You may have guessed by now that I am a huge Assassin’s creed fan. So needless to say the new Assassin’s Creed III was on my “OMG I HAVE TO OWN THIS” list. After a little prodding from a friend (ok, it didn’t take much prodding) I ordered the limited edition of the game. The perks were just too much to pass up!
- Along with a copy of the game, Assassins Creed III Limited Edition contains the essential items for gamers to ignite the American Revolution:
- A stunning 9.44-Inch Assassin statue featuring Connor poised to strike with tomahawk and hidden blade
- An embroidered 28-Inch x 48-Inch Assassins Creed-inspired colonial flag
- A 3-Inch x 3.25-Inch sturdy metal belt buckle to proudly proclaim your allegiance to the Assassins
- George Washington’s Notebook, a unique look into Washington’s life that also includes Assassins Creed III concept art
The flag is now hanging on the wall at my desk at work and the statue is right by the TV. Of course, there was a small delay in getting this to me. Some sort of storm or something. UPS apparently has a hard time driving 2 hours when it’s a week after a huge storm. (I don’t want to rant too much, but UPS sucks sometimes.) Needless to say, I was without the game for a week after release. To alleviate my woes, I signed up for RedBox and rented the game to get me through the weekend.
All that aside, the game is beautiful. It’s everything you could want from a colonial AC game. I love touring around Boston and seeing sights that I have seen in modern day. The story is great and really has me questioning the motives of the last few games (In a good way). Sadly there are still quite a few bugs in the game. Nothing gamebreaking but a few things here and there that really take me out of the experience and potentially have me cussing up a storm. The usual “Stupid Ezio” moments of jumping to the wrong place or to my death are replaced with “Stupid Connor”.
Most of all I just love the sight seeing!
So if you were wondering where I was, Ill be in Boston, circa 1770’s, for a few more Days/Weeks.
