The latest Assasins Creed game was a complete failure for me. The graphics are enjoyable but that is about it for the positives. The game offered nothing new or exciting that warrants a purchase of it.
I have enjoyed the series to this point but despite my optimism, nothing has changed to improve the previous releases and it leaves you feeling like you paid for a Rolex but received a Timex in its place.
The normal annoyance of not seeing your character when fighting in tight spots is still present. You can often not look up to see a limb when climbing trees. The hunting addition is cute, but hardly a significant addition to a storied series.
I returned the game before completion. The last straw for me was while in a typical fight with guards in Boston. My noteriety was full and as usual, anyone that sees you attacks. No problem. Then they just continued coming from no where. I fought them for 30 minutes or longer and they just magically spawned as if necromancy was in play. I killed the entire city of Boston's population several times over and had enough. I should mention the concerned citizens wringing thier hands in grief as they continued to stand in the middle of fights instead of moving away.
I have loved the Assasins Creed franchise up to this point. That ended with Assasins Creed 3.

I havent gotten to far into the game though I must say the graphics and gameplay is pretty amazing. The story is still confusing as always one big mystery but it seems worth it . I say try t you wont be let down
