I've been reading user reviews on Assassin's Creed 3, and I've noticed that these are the general complaints about the game.

1. A lot of glitches
2. Slow start, you don't play Connor for a while
3. Control system changed, harder than previous games
4. Combat is harder, lose a lot of health taking down a squad of soldiers
5. Ending is weird

I personally think that we should be glad that I can't think of more that are commonly used. In fact and I'm glad they're in the game.

@ Wakeful: You are just assuming that they are the same people.

Also I never complained about the combat being easy the previous Assassins Creed games. in Assassins Cree in Assassins Creed games based based on it's difficulty.

Just because a few people on the forums at the time considered the combat too easy doesn't mean everyone did. In fact, I imagine most people enjoyed it the way it was. Myself, I can see potential in the many changes they made to AC3, including combat. If they sort out the absolutely massive amount of bugs it will be a great game.

I'm also going off MetaCritic user reviews.

Also, I don't really trust opinions other than my own anymore...

I finished my first play through and the ending was kinda weird and the controls are a little tougher to work with. My biggest problem was the glitches and my system froze about 20 to 30 times to finish the game and even then there were alot of things I couldn't do because of glitches. I like getting platinum trophies and there is currently no way to do that with this game because of glitches.

So you approve of the OP ??

I agree that the combat isn't easy because of the damage you take and my biggest problem was grabbing someone to block the firing line and I still haven't really figured out how to do it. I also agree it will be a much better game when the glitches are fixed and they got worse on my second play through where I can't even get past the first real mission with escorting the two back with the chest. I am probably going to shelf the game until the get it fixed. What a shame because I have reall loved the series. Platinum on the others.

Thanks for saving me from having to point this fact out [again]. This forum was packed last year with complaining & whining that it was too easy to fight - a bore with no risk at all.
So they change it up & here we are - too hard. Makes me want to tear my hair out & I'm not even a Dev. lo

This is the best combat yet imo. Not too easy and not impossibly hard once you get the hang of the new controls & how to use a human shield for gunshots. It's awesome.
Nevermind the new animations they made just for Connor. Best yet.

The only game breaking glitch I've discovered is not being able to complete the Encyclopedia of Common Man.

I had a problem at first too, but I kept using a fight sequence from a mission I was doing to go back & replay it from the savepoint & practice over & over.
You just walk up to a guard standing there & tap the "A" (xbox) & it grabs him. I did it in some fights yesterday & it totally protects you.
(the other thing you can do if you don't master that is notice when the yellow triangles are up & then just run in a circle or get moving away, they'll miss you).
Once you get the controls down, it almost feels a little like the combo buttons in Batman - 'B' to block, then the X, A or Y after you block - if you click 2 of them, he can do a combo move using his gun plus tomahawk or blade.
I never thought I'd like it more than the other AC's, but I do.
