this is the only assassins creed game that wasnt enjoyable. and that's even counting the first one with all the glitches and bugs and lack of gameplay. for the most part, everything is the same. and it's always fun to assassinate someone from on high. but the game was much shorter than normal. there were so many parts of the game and story that were just simply not fun. but most of all, the main character, "connor" is so dang annoying that it makes it not fun to play. i actually started rooting for the templars because connor was so whiny and annoying. it made the game miserable.
I really wanted to like this game. This review is not going to be negative because a majority of my experience was positive.
I made it about 5 hours into the game (just after the first set of missions) The fighting, the story, the graphics...everything to me was good. The issue I have with the game is the check point system. I know that games are supposed to be challenging. However, when you are required to do things stealthy and one small mistake makes you redo an entire mission is just unfair. Often times I was seen by things that were on the other side of a wall or building. Some people have more free time than others, so if you are a casual gamer who does not have the patience to repeat the same portion of game over and over due to tiny mistakes...then I would just watch a play through on YouTube to catch the story.
