Assassin's Creed 3 player defends game as 'masterclass' in storytelling

Assassin's Creed 3 player defends game as 'masterclass' in storytelling

Assassin's Creed fans have been singing the praises of the third game, which some believe is way better on a second playthrough.

Assassin’s Creed III is now over 10 years old, and it seems that more players are beginning to appreciate it than ever before.

Since the title first released, certain aspects have remained contentious amongst the fanbase - protagonist Connor Kenway still gets a lot of hate, even though some believe that he’s deserving of a new game. Perhaps he and the rest of the game have simply aged like fine wine though, because over on Reddit, fans have been coming together to give Ubisoft's 2012 title the appreciation it deserves.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to release later this year - take a look at the trailer below.

Assassin's Creed III is a masterclass in thoughtful storytelling and immersive world-building,” BlueString94 wrote. “I have just finished playing AC3 for the first time since release, and it was miles better than I remember. I was completely blown away by the quality of the setting, the story, the characters, and the gameplay (that gameplay, my God it's something else).”

Others are of the same opinion: “I felt exactly the same. The game did not hit with me at all when I first played. I rushed a fair amount through the story too and missed all the Homestead missions. I played it again years later and made sure to do the Homestead missions and take my time with the story and side content,” TheYhrite replied. “I genuinely did not expect to have such an emotional reaction to that game come the end of it. I’ve felt sad from the endings to some of the games in the series but III is the only one that has made me actually cry.”

AC3 is my favourite in the series. There aren't many games with Native protagonists, let alone with tasteful representation of us in general, so I appreciate the nuance with which they depicted Connor and his people,” unholywonder added. “The fact that it doesn't shy away from showing the darker realities of the Patriots as well is also a plus. And for all the work Connor puts in for the revolution and the Assassins alike, he's rewarded for his efforts by learning his entire village ended up getting driven out anyway, their land 'purchased' by some of the same people he likely fought alongside. I wish there was a proper follow-up on his story & later life.”

There's plenty for Assassin's Creed fans to look forward to soon, including the release of Assassin's Creed Mirage later this year. No official release date for it has been confirmed yet, so watch this space.
