What a disappointment this game was. There is no reason whatsoever why it should take six sequences (almost HALF the game) before you finally become an assassin. You spend the majority of the first half of the game training useless skills that you will never need to use again (tracking, hunting, etc) and the naval combat throughout the game is tedious - not fun at all. Connor is by far the most boring assassin (until Arno) to star in one of these games. What a waste.
