ummm where do I begin with this recent installment, I saw all the trailers for this game and I was so excited like a child let loose in a candy store, one of the trailers has the American army and Connor charging at the British and the ensuing battle looked pretty cool this is what I expected... boy was I let down, the closest this scene came to being true is you running by trenches to miss cannon and bullet fire.
but anyways lets get to the real meat and gravy of faults, with previous installments Altair and Ezio were amazing, you fell in love with them, they were strong confident, calm headed and when things hit the fan they dealt with it, this made you feel cool, and I could never realize how Desmond was such a boring/mundane/terrible character with ancestry such as them, then Connor came into light with this game and that answered all my questions, Connor is a boring hot head to say the least, I will not comment my full feelings on this matter,
the game world itself though interesting with some aspect of open world, does becomes irritating to navigate to a degree, the controls are clumsy, the graphics are not improved, the story is incredibly uninteresting, the characters are also boring, the only character I found a remotely interesting was Thomas Hickey and this was only due to his death speech,
the naval aspect though a good idea, it was not executed to its full potential, so it felt a little added on.
the multiplayer is the same as always as far as I am concerned which I have no issue with
to sum it up the game has lost the flair and assassin aspect that it was based on, bring back the days where you could decide how to kill your target in any manner, not this directed path
