Show of the Week: Assassin's Creed III
American history Xbox
If Assassin's Creed has been treading water since the second game, Assassin's Creed III is a sequel that, to extend the metaphor, hires a pedalo and strikes out across the Atlantic. In Revolutionary America, it finds new assassin hero Connor stabbing Templars in a giant sandbox of irresistible distractions.
In Show of the Week, Mike and Andy pay tribute to the series with murderous historical research and an equally safe homemade Animus. There's also a guide for snagging some out-of-the-way achievement points early on in the game. Enjoy!
