Summary: It's okay, but warning it requires a higher graphics card then the first two Assassin creeds. Also if you want to understand the story line you have to play Brotherhood and the other one (can't remember title) that was before AC III and AC IV Black Flag.
Summary: The usual Assassin's Creed fun is there (great combat and free running), along with new things like trading and hunting. But after a while it gets repetitive and I just wanted straight line the main story line. That being said, the new naval battles are fun and a good break from the more repetitive stuff. Story is a little scattered, and Connor is one of the most bland protagonists ever especially after a character like Ezio. Still good fun overall.
Game is very fun, but I hate that you have to install Uplay under Steam (no spoilers)

Summary: I purchased the Steam download. First, the game is very fun and if you enjoyed Assassin's Creed 2 then you won't be disappointed. But, I have some complains for this product itself as sold on Amazon: 1) This game has a secondary software interface called Uplay (from Ubisoft) that runs under Steam. Uplay is a terrible poorly designed mess of a program that is confusing to use.
Summary: The game itself is awesome. The gameplay continues to be satisfying and adds fun new elements, it looks great even on low settings with a high resolution screen, and it provides a lot of content. Unless you have a really nice graphics card and a powerful CPU, this game will probably lag a lot, even on low, due to poor optimization by Ubisoft on the PC version. I would definitely recommend the console version unless you're very confident in your rig.
