Doom and gloom has gotten me worried. The game just isn't fun to play?

Is this seriously what most of the people who bought the game feel?

How does ACIII rank amongst

Nah its just GameFAQs being vocal again. The game isn't without its issues but what new game is?

I'd put it on par with AC2, way ahead of BH and RV

In terms of having fun, I think III wins because of the vast Frontier, the improved combat and oceanic combat etc. It's a blast to play.

Behind it is II and BrotherHood, they are equal in many ways for me, Brotherhood have more diversity but not as interesting exploring.

Then Revelations

and WAAAAAAAY down

AC 1.


The ending of AC III however have left me almost despising the entire series.

Much like Liberation, it's good but has a lot of flaws. If it came out 5 years ago it'd be monumental. As is, it feels a little dated.

Desmond's story conclusion is weak, Connor's arc is weird and contrived, there's a ton of sidequests with no real merit to them (you can craft items to sell but they are always less valuable than their base components, what?) it's glitched out the ass and constantly reveals stuff it is not meant to; I got spoilered on a pretty huge plot development by an ingame character biography popping up too early. Connor can attack forts and raise the American flag long before the American flag exists.

I just killed a bear with the Hidden Blade I don't have yet.

Again, like Liberation, I love it. But it is rough around the edges in a way ACII was not.
Oh no, there goes Toh-kee-yoh!

I enjoyed this game thoroughly. And I have put in roughly 6-10 more hours than into the earlier games. The new setting is done very well. In my book AC2 is still slightly better. But maybe there is some bias to that because the jump from AC1 to AC2 was so large.

The ending however, yeah.. Much more dissatisfying than in the earlier games I must say.

Pretty much this. It's my personal favorite game in the series, but it's also the only one that I experienced glitches in. None were completely game-breaking, and they eventually just stopped for the majority of the game. That was just my own experience, though.
I just want Card Sagas Wars. Seriously, I'd do anything, just give me Card Sagas Wars. Please.

Depends on how good you are at lying to yourself about a series you love.

Hell no. It lacks creativity. Nothing new about it is anything to really get excited over. It feels like they thought features would make up for lack of anything significant.
I am prepared to use this:

In the most basic generalization you run around as an assassin being able to kill "templar" troops while doing different missions. Same thing you have always been able to do since AC1.

At its core it hasn't changed much. What really matters is how much fun you get out of the story. And 2nd how much fun you have collecting crap in open world games such as these.

In terms of story and genuine fun. I would say it is as good or better than AC2.

Free running feels worse in this one, I can deal with ALL of the glitches with lies to myself, but not the wonky parkor
