from some pretty credible sites i've heard that it's pretty fun. a lot of not so credible sites are saying it's boring. truth be told though, almost every action game is slash hack story then more slash and hack. if you like action games, you know what you are getting and won't complain. that said, i plan to rent it and then if i like it, i'll buy it.
All of the missions do boil down to a few repetitive tasks: Beat someone up, evesdrop on soneone, steal something from somone, and then kill someone else.
But its a great looking game, and quite fun to play. If you want to be doing something completely different every second then this isn't the game. But if you don't mind doing the same thing slightly differently, its good.
I still think fleeing back over the rooftops to your base after you kill one of your main targets (there are 9) is one of the most exhiliarating experiences. Every guard watching you on high alert, one toe out of line and the pounce! Great.
And theres plenty of scope to just wander around the world either looking for flags (there are about 420 of them) or just find new free-running lines through the world.
I do think it looks awesome, but some people say it sucks and some people say its great. I am planning on getting a Xbox360 just for that game lol but yeh, I hear its quite repetitive aswell, and I think they kinda spoiled the plot a bit with the anima time machine thingy, they said its set in the crusade era thingy, but hey, the gameplay looks great, and the graphics are immense, I hav not played but I WILLL. :lockd::hahano:
I have to agree with most everyone else that you end up doing the same 4 things over and over. I think the graphics are awsome and the overall premise of the game is good but they could have spent a little more time and added more challenges and made the game play more indepth
