i have to open with that b/c i'm still saying WTH at the ending... Desmond's ending, not Connor's. like any other Assassin's Creed game out, this is an amazing addition. it's everything you'd expect, the combat system, the extra missions, the ability to call in "minions" (other assassins from your crew), i could arguably say this is the best in the series. i didn't want to wait to be able to get it from here, so i redbox'd it early am day of release. i was finished with THE MAIN STORY roughly 48hrs later and i returned it, so i didn't really get to do too much side mission or play around with the economy much. i'll save that for when i can afford to buy the game, which you can bet i will.
i could possibly say this assassin's story was my favorite of the 3. altair's was cool, ezio's was one of vengeance, but connor's... connor's felt the most personal. i was really emotionally impacted by this tale, which is one reason why i gave this a 9 instead of 10 b/c when you get to the endish of the story, you're cheated (not gonna say how), and that really ticked me off b/c i was ready and prime for... yeah, you'll just have to find out playing it yourself lol
the stuff i did experience, such as the slight trading tutorials and whatnot, the two or three naval missions, and some of the new gadgets were welcome additions. while this new economy system seems a bit more interactive and confusing to adapt to, it was nice to not just take an easy way out and buy something or let the game sit there as you collect every 20min. you can actually go out and hunt (also very cool) for items/animals. the ship missions are extremely fun and addicting, and IMO, more enjoyable and than revelation's den defense (which i didnt really care for). the adding assassin's to your crew was one thing i didnt quite grasp how to do, but as always, you can send them on missions to rank up and get some cash that way too. i have to add that i LOVE the way connor moves and fights. dual wielding owns!

loved the previous games and love this. Don't listen to anybodies review before oct 30. Impossible to give a review if the game hadn't come out yet. Still taking time to get use to the controls again, but all is good.
