  1. ACIII’s gameplay looks so legit. But I can’t shake the feeling that he looks a bit out of place. They should have darkened up his outfit a bit. I know the white is his signature look, but he’s supposed to be Native American, I feel like browns would have worked better. Still a must-play for me though.
