I played part one, and the game literally put me to sleep. Didn't play any after that, until part3. Hoping it would be fun, it was still super boring. I didn't play very long, but I'm not going to beat myself over the head to enjoy a game.
I had mixed feelings about this game. they altered some of the functions such as the assassin tokens - which are now six individual ones that sometimes calls them all out for you for some reason, however the good news its they recharge pretty fast. you can now hunt (or be hunted by) wild animals and skin them for materials to craft items or sell for money. i was angered by the fact that they sold the game as focusing on the Revolution but barely covered any of it - a bit on the French & Indian War for back ground purposes, nothing on Lord Cornwallis (dont even think he was mentioned), nothing on 90% of the head figures from the time, not even anything on Fort Ticonderoga (which would have been PERFECT for this game. a fort taken over and looted with only a musket misfire, 0 deaths, and 1 superficial injury)
the gameplay was much the same as before with some upgrades (as to be expected). it kinda felt like you were back in the 1700s. graphic were great. everything was pretty good except the ending. it was anti-climatic and pretty weak
