Assassin's Creed 3 box art
Name: Assassin's Creed 3
Release date: November 20, 2012
Platforms: PC, XBOX 360, PS3
Genre: Action Adventure

Description

Assassin's Creed 3 is an action-adventure developed by Ubisoft and is the fifth (no, not third) title in the Assassin's Creed series. The story follows the fictional conflict of Templars and Assassins on the backdrop of real-world historical events, specifically the events of the American Revolution. You play as Connor, son of an Englishman and a Native woman, who will influence many historical events.

Players play from a third-person perspective, using developed acrobatics (with the ability to climb almost any building, rock or tree) and combat mechanics to solve tasks in an open-world setting, driven by a narrative that players can follow or not follow at any time. There is also a naval combat mode, which sees the player piloting a ship and fighting other vessels.

Recommendation

The game was praised for its open world, combat, side activities, amount of content, and setting. It has suffered many glitches and bugs on release, but those have been largely solved by now. It was also criticized that it took a long time to set up the player before the linear missions ended and the open world truly began.

We would recommend this game if you're a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, don't mind the amount of time this game requires, and like playing in an open world with many side activities.

Key store recommendations

Key resellers are sites that sell game keys at (usually) much lower prices than traditional retailers. They do this through a combination of ways, like selling keys that come in a bundle, that were on a sale and many other ways.

The reason why we separated them from traditional retailers is that these stores have been the subject of a divisive discussion for a long time.

The reason we include them is that you can buy keys on these sites usually for very big discounts, sometimes quite ridiculously cheap. In 99 % of cases, they will work the same as a much more expensive key would. For many people, especially people from countries with lower standards of living, this can mean big savings that have a significant impact on their life, while also playing the game and not resorting to piracy.

If you are buying on these stores, we have a few recommendations to follow:

  1. Just know there is a tiny risk. Either your purchase will fail and you will use your money, or that the key you recieved won't work. It has never happened to us or anyone we know, but it has certainly happened to a number of people on the internet. That is partly the nature of the business, partly un-consumer business practices of some of the stores. In 99.9 % of cases, the purchase will be ok, but sometimes it won't.
  2. If the price is not cheaper on key stores (it almost always is, though), then we recommend to buy from the traditional, established retailers.
  3. If it is a store with multiple sellers with ratings, always pick the one with the highest number of sold keys and ratings. The probability of a successful purchase is much higher if buying from a reputable key seller.
