Saying this is 'not a revolution' does this game a disservice. An incredibly immersive presentation of colonisation-era America, the plots are touching (in the early period, anyway - Desmond less so) and is addictive to the point that you will want to get that 100% completion. The meticulous attention-to-detail is tremendous, from the integration of real-life events such as the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington into the plot, to the fantastic naval sub-missions. Having not played Creed before (I only buy Nintendo consoles), AC3 has got me anticipating Black Flag already. The controls are brilliant, the music is fantastic and the overall package is easily worthy of a Gold Award.
I've seen it online for as cheap as £16, and that is crazy money.
