Summary: This was the first game I have ever purchased that I didn't finish by choice. I couldn't get into the story, and I just didn't enjoy the missions. I think I suffer from repetitive motion injury from playing too many Assassin's Creeds and doing the same things in every game.
Summary: The worst of the series. This game must have been rushed to production, there was so many instances of Copy-n-Paste material. There is only about 3 unique viewpoints, and all the rest of them are 100% identical to one of those 3. Controls are horrible, especially in combat, you can no longer grab, throw, or kick.
Summary: Assassins Creed has had an amazing run. The story and development has always been top notch. I've bought all the games and played them all again just before buying this one. This one was a let down. It is very different from the other games. You might like it if you approached as a new game and not part of the series because there is definitely some disjoint going on.
Summary: WARNING: This review is being handled differently from my previous reviews in that there will not be an overall score and I won't be going into many of the overall game play and story. This will mostly just be a list of issues I've found with this game. This will probably piss some people off but this is based on my experience with the game.
Summary: While the Assassin's Creed story lines have never been simplistic and sometimes take a while to get into, this one got to be so random I thought there was a glitch. I just couldn't keep up with what was going on. I tried my best, I played 40% of it but it just wasn't keeping my interest. Even though the story and game are interesting, it just didn't translate well into gameplay. They seemed to have taken AC into a new direction only the game makers understand.
Summary: The series seems to be reaching a point of diminishing returns. A lot of the creativity and joy that went into previous iterations seems to be lacking overall, due in large part to the lack of interesting characters and locales. I've played about five hours of the game, and can't force myself to play anymore.
