* The first time you actually get to fight as Connor. You've been playing as this skinny little kid for the past two chapters, learning seemingly every aspect living in the woods and climbing trees, and now you're annoying a grumpy old assassin for relevant reasons. Then, said assassin's house is ambushed by twenty bandits and Connor jumps to rescue. The player is kicked right into combat and it turns out that scrawny little teenage Connor is a motherfucking ''beast'' in a fight, and you literally have to kill or concuss every single member of the bandit group except for the leader before you can progress.
** That skinny little kid ''fights bears and mountain lions. And wins.''

* The very opening of the game is awesome. When Haytham climbs up the mast of the ship and gets his first glimpse of America, and the title screen comes, its incredibly epic, comparable to TerrenceMalick's TheNewWorld in evoking the feeling travellers had on seeing America and why they felt it was a new world full of possibility and adventure.

* One of Connor and Achille's arguments, in Sequence 8, when Connor points out that Achilles hasn't been his greatest supporter. Achilles calls him on it.
-->'''Connor:''' Encouraging words from one who thought mine's a fools errand.
-->'''Achilles:''' Make no mistake, I still do. But I can't help but feel some pride in your success.
-->'''Connor:''' ''(gritting his teeth)'' And why should I give ''you'' any credit?
-->'''Achilles:''' ''(stops and turns to look at Connor)'' Then don't. But first return the robe. And the blades. And, and the darts. And the years of training and knowledge I have bestowed on you. Return these, and you words may have some merit.

* Sea missions, hands down. Anything to do with the Aquila or sailing around is a mix of awesome gameplay and VisualEffectsOfAwesome, enough to make many people desire a whole game based specifically on it. It's a boon to anybody who's desired a "true" pirate game, and particularly to those who mourned the cancellation of ''PiratesOfTheCaribbeanArmadaOfTheDamned''.

* In terms of sheer RefugeInAudacity, the final boss fight of ''The Tyranny of King Washington'' tops the end of [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII]]. How do you top a fistfight with a pope in the Sistine Chapel? A boss-fight with President George Washington atop a pyramid (that is an exact replica of the US Seal), with AppliedPhlebotinum {{Magitek}} leading to the rooftop caving down and both Connor and Washington a bloody mess. [[RuleOfCool It's awesome]].

* The first modern day mission where Desmond infiltrates a skyscraper in Manhattan. No Animus simulation this time, Desmond is actually doing it himself, and scaling a thousand-foot building with handholds as small as a steel girder sticking a few feet out from the side. On a meta level, there's something about knowing exactly how high skyscrapers are that makes it seem more real and dangerous. And Desmond does it, showing no fear.

On a story level, Desmond is doing the same as his ancestors have, but he's doing it at heights around ten times higher than they ever did.

** The game really attempts to take an objective stance on the historical events too, portraying them WartsAndAll for the most part (aside from the conspiracy theory Templar Assassin meta plot and all). In this age of video games [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty where]] [[MedalOfHonor pro-American]] [[VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} bravado]] is rampant and probably does a good job of alienating fans from other countries, this one does its best to be all inclusive and informative to boot.
