Assassin’s Creed III
Though it has a three in the title, Assassin’s Creed III is actually the fifth installment in the Assassin’s Creed series. It was named number three because it introduces the third main character. After Desmond’s ancestors from different times, Altaïr ibn La-Ahad and Ezio Auditore da Firenze, the time has come for Connor. The game is set in North America over the years from 1753 to 1783. Thus, what first comes to mind is the American revolution. In Assassin’s Creed III we can be witnesses of the siege of Boston, the great fire in New York or Paul Revere’s night ride. Though the player is thrown into an absolutely new age, the basic mechanisms of play stay the same.
Yet again, we can freely explore vast urban areas, using Connor’s skill and flexibility to move from one place to another swiftly, effectively and spectacularly. However, there have been included some major changes. Eighteen century’s American cities were not nearly as full of high buildings as Rome or Venezia with their cathedrals. That is why Connor spends more time with his feet on the ground, hiding in the elements of the environment like a real stealthy assassin. Assassin’s Creed III is more offensive than the previous installments, too. Connor can counter two attacks at once and he also gets a new useful weapon, a tomahawk. With many minor fixes implemented, fighting feels the same, but has a much better flow.
Connor, son of an Indian woman and a British man, feels great in forests and, generally, in nature. In Assassin’s Creed III the player is not confined in the cities. For the first time in the series, natural environment is actually important and full of interaction possibilities. Our assassin climbs rock and trees, jumping from one branch to another and hunting animals in order to get fur and leather. Apart from forest, we get sea, too. In spectacular sea battles we can directly control a battleship, sinking or taking over enemy units. With all the new options, Assassin’s Creed III is a true sequel.
