this game is not the best game of the series no game of this series could be better then the second one were you meet Ezio Auditore and you play in Italy killing the Templars before his family was killed for something his father had done years early. Assassin's creed 3 is much better than the continuation of the brotherhood and revelation those were just pitiful games that were just trying to keep Ezio part of the story alive instead of ending the story for him. this Assassin's creed is much better then any of those yes they have changed the free running controls that i don't like but it was for a better flow for climbing though i have yet to finish the game i am on the last mission and all around the total gameplay has been very mucb enjoyed they side missions are fun and the hunting part has ben very fun. trailing an animal then killing it then skining it has showen that the group that has made assassins creed choose to make the game as real as they can. the new moves that you assassin has learned show the evolution of the gameflow through the years. this is by far one of the best games of the year and would be sad to see if this is the last of the games.
