This game has the worst controls, most repetitive missions, and makes you want to snap the disc in half 99% of the time. Say you need to catch a guy in 30 seconds, too &% bad because there are 30 civilians that will knock you over, haystacks that you will jump into, and %&$# that you will climb unintentionally. Im not downing all of AC games, just the first. I loved AC2, but this game, is utterly horrible. For me, a good game entertains you. This game has me gritting my teeth in sheer anger 24/7. The informer missions are the worst. And if you move any faster than a snail's pace, a guard will try to take your head off. What the %$ is that? So you have to run or fight, if you run, you attract more guards. If you fight, you leave dead bodies and when you are around dead bodies, you instantly become a target for guards. There are NO arial attacks except throwing knives, which is horrible considering 90% of the game you are on the roof. The combat is horrible, has nothing to do will skill, only timing. It's to the point where you always want to run away because fights are so boring and frustrating. And running is no easy feat. You must break the line of sight before you can hide, and you find yourself backtracking the entire map just to get away. The cutscenes, if you call them that, are snorefests. The BORING storyline will put you to sleep. I understand this game runs smooth, and graphics are great, especially for '07. But a game is not good because it looks like real life. If you want to look at high definition, go the #&%$ outside. Give me a game that will entertain me, not &$#% me off.
