GAME REVIEW: The fifth installment


There are a lot of upcoming games for every platform, but as a gamer with a love for adventure games, I recommend Assassin’s Creed 3.

Assassin’s Creed 3 is the fifth installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The game is a historical action–adventure stealth game. The franchise follows Desmond, a present-day assassin, who is put under a machine called the animus to relive the lives of his ancestors in the hopes that he can find the key to stopping the end of the world.

In Assassin’s Creed 3, Desmond follows in the footsteps of his latest ancestor, Connor. The game is set in the 19th century, during the 1812 war between America and Britain.

This exploration game features areas such as New York, Boston and The Wild Frontier. Players will also meet famous figures such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.

The player’s character, Connor, is an American Indian, which gives him the ability to climb as well as parkour over various obstacles. He is also skilled in the use of various weapons such as a tomahawk, daggers and firearms. Being a Native American, he has knowledge of British politics as well.

The game’s visual graphics are astounding. When I tried playing the game at the E3 convention in Los Angeles, I enjoyed the awesome feeling of running through trees and jumping off buildings.

The player’s character will be able to perform chain attacks and counter attacks without it seeming too sudden. The game’s multiplayer game play is extremely fun because the goal is to hunt while being hunted.

It is a game that won’t be left on the shelf to collect dust. You will want to play it over and over again. Assassin’s Creed 3 will be released by the end of October this year.
