Top 9 cities in the Assassin’s Creed games

7. Boston (Assassin’s Creed III)

You would think America during the Revolution would be a great setting, but the truth is that Assassin’s Creed III never really makes the most of it. Protagonist Connor isn’t a great character, but other Revolution-era personalities like Paul Revere, Charles Lee and Benjamin Franklin fail to shine here too.

This Assassin’s Creed game was also packed with a ton of extra features (like crafting) and side missions (such as freeing districts in Boston and New York from Templar rule) which are not that enjoyable either.

But exploring the Frontier, with its lush meadows and rivers is a refreshing change from the urban settings of the earlier games, and this also made naval combat a keystone of the series. This might not be enough to forget the pig herding and awful chase sequences though, as Assassin’s Creed III is not the perfect game in the series truth be told.

Why we loved Assassin’s Creed III’s Boston: Assassin’s Creed III had its moments, but some dull bits and not making the most of the American Revolution let it down. Its colonial-era cities are a sight to behold though, and trekking through revolutionary Boston in Assassin’s Creed III is enough to get any American history buff excited, no doubt.
