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!
what you will find here is another well constructed assassins creed game. the hook blade is a fun addition and the bomb crafting makes its return. the story is what I have come to expect from these games a barely sensible and lucid tale that contains bits and pieces that those attempting to follow the story will want to see. for the overall story to be the most complete you must collect the animus data fragments and play the Desmond first person sequences on animus island they play like a low budget portal style platformer if your new to the series this game contains the first entry on its disc. play them all if you want a half coherent story but if your looking for the kind of fun this series brings there is plenty to be had with this.
