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

Assassin's Creed III isn't shy about its tutorial
By Daniel Castro
Developers these days face the challenge of teaching their game's controls while keeping things entertaining. Daniel examines whether or not AC3's lengthy tutorial achieved this balance. (Hey, at least it's not as long as Final Fantasy XIII's.)
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. I only wish it didn't have as much trouble on the landings." He points to a host of glitches and other inconsistencies that hold the game back from greatness.

By Mark Purcell

Mark lauds the game for this achievement: "By no means am I saying that this piece of digital fiction should be taken seriously from a historical point of view, but ACIII puts players in a position to experience something authentic."
