Ubisoft releases the latest edition of Assassin’s Creed albeit with some bugs in the system which requires a patch on first day. But gamers can satisfy themselves with a high quality product which can deliver the goods…
Fall 2012 is beginning with a bang. There is only a day left for the release of the Ubisoft’s latest ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ which would be garnering a lot of votes this season. The game has already gained the top grades in its review by Xbox 360 Magazine (Italy). The story of the latest assassin, Connor takes place during the American Revolution. Now besides the usual settings of the medieval era, it also features a unique and beautiful scenario of dockyards since Navy was an integral part of the times.
The review gives due credit to the naval battles terming it as one of the most beautiful sequences of all time. It also appreciates the combat systems and extraordinary visual and graphical effects witnessed within the game, terming it as a ‘masterpiece’ in its experience. It also states that the game will remain high on the list of gamer preferences for a long duration. The game will see Connor, a native Indian with British lineage battling adversaries amongst bayonets, cannons and knives during the civil war. Besides the interesting combat options which involve a wide variety of martial arts and parkour moves, gamers will also have their brush with history including stalwarts like Benjamin Franklin along with other heroes from the era.
Ubisoft has meanwhile goofed up on its part, releasing a defective version of the game this time around. Gamers would be receiving games which will require a day 1 patch to play it uninterrupted. The game which is being tried out by gamers is being released with the bug which needs a repair first hand. The gaming company has accepted that the bugs are similar in nature to the ones which were part of the previous editions, it still remains a surprise that the game’s developers missed out on this detail till the last minute. The game play details were leaked online before but it is better to go for the real product although not many spoilers in the game play footage for now. The bugs have not disturbed the game’s popularity as is evident from the game’s top notch reviews.
On the other hand, ‘Meristation’, a Spanish enterprise has given it a score of 8.5/10 but whether this minor disparity will bother gamers is irrelevant for now. Also, the Italian magazine terms it as one of the best games of this generation but it would be facing its competition in the coming two weeks when Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II would be battling it out on consoles as well.
There is also news that gamers can purchase ‘Erudito Credits’ which can unlock a variety of game items in spite of the gaming level. Now, gamers can purchase them directly but can win them across the levels as well. Going by the first round of reviews, the game should maintain the tempo for this season which is going to be one of the most remarkable years for gaming.
