Assassin's Creed III must have been a fantastic game in 2012, and it's still a wonderful experience today. Connor's story is interesting and well told and Connor himself is a hero I can fully buy into as realistic and believable. It comes together in a package with villains who are relatable and not always evil for the sake of evil and the game devotes a ton of time to the character development necessary to have a quality and compelling storyline.

A pack big enough to guarantee tons of gameplay hours. The graphical improvements are evident, but they don't mask some defects in the mechanics of the original game.

I still love Assassin’s Creed III, and I’ve found myself trying to collect everything, reaching 100% on the Remaster. It’s a world I love to play in and one that is still so fun to play. I love sinking hours into this version of Colonial America, where things strangely feel like home, only they look better now.

Assassin’s Creed III Remastered offers high quality and remains a compelling experience. I have no doubt – it’s the best remaster this series has gotten thus far. The developers managed to deliver more than just higher resolution, but then some aspects still seem somewhat undercooked.

Bugs and technical issues that do crop up aside, Assassin's Creed III Remastered is a fairly appealing deal, one that is sure to draw in fans who haven't had a chance to experience previous games just yet. For those that have, this is an offering that may just be the one you need where you can pitch your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 copies aside and upgrade to a more modernized take on the last-gen classic.

Assassin's Creed III marked the end of the mainline series that started this legendary franchise. Now available with updated visuals and new mechanics Assassin's Creed III Remastered provides a much-needed facelift. Giving gamers a chance to not only experience Connor's story again but the underappreciated Aveline from Assassin's Creed III: Liberation. However, it's also plagued with many of the same issues that the original games had. Assassin's Creed III Remastered is a great way to relive these classic titles for both newcomers to the series or veterans.

If you are looking for a stealth game of any sort, or are considering getting into Assassin’s Creed, this game is a must buy. Despite the few issues like unnoticeable graphical improvements and a slow beginning, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered features solid gameplay and a story underneath its surface that more than quantifies the investment.

Rediscover Assassin's Creed III on this remastered versioni s a bit weird. The game still retains a great vision on representing American Revolution, but it's also clear that their ambitions for Connor's adventure were too big. Despite its renovated graphic the game still suffers technical issues both old and new. Only the inclusion of the Assassin's Creed Liberation chapter could still make this game worth a try.

Assassin's Creed III Remastered is a mixed bag. It's repetitive combat and lackluster visuals, strung through with a few bright spots of naval combat and exploration, and unique displays of combat. Narratively, the game is as weak as they come. There's no mystery. Just an obligatory plot to finish the fight between the Assassins and Templars. Not to mention the mumbo jumbo with the First Civilization. The game is frustrating and not worth another look.

The Remaster doesn't differ much from the original version unless we speak about the visuals, if you haven't played this game especially the Tyranny of King Washington DLC then you may enjoy it, although if you went through it before you won't find anything to come back to with the remaster.

Assassin's Creed III Remastered is a collection of the series' black sheep, and it shows in the awkward pacing and quest design, but the new graphical enhancements and gameplay improvements, in addition to the interesting story and the killer Tyranny of King Washington makes it a worthwhile entry to those who want more Assassin's Creed.

There is no appropriate word to describe Assassin's Creed 3 than (contradictory). As the fifth version of the series offers the many advantages and innovations required for any special series after a great recession was the version of Revelations, which was a replica of the previous version, but the better graphics not enough to save it as much as the game lies in the same traps of boredom

Assassin's Creed III Remastered is a simple port of the old game. Graphic improvements are very modest at best. Given the lack of significant unique additions to the formula, this adaptation can be recommended only to the most loyal fans.

For better or worse, Assassin's Creed III Remastered introduces the polarising Connor Kenway to current gen consoles. Aside from some impressive graphical reworking, it is in many ways a simple port: bugs and issues with the original remain largely the same outside of some much-appreciated quality of life improvements and a handful of minor tweaks. Those who enjoyed the original, as well as Assassin's Creed fans who haven't yet played it, will likely appreciate this remaster for what it is, as long as nothing revolutionary is expected of it.

This remaster doesn't bring much in terms of new content, and visual changes that are headlined aren't done as well as they should be. In that regard, it still holds up as a great Assassin's Creed game that is worthy of any fan's money.

Assassin's Creed III Remastered is an adaptation that has its ups and downs. If the overall gameplay mechanics are good and enjoyable and the combat feels right to the player, the game also has several elements that need improvement, such as its hit detection system and framerate. While the overall experience is positive, the game needs polishing to be up to the series' name.

Both Assassin's Creed III and Liberation are titles worth investing time into. They contain tons of content that's fun, and the time setting makes for some interesting scenarios, but the technical issues for this Switch port aren't worth the trade off for being able to play on the go. These issues aren't bad enough that the Remastered editions on the Switch are an unplayable mess, but it's still a mess regardless.

Assassin's Creed III gave you the chance to enjoy some simple yet fun Assassin's Creed action, in a vast, Colonial-era Boston - and now you can carry all that on your backpack. It wasn't perfect, sure, but the same can be said for the rest of the earlier entries as well. The real disappointment here comes from its new, remastered iteration, which doesn't really upgrade things as much as it should - at least when it comes to the Switch, which is the worst of the available versions.
