Oh yeah, and I recently discovered the multiplayer has team game modes. I thought it was solely FFA, I've just been using quick match, but why not include team modes there?

Team modes are present in Assassin's Creed Multiplayer ever since Brotherhood. It's not something new.

And the fort isn't that difficult as well. At first I've been trying it the wrong way so i died some times. But when i got it i discovered thaat it wasn't so hard.

Generally, naval combat rocks. It is totally awesome despite the fact that almost all missions are very easy. Especially when you start fighting the Men-of -War.

I also liked the fact that you could play as Desmond and not only by exploring the cave and its surroundings like in the previous installments. You could actually go on missions with him. However, it was too short and it cannot keep up the interest.

An annoying fact however was the way many optional objectives were organized. For example, in some naval missions, the optional objective says:

sink ships by hitting their weakpoints: 0/2

And you only fight 2 frigates. Unless they both revealed a weakpoint, you just couldn't achieve Full sync. Unless you had the upgrades, you had to make some of your shots miss intentionally to cause the right damage and it was still too risky. Also in the second mission for captain kidd's treasure:

Optional objectives:

Perform running assassinations: 0/3
Stay in a minimum distance with your target: - 40
Assassinate your target before he reaches the caves.

In order to achieve the third, you had to accomplish the first and the second.
But when i am going to do the third running assassination, the camera turns and shows the way your target went off, collapsing. As the camera turns, you have to rotate the stick to make Connor change direction so that you are running straight on the third enemy so that you can do the assassination. And trust me, its much harder than it looks. You have to calculate the amount you need to turn the left sick with the camera always showing your character from the side. I reloaded that point 8 times and i still haven't gotten the full synchronization due to that.

I know, I just didn't see them here due to my tv cutting off parts of the screen. I'm wondering why they don't include them in the "quick match" selection, would be great to play all game modes there instead of the two-three FFA ones they offer.

You may be right but i never explored the modes. I only liked "WANTED" and "ASSASSINATE". Anyway, multiplayer is quite good up until now, despite the fact that Assassin's Creed III is the worst game in the series (worst meaning mediocre to bad, since the others were, at least for me, top.).

I don't know about that... ACI was pretty bad, but I guess it was good considering it was the very first game of the series and was basically a test game to see if the series would be successful.

I just finished it. I think Assasins Creed III is one of the best game of 2012. I like its graphics and storyline. I noticed that Connor not only fights for independence but also takes care of his people. I bought this game at [url=http://www.go2arena.com/assassin-s-creed.html] and i played €20 but it's worth even more.

Yeah, it was good considering it was the first. They got to see what people liked and disliked.

I would say Revelations is the worst in the series, it didn't change much from previous tittles and they took out things that made AC2 and Brotherhood very enjoyable. It felt like they could've released it as DLC instead of a whole game.

Connor is very naive and he acts rashly and foolishly most of the times, like a teenager. I know, he is a teenager but all this Assassin training, studying Philosophy and Logic and abiding by the Assassins' rules, and yet he behaves so foolishly. For example, he was blaming Charles Lee for the death of his mother during the entire game, even when the truth was discovered. He killed John Pitcairn and William Johnson only to seemingly protect his people. Even when they explained, moments before they died why it was a mistake, all he could say was: "Enough" and "I won't listen any more of those lies". Without even saying why. Also, the actor's voice acting for Connor is not good enough as it cannot always show the feelings he is supposed to feel. He calls Achilles old man and mocks him whenever he is angry, but what really made me hate him, was the way he killed Charles Lee.
Just when he was catching up on him, they both fell unconscious and Charles woke up first. After a brief discussion, Connor goes relatively slowly for his pistol and even when he grabs it his hand is shaking and he is delayed. All this time Charles Lee is over him and just looks at him, without doing anything to stop him like Kicking or stabbing him. Later at the tavern, it was a good scene because it shown that Lee has accepted his fate, but none of them said a single word. Not even after Connor stabbed him, when most assassinated targets usually say some last words (Tarik, Juan Borgia, Cesare, Manuel Palaiologos). He is the first character to be assassinated by the player and not speak.

I would say Revelations is the worst in the series, it didn't change much from previous tittles and they took out things that made AC2 and Brotherhood very enjoyable. It felt like they could've released it as DLC instead of a whole game.

I used to totally support this view until I played ACIII. Although they've introduced many new things in that game most of them sucked. Still Revelations is also a mediocre game as it indeed like a DLC.

That's probably the main reason why I play it. The story lines have always been top-notch, and in III the storyline is the best part of the game. The action is pretty good, but it gets bland after you've killed 10,000 British soldiers.

Charles Lee's death was illogical, he's a military man and would have easily killed Connor with a pistol/knife or alerted the pile of Redcoats by the fort near the Last Drink Tavern. To be honest, I liked Charles, I didn't get why he went from a happy, loyal man to "Living in the dirt like animals" It was weird. And the Templars that Connor killed, if they were telling the truth, should have lived. Connor effectively secured the destruction of his people.
