I hope I'm wrong about it. When they revealed it at E3 it just looked like another tacked on thing like den defense that I won't want to bother with, but I'm always down for some crow.

Looks great. I guess I am a little confused how a full scale naval battle fits into the game, though. (Other than its cool).

Watch this be the best naval combat experience in any game ever. In fact i cant really remember any game that does ship combat like this where you are convincingly at the helm of a ship while in battle. Maybe some simulator total war game or something but this feels more.....whats the word......VISCERAL oh yeah

Vita is getting a spinoff based within ACIII with ACIII: Liberation. It isn't getting ACIII.

The E3 demo was solid enough. It's a AAA console game so you're not going to get anything hard or overly complex but it looks ok enough to get the job done. I like that you can board enemy ships after disabling them enough.

Except this is nothing even close to actual naval combat. In fact this might even be a stretch for a Michael Bay movie. I can't help but think this looks absurd and silly.

Patrick O'Brian novels have ruined most depictions of naval combat of this era.

I'm only expecting to see this in one mission. Hoping it'll turn out spectacular though.

I'm ok with it not being all that realistic. More realistic naval combat is like the last few Total War games where if you don't speed it up to max it takes your ships a half hour just to reach the enemy and then they spend another 20 minutes missing each other about 60% of the time. That's not a whole lot of fun to watch.

I'm sorry, but I miss my settings being filled with rich architecture and culture and I miss my gameplay being free running combat. I didn't like the tower defense. I didn't like random boxing matches that looked like Sherlock Holmes and I didn't like all the cart chases and ship battles in the other Assassin's Creed games. They cut the nice setting out. They cut the mystique of finding glyphs and unraveling cryptic mysteries about our past to find conspiracy history secrets and they replaced that with first person platforming and audio tracks.
They even cut the hidden messages that weren't part of the glyph puzzle solutions out and those led to some awesome AR detective work moments finding out more secrets outside the game.

They did it all just to play with the easy conspiracy history idea of the founding of America being a perfect time to write this story in, but the setting has sacrificed all that was left of the Assassin's Creed games I enjoyed playing. Sometimes when you try to be too many kinds of games to stay fresh you end up losing track of the game that some folks got drawn in by to begin with. What the heck is there to enjoy in a forest? Trees? Certainly not enough people, stealth, and buildings to explore and climb.

I just want to do the kinds of things I did in 2 and Brotherhood. More weapons, more combat options and more secrets is all I need. Replacing pieces of the game bit by bit has really worn me out on this game series.

I'll pass and that takes a lot to say considering how much I've followed this series and how much I invested in DLC and LE copies near launch.
