ok, to explain my review I will have to address three things. First, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If any have played previous ac games, you'll know there is a difference in movement mechanics. This is my opinion so others might disagree but I feel they lowered difficulty and immersion by the new "fluid" movement system. The tree jumping is amazing however. Second, the story was amazing but honestly, the actor potraying Connor was... mediocre at best. He just lacked any emotion and failed to pull players in. Third, I am being slightly unfair but i believe the death of Desmond just killed it. We spend three games just training him and now he dies. They better have something extremely extraordinary to get back to one of the best series or risk ending up like Halo. That being said, the history was amazing and the gameplay fight mechanics and quests was intriguing. If you think you'll disagree, buy and judge for yourself.
