Ubisoft clearly paid off all the review sites with this one.
Has to be one of the worst games I've played in a while, which is pretty sad because I thought AC2 was one of the best.
By far and away some of the worst ideas imaginable implemented here. Guards with special powers (Usain Bolt type speed), who also can avoid any attack you throw at them, even if they are backed against a wall and my sword actually goes right through them...but they can be grabbed, and have their throat slit at will, even doing this to the same genetically mutated super guards 10 times in a row while their buddies all watch.
Timed events...massively scripted...incohesive story...no leaving Rome...doled out, repetitive missions...only an emphasis on, well, I don't even know because I'm in sequence 7 and still don't really know what the hell is going on.
And I'm sure they'll do the same with Revelations, further milking the game. This is worse than Call of Duty...at least those games take place in different times, this is literally the same characters, in the same cities, in the same country, in the same time...doing the same things as the last game, with the same basic story as the last game and nothing added except magically appearing assassin friends and dumb ideas for missions.
Unbelievable...thank god I didn't buy this nonsense.
