What I played of it was, yes. Still haven't finished it. Got bored after 9 sequences or so and moved on.

Combat was too simplified, the only thing you needed to do was to counter-attack, and it was extremely easy. ACII combat was much more complex, and counters needed to be exact. So yeah, ACII beats ACIII any day, anytime.

Having played all the games I feel the only great game was AC2. AC3 was the final straw for me and I am done with the series.

Such a shame because the first was a diamond in the rough. With the second I thought it was the beginning of an amazing new series. Sadly I was very, very wrong.

AC III was definitely my least favorite of the series (haven't played the first one) here's how the series ranks for me:


Like I stated earlier I haven't played the first one but from what I've read it wasn't that good.

I feel AC3 is a step up from AC2 in nearly every way imaginable. The arena was more balanced thanks to a combination of better AI (still not great but hey) and more balanced weaponry. I guess a counter to that is heat weapons and stun locking from pistols was a bit much. The environments were a major step up from AC2s barren red deserts and brown industrial cavern-buildings. Also the missions were pretty varied and offered a good balance of challenge with fun. Finally, IMO, the mechs just looked way cooler in that entry.
The Tales of series needs more love in America.

I agree with AC 2> AC 3, but no, it wasn't a disappointment to me.

The opposite. It exceeded my expectations in nearly every way, which was no easy feat on its part. The only three complaints I have against the game are:

1. Complete and utter lack of closure in the ending. As far as I can tell, Shaun, Rebecca, and William mean nothing to the series now and probably won't ever be seen again. Lame.
2. Oversimplified combat.
3. The father-son dynamic should have been explored more, IMO. The final scene between Connor and Haytham was very contrived, and it should been in the final chapter, not the penultimate.

In some ways it was. It was definitely a fun game, certainly more fun than ACR. It can't touch ACII or ACBH though. I feel that my opinion of it is influenced by me just being burnt out on the series
