2 min read


Assassin’s Creed III will be getting a US release tomorrow, while we’ll be getting it just a day later. Stock is already in stores and there should be no delays with the title at all. those of you eagerly chomping at the bit might be happy to know that the game’s received its first reviews – and they’re looking might promising indeed.

Italy’s “Official Xbox Magazine” has hailed it as one of the generation’s very best games. It’s worth noting that “official” magazines aren’t generally the most trustworthy, but here’s what the said about it anyway:

“An absolute masterpiece to which the experience remains indispensable for any fan of video games and beyond, with a depth of gameplay and longevity unparalleled in the action scene, a game that will remain in the annals for a long time.”

They’ve praised the game’s visuals, it’s new combat mechanics and the environments, awarding it a perfect score.

Spanish site Meristation has also weighed in, giving the game 8.5.According to Meristation;

Su siempre grandiosa presentación deja claro que Ubi sabe la IP que maneja, sobre todo a nivel audiovisual. El apartado sonoro es sencillamente sobresaliente mientras que el gráfico se queda algo por detrás por el mero hecho de tener bastantes detalles y errores sin trabajar del todo, síntoma de los tiempos apretados que se manejan en la sede de Montreal para dar forma cada año a una nueva entrega de la saga.

I have no idea what that means, but I think they think it’s muy bueno. Expect a barrage of reviews tomorrow at 6pm when the embargo lifts.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
