SPOILERS (I'm only saying it once)
5. Assassin's Creed III
Yeah, it wasn't the Greatest AC ever, but that's okay. While the story basically fizzled out due to the lack of a third act, the second act's climax was beauitul, and looking back, Haytham Kenway was not just an amazing villain, but a fantastic character. Connor was cool as well, but lacked a powerful motivation. However, the segment where he killed his best friend was touching and great. The game played quite well, despite it's simple nature.
Parkour and Combat were streamlined yet still fun. Stealth worked well, but only when the game wanted you to be stealthy. The graphics for the game were utterly beautiful. And finally, the Naval Combat and gameplay were completely beautiful and most of all, FUN!
In Short, AC did what AC does best: make an awesome environment with great gameplay.
Final Score: 9.25/10
4. Far Cry 3
Far Cry 3 is a fantastic game that is meant to be played, not analyzed or thought through. It's meant to give the player a adrenaline rush and keep on sending it through. It has interesting and cool characters, like Dennis, Willis and Sam. One of the best antagonists this generation of gaming in Vaas.
I admit that the game loses some steam further into the third act, but the finale was stunning, and the hallucination scenes were great. All around a great game to play.
Final Score: 9.25
Immersive world, interesting characters, beautiful graphics, awesome gameplay and a great story. I don't think i really need to see more.
Final Score: 9.5/10
2. Halo 4
Beautiful gameplay, beautiful environment, beautiful gameplay, beautiful characters, beautiful story, beautiful levels, beautiful multiplayer, just an all around beautiful game.
beautiful beautiful beautiful
Final Score: 9.75
1. Mass Effect 3
Yeah, the ending sucked terribly. But i thought every other part of the game was just about perfect. Sure, looking back it had some other flaws, but they we're comparatively miniscule.
Final Score: 10/10
