Assassin’s Creed 3 Faced with Bugs and Glitches

The exploits of Connor and his ilk have catapulted Assassin’s Creed 3 into the golden ring with a record breaking 3.5 million figure for the first week. But the game is now getting bogged down by a series of bugs and glitches which have led to disappointment all around. The game which features the half British, half Mohawk, Connor Kenway battling adversaries through the events of the American Revolution is facing dire straits with its troubled game play which has bugged gamers in large numbers.
But there is hope at the end of the tunnel as Ubisoft has promised a patch by the end of this week to fix the spotted bugs in the system. The PC version, on the other hand, would be released with the aforementioned patch and PC gamers can have a better experience as compared to their PS3 and Xbox counterparts. The patch may feel like too little and too late considering its arrival a good 20 days after its release, it may fix up most of the errors associated with the release. Meanwhile, the game is garnering a decent review for its various combat sequences but the most talked about aspect of the game has been its naval fights which have taken it to the next level. Although the game has been marred by missions which lack depth, it has backed itself with some impressive graphics appreciable by all standards. The game which has combined a wide variety of fighting and movement sequences including Parkour has been appreciated for the combat abilities rendered to the character. The naval fights were heralded by Ubisoft’s Singapore Studio headed by Karl von der Luehe and the team has brought about the best round of naval battles to the forefront. Considering the crucial role played by the Navy during the Revolution, Leuhe’s team was inspired from Hollywood movies and a lot of studies of vessels from that era to develop a realistic effect for the battle sequences.
While Canadian paper’s The Globe and Mail have gone ahead and slammed Assassin’s Creed 3 for distorting history, Ubisoft is yet to respond on integrating some crucial aspects of history into their games. The game is understandably pro-American and thus troubling the Canadian audiences. The newspaper reporter meanwhile has gone to the extent of saying that the game ‘might be the only place that Canadian young people are learning about the Revolutionary war’, making one wonder whether it is about the game or the education standards of a country like Canada. The game has even been scripted into a movie with Michael Fassbender of X-Men: First Class fame, playing the lead. The game has registered a triple AAA and for now, Connor has rewritten history with his stellar performance although he may be ‘bugged’ for some time to come!
