I felt like this was a weak attempt to continue the saga without much effort from the developers. The story was boring and uneventful. I'm glad the next AC changed story-lines because I think this one maybe played out. I like the gameplay of AC but really nothing else was special about this one.
I have only played 2 games in the series and I am starting to think that this is the worst series I have ever played! I played Brotherhood for about 3 hours before I couldn't play that anymore because of lockups. Now, this one let me get almost the whole way through the game before it locked up. I wanted to play Assassin's Creed III, but I am not sure I want to waste my time on that game!
