To start, all 5 Assassin Creed games are amazing. But out of all of them, if you have to miss one, miss this one.
And it all comes down to controls. The game takes a bit of a different turn and it doesn't do so well. Its nice thats its different, but its a swing and a miss.
So don't think its a bad game, but not a must play.
I was a game tester for years and could not shake the feeling I was back at work testing a UNFINISHED game. This games graphics and game play are unpolished and clumsy. Somewhere there is a group of Testers shaking their collective heads ' I cannot believe they shipped THAT'.
Stop pushing games out to meet a deadline and make a freaking finished product! I never even completed this game, it was too much like WORK.
