The game wasn't as impressive as so many noted... When I see a continuing title, I expect to see better graphics... A more indepth story, but that same great fun... Well in this one the new aspect is multiplayer, which is OK... But it is still great fun if you like this traverse style of run and climbing game genres. Assassins' Creed is a 3rd person climb around game like Prince of Persia... But with a more free-roam feeling with the title[Basically a open world you run around in].
Placed in Rome and continuing right where you left off in Assassins' Creed II... You continue assuming the role as Ezio & Desmond.
Ezio Auditore spared a life and finds he might have made a mistake. In the mean time -- Desmond and his rouge team are seeking safe haven from the, present time, Templars... Both have odds against them as they find their selves seeking retribution against their adversary. Ezio realises he made a mistake and must seek out the Spaniard, whom he spared. Desmond is still seeking the Templar's main goal... To defeat the present time, menace...
The story is on the same line as the previous title and nothing to new about it. There is upgrades you find for Ezio later on but you start out fully equipped. You play as Desmond more often then usual, but mostly in areas Ezio has explored in, but in present time.
The noticeable change is the ability to ride into town/court on your horse. Ezio's mother now is very prominent of him attacking or being a War seeking leader... Lucy, of Desmond's crew, now performs acrobats... A lot of things have changed in the game some irregular or off--completely off--from previous title.
The game multiplayer is OK. You select a character along with 7 other players... You run around a CLOSED area to kill them. Basically a constant cat and mouse game. The AI all look alike in the multiplayer--appearing as other players in game--increasing difficulty or making more annoying.
I wanna snap this game in half because if I do fail, I have to wait in that stupid loading screen. The camera angles get too annoying while trying to chase someone down. I'm on this mission right now and it wants me to kill some guy with my assassins. It says "Go near TARGET and use assassins LB" I have tried this countless times and it WILL NOT WORK. Every single time it makes me want to snap.
Other than those problems this game is very well made, and you can definitely tell the creators put a lot of effort. If they can remove these issues above then I will give it a 10 but for now... 9
