Video: Assassin's Creed 3 shows off amazing naval battles

This could be a game in itself

Assassin's Creed 3 provides more of everything: there's more land to cover, whether snowy, sunny or leafy. There are more kill moves, with tomahawk's to the face, bayonets to the sternum and tree-based hangings. There are more side attractions, like hunting and sneaking into camps. There's more of everything, and it's better too.

Assassin's Creed 3 is all over more stunning, a visual beast running on Ubisoft's near next-gen Anvil engine, drastically redesigned since the first Creed. That's most evident in these naval battles where you steer the ship and issue volleys of cannon fire. Seriously, this could be a game in itself. Does anyone miss the tower defense mini games from Revelations? Us neither.
