laundry list of complaints:
under utilized setting, terrible ending, not fun, meaningless time wasting "side missions," game stopped being about assassinations and more about linear hand holding following NPCs, dullest character cast yet, the game struggles to run at a playable framerate, not open ended with constant desynching for trying your own path, tree free running is less open, historical cameos were cheesy and obvious, ubisoft wants to take your money with in game transactions, and I couldn't get through more than 6 hours so I returned it and youtubed the ending for a much better use of my time.
The game itself is just another mark on the declining pedigree of the series and I hate to say it went from breathtaking AC2 to its mediocre sequels and then THIS.
I Loved this series of game from the first one and the 2nd but there all the same now just diff story lines which dissapointed me because when i heard about this game it was suppose to revive the series but it dont it is the same old stuff. I was hoping that this game would make me fall in love with this game but it was totaly not that. I gave it a 5 because i still love the game it use to be. if u never played these game then give this game a try but if u have played the others then just dont wast the money good rent because u can send it back any time but dont was ur money even if it is used.

It's yet another great installment of Assassins Creed from Ubisoft. I really like the smoothness of the game, by that I mean the graphics are awesome and the game kind of has a different feel to it which is great. I noticed they made a bit more challenging combat system which might take a little getting used to but its not bad at all. I haven't played the online yet but I assume its very similar to the previous Assassins Creed games. I never buy single player games and I was never a big fan of Assassins Creed online play but if you do like it, I would recommend buying the game otherwise it's a perfect rent.
