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.

Yet another excellent entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise. You really can't ask for more when it comes to open sandbox. These games are phenomenal. That's probably why they made five of them. After AC3 I can't wait for number 6.
In spite of the fact that the game is essentially the same throughout the series as far as gameplay goes, they still manage to keep the series new and exciting. I find the story in the series to be quite entertaining.
The graphics continue to improve and this one doesn't disappoint. Check out the backgrounds and Ezio himself--amazing details. I like that they removed the emphasis on item collection since that can get tedious; leaving a limited amount of collecting to be done.
AC continues to build on the successes of its prequels and I look forward to playing the next chapter. On a personal note, I really liked Ezio and was pretty sad that this was his last game...according to what I hear anyway. Great job to the creators for making such an awesome character.
