Quick thoughts on Assassin's Creed III

I've been hopping through trees and along rooftops during the American Revolution in Assassin's Creed III, which recently released for Xbox 360 and PS3. Here are some thoughts on the game.

Ubisoft didn't hold back the details, making this setting worth the hype. Redcoats are everywhere patrolling the streets of Boston and New York, which are filled with people trying to get by in life. Historical figures like George Washington, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and more play key roles in the game. There's a unique charm to it that American gamers will enjoy.

Fighting groups of enemies isn't difficult, and it's very Batman: Arkham City-like. The game tells you when they attack, so you can counter and disarm them easily, right before the finishing kill. Regenerating health makes combat easier, too.

Assassin's Creed III has its share of bugs as well, although it doesn't ruin the experience. Frame-rate issues, pop-in, and glitches like floating guns will happen. Patches can fix these things, but since this is such a big release, a little more polish would have been nice.
