Didnt get drawn in to this franchise until brotherhood so keep that in mind. This game has the slowest beginning I have ever seen. Once you do get to the main game there are a few cool new additions like hunting (gets old after a bit though). The best and coolest thing in this game is the privateer missions. The graphics and geometries are off the chain! Coolest sea battle engine I have EVER seen! Worth a rent and maybe a buy after a significant price drop. Will however make you want to scream at all the failed pirate and sea battle games since video games came out since they have done such an amazing job! Looking forward to more of it in AC4.
That is about the only thing to it. The cool historical gameplay, that was about it for me. I had a little fun with it until it came to picking locks, and the constant sneaking around and listening, not being caught. Seems alot more of that and alot less of everything that was involved in the last game. I really liked that it takes you to 18th century America, but it just became frustrating with lock picking that was ridiculous. If you moved one bit you have to start over. It also was frustrating when sneaking around and bam even if you were hidden they found you and you would have to start over. Don't know if any of that was a glitch or just happens but it was more frustrating than I could have fun. I give it a 6 because it is still pretty cool historically wise, story, and cinematic wise. Other than that it really isn't for me, I will stick to the older versions.
