At the Beggar’s Opera

I’ll try not to post spoilers in this or future posts about AC3.

The first hours into Assassin’s Creed III are all about setting the scene before getting to sequence 4 and the first look at Connor. It feels a very long intro to the meat of the game and there’s hand-holding aplenty so that the new control layout sinks in.

It doesn’t bother me that I have to sit through this slower pace and I thought the game had a bright opening at the Beggar’s Opera. Then it seemed some of the writing strength went from out of the games sails. Now looking back it’s easy to think that this was a deliberate plan to get you to the closing of sequence 3. You’ll be believing one thing only for it to be turned on its head completely.
