I like this game, still in the middle of playing it. Honestly, if you enjoyed part 2 then you'd likely like this one as it feels more like an expansion pack. I mean a lot of content here so that is easily an unfair label but it really does feel like I never put down part two and just went on playing the same game from some DLC off xbox live.
Multi-player needs a bit of work as its the same sequence of kill a target, by killing target you reveal yourself as an assassin, so somebody in turn kills you from behind JUST as you killed target. Rinse and repeat.
My great hope for the future editions to this game is to get rid of the money system. Its incredibly boring the fact that you spend less time actually assassinating as you do property management and shopping and touring and climbing. I'm pretty bored and flat out tired of gathering money...to buy a sword, to buy another sword and repairing my armor and climbing towers and igniting towers and all these other repetitive distractions.
I kept finding myself anxious to actually "play the game" but realizing how much more fun "playing the game" would be if I had say, a crossbow. A crossbow cost a ton of loot so for the next 5 hours I'm going to tour towers to open up the area, fight guards, pickpocket townspeople and so on and so on b4 I FINALLY get the crossbow and FINALLY play an actual mission. I think this is only a cringe inducing problem because you did JUST play the game b4 (which feels identical to this game) and worked so hard accumulating a crapload of weapons and armor and money that is now completely gone. You mean I JUST played ten hours of that game and now its time to start over from scratch? Sigh...
