I'm in love with the Assassin's Creed series, and this game reminded me why. But first I'll start with the complaints since there's only a few and they're so minor...well most of them. -This is the biggest of my complaints. When you are using a shooting weapon, you can't free aim. Why not?? You can only shoot if the person is close enough to lock onto. I would have loved to be able to free aim. I'm a sniper type.
-Minor complaint. As before, when your wanted level (notoriety) goes up ,then wanted posters appear around town. You ripped the poster off the wall to lower your wanted level. That makes perfect sense. I liked that. My complaint was that most of the posters were up on roofs of buildings. What villager is going to see it if it's up near the roof? No one but me and the pigeons.
-I HATE when the only way to save your progress is to wait for the autosave. So many games use that method for saving games. And some days you'll find yourself playing an hour longer than you wanted, just so you could save the game and not lose your progress. What's so bad about letting us save when we want to?
-Early on I bought a great sword. But all the swords that were unlocked after that were lower level swords. So I never got to upgrade to a better weapon. Why would i when one of my first swords was the best?
- It's weird that the game is called "Brotherhood", but the Brotherhood in the game really have nothing to do with the main storyline. They're mostly just for sidequests, even though the game is named after them. Weird. Now for the good stuff.
+Many popular game series are ruined when the next one is drastically different than the last one before it. Settlers was that way, and Final Fantasy too. FF 8 was totally different from FF 7. But Assassin's creed never made this mistake. Everything that was great about the previous ones is still in this one. But they added a ton of more great things. Stuff to collect, a ton of side missions, The biggest city they've ever had...etc + This game followed the most important rule of video game sequels. You gotta have more of everything, and things are bigger and better. + I could keep on playing the game forever and not get bored with it. There's always stuff i haven't tried yet, missions I can do over again if i want to try for a better performance, and more to buy. +There's only one city this time, but it's Rome and it's massive. It's their biggest city so far. +This game reminded me of why I am in love with this series. I can't wait till the next one, Revelations, comes out.
