Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U - how the GamePad improves Ubisoft'

Comment on site articles.

There couldn't be a better time to join the creed

If you are not already convinced that Ubisoft's first hidden-blade-wielding outing on Nintendo is going to be spectacular - a clue: we are - then this will send you dashing straight to your Christmas list, pen in hand. Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U shows off exactly what the console is capable of as it whisks you back to the 18th century to play Master And Commander with Assassin Connor Kenway.

Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U - how the GamePad improves Ubisoft'

In two minds over this one. Enjoyed the first two games very much, but the others just felt very much more of the same - I think the new locales and setting will help this one no end. I'll have to give it a try though I think....perhaps.

Easily among my top three games on WiiU. Never played Creed before so it should be even better for me...

I've actually put off buying this for my Xbox (on which I have all the AC games!) so that I can get it on Wii U!

I know what you mean, Brotherhood and Revelations had a very similar control system, and it is starting to run out of steam.
But luckily, the Wii U version promises a fresh genuinaly new experience, possibly more fresh and new than the PS360 versions, dare I say it!
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

Have to say, the first game is slightly off-putting for me, but I might get this in sales

The controls were good, I liked how tight they were, and they refined the free running no end in later iterations of the game, it just seemed to me that something seemed to be lacking....I'm a bit of a nark when it comes to supposed trilogy's too - Two spin off were nice, but a lot of those spin offs were kind of re-treading the same steps as previous games....

If theres any game in the world that I could have with a "3" on the end of it, please jesus - Shenmue 3. :P

I got this on PC and was looking forward to it a great deal..
it starts off and just seems to go on a bit.. You do have to persevere with it a bit but once you reach the part that you are expecting, you will enjoy it.

If this game is ported to 3ds then I'm defiantly getting it. Have played assassins creed 2 at a friends house and it is awsome. :D

Neither do I, but I hope it is.
