How Assassin's Creed III made talking to people fun
By Samuel Durling

Assassin's Creed III isn't shy about its tutorial

Assassin's Creed 3: Not quite as graceful
By Reggie Carolipio

Reggie's review of AC3 focuses on the integration of its story and gameplay. His verdict? Mixed: "AC3 can occasionally glide through the trees like an Assassin.

By Mark Purcell
