Good, but ultimately not worth owning.

Summary: The game feels like one giant tutorial for the first 10 hours. Seriously. After that when you finally get to the "meat" of the game it really picks up. Ezio is a very likable character, the voice acting is mostly excellent, and the weird hidden conspiracy stuff is great.
Summary: The game itself is fun, good graphics, excellent storyline, and all around entertaining. However the game is easily beaten (I did it in 3 days) and it has zero reply value. I recommend this as a rental instead of shelling out the $50 and beating it in less than a week.
Summary: Wheres the story line? I get revenge within the first 30 minutes. I then kill all his associates, and then kill all the associates' associates. No one even knows why I'm killing them anymore not even me!
Did they really think an Englishman in 1754 would have said: "We're done here" lol?

Summary: Or "goddamn" (loads of those) or "bugs" instead of insects. Shame on Brit actor Adrian Hough for not saying er, chaps, this needs a bit of a tweak. Apart from that it's a beautiful game, although as has been well documented, the main protagonist (when you finally get to him) is rather dull.
Summary: The mechanics are weird and it doesn't make me want to do anything else apart from the main storyline. I never fell in love with the new characters like I did with Ezio and the animations and cut scenes are far less slick. Not impressed tbh.
Summary: My biggest gripe with this game is the time and place it is set. Yes, 18th century America. Possibly one of the dreariest places for free running. Every building looks the same. Brown and made of wood, or maybe brick.
