Its alright but not brilliant
I was seriously excited by this game before playing it. They have revamped the control system to make it more simple but i found it made the game harder and i was pressing buttons from previous games, why change it? The world is huge and you can explore it all however this makes it very hard to get lost in trying to complete all the side missions. Being able to climb and freerun through trees is a nice touch but its not really essential apart from a few missions. The storyline is hard to follow with the present being confusing and not really linked into the past also with it being wound around an actual historical event and I wasn't really drawn into it like previous games. Also as i said so many side missions going on all over the place. Overall there have been some nice touches added to the game but it feels like they've trying to pack too much into it and not concetrated on the storyline really. Worth a play for fans of the series but previous games are more fun and I don't know how the price is as high as it is.
