I give this game a 8. Everything they kept from brotherhood was great but there really wasn't much new stuff besides bombs, the hookblade, and the occasional zipline. Everything was accessible shortly after getting to main map. Lack of puzzles and the ever annoying collect 100 fragments thing which could be anywhere. (10 throughout the story is reasonable for a main piece of character development) I didn't feel the den defense was that bad rather easy after the 3rd one. Bombs were mostly useless especially the tripwires. The smoke bomb which wasn't anything new. Stickies were hard to get but probably the most fun. Nothing to great about the weapons unless you do the unlocks. No special armors to get that i saw besides unlocks. The gameplay felt the same throughout its entirety. No new "assassin specialty moves" (like arrow storm which was as high as it went far as i found even though you get like 12 assassins) bummed me out. I did like the den defense 3rd was very challenging.
LOTS of bugs had to redo some missions cause of them sometimes. Few collision detection bugs mostly enemy a.i. bugs where they didn't drop agro. All in all game play was semi stale graphics are gorgeous story line was decent but not very in depth like its predecessors. No "whoa's" in the storyline.

It was a pretty good game except for a few things. I hated that you could only play the game online for 3 days and then banned from it unless you buy it with a code. The boss fights in this game are a freaking joke. One of the main bosses I was fighting I kicked him just once since he was blocking and he fell into the water and drowned. Pretty stupid considering its supposed to be a boss fight. But all and all the game was decent but felt as if the time wasn't really put into the game at all. Just the 2 days that I have been playing I have come across 5 major glitches (a few of which I fell through the ground and had to restart the game). So because of this I have it a 7. If you haven't played the series yet don't bother this one you can skip and start clean since the story came to an end and will be starting the next one with a whole new story line.
