Assassin’s creed 3 review fails to mention bugs
With just a day to go until Assassin’s Creed III is released in the US, it comes as no surprise that a review has been released early. While we cannot take one review as the basis of what the overall impression of the game is, we can’t help be positive of its 10 out of 10 perfect review score. However, we do have a small issue with this, because it makes no mention of a few reported bugs and what is being described as a horrible ending.
The first Assassin’s Creed 3 review is courtesy of Italy’s XBox 360 Magazine and made a point of praising its combat system, the navel battles and also how immersive the environments are. It’s for these reasons why many critics are suggesting that this is the best from the AC franchise to date.
Once more reviews for Ubisoft’s latest title hits the Internet then we’re certain that it will not be all positive and will be more critical of what some gamers have been experiencing. Some gamers have already got their hands on Assassin’s Creed 3 a day early and they have noted how buggy the game is, and this is not an isolated case either.
However, just remember that you are not really meant to be playing the game just yet, and also the fact that a day 1 patch will help to rectify these bugs. Although this does concern us that developers are still shipping out buggy games to retailers in the first place.
We’re told that the bugs are similar to what we have experienced with previous Assassin’s Creed 3 titles, although those early players have not been too specific. They have said that the ending is bad and is on par with the Mass Effect 3 ending, but they have not elaborated as to not spoil things. We’ve already seen the first 20 minutes or so of gameplay footage leaked on YouTube, and how some gamers did not wish to watch, as they did not want to spoil their experience.
Those of you in the UK will have to wait until Wednesday to get your hands on AC3, and we have already seen that the top three supermarkets vary in prices.
Update: Earlier today we had informed you that Assassin’s Creed 3 had been suffering from several bugs, but at that time it was not known what these were. Since then another review has come to light and has focused on these bugs, which have not only been affecting the AI but also the gameplay, graphics and also the camera angles as well. As to the horrible ending I did not want to spoil anything for the readers, although someone has already done this in the comments.
