Another great and shining example of the same exact game, with a few pretty kill moves added.
The dialog was so boring I just skipped all of it.
Side missions....boring. Other than the naval missions, which always seemed to be fun. Sadly, the rest of the game didn't take it's que from those missions.
Combat, still very easy. I wonder why it's even been there in any of the AC games at all.
Essentially, if you played the first, you played the second, the third, the fourth, and so on and so on. AC reminds me of Star Wars; something that is just being so milked to death that only the purest, most die hard fans would continue to like what it spews out.
To put it another way. I am thankful for Gamefly, because AC3, much less any of its predecessors is a game I would never buy.
I should also mention I simply stopped playing this game as I just got completely bored with it. Screw playing it just for achievements, I'm returning it for something else. Hopefully the next game will be deserving of a good rating.

I really enjoyed the story involving the American Revolution and the twist in the beginning of the game. However, you don't get too invested into the characters like you do with Ezio in AC2. The gameplay cutscenes where you kill multiple enemies are awesome, but they rarely happen. Also, there are so many glitches throughout the game that it gets annoying. Not to mention the ending will leave you unsatisfied and the 20 minute credits scene is unskippable. Although the freerunning is also improved, it's not as fun as AC2.
