Assassin’s Creed 3: 7 reasons it’ll be amazing


Improved combat

Folks, we live in gilded times. Batman and Uncharted have gifted us amazing hand-to-hand thrills of late, so Assassin’s Creed 3′s new combat is rising to the challenge. It’s using a two handed system that incorporates tomahawks and single fire muskets – clattering inaccurate rifles aside to wedge a tomahawk in a redcoat’s skull is the kind of violence we could get used to. Factor in a context sensitive counter system taking into account the weapons used, and capable of dealing with multiple opponents, and each fight stands a chance of being a significant and unique encounter.
