivered on enhancing the exploration aspect between land and sea.

I do not agree with authors opinion .

I disagree Master Assassin. When the game launched, it was riddled with bugs, the story holds your hand until sequence 6 only to say "oh no, come back" and hold your hand through sequence 7 and 8. That's nearly 2/3rds of the way through the game until it really opens up. This is ignoring the fact that Connor's character and motivations are incredibly hard to connect with, until you do a deep character analysis. While I think analyzing a character should bring out more in them, they should be likable enough from the start. It's not even "He's not charismatic". I love Altair, and he is far from charismatic. But he had a great arc that slowly progressed through the game, whereas Connor had a very strange and hard to follow arc, and only at the end of the game, when he's truly become a man does he start to show a bit of an interesting character that we never get to see again (unfortunately this is the same for Arno). AC3 also had fairly boring side content like the assassination missions, and a few homestead missions were terrible (like chasing the pigs). Modern day had so much content, and while I don't mind killing Desmond if it brought something interesting, the metastory has been dead ever since, and I can't help but blame AC3 for that. Finally, holy **** did I hate the monetary trade system. With a burning fiery passion. I killed some many friggin beavers and bears for that, just to make a few pounds.

That said, I disagree with the author, about why the game was bad. I truly enjoyed the combat and parkour and agree that the parkour through trees, enhanced stealth (too bad it was wasted on **** tail missions), and hunting were fantastic improvement to the game. I always felt the naval combat was too linear and needed something different, like a fully open naval world to explore and fight in to make it better, which was delivered in the next two installments, and did so with more refined hunting and combat mechanics.

TL;DR AC3 had a lot of good and bad parts, but for me the bad outweighs the good, and means that AC3 is currently my second least favorite game in the series.

They go on the thread list and click on the "last" button. That or they search a thread about something precise, they have on their mind, but in certain case threads like they want were made so much back in times that they have to go to the most far away threads from now to find the thread they seek, since nobody cared/remembered of it to talk in it for such a long time. ^-^

Those thread are like a mummy in a pyramid. Nobody knows they they are there, these days, until someone discover them, once again. :p
