I'm going to say this from the outset, I've had time to put roughly three hours into Assassin's Creed III. Not enough, I've been told, to make a final judgement on the game. So I'm going to hold off on writing too much here, but I fully intend to write something about this game in the coming days. But today is about what you think. I'm sure plenty of you guys and girls spent a lot of time with the game over the weekend. What did you think?
I'll say this: so far, I'm massively disappointed. Assassin's Creed III is buggy, but that's not the biggest issue. The issue is that good mission design appears to be the lowest priority here. Not a single mission so far has been interesting, unique or rewarding on any level at all for me. My three hours spent with the game have been completely frustrating on all possible levels. I'm hoping to expand on this towards the middle of the week if I get the time, but for now I'd love to hear your thoughts — particularly from the people who are closer to the end.
Tell me things get better!
