* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some of the critics who liked the setting and character feel this, that it had the best plot of the series and richest characterization but was hankered down by poor mission design, and weak integration of different gameplay mechanics as well as several bugs which came because of its ObviousBeta new AnvilNext engine.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Following some lackluster novelisations of [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII AC2]], Brotherhood, Revelations and the first game, ''Assassin's Creed: Forsaken'' is a novel that blows expectations out of the water, largely for being mostly original and expanding on Haytham. It also marked the point where the novels got good, and more importantly, ''stayed'' good.

** The setting has also split the fans between those who love it, those who think there were more interesting conflicts going on (the idea of setting it in the Napoleonic Wars crops up a lot from them), and those who think that the American setting is great but would have preferred it to be later down the line (such as in the Civil War era) so that there would be more buildings to run around on, ala ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII AC2]]''.

** With the nature of the setting's timeframe, set during the Revolutionary War, the British and American sides of the community are ''divided'' - this was largely the fault of marketing, which was rather jingoistic, than the actual game itself. Similarly, [=AC3=] had the third biggest launch of any game in the UK (behind FIFA13 and the inevitable VideoGame/CallOfDuty release) - so VocalMinority is in play here.

** Also the critics who later slag the game as a failure for its protagonist and setting, conveniently forgetting its initial critical success and also forgetting, that it is as of 2014, ''the best selling game of the Franchise'' and one of Ubisoft's all-time greatest successes.

** Most found it a breath of fresh air, especially considering American history is mostly glorified fanfiction at this point.

* SlowPacedBeginning: It takes quite some time before you even start playing as Connor, and a bit longer still before he dons his robes and starts assassinating people. The early portions of the game involve much plot buildup and many tutorials, and while pretty much everyone enjoyed the DecoyProtagonist Haytham Kenway, a common criticism of the game is that it takes too long to really get going.
