Assassin’s Creed 3 has the distinction of arriving three years after Ubisoft made the series a yearly institution.
While the sort of Assassin’s-Creed-2-side-stories Brotherhood and Revelations were fantastic and great, respectively, the series is at something of a breaking point. Everything since Ezio Auditore da Firenze’s debut in Assassin’s Creed 2 has felt like a more or less inspired retread of similar ground. Assassin’s Creed 3 is a clear reaction to that.
Leaving the old world behind entirely, Assassin’s Creed 3 sees the series go bigger than it has before in the form of an open-world’ish action adventure set in 18th century America. It deals with some of the same themes as previous games, sure — the nature of power, the influence of one person and their ability to make a difference — but it also explores the nature of revolution, the danger of good intentions, and the slippery slope of dogma.
