Assassin’s Creed III Screenshot Comparison: Xbox 360 vs PC

Assassin’s Creed III is a beautiful game, and clearly and expectedly the PC version is the best. But take a look at the screengrabs and compare for yourself. For sake of spoilers, i’m only including comparison screenshots from Sequence 1, Mission 2. Perhaps these in itself are spoilers. But it is so early in the game and late since the console release and even a few weeks from the PC release, I feel okay with it.

Most of the screenshots are identical down to the frame, but I found the 360 images are blown out and the textures aren’t all that detailed. In some shots, the 360 provides a better view where the PC is a bit darker in spots. I think these come down to the brightness settings, though. For all the visual splendor, I recommend the PC version of any Assassin’s Creed game as they are always superior and provide the best fidelity in graphics and audio. But in these shots, the Xbox 360 is no slouch either. I did not have a PlayStation 3 version of the game to play with, so that is the reason why there’s only a comparison as it is. In the future, I’d like to do console comparisons as there will be finer details to nitpick.
