Poor Mechanics Runied My Experience

My previous gaming console was a Wii that I hadn't played in the 2 years. I bought a PS4 back in November 2013 and this was one of the first titles I purchased. Needless to say I took the game back to Gamestop after investing roughly 15 hours in it. The hand-to-hand combat and sword play was nothing more than repetition in button massing, no thought was needed for defense or offense. But what really got me burned up was when I was required to run down individuals (or simply running around on the ground) down allies and side streets and my character kept wanting to run up walls. I think the idea of the game was to remain on roof tops, no matter what, and only come down when interacting with the story line. Infamous Second Son done a much better job with their mechanics in this respect.

Probably the most boring assasins creed game I have played. Very disappointing. I couldn't even stand it enough to blast through the main missions. Everything was either extremely easy or stupid hard. You can't just jump around killing guys anymore it's more of a stealth game now. If I wanted to play hitman I would of, which sucked as well.
